1. INFORMATION We COLLECT

When subscribing to our newsletter (sent through MailChimp) information is collected. The newsletter signup requires you to give your first name, last name, and email address. Your physical mailing address, birthday, and other information is optional.

Information is also collected through Squarespace Analytics. Squarespace Analytics allows us insight into how Ciaofabello.com is performing. With Analytics, we can see visitors and their behavior through visual reports on statistics like page views, conversion, sales, referrers, and popular content. For more information about Squarespace Analytics, visit their overview here.


2. WHY We NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW We USE IT

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

  • When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for our mailing list;

  • If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim;

  • And as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services.

3. INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

Information about our readers and viewers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

  • Business transfer: If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

  • Compliance with laws: We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to:

(a) Respond to legal process or to government requests;

(b) Enforce our agreements, terms and policies;

(c) Prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or

(d) Protect the rights, property, and safety of our readers, viewers, or others.


4. DATA RETENTION

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as described in our Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.


5. TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EU

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.


6. YOUR RIGHTS

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:

  • Access: You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.

  • Change, restrict, delete: You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we am required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.

  • Object: You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

  • Complain: If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
