1. The Policy
Each person has the right to the protection of their personal data. Ghirelli respects the right of its users to be informed about the collection and processing of their personal data. We always try to respect a principle of strict necessity in the processing of data that can identify you, even indirectly. For this reason, we have configured the Site so that the use of your personal data is reduced to the minimum necessary and in such a way as to exclude processing when the purposes pursued in individual cases can be achieved through the use of anonymous data or in other ways, which allow you to identify the person concerned only in case of need or at the request of the authorities and the police. This Privacy Policy provides all useful information to understand how we collect and use information that identifies users of the Site. For further information on our Privacy Policy you can send requests by e-mail to or to the addresses indicated above.
2. Who processes the data, how and for what purposes
Ghirelli is the owner of the processing of personal data of users of the Site, for the purpose of managing, concluding and executing business transactions involving the purchase of products through the same site ("Purposes"), Ghirelli decides the purposes and methods of these data processing and the tools to be used also with regard to the security profile. For organizational and functional reasons only, we have appointed certain external data controllers for the processing of personal data of users of the Site, for purposes strictly related and related to the provision of services on the Site, including the sale of products. These data processors have been chosen because they have demonstrated their ability, experience and reliability, and to provide a suitable guarantee of full compliance with current data processing regulations, including the data security profile. The data processors process the personal data of users of the Site according to the instructions given by Ghirelli.
For a list of those responsible for processing your data, please contact Customer Service or send an email to the following e-mail address:

In particular, in pursuit of the Purposes, as part of the processes of purchasing products on the Site we collect Personal Data (such as, for example, personal data, e-mail address, postal address, credit card and bank details, telephone number) through the order form for the sale of products on the Site.
Your personal data is mainly processed in electronic format and in some cases also in paper format, such as when the processing of your data is necessary to prevent fraud on the Site.

It may happen that Ghirelli processes personal data of third parties communicated directly by its users to Ghirelli, eg. when the user intends to report to a friend a service or a product for sale on the Site or when the user purchases a product to be delivered to a friend or when the person who pays the purchase price is different from the person to whom the product is shipped.
In the above cases you are invited to obtain the consent of the person to whom the data relates before disclosing them to Ghirelli, and to inform him of this Privacy Policy because you will be the only one and only responsible for the communication of information and data relating to third parties, without the latter have expressly requested, and for the incorrect use or use contrary to the law.
