In compliance with Article 13 of Italian Law 196/2003 regarding the privacy protection of personal data, we inform you of the following:

1) This law establishes a series of obligations for companies or organizations that “treat” (i.e. collect, record, process, store, communicate, disseminate, etc.) the personal data of other parties (defined by the law as “interested parties”) with whom they have relations in regard to their activity.

2) The purpose of the treatment of your personal and/or company/organization data is to allow Reggio Children and our collaborators and employees to carry out the following activities:
• Fulfillment of legal obligations regarding the relationship existing between Reggio Children and you (e.g. invoicing, mandatory accounting records, etc.);
• Fulfillment of our contractual obligations regarding collaborations established with you (e.g. supply of consulting services, information and all else requested by you, organization of initiatives in which you are registered, supply of books and audiovisual materials ordered by you, professional appointments, etc.);
• Activities with informational and promotional aims (e.g. notices regarding our activities and future projects in which you may be interested, offers, potential customer/supplier searches, information surveys, etc.).

3) The treatment of such data is carried out using manual systems and/or electronic and computerized systems for storing, managing, and transmitting the data according to procedures that are strictly tied to the above-listed purposes.

4) In order to pursue the purposes listed in point 2), your data may be communicated to:

• our employees and collaborators for the performance of the activities listed in point 2).

5) It is not mandatory for you to provide us with such data; however, your refusal to supply Reggio Children with the data requested or your refusal to consent to the treatment of such data as described herein may impede Reggio Children from carrying out the activities listed in point 2) (in which case we may not be held liable or negligent toward you).
