Berco S.p.A. (Berco) is committed to protecting any personal information that you may provide to us. In particular, we believe it is important for you to know how we treat information about you that we may receive from this Web site. The information provided for you below is based on Article 13 of Legislative Decree no.196/2003 of the Italian Law – Protection of individuals and other subjects with regard to the processing of personal data.
In general, you can visit this Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. In addition, there are portions of this Web site where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request.
The information collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, or e-mail address. We do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from or about children, and we do not knowingly market our products or services to children.
Use of Collected Information
Domain name information that we collect is not used to personally identify you and instead is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site. When other information is collected from you, such as your name and e-mail address, we generally let you know at the time of collection how we will use the personal information. Usually, we use the personal information you provide only to respond to your inquiry or to process your request (such as to receive electronic brochures/catalogues or to be added to our marketing database). You are under no obligation to provide these data, but if you don’t, you won’t be able to take advantage of the above functions and services and nor will you be able to access or receive the information given to those who do provide the data. The personal data requested by Berco, which the user agrees to provide, are saved in a dedicated Berco databank where they will be processed in full compliance with the Decree. This information may be shared with other Berco businesses, but only if necessary to fulfill your request or for related purposes. We may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies – our vendors – are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. We do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you to any third-parties for their marketing use. We will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are required by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to protect your account from fraud). If you register with Berco online, we may use this information to provide you with custom information about Berco’s offerings in support of your business needs. A technology called cookies may be used to provide you with tailored information. A cookie is a tiny element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. Berco does not use any other type of hidden detection and tracking technologies or coding in its web pages.
