1. Personal Data, subjects of personal data and categories of personal data

1.1. What is personal data?
Personal data is all information of any nature, collected by any means, relating to a natural, identified or identifiable person. The set of information that can lead to the identification of a particular person is considered identifiable, namely by reference to an identifier (such as an identification number or location data).

1.2. From whom do we collect personal data?
In view of ARABESCO SIDERAL’s attributions, most of the data of legal persons (companies and associations) are processed. However, in order to carry out its duties, data from the following types of natural persons may be collected and processed (non-exhaustive list):

 • Customers and their employees;

• Visitors of ARABESCO SIDERAL’s website.  

1.3. What personal data do we process and how do we collect it?
ARABESCO SIDERAL only collects data that are adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

The collection of your data can be done orally, in writing (namely through forms and contracts), as well as through the website. As a general rule, we collect your data directly, and personal data may also be collected through public sources (such as internet sites and official public lists), as well as incentive management entities.

For different purposes, we may collect the following types of personal data:
• identification data (such as name, place of birth, citizen's card or date of birth);
• contact details (such as mobile phone, address or e-mail);
• banking, financial and transaction details (such as IBAN or tax identification number);

As a rule, ARABESCO SIDERAL does not collect special data, such as health data or data referring to administrative offenses or criminal offenses.


2. Fundamentals and Purposes of the Processing of Personal Data

2. 1. Why and on what basis do we use your personal data?
All data collected and processed by ARABESCO SIDERAL are based on one of the following legal conditions.
•  Consent : When the collection is preceded by your express, specific and informed consent, through written support or via the web.
•  Execution of a contract or pre-contractual steps : when the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or for pre-contractual steps.

 •  Compliance with legal obligations: when the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation. This includes, for example, the communication of data with public (national and community), fiscal or judicial bodies. 

 •  Legitimate interest: when processing proves to be necessary for the pursuit of the legitimate interests of the entity responsible for the treatment or of third parties, without prejudice to the rights and freedoms of its customers and/or users.

3. Personal data retention period

ARABESCO SIDERAL processes and keeps your data only for the period that is necessary for the pursuit or completion of the purposes of the treatment for which they are intended, in respect of the maximum periods necessary to comply with contractual, legal or regulatory obligations.
As a general rule, and when there is a contract that legitimizes the processing of your data, ARABESCO SIDERAL will keep such data as long as such contractual relationship is maintained. Other circumstances exist, such as compliance with legal or regulatory obligations (for example, for the purpose of complying with tax obligations, personal data relating to invoicing must be kept for a maximum period of ten years from the date of the act), as well as the pending legal proceedings, which may legitimize your data to be kept for a longer period of time.
At the end of the storage period, ARABESCO SIDERAL will proceed with the deletion of said data.
