All of your personal data is stored in secure servers (or secure paper copies) and is accessible and usable by our security standards and policies (or equivalent standards for our suppliers or business partners).
Among other measures, we adopt measures such as:
• the strict restriction of access to your personal data, on a need-to-know basis and for the sole purpose communicated; perimeter security systems to prohibit unauthorised access from the outside
• the permanent monitoring of access to information systems to detect and stop the abuse of personal data.
• six-monthly penetration tests aimed at highlighting any leaks in perimeter security

• transactions on our websites that require your personal data to be entered are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR INFORMATION
We store your personal data only for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected or for any other legitimate purpose related to it. Therefore, if personal data are processed for two different purposes, we will retain those data until the purpose expires with the longer term, but we will no longer process personal data for that purpose for which the retention period has expired. We restrict access to your personal data only to those who need to use it to perform their duties.
Your personal data, which is no longer needed or for which there is no longer a legal basis for its storage, is anonymised irreversibly (and in this way can be stored) or securely destroyed.
Below are the storage times for the different purposes listed above:
Fulfilment of contractual obligations: the data processed to fulfil any contractual obligation may be kept for the entire duration of the contract as well as for the next 10 years (in the case of the Venezia Unica card, for 1 year after expiry of the card), in order to verify any outstanding matter or for compliance with legal obligations (e.g. accounting documentation).
Operational management and purposes strictly connected to this for access to the website: the data processed for this purpose may be stored for one year following the duration of the underlying contract for which access was made.
Purpose of customer satisfaction surveys: the data processed for this purpose may be kept for three years from the date of the survey.
Marketing Purposes: Personal data processed for marketing purposes may be retained for two years from the date on which we obtained your last consent for such purposes (except for the opposition to receive further communications).
Disputes: If it is necessary to defend ourselves or to act or also to make claims against you or any third party, we may retain personal data that we reasonably deem necessary to process for such purposes, for as long as such claim can be pursued.
WITH WHOM WE MAY SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your personal data may be accessed by the employees of Vela, as well as by the suppliers and collaborators, duly appointed as data controllers, who provide support for the provision of services, and by the companies of the AVM group (including the parent company Azienda Veneziana della Mobilità S.p.A., which is responsible for the local public transport service, and Actv S.p.A., which carries out this service operationally).
