          10.1 A summary of our privacy policy

          The principles on which our privacy policy is based are listed below:

              1. Process data exclusively for the purposes and according to the methods illustrated in the notice presented to users at the time of its collection;
              2. Use data for other purposes, with respect to those specified at the time of collection, only where the user has expressed its express consent to such use;
              3. Make data available to third party companies only for purposes that are strictly necessary to provide the requested service(s) and only where monitored by a data supervisor; not communicate, cede or transfer data to third parties for purposes exclusive to the third party unless the users have received prior warning and have granted their consent;
              4. Answer all requests for cancellation, variation and integration of personal data, opposition to data processing for the purpose of sending commercial information and advertising;
              1. Ensure that data processing is conducted fairly and legally, protecting user privacy and implementing appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk (i.e. confidentiality, integrity, availability, ability to restore the availability).

          Personal data processing is conducted primarily by means of information systems and electronic devices by OPUNTIA and other parties who, selected with care for their reliability and competence, conduct operations that are essential in order to achieve the purposes strictly related to the use of the web site, its services provisions sales of Products and purchases via the web site (see below, ‘Parties who may process your personal data’).

          The specific purposes for which your personal data is processed are summarized each time you communicate your personal data. In general, data is processed in order to provide the following services available to those who visit our site:

              1. Registration on the site, to enjoy the services we offer;
              2. Subscription to additional specific services, such as our OPUNTIA newsletter, and other similar information bulletins about our activities.

          For this reason we have set up the site in such a way as to reduce use of your personal data to the absolute minimum: therefore, your personal data is not processed when the purpose of the specific activity can be achieved by using anonymous data (such as market surveys intended to improve services) or by means of other methods that make it possible to identify the person involved only if strictly necessary or at the request of authorities or the police (such as site traffic data, the time you spend visiting our site or your IP address).

          Your personal data will be communicated to third parties only with your express consent, except for the cases when such communication is obligatory by law or is required for purposes envisaged by the law, for which the person’s consent is not required; in these cases the personal data may be made available to third parties who will process the data autonomously and exclusively for such purposes.

          Also, OPUNTIA can communicate your personal data to third parties for the purposes of its scope, since you have been notified relevantly and you have given your written consent for this by reading, understanding and accepting the present terms and conditions, as well as in cases of data processing for which the law established that your consent is not required: for example, we wish to inform you that OPUNTIA can process your personal data without your consent if this is necessary to comply with the provisions of the law or whenever this is necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations it may have entered into with you (for example, when you have bought Products or have requested specific services through our web site).
          .

          It could happen that OPUNTIA may find itself processing personal data of third parties, communicated directly to OPUNTIA by its own users, such as when the person who pays for a Product/good is different from the addressee.
          In these circumstances, it is the user’s responsibility to obtain consent from this person before communicating his/her personal data to OPUNTIA and to inform him/her about this Privacy Policy, because the user will be the sole person responsible for communication of information and data about third parties without them having granted their consent or in the event that such data be used in an illicit or improper way. In any case, any third person whose personal data are being processed by OPUNTIA under such conditions has the same rights as described under term 10.7.

           OPUNTIA reserves the right to eliminate accounts and all related data if illicit contents is discovered that is harmful to the image of OPUNTIA and/or its Products/goods or those of third parties or, in any case, may be considered offensive, may be seen to promote illegal or libellous activities, includes pornographic material, incite to violence, or promote discrimination based on race, gender, religion or sexual preferences.

          10.2 Data controller


          The data controller of the information collected through this website is OPUNTIA and its subcontractors. OPUNTIA independently establishes the purposes and methods of data processing and the implementation of security procedures to guarantee the privacy, integrity and availability of such data.

          10.3 Optional or compulsory communication of personal data

          Communicating your personal data to OPUNTIA when requested in any of the many instances where personal data is collected through the site may be essential in order to achieve the purposes set down by the communication itself, or not prejudicial in this regard.

          The compulsory or optional nature of the data provision is specified each time – with reference to the specific data requested – at the point of input for each data collection, by marking compulsory information with an asterisk (*).

          If you refuse to communicate the information marked as compulsory to OPUNTIA, it will be impossible to achieve the main purpose of the specific data collection or provide any of all the services available on www.opuntialuxuryoils.com.
          Communicating additional data to OPUNTIA, other than those marked as compulsory is optional and will not produce any consequences with regard to the main purposes of the collection (such as, par example, using the web site and its services).

          10.4 Data supervisors

          The data supervisors charged with processing your personal data are OPUNTIA employees that process the data required to manage and maintain the OPUNTIA servers and develop the OPUNTIA applications.

          However, OPUNTIA cannot guarantee its users that the security measures adopted to protect the site, data transmission and information on the site, limit or exclude any risk whatsoever of unauthorised access or dispersion of data via user devices: we advise you to ensure that your computer is equipped with appropriate software to protect data transmission on the network, both incoming and outgoing (such as up to date antivirus systems) and that your Internet service provider has also adopted adequate security measures to protect network data transmission (such as a firewall and antispamming filters).
