Privacy and Cookie Policy

This Privacy Policy describes the purposes and methods by which COIMA SGR S.p.A., in its capacity as Data Controller (“Company”, “Data Controller” or “Controller”), collects and processes personal data relating to the user (“User”) who interacts with the website (“Website”) and with the various services it offers.
The information contained in this Privacy Policy is provided under Art. 13 of Regulation EU of 27 April 2016 no. 679 (“Regulation” or “GDPR”), and the Measures issued by the Data Protection Supervisory Authority and the Guidelines of the European authorities.
Information on the processing of data is provided only for the Website and for data processing operations carried out by the Company and it does not extend to processing carried out by third parties on other websites that may be consulted by Users via links. The Company does not accept any liability for this further processing; the User should refer to the individual Privacy Policies of the third party websites

1. Data Controller and place of the data processing

The Data Controller is the Company COIMA SGR S.p.A., based in Milan (Italy), Piazza Gae Aulenti no. 12, 20154

2. Data processing methods

The Company processes the User’s data while adopting all appropriate data security measures to prevent unauthorised access, unauthorised disclosure, modification or destruction of the data. The processing is carried out using both manual and/or electronic tools, using organisational methods and logics strictly related and limited to the indicated purposes.

3. Data processing purpose and legal basis

The Company, through the Website, may process the User’s data for the following purposes:

  • Contacting the Company. The User may contact the Company to request information using the contact details specified on the Website. Personal data provided voluntarily by the User (e.g. email address, telephone number if any or other information freely provided to the User) will be processed by the Company to manage and respond to the User's communications or requests. The legal basis of the data processing is the implementation of the service specifically requested by the User, and any refusal to provide the personal data will make it impossible for the Company to manage and respond to communications or requests for information (art. 6(1)(b) GDPR).

  • For gathering job applications through the “Career” section . The Company offers the User the opportunity to submit a job application to COIMA SGR in the Website section "Work with us" where open positions are indicated and the User may send their CV to the indicated email address. The User is requested not to enter sensitive data in their CV (e.g. related to health status, political opinions, sexual life, etc.), except data that is strictly required by law for CV selection and assessment purposes (e.g. belonging to protected categories). A specific Privacy policy contains Data processing information. The legal basis for data processing is executing a request by the data subject (Art. 6(1)(b) and art 9((2)B) GDPR).

  • Call for tenders participation. The “Calls for tenders” section of the website provides access to an external portal, for viewing and participating in calls for tenders. Access to this area requires an email invitation from the Company. Set the password using the security criteria specified in the invitation email. The credentials are required for access to the area in question. The information legally required for participation in individual calls or tenders is identified each time. The data enables participation and management of tenders. The legal basis of the data processing is the implementation of the service specifically requested by the User, and any refusal to provide the personal data will make it impossible for the Company to manage and respond to communications or requests for information (art. 6(1)(b) GDPR).

  • Pursuing the legitimate interests of the Company or third parties. The User’s data may be used to exercise the rights and legitimate interests of the Company or third parties, for example, handling claims and litigation, credit recovery, fraud prevention or prevention of unlawful activities. In these cases, although the provision of the User's personal data is not mandatory, it is necessary as this data is closely connected and instrumental to the pursuit of those legitimate interests, which do not prevail over the User's rights and fundamental freedoms (art 6(1)(f) GDPR).

  • Fulfilling applicable legal or other obligations. The Company may use personal data that is provided by the User or otherwise acquired during the User's interaction with the Website for compliance with legislative and regulatory obligations, national and EU legislation, ad obligations deriving from measures issued by authorities who are legally authorised to do so, which represent the data processing legal basis, (art 6(1)(c) GDPR).

The data processed will not be disclosed and may be communicated, for the purposes and in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy, to the categories of subjects indicated below:

  • COIMA platform companies, for organisational purposes, internal control purposes, pursue the Company or third-party legitimate interests and carry out the User services/requests (e.g., contact requests);

  • companies, co-workers, consultants or freelancers that the Company uses in order to implement technical or organisational tasks (e.g. IT and web service providers, procurement services), or with whom the Company collaborates (including other COIMA Companies) to provide and operate its own services, or for any communication activities;

  • request the Controller to erase the data (e.g. if the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected, or if the consent on which the data processing is based is withdrawn, etc.);
