5. New European regulation GDPR for the protection of personal data

GDPR

5.1 – We comply with the new European GDPR regulation for the protection of personal data in force since 25 May 2018. GDPR is the English acronym for General Data Protection Regulation. In even more technical terms, it is the EU Regulation 2016/279. The purpose of the GDPR is to regulate the collection and processing of personal data, providing for controls and obligations towards those who collect and process such personal information.

5.2 – Any information relating to an individual, connected to his or her private, professional or public life is a given object of interest for the GDPR. By way of example, we can therefore mention: Name and surname, postal or e-mail address, date of birth, tax code, etc. Or even more ‘personal’ information such as those relating to health. Citing the regulation itself, any information concerning a natural person identified or identifiable through a characteristic data ‘of his physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity’ is personal data.

5.3 – Processing personal data does not necessarily mean exploiting or using them. It is very likely that personal data will be collected without being used, but this does not preclude compliance with the requirements of the GDPR. Even a simple information collection form such as e-mail or telephone number to be able to contact a potential customer is to be considered as processing of personal data. The following are therefore also considered processing, by way of example: conservation, organization, modification, extraction, consultation, cancellation, etc.

5.4 – It is your right to be informed. This is why we have updated our privacy policy, which now contains more information on how we process your personal data, how we store them and how we can process them in the provision of services, with specific indications on data transfers outside the EU that take place in the scope of service provision.

5.5 – You will always be able to access your online control panel directly and access the account management, invoices and payments sections, where you can update your personal data at any time. You can also contact us to make changes to your personal data, update it or correct any inaccuracies.

5.6 – Your personal data are stored in Register SPA’s datacenters, where they have strict building access controls, including biometric scanners. Physical access to the server is strictly limited to authorized personnel on site and virtual access is controlled through various authentication systems, including cryptographic keys.

6. Artificial Intelligence

6.1 – The control panel ∞Panel is able to automatically generate the ‘alt-texts’ (alternative descriptions for accessible ebooks) of the images in an ebook created by the Manager. The system interfaces with an API of a partner company.

6.2 – The partner company that provides the alt-texts does not store or retain any image (the Manager does it temporarily for three months). The partner company’s library consists of the original ‘image URLs’, the alt-texts generated by AI and metadata that the Manager provides them. All image data is deleted by the Manager three months after the ebook is delivered.

6.3 – The partner company is not a content distribution network (CDN) and is not a digital asset management (DAM) system. The Manager needs to store image files for the partner company which is just a service to generate alt-texts for those images.

6.4 – The generated alt-texts that the partner company provides to the Manager are for the exclusive use of the Manager for three months. The partner company does not use any alt-text of the Manager, ever. The image data that the Manager uploads to the partner company’s servers is stored only temporarily to be used for alt-text generation. Once processed, all data from the uploaded images is destroyed.
