This privacy statement is effective November 1, 2017.

What personal data do we collect?
We may collect personal data of our workers, candidates, suppliers, business contacts, shareholders and website users. We will always try to give individuals appropriate notice of what data will be collected and how it will be used. Whatever happens, we will only process that data if we consider it fair and lawful to do so.

Will we share your personal data with outside parties?
No, we will never share personal data with anyone outside Granstudio.

What about sensitive personal data?
We do not collect sensitive personal data (also known as special categories) through this site or otherwise. The term "sensitive personal data" refers to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories may include personal identity numbers, financial account information, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, biometric or genetic data, sexual life, or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).

What about data security?
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of personal data collected. Regarding your use of our website you should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that information and personal data may flow over networks connecting you to our systems without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the sites of our partners. If you follow a link to any of these sites, please note that these sites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or sites. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these sites.

Where will your personal data be processed?
As an Italian-based organization, personal data we collect will be processed in Italy only.

Retention of your data
We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary.

Your rights
You are entitled to know whether we hold personal data about you and, if we do, to have access to that personal data and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. We generally do not make decisions by purely automatic means, but if we do, you have the right to object. Contact Us to exercise any of your rights.

You have a question or complaint
If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, or have a concern about our use of your personal data, please Contact Us.

 

WEBSITE

Your privacy on Granstudio’s website
The primary purpose of Granstudio’s website is to be a dynamic resource and business tool to help you learn more about Granstudio. We want you to feel secure when visiting our website and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so.

What information do we gather?
Granstudio collects information at its website in two ways: (1) directly (for example, when you provide information to be called back); and (2) indirectly (for example, through our website's technology).

We may collect and process the following information:

  • Information that you provide by filling in forms on our website. Pages that collect this type of information may provide further information as to why your data is needed and how it will be used. It is completely up to you whether you want to provide it.

  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

  • We may ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.

  • Our website collects information about your computer, including (where available) your operating system and browser type, for system administration, to filter traffic, to look up user domains and to report on statistics.

  • Some details of your visits to our website, the pages you view and resources you access or download, including for instance traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data. Please see the Cookies section below for more information.

When this information relates to or identifies you, we will treat it as “personal data.”

How do we use information that we collect from the site?
We use personal data to provide you with information you request, process online job applications, and for other purposes which we would describe to you at the point where it is collected or which will be obvious to you. For example:

  • To fulfill your requests for white papers, articles, newsletters or other content.

  • For surveys or research questionnaires.

  • To contact you for marketing purposes where you have agreed to this.

We analyze your IP and browser information to determine what is most effective about our website, to help us identify ways to improve it and make it more effective. Please see the Cookies section below for more information.

 

COOKIES

We analyze your IP and browser information to determine what is most effective about our website, to help us identify ways to improve it and, eventually, to determine how we can tailor our website to make it a more positive and relevant user experience. Please see our Cookies policy for more details. By using our website you agree that we can place cookies and other similar technologies on your device as explained in our Cookies policy.

 

MARKETING

The following describes our use of personal data for marketing purposes.

Sources of Marketing Data
The bulk of the personal data we collect and use for marketing purposes relates to individual employees of our clients and other companies with which we have an existing business relationship. We may also obtain contact information from public sources, including content made public at social media websites, to make an initial contact with a relevant individual at a client or other company.

Targeted E-mail
We send commercial e-mail to individuals at our client or other companies with whom we want to develop or maintain a business relationship in accordance with applicable marketing laws. Our targeted e-mail messages typically include web beacons, cookies, and similar technologies that allow us to know whether you open, read, or delete the message, and links you may click. When you click a link in a marketing e-mail you receive from Granstudio, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view and what content you download from our website, even if you are not registered at or signed into our site.

Targeted e-mails from Granstudio may include additional data privacy information, as required by applicable laws.

Marketing Database.
Like many, Granstudio maintains a database to manage and track our marketing efforts. It includes personal data belonging to individuals at our client and other companies with whom we already have a business relationship or want to develop one. The personal data used for these purposes includes relevant business information, such as: contact data, publicly available information (e.g. press releases), your responses to targeted e-mail (including web activity following links from our e-mails), and other business information included by Granstudio professionals based on their personal interactions with you. If you wish to be excluded from our Marketing databases, please use our Contact form.

Combining and Analyzing Personal Data.
As described above, we may combine data from publicly available sources, and from our different e-mail, website, and personal interactions with you. We combine this data to better assess your experience with Granstudio and to perform the other activities described throughout our privacy policy.

Your Rights
You can exercise your right to prevent marketing communications to you by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your personal data, or by utilizing opt-out mechanisms in e-mails we send you. You can also exercise the right to discontinue marketing communications to you, or to have your personal data removed from our Marketing database at any time by using our Contact form. In such cases, we will retain minimum personal data to note that you opted out in order to avoid contacting you again.
