The aforementioned companies have an equal interest in relation to the Program's objectives and equal decision-making authority in respect of its management.
10.2 As Alitalia Loyalty's primary objective is to manage and develop services related to the Program in order to promote customer loyalty, Alitalia has named Alitalia Loyalty as Data Processor pursuant to and for the purposes of Art. 29 of the Privacy Code, with particular regard to the role of Program manager, and customer relations management. By the same token, Alitalia Loyalty has named Alitalia as Data Processor, with particular regard to infrastructure, system and security management.
10.3 All personal data provided either at registration or at a later date shall be processed by the Controllers in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations on personal data protection and, in particular, the Privacy Code.
10.4 Personal data must be processed in order to manage Members' participation in the Program, allocate any Rewards to Members, provide the other benefits associated with their participation in the Program and their cardholder status, and supply any related services, in accordance with the present Regulations. The Controllers will also process special data categories that Members supply when registering for the Program in the website www.alitalia.com. This information relates to meal preferences and allocated seats on flights operated by Alitalia or Partners. This information is useful in order to offer Program Members a more personalized service. By selecting their preferred options and registering for the Program in the website www.alitalia.com, Members give their consent for the Controllers to use any data that may disclose such aspects 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 services. 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 effect on Members' registration for and participation in the Program.
10.5 The correct performance of the aforementioned data processing activities implies that Members' personal data may be accessed by the Controllers' sales staff and by third-party service providers in the context of the Program (for example, direct marketing companies, market analysts, Customer Centres, 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 commercial communication purposes; the Controllers’ sales staff shall act as “Data Supervisors” for the Controllers, whereas the third-party service providers shall act as “Processors” of such data. A list of third-party companies providing services associated with the Program and acting as the “Processors” of Members’ personal data is available at the Controllers' offices. The Controllers 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, by methods and means that ensure data confidentiality. Data will be processed electronically, manually or in paper form. Processing will consist of data comparison, classification, calculation and sorting into lists, all in accordance with the minimum security requirements to protect the confidentiality of the subject to which the data relates (“data subject”) and to avoid the risk of data being accessed by unauthorized third parties. All data, grouped into categories and/or clusters in anonymous form, may be used in the Controllers' statistical analyses to check the marketing preferences of their customers. The Controllers also warrant and represent that any personal data relating to Program Members shall exclusively be used for purposes related to their participation in the Program, and for sending organizational information to Members regarding their Membership status and the possible expiration of benefits associated with the Program. All data provided by Members at registration and/or at a later date may also be used, subject to the Member's prior consent, for sending commercial communications and for direct marketing purposes, as well as for profiling and market research purposes, always subject to the Member's prior consent. Any disclosure or dissemination of data not required by legislation or not expressly authorized by Members is hereby excluded.
10.6 Navigation in the website www.alitalia.com implies the collection of specific information to identify the user’s computer or browser by means of tracking files usually known as "cookies". Cookies are encrypted text strings that can be stored onto the user’s mobile phone (in case of access to the mobile website) or the user’s computer so as to enable its quick identification at a later time. Cookies configured for a mobile website will only store information related to the user’s Given Name, Family Name and Ticket Number.

10.7 Personal data will be processed for the full duration of the Program and its subsequent editions, on the terms and conditions set out in the present Regulations, and will be stored after its expiration and/or a Member's withdrawal for the exclusive purpose of handling complaints and administrative and/or accounting disputes depending on the statutory period for the time-barring of Members’ claims. 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 the data subjects either directly or indirectly, or by reference to other databases. Any personal data whose archiving is unnecessary for the purposes for which it was collected and processed will be deleted or anonymized by both the Controllers and any third parties to which it was disclosed for the aforementioned purposes.
10.8 On registering for the Program, all personal data marked by an asterisk (*) are required in order to fully participate in the Program and related initiatives, and to fulfil any legal requirements. Any refusal to provide the required personal data, whether in full or in part, whether at the time of registration or throughout the Program period may prevent the Controllers and third-party service providers acting within the context of the Program from fully implementing it or correctly fulfilling any obligations arising from it. 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 and participation in the Program in any way.
10.9 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 preferences in respect of the processing of their personal data, whereby they may also state their wishes for each of the identified purposes, including the mailing of any commercial communications and all Program Communications, except for organizational information regarding their Membership status and the expiration of benefits. Members may at any time change their data, their expressed preferences and their given consent(s) by updating their MilleMiglia profile in the Program section of the website www.alitalia.com or by contacting the Customer Centre.
10.10 All of the Members concerned have the right to obtain confirmation of the existence of their personal data, know its contents and its source, check its accuracy or request that it be supplemented, updated or rectified at all times. Members also have the right to request the deletion, anonymization or blocking of any data processed in violation of the provisions of the Personal Data Protection Code, and object, in any case, to its processing for legitimate reasons. One such request – addressed to Alitalia, which will answer in association with Alitalia Loyalty – shall be sent in writing, with a handwritten signature and an attached copy of a valid identity document, to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. The Italian Data Protection Authority requires the compilation of a special form for the “Exercise of rights in relation to personal data protection”, which can be downloaded from its website.
10.11 In order to withdraw from the Program, Members are required to send a written request bearing reference to their personal MilleMiglia code with an attached and countersigned copy of a valid identity document to the email address email@example.com or to the Customer Centre fax number +39 06 65627132/7133.

11.2 The Promoters will give notice to the Members of any temporary suspension Program or its early termination through the website www.alitalia.com or in the Program Communications.

In any case of early termination of the Program members will not be entitled to use the accrued Miles for the request of Rewards within the current Program edition after 31 January 2018, irrespective of the date of effectiveness of the early termination of the Program, because the aforementioned term represents the deadline for the request of any Reward.
