In such a case the user is free to provide the data. Failure to provide personal data will not have negative consequences for the data subject. However, failure to provide the aforementioned information would make it impossible to gain access to the Luxottica building and consequently to take part in the selection procedures.

        • In some cases, Luxottica has a legitimate interest in the processing of the user’s personal data.

    e) Where do we transfer personal data?

    Depending on the case, some of the companies belonging to the categories mentioned under point 2.d (2,3) may be located in countries that do not offer an appropriate level of protection of personal data. The European Commission has the power to define a country as adequate and the updated list of countries offering protection can be consulted here.

    Transfers of personal data outside the European Union and to countries not included in the list mentioned above will be made exclusively following specific agreements between Luxottica and the companies involved, through the use of instruments deemed suitable by the European Commission, such as Standard contractual clauses for data transfers between EU and non-EU countries.
