The personal data processed by NOW Italia are exclusively those you provided by using the Website. These data will be processed exclusively for the following purposes:

a. to enable the use of the Website and its Services, including, upon your request, the sending to your email address of our daily newsletter containing all the articles published on the Website and invitations to our events. The legal basis for the processing is the performance of a contract to which you are a party. The provision of your personal data for this purpose is mandatory, because your refusal to do so would prevent us from delivering the Services.

b. to send to your email address our daily newsletter containing all the articles published on the Website, the invitations to our events and additional contents (webinars, podcasts, white papers, video speeches and video interviews, infographics, e-Books, etc.), in line with your selected fields of interest. The legal basis for the processing is your explicit consent. The provision of your personal data for this purpose is voluntary. However, in the absence of such consent, the Data Controller will not be able to keep you updated on the latest news and events in line with your actual professional and scientific interests.

Your personal data may be processed both by computer and on paper.


The Data Controller will retain your personal data for a period not longer than that necessary to achieve the purposes for which they are collected and processed.

The data provided for subscription to the newsletter will only be stored for the period during which the service is active. Profiling data will be stored for 12 months after collection.

This is without prejudice to the case in which we will need to retain such data in order to comply with regulatory obligations, or to ascertain, exercise or actively defend our rights in court.


The data processed shall not be disclosed to third parties. However, for the fulfilment of the above-mentioned purposes, your personal data may be disclosed to:

  • those who can access data in accordance with legal obligations under Union or a Member State Law to which the Data Controller is subject;
  • those who perform, in complete autonomy, activities related to the activities and services mentioned in paragraph 3, as separate Data Controllers, as well as Data Controllers appointed to this end by NOW Italia, or also companies providing services for drafting and sending our newsletters, companies organising events, insurance companies, law firms, companies providing computer assistance and consultancy as well as design and implementation of software, service centres, companies or consultants responsible for providing services to the Data Controller, within the limits of the purposes for which they were collected;
    In addition, your personal data may be also disclosed to our employees, provided that they have been previously designated as persons acting under the authority of the Data Controller, according to Art. 29 of the GDPR.

Any disclosure of your personal data will be done in full compliance with the legal provisions of the GDPR and the technical and organisational measures adopted by the Company to ensure an appropriate level of security.


The entire processing of personal data takes place within the borders of the European Union. Therefore, the Data Controller does not transfer your personal data to third countries.


If you explicitly consent to the processing of your personal data to receive our daily newsletters containing only the articles published on the Website and invitations to our events in line with the selected fields of interest, the Data Controller will use automated processes aimed at profiling your preferences. The aim is to offer you the opportunity to receive newsletters and invitations matching with your interests and preferences. Therefore, as a consequence of profiling activities, you may benefit from receiving contents tailored exclusively to your interests.
In any case, pursuant to Article 22, subparagraph 3, of the EU Regulation, the Data Controller takes all the most appropriate measures to protect your rights and liberties, also in case of profiling, in addition to any other legitimate right, as better specified in the subsequent paragraph (“Rights of the Data subject”) of this Privacy Policy.

  • Object, at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data;
  • Not to be subject to decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling;
