This document was written by the owner of the Site, Paola Stella, with registered office Ludwig-Thoma-Weg 18, 83224 Grassau, Germany, USt-IdNr: DE276585264, and, via the same, intend to supply all useful information pursuant to the processing of the personal data of those visiting the Site.
For managing, completion and executing the commercial transactions,

The Terms of Service of Cartloom are explained here: https://cartloom.com/tos/

THE POLICY
All Data subjects are entitled to the protection of their Personal Data. Paola Stella respects the rights of users to be informed on the collection and subsequent processing operations concerning their Personal Data. The Joint Data Controllers undertake to respect a strictly necessary principle when processing data that can identify the user, even indirectly. For this reason, the Site has been configured so that the use of personal data is kept to the minimum necessary and exclude the processing of personal data when the purpose of the specific activity can be achieved using anonymous data or other means, identifying the person only when needed or at the request of the authorities and police forces. This Privacy Policy will provide all useful information to understand how we collect and use the information that identifies users on the Site .

WHO PROCESSES YOUR PERSONAL DATA, HOW AND FOR WHAT PURPOSES
Paola Stella and Cartloom are in charge of processing the personal data of Site users, exclusively as regards the managing, completion and executing of the commercial transactions involving the purchase of products via the same Site.
In particular, as part of the process when purchasing products on the Site, Paola Stella collects Personal Data (e.g. name and surname, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card and bank details, telephone number) via the product order form available on the Site.
Personal Data are mainly processed in electronic format and in certain cases also in paper format, such as for instance, when the processing of personal data is necessary to prevent fraud on the Site.
Personal Data shall be retained in the form that allows users to be identified for the time strictly necessary for the purpose for which the data were collected and subsequently processed and, in any case within the limits foreseen by the laws in force. To ensure that Personal Data is always accurate and updated, pertinent and complete, Users are asked to kindly notify us of any changes to the same sending us an e-mail to: p.stella@ithacagallery.it.
Further to what already provided for above, the personal data of Users shall not be disclosed to third parties for purposes not permitted by law or without their express consent.
Personal data may be made available to third parties, such as Paypal and Stripe, for ancillary purposes related to the provision of services required by the user (for example, for purchase related transactions). For any information about Paypal and Stripe’s
terms of Service and Privacy Statement, please visit the following webpages:
PayPal:: https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/legalhub-full?locale.x=en_GB
Stripe: https://stripe.com/gb/legal


User personal data can be disclosed to Police forces or Judicial authorities, for instance pursuant to Site anti-fraud services, in accordance with the laws in force and whenever requested. Personal data will not be transferred abroad to Countries other than those belonging to the European Union, which do not guarantee a sufficient level of privacy protection.
There may be cases where Paola Stella processes third-party personal data communicated directly by the Website users, e.g. when the user intends to tell a friend about a service or product on sale at the Site, or when the user purchases a product to be sent to a friend or when the subject paying for the purchase is different to the subject to whom it will be delivered.
In the above cases Paola Stella, to the extent required by law, shall fulfill its disclosure obligations to the indicated user and, where necessary, request relative consent, upon registration of the relevant data in its Personal Data archives, or the next useful contact.

3. DENYING CONFERRAL OF PERSONAL DATA AND RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES
Conferral of Personal Data to Paola Stella and Cartloom, in particular, personal data, email address, mailing address, credit card/debit card and bank details and phone number, is required in order to fulfill the aforementioned purposes.
Some of the aforementioned data may be indispensable so as to fulfill the obligations imposed by the law or other regulations, or to provide other services you may have requested as provided on the Site.
Refusal to disclose certain essential Personal Data, identified on the Site by an asterisk (*), may make it impossible to complete all purchase contract phases, and/or fulfill all obligations required by the laws and regulations in force. Failure to disclose certain Data can therefore, according to individual circumstances, constitute a legitimate and justified reason preventing the execution of the purchase contract on the Site or the supply of services via the same.
On the other hand, conferral to Paola Stella or Cartloom of additional Personal Data, other than those which are compulsory, is optional and has no impact on the purchase of products on the Site.

TO WHOM PERSONAL DATA IS DISCLOSED
Personal Data may be disclosed and made available to third party companies that provide specific services on behalf of Paola Stella, who process data independently for the sole purpose of executing the purchase contract for products on the Site (such as, for instance, Stripe, for the execution of remote electronic payment services, via credit card/debit card) and only when such a purpose is not inconsistent with the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected and subsequently processed and, in any case, in full compliance with the laws in force.
No Personal Data shall be disclosed, assigned or otherwise transferred to third parties without informing users and obtaining their consent in advance, when required by law.

HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL DATA ON THE SITE
Paola Stella and Cartloom collect Personal Data and other information during the online registration process or when sending order forms to purchase products on the Site so as to execute e-commerce transactions.

SECURITY MEASURES
Paola Stella has taken all suitable security measures to minimise the risk of destruction or loss, even accidental, of such Data, further to unauthorised access or processing that is not authorised or does not comply with the scope and purpose of collection indicated in this Privacy Policy.
However, as it is impossible to guarantee that such measures for the security of the Site and the transmission of data and information on the same Site limit or exclude any risk of unauthorised access or dissemination of data, we recommend users check that they have an updated antivirus protection system installed on their computer, which protect incoming and outgoing data, and that their Internet provider uses firewalls and anti-spamming filters where suitable for the security of data transmission on the web.

- certification to the effect that the operations indicated above have been notified, as also related to their contents, to the entities to whom or which the data were communicated or disseminated, unless this requirement proves impossible or involves a manifestly disproportionate effort compared to the right that is to be protected.
Users are also entitled to oppose, totally or partially:
-  on legitimate grounds, to the processing of personal data concerning them, even though they are relevant to the purpose of the collection;
- to the processing of Personal Data concerning them, where it is carried out for the purpose of sending advertising materials or direct selling or else for the performance of market or commercial communication surveys.
