With regard to the treatment described in this notification, Santa Margherita S.p.A. operates as Data Controller with reference to the products and services marketed under its brands (Santa Margherita, Kettmeir and Torresella), as well as the products marketed by the following companies, which are part of the same business group (hereinafter “Group”): SM Tenimenti Pile e Lamole e Vistarenni e San Disdagio S.r.l. Società Agricola, Cà Maiol S.r.l. Società Agricola and Cantina Mesa S.r.l. Società Agricola  (hereinafter, taken together, “Products and Services”).

Purposes and legal basis for the treatment

Santa Margherita processes personal data for several purposes:

  1. To transmit commercial information, promotions, invitations to events, opinion polls, etc. concerning the Products and Services ("Marketing"), using the contact details of the Interested Party (telephone, mobile phone, e-mail): for this purpose, the user’s explicit consent is required;

  2. To analyze behaviors, habits and consumption patterns of the Interested Party, in order to meet specific needs and to improve its Products and Services, also by sending personalized commercial communications ("Profiling"): for this purpose, the user’s explicit consent is required, separately from that referred to in the previous point;

  3. To document the consent issued for Marketing and/or Profiling communications even after the revocation of the same: for this purpose, express consent is not required, because the treatment is necessary for the pursuit of the legitimate interest of Santa Margherita, so they can easily manage any requests in this area (by the Interested Party and the competent Authorities) and protect the reputation of the Group as a whole.


For the purposes indicated in point 2), Santa Margherita, by means of automated decision-making processes, intends to analyze the Interested Party’s interaction with the communications received for Marketing purposes (e.g. webpages opened, clicks, etc.) and his/her behaviors in relation to the experiences with the Group’s companies (e.g. visits, purchases, etc.), in order to activate a communication process based on such analyses.

Period of data retention

Santa Margherita intends to treat the data according to the following time frame:

  • For the purposes indicated in point 1), the data will be treated for 24 months following its registration, although the Interested Party may revoke his/her consent at any time, and the revocation may also refer to a single contact modality;

  • For the purposes referred to in point 2), the data will be treated for 12 months following its registration, with the understanding that the Interested Party may revoke his/her consent at any time;

  • For the purposes referred to in point 3), the data will be treated for 6 months following the revocation of the last consent given.

Nature of the provision of data and consequences in case of refusal

The provision of data is optional: failing this, Santa Margherita will not transmit communications for Marketing purposes and/or will not carry out Profiling activities; in case of non-consent to Profiling, the Interested Party may still receive Marketing communications, which will therefore have a less personalized character: detailed information on this point is provided with the form.
