Intent and purpose of data use
This policy defines the criteria and procedures used for the processing of personal data provided at the time of registration to Dontshare and content published on Dontshare by registered Users. The policy also relates to public Users, that is, those who visit the website www.dontshare.it without registering.
By processing of personal data under Art. 4. paragraph a) of Legislative Decree 196/2003, we mean any operation or set of operations concerning the collection, recording, organisation, storage, consultation, processing, selection, extraction, editing, comparison, use, blocking, communication, dissemination, erasure and destruction of personal data.
In this section, Dontshare therefore proposes to illustrate the ways in which they collect and use the information provided by the User when registering and creating a profile on Dontshare, as well as any other information that Dontshare acquires through the use of the service by all Users, both registered and public (public Users meaning those who have not yet registered their profile and who therefore cannot use the functions of the Platform).
The information provided by the User, necessary for the registration of a profile on Dontshare may be used by Dontshare to interact with the User, e.g. to allow the User to receive notifications by e-mail about the Dontshare service.
All Users are encouraged to carefully read the Policy set forth below. In order to complete registration to Dontshare and use the services offered to its subscribers, the User is required to give their consent to the processing of personal data, pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 196/2003.
Consent is given by the User by accessing the website and creating an account. It is important that the User carefully read this document and the document relating to the Terms and Conditions of Use of the Dontshare Service.
After completion of the registration procedure for Dontshare, and once the procedures relating to the purchase of the service have been carried out, the User will be able to access the services provided for registered Users and start entering their content in their own dedicated area. The inclusion of such content is voluntary and is done at the sole discretion of the User according to their own personal choice and under their own responsibility. In this context, it must be duly taken into account that, by publishing content on the Platform, it is possible, even unknowingly, to provide and disclose further personal information.
Any publication of content, regardless of whether it is entered in the encrypted part of the Platform (and any personal data resulting or emerging from it, even indirectly) is in any case a free personal choice of the User, made totally voluntarily and for which Dontshare takes no responsibility whatsoever, such a choice being made under the personal and exclusive responsibility of the User.
Upon registration, Dontshare prompts the User for personal information and identification. Regarding payment for the service, Dontshare points out that the necessary data are not collected or processed by the Platform because the User will use secure payment systems that are external to the Platform. Therefore all data relating to the User’s credit card or debit card, IBAN code and any other data relating to payment (except personal data) are not collected by Dontshare.
