Your Data will be processed to: assist you, verify your identity, allow you to view your purchase history, finalize your purchase order and to send you the products purchased on the Website in addition to providing you with any other Services you might request.
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of messages to the contact addresses listed on the Website, such as through the Contact page or by contacting BORDER-GARA, involves the acquisition of the Data necessary to respond to your requests, as well as any Personal Data that might be included in your communications.
The legal basis for processing this information is the execution of a sales contract in which you are a party or the execution of precontractual measures taken at your request. This is necessary to receive your order, process it correctly (including invoicing activities) and to deliver your products to you.
b) Soft Spam: Your data will be used, only in case you have previously bought items or services from the Website, to send you marketing, promotion and advertising emails related to similar products or services to those you have purchased. You can choose to not receive these communications at any time by following the instructions outlined in the “Rights of the Interested Party” section or by simply clicking the Unsubscribe link found at the bottom of all our emails.

If you have a personal account, we could send you email communications containing offers or promotions on products in your shopping cart that you haven’t purchased. Such activities could be carried out either automatically without the operator’s intervention via email, or through traditional communication methods such as via post or telephone. Should you subscribe to the newsletter by filling the dedicated form on the Website, you will receive promotional and commercial emails related to BORDER-GARA’s services and activities.
Processing your Data for these purposes is based on your free and explicit consent: you are not obliged to provide said consent and if provided, you are always free to revoke it at any moment with the only consequence being not receiving further marketing communications from BORDER-GARA. You can revoke your previously provided consent by following the instructions outlined in the “Rights of the Interested Party” section or by simply clicking on the Unsubscribe link found at the bottom of all our emails.
d) Profiling: Through certain types of cookies on the Website, the Controller could carry out profiling activities, provided you have given your consent to use profiling cookies or similar technologies. This includes, for example, analysing Website usage and the efficiency of the advertisements and promotions including those present on third party platforms. For further details regarding cookies and similar technologies, we invite to refer to the Cookie Policy and the list of cookies, including third party cookies, accessible via the cookie banner or the link in the Website’s footer. You can revoke consent related to cookies via the “Cookie Policy” link in the Website’s footer and by following the instructions outlined therein.
e) Legal Obligations: Your data may be processed to allow BORDER-GARA to fulfil its obligations under national, EU or international laws, regulations, or mandatory provisions issued by the competent authorities. The legal basis for this type of processing is the fulfilment of legal obligations by the Controller. The provision of Personal Data for these purposes is necessary to allow BORDER-GARA to fulfil the regulatory obligations to which it is subject.
f) Security: Your Data might be processed to prevent and/or identify any anomalies, fraudulent activities and/or abuses related to the usage of the Website or Services.

Your Personal Data could be shared with the following parties:
a) Personnel authorized for processing by the Data Controller, duly designated and who are committed to or have a legal obligation to confidentiality, such as BORDER-GARA employees.
b) Third parties designated as Data Processors, tasked with processing the Data on behalf of the Data Controller. This includes parties with whom it is necessary to interact for the provision of services such as hosting providers, email platform providers, third parties tasked with carrying out maintenance activities of network equipment and electronic communication networks.
c) Third parties with whom it is necessary to interact for the fulfilment of the Services available on the Website and who also act as independent data controllers, such as couriers and freight forwarders who deliver your purchased items.
d) Subjects, bodies, or authorities to whom it is mandatory to communicate your Data in order to comply with legal obligations or for security reasons.

Your Personal Data is not intended for publication or dissemination.

Some of your Personal Data might be shared with recipients in countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA). In such cases, the Controller ensures that the processing of your Personal Data is performed according to the applicable legislation. That in turn means that the transfers are done following adequate measures, such as adequacy decisions, models of Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission or other guarantees considered adequate.

5. Retention Times and Criteria

Personal Data processed for the “Provision of Services and the sale of products” will be retained for the time strictly necessary for the correct fulfilment of your requests and of the pre-contractual or contractual relationship in progress with you, barring necessary or legal obligations that impose a longer retention time.
Personal Data processed for “Soft Spam” or “Marketing” will be retained until you revoke your previously given consent or until you object to the processing.
Personal Data processed for “Legal Obligations” will be retained for the period foreseen by the specific legal obligations and the applicable legislation.
Personal Data processed for “Security” reasons will be retained for the time strictly necessary for those purposes, also considering the time necessary for court protection and/or the communication of such Data to the competent authorities.

6. Rights of the Interested Party

As an interested party, you have the right to obtain access to your Personal Data from BORDER-GARA, in the cases provided for, and to modify and delete it.
You also have the right to limit the processing of your Data and to object to its processing (Articles 15 and following of the Regulation).
You can also revoke your consent at any time to the processing of your Personal Data for “Marketing” purposes and you can object to their processing for “Soft Spam” purposes. The consent expressed for receiving promotional communications for Marketing purposes does not only cover communications sent via automated systems without the operator’s intervention (email, for example), but also extends to traditional communication methods such as via post or telephone. You could therefore revoke your consent to processing your information in a more granular and selective way; deciding for example to receive these communications solely via post and not through automated systems like email. You can also interrupt the receipt of promotional communications sent via email for purposes of Marketing and Soft Spam by using the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of all our emails.
You can object to the use of profiling cookies when using the Website, by following the instructions in the Cookie Policy.
If you have registered on the Website, you can change the Personal Data you provided BORDER-GARA at any time by accessing the reserved area of your account.
For any enquiries regarding the Personal Data you provided BORDER-GARA or to request their modification or deletion, you can fill this request form and send it, preferably to the email address, or to any of the Data Controller contacts indicated in the first paragraph of this Policy.
Interested parties who deem the processing of their Personal Data carried out on this website to be in violation of provisions of the Regulation, have the right to lodge a complaint with the German Data Protection Authority, as foreseen by Article 77 of the Regulation, or take the appropriate legal steps (Article 79 of the Regulation).

7. Updates and Changes

The Data Controller reserves the right to periodically change, supplement or change this policy in compliance with the applicable legislation or the measures adopted by Guarantor for the Protection of Personal Data (German Data Protection Authority).

1. Definitions, types, and application of the legislation

Cookies are small text files that are sent or stored on the user’s computer or mobile device by the website they visit, which are then sent back to those same sites on the next visit. Cookies are how a website remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as login details, chosen language, font size, other display setting, etc.) so that they do not have to be chosen again when the user returns to the website or browses from one page to another.
Cookies are used for computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information related to user activities when accessing a site. They can also contain a unique identification code which keeps track of user navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are technically necessary for the functioning of the website.
For further information regarding cookies and their general functions, the user could consult dedicated websites such as
Cookies can be either set directly by the website or web server that the user is visiting or created and stored by the website whose address has been typed and displayed in the URL window (referred to as "first party" cookies).
While browsing a website, the user can receive cookies on their device from websites or servers other than the one they are visiting (referred to as “third party” cookies). Third party cookies are stored when visiting a website and a third-party with respect to the operator of the visited site releases a cookie they own through it.
There are also various types of cookies which, depending on their characteristics and functions, can remain on the user's computer for different periods of time. These include session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed and persistent cookies, which remain on your device until a set deadline.
Based on the current applicable legislation in Italy, user consent is not always required for the use of cookies. Technical cookies, which are cookies who have the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over a communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service that has been explicitly requested by the user, do not require consent.

Among the technical cookies, which do not require consent for their usage, are:
• First-party analytical cookies used to collect information, in aggregate form, regarding the number of users and how they visit the website.

Inversely, profiling cookies, which create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the user’s overall online activity, require the user’s prior consent.
