Timeliness may vary depending on the type of request or question posed.

Warning against Risk

This section serves to warn the users to carefully evaluate the possibility of risk during their interventions, whether to include personal information or not (including e-mail addresses, phone numbers etc.), which may indirectly reveal their identity. The same attention should be applied when referring to sensitive data as well as publishing audio, photographic and video-graphic material which could allow the identification of people without given consent or authorization for the processing of such data. Users are also warned to be very careful to not include data that may indirectly identify third parties. Users should also be aware that interventions on social media may be publicly visible and accessible from any network user who has access to the site or by Social Media, indexed and traceable even by general search engines (Google, Yahoo etc.).

Rules for Use

Sipol Spa pages / channels which are available on various Social Media, can be followed freely by all network users, without authorization on behalf of Controller; for this reason Sipol Spa suggests taking great caution with the dissemination of personal and/or sensitive data when using such platforms . The terms of use and privacy policies applicable to each Social Media are published on their websites and regulate all information provided by the user . The Controller has no form of control on use of personal information disclosed in a public forum and comment balloon, therefore making the platform user is solely responsible for any disclosure. The Controller invites all social participants to express their views (whenever possible) with accuracy and measure; for this reason insults and vulgarity will not be tolerated. Sipol Spa reserves the right to report to the Social Media management when detecting the use of foul language, insults, threats and attitudes that could invoke violence.

Privacy and personal data

Please note that the processing of personal data of any user will respect the Policy Code applied on the platforms used. Privacy on Social Media is guaranteed to the extent that the user is aware of how he is using the platform, its service and its potential. Therefore, the information generated will be shared “voluntarily” by users who will be fully aware of any possible violation of the personal sphere. Article 21 of the Italian Constitution protects freedom of expression by posing some limits. Unfortunately among these we find that the reputation of others is rarely respected. When a judgment is expressed against a user, it should be remembered that the author may be held accountable for defamation when using expressions which are considered “too strong or colorful”. Everyone has the right to intervene and express their free opinion.
All personal data submitted by users will be processed by Sipol Spa in compliance with the Regulation (UE) 2016/679 and the provisions (especially matters concerning the purposes and processing methods of data) in the Privacy & Cookie Policy published on the Sipol Spa website, which the user is asked to view before reading the Social Media Policy.
