Users/visitors must carefully read this Privacy Policy before submitting any personal information and/or filling in any electronic form on the Site.

Privacy Policy

On 25 May 2018, the new regulation in the European Union, called the General Data Protection Regulation EU 2016/679 ("GDPR"), comes into force. The Regulation provides strict and specific guidelines on how personal data is collected and managed. This also applies to companies and people who reside outside the European Union but collect data from EU citizens.

What personal data we collect

When you use our services, you accept that our company collects some of your personal data. We process two types of data, personal data provided by the user for the use of our services and technical data that we automatically collect to improve the service we give you.

Data provided by the user

When you use our Site and our services we may collect the following data about you:

The above data can be collected at different times:

If you provide personal data of third parties, such as those of your family or friends, you must be sure that these subjects have been adequately informed and have consented to its processing in the manner described in this statement. We keep this data only for the purpose of providing the requested service and we do not disclose this data to third parties.

Holder of the treatment

The data controller of the data collected through this Site is Vinicola Cicella F.lli Schifone Srl, with registered office in Via Roma s.n. - 74020 Torricella (TA), VAT no. 02674560731, it decides independently on the purposes and methods of processing, as well as on the security procedures to be applied to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.

Data collected automatically

For the data collected using cookies or similar technologies, please visit the Cookie Policy section.

How and why we process your personal data

The processing of personal data is carried out with mainly electronic and telematic methods by MASSERIA CICELLA and by other subjects who, appropriately selected in terms of reliability and competence, carry out operations instrumental to the pursuit of the purposes strictly connected to the use of the Website, its services and '' purchase of products through the Website. In general, the data is processed for the provision of the following services available by accessing our Site:

In the processing of data that can, directly or indirectly, identify your person, we try to respect a principle of strict necessity. For this reason we have configured the Site in such a way that the use of your personal data is reduced to a minimum: therefore, the processing of your data is excluded when the purposes pursued in individual cases can be achieved through the use of anonymous data (such as, for example, in market research aimed at improving services) or through other methods that allow the data subject to be identified only in case of need or at the request of the authorities and police forces (such as, for example, for data relating to traffic and your stay on the Website or your IP address).

In some cases, as expressly indicated in the information, your data will be subjected - with your express consent - to processing aimed at creating profiles based on your preferences and purchases. This is intended to send you information targeted to your needs and interests.

Your data will be disclosed to third parties only with your express consent, except in cases where the communicationis required by law or is necessary for purposes provided for by law for the pursuit of which the consent of the interested party is not required; in such cases, the data may be made available to third parties who will process them independently and solely for the aforementioned purposes.

Any processing purpose other than the specific one for which you have provided your personal data will be highlighted in the information and will be pursued by MASSERIA CICELLA only after obtaining your express consent (what happens, for example, customer profiling activities based on preferences and purchasing habits).

There are, however, treatments for which the law provides for the exclusion of consent: for example, we inform you that MASSERIA CICELLA can process your personal data without obtaining your consent when this is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation or when it is necessary to execute the obligations assumed contractually towards you (as in the case in which you have purchased products or have requested to use specific services through our Site).

Finally, we inform you that your personal data will not be transferred abroad to countries other than those belonging to the European Union that do not ensure adequate levels of protection for individuals. If this is necessary to provide you with services or to conclude a contract with MASSERIA CICELLA for the purchase of products, we assure you that the transfer of your personal data to countries that do not belong to the European Union and that do not ensure an adequate level of protection will be carried out only after the conclusion between MASSERIA CICELLA and said subjects of specific contracts in accordance with the law and applicable regulations.

It may happen that MASSERIA CICELLA finds itself processing personal data of third parties communicated directly by its users to MASSERIA CICELLA, for example in the event that the user has purchased a product to be delivered to a friend or when the subject who pays the price for the purchase of the product is different from the person to whom the product is intended, or even when the user intends to report to a friend a service from or the offer for sale of a particular product.

In this case, the possible burden of obtaining the consent of the person to whom the data refers before communicating them to MASSERIA CICELLA and informing them about this Privacy Policy remains at your expense, because you will be the one and only responsible for the communication of information and of data relating to third parties without these having given their consent or for their possible incorrect use or against the law. We inform you that the consent of these persons is not necessary when the data of this subject are communicated to MASSERIA CICELLA for the conclusion of the contract, with MASSERIA CICELLA, in favor of the third party.

MASSERIA CICELLA reserves the right to delete accounts and all related data in the event that illicit content is detected, damaging the image of MASSERIA CICELLA and / or its products or third parties, or in any case offensive content or content that promotes illegal or defamatory activities, pornographic, inciting violence, promoting discrimination based on race, sex, religion and sexual orientation.

Optional or mandatory nature of providing data

The provision to MASSERIA CICELLA of your personal data that are requested on the various collection occasions may be necessary for the pursuit of the purposes identified in the specific information, or optional. The mandatory or optional nature of the provision is specified from time to time, with reference to the individual information requested, at the time of the individual data collection, by adding a specific character (*) to the mandatory information.
Any refusal to communicate to MASSERIA CICELLA some of your data marked as mandatory makes it impossible to pursue the main purpose of the specific collection: such refusal could, for example, make it impossible for MASSERIA CICELLA to execute the contract for the purchase of products on

The conferment to MASSERIA CICELLA of further data, other than those marked as essential, is optional and does not entail any consequence in order to pursue the main purpose of the collection (for example, depending on the case, the use of the Website and its services or the purchase of products and wine selections).

Retention of your data

We will not keep your information for any longer than we think is necessary.

The information we collect will be kept for the time necessary to fulfill the purposes described in the "How and why we process your personal data" section above, in line with our legitimate interest in the processing or for a period specifically required by regulations or laws applicable such as retaining information for regulatory reporting purposes.
