ART. 3 – CONDITIONS OF MEMBERSHIP AND PARTICIPATION FOR MEMBERS
3.1 All natural persons of at least 14 years of age who are paying passengers on flights with Alitalia and/or with Partner Airlines and/or who have bought goods and services from the Promoters and/or Partners, are eligible to participate in the Program. The validity of the registration is subject to the provision of a postal address (which will also be considered by the Promoters as the Member's place of residence solely for the purposes of participation in targeted promotional initiatives) to which the MilleMiglia Card will be sent, and the provision of a personal email address, to which the MilleMiglia Program correspondence will be sent. Registration for the Program by dependent minors is subject to the express approval of their parents or those with parental authority and is subject to their responsibility.
3.2 To join the Program, you must register on the website www.alitalia.com or contact the Customer Center or through the other channels communicated by the Promoters from time to time. Registration for the MilleMiglia Program requires that these Regulations have been read and accepted in full. With regard to membership of one of the Co-branded Cards, which require registration in the Program, customers may register for the Program by filling out a special form containing personal details to be sent to the Promoters or financial Partners who promote the Card.
3.3 Each registration is made under the name of a single Member and requires the Member to provide his or her own personal information and to notify any changes thereof via the website or by contacting the Customer Center. Members ensure the accuracy of all information provided to the Promoters and are solely responsible for it. It is not possible to register more than one person under the same personal numerical code or the same account. If multiple codes or accounts are registered to the same Member, the Promoters will, prior information to the Member, transfer the balance of the Miles earned to a single account and close the other accounts. In such a case, if Miles relating to the same flight/service have been credited to multiple accounts in the name of the same Member, they will be credited exclusively to one valid account.
3.4 Upon registration, Members are provided with a personal numerical code (the MilleMiglia Code), which shall be provided whilst booking flights and checking in at the airport for the relevant number of Miles to be credited. The personal numerical code identifying each Member corresponds to an account to which earned Miles will be credited: (i) resulting from flights actually taken with Alitalia (i.e. "flown"), using paid air tickets (not Award Tickets) (ii) resulting from flights actually taken with Partner Airlines using paid air tickets (not Award Tickets), (iii) resulting from the use of goods and/or services provided by Promoters, and (iv) from the purchase of products and the use of goods and/or services provided by other Partners, in accordance with the terms and conditions set out on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
3.5 Furthermore Members will receive, via their own email address, the PIN needed to access the services, as well as the specific instructions for doing so. Members bear sole responsibility for the confidentiality of their own PIN and Promoters will not be liable in any way for its fraudulent use.
3.6 Members will be provided with a MilleMiglia Card bearing their personal data and MilleMiglia Code after their first flight with Alitalia and/or Partner Airlines, and/or other activity they carry out with Commercial Partners. The MilleMiglia Card bears the Member's name and may only be used by its holder. The Card remains the property of the Promoters and must be returned if requested by them or if the Member withdraws from the Program.
3.7 In the event that the MilleMiglia Card is lost, stolen or damaged, the Member must notify the Customer Center promptly. The Customer Center may then re-issue the card or close the corresponding account and open a new account to which all Miles earned will be transferred. In such an event, the Member will receive a new code, a new MilleMiglia Card and a new PIN. However, the Promoters will not be responsible for any fraudulent use of the lost or stolen MilleMiglia Card. If they lose their PIN, Members may have it sent again to the email address in their profile, using the special online request function, available on the website www.alitalia.com. To this end, Members should always keep their personal profile and email address up to date. For security reasons, once a PIN has been retrieved, Members should change their PIN using the information update function provided on the website www.alitalia.com. If Members cannot use this function or do not receive the PIN requested, they may contact the Customer Center, which will provide the necessary assistance.
3.8 Each Member's accounts is personal and in their name, meaning that Members cannot have or use Miles earned by any other person, including any heirs.
3.9 The Promoters reserve the right to offer promotional initiatives to specific groups of customers. By participating in such promotional initiatives, Customers may receive a number of benefits in addition to those provided for by the Program.
3.10 Program Members may also subscribe to the "Social Login" service, which gives them access to all MilleMiglia services using the access credentials of their favorite social network. The personal data provided when subscribing to the service is collected and recorded by the Promoters in paper, electronic and/or computer and/or telematic formats and is protected and processed via appropriate means for ensuring security and confidentiality in accordance with the provisions of Italian Legislative Decree no. 196 of June 30, 2003 on personal data protection.
3.11 The Promoters reserve the right to deny Program participation to those who do not meet the requirements set out in these Regulations or to exclude them from the Program if failure to meet the above-mentioned requirements is subsequently revealed. If registration for the Program or participation in it should contravene the applicable provisions of the Regulations, the Promoters reserve the right to revoke the Member's registration and to cancel the Miles earned that have yet to be redeemed at the time the revocation is communicated, as well as to void any Rewards previously obtained but not yet redeemed.
3.12 Members who were registered for previous MilleMiglia Programs shall continue by rights to be registered for the new Program, without prejudice to their right to request cancellation. Members may leave the Program at any time prior to the Program's expiration. In such a case, Members will be able to use the Miles earned to that point to claim a Reward; any residual Miles will be canceled at the time of withdrawal. Members must request withdrawal from the Program in writing, specifying their personal numerical code and attaching a copy of a valid, countersigned document, sending it to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
ART. 4 – MILES FOR MEMBERS
4.1 Miles are the basic calculation unit used by the Promoters for the Program. Members earn Miles on the Airline's flights and on those of the Program Partner Airlines, as well as when purchasing the goods and services of Promoters and Commercial Partners. Members earn Miles on all flights operated by SkyTeam Airline carriers, including code-sharing flights, and on Alitalia code-sharing flights with other Partner Airlines. Code-sharing flights operated by Alitalia and/or other Partner Airlines in association with airlines that are not Program Partners do not entitle Members to earn Miles.
4.2 The number of Miles earned for flights is calculated based on the IATA TPM (Ticketed Point Mileage) distance or on the minimum number of Miles envisaged by the Program between the flight's departure and destination airports and on the booking class used and the pre-selected fare type, which indicates the pre-selected rate. For multi-leg flights, Miles are credited in relation to individual legs. The number of Miles credited is specified in the miles earning tables available on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications, which are in force at the time the ticket for each leg is used. The content of these tables is only valid for the period specified on the website www.alitalia.com. The services provided and the products offered by Partners that are eligible for Miles are specified on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
4.3 To have Miles credited automatically, Members must quote their personal numerical code when booking flights and must show their MilleMiglia Card when checking in at the airport. It may not be possible to credit Miles automatically at some airports. If Miles are not credited automatically, Members are entitled to a Crediting of Missing Miles by submitting a request within four (4) months of taking the flight to which the Miles refer, as specified on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. If the services or products of a Commercial Partner are used, Members must quote their personal numerical code when booking the service or purchasing the product. If Miles are not credited for a service or product offered by a Partner, it will be necessary to contact the Partner's Customer Center directly.
4.4 In the event that a Member is also registered with another Partner Airline's loyalty program and flies with one of those Airlines, he will not be able to have duplicate Miles credited to the account of that Program as well as to the account of this Program. If the Promoters establish that a Member has fraudulently obtained duplicate Miles, they reserve the right to void the unduly credited Miles, to exclude the Member from the Program, to void any Rewards obtained previously that have not yet been used and to claim for any damages.
4.5 In the event that a Member is registered with another Partner Airline's loyalty program and has earned Miles on the MilleMiglia Program, under no circumstances may he proceed in transferring Miles for credit with the account of the Partner Airline and/or vice versa.
4.6 Any tickets purchased but not used are not eligible for Miles. Miles due for using air transport services are credited to the Member's account only after the flights have been actually taken.
4.7 Any flights purchased by Members but used by others are not eligible for Miles.
4.8 The purchase and transfer of Miles between different accounts is not permitted other than as expressly provided for in these Regulations and stated on the website and/or in the Program Communications.
4.9 The Promoters reserve the right to undertake promotional initiatives or enter into specific agreements through which Miles may be awarded on different grounds and in addition to those provided for in these Regulations. Any such initiatives will be communicated through the website www.alitalia.com and/or through the Program Communications.
4.10 Miles obtained from using Commercial Partner services or products are governed by the rules communicated by these Partners, which are usually posted on their websites (see the links in Appendix A).
4.11 Miles may not be earned with flights taken using Award Tickets.
4.12 Miles may not be earned on some special fares and/or booking classes on the Airline's flights and/or Promoters' services and products and/or Partner services or products with particularly discounted rates/prices. The Promoters do, however, reserve the right to award Miles for these special rates/prices during specific promotional campaigns, of which Members will be suitably notified.
4.13 Miles may not be earned and the benefits of Exclusive Club membership may not be received from flights flown free of charge or with discounts of over 40% on the applicable fare (excluding taxes and supplements) and/or identified by discount codes ID and AD. Any Miles credited from these flights will be canceled.
4.14 Miles will not be credited for flights taken with airlines that are not Program Partners, even if originally booked through the Airline or for a ticket issued for the Airline. However, if one of the Airline's flights is canceled within 36 (thirty-six) hours of departure and the flight is rebooked with an airline that is not a Program Partner, the Member will still be entitled to earn Miles for that flight.
4.15 Charter flights are not eligible for Miles.
4.16 Program Partners are the only parties responsible for the conditions for awarding Miles following the use of their services or the purchase of their products and the related credit. Members who wish to use Partner services or products are required to check current applicable conditions with the Partners. The Promoters assume no liability for services or products offered by its Partners. Any related complaints must be addressed directly to the Partners.
4.17 Miles may not be traded by Members nor converted into cash. The brokering of the purchase or sale of Miles, the transfer of Miles and the purchase of Miles are also forbidden, except where expressly provided for in the Program regulations published on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. In this regard, to enable Members to reach the number of Miles needed to obtain Program Rewards, Members who have duly registered for the Program may buy, give or transfer Miles for themselves or for other registered Members by going to the MilleMiglia section of the website www.alitalia.com, where they will have access to the portal of Points International Ltd.
4.18 Members may not sell or trade their Miles in any way, except where expressly provided for in these Regulations and stated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. Similarly, Members may not sell or trade the advantages and benefits obtained through the Program, except where expressly provided for in these Regulations and stated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
4.19 Miles earned by Members are detailed on their statements, which may be viewed on the website www.alitalia.com. Members are responsible for checking their own statements and any complaints will be accepted only if they refer to activities in the month prior to the date of the complaint. The statement is considered to have been approved one month after the last activity. In any event, the Promoters reserve the right to not award or to cancel Miles that are mistakenly credited at any time.
4.20 In the event of a free upgrade to a higher class, awarded by the Airline or one of the Partner Airlines for operational reasons, Members will be credited for the Miles according to the travel class shown on the ticket rather than the class actually flown.
4.21 After a 24 (twenty-four) month period, during which the Member has not carried out any activities that earn Miles, the Miles will be considered expired and the Promoters will cancel them from the Member's account. Members are responsible for checking the expiration date of their own Miles. The Promoters are not required to communicate the cancellation of Miles pursuant to the above provisions.
4.22 If after five years from the date when the account was opened there is no activity registered to the Member's card, the Promoters reserve the right to cancel the Member's account. The Member will have the right to re-register with the MilleMiglia Program at any time.
4.23 This rewards Program enables Miles to be earned until December 31, 2017. Rewards may be claimed by Members until January 31, 2018 and will be awarded to the rightful owner at the same time, with the exception of any Rewards that must be delivered to the Member's home, in which case the regulations specified on the pages relating to such initiatives on the websites www.alitalia.com and millemigliagallery.com will apply.
ART. 5 – MILES EARNED FOR FLIGHTS TAKEN BY MEMBERS' CHILDREN
5.1 Members with children between 2 and 13 years of age may earn Miles on their own account for Alitalia flights flown by their children.
5.2 Each child between 2 and 13 years of age may be linked to the MilleMiglia Code of one parent only, with the prior agreement and authorization of the other parent.
5.3 Each Member may also, as a parent, have more than one child linked to their account.
5.4 To activate this initiative, the parent must fill out the form on the website www.alitalia.com. It can take up to thirty (30) days to assign the child's identification code and activate the promotional initiative in the system while the necessary checks are carried out. Where the email address provided by the Member at the time of registration with the initiative is different from the address held in the Member database, the latest email address provided will replace the previous address. The new address will be used for all future Promoter communications.
5.5 The Miles that the child earns for each single flight will only be credited to the account of the parent (Member) that the child is linked with, and only for flights taken after the identification code assigned to the child has been provided, and according to the MilleMiglia Program regulations in force at the time of the flight, up to a maximum of 100% of the Miles flown (= base Miles), even if the fare has a higher mileage value. Miles may not be earned for flights taken by children with promotional fares that would have a mileage value of up to 100 Miles.
5.6 Miles earned with flights taken by children are never Qualifying Miles that may be used to join or renew membership of the Exclusive Clubs.
5.7 Parents may not earn promotional Miles on flights flown by the child. The child's flight activities are not included in any promotional initiative proposed or launched by the MilleMiglia Program and/or by the Promoters unless expressly specified otherwise.
5.8 Miles are credited to the parent's account whether the child flies unaccompanied, with the parent or with a third party. If Miles are not credited, a Crediting of Missing Miles may be requested, as provided for in these Regulations.
5.9 Once the child turns 14 years of age, the link with the parent's MilleMiglia account will automatically expire. For the first activity, the parent or person with parental authority may register the child on the Program by providing the child's identification code. From then on, the child's identification code will become his or her own MilleMiglia Code and Miles will be credited directly to his or her account.
5.10 For anyone under 18 years old, registering for the MilleMiglia Program and providing personal data is subject to the consent and responsibility of parents or those with the relevant authority.
5.11 The Promoters decline all responsibility for any false information provided by Members, punishable pursuant to Articles 483, 495, and 496 of the Italian Penal Code and applicable laws.
ART. 6 – EXCLUSIVE CLUBS FOR MEMBERS
6.1 Achieving membership of and participating in the Exclusive Clubs is reserved to Members who are natural persons and not to Companies. Members who earn the required number of Qualifying Miles or Qualifying Flights specified on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications are automatically registered for the Ulisse Club, the Freccia Alata Club or the Freccia Alata Plus Club, free of charge. Qualifying Miles may be obtained from January 1 to December 31 of each year of the Program by taking flights with the Airline or SkyTeam Airlines or other Partner companies, where expressly indicated. Exclusive Club membership involves the Promoters granting the benefits and advantages specified on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. The Promoters reserve the right to modify these benefits and advantages at their sole discretion for the duration of the Rewards program, duly notifying Members of this with sufficient notice. The Promoters reserve the right to modify and/or revoke the status of "Freccia Alata Plus Per Sempre" Member for both new and existing Members, giving Members at least six months' notice.

6.3 The Qualifying Miles needed to access the Exclusive Clubs simply represent the reference threshold for entry to the Club, which does not affect the option to use the Miles earned for claiming Rewards as the Qualifying Miles are not deducted from the Member's account at the time of access to the Exclusive Club, unless otherwise stated in relation to specific promotional initiatives.
6.4 Member status of the Ulisse, Freccia Alata or Freccia Alata Plus Clubs is granted from the beginning of the month following the acknowledgment of the necessary Mile threshold being reached in the Program management systems.

The validity of the registration is subject to communication of the Company’s information (VAT number or other equivalent identification number, postal address and email address for Program correspondence, full name and date of birth of the Administrator).
7.2 The Administrator is the Company's contact person, who must be specified during the registration stage. The Administrator will manage the Company's MilleMiglia Program account.
7.3 To join BusinessConnect, you must register via the website www.alitalia.com via the dedicated page or use other channels communicated by the Promoters from time to time. Registration for the Program requires that these Regulations have been read and accepted.
7.4 Following registration, the Company will be given two numerical codes: a Company Code to earn Miles with Alitalia and the Partners and a MilleMiglia BusinessConnect Code to manage the Miles, earn Miles with Commercial Partners and claim Rewards. To earn Miles for flights taken with Alitalia and the Partners, the Company Code must be provided when booking and purchasing the flight. The MilleMiglia BusinessConnect Code identifying each Company corresponds to an account to which earned Miles will be credited from flights purchased and taken with Alitalia or Partners (i.e. "flown") using paid air tickets, in accordance with the terms and conditions stated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
7.5 The Administrator, specified during the registration stage as the Company's representative, will also be sent, via the email address provided, the PIN needed to access the dedicated services, as well as the specific instructions for doing so.

7.6 If the PIN is lost, the Administrator may recover it using the relevant function on the website www.alitalia.com. The Administrator should keep the Company's email address up to date at all times for this purpose. For security reasons, when the PIN has been recovered, the Administrator should change it using the relevant information update function on the website www.alitalia.com.

7.7 Each registration is made under the name of a single Company and requires the Company to provide its data and to notify any changes thereof by contacting the BusinessConnect Customer Center. The Company ensures the accuracy of all information provided to the Promoters and is solely responsible for it. It is not possible to register several Companies under the same MilleMiglia BusinessConnect Code or the same account. If multiple codes or accounts are registered to the same Company, the Promoters will close the account with the fewest Miles earned.
7.8 The Promoters reserve the right to deny Program participation to Companies that do not meet the requirements set out in these Regulations at the time of registration or to exclude them from the Program, canceling Miles earned that have yet to be redeemed at the time the revocation is communicated, as well as to void any Rewards previously obtained but not yet redeemed, if failure to meet the above-mentioned requirements is subsequently revealed following checks by the Promoters. Such checks, to ensure compliance with these Regulations and uncover any fraud, may be made at any time and without informing the Administrator in advance.
ART 8 – MILES FOR COMPANIES
8.1 Miles are the basic unit of calculation used by the Promoters for BusinessConnect. Companies earn Miles by buying Alitalia tickets (055 stock tickets) and taking flights with Alitalia or Partners, as indicated from time to time on the website www.alitalia.com, in the dedicated Companies section and/or in the Program Communications.
8.2 The number of Miles earned by a Company for all flight activity is calculated using a multiplier of 7 Miles for each euro spent and flown, excluding taxes ("taxes" refers to airport and security taxes, service fees as well as VAT if applicable). The Promoters reserve the right to communicate improved promotions at specific periods of the year. The calculation is carried out based on individual flights bought by the Company and flown by the holder or by the Company's employees/associates, provided that the Company Code is provided when the flight is booked and purchased. Miles earned are calculated on the basis of the amount spent, divided into each individual leg flown with Alitalia or with Partners, applying the valid multiplier at the time of the flight. For all tickets bought in a currency other than the euro, the official exchange rate used by the Airline will apply.
8.3 If the Company Code is not provided at the time of booking, Miles will not be earned and the Company will not be entitled to Crediting of Missing Miles, unless stated otherwise in the Program regulations, published on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
8.4 Miles may not be earned on tickets bought by the Company and not used. Miles earned for using air transport services are credited to the Company’s account only after the flights are taken, according to the timings and conditions specified on the website www.alitalia.com and/or the Program Communications.
8.5 In addition, Miles may not be earned on the following: flights taken with award tickets, charter flights, flights with dedicated group fares, flights flown free of charge or with discounts of over 40% on the applicable fare (excluding taxes and supplements) and/or identified by discount codes ID and AD. Any Miles credited from these flights will be canceled.
8.6 Miles may not be earned on some special fares and/or booking classes on the Airline's flights and/or Promoters' and/or Partners' services and products with particularly discounted rates/prices. The Promoters do, however, reserve the right to award Miles for these special rates/prices during specific promotional campaigns, of which Companies will be suitably notified.
8.7 If the services or products of a Commercial Partner are used, the Company must quote its MilleMiglia BusinessConnect Code when booking the service or purchasing the product. If Miles are not credited for a service or product offered by a Partner, it will be necessary to contact the Partner's Customer Center directly.

ART. 9 – REWARDS
Miles earned through the Program may be used by Members and Companies to claim the Rewards indicated below.
A – STANDARD AWARD TICKET
9.1 The only person entitled to claim Rewards is the Member, for natural persons, and the Administrator, for Companies. Members (for Companies, the Administrator) may request the Standard Award Ticket (Award Ticket) on Airline flights or flights operated by Program Partner Airlines. Award Tickets are not provided on code-share flights operated by Airlines that are not Program Partners. Any other information relating to eligible flights and other Rewards is provided on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. Award Tickets may be requested for Economy and Business classes.
9.2 Award Tickets are valid for twelve (12) months from the date of issue, which cannot be extended under any circumstances.
9.3 Award Tickets may be obtained:
1) By using Miles earned and a payment contribution (corresponding to the value of taxes and supplements), as specified on the website www.alitalia.com.
2) By using Miles alone for the entire sum of the value of the Reward (corresponding to the rate, taxes and supplements) as specified on the website www.alitalia.com.
9.4 Destinations for which and procedures through which Award Tickets may be claimed and the number of Miles needed for the value of the fare for each destination and each service class are shown in the relevant Reward tables, which may be viewed on the website www.alitalia.com (Alitalia Rewards table and Multicarrier Rewards table).
9.5 The payment contribution or number of Miles needed for the value of Award Ticket taxes and supplements vary depending on when the ticket was issued, the pre-selected departure and destination airports and the operating carrier. These are provided online when requesting Award Tickets on the website www.alitalia.com or through MilleMiglia Customer Services (or through the BusinessConnect Customer Center for Companies).
9.6 Award Tickets may be awarded to Members or to other people specified by Members (for Companies, people specified by the Administrator). Award Tickets may not be traded or sold.
9.7 After earning the required number of Miles, Members (for Companies, the Administrator) may book an Award Ticket by visiting the MilleMiglia section of the website www.alitalia.com or by contacting the Customer Center (for Companies, the BusinessConnect Customer Center), specifying that the booking relates to a Reward. Rewards-related bookings cannot be made through the Airline's travel agencies or ticket desk or through third-party travel agencies.
9.8 Bookings will be automatically canceled if the Award Ticket is not issued within the time limit specified at the time of booking.
9.9 Award Tickets requested by telephone from the Customer Center (or the BusinessConnect Customer Center for Companies) will be sent electronically. Any payment contribution must be paid by credit card. Alternatively, Members (for Companies, the Administrator) may collect Award Tickets by going to an Airline ticket office after booking them through the Customer Center (or through the BusinessConnect Customer Center for Companies). In such a case, the payment contribution may also be paid in cash and payment of an issuing fee may be required.
9.10 In the event that the applicant is not the holder of the MilleMiglia account in question, upon issue of the Award Ticket, a copy of the travel documents will be sent to the email address provided in the Member account holder's profile (for Companies, to the Administrator's email address) to confirm that he or she is willing to issue an Award Ticket to a beneficiary, as well as to the address indicated by the beneficiary. Where no email address is available in the Member's or the Company's account profile, it will not be possible to issue Rewards to beneficiaries other than the Member account holder (for Companies, other than the Administrator).
9.11 In the event that the Award Ticket is issued to a beneficiary or customer other than the MilleMiglia account holder, at the time of check-in the beneficiary must present the necessary documentation for the Award Ticket: travel document, a personal identification document, a written proxy signed by the Member account holder (or by the Administrator for Companies), and photocopies of the Member account holder's (for Companies, the Administrator's) identification document and MilleMiglia Card.
9.12 Seats on board Airline flights that are reserved for Award Ticket beneficiaries are limited and availability of Rewards may vary depending on dates, seasons and destinations. The Promoters guarantee that a minimum of two (2) Reward seats will be available once the sale of seats on the flight commences until all seats are sold. Availability of Reward seats on Partner Airline flights is the responsibility of the Partner Airline and not the Promoters.
9.13 For each Award Ticket, a maximum of two (2) layovers (transits) at intermediate airports between the points of origin and destination are permitted. Requested stops (stopovers) are not permitted. In the event of a stopover, two different Award Tickets must be issued.

9.14 Beneficiaries of specific fare discounts (e.g. minors, students, pensioners, etc.) are not entitled to any reduction of the number of Miles required for Award Tickets.
9.15 Under no circumstances will Miles spent on Award Tickets be credited back to a Member's or Company's account, unless the Award Ticket is not used, either in full or in part, due to causes that are attributable to Alitalia and without prejudice to the exceptions indicated on the website www.alitalia.com. In any case where the Award Ticket is not used, or is partially used, Members (for Companies, the Administrator) may request that the Miles used for the value of taxes and supplements or payment contributions be credited back to them.
9.16 The Promoters reserve the right to issue promotional Award Tickets with a limited validity of less than twelve (12) months. Expired Award Tickets cannot be replaced or changed.
9.17 Changes to Award Tickets (in terms of date/time, destination, beneficiary and/or itinerary and/or carrier) may be made, as long as they occur within the Reward's period of validity (if the beneficiary changes, the previously assigned seat cannot be guaranteed). Changes shall be made in return for a cash fee or a deduction in Miles (the relevant amount can be found on the website www.alitalia.com) if required by the type of Reward. If a change in itinerary results in residual Miles, these will be lost and will under no circumstances be refunded to the Member (or Company). Any changes must be made by the MilleMiglia Customer Center (or by the BusinessConnect Customer Center for Companies); any changes made by other offices of the Promoters, the Airline's or third-party travel agencies or other Airlines are not permitted.
9.18 Changes to itineraries and/or the beneficiary of a partially used travel document can only be made by paying a fee, as specified on the website www.alitalia.com, which will require the reimbursement of Miles from the return flight(s) that are not used and the issue of a new corresponding one-way Reward based on the applicable Rewards table.
9.19 Rewards may not be used on Airlines other than those specified on the ticket.
9.20 No changes to the beneficiary may be made and no reimbursement is permitted in the case of an Award Ticket being issued and the subsequent death of the MilleMiglia Member holding it.
9.21 The current Alitalia Conditions of Carriage for Passengers and Baggage apply to the rules on carrier liability in relation to flights operated for the redemption of Rewards (available on the website www.alitalia.com).
9.22 The approximate value of individual Rewards is determined based on air fares in effect at the time the Rewards are issued.
B – SERVICE CLASS UPGRADES
9.23 As a Reward, Members (for Companies, the Administrator) may also request a travel class upgrade for tickets purchased for flights (individual legs) operated by the Airline. However, the upgrade depends on the actual availability of Reward seats on board in the superior class. These seats are limited in number. The procedures and the booking classes that allow for an upgrade and the mileage necessary to obtain an upgrade are specified on the relevant pages of the website www.alitalia.com and in the Program Communications. Upgrade requests can only be made once a ticket has been issued and within the specified time frame and according to the applicable procedure. The beneficiary of an upgrade may be the Member and/or a person holding a paid ticket indicated by the Member (or a person indicated by the Administrator). Waiting-list upgrades are not permitted. Miles used for upgrades are non-refundable and no changes to the itinerary and/or date and/or beneficiary are permitted for upgrades that have already been confirmed. Miles credited for flights on which an upgrade was obtained correspond to the amount awarded for that flight in Economy class. The conditions of the original ticket remain valid in the event of an upgrade.
C – CHARITY
9.24 Members (or Companies) may use Miles earned to make donations to non-profit and charitable organizations by following the instructions on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. Donated Miles are non-refundable and will not be credited back to the Member's or Company's account or be available for reuse by the Member or Company under any circumstances. The times and procedures for using this Reward are specified on the website www.alitalia.com and should be checked by Members (or by the Administrator).

The aforementioned companies have an equal interest in relation to the Program's objectives and equal decision-making authority on management of the same.

12.3 All personal data supplied at the time of registration and subsequently shall be processed by the Holders in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations on personal data protection and in particular in accordance with the Privacy Code.
12.4 Personal data must be processed in order to manage Members' participation in the Program, to allocate any Rewards, as well as other benefits and related services associated with their participation in the Program and their Cardholder status, in accordance with these Regulations. The Holders will also process particular data categories that Members supply when registering for the Program on the website www.alitalia.com. This information relates to meal preferences and assigned seats on flights operated by Alitalia and Partners. This information is useful for offering Program Members a more personalized service. By selecting their preferred options and registering for the Program on the website www.alitalia.com, Members give their consent for the Holders to use any data that may disclose aspects such as their health status, potential religious affiliation and possible membership of a particular ethnic group (e.g. when Members choose a diabetic meal or a kosher menu). This data will only be used to provide Members with personalized service. Data may occasionally be disclosed to third-party service providers (such as check-in operators other than Alitalia) for the aforementioned purposes only. The disclosure of such data is optional and any failure to supply it will have no consequences in relation to Members' registration for and participation in the Program.
12.5 The correct performance of the above-mentioned data processing activities implies that Members' personal data may be accessed by the Holders' sales staff and by third-party service providers in the context of the Program (for example, direct marketing companies and market analysts, Customer Centers, standardization companies, IT service providers or customer care service providers) for purposes strictly related to and instrumental in managing the Program and, subject to Members' prior consent, for purposes of commercial communications. The Holder's sales staff shall act as data supervisors for the Holders, whereas the latter companies shall act as processors of such data. A list of third-party companies providing services associated with the Program, and responsible for processing Members' personal data, is available from the Holders' offices. The Holders shall ensure that the personal data in question is processed in accordance with the principles of necessity, lawfulness, accuracy, quality of data and proportionality and, in any case, ensuring data confidentiality. Data will be processed electronically, manually or in paper form, and will consist of the comparison, classification and calculation of the data, as well as of its sorting and classification into lists, all in accordance with the minimum security requirements to protect the confidentiality of the subject to which the data refers and to avoid the risk of it being accessed by unauthorized third parties. All data, grouped into categories and/or clusters in anonymous form, may be used in the Holders' statistical analyses to check the marketing preferences of its customers. The Holders also ensure that any personal data relating to Program Members is used exclusively for purposes related to participation in the Program and for sending organizational information to Members regarding their Membership status and possible expiration of benefits associated with the Program. All data provided by Members at registration and/or subsequently may also be used, subject to the Member's consent, for sending commercial communications and for direct marketing purposes, as well as, and always subject to the Member's consent, for profiling and market research purposes. Any disclosure or dissemination of data not required by legislation or not expressly authorized by Members is hereby excluded.
12.7 Personal data will be processed throughout the Program and its subsequent editions, within the terms and conditions set out in these Regulations, and will be stored after its expiration and/or a Member's withdrawal for the exclusive purpose of handling complaints and administrative/accounting disputes. After the expiration of or withdrawal from the Program, data will be kept for the statutory period of limitation applicable to Members' rights. Nevertheless, personal data will be kept for profiling or direct marketing purposes for a period not exceeding 12 and 24 months, respectively, from when it was registered, unless it is effectively anonymized to prevent the identification of those involved, even if indirectly or by linking with other databases. Any personal data that does not require archiving in relation to the purposes for which it was processed will be deleted or anonymized by both the Holders and any third parties to which it was disclosed for the aforementioned purposes.
12.8 On registering for the Program, all personal data marked by an asterisk (*) must be provided in order to fully participate in the Program and related initiatives, and to fulfill any legal requirements. Any refusal to provide the requested personal data, whether in part or in full, during the implementation of the Program, may prevent the Holders and third-party service providers acting within the context of the Program from fully implementing or correctly fulfilling any obligations arising from the Program. On the other hand, supplying personal data other than that marked by an asterisk (*) is optional and any failure to supply it will not affect the Member's registration or participation in the Program in any way.
12.9 Members will be given the appropriate information on the processing of their personal data that is collected for the sole purposes of the Program. Consent will be requested for each purpose separately, if required by law. Specifically, Members are entitled to freely express their choices on the processing of their personal data, whereby they may also state their wishes for each of the identified purposes, such as the mailing of any commercial communications, including all of the Program Communications, with the exception of organizational communications directly related to the Member and the expiration of benefits. Members may change their data, indicated preferences and consents provided, at any time, by updating their MilleMiglia profile in the section dedicated to the Program on the website www.alitalia.com or by contacting the Customer Center.
Personal data processing operations will also be dedicated to functional and/or necessary activities for managing BusinessConnect, as information about individual professionals owning single-person Companies or telephone contact numbers or addresses linked to the registered Company could be collected.
12.10 Members have the right, at any time, to obtain confirmation of the existence of their personal data, to know its contents and origin, to check its accuracy or request that it be supplemented, updated or rectified.
