WHY THIS NOTICE
These pages describe the methods and purposes of the management of this website maxmara.com concerning the processing of personal data of the users consulting the site and using its functions, as better described below, as well as current and potential consumers who may consent to the processing of their personal data notified to the stores distributing the products of the brand.
This information notice is published also pursuant to art. 13 of Italian Legislative Decree (D.Lgs.) no. 196/2003 - Data Protection Act to anyone interacting with the web services of the website maxmara.com, which are accessible on-line from the website address:
http://www.maxmara.com on the home page and anyone interacting with the stores distributing the products of the brand.
This information notice also aims as far as possible to comply with Recommendation no. 2/2001 which the European authorities for data protection, within the Group established by art. 29 of Directive no. 95/46/EC, adopted on May 17, 2001 to identify some minimum requirements for the gathering of personal data on-line, and, particularly, the methods, timing and nature of the information which the data controllers must provide users when they connect to the web page, whatever the purpose of such connection.
METHODS AND PURPOSES OF THE DATA PROCESSING
Following the consultation of this website, information may be processed concerning identified or identifiable persons.
It is explicitly declared that if the user has come to the web services of the website maxmara.com, which is managed by Max Mara S.r.l., as a result of advertisements on other websites and/or social networks (Facebook, Google etc.), it is possible that such action may be subject to impersonal and anonymous statistical monitoring in order to control the functions of the advertisements, also for security purposes.
The personal data is processed using mainly electronic or on-line means.
In the stores, the data may also be processed in hard copy and subsequently copied onto the computer platforms.
As a rule, the personal data may be processed differently depending on the purposes for which the user has consented their gathering and use.
In this regard, it is therefore possible to identify three different methods of gathering personal data, and consequently three different levels of processing, as specified below:
The user registers his/her e-mail address exclusively in order to receive all updates and news (sales initiatives, competitions, prize draws, opening of new stores, promotional sales in-store and on-line, cultural events etc.) concerning the brand and all brands of the Max Mara Group.
It is also possible that the data is processed, with the user's consent, to create profiles based on language preferences defined according to the country indicated in the user's website navigation. In this case the purpose is that of arranging for communications to be sent in the most appropriate way possible, in line with the needs and interests of the customer.
b) “Guest” user
The personal data provided by the user is exclusively that required to complete the on-line purchase and manage/perform all phases of the sale, from order preparation to product delivery. In this field, therefore, the data is used and processed exclusively for notification to those parties that Max Mara S.r.l. has appointed to manage and complete the order, who may not however in turn use or process it for other purposes.
In particular, data must be entered in order to proceed with on-line purchases, complete orders and relative activities, manage payments, including anti-fraud controls for credit/debit card payments.
For on-line sales Max Mara S.r.l. uses the services of E-volve Service Sagl, and therefore in this case the data provided during the purchasing process (name, surname, address, credit/debit card number, delivery address if different from the invoicing address) will be sent to the person in charge of the anti-fraud controls for E-volve Service Sagl, with registered office in Via Cantonale 2b, CH-6928 Manno, Switzerland, and will be processed by them solely for that purpose (please also refer to the section on "Data Controller”). In this field, the data may also be used with reference to technical or commercial requests, concerning the state of progress of the orders and general requests for information; Max Mara S.r.l. may also use other companies to perform activities concerning the completion of orders and the delivery of the purchased products. These suppliers will be provided exclusively with the data required to perform their own specific tasks. Max Mara S.r.l. guarantees that such parties may not use the data for other purposes, and that they are also obliged to process the personal data in compliance with this privacy information notice, and in compliance with statutory requirements.
c) Registered user
Users may provide their personal data on-line on this website maxmara.com through specific data entry screens, or at stores, also using paper forms. The personal data of registered users will be used, where explicitly requested, to send Newsletters, notices concerning commercial initiatives and promotions, to send advertising materials and any other promotional or commercial initiative or events, both by e-mail and by post.
The data may also be provided to shipping agencies, telephone companies, editorial companies, advertising agencies, companies specialized in marketing analyses and/or market research, services companies for the management of promotions, including competitions and/or prize draws, to other stores, also on-line, of the commercial chains belonging to the brands distributing the products of the Max Mara Group, consultants and agents, and to the suppliers of the purchased products.
After log-in using their own credentials, registered users may also proceed to purchase the products on-line. In this case, the personal data will also be processed in order to complete the on-line transaction and manage and perform all related phases, from order preparation to product delivery. In this field, therefore, the data is used and processed for notification to those parties that Max Mara S.r.l. has appointed to manage and complete the order, who may not however in turn use or process it for other purposes.
In particular, the data must be processed during the on-line purchase to complete orders and relative activities, manage payments, including anti-fraud controls for credit/debit card payments. During the purchasing process, the data of registered users (name, surname, address, credit card number, delivery address if different from the invoicing address) will be sent to the person in charge of the anti-fraud controls for E-volve Service Sagl, with registered offices in Via Cantonale 2b, CH-6928 Manno, Switzerland, and will be processed by them solely for that purpose (please also refer to the section on "Data Controller”).

The website is therefore structured in such a way that only the the minimum indispensable use of personal data is made.
When the purposes pursued can be performed using data in anonymous form, this will be the privileged procedure, thus excluding that the person can be identified.
