a. MailChimp – G&G Italia use MailChimp as a provider of newsletters and as a provider in connection with inquiries via the contact and catalogue forms. We only combine pseudonymized data with personal information from your CRM profile if you have sent us an enquiry via our contact form, subscribed to a newsletter, or given us your consent to do so. To publish social media contributions and analyse reach and interactions with them, we use goal tracking technologies from MailChimp. This may include cookies. MailChimp may collect information for us about whether one of our posts in social media has been shared, liked, commented, clicked or mentioned and whether you are a user who has interacted with our posts in social media. We do so in order to address you in the best possible way and provide you with a service in line and relevant with your interests. For further information on data processing by MailChimp, please visit the MailChimp website (https://mailchimp.com/legal/).
For online marketing activities, G&G Italia also use MailChimp as an integrated software solution which covers various aspects, including:
The contact forms allow you, as a visitor to our website, to learn more about G&G Italia, download content, and provide G&G Italia with your contact information and other demographic information. G&G Italia uses this information to contact you. Before G&G Italia processes your data for the purposes set out in this section, G&G Italia will obtain your consent to process your data using MailChimp. You can withdraw this consent at any time for the future in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR.
G&G Italia measures the performance of email content that G&G Italia sends to you via MailChimp in order to identify your reading habits based on email opening, opening times, and links clicked, so that we can create and send you interest-based and relevant content. Your consent to data processing includes performance measurement. Unfortunately, a separate withdrawal of the performance measurement is not possible, in which case you must withdraw the consent in its entirety.
G&G Italia uses MailChimp to optimise advertising and customer targeting. Only if you have given G&G Italia consent to do so, G&G Italia can also combine the pseudonymous data with personal data from your CRM profile in order to address you optimally and provide you with interest-based information.
Your data will be passed on to MailChimp, a US company. MailChimp also uses other sub-processors in the USA. The consent you have given also refers to data transfers to the USA. The USA does not offer a level of data protection comparable to the European Union. However, MailChimp. is contractually obligated with the EU standard contractual clauses to ensure data protection-compliant processing and your data is stored by MailChimp in European data centres.
For more information on data processing by MailChimp, please visit HubSpot’s website (https://mailchimp.com/en-gb/help/mailchimp-european-data-transfers/).
Joint Controllership – Facebook, provides us with stats and insights to help us understand how our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/gandgitalia/) is being used (“Page Insights”). In this case, Facebook and we are jointly responsible for the data processing (“Joint Controllers”).
Legal basis, purpose, categories of data – The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6.1 (f) GDPR. We use the information you provide to us via your Facebook profile or by visiting our Facebook page via your browser to provide the functionalities of our Facebook page. This may include checking the reach of our posts, defining our audience more precisely, tailoring advertisements to our audience, and tailoring our Facebook page to the actual interests of our visitors.

We process this data in our legitimate interest to maintain the functionality of our Facebook page, to verify our reach, and to design and display our Facebook page according to your interests.
Further Information on the Joint Controllership with Facebook – In order to transparently and explicitly define the responsibilities for compliance with the obligations under the GDPR between us and Facebook, Facebook is primarily responsible for the data processing when visiting our Facebook page.

a. Legal Basis. Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal business contact information will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you (for example, when providing the Products and Services), or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process personal information about you or may need to process personal information in order to exercise, establish, or defend legal claims. Specifically, we process your personal information, such as contact data or correspondence, to the extent that this is necessary to:
The same applies if you are an employee of an interested party, supplier, service provider or other business partner and we receive your personal data in this context; the legal basis in this case is our legitimate interest in establishing or carrying out the business relationship with your employer (Article 6.1(f) GDPR).
b. Contact Form. If you contact us via the contact form, we will save your details (in particular name and title, your contact details, your company, the country and your message) and process them in order to process your enquiry. For this purpose, we use the provider WordPress as a processor, as further discussed below and G&G Italia uses MailChimp as a processor for subpages of this Website with competences of G&G Italia. Depending on your region and your requirements, we will forward your enquiry to the appropriate distributor of G&G Italia. The legal basis for this data processing is – depending on the subject of your enquiry – the processing for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Article 6.1 (b) GDPR) or our legitimate interest in providing a contact form for general enquiries or in providing information material (Article 6.1 (f) GDPR) or your consent (Article 6.1 (a) GDPR).
c. CRM System. Your details are also stored in a Customer Relation Management System (“CRM System”). The same applies if you request information or material from us. If you give us your telephone number, we may contact you by phone to discuss your project and put you in touch with the appropriate contact person. In connection with enquiries and the data collected in CRM, the distributors of G&G Italia act as “joint controllers” within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR, as they jointly decide on the means and purposes of processing personal data. Entry and access to your personal data depends on your region and your enquiry. For further information on these contractual terms, please contact our data protection officer, as noted below. You can assert your rights with regard to the processing of the personal data collected at G&G Italia.
d. Newsletter. If you register for our newsletter, we will process your email address and send you a confirmation email with a confirmation link that you must click on to subscribe to our newsletter. We will also add you to our mailing list in order to send you email advertising for our own similar goods or services if you purchase a good or service from us and you have not previously objected to this processing of your e-mail address. You can cancel the newsletter at any time and object to the e-mail advertising at any time. You will find a possibility to unsubscribe in every newsletter and every other advertising email that we send you. G&G Italia uses MailChimp as a processor for newsletter sending in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. G&G Italia additionally uses MailChimp as a processor for newsletter sending in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Your personal data is stored in Europe. However, we cannot fully exclude data transfers to MailChimp Inc. based in the USA, as further noted below. The USA (and other non-EEA countries) do not offer a level of data protection comparable to that of the European Union and, in particular, access by state authorities cannot be excluded in individual cases. MailChimp, however, are contractually bound by the EU standard contractual clauses to process data in conformity with data protection regulations. By registering for the newsletter, you also agree to possible data transfers to the USA to MailChimp. If you have given us your consent to do so, we will forward your email address and any other contact data to G&G Italia so that they can send you newsletters and information.
e. Newsletter Performance Measurement. The newsletters contain a so-called. “web-beacon”, which means a pixel-sized file that is retrieved when the newsletter is opened, either from the server of the G&G Italia or from the server of the service provider MailChimp. In the course of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval may be collected. We receive a statistical report from MailChimp about whether recipients open the newsletters, when they open it and which links they click. This processing serves us to recognize the reading habits of the newsletter recipients and to adapt the content to them or to send different content according to their interests. Your consent to receive the newsletter also covers the consent to performance measurement. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. For this purpose you can use the unsubscribe link in each newsletter or contact us. A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible; in this case, you must revoke the consent to the newsletter in its entirety.
f. Declare Objection. You can declare your objection directly to these companies. You will find a possibility to declare your objection or revocation in every email. You can also declare your withdrawal to G&G Italia. We will then forward it to the responsible company.
g. Email. If you agree to be informed by email about the latest products and services of G&G Italia, the companies will send you this information by email. Your details will be stored in a shared distribution list for this purpose. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, you can use the unsubscribe link in each newsletter or contact us.
You can communicate with us by email at any time. Please be advised that we use an Email Gateway of an external provider of security technologies to defend against SPAM email, other threatening email, threatening email attachments and URLs. In doing so, this external provider may process your first and last name, e-mail address and IP address. The legal basis is our legitimate interest in preventing unauthorised access to communications networks, the spread of malicious code and damage to computers and electronic communications systems (Article 6.1(f) GDPR in conjunction with Recital 49).
Processing described under Sections 2., 4. and 5. may lead to data transfers to third countries outside the EEA, especially to the USA. Please note that in the event of a data transfer to third countries outside the EEA, Chapter V of the GDPR requires that the recipients have an adequate level of data protection. Following the ECJ ruling of July 16, 2020 in case C-311/18 – Data Protection Commissioner v. Facebook Ireland Ltd and Maximillian Schrems (“Schrems II”), this is doubtful for the US due to government surveillance programs. However, our US providers are contractually bound by the EU standard contractual clauses to process data in conformity with data protection regulations. Should you have any questions in this regard, please contact our data protection officer (see Section 14).
We delete your personal information as soon as it is no longer needed for the purposes for which the personal information was collected, as long as no legal storage obligations stand in the way.
G&G Italia has taken the necessary technical and organisational measures to protect the personal data you provide from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our employees and all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with data protection laws and to treat personal data confidentiality. Our employees are trained accordingly. To protect the personal data of our users, we use a secure online transmission procedure, the so-called “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) transmission. You can recognize this by the fact that an “s” (“https://”) or a green, closed lock symbol is added to the address component. By clicking on the icon, you will receive information about the SSL certificate used. The display of the symbol depends on the browser version you are using. SSL encryption guarantees the encrypted and complete transmission of your data. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security risks. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The data protection laws grant residents a number of rights with regard to data concerning your person (rights of data subjects). These include the:
GDPR provides you the right of appeal to the competent data protection supervisory authority. However, if you have any questions or complaints regarding data protection at G&G Italia, we recommend that you first contact our DPO at [email protected]
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) applies to California residents from whom we collect personal information. California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 may permit users of our Services who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes which is outlined below:
This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time with the consequence that the processing of your personal data will become inadmissible for the future. However, this does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
a. We share your personal information for a business purpose to the following categories of third parties:
When we disclose your personal information to a service provider, we enter into a contract with the service provider that describes the business purpose for which your personal information is disclosed and restricts the service provider from using your personal information for any purpose except performing the contract. We may disclose the following categories of personal information for a business purpose:

We may deny your request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
e. To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing us at [email protected].
We utilise automated processing of personal data captured by consent to evaluate, analyse and predict common traits, characteristics, and behaviours. This allows us to effectively tailor marketing communication to specific types of customers in different ways.
We might analyse personal information and how users interact with G&G communications to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information that may be relevant to you. We may also use additional information about you when it is available externally to help us do this effectively – for example from public Social Media accounts.
