In accordance with the needs associated with accessing the various sections of the Lavazza Websites (and without prejudice to the individual initiatives that involve the provision of specific Personal Data, for which specific privacy notices will be published on a case-to-case basis), the purposes of the processing of your Personal Data and the related legal grounds are indicated below:

  • Registration to the Website: the procedure of registering to our Website, through the creation of an account or the use of an already-existing social network account, is aimed at allowing you to use the Website as a "Registered User" and to access a series of exclusive services offered through it. The provision of data is optional. The legal basis for processing is the implementation of pre-contractual measures to which the data subject is party. Access via the use of social networks may involve accessing personal data other than the data provided at the time of registration to our portal, on the basis of the authorisations you have provided to these social networks and which are to be referred to in relation to the policies on the management of your privacy.

  • Purchase of products: by using our Website you may purchase Lavazza products as a Registered User (and in this case you do not need to re-enter your Personal Data every time you purchase a product) and as a Non-Registered User (re-entering the required data each time in order to complete a purchase). Both these cases require the processing of your Personal Data.  Your Personal Data will be processed in order to manage orders and payments, and to fulfil consequent administrative and accounting obligations, as well as to contact you for any information regarding your purchases (for example, information on the status of your orders). The provision of personal data is optional, but necessary to complete the purchase order.  The legal basis for the processing is the performance of the Contract to which the data subject is party.

  • Management of requests: the Personal Data will be collected in order to manage and answer requests about the products and initiatives of the various brands of the Lavazza Group. The legal basis for this processing is the implementation of pre-contractual measures to which the data subject is party.  

Other purposes: 

  • Marketing: Subject to your specific consent, we may process your Personal Data in order to send you commercial communications, as well as to invite you to take part in our promotional initiatives, to participate in our events and to register for our newsletter. The legal basis of this processing is the Consent of the Data Subject, which can be withdrawn at any time.

  • Participation in competitions and give-aways: we may process your Personal Data so that you can participate in competitions and give-aways. The legal basis for this processing is the implementation of pre-contractual measures to which the data subject is party.

  • Profiling: subject to your specific consent, we may process your Personal Data for profiling purposes, namely for analysing or predicting your tastes, potential habits and consumer choices, so that we can offer you products, services, promotions and customised commercial communications. The legal basis of this processing is the consent of the Data Subject, which can be withdrawn at any time.  Profiling may also be performed through the use of first-party and third-party cookies.  We therefore invite you to read our Cookie Policy. This processing may be carried out under the condition that you provide your specific and optional additional consent.

  • Analysis purposes: the Personal Data you have provided when interacting with the Lavazza world and the information regarding this interaction will be collected in our database and will be used to anonymously analyse and improve the services we offer, to assess the efficiency of the activities and initiatives promoted by Lavazza and to conduct statistical analysis on the composition of the database. The legal basis of the processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller.
