What personal information is collected?
Sela Group S.r.l. collects personal information when it is provided directly by the user. For example:
- Information on the user and the company he/she works for, when the user contacts us or is contacted to request a quote for one or more of the products/services we offer. In such cases the information may include the user's name and contact details, the name and details of the company he/she works for, information on their position in the company, email address, telephone numbers, shipping addresses and in general all the data necessary to issue an estimate and an order confirmation.
- Information on transactions, invoicing and deliveries if a product or a service we offer has been purchased.
- The marketing emails sent may automatically detect if the email was received or opened. We use this information to measure the effectiveness of our promotional activities, but also to personalise our promotional messages and to verify user satisfaction.
The purchase of a product from Sela Group S.r.l. involves the storage of email addresses and personal data in our database in order to track the user's purchase history and to keep track of the units sold for the purpose of verifying the product warranty. In this case it is not possible to delete data from our database, but if desired it is possible to stop receiving promotional emails.
By providing their personal data to Sela Group S.r.l. during a telephone contact, the users assume responsibility for the data provided and warrant to have the right to disclose or disseminate them, freeing the Data Controller from any liability to third parties.
How is personal information used?
The personal information collected may be used to:
•     Process the order received, send the order confirmation and/or communications regarding any order changes, delivery times, changes.
•     Process the order entered and/or provide the services purchased.

•     Send marketing or promotional messages about our products/services.
•     Investigate fraud and, where necessary, to protect ourselves or third parties for security purposes.

The legal reasons for our processing of personal information, as part of the data protection law, are as follows:
• The processing of data is necessary to fulfil a contract with the user or take the necessary preliminary steps to fulfil a contract (for example, to create a quote based on the requests of the user, or in the event of a purchase order to process delivery, invoicing or credit collection documents).
• Because it is in the legitimate interest of Sela Group S.r.l. and of the user's company, when the user issues orders on behalf of the company.
• Because we have obtained the consent of the user, for example when we have been contacted to ask a question, when consent is given to receive our newsletter.

Finally, so that the user can be informed about the technical innovations related to accessories or updates of the product purchased.
If personal data are transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), as required by applicable law we will guarantee that privacy rights are adequately protected with appropriate protection measures. For more information about these protective measures, please contact us.
