The Data may be communicated to our parent and subsidiary companies as well as the Data Controller’s employees, partners and trusted collaborators both in Italy and outside it.

Data Subjects may always obtain detailed information on the purposes of the processing and the Data gathered for each purpose by contacting the Data Controller at the contact details provided in points 10 and 12 of the Privacy Policy.
The Privacy protocols and standards used by the Company for personal data protection are based on the following principles:

The Data Processing is managed over time by Mr Corrado Lorenzo Mario Di Majo, the in-house representative of the company as per above.
Aside from the Controller, various individuals involved in working in different ways on the organisation of the Site or for the Controller (e.g. administrative, commercial, systems administration staff, hosting providers, employees, partners and collaborators from parent or subsidiary companies) may also have access to your data.
In all instances, the Data Subject may at any time request an updated list of Processors from the Controller.

The Data are collected and processed under the principles outlined in this policy.
Before the data are acquired and/or provided, the Data Subject is given the opportunity to read the privacy policy document and to decide whether or not to consent to their acquisition and storage.
In terms of the data that can be gathered through automated procedures (technical or profiling cookies), explicit consent will be deemed to have been given if the visitor decides to continue navigating the site once the initial banner message has closed.
Consent is requested and can be implicitly provided also when data are collected through automated procedures (technical and profiling cookies).
It is, however, always possible for the Data Subject to request the concrete legal basis for each processing act from the Data Controller, specifying in particular if the latter is based on law, a contract or necessary to the completion of a contract.

The Data are collected and processed fairly using legitimate methods. They are saved only for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes, listed in paragraph 2 of this document, and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.

The Data collected are updated, organised and stored in such a way as to provide all interested parties the possibility of establishing what information has been collected and saved, to check the quality of said information and to request any relevant rectification, completion and erasure as a result of the law being broken or to exercise all of their rights under article 9 of this document, using the means described in article 10.

2.3.5. PRINCIPLE OF SECURITY AND MEASURES ADOPTED The Data collected and processed are protected in such a way as to prevent their being illegally altered or disclosed, using technical and/or computer security measures designed to minimise the risk of erasure, loss (including accidental) or access by unauthorised subjects. These measures are periodically verified and updated in line with technical progress, the nature of the data and the specific characteristics of the processing. Third parties that perform support work of any kind for the delivery of services on behalf of the Company which involve personal data processing, are designated as data processors and are thus obliged to respect processing security and privacy measures for the processing. The information acquired may be disclosed to the following third parties:
Equinoxe S.r.l. , Via dei Mille 18, 10123 Torino, Italy ; parent company.
– SiteGround Spain S.L., Calle de Prim 19, 28004 Madrid; Hosting Provider

The data collected through the web domain and platforms owned by third parties (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn etc..), if present and active, may include: first name, family name, telephone number, tax /social security number, email address, IP connection address, and any other kind of information provided directly by Users, using connections on the web page (“Contact Us”) or the newsletter service.
Generally speaking, the data may be:
a) Data provided voluntarily by Users: Data gathered and processed on the site are necessary to providing services. Consequently, if such data are not provided or consent is not given, services requiring their use cannot be provided.

In the section of the Site designed for Data to be provided, specific information may be provided.
When emails are voluntarily sent to the Controller’s addresses, the latter will acquire the email address of the sender and any other information contained in the message. These Data will be used to contact the Sender and to make it possible for Exquinoxe Yachts International to carry out its maritime brokerage activities.
b) Navigation data: The Site’s automated procedures will acquire certain Data, the transmission of which is implicit in using web communication protocols.
Although this information will not be associated with identified Users, by its nature, if associated with other data held by third parties (e.g. internet service providers), it may allow the identification of the users navigating the internet domain (e.g. IP addresses, domain names of PCs used by users connecting to the Site, URLs of requested resources, time of request, numerical code relating to the response status of server).
These data are used for statistical purposes, to check traffic to the Site and its correct functioning, and to keep individuals signed up for the newsletter of the company’s commercial and other initiatives, informed.
The Controller, or designated processors, save the track of the connections made for a limited period, to ensure they can fulfil all requests from the judiciary, which may legitimately request it when in the process of establishing responsibility in case of computer crimes.
