3. Nature of providing data and consequences if the User or Customer fails to reply
3.1 The provision of personal data is optional. However, failure to enter even a part of the data required in the fields of the different modules marked with an asterisk will make it impossible for ExpoItalyADV to proceed to the Services or the conclusion and execution of the sale online. In the other cases in which the provision of data is not compulsory for the execution of the Service or the sale of a Product, there are no consequences in case of refusal to provide the requested data and consent to their process, except for the inability to provide greater information on the developments of our Services and, in general terms, a better alignment of the same to the needs and expectations of Users and Customers.
3.2 ExpoItalyADV will request the prior consent to the processing of personal data where required by law.
3.3 Freely given consent may be withdrawn at any time though it will no longer be possible to utilise the Service in question.

Third party cookie – Flash Cookie
ExpoItalyADV uses Adobe Flash Player to provide certain multimedia content. On most computers, the program is installed as a default setting.
In case the User/Customer uses some of this content, Google Analytics stores additional data on the computer, also known as Flash cookie (or Local Share Object) by means of which it is possible to know the total number of times an audio/video file has been opened, the number of people using it to the end and how many people, however, close it before the end.
The Adobe website provides information on how to remove or disable Flash cookies for a specific domain like Alground. See URL:
Limiting and/or deleting the use of this type of flash cookie, the User can affect the functions available for applications based on Flash technology.
6. Redirect to external sites
The Website may utilise the so-called social plug-ins. Social Plug-ins are special tools that make it possible to incorporate Social Network functions directly within the Website (e.g. the “Like” function on Facebook).
All the social plug-ins on the Website are indicated by the respective social network logo.
When a User visits a page on the Website and interacts with a plug-in (e.g. by clicking the “Like” button) or decides to leave a comment, the corresponding information is sent by the browser directly to the social network platform (in this case, Facebook) and memorised by it.
7. Links to/from third party sites
From the Website Alground, links can be used to go to other web sites. You may also be directed to our Website by third parties. This second option is possible, in particular, with reference to advertisements on other web sites dedicated to the provision of news, advertising and services.
Given the above, ExpoItalyADV invites Users and Customers to pay the utmost attention when communicating personal data because those web sites are neither owned by the Data Controller nor do operate under the responsibility of the Data Controller. Rather they are wholly managed by other companies and/or organisations. The User must, therefore, read and, possibly, accept the relevant policies on privacy protection.
The Data Controller ExpoItalyADV declines all responsibility for any requests for and/or granting of personal data to third party web sites and in relation to management of the authentication credentials issued by third party entities.
8. Communication and dissemination of personal data
8.1 Personal data collected will not be released to third parties by ExpoItalyADV except where it is necessary to execute the sale (e.g.: communication of data necessary to the courier, for the delivery of the Product purchased by the Customer, or to the bank, for the reimbursement in case of withdrawal by a “Consumer” as defined in the Website). Users’ data (including, but not limited to, the IP address) may, however, be communicated to competent Authorities, administrative or other public entity entitled to require them, in the cases provided by law.
8.2 ExpoItalyADV does not sell nor provide the personal data of Users to third parties for marketing purposes.
9. Rights of data subjects
“Data subjects”, i.e. the persons/subjects to whom the personal data processed via this Website relates, have the right to exercise their rights in the manner and subject to the limits laid down by the applicable privacy legislation.
In order to exercise those rights, obtain an up-to-date list of Data Processors (where designated), report any problems or request clarification about the processing of your personal data, please send your requests to the Data Controller, specifying the nature of the request, to the address published on the Website, under the item “Legal Notice”.
10. Data controller and data processors
The Data Controller is ExpoItalyADV di Trizio Consulting having its registered offices at the address published on the Website under the item “Legal Notice”.
This Policy regulates the methods of processing personal data supplied by Users and Customer when navigating the Website and purchasing the Products. The introduction of any new regulations in the field of data protection, like the constant review and updating of Services for the Users, may result in the need to change these methods. It is, therefore, possible that our Policy will be amended over time and, therefore, we invite Users and Customers to consult this page periodically.
