5.      Nature of the conferment

The providing of data for the purposes referred to in Paragraph a) is obligatory even if not the result of a regulatory requirement, inasmuch as it is required for registration on the present site and/or to conclude and effect execution of the relative contract for purchase of goods. Any refusal to consent to processing for the purposes listed above in Paragraph a) renders it impossible to register and purchase products at the Almostthere Srl website through which Almostthere Srl collects personal data.


The eventual refusal of consent with respect to Paragraph a) renders impossible the activities strictly related to and instrumental in managing relations with Almostthere Srl, which will also find itself in the position of not being able to provide the goods themselves, or necessary for the discharge of contractual obligations. The owner hereby notes, moreover, that any non-communication, or erroneous communication, of one of the required data, has the following consequences:

  • the impossibility of the owner to guarantee the completion of the registration on the present site and the adequacy of the processing itself to the eventual contractual pact for which the same was executed;
  • the possible failed correspondence of the results of the same processing to the eventual obligations imposed by the fiscal, administrative and civil regulations to which they are addressed.

In the case where the data indicated as “obligatory” are not inserted in the registration module, it will not be possible, therefore, to complete the registration procedure.


The conferment of data for the purposes of Paragraph b) is optional, i.e. it is not required as a matter of law: the failure to provide data for such purposes will have as its only consequence the impossibility to be contacted by Almostthere Srl for promotional communications, also personalized for information activities.

The refusal of consent for the purposes set forth above in Paragraph b), will not have any negative consequences with regard to your request and to effect execution of the relative contract (the purposes referred to in Paragraph a).

You may claim your rights according to Articles 7, 8, 9 and 10 of L.D. No. 196 of 30 June, 2003 by contacting the owner or the processing manager at Almostthere Srl.
