Browsing data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this Site acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data, including the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Rizoma Site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the user’s operating system and computer environment. 

These data, collected by means of cookies and metadata described in the Cookie Policy of the Rizoma Site, to which reference is made and used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and to check its correct functioning, are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.

Contact details, personal details, relating to purchases, selected for the wish lists and billing

These data are collected by the Data Controller following the addition on the Site by the data subject at the time of registration of an account and/or at the time of purchase on the Site and will be processed for the purposes and in the manner described in this policy.

Personal and contact data may also be voluntarily communicated by the user during a conversation activated by the user using the “Chat” icon. It should be noted that the Chat is managed independently by the company Guuru (terms, conditions and privacy policy are available on the same communication screen). The content of the conversation and any personal data communicated by users will therefore be communicated by Guuru to Rizoma and will be processed by the latter as the autonomous owner of the same, in order to follow up on any specific requests from the user (e.g. requests for contacts for information on products or purchases), in the manner and for the purposes indicated in this policy.


In some sections of the Site, in relation to specific services, some of the Data listed above are requested, which will be processed by the Data Controller for the purposes and legal bases indicated below.

  • For the execution of pre-contractual measures and/or a contract to which you are a party:
    • for the purpose of registering a user on the website (“Account”);
    • for the management and technical administration of the website;
    • to proceed with the purchase of Rizoma products;
    • to be able to use the services reserved for holders of a personal Account on the Site, such as the selection of products to be included in the wishlist, the display of previous purchases, use of customer service also through the “livechat” channel on the Site, etc.;
    • to correctly receive and process requests for information and contact received.
    • For the management of the shipment and delivery of the products ordered;
  • Based on a legitimate interest of the Data Controller (soft spam pursuant to art. 130 paragraph 4 of Legislative Decree 196/2003 as updated by Legislative Decree 101/2018 – Code regarding the protection of personal data), for the promotion by e-mail of goods or services similar to those of the sale, without prejudice to the possibility of objecting at any time.

  • Furthermore, subject to your prior, optional and revocable consentat any time, the personal data collected may be processed for further purposes, and in particular for:
    • Marketing: to send you communications of initiatives, commercial offers also on digital media, questionnaires and market research of the Data Controller through digital channels (for example by email);

In any case, your personal data may be processed, where necessary, also for the following purposes:

  • For the need to fulfil legal obligations, and in particular to fulfil obligations provided for by regulations and applicable national and supranational legislation (tax, administrative obligations, etc.);
  • Based on a legitimate interest (judicial protection), to ascertain, exercise or defend the rights of the Data Controller in court and/or out of court.


  • For the entire duration of the contract and, after termination, for the ordinary limitation period of 10 years, for processing based on the execution of pre-contractual measures and/or a contract to which the data subject is a party;
  • Until the exercise of its right to opt-out for the promotional activity by e-mail of services similar to those of the sale, based on the legitimate interest of the Data Controller (soft spam);
  • The marketing consent granted by customers who have made a purchase of products on the Site will be kept for a period of 4 years, corresponding to the average life cycle of the Rizoma products or vehicles on which they will be installed and, therefore, to the average period of interest expected for new Rizoma products. In any case, the possibility remains for the data subject to renew this consent within the term of this period and, in any case, his/her right to revoke the consent at any time.
  • The data of users who have registered their Account without proceeding with the purchase with the same credentials will be kept until the cancellation of the account; the marketing consent granted by these users will be kept for a period of 2 years, without prejudice to the possibility for the data subject to renew the consent within the term of this period and, in any case, his right to revoke the consent at any time.
  • For the duration provided for by law (10 years for administrative-accounting obligations) for the processing of compliance with legal obligations;
  • In the case of judicial litigation, for the entire duration of the same, until the expiry of the terms of applicability of the appeal actions, for the treatment of judicial protection of the Data Controller on the basis of its legitimate interest. 
  • For a period of 7 days for the processing of contact data voluntarily communicated by the user for requests for information through the chat available on the Site.

The personal data in question, once the storage periods indicated above have expired, will be destroyed, deleted or made anonymous in accordance with the technical deletion and backup procedures and with the accountability needs of the Data Controller.


The provision of the Data processed for the purposes of the execution of pre-contractual measures and/or of a contract and the fulfilment of legal obligations is necessary for the stipulation of the various contractual relationships, the execution of the orders and services requested and the fulfilment of legal obligations.

Therefore, any refusal by the data subject will make it impossible for the Data Controller to provide the requested service.

In relation to any optional processing, the provision of data is completely optional and the data subject may express his/her right to opt-out at any time. Optional processing means the processing of data not indicated on the Site as mandatory with the affixing of an asterisk (*), of data voluntarily communicated through the Chat and processing for marketing purposes based on the free and informed consent of the data subject.

With regard to browsing data, see Cookie Policy which can be accessed from the link in the sidebar at the bottom of the page.


The Data may be known and processed by employees of the company departments responsible for the pursuit of the purposes indicated above, who have been expressly authorised to process them and who have received adequate operating instructions.

Furthermore, the Data may be processed by external subjects operating as independent data controllers such as, by way of example, supervisory and control bodies, Public Authorities that expressly request it for administrative or institutional purposes and, in general, all subjects entitled by current national and European legislation to request such data.

The Data may also be processed, on behalf of the Company, by external parties qualifying as data processors (pursuant to art. 28 of the GDPR). These subjects, by way of example, can be:

  • companies that carry out the management and/or maintenance service of the Company’s website;
