Information on processing of personal data pursuant to art. 13 D. Decree 30 June 2003, n. 196 (relating to the protection of personal data – the “Code”) 

Before accessing and using PubCoder you need to read the Information on the processing of personal data made by PubCoder, which is provided to help all users to consciously decide whether to begin to use or continue to use PubCoder and to describe how PubCoder treats personal data information of its users.
When you register and create your account, you – as the Registered User – agree to the PubCoder Terms of Service and Use and confirm that you have read the information on the processing of personal data, as well as give your consent to the processing of personal data as described below, and always in accordance with Italian law. This Policy only concerns the PubCoder Site and it is otherwise not applicable. 

Data Controller

The Data Controller is PubCoder Srl, based in Via Cavour 11, Turin (Italy). PubCoder will have the power to appoint “an independent data controller of the processing” of data relating to credit cards and alternative forms of payment chosen by the Registered User who buys Licenses, companies appointed by PubCoder for the management of payments, as well as companies that provide services to Users of PubCoder by registering in Single Sign On. 

How PubCoder collects personal data of its Users

1) Personal data collected by the User and personal data collected by Facebook and Twitter.
In order to access and to use PubCoder you need to create an account directly through the PubCoder website or, eventually, through Facebook and/or Twitter connect and/or Linkedin (hereinafter “Social Network”). To use the “FAQ” function in the public site and “Help” function in the private area of PubCoder a single sign on (SSO) is used, that transfers account data to Responsa Srl.
For this purpose, PubCoder requires consent to the collection and processing of certain personal data, that is the e-mail address, the name and surname, and other personal data that the User may have chosen to make accessible to anyone based on the privacy settings of a Social Network’s profile, if the User should decide to use a Social Network processing the PubCoder registration. These data may include, in particular, the username and the e-mail address provided when creating the account on the PubCoder website or through a Social Network.
PubCoder recommends to all its Users 1) to carefully check the privacy settings of their Social Network accounts before accessing PubCoder and create an account, 2) to not provide data that they don’t want to be communicated. Likewise PubCoder invites Users to consult the Responsa Privacy Policy, which manages the service FAQ in the public site and HELP inside the private area.

PubCoder can collect data for billing and Registered User’s transaction data in the event of the accession to Purchase Proposal. Such data may include information to process payments and billings of the Registered User.
PubCoder will not collect/treat other personal data in addition to those mentioned above. In particular PubCoder will not archive on its servers data related to credit cards or alternative forms of payment chosen by the Registered User who agreed a Purchase Proposal.
The data relating to credit cards or alternative forms of payment will be collected and processed by companies appointed by PubCoder for the management of payments.
2) Other personal data.
PubCoder provides to Users a request/response service edited by the Users: PubCoder Users post questions and other PubCoder Users’ post the answers.
What User writes and shares in the PubCoder site may contain his and third parties personal data. These data will be accessible (and, consequently, at least potentially usable) to other PubCoder Users: this could happen for every User or for just some of them, depending on the privacy settings of the account, that each user is required to carefully check immediately after the registration on the site or otherwise, at the latest, before posting anything on PubCoder, to avoid an undesirable circulation of the data.
Moreover, the sharing of personal data of other persons on the PubCoder site assumes that Users who publish such data have complied with the Italian legislation and, in particular, have informed the interested parties pursuant to art. 13 of the Code and have collected their consent to process personal data, just like what is now making PubCoder.
PubCoder doesn’t collect or process personal data that could be contained in the questions and/or answers posted by users and is not responsible for their protection, nor for the use that other PubCoder Users can make of such data, to whom the personal data have been made ​​available to those who have shared them. PubCoder is not also responsible for any unlawful treatment, made by its Users, of other users and/or third parties’ personal data.
