Types of Data Handled

In the normal use of the information systems and software procedures that operate the site, certain personal data is acquired and then implicitly transmitted using internet communication protocols. This is information that could, by its nature, through associations and processing with data held by third parties, allow users/visitors to be identified (e.g., IP address, domain names of computers utilised by users/visitors that connect to the site, etc.). This data is used primarily for statistical information and to check that the website is functioning properly. The data on internet contacts is not maintained after it is processed, with the exception of possible verifications of information crimes against the site. No data resulting from the web service will be communicated or disseminated.

Providing Data

Aside from what has been specified with respect to navigation data, users/visitors are free to provide their personal data.

We ask users to provide the requested personal data during the registration procedure, ensuring that the data is current, complete and true. Furthermore, we suggest that users/visitors update their registration data on a timely and continual basis so that it continues to be current, complete and true. If the user provides false, inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete information, or if MainStreaming believes, based on its own assessment, that the data provided by the user is false, inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete, Mainstreaming has the right to disactivate, temporarily or definitively, the account of the user in question and to ban him/her from using the service in the future.
