Affidaty designed and created T.R.I.N.C.I., an operating system offering a range of applications that, blending the special characteristics of both private and public systems, allows it to work as both a private and/or private blockchain, whilst keeping its security features and structural integrity constant. T.R.I.N.C.I. is the fastest and most modular certified-data-transfer system that uses a decentralised and distributed environment. It does so without compromising the stability or the speed of the information transferred. This type of technology has paved the way to write interconnected blockchain devices that communicate with one another, creating a network of verifications on all types of relationships. It spreads the wealth throughout the network thanks to a Smart Contract.

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) is Avv. Alessandro Badii, who can be contacted at the following addresses: Tel: 068414562 – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org – Pec: email@example.com.
For questions or concerns on privacy practices and procedures, please contact the Affidaty S.p.A. team by submitting this form .
This Privacy Notice complies with EU Regulation no. 2016/679 regarding personal data protection. The full text is available at: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/IT/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32016R0679&from=IT .
Please note that Affidaty S.p.A. recognises and is committed to protecting the control vested in all users over their own personal data. Consequently, these data are stored inside highly secure IT systems, the only goal for which is to accurately identify our users, and to permit them to utilise our services with total transparency and security. In so doing, Affidaty S.p.A. can also be kept free of users with ulterior motives.
Affidaty S.p.A. processes personal data based on the willingness of our users to share it, and moreover based on their consent to processing. Affidaty S.p.A. respects and safeguards those rights established in EU Regulation no. 2016/679.
The legal basis for this processing is the user’s express consent, when they are willing to share some of their personal data with Affidaty S.p.A. in order to get the most out of the Affidaty S.p.A. ecosystem. This holds especially true for the contracting services, and the payment system used to ensure proper billing and accounting for all services purchased.
Affidaty S.p.A.’s core values are loyalty, ethics, transparency, and good faith. These values inform each and every decision we make, including the way we collect and protect your personal information. Therefore, the processing of our users’ personal data, and the posting of the same (with the data subject’s consent) within the platform, are predicated on these tenets.
Data is generally processed to permit users to utilise their own data within the Affidaty S.p.A. ecosystem. User-supplied data will be used, within Affidaty S.p.A., solely by Affidaty S.p.A. as the data controller to verify the user’s identity within the Affidaty S.p.A. system. The system then acts as a passive processor for the purpose of storing and protecting the data.
Since Affidaty S.p.A. does not transfer any of the data (without the user’s express consent) to any third party, all data processing on user-supplied data takes place in-house.
The “data controller” as defined under European law is Affidaty S.p.A., by and through its designated legal representative, with registered office at Viale Giovanni Milton no. 53, 50129 Florence (FI). Should you have any questions or concerns about your personal data, you may contact the data controller using this form .
Affidaty S.p.A. has no intention of transferring any collected personal data outside the EU. On the other hand, should such a transfer become necessary, Affidaty S.p.A. will notify the affected users in advance, secure their consent, and act in full compliance with Article 46 et seq. of EU Regulation no. 2016/679.
The data-storage period cannot be stated with specificity; however, the main criterion on which it is based is the user’s willingness and consent to permit Affidaty S.p.A. to retain their data. Every two years, Affidaty S.p.A. will solicit confirmation from its users to allow continued processing of their data.
It is incumbent upon us to note that users enjoy a set of rights (established by EU Regulation no. 2016/679) which may be asserted against Affidaty S.p.A.
Specifically, the aforementioned Regulation introduced the right of the data subject to request, from the data controller, access to his or her personal data (Art. 15 of the Regulation) as well as the correction, deletion, or limitation on any processing on the same (the “right to be forgotten”, Art. 17 of the Regulation), as well as the right to object to processing on the same. Additionally, Affidaty S.p.A. ensures the following:
- the right to data portability on user-supplied data (Art. 20 of the Regulation): the data subject has the right to receive their personal data from a data controller in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format, and the right to transfer the data to another controller without delay by the data controller to whom they were supplied;
- the right to revoke consent at any time, without thereby prejudicing the lawfulness of any processing predicated on consent during the period prior to revocation (Art. 7 of the Regulation);
- the right to lodge a complaint with the data controller, or with the authorities, specifically, the Data Protection Authority (garanteprivacy.it).
The timeframe in which to respond to any data subject following the exercise of any right established under EU Regulation no. 2016/679 is one (1) month, which may be extended to three (3) months in instances of complex requests.
Again, please note that should Affidaty S.p.A. intend to use user personal data for reasons other than those set forth herein, Affidaty S.p.A. shall advise the users in advance, and ask for their specific consent.
You may elect to supply us with your personal information in different ways. For example, you may send us your name and contact information for the purpose of order submission, fulfilment, and modification, for subscriptions, to sign up for a service, or for business-related purposes (if you are our vendor or business partner). You may also send us information on your credit card to make purchases, or to provide information on your educational background and professional experience, should you intend to apply for a position with Affidaty S.p.A.. If you do not wish for your information to be used to contact you in the future, Affidaty S.p.A. will abide by your decision.
If you wish to receive information, download publications, participate in an event (be it in person or online) or request a trial period, we may ask that you provide us with your name and contact information, as well as other information relating to the request as submitted. Affidaty S.p.A. will use such information within the scope of that request, and for correspondence purposes, if needed. In the vast majority of cases, this information can likewise identify the user whilst they are visiting our sites. The information will be retained for any future interactions with the user.
Additionally, Affidaty S.p.A. may ask you to register a Synkrony Alias. In that case, you must provide your name, email address, country of residence, and other information as needed for the specific type of registration. The Synkrony Alias acts as your unique identifier when you visit our websites, submit a request, or when you place an order for, or use a product or service. Most orders for services and products require the user to register for a Synkrony Alias. Signing up for a Synkrony Alias may also allow for both customisation and control of your privacy settings. Some Affidaty S.p.A. products and services may require a special registration for the purpose of supplying those specific products and services. In those cases, the registration details supplied by the user for a product or service shall be used solely for purposes relating to the supply of such product or service.
