Dear Data Subject,

the protection of potential and/or current clients’ and users’ personal data has always been considered crucial by Magnus Siculus S.r.l.

With this document (hereinafter referred to as “the Information”), we intend to renew our effort to guarantee that the processing of your personal data, performed by any means, both automatic or manual, will be executed in full observance of the rights and protections recognized under the (EU) 2016/679 Regulation (hereinafter referred to as “the GDPR” or “the Regulation”) and under further applicable laws concerning personal data protection.

With the term personal data reference is made to the definition provided by art. 4(1) of the Regulation, namely “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person” (hereinafter referred to as “Personal Data”).

The Regulation provides that, before proceeding with the Personal Data processing – whereby it is to be understood, according to the definition provided by art. 4(2) of the Regulation, namely “any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction” (hereinafter referred to as “the Processing”) –the owner of such Personal Data must be informed on the reasons for which they were requested and in which ways they will be used.

In that respect, this Information – drafted according to the transparency principle and all the elements set out by art. 14 of the Regulation – aims to provide, in a simple and intuitive way, all the useful details you need to confer your Personal Data intelligently and prudently, or to request, at any time, clarifications or modifications.


The subject performing your Personal Data Processing for the purposes of Section C of this Information and that will therefore assume the role of Data Controller – according to the definition provided by art. 4(7) of the Regulation, namely “the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data” – is:

• Magnus Siculus S.r.l. (hereinafter referred to as “the Data Controller” or “Magnus Siculus”), with its registered office in Via Raffaele Maffei snc, 91022 Castelvetrano (TP) (hereinafter referred to as “the Registered Office”).


In order to allow you to register on this website (hereinafter referred to as “the Website”) – in the sections wherein registration and/or the submission of request using contact modules and/or the newsletter subscription is allowed – the Data Controller needs to collect some of your Personal Data.

Therefore, the Processing of your Personal Data will be performed by the Data Controller to allow you to join the initiatives promoted through the Website, to receive the newsletter, to send information requests, to purchase Magnus Siculus products as well as to enjoy all the other services in turn offered on the Website in which you have registered and/or in which you are browsing.

To ensure that the Data Controller correctly performs the Processing’s operations for the aforesaid purposes, you are required to provide the Personal Data that are not marked with the wording “(optional)”.

Such processing is lawful pursuant to art. 6, comma 1, point b) of the Regulation.

Failing to provide even one of the marked data will impede your Personal Data’s Processing; subsequently, your registration to the Website will not be finalized and/or you will not be able to access the services for which the Personal Data provision was required.

The Personal Data required for the aforesaid purposes will be the ones indicated in the registration form and/or the contact form, including but not limited to: name, surname, date of birth, permanent address/domicile, e-mail, house phone number, fiscal code or social security number.

In this case, you are entitled to read this Information within the Privacy section of the Website.


In addition to the purposes stated above, your Personal Data may be processed for Direct Marketing; the term “Direct Marketing” refers to promotional and/or marketing activities the Data Controller carries out to provide you an enhanced service, promote products and services of your liking sold and/or delivered by the Data Controller.

With respect to such direct marketing purposes, it should be noted that, pursuant to letter f) of art. 6(1) of the Regulation, the Data controller may carry out those activities pursuing legitimate interest, regardless of your consent and, in any case, until you object or restrict (according to Section G, letter d) of this Information) such Processing, as it is clear in Recital 47 of the Regulation, in which it is stated that: “The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes may be regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest”. This may be also due to evaluations made by the Data Controller concerning the potential and possible primacy of your interests, rights and fundamental liberties involved in the Personal Data Protection over his legitimate interest to send direct marketing communications.

You can legitimately revoke your consent, even partially, for the direct marketing purposes without prejudice to the Processing for other purposes.

The contacting methods related to direct marketing activities may be both traditional or automated. In any case, as better stated in Section G of the present Information, you can revoke your consent even partially, e.g. agreeing to the sole traditional contacting methods.

As for the contacting methods involving the usage of your mobile contacts, we remind you that direct marketing activities will be carried out only prior to verification of your subscription to the “Registro delle Opposizioni”, pursuant to and in accordance to D.P.R. 7 September 2010, n. 178 and subsequent modifications.
