For purely organisational and functional requirements, we have appointed certain service
providers to manage the Website as external personal data processors. This is strictly for
purposes related and connected to the services provided by the Website, including the sale
of products. More detailed information is available in the policy statements on the Website,
and a complete list of external data processors appointed by Geox may be obtained by
2. Types of Personal Data Processed
Registration is not required in order to access the Website. However, there are sections of
the Website that require registration or the use of a username and password (e.g., to sign
up for the Geox Single Digital Profile, or to complete the online purchasing process), or
services for which you need to provide your details (e.g. your personal data may be
requested to access newsletter services, to contact us, etc.).
Data relating to the connection and navigation within the Website (such as the URI-Uniform
Resource Identifiers of the resources requested, time of the request, method used in
submitting the request to the server, size of the file obtained in response, the numeric
code indicating the status of the response provided by the server (successful, error, etc.)
and other parameters regarding the user’s operating system and IT environment) are collected
only for the purpose of extracting anonymous statistical information on the use of the
Website and to check its correct operation. Such data is immediately deleted following the
processing. The data may be used to ascertain liability in the event of possible computer
crimes that harm the Website: excluding such cases, the data shall be deleted once the time
needed to provide the services illustrated on the Website has passed.
With reference to data relating to navigation within the Website, see also point 7 below
concerning the Profiling Tools used by the Website.
3. Optional provision of personal data

postal address, credit/debit card data or and telephone number - is required to purchase
products online); failure to provide such data may therefore prevent Geox from allowing you

services and the purchase of products online. The purposes for which the data are used are
detailed in the specific policy statements provided by the Website whenever there is data
collection. We would ask that you read the policy statements which in each case explain the
characteristics of the data processing that will be performed (e.g. for registration for the
newsletter service, to access your profile, for Geox products sold online). Your data shall
be processed in full compliance with privacy

processed, the recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed,
any transfer of the data outside the European Union, the period of storage of the
data, the existence of automated decision-making (including profiling), as well as

of the Regulation).
- Right to rectification: the data subject may request the rectification or
updating of inaccurate data or, taking into account the purposes of the processing,
the supplementation of incomplete personal data (Article 16 of the Regulation).

keeping accounting records or for security purposes) or for the verification,
exercise or defence of a right in legal proceedings (Article 17 of the Regulation).

marketing purposes, including profiling related to such direct marketing (Article 21
of the Regulation).
- Right to not be subject to automated decision-making, including profiling:
(where applicable) the data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a
