In the event the services requested from Il Miglio Blue require the processing of this data, you will first receive specific notification with a request for your consent.

Why we need your data (Art. 13, 1st paragraph GDPR)

When you make a request, we receive your personal details (first name, last name, email address, phone number, etc). Your details are used to then reply to your request for information / availability of a pleasure boat for rent. When a pleasure boat for rent is reserved, we receive further personal details. Your personal information is used by the Company to complete the reservation (contract, invoice, crew list). You can sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Social Media and receive updates and can ask at any time to then be removed. In no case will Il Miglio Blue resell any of your personal information to third parties nor use it for any purpose not stated.

In addition, your data may be used for business promotional activities on Services/Products that are different from the ones you purchased, for market research studies involving the Services/Products that the Company offers but only if you have authorized this processing and have not opposed it. This processing may occur by the following automated methods: email, sms, telephone contact. And may occur:
1. if you have not withdrawn your consent for the use of your data;
2. if processing is done through contact with a telephone operator, and you are not registered on the non-call registry as outlined in Presidential Decree No. 178/2010;
The legal basis for this processing is the consent you initially granted for the processing itself, which you may freely withdraw at any time.

The Company will immediately notify you if there is any risk of violation of your data, except for any obligations noted in the provisions of Art. 33 GDPR associated with notifications of personal data violations. The legal basis for this processing is to comply with legal requirements and the legitimate interest of the Company in undertaking processing for the purpose of protecting corporate assets and the security of Il Miglio Blue’s offices and systems. Your personal data may also be processed for profiling purposes (such as analyzing the transmitted data and the pre-selected Services/Products, suggesting advertising messages and/or business offers in line with user selections) exclusively when you have given explicit and informed consent. The legal basis for this processing is the consent you initially granted for the processing itself, which you may freely withdraw at any time.

Communication to third parties and categories of recipients (Article 13, 1st paragraph GDPR)

Your personal data is communicated mainly to third parties and/or recipients whose activity is necessary to perform the activities relating to the contract established, and to meet certain legal requirements, such as:

Companies that rent pleasure boats: Fulfillment of contractual services
Accountant: Accounting services
Banks/Post Offices: Managing deposits, payments, reimbursements associated with the contractual services
External professionals/consultants and consulting firms: Fulfillment of legal requirements, exercising rights, protecting contractual rights, credit recovery
Financial Administration, Public Agencies, Legal Authorities, Supervisory and Oversight Authorities: Fulfillment of legal requirements, protection of rights; lists and registries held by Public Authorities or similar agencies based on specific regulations relating to the contractual service
Formally mandated subjects or those with recognized legal rights: Legal representatives, administrators, guardians, etc.

The Company requires its third party providers to adhere to security measures that are equal to those adopted for you by restricting the scope of action to processing directly related to the requested service. The Company will not transfer your personal data to countries where the GDPR is not applicable (countries outside the EU) except where specifically indicated otherwise, in which case you will be notified first, and if necessary asked for your consent. The legal basis for this processing is fulfillment of the services outlined in the established contract, compliance with legal obligations, and the legitimate interests of Il Miglio Blue to perform the processing necessary for these purposes.

What happens when you do not provide your identification information as needed to perform the requested service? (Article 13, paragraph 2 (e) GDPR)

The collection and processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfill the service requests as well as to perform the Service and/or supply the requested Product. Should you fail to provide your personal data the Company will not be able to carry out the processing associated with managing the requested services.

What happens when you do not provide the consent for processing personal data for the business promotion activities on Services/Products that are different from those prior?

When you do not give your consent to the processing of your personal data for these purposes, the processing will not be implemented for these specific purposes, but it will not affect the performance of the requested services or those for which you have already given your consent, if requested. In the event you have given consent and later withdraw it or oppose the processing for business promotional activities, your data will no longer be processed for these activities, although this will not create negative effects or consequences for you or the services requested.

How we process your data (Article 32, GDPR)

The Company makes use of appropriate security measures to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal data, and requires the same security measures from third party providers and the Processors

Where we process your data

How long is your data stored? (Article 13, paragraph 2 (a) GDPR)

Unless you explicitly express your own desire to remove it, your personal data will be stored until required for the due purposes for which it was collected.

It is also important to add that, should the user forward to Il Miglio Blue personal data that has not been requested or that is unnecessary for the purposes of performing the services requested, or for the performance of services strictly connected thereto, Il Miglio Blue cannot be considered controller of this data and will proceed to delete it as soon as possible. Regardless of your determination to remove the data, your personal information will be, in any case, stored according to the terms outlined in current law and/or national regulations, for the exclusive purpose of guaranteeing specific requirements, applicable to certain Services. Furthermore, personal data will in any case be stored to comply with obligations (e.g. tax and accounting purposes) which may continue even after termination of the contract (Art. 2220 Civil Code); for these purposes, the Company shall retain only the data necessary to complete these activities.
