Privacy policy

In compliance with EU Regulation 679/2016 (“The European regulation on the protection of personal data”), we safeguard the data provided by users. Here is how we manage personal data.

Dear User,
Welcome to the Shoppingscanner site. Safeguarding the confidentiality of personal data and the security of users are extremely important to us. That is why the data provided to us is processed in compliance with the principles of lawfulness, correctness and transparency, as well as being based on that set forth in this information notice. In using the Shoppingscanner site, you automatically accept the processing of your data as described below. We therefore invite you to read this document carefully and to contact our Processor (in terms of processing personal data) in the event in which this privacy policy does not answer all your questions.

The Controller and the Processor (in terms of processing personal data):

The Controller is Blue Inx S.r.l., (VAT Nr: IT06234550488), with main office in Viale Giovanni Milton 27 - 50129 Firenze.

The Processor appointed by Blue Inx may be reached by email at: privacy@blueinx.com.

We also advise you that, as part of certain individual operations, Processing may be entrusted to natural persons who have been appointed to carry out the processing and who, in any case, are under the Processor’s supervision and control and will process data by following the directives given by the same.

What types of data are processed?

We only process the data that you enter when you register with us, that is your email address.

It is also possible to register with us by using a Google or a Facebook account. If you use one of these two tools, the data we process are: the email address, ID and username of the relative account, in full respect of the privacy policy established by Google or Facebook, as the case may be.

What is my data used for?

Blue Inx S.r.l., as the Controller, complies with all the principles established by law regarding the processing of personal data. The legal basis for processing data is your consent, which is given when you register, as well as the company’s legitimate interests, pursuant to article 6(1)(a) and (f) of EU Regulation 679/2016. Hence, we process the data which you provide solely for the purposes described in this document and which are, primarily:

  1. To provide you with information on products and offers supplied by third parties (“Partners”);
  2. To guarantee access to your account and to allow you to manage it;
  3. To allow you to save your favourite products in your wish list;
  4. To allow you to enable “Sales Alerts” in order to be notified, by email, when the price of an article in your Wish List drops;
  5. To send you Newsletters, if you have given your consent.

We do not use personal data for Marketing purposes nor do we transfer data to third parties for such purposes.

Methods by which data is processed and data security

We do not use any automated decision-making process and the data provided to us will never be used for computerised and automated profiling.

The data you provide when registering is collected in full respect of the data’s security and confidentiality, in compliance with that required by EU Regulation 679/2016. The data is stored in the Cloud provided by our Internet Service Provider (ISP), with access keys and security systems which the ISP continually manages and updates. Processing will be carried out by the Processor and, on the basis of the Processor’s directives, by other parties duly appointed to carry out processing.

In the unlikely event that our security systems are breached, we will notify you of it promptly and will advise you of the countermeasures we have taken, are taking or will take, so that you may adopt the protective measures which you deem to be most appropriate.

To whom is my data communicated?

Data may be communicated to public and private parties who may access data by virtue of the law, mandatory regulations or EU directives, within the limits and for the purposes provided for by such measures.
We do not, in any case, transfer your data to international organisations or to third countries.

For how long will my data be processed?

We collect and store your data for the entire time needed to achieve the purposes referred to in this information notice and for a reasonable time from the date on which you last used your account. Once this period has terminated, you will be sent an email asking whether you are still interested in continuing to use our services. Should you no longer be interested, all your data will be deleted. After another period of time has passed without any use of our services, your data will, in any case, be deleted.

The User’s rights

We advise you that, pursuant to articles 15 to 21 of EU Regulation 679/2016, the Controller will ensure that users may exercise the following rights at any time:

  1. To request the Controller to confirm, or otherwise, whether the personal data that concerns them is currently subject to processing and, if so, to request access to this data and to be told of the purpose(s) for which it is processed;
  2. To be told the period for which their personal data will be stored and the expected duration;
  3. In the event that personal data is believed to have been breached and the Processor’s responses are deemed unsatisfactory or incomplete, Users may lodge a complaint with a Supervisory Authority which, in Italy is the Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante per la protezione dei dati personali), by following the procedures and the instructions published on the Authority’s official website, www.garanteprivacy.it
  4. To ask, and to obtain from, the Controller, in the cases provided for by domestic and European laws on privacy the erasure and/or the rectification of their personal data and to restrict processing of the same.

Should you have any query or require further information or for any other need, you may contact our Processor by sending an email to: privacy@blueinx.com.

Users who are minors

Blue Inx, the Controller, does not intend to collect nor to process, in any way whatsoever, data belonging to users who are under the age of 18 who have registered at our site without authorisation from one of their parents or their guardian.
However, in using the site and the services provided through the site, we do not ask Users to indicate their age and Blue Inx is not in a position to ascertain or verify a User’s age.
The Controller therefore invites every User who is under the age of 18 not to send, under any circumstances whatsoever, any personal data without authorisation from one of their parents or their guardian. In the event that a User, who is a minor, is found to have concealed their age, or has, in any case, communicated their personal data without having the appropriate parental/guardian authorisation to do so, the Controller reserves the right to block their access to the Services and/or to exclude them from the Community.
The Controller encourages parents (or guardians) to monitor their child’s (children’s) use of the internet in order to safely browse filtered internet content, including through the use of parental control tools. In addition to ensuring an on-line environment suitable for minors, these tools can also prevent personal data from being divulged by children who do not have the authorisation from a responsible adult to do so.

Cookie policy

This Site uses cookies. Cookies are text files which the Site stores on a User’s computer in order to ease and improve navigation of the Site itself. Thanks to cookies, a registered User can be recognised by the Site, thereby avoiding, for example, having to go through the login process (with “login” and “password”) every time the User accesses the Site. Furthermore, cookies can allow Users to customise their use of the Site by saving their settings.
Cookies also contain other information relative to how the User browses. Each User has the ability to disable cookies through the software used on their computer to browse the internet (the so-called “browser”). Many browsers are set to accept cookies unless configured otherwise by the User. The Controller invites Users to check their browser settings regarding cookies, and to modify them to their own preferences, bearing in mind, however, that, in order to use certain Services, some cookies may have to be accepted. The technological platform through which this Site is made available to Users, including through cookies, automatically records certain information about the User’s personal computer and their browsing habits, such as, for example: the originating site, the pages visited, the date and the duration of the User’s visit, etc. This information is only used for statistical purposes.
Some third-party cookies can be installed by third parties who act as independent controllers (in terms of processing personal data). In this regard, we invite Users to access the extensive information on these third parties at our site: Awin, Partnerize, CJ Affiliate, Tradedoubler, Tradetracker, Rakuten Marketing LLC, Effiliation.
Interaction with social networks: this involves third-party tools that exhibit ways of interacting with social networks. For example, systems for sharing content on Facebook and Twitter: cookies, in this case, are needed in order for the sharing mechanism to work.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. Google Analytics uses “cookies” to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. In the case of an anonymous activated IP address, your IP address will only be abridged when within one of the European Union member states or when within one of the agreed contracted states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP Address be transferred to a Google Server in the USA in order to be abridged there. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

Shoppingscanner applies Google Conversion Tracking. In this context, Google places a cookie on your computer if you reach this website via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and do not serve any personal identification. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an adword client and if the cookie has not expired, Google and the client can verify that the user has clicked on the ad and was directed to this website. Each adword client receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore can not be traced back via the websites of adword clients. The information collected by means of the conversion cookie serves the purpose to create conversion statistics for adword clients that have taken a decision towards conversion tracking. Adword clients receive the overall number of users who have clicked on their ad and haven been directed to a website with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows the personal identification of users. If you do not wish to take part in the tracking procedure, you may decline the required placement of a cookie – for instance with a browser setting that generally deactivates the placement of cookies. .

Changes to this document

This information notice may be subject to change in order to comply with new legislation, with changes to the Controller’s policies or following changes to the Site’s characteristics and features. Users will be notified of any changes and/or updates as soon as they become effective and will be binding from the moment they are published on the site itself.
