    Types of data processed and period of preservation

    Through the LMS, different types of personal data will be collected.

    Personal data necessary for the execution of the contract

    Generic personal data - such as name, surname, email address, banking data - necessary to carry out the contractual relationship.

    Personal data provided directly by the User

    The personal data provided by you voluntarily will be processed exclusively in order to provide feedback to requests received by Rulex. These data will not be used for profiling or direct marketing activities.

    Access data

    Rulex performs processing operations on the credentials of Users (such as username, password, and authorization profiles) who access the platform in order to allow proper management of access and visibility of content within the reserved area.

    Usage data

    In relation to the activities carried out by Users (e.g., course consumption, downloading materials, teaching materials, training minutes and certificates, management of course participation, use of chat or comments on content, carrying out tests) Rulex collects and records the relevant data with the goal of making them available to both Users and internal company personnel authorized to access them.

    Navigation data

    The computer systems and software procedures used to operate the LMS acquire, during their normal operation, some data whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. These data are processed to ensure proper management and delivery of the LMS.

    These are information that are not collected to be associated with identified parties, but which by their nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

    In this category of data fall the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the LMS, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and the user's computer environment.

    These data are used solely for the purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the LMS and to control its correct operation

    Retention Period

    Your personal data will be retained for the necessary time to fulfil contractual obligations as well as for the additional purposes and legal bases outlined above for a maximum period of 10 years from the termination of the contract, unless certain requirements justify further retention, such as the emergence of disputes. In this latter case, your personal data will be retained until the expiration of the statute of limitations for any legal actions.

    Data voluntarily provided by you without the establishment of a contract with Rulex will be retained for 12 months before being deleted.
