PRIVACY POLICY

In this privacy policy of the law firm of Avv. Franco Zambelli and Avv. Annamaria Tassetto, a partnership established in Mestre (Venice, Italy) on 22.12.1978 (hereinafter the “Firm”) intends to describe the working of this website, with specific regard to the modalities whereby personal data pertaining to the users who visit it are gathered, registered and used, as well as the purposes of such processing: this notice has been issued for the website www.ztlex.com, (hereinafter the “Website”) only and is not meant to be applied to the other websites possibly visited by the user through the links on the pages of the aforementioned websites. The Website is run and controlled by the Firm, the “Data Controller”, whose seat is in via Cavallotti 22, Venice, Italy. This privacy policy, addressed to anyone who uses the Firm’s web services, intends to satisfy the requirements set out in art. 13 of the Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 – Personal Data Protection Code – and it also draws inspiration from Recommendation no. 2/2001, adopted on May 17, 2001 by the EU authorities for the personal data protection, that are all part of the Group created pursuant to art. 29 of Directive no. 95/46/EC. This Recommendation identifies some basic requirements for the on-line collection of personal data; in particular, the nature of the information, as well as the timing and modalities of their provision, to be supplied by the holder of processing to the users whenever the latter visit some web pages, no matter what the reasons of their connection are.

PLACE OF DATA PROCESSING

The website is hosted on machines managed by an external company and located in 2 Rue Kellermann Roubaix, France.. However, communications are transferred to the Firm’ servers in order to reply to the users’ requests.

TYPE OF DATA PROCESSED

Navigation data. The IT systems and the software procedures for the operation of this website, while being normally used, collect some personal data whose transmission is implicit while using the Internet communication protocols. The above information is not collected to be associated to any identified persons; yet, its same nature could make it possible to identify users, by means of special processing and associations with other data. The IP addresses or the domain names through which the users connect to the website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of request, the procedures used to submit the request to server, the file size of the reply, the numeric code indicating the status of the server’s reply (successfully delivered, error and so on) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system or IT environment, fall within this category of data.

Data voluntarily provided by the user. The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail messages to the addresses indicated on this website for the sending of the CVs implies the following collection of the sender’s address, necessary to reply to possible requests, as well as of the other personal data, if any, included in the message. Specifically, the users that wish to send their CVs through the Website are invited to pay the due attention to this notice with regard to the processing of data related to them and inserted in the CVs sent. In this way only the processing can be carried out consciously and deliberately. In particular, the Firm points out that the Privacy Code prescribes that sensible data (i.e. personal data allowing the disclosure of racial or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or other beliefs, political opinions, membership of parties, trade unions, associations or organizations of a religious, philosophical, political or trade unionist nature, as well as personal data disclosing health and sex life) can be lawfully processed only by previous consent in writing; it is currently difficult, thought, to obtain such a consent from each user, except by specific modalities (e.g. digital signature). Thus, the Firm’s intention being a legitimate and transparent processing, the same invites those being interested in the on-line sending of the CVs not to include any sensible data in it. The consent to the possible transfer abroad of the data contained in the CV will be requested following a preliminary interview.

PURPOSES OF DATA PROCESSING AND COMMUNICATION

Navigation data are merely used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of website and to verify its proper operation, thus, it will be deleted immediately after processing. The data may be used to ascertain any liability in case of possible IT-related offences to the prejudice of the website: except this circumstance, the data about web contacts will not be currently held for more than seven days.

Personal data provided by users sending their CVs, subscribing to the newsletter, requesting to be sent information on the Firm’ events and initiatives or deciding to use the Firm’s services will be only used to reply to and satisfy the request and will be communicated to any third parties only in the event that it is required for that purpose.

Processing connected to web services provided by this website are run by the Firm’s operators, who were appointed as “People in charge of processing” as well as by external subjects in their quality as “Data Processors” or as “Data Controllers” with regard to the specific activities carried out by them.

The distinct role the Firm’s partners take in relation to the data processing given to them is strictly connected to the specific activity performed. Personal data can be transferred abroad, as far as the above mentioned purposes are concerned, to other Firm’ seats or to professional partners. In that case, the user will have the opportunity to express his/her preference in relation to such transfer of his/her data.

COOKIES

No personal data of users is intentionally acquired by the website. Neither cookies nor the so-called persistent cookies of any kind or any users’ tracking systems will be used for the transmission of personal information. The use of the so-called session cookies (that are only temporarily recorded on the user’s computer and that are deleted as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session IDs (made up of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to perform a safe and efficient exploration of the site. The so-called session cookies used in this site avoid any recourse to other IT techniques that are potentially prejudicial to the privacy of the users’ navigation and do not allow the collection of personal data which may identify users.

VOLUNTARY PROVISION OF DATA

Except as specified for navigation data, the user is free to provide his/her personal data by email to urge information, to submit an application to the Firm by sending his/her CV, to subscribe to the Firm’s newsletter or to take part in the Firm’s initiatives. However, any refusal by the user to provide the above data may impair, in such situations, the obtainment, by the user themselves, of the information requested.

PROCESSING METHODS

Personal data is processed with IT tools exclusively for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it has been collected. Specific security measures have been adopted to prevent any loss of data, any unlawful or non correct use of the same and unauthorised access.

No data deriving from the web service shall be disseminated.
