Data collection and treatment based on legitimate interest of Stefano Boeri Architetti S.r.l.
If you are our customer or our supplier, if you have shown interest in our business by sending us requests for information or by giving us your contact details, we may use the data you provided to insert you in our list that includes the people who, we believe, may appreciate to receive our Newsletters and our invitations.
Since this type of processing does not require your express consent, we have carefully considered that our legitimate interest (related to the purpose of promoting our business) is always balanced and does not override your fundamental rights and freedoms.
For this reason we only include in the lists of recipients of the Newsletters those people who have expressed interest in our business or who have commercial or professional relationships with us. And for this reason we have decided that, as soon as you are included in the list, we will send you an email to give you news and to allow you, if you do not agree to receive our Newsletter, to deactivate the service simply and quickly by clicking a button in our email.
Use of the email service provided by MailChimp
We would like to inform you that we use MailChimp services to send our Newsletters.

MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the Newsletter on our behalf.
MailChimp can by its own admission also use this data to enhance or improve its own services, e.g. to technically enhance the dispatch procedure or for commercial purposes to be able to determine which countries the recipients are from.
However, MailChimp will not use your data to contact you directly or forward them to third parties.

Our interests focus on the use of a user-friendly and secure Newsletter system that serves our business expectations.
Statistical surveys and analyses
Our emails contain a “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server whenever you open our emails.
This means that, when you receive our email, technical information, such as information on the browser and your system as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval will be retrieved.
This information is only used to make technical improvements to services and may be assigned to individual Newsletter recipients for technical reasons only.
The statistical survey permits us to know whether the Newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked on.
This kind of information helps us to adapt our Newsletter’s contents and to send you emails interesting to you.
