With the entry into force of Legislative Decree 30 June 2003 no. 196, containing provisions for the protection of persons and other persons with regards to the processing of personal data, Shiny Srl, with headquarters in Milano, Via Larga 23/117, 20122 (MI) ITALY, in its capacity as "owner" of the processing is obliged to supply some information regarding the use of personal data.
This Decree governs the processing of personal data, that is, any operation or set of operations, carried out with or without the assistance of electronic means, regarding the collection, registration, organization, preservation, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, communication, circulation, cancellation, and destruction of data, even if not registered in a data bank.
The Legislative Decree of 30 June 2003 no. 196 stipulates that "the person concerned" or "the person from whom the personal data is collected" must be informed of the following.

Source of personal data
With regard to the personal data in the possession of Shiny Srl, they are collected directly from the person concerned, while browsing data for websites that use the ShinyStat service are processed through the operating code placed on the sites. All the data collected will obviously be processed confidentially and in compliance of the ruling normative. Shiny Srl undertakes to process the personal data legally and correctly; to collect and register them for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and to use them in other processing operations on terms which are compatible with such purposes.
Moreover, it undertakes to check that they are accurate, up-to-date, pertinent, complete and not beyond the purposes for which they are collected and then processed, and to keep them in a way allowing for the identification of the person concerned for a period of time no greater than necessary for the purposes for which they were collected and then processed.
We would like to inform you that Shiny Srl does not require the indication of data that the Legislative Decree of 30 June 2003 no. 196 deems "sensitive".
Article 4, paragraph 1 letter d) of the Legislative Decree of 30 June 2003 no. 196 defines as "sensitive" the personal data that might be used to disclose the racial and ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or other types of convictions, political opinion, party membership, unions, associations and organizations of philosophical, political or trade union nature, as well as personal data that might disclose the state of health and sexual lifestyle.
The data may be processed only with the written consent of the person concerned and subject to the Guarantor's prior authorization, in observance of the provisions and limitations established by the Legislative Decree of 30 June 2003 no. 196, as well as by law and regulations.

Purposes of the processing for which the data are intended
1.The personal data of the person concerned will be processed within the scope of the normal activity by Shiny Srl and the processing will be carried out in compliance of the law and/or deriving from the contract to which the concerned person is a party (in order to be able to provide the user with the ShinyStat service, or to include the user's Site or Webpage on the search engine "ShinyStat's Top Sites", "ShinyStat's users" and other services provided by Shiny Srl, for example: Search engine ShinySeek).
2.The processing of personal data of the person concerned will also be applied when sending commercial communications regarding the Shiny's services.
The contribution of the personal data necessary for these purposes is optional, however the refusal to supply the data -given the specific need of the data requested for the purpose intended-, might result in Shiny Srl not fulfilling the letter of the law and/or provisions of the contract of which the person concerned is party (as far as point 1) and make it impossible for Shiny Srl to send commercial communications regarding Shiny's services (referred to in point 2).

Forms of data processing
In relation to the stated purposes, the processing of the personal data is carried out using manual, computer-based and telematic tools, with logic that is strictly correlated to the purposes intended, and in any case, in such a way as to guarantee the safety and confidentiality of the data.
In any case, the protection of the personal data is guaranteed by Shiny Srl.

Category of persons to whom data may be communicated
In order to carry out its activities, Shiny Srl shall communicate the personal data of the persons concerned only and exclusively to recipients of the communications strictly connected for purposes referred to at point 1) and to persons to whom the communication is obligatory by law.
Persons that belong to categories to whom the data may be communicated shall use the data in the capacity of "owners" pursuant to the law, in full autonomy, being outside the original processing carried out by Shiny Srl.
