Personal Data processed
When you use the Website, Maserati will collect and process information regarding you (as an individual) which allows you to be identified either by itself, or together with other information which has been collected. Maserati may also be able to collect and process information regarding other persons in this same manner, if you choose to provide it to Maserati.
This information may be classified as “Personal Data” and can be collected by Maserati both when you choose to provide it (e.g., when you subscribe to the newsletter or request a test drive, in order to receive Maserati’s Services) or simply by analysing your behaviour on the Website.
Personal Data which can be processed by Maserati through the Website are as follows:
Name, contact details and other Personal Data
In various sections of the Website – including, in particular, if you decide to create an account on the Website – you will be asked to submit information such as your name, phone / mobile numbers, e-mail address, date of birth, country of residence and address etc. When subscribing or signing up to receive Services, you might be asked to provide information as to your preferred mode of payment – PayPal, bank transfer or credit card.
In addition, whenever you participate in surveys and other promotions which may be available on the Website, as well as whenever you communicate with Maserati through the contact details provided in the Website or with Customer Service, Maserati may collect additional information which you choose to provide.
Special categories of Personal Data
Certain areas of the Website (such as the form to request a test drive) include free text fields where you can provide Maserati with some information or needs, which you may use to communicate Personal Data.
Where these fields are completely free, you may use them to disclose (inadvertently or not) more sensitive categories of Personal Data, such as data revealing your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership. The content you upload in these fields may also (inadvertently or not) include other types of sensitive information relating to you, such as your genetic data, biometric data or data concerning your health, sex life or sexual orientation.
Maserati asks that you do not disclose any sensitive Personal Data on the Website, unless you consider this to be strictly necessary. As it is totally optional to provide this information, if you do, please mind that Maserati needs your explicit consent to process on sort of Personal Data. Maserati would stress the importance of providing your explicit consent to process this sort of Personal Data if you decide, nonetheless, to share it.
Other persons’ Personal Data
As mentioned in the previous section, certain areas of the Website include free text fields where you can write messages to Maserati. These messages may (inadvertently or not) include Personal Data related to other persons.
In any situation where you decide to share Personal Data related to other persons, you will be considered as an independent data controller regarding that Personal Data and must assume all inherent legal obligations and responsibilities. This means, among other things, that you must fully indemnify Maserati against any complaints, claims or demands for compensation for damages which may arise from the processing of this Personal Data, brought by the third parties whose information you provide through the Website.
As Maserati does not collect this information directly from these third parties (but rather collects them, indirectly, from you), you must make sure that you have these third parties’ consent before providing any information regarding them to Maserati; if not, then you must make sure there is some other appropriate grounds on which you can rely to lawfully give Maserati this information.
The Website’s operation, as is standard with any websites on the Internet, involves the use of computer systems and software procedures, which collect information about the Website’s users as part of their routine operation. While Maserati does not collect this information in order to link it to specific users, it is still possible to identify those users either directly via that information, or by using other information collected – as such, this information must also be considered Personal Data.
This information includes several parameters related to your operating system and IT environment, including your IP address, location (country), the domain names of your computer, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of resources you request on the Website, the time of requests made, the method used to submit requests to the server, the dimensions of the file obtained in response to a request, the numerical code indicating the status of the response sent by the server (successful, error, etc.), and so on.
These data are used to compile statistical information on the use of the Website, as well as to ensure its correct operation and identify any faults and/or abuse of the Website. Save from this last purpose, these data do not persist for more than 7 working days.
