Data Collection and Intended Use

1. active data (such as name, mail address, e-mail address, telephone/fax numbers, credit card details, password, etc.) when voluntarily submitted by visitors for registration, contests, on-line order placement, etc.; and 2. passive data (such as browser type, IP address, page reference, etc.)

From time to time, we may ask our site visitors to answer survey questions. Surveys generally deal with the site, our products or categories of products. We may ask for age or age ranges, gender, and other non-personally identifiable data. No personally identifiable data is requested and the data collected is not tied to any personally identifiable data that may have been previously provided. Data gathered from polls and surveys are only for internal use by the GVS group, but aggregate data may be shared with others.

The data controller collecting the personal data described herein is GVS S.p.A. The personal data submitted by you are used only for the express purposes stated at the location where you provide it, i.e., in order to receive press releases, management reports or other financial data or processing an application for employment. We will not use personally identifiable data for direct marketing or unsolicited follow-up unless you have given us your express permission for such use.

We will use your personally identifiable data only for business purposes within the GVS Group which may include its communication to our affiliates and subsidiaries. We do not share personally identifiable data collected at this site with third parties except for the limited instances set out below. The exceptions are:

- We may transfer your personal data to our partner agencies (service providers) who assist us in administering the site(s). They can only use the data for the purposes of maintaining our site. These partner agencies are bound by a contractual agreement to keep your data private and secure. - We may also disclose personal data if we are required to do so by law or if in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to any claims, or to protect the rights of the GVS Group, its customers and the public.

- In the event of an acquisition of all or part of GVS by another company, or in the event that GVS were to sell or dispose of all or a part of the GVS business, the acquirer would have access to the data maintained by that GVS business, which could include personal data, subject to applicable law.
