In case of changes that significantly affect the rights of the registered user, the communication will be made with reasonable notice.

The data are processed for the following purposes.

Below is a description of the categories of data we deal with:

- Data supplied directly by the interested party: all personal data entered on the Sites (to proceed with online purchases or to register), or in any case provided to Parma Parmesan in any manner (e.g. in the context of promotional activities in Parma Parmesan stores, or on the occasion of participation in the courses, etc.). Examples of data provided directly by the interested parties are: name; address and telephone number; credit card data (processed only for the time necessary for the purchase, or for what is necessary in the case of periodic payments and, if the person concerned has not opposed to such processing by changing his settings in "My account", section "Payment Methods", saved for subsequent purchases).
