We collect and process the personal data provided by visitors when registering at the entrance to the plant, such as: 

  • personal data and contact details;
  • company to which they belong;
  • entry and exit times.

In addition, we would like to inform you that, where appropriately signposted prior to the relevant radius of action using specific signs, video surveillance systems are in operation and we will therefore process the visualised and/or recorded images of persons entering the premises and falling within the range of the cameras.

How are the data collected?
The Personal Data are provided directly by the visitor upon entering the establishment. The provision of data is optional, but failure to provide such data for the above-mentioned purposes means that access to the premises is not possible. 
As for the images recorded by the video surveillance systems, these will be collected as soon as the person concerned enters the video surveillance area, which can be recognised by heeding the appropriate signs.

What are the PURPOSES and LEGAL BASIS of the processing?
The processing of the personal data provided for registration at the entrance is carried out for the purposes of access control and protection of the company's assets, the security of the premises and the physical safety of the people who access them, in accordance with Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/2003. 81/2008 and to specific legal regulations. Such processing is carried out on the basis of a legal obligation (Article 6 paragraph 1 C of the GDPR) in the case of access to storage sites under surveillance, as defined by fire protection legislation.
The processing of video surveillance data is carried out on the basis of a legitimate interest of the Data Controller (Article 6 paragraph 1 F of the GDPR) for the purposes of protecting the company's assets, security and containment of criminal phenomena, as well as the safety of those involved in the loading and unloading of LPG tankers during such operations.

HOW LONG do we keep your personal data for?
The data provided for registration at the entrance will be stored for 24 hours after their collection.
The images detected and recorded by the company's video surveillance system are retained for a maximum period of 24 hours after their detection.
Data may be stored for a further period of time if this is necessary to comply with legal obligations, requests by authorities or to exercise and/or enforce a right.

The processing of data for the purposes set out above takes place both in automated form, on electronic or magnetic media, and in non-automated form, on paper. It should be noted that the Data Controller does not carry out fully automated decision-making processes.

TO WHOM will we disclose your personal data?
Your personal data may be disclosed to subjects belonging to companies of the Group and to subjects external to the company organisation in the capacity of Data Processors, such as suppliers of surveillance and security services and suppliers of technical services strictly related to the activity.
Your personal data may also be disclosed, upon request, to law enforcement agencies and public or judicial authorities for the fulfilment of legal obligations.

WHERE do we transfer your data to?
The data collected will not be transferred outside the European Economic Area.
