IT systems and software procedures used to operate the Website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified interested parties, but by its nature it could allow to identify users, through processing and association with data held by third parties. This category of data may include the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by the users connecting to the Website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numeric code indicating the status of the response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment. These data could be used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site, to check its correct functioning, to prevent any illegal behavior (by blocking IP addresses) or to ascertain responsibility in the event of any IT crimes against the Site. In general data on web contacts are not stored for more than 30 days.
Data voluntarily provided
When utilizing some services of the Website, the user could send data of third parties. In these cases the user acts as an independent data controller, assuming all the obligations and responsibilities provided for by law: he is therefore required to: 1) guarantee (assuming the relative responsibilities) that the treatment is based on one of the legal bases provided by art. 6 of the GDPR; 2) relieve A&F in case of dispute or request for compensation of data processing damage by third parties whose data have been processed by the user using the functions of the Website in violation of data protection regulations. The data (name, address, contact details etc.) shared voluntarily, for example in a request sent by e-mail to the addresses indicated on the Website, they are processed only to reply to users’ requests. The legal basis of the treatment is Article 6 par. 1 let. b) of the GDPR as the treatments are necessary to provide services and / or respond to the user’s requests (execution of pre-contractual and / or contractual services). The user is obliged to communicate only the necessary data. The provision of data for these purposes is optional and failure to provide it makes it impossible to activate the services requested. If the user confers his data that fall under the “special categories of data” (art. 9 of the GDPR: data suitable to reveal the racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data , biometric data, data relating to health, sexual life or sexual orientation), must communicate such data only if strictly necessary. It should be noted that in case of disclosure of particular categories of data but in the absence of an explicit consent to process such data (which in any case obviously allows them to send a curriculum vitae), A&F cannot be held liable in any way, nor may receive any objection, since in this case the treatment will be allowed as having as object the data made manifestly public by the interested party (art. 9 paragraph 2) lett. e) of the GDPR). In any case, the importance of the user expressing his explicit consent to the processing of particular categories of data in the event he decides to communicate them is underlined. Data is kept for n. 1 year and a technical cookie that is used to memorize if users have viewed the pop up on the homepage announcing the partnership of A&F with other companies and which expires at the end of the browsing session. Please refer to what specified in the sections User rights and Data recipients.
Data collected through A&F Job Offers is processed in order to evaluate candidates’ professional profile and to set job interviews. Candidates are required to communicate only the necessary data. Data processing is based on the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the candidates (Article 6 n. 1 letter b) of the GDPR). In case of transmission of special categories of personal data (art. 9 of the GDPR as described above) but in the absence of an explicit consent to process such data, A&F cannot be held responsible nor can it receive any dispute since in the aforementioned case the processing will be lawful as having as object data made manifestly public by the interested party (art. 9 n. 1 letter e) of the GDPR). In any case, we underline the importance of expressing explicit consent to the processing of particular categories of personal data, if candidates decide to share them. The communication of data is a faculty of the candidates, the refusal to supply it makes it impossible to evaluate their profiles. If A&F is not interested in the professional profile, it deletes the data it has just received or at the end of the interview; if, instead, it is interested in the professional profile but no type of employment relationship is established, it keeps the data for n. 1 year in order to be able to contact the candidate in the future for other possible job interviews. In the event of the establishment of an employment relationship, a specific privacy statement will be provided. Please refer to what is specified in sections User rights and Data Recipients.
Data contained in the curricula sent to the addresses indicated on the Website is treated to evaluate the professional profile of the candidate and set any job interviews. The user is obliged to communicate only data considered necessary. Data processing is based on the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the user (Article 6 n. 1 letter b) of the GDPR).

In any case, we underline the importance of expressing explicit consent to the processing of particular categories of personal data, if the user decides to share them. The communication of data is a faculty of the users: the refusal to supply it implies the impossibility to send one’s own curriculum. If A&F is not interested in the professional profile, it deletes the data it has just received immediately or at the end of the interview; if, instead, it is interested in the professional profile but no type of employment relationship is established, it keeps the data for n. 1 year in order to be able to contact the candidate in the future for other possible job interviews.
