This informative report respects and complies fully with the Recommendation no. 2/2001 that the European authorities for the protection of personal data have adopted on May 17, 2001 to identify some minimum requirements for the collection of personal data online and, in particular, the modalities, the timing and the nature of the information that the owners of the processing must provide users when they connect to web pages, regardless of the purpose of the link.

By consulting this site data relating to identified or identifiable persons may be processed. It is specified that the consent mechanisms will be evident, brief and easily understandable; if the original conditions for which consent was requested were to be changed, for example if the purpose of data processing changed, further consent will be required pursuant to European Regulation no. 679/2016.

According to the rules of the Regulations, the treatments carried out by Mecoil will be based on the principles of lawfulness, correctness, transparency, purpose and retention limitation, data minimization, accuracy, integrity, and confidentiality.

  Scheduling of activities;

  Detection of the degree of customer satisfaction;

  Customer billing history.

The processing of functional data for the fulfillment of these obligations is necessary for a proper management of the relationship and their conferment is mandatory to implement the purposes indicated above.

The legal basis of the processing of Personal Data for the purposes referred to in the previous section is art. 6 (1) (b) of the Regulation as the processing is necessary for the provision of the contracted services.

Communication: your data will be stored at our office and will be communicated exclusively to the competent subjects for the completion of the services necessary for a proper management of the relationship, with a guarantee of protection of the rights of the interested party.
