Privacy and Cookie Policy

Policy governing the processing of personal data of website users pursuant to Article 13 of Regulation EU

This document was prepared pursuant to Article 13 of Regulation EU 2016/679 (hereinafter the “Regulation”) to allow users to become acquainted with our privacy policy, to understand how their personal data are handled when they use our site (, hereinafter the “Site”) and, if appropriate, to provide their express and informed consent to the processing of their personal data. The information and data provided by the users or otherwise collected when they use the navigation services and services to access the Site restricted area (hereinafter the “Services”) will be processed in compliance with the Regulation provisions and confidentiality requirements guiding Woodco’s business.
In accordance with the Regulation provisions, data processing operations carried out by Woodco will comply with the principles of lawfulness, fairness, transparency, restriction of purposes and retention, data minimisation, accuracy, integrity and confidentiality, as well as the principle of accountability as under Article 5 of the Regulation.


Woodco soc. Coop., having its registered office in Via Antonio Detassis 17, 38121 Trento – Italy (hereinafter “Woodco” or “Controller”) is constantly committed to protecting the online privacy of its users. Before providing any personal data to the Controller, you are kindly requested to read this privacy carefully as it contains important information regarding the protection of personal data.
Any enquiries must be addressed to +39 0461 40511 or to or mailed to the Privacy Office of Woodco Soc. Coop. – Via Antonio Detassis 17 – 38121 Trento – Italy.


The personal data that are subject to processing may include identifiers such as name, ID number, information regarding location, an online ID or one or more distinguished features regarding the physical, physiological, psychic, financial, cultural or social identity that may identify the data subject or make him/her identifiable, depending on the type of services requested.
More specifically, the personal data processed when accessing the Site include:

a) Navigation data
The information systems and software procedures underlying the running of the Site will, during normal operations, collect some web surfing-related information, the transmission of which is considered as implied in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected for the purpose of being associated with identified data subjects. However, due to its nature it may, through associations with and processing of data held by third parties, allow the users or surfers to be identified. This type of data includes the IP addresses and domain names of the computers used by the users to access the website, addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of the resources requested, time of request, method used to submit the request to the web server, size of the file received in response, numerical code representing the status of the response provided by the web server (successful, error, etc.) and other metrics related to the user’s operating system and IT environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of gathering anonymous statistical data regarding the use of this Site and to check its proper running, to identify faults and/or abuses and are deleted immediately after processing. These data may be used to investigate and establish liability in the event of possible cybercrimes against the Site or third parties.
Specific notices are provided in the website sections regarding special services — which may also require registration in order to be accessed — where the personal data of the Site user may be requested.

b) Categories of personal data
When using the “Contacts” ( section of the Site, users may be requested to provide personal data falling within the special categories of Personal Data as under Article 9 of the Regulation, quoting verbatim “[…] data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.” We encourage our users not to disclose such data, unless this is strictly necessary. Indeed, we should like to point out that if Personal Data falling within special categories are provided without any specific consent to the processing of such data being given (in any such event, however, requests for information may still be submitted), then Woodco will not be held responsible in any way nor may any complaint be lodged against it, inasmuch as processing will, in this case, be allowed due to the fact that the relevant data will be considered as made manifestly public by the data subject, consistent with Article 9.1(e) of the Regulation. As mentioned earlier, however, we should like to underscore the importance of expressing your explicit consent to the processing of special categories of Personal Data if you decide to share such data.
Woodco may, in any event and for recruiting purposes, analyse the social professional profiles freely available on the Internet (e.g. through LinkedIn).

Your personal data will be processed for the following purposes:

3.1 To ensure and manage your subscription to and registration with the Site, Site navigation and the delivery of the services provided by the Controller, including the security management of the Site;
3.2 To comply with any obligations under applicable law provisions, regulations or community standards or meet requests submitted by the authorities;
3.3 To process statistics, without the possibility for the identity of the data subject to be tracked;
3.4 To review requests and reach out to the users who submit their requests through the “Contacts” section;
3.5 To send, directly, newsletters and communications for direct marketing purposes by email, sms, mms, push notices, fax, paper-based mail, in relation to the products sold by Woodco;
3.6 To perform profiling tasks by collecting and analysing information regarding choices and selections made by the users within the Site with a view to sending customised offers concerning other products and/or services.

Specific security measures have been adopted to prevent loss of data, illegal or inappropriate use and unauthorised access.


The legal basis of the processing of personal data for the purposes as under 3.1 above is stated under Article 6.1(b) of the Regulation, since processing is required to deliver the services or to respond to the data subject’s requests. On the other hand, the legal basis of the processing of personal data for the purposes as under 3.2 above is stated under Article 6.1(c) of the Regulation (“processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject”). While providing your personal data for these purposes is optional, your failure to do so may prevent the requested services from being activated.
Kindly note, however, that processing as under 3.3 above is not carried out based on personal data and, as such, it may be freely performed by the Controller.
The legal basis of the processing of personal data for the purposes as under 3.5 and 3.6 above is stated under Article 6.1.(a) of the Regulation, inasmuch as processing is based on consent. Consent is optional and may be withdrawn at any time without any consequences (except that you will no longer receive marketing communications and/or be subject to profiling). The consents provided previously may be withdrawn by following the instructions provided under section 8 of this Policy.
With regard to processing related to (i) the direct delivery of its advertising materials or (ii) direct sale or (iii) the conduct of its own market research or (iv) the delivery of commercial communications in relation to Controller’s products and services which are similar to those used by the user, Woodco may use the email addresses pursuant to, and to the extent as allowed by, Article 130(4) of the [Italian] Privacy Code (Legislative Decree No. 196/2003) and by measure dated 19 June 2008 issued by the Supervisory Authority for the protection of personal data, including when explicit consent has not been provided. The legal basis of the processing of personal data for these purposes is stated under Article 6(1)(f) of the Regulation. Data subjects have the right to object to such processing at any time, either from the outset or on the occasion of future communications. To this end, an easy and free of charge procedure will be in place, including by writing to the contacts provided under section 1 “DATA CONTROLLER” of this policy. They are also entitled to obtained immediate feedback confirming the interruption of such processing (Article 15 of the Regulation).


The personal data so collected may, for the purposes as under 3 of this privacy policy, be shared with:
5.1 individuals who typically act as data processors pursuant to Article 28 of the Regulation, i.e. individuals who co-operate with the Controller in the pursuit of the aforesaid purposes, including individuals entrusted with technical maintenance tasks (jointly, the “Recipients”); the list of external data processors may be obtained from the Controller by writing to the contacts as shown in section 1 “DATA CONTROLLER” of this privacy policy;
5.2 individuals, organisations or authorities to whom such data must be disclosed pursuant to law provisions or orders issued by the relevant authorities;
5.3 people authorised by the Controller — pursuant to Article 29 of the Regulation — to process personal data in order to carry out activities strictly related to the supply of services, such people having committed themselves to confidentiality or being at any rate bound by adequate confidentiality legal obligations.
The updated list of individuals who may process your personal data in their capacity as data processors may be obtained by sending a written request to the Controller to the contacts shown in section 1 “DATA CONTROLLER” of this privacy policy.



The Controller hereby informs you that Woodco does not transfer data to countries outside the European Economic Area.



The personal data processed for the purposes under section 3.1 above will be retained for such a period of time as may be strictly necessary to achieve these purposes. In any event, since processing pertains to the supply of services, the Controller will retain your personal data for the period of time required and permitted under Italian law provisions in order to protect its own interests (Section 2946 et seq. of the Civil Code).
Any personal data processed for the purposes as under section 3.2 above will be retained until required by the specific applicable law obligation or provisions.
More information about the period of retention of the data and the criteria used to establish such period may be obtained by sending a written request to the Controller using the contacts provided in section 1 “DATA CONTROLLER” of this privacy policy.
The foregoing will, however, be without prejudice to the Controller’s right to retain your personal data for the period of time required and permitted under Italian law provisions in order to protect its own interests (Section 2947 of the Civil Code).



Pursuant to Articles 15 et seq. of the Regulation, the data subject has the right to (i) obtain from Woodco, at any time, access to his/her own Personal Data, the rectification or erasure of such data, or (ii) object to their processing, request the restriction of processing in the cases as under Article 18 of the Regulation, and (iii) obtain the data concerning him/her in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format in the cases as listed under Article 20 of the Regulation.
Any such requests must be made in writing to the Controller using the contacts shown in the “Contacts” section of this privacy policy.
In any event, the data subject will — pursuant to Article 77 of the Regulation — always have the right to file a complaint with the Supervisory Authority (locally known as Garante per la Protezione dei Dati Personali) if he/she believes that the processing of his/her Personal Data is in breach of applicable law provisions.

The Controller reserves the right to change or simply update the contents of this privacy policy, in whole or in part, including as a result of amendments to the applicable regulations. The Controller thus encourages you to visit this section on a regular basis to become familiar with the latest and most up-to-date version of the privacy policy so that you may be constantly informed about the data collected and how Woodco uses them.
