Registration to the reserved area
There is a reserved area on the data controller’s website to which the user can register after completing the appropriate form.
The user’s registration request, as well as the suitability of the user’s profile, is initially assessed by the data controller’s, duly authorised staff.
Once the application for registration has been approved, the company database “Customer Relationship Management” (so-called CRM) automatically assigns temporary credentials to the user via email which the user must use for first access. The credentials consist of the user’s email address and a temporary password which the user must change after the first access. The aforementioned password will only be made known to the user.
The user is activated on the WordPress platform, used by the data controller.
The password chosen by the user will be stored on the aforementioned platform and also copied in the CRM, but will never be accessible to the data controller.
In order to provide an increasingly personalised and functional service, the data controller intends to profile users who register via one of the three forms on the website (personal area, newsletter, request for information) after processing the country of origin and profession/job category (architect, interior designer, etc.), in order to prepare commercial communications which target the user’s interest as far as possible.
Specific consent for the profiling activity will always be requested beforehand in all cases. If the user does not give his/her consent, the relevant data will not be subject to profiling by the data controller.
The owner of the website uses Wroopa platform to monitor the browsing activity of the users registered to the reserved area (files download and browsing of the website pages) in order to obtain statistical reports and an analysis of the preferences aimed at forwarding communications and advertising in lines with the preferences and commercial needs of the user (so called one-to-one Marketing).
Specifically, Wroopa platform is used for the following processing purposes:
• Monitoring and tracking the downloads and page view by the users logged into the reserved area. In this case, profiling consent will be accepted during registration to the reserved area;
• Monitoring page view’s actions of users not registered to the reserved area. This monitoring will take place subject to the user’s consent by using an appropriate function in the banner and, in this case, the user will be monitored as „Anonymous“.
Only after registering to the reserved area, actions’ monitoring will take place unambiguously (with identification by name, surname, email address, nation and language).
Wroopa platform detects user logs without storaging or transfering from another platform.
