1.A) Navigation data
When the Site is visited or consulted, Trendocracy does not generally collect the user’s personal data, except for so-called navigation data. As a matter of fact, the technological platform through which the Site is made available to users automatically records some of their navigation data – which are implicitly transmitted while using web communications protocols – such as, for example, the name of the internet provider, the site of origin, which pages have been viewed, date e duration of the visit etc.. Such information may be used in anonymous and aggregate form for statistical purposes and to verify the proper functioning of the Site.

1.B) Data provided voluntarily by the user
The personal data provided by users voluntarily when interacting with the “Jobs” or “Contact” feature of the Site in order to send their cv or personal and social network data are collected and processed by Trendocracy. In the latter case, pursuant to art. 13, para. 5-bis of the Privacy Policy, the user’s specific consent to the processing of the data provided in said section is not required.


Trendocracy shall process the user’s data for the following purposes:
• operational management of Site navigation;
• management of Site security;
• statistical analysis;
• search and selection of associates and personnel.


Processing takes place through the procedures or series of procedures set forth in art. 4, para. 1, letter a) of the Privacy Code (collection, recording, organization, storage, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, communication, deletion and destruction of data).
The procedures can be followed with or without the support of electronic or, in any case, automated systems. The processing is carried out by the data controller and/or the data processors and/or the persons in charge of data processing.
In pursuance of the Privacy Code, specific safety measures are observed in order to  prevent data loss, unlawful or improper use and unauthorized access.


Except for navigation data (which are automatically collected by the system), the provision of personal data by the user with regard to the “Jobs” or “Contact” feature of the Site is optional. The provision of personal data is necessary in order to use such feature of the Site. Failure to provide the data shall make it impossible to access said feature of the Site.


Trendocracy, with office in Rome, Via Giovanni Arrivabene n. 51, is the data controller (“Data Controller”).
The personal data may be conveyed to and processed by the data processors or the persons in charge of data processing, in compliance with the provisions of articles 29 and 30 of the Privacy Code, and they may be communicated for the purposes under point 2 to associates and employees of Trendocracy and, in general, to all those entities to whom such communication is necessary for the proper fulfilment of the purposes set forth under point 2.
An updated list of the data processors or the persons in charge of data processing can be obtained from the Data Controller identified below by sending a request to the following e-mail address
The user’s personal data shall not be distributed.


This Privacy Policy may be amended to comply with new legal provisions, with changed data processing procedures on part of Trendocracy, as a result of changes to the functioning of the Site or to the provision of services rendered by means of the same.
Trendocracy shall promptly communicate any updates, to be published on this section of the Site. Trendocracy therefore invites users to regularly check the Privacy Policy so as to make sure they are consulting the latest version.
