2. PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND PURPOSES
DENV-G, to the extent necessary, collects, processes, registers, stores and transfers Data Subjects’ Personal Data provided offline through Forms or online through the Website and/or Applications while, for example, but not limited to: visiting the Website; using Applications; filling in offline or online registration Forms; reporting non-compliance; contacting DENV-G; submitting job applications; clicking on social media buttons; providing feedback (e.g. on Forms, products, Applications, Website, customer service); answering to surveys and other activities.
Personal Data are collected either on a facultative basis or on a compulsory basis. If it is compulsory to provide the Personal Data, this will be marked accordingly. In case a Data Subject fails or denies providing the Personal Data that DENV-G has marked as compulsory, as a consequence DENV-G will not be able to carry on the process or the activity requested by that Data Subject.
An example of Personal Data that is marked as compulsory is the situation in which a Data Subject wants to submit registration Forms. In this case DENV-G needs some personal details in order to process the related request of registration. If the Data Subject wishes to register but does not provide the personal details marked as compulsory, DENV-G will not be able to accept and process the request of registration.
DENV-G can collect Personal Data on a consent basis or without the consent of the involved Data Subject if: 1) a legal obligation must be fulfilled; 2) a contract in which the Data Subject is party has to be performed or will be performed; 3) there are legitimate interests, public interests or vital interests to protect that prevail on the rights of the involved Data Subject; 4) an authority has requested DENV-G to process Personal Data.
DENV-G can further process your Personal Data only:
if the purpose of the further Processing is compatible with the purpose of the initial collection of your Personal Data;
if you provide your consent to further Processing for a purpose which is new and not compatible with the purpose of the initial collection of your Personal Data.
Please find below, under subparagraphs 2.1. and 2.2., the Personal Data we collect and the purposes for which we collect them.


2.1. PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT FROM YOU OR FROM THIRD PARTIES.
You can be asked to provide us, depending on the purpose of each Processing and to the extent necessary, different kind of Personal Data including, but not limited to, name, surname, date and place of birth, title, address, telephone, mobile, email address, language, country, nationality, identity card, driver’s license number, national registration number, passport number, curriculum information, employer, occupation, client number, personal social media URL, credit card, preferences, interests, feedbacks.
We also use Personal Data you provided to third parties, for example to service providers, or Personal Data that fall within the public domain such as commonly acknowledged Personal Data, Personal Data visible on your own website or blog or posted on your publicly accessible social media profile.
DENV-G may also receive Personal Data via third parties after mergers, acquisitions and any other transforming operation.
2.1.1 Purposes of the collection of Personal Data.
Once collected, we use such Personal Data mentioned above for a variety of purposes. Please find them listed below:


Business Administration and customer management.
DENV-G has to be able to perform contracts duly and properly and to carry out all the necessary statutory and accounting processes. Accordingly, DENV-G will need some Personal Data provided by Data Subjects offline through Forms or online through Website and Applications. In accordance with Regulation (EU) 679/2016, for the purpose of performing contracts, the consent of the Data Subject that is or is going to be a party to a contract is not required.
With regard to the management of relationship with customers and the provision of consumer services, DENV-G uses Personal Data (e.g. name, country, nationality, email address, client number, credit card information) in order to:
assess whether it would be feasible to sell products or provide services to a customer before entering into a contract;
process customers’ written requests, customers’ orders of products and services and requests of cash-back;

Direct marketing.
As leading manufacturer and supplier of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment (including heat pumps and refrigeration) and of solution business, DENV-G is in the position to provide you with information that is tailored to you and your needs (for example, by using your transaction details, DENV-G is able to inform you about services, offers and suggestions related to your purchase. This is the so called “direct marketing”).
DENV-G uses collected Personal Data, Personal Data that is publicly available (e.g. information available on Internet, through results of the searches, social media results) or Personal Data received from third parties (e.g. Internet Service Providers) for direct marketing purposes and to attract new customers.

DENV-G also uses your transaction details to develop global models and to perform analyses.
Example: DENV-G may need to process the number of people that have bought a specific Daikin product or have applied for a specific service.
In this regard, DENV-G commits as much as possible to aggregate Personal Data in anonymous or Pseudo Anonymous form to make sure that these Personal Data are not easily or are no longer identifiable as yours.
The practice of Processing Personal Data for statistical purposes is particularly justified by DENV-G’s desire to put in place strategic choices in order to better perform in the market and to provide you with better products and services.
Personal Data can also be used to assess, simplify and improve DENV-G’s processes, for example in order to optimize campaigns, procedures and sales, both offline or online, through the Website and/or through Applications.
Example: if you have not completed a procedure or the sales process, we may contact you to find out what went wrong and whether we can help you. In this case we limit our contact to providing technical and administrative support for that specific procedure or process.

Legal Claims and Disputes.
We can use Personal Data as evidence and for ascertaining, exercising and safeguarding the rights of DENV-G or of those it represents (e.g. in disputes) before any jurisdiction of any country (for example, among others, the right of DENV-G to defend itself from acts of unfair competition or the right of DENV-G to solicit the fulfilment of an unpaid invoice).

3. Will PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED be disclosed to third parties?

4. Transfer PERSONAL data to third countries (NON-EU)
Within the scope of the above described purposes DENV-G transmits and jointly uses the Personal Data collected, belonging to Data Subjects present in the European Union, with DIL and/or other Daikin Group’s companies and/or Business Partners established in any non-EU countries.

Functional cookies may be used to provide you with online services or to avoid offering you services that you have refused in the past.
Moreover, we would like to inform you that it is technically possible to authorise advertisers or third parties to supply content and other online experiences via this website.
