Documentation drafted by the requirements of GDPR 2016/679 “General Data Protection Regulation” and current national legislation.

The Company hereby informs that a telephone switchboard system that allows the recording of corporate telephone calls has been set up.
The treatment of personal data by GDPR 2016/679 and the national laws in force resulting from the recording, storage and listening of recordings will be based on the principles of correctness, lawfulness, transparency and protection of your privacy and your rights.

Collection and processing of personal data.

The processing (including recordings of telephone conversations) of personal data, whether requested or collected, aims only at:

It is not foreseen for automated decision-making processes, including the profiling referred to in Art. 22 of the GDPR.

Legal basis of the processing.

The legal basis for processing your personal data, for the purposes mentioned above, is based on the requirement to fulfil legal obligations to which the Controller is subject (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a), b), c) and para. 4).

Mode of treatment.

Data are collected, processed and archived on magnetic, electronic and/or telematic media, and paper if the records are typed, using internal or external Viasat Group employees and in compliance with the confidentiality and security rules established by law, consequent regulations and internal instructions.
In all cases, processing takes place based on assignments formalized beforehand, and at the same time as appropriate information and instruction on the safety measures and procedures to be adopted to ensure an adequate level of security. 

During the call, the customer will be informed in advance of the status of the recording using a short staff note or voice recording.
If he/she does not intend to interrupt the call, the principle of ‘continuation of the call/assent’ to the registration will be manifested.

Place of processing

The data are processed and stored at VIASAT SPA headquarters in Via Giulio Vincenzo Bona 133 – 00156 Rome (RM) Italy. They are also processed, on behalf of the Company, by consultants and/or companies appointed to carry out technical and development activities as well as by third parties, including suppliers of technical and IT services, appointed as Data Processors, their list being available on request from the Data Controller.

Mandatory or optional nature of data transfer and consequences of a refusal to confer data.

The data conferral is optional, but necessary to manage the service provided and quality levels and, if necessary, to formalize, accept and manage requests and/or customer claims. Without the data conferral, it will not be possible to follow up on the caller’s requests.

Compulsory or optional nature of transfer data.

Some data are required for the contractual agreement or its execution, while others can be defined as optional, but are also necessary to manage, control the service provided and quality levels and, if necessary, to formalise, accept and manage requests and/or claims submitted by the customer. The transfer of data to the company is mandatory only for data for which there is a legal or contractual obligation.

Consequences transfer refuse.

Where there is a legal or contractual obligation to transfer data, a refusal will put the Supplier in the position of not being able to execute or continue the Contract, as this would constitute illegal processing. Where there is no legal obligation to transfer the data, refusal would not produce the above-mentioned consequences, but would in any case prevent the execution of secondary operations.
