Conversely, the user’s prior consent is required to use “profiling” cookies, which create profiles on the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences the user has shown while browsing online.

Rights of the Data Subject – Complaint against the Supervisory Authority
By contacting Valsoia by email to the certified email address email@example.com, Data Subjects may request the Data Controller to access the personal data concerning them, as well as request the erasure, the rectification of inaccurate data, the supplementation of incomplete data and the restriction to the processing of data pursuant to the cases envisaged in article 18 of the GDPR and request the objection to the processing of the data on grounds relating to their particular situation, unless the controller demonstrates legitimate grounds for the processing. Moreover, if the processing is based on a consent or contract and is carried out with automated instruments, Data Subjects have the right to obtain the personal data from the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and if technically possible, have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance. Data Subjects have the right to withdraw the consent granted at any time whenever data is used for marketing purposes or profiling, as well as the right to object to the processing of the data when data is used for marketing purposes, including profiling linked with direct marketing. The above without prejudice to the possibility for the Data Subject to prefer being contacted for the above purposes exclusively through traditional means, to express their objection only upon receipt of information through automated means. Data Subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent Supervisory Authority in the member state where they normally reside or work or in the country in which the alleged breach took place.
