A. to respond to information and contact requests concerning the Services offered by the Group Companies;
The conferral of your personal data for purpose A is essential to be able to follow up your requests for information and does not need your prior consent. Your refusal to provide the foregoing data, in fact, although legitimate, would compromise the ability of the Companies of the Group to answer your requests. The processing of your data for purpose A is instrumental to the legitimate interest of the Controller to answer your requests for contact and information.

In particular, to follow up the application for a position by you, i.e. for the recruitment and selection of staff for the companies of the Group; for planning activities, for internal control services by means of processing, including electronic processing, of professional profiles, as well as for consultation and comparison of the same.
The conferral of your personal data for purpose B is optional, however a failure to confer such data means that the Group would not be able to make the checks envisaged by current internal procedures and, as a result, would make it impossible to perform the activities necessary to select staff and subsequently recruit the Applicant.
The conditions of lawfulness of the processing of your Personal data for the purposes pursuant to letter B are the implementation of the pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the data subject, the legitimate interest of the Controller for organisational and productive needs, as well as, in the case of special categories of personal data pursuant to letter c), the need to discharge obligations to exercise specific rights of the Controller and Data Subject in matters of labour law.
