We inform you that, as provided for by the personal data protection code, BETA can use – without the customer’s explicit consent –your personal data for direct selling of products similar to those you have already purchased, unless you refuse to allow such use of the postal address you gave us

Personal data processing methods

The processing of your personal data is carried out mainly by means of information systems and electronic devices by BETA and other entities or persons carefully chosen in terms of reliability and competence to perform operations that are instrumental to the pursuit of the purposes strictly connected to use of the website, its services and the purchase of products from the website (see below "Entities or persons authorized to process your personal data ").

The specific purposes for which your personal data are processed, are summarized each time you supply your personal data, in the informative notice presented in compliance with ex art. 13 of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003.

As a general rule, your data are treated to supply the following services available on our website:

1. Registration to the website to use the services offered therein;

2. Assent to specific and other services, like our Brooksfield newsletter and similar information about our activities, the creation of a Wish List to share its contents with others, inviting friends to join the Brooksfield world;
3. Execution of orders and related activities;
4. Management of requests: technical, commercial, order progress and requests for information in a broader sense;

Your personal data shall not be disseminated, which means disclosing personal data to unidentified entities, in any form whatsoever, including by making available or interrogating such data. Your data may, however, be communicated by us to one or more entities as specified below:

1. Persons in charge of the processing of your personal data, within our company;
2. Persons or entities which may access your data in virtue of the provisions laid down by law, community regulations or rules, within the limits prescribed by such regulations;
3. Persons or entities which need to access your data for reasons not directly related to the relationship between you and us, to the extent strictly required to perform such ancillary tasks entrusted to them (for example, banks or intermediaries);
4. Persons, our consultants, to the extend necessary to carry out their tasks at our company.

In processing personal data that may, either directly or indirectly, identify you, we aim at respecting the principle of strict need.

This is why we have configured the website in order to minimising the processing of your personal data, using anonymous data wherever possible (like for example, in market research for improving services).

In certain cases, as expressly stated in the Information Notice, your personal data may be subject – with your express consent – to processing aimed at creating profiles based on your preferences and purchases. The aim is to send you information targeting your needs and interests. Without prejudice to the case laid down in art. 130, par. 4, of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 (according to which the data controller may use the personal data to send advertising e-mails for its products and services similar to those already purchased, unless you refuse such use), BETA may use your personal data to send advertising materials on its products and services only subject to your consent

Any other type of processing other than that related to the specific purpose for which you communicated your personal data, will be indicated in the informative notice and will be carried out by BETA only after receiving your express consent thereto (this is the case, for example, of profiling activities based on the customer’s preferences and purchasing behaviour).

BETA may have access and process personal data of third parties, directly communicated by its users to BETA, when for example the user has bought a product to deliver to a friend, or when the person paying for the purchase of the product is different from the person receiving the product, or again, when the user intends to recommend a Brooksfield.com service or the offer of a particular product to a friend.

In such cases, BETA will ensure that the third party receives the information notice provided for in art. 13, of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 at the time of recording his/her personal data in its database; in all cases it will be your responsibility to obtain the consent from this person before sending such data to BETA, and to inform him/her of this Privacy Policy, since you will be the sole responsible for the disclosure of information and data regarding such third parties, without them having expressed their consent, and for any illegal or improper use of such information.

We inform you that the consent of these persons is not necessary when their data are disclosed to BETA to enter into a contract with BETA in favour of a third party.

BETA reserves the right to delete accounts and all related data upon identification of illicit contents damaging to BETA image and/or its products or any third party, or in any case contents that are offensive, illegal, defamatory or pornographic, incite to violence and discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, religion or belief or sexual orientation.

BETA uses third parties for the processing of your personal data for  certain types of activities.

The third parties performing these operations, have been properly selected in particular with regard to their skills, experience and reliability, and provide full compliance with the applicable regulations on processing, including the security profile of data.
