Data Controller

Visiting this site may result into the processing of data concerning identified or identifiable persons.

The data controller is Petroservices Mediterranea, with registered office in Siracusa (Italy), Viale Teracati 51/L.

Place where data is processed

The processing operations related to the web-based services that are made available via this website are carried out at the aforementioned office of the Data Controller exclusively by technical staff in charge of said processing, or else by persons tasked with such maintenance activities as may be necessary from time to time.

No data resulting from web-based services is either communicated or disseminated.

Navigation Data

The computer-based systems and the software procedures involved in the workings of this site, in the course of their normal service, come into possession of some personal data. The transmission of these personal data is an inherent feature of Internet communication protocols.

These personal data aren’t collected to be associated to any identified person, but, through processes and associations with data owned by third parties, by their own nature might lead to the identification of users.

This data category includes IP addresses and/or the domain names of the computers used by any user connecting with this web site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of such requests, the method used for submitting a given request to the server, returned file size, a numerical code relating to server response status (successfully performed, error, etc.), and other parameters related to the user’s operating system and computer environment.

These data are only used to extract anonymous statistical information on website use as well as to check its functioning; they are erased immediately after being processed. The data might be used to establish liability in case computer crimes are committed against the website; except for this circumstance, any data on web contacts is currently retained for no longer than seven days.

Data provided voluntarily by users

The optional, explicit and voluntary provisioning of personal data by registration forms on this site involves the subsequent acquisition of these personal data. These data will be processed with the purpose of responding to required service. Specific information to data subjects will progressively be reported or displayed on the pages of the site set up for particular services on demand.


No personal data concerning users is acquired by the website in this regard.

No cookies are used to transmit personal information, nor are so-called persistent cookies or user tracking systems implemented.

Use of the so-called session cookies – which are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and disappear upon closing the browser – is exclusively limited to the transmission of session ID’s – consisting of server-generated casual numbers – as necessary to allow secure, effective navigation.

The so-called session cookies used by this website make it unnecessary to implement other computer techniques that are potentially detrimental to the confidentiality of user navigation, whilst they do not allow acquiring the user’s personal identification data.

Voluntary providing of personal data

Except for what has been specified for navigation data, users are free to provide their personal data. Failure to provide such data may entail the failure to be provided with the items requested or may compromise the functionality of some parts of the site.

Processing Arrangements

Personal data is processed with automated means for no longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes for which it has been collected.

Specific security measures are implemented to prevent the data from being lost, used unlawfully and/or inappropriately, and accessed without authorisation.

Communication and dissemination of data

Personal data may be transferred or communicated to third parties for processing closely connected and instrumental to the efficiency of the service, such as the management of the data processing system. Personal data may also be communicated to third parties if essential to execute requests from Judicial Authorities or from the Police. Apart from said cases, data will not be disseminated.

Data subject’s right

Data subjects are entitled at any time to obtain confirmation of the existence of personal data concerning them and be informed of their contents and origin, verify their accuracy, or else request that such data be supplemented, updated or rectified (Art. 7, Legislative Decree 30 June 2003, n. 196). The above Art. 7 also provides for the right to request erasure, anonymization or blocking of any data that is processed in breach of the law as well as to object in all cases, on legitimate grounds, to processing of the data.

Petroservices Mediterranea Srl. checks privacy and security policy regularly and, if necessary, reviews it in accordance with the amendments introduced by the law, the organizational changes, or prompted by technological evolution. Any changes to said policy will be posted on this section.
