    Purpose of data processing
    As better explained in the sections that allow you to adhere – by releasing your personal data – to the services reserved to the users of our site, the requested data is used to respond to requests expressly made by the user. In particular, all data collection and subsequent processing activities are aimed at pursuing the institutional aims of CESI onlus and, in particular for:
  • regular and one-off donations, performed in various ways (credit card, bank direct debit, PayPal or other);
  • request for collaboration with CESI onlus;
  • signing of petitions, initiatives or specific projects and activities of CESI onlus;
  • information on testamentary legacies;
  • to know how to donate the 5xmille to CESI onlus in the context of its own tax return and to make use of the related tax deductions;
  • request for information;
  • direct the user to our social channels;
  • comply with laws, regulations and legislation;
  • send promotional, advertising material about our mission and awareness actions / projects, carry out surveys and research;

As reported in the list above, personal data may be processed for purposes other than those for which the user has issued them.

In any case, CESI onlus will not use the data provided for purposes other than those connected to the service to which the user has subscribed, and, in any case, only within the limits indicated from time to time in the information to be provided pursuant to art. 13, GDPR.

Data processing methods
All processing operations performed on this site will be carried out using both paper and electronic or telematic tools, with logic related to the purposes for which the data was collected and in compliance with the applicable safety standards, for the purposes specified by time in time in the information to be provided pursuant to art. 13, GDPR.

Data collection criteria
The forms to be filled out – online or to be downloaded – include both data that are strictly necessary to adhere to what is of interest and whose non-indication does not allow the request to be executed, and optional conferment data. Therefore, the user is free to provide personal data contained in the application forms or indicated in contacts with CESI onlus non-profit organization to request information or for other purposes first listed. In these cases of mandatory data provision, their absence may make it impossible to obtain what is requested.


Criteria used to define the limit of data retention
The data will be kept in our archives (Article 4, paragraph 6, GDPR: “any structured set of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, regardless of whether this set is centralized, decentralized or distributed in a functional or geographical manner”) according to criteria variable according to the data category, the nature of the processing and the purposes of the processing itself. The precise conservation criteria or limit are described in the information to be provided pursuant to art. 13, GDPR when providing personal data.

In principle, the following evaluation by CESI onlus is valid to establish the data retention criterion:

all the data with respect to the various forms of donation are kept as long as the relationship remains active and for a number of years equal to that which laws, regulations, even community ones, impose for administrative and accounting purposes. Furthermore, they will be kept for the time strictly necessary to pursue the legitimate interest of CESI onlus non-profit organization in the case of enforcing or defending a right in a court of law or otherwise ordered by law enforcement, judiciary and control bodies for their institutional activities. For administrative and accounting purposes, the data will be kept for no. 10 (ten) years.

After the above periods have elapsed, the identification data are transformed into anonymous form and used only for statistical reports that do not allow to trace the identity of the person but which are useful for adapting the projects, initiatives and actions for the realization and achievement of the statutory and institutional objectives of CESI onlus. Personal data (personal identification data) will therefore be destroyed.

For purposes related to the provision of the service to which the user has adhered, the data could be made available to third parties, which will act as autonomous data controllers, and which provide instrumental services to satisfy the user’s request (for example, credit institutions or credit card issuers to manage donation payments) or to whom the communication of data is necessary to comply with laws or regulations.

Place of data processing

Navigation data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this site acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified users, but by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow identification of the users themselves. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the site, 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 (successful, error or similar) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s computer environment. These data are only used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.


The security of your personal data
CESI onlus adopts suitable and preventive security measures designed to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, completeness and availability of your personal data. As established by the regulatory provisions governing the security of personal data, technical, logistical and organizational measures are developed which aim to prevent damage, even accidental losses, alterations, improper and unauthorized use of the data concerning you.
Similar preventive safety measures are adopted by third parties (data processors) which CESI onlus has entrusted with processing operations of your data for its own account.
On the other hand, CESI onlus does not hold itself responsible for the untruthful information sent directly by the user (example: correctness of the e-mail address or postal address or other personal data), as well as information concerning him and which are been provided by a third party, even fraudulently.

Credit card and financial information necessary for the donation
In the case of a donation made by credit card, CESI onlus guarantees maximum confidentiality and security. The financial information of the credit card (number, expiration, general information of the holder) may be known exclusively by the issuing institution. CESI onlus will have knowledge only of a code (“token”) that has no possibility of tracing back to the identity of the credit card holder or to the credit card details.
Similarly, the same criteria of confidentiality and confidentiality will be maintained in the event of a donation made by bank transfer, for which only a “causal code” is requested when making the transfer.
If the donation is made through PayPal, you will be redirected to the PayPal site and, therefore, the criteria of confidentiality and security compete exclusively with PayPal, excluding any liability on the part of CESI onlus.
In general, finally, CESI onlus does not assume any responsibility with regard to unauthorized or fraudulent use by third parties of information pertaining to the instruments used for the transaction connected to the donation.
