Privacy Policy

[Link: Comments from users of this website and the services of tickitaly]

This site is created in Italy and the owning company is registered in Italy (No. 05144650487) and as such operates under the Italian privacy Act 675/96, Article 10. The rights of the customer are protected by article 13 of the same Act. The articles (in Italian) can be viewed on this page, but below are the salient points:

The customer's personal data are recorded under the terms of Article 10 of the Italian Act 675/96, for the sole purpose of operating the requested services, and effecting the relevant communication requested by the customer.

The data will be given only to the relevant state booking office (or their representative), or to third parties authorised to carry out the services on behalf of said agency.

The customer is protected by Article 13 of Act 675/96 and, in particular, can require their personal data to be deleted from tickitaly.com's records at any time, by sending a simple written request. This may also be done via email. The proprietor and body responsible for the collection, conservation and handling of the data is the company:

TICKITALY - RENTING IN ITALY Srl.
VIA CURTATONE e MONTANARA 14
50053 EMPOLI (FI)
TUSCANY, ITALY

GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation. Europe, May 2018

We aim to be fully compliant with the scope of these new regulations, and have added consent check-boxes (with accompanying explanations) to all points across the site requiring you to supply personal information. We recognise the need for clients to be able to request copies of this information, and to be able to request removal of said information. Contact us using privacy@tickitaly.com for such requests.

Logically, you would not want to request data removal before you have visited Italy, as to do so would remove your voucher login and contact details - for example, we may need to get in touch to let you know about circumstances in Italy that could affect your visit.

Below, for reference, is a copy of the text we display when you register with our site:

Email addresses distinguish customers from each other. You sign in to the store by entering the email address and the password you provide here.

We (tickitaly.com) also send account-related emails (such as order status notifications, voucher links, password reset emails, and more) to the provided email address. For that reason we need to store your email address while you remain our customer. We will contact you once shortly after your visit in order to request feedback on our service.

Other profile fields that may or not be present on this page are stored alongside your email address. We may use this information to validate payments or to contact you, if the necessity arises.

Some members of our staff and/or suppliers who sell products in our store and use its administration panel may be able to access your data. We value your privacy, so the access to data is provided on a need-to-know basis in order to operate the store. For example, a supplier only receives your data if you ordered something from them, so that the supplier can confirm that order.

If you decide that you no longer want to use our store and would like to have your personal data removed from our database (or if you’d like to get all the personal data associated with your account that we have), please send an email to privacy@tickitaly.com. Logically, you would not want to request data removal before you have visited Italy, as to do so would remove your voucher login and contact details - for example, we may need to get in touch to let you know about circumstances in Italy that could affect your visit.

If you believe that your personal data has been misused, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. We’re obliged by the EU General Data Protection Regulation to let you know about this right; we don’t actually intend to misuse your data.

The section below is still valid from the point of view of our use of cookies.

Italian Data Protection Authority (DPA) and Cookies

As of June 3rd 2015 the law for Italian websites and cookies has changed. However, after repeated readings of the relevant legislation (see here) we have established, again, that we still do not need to seek explicit consent for any of our cookies; we only use 'technical' cookies as required by the shopping cart, and third-party cookies that do not fall under the scope of the act. Read below for more precise details on the various cookies in use.

The shopping cart system used on this site sometimes attempts to use cookies, but these are mainly session only cookies - essential for the functionality of the shopping cart - that will be deleted when you next exit your browser. The two cookies set by the cart that are not session cookies store (1) the language setting used to view tickitaly.com and (2) the referring site - if there is one - for your visit to tickitaly.com (from a Google link, a link on another site, a bookmark, you get the idea). These 2 cookies have a shelf-life of 1 year and 6 months respectively. None of this information is personally identifiable, it is all anonymous data.
