9. Legal or contractual obligation relating to the communication of data.
The conferment of data is mandatory as required by legal and contractual obligations (point B of the purpose), therefore, a refusal would make it impossible for our Company to establish and/or continue the relationship.
The conferment of other data not connected to legal and contractual obligations but referable to commercial, marketing, advertising and promotional activities, for the detection of the degree of customer satisfaction and similar purposes (point C of the purposes), as well as data concerning profiling, point D) of the purposes, is instead optional because data are collected to optimize the relationship with the customer within our business. The refusal to provide data for these purposes, while not jeopardizing the contractual relationship, will make it impossible to propose commercial and promotional initiatives, specifically targeted to the preferences of the counterparty offered by our company.
Therefore, an eventual refusal would imply the impossibility for our company to establish and/or continue the relationship, because it would not allow the entering of your name in the electronic lists that are necessary for the optimal and rational management of our marketing activities.
10. Automated decision-making processes.
Within our business there is no automated decisionmaking process, including profiling, as per art. 22 paragraphs 1 and 4.
