The Internet is an incredible tool. It has the power to change the way we live, and we are starting to see this potential today. With a few clicks of the mouse, you can follow the news, search for facts, buy goods and services and communicate with others from all over the world. It is important to Patrizia Fabri to help our customers maintain their privacy when taking advantage of all that the Internet has to offer.
We believe that your business is nobody else’s business. Your privacy is important to you and to us. So we will protect the information you share with us. To protect your privacy, Patrizia Fabri follows several principles in accordance with worldwide practices for customer privacy and data protection.
- We will not sell or give your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address or any other information to anyone.
- We will use state-of-the-art security measures to protect your information from unauthorised users.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you create a registration ID on the site or when you download free software, enter a contest, order email newsletters, or enter a premium site with limited access. We use your personal information for four main purposes:
- To make the site easier to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- To help you find software, services or information quickly.
- To help us create the most relevant content for you.
- To alert you to product updates, special offers, updated information and other new services from Patrizia Fabri.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of patriziafabrihats.com. But you will not be able to access areas that require registration.
If you do choose to register, you will be able to select the type of information you want to receive from us by signing up for various services, such as our electronic newsletters. If you do not want us to communicate other offers about Patrizia Fabri products, programmes, events or services to you by e-mail, post or telephone, you can select the option indicating that you do not wish to receive marketing messages from Patrizia Fabri.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and up to date. You can review and update this information at any time at the Visitors’ Centre. There, you can:
- View and change the personal information you have already given us.
- Tell us if you want us to send you marketing information, or if you want third parties to send you their offers by post.
- Sign up for our electronic newsletter about our services and products.
- Register. Once you have registered, you will not need to do so again. Wherever you go on patriziafabrihats.com your information stays with you.
Patrizia Fabri has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.
We ensure that your e-commerce transactions are 100% secure and protected. When you place orders or access your personal account information, you are using SSL software, which encrypts your personal information before it is sent over the Internet. SSL is one of the most secure encryption technologies available.
In addition, your transactions are guaranteed by the Fair Credit Billing Act. This Act states that your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 in fraudulent credit card charges. If your bank holds you liable for $50.00 or less, we will cover your liability as long as the unauthorized and fraudulent use of your credit card was through no fault of your own and for purchases made by us on our secure server. In the event of unauthorised use of your credit card, you must inform your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
Patrizia Fabri strictly protects the security of your personal information and honours your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under the conditions explained above. Within the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in Italy or any other country in which Patrizia Fabri, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
You too have an important role to play in protecting your information. No one can see or change your personal information without knowing your username and password, so don’t share it with others.
NOTICE TO PARENTS
Parents or guardians: we want to help you protect your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about the safe and responsible use of their personal information when using the Internet.
ELECTRONIC PRODUCT REGISTRATION
When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to electronically register your purchase. When you do, we combine your registration information with any information you have already left with us (we call this information your personal profile). If you have not previously registered with us, we create a personal profile for you from your product registration information. If you ever want to review or update that information, you can visit the Profile Centre, click on Update Profile and edit any personal information in your profile. If you have not yet created a registration ID, we will ask you to do so. This ensures that only you can access your information.
As mentioned above, each registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign you a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a tiny piece of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to smooth travel through patriziafabrihats.com allowing you to download free software, order free newsletters and visit premium sites without having to fill out registration forms with the information you have already provided. Even if you change computers, you won’t have to register again – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
What we do with the information you share
When you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service, and announcements about new and exciting services we offer. When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number and billing address. We only use this information to bill you for products ordered at that time. For your convenience, we save your billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we do not use this information again without your permission.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, shipping and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending mail, and processing event registration. We will only provide these companies with the information they need to provide the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Patrizia Fabri will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Patrizia Fabri or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Patrizia Fabri and its family of Websites; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Patrizia Fabri, its Websites, or the public.
