2.2.2. Providing (and consenting to the processing of) data requested for marketing purposes (commercial communications and sending advertising material other than newsletters, direct sales proposals, market research) and profiling (definition of individual or group profiles, customer segments with similar characteristics, consumer preferences) is particularly optional.

2.2.3. If permission is not given for these purposes, there will be no effect on the possibility to subscribe to the newsletter, to complete an online purchase, to open a personal account on the website, to become a holder or to use a Liu.Jo Card (each according to the specific “General Terms of Use”).

2.2.4. In particular, depending on the circumstances, these data may be: name, surname, gender, date of birth, complete address, phone number, email address, profession, favourite magazine or other consumer preferences or habits.

2.2.5.

However, if consent is not given for marketing and/or profiling purposes, the personal data that have in any case already been provided will never be processed by Liu Jo S.p.A. for the purpose specified.

2.2.7. These data will be processed both with paper and electronic media if the consent to process for marketing and profiling purposes is provided. The personal data processed for these purposes may be related to data regarding purchase transactions (purchased products, individual and overall costs, etc.) both online and at the stores. The data collected for profiling and/or marketing purposes will be stored at Liu Jo S.p.A. for a period no longer than 12 and 24 months, respectively, from their registration for said purposes. After this storage time has elapsed, the optional personal data will be automatically deleted or made permanently anonymous, while those previously collected for the purposes set out in paragraph 3.1, which are mandatory, will cease to be used for marketing and/or profiling purposes.
