The right of WILDIX to take legal action for compensation for any damage suffered remains unaffected.

8.2 It is expressly forbidden to use WILDIX's services and systems to carry out, over telephone traffic, arbitration activities, or in general to develop telecommunications traffic by which one may obtain advantages, bonuses, credit, money or similar benefits for oneself or third parties merely by sending and/or receiving communications of any kind, even those which are received but not replied to. It is forbidden to use WILDIX systems in any way in order to obtain advantages for oneself or for others, including but not limited to by means of telephone calls or SMSes sent to numbers such as mobile or fixed network numbers with so-called "auto top-up" or "reward" offers, or to "premium" or "personal number" or "shared cost" numbers in any country, which return money or credit or benefits to the holder of the number or to whoever uses it. It is forbidden to use WILDIX services to automatically generate outbound call campaigns with or without the recipient’s response.

8.3 The CUSTOMER may not in any way transfer this contract to third parties, either free of charge or for consideration, without the prior written consent of WILDIX.

8.4 The service is provided by WILDIX solely in favor of the CUSTOMER, who therefore remains solely responsible for allowing use of the service to third parties. The CUSTOMER shall inform anyone who uses the WILDIX services that the CUSTOMER is allowed to review in detail the traffic carried through the service, including all the numbers which are sending calls and all numbers receiving calls.

8.5 The CUSTOMER shall use the numbering assigned to him in compliance with the regulations applicable in the country where the DIDs are assigned. WILDIX reserves the right at any time to carry out checks regarding compliance with the aforementioned rule, which may be manual or automatic, even should technical means be at its disposal. If WILDIX detects use of the numbers that does not comply with regulations, WILDIX may revoke the use of the number to the CUSTOMER and terminate the existing contract, without anything being due to him.

8.6 In the event of the development of traffic deemed anomalous by WILDIX, or in the event of the triggering of automatic or manual anti-fraud systems by WILDIX that lead to suspicion of even potential fraud, or of illicit activity or contractual violation, or in the event that technicians may put the infrastructure of WILDIX or other operators at risk, WILDIX may suspend, even selectively, the services provided to the CUSTOMER without anything being owed to the same. WILDIX will reactivate the services if verifications do not confirm the suspicions. The right of WILDIX to take legal action for compensation for any damage suffered remains unaffected.

9.10 The CUSTOMER relieves WILDIX from any responsibility for any attacks and/or intrusions by third parties from the network through the equipment with which the service is provided. The CUSTOMER declares that he is aware that third parties can access systems via the Internet and can overcome the security of the systems to use them improperly and cause damage to third parties. In the event that WILDIX detects an intrusion attempt through the accesses and data it lawfully disposes of for the provision of the service, it may interrupt the service, without any obligation, until the CUSTOMER takes steps to implement the measures necessary to prevent the situation from persisting. The CUSTOMER shall hold harmless from any direct and/or indirect damage as well as the payment of any charge, expense, indemnity or any prejudice that may be suffered by WILDIX or the employees or collaborators of the parties or other subjects who use the services or even those who are only connected or occasioned by the execution of this contract by their employees and/or collaborators, consultants, their representatives as well as their substitutes, even on an extra-contractual basis.

ART. 10 - PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

10.1 Given that the rule for the protection of personal data applies to the processing of data relating to natural persons, WILDIX indicates that personal data of employees and collaborators of the CUSTOMER are collected for the following purposes:

  • sending newsletters;
  • customer reference;
  • accounting purposes;
  • commercial information;
  • fulfillment of accounting/tax obligations.

The data are stored electronically and accessed by WILDIX employees and collaborators who have been appointed for the processing for this purpose.

Where necessary, the data may also be disclosed to third parties unrelated to WILDIX. Below is a short list of third parties to whom our company can transmit your data: public bodies for the fulfillment of legal obligations; credit institutions; outsourcers; consultants who perform contractual services or support them; professionals (accountants, lawyers, etc.); third party suppliers of WILDIX; transport companies; company debt collectors. The CUSTOMER has the right to have confirmation of the existence of data concerning him, to rectify or update them, to delete them or to oppose their processing for legitimate reasons. The data controller is WILDIX, which may be contacted for the exercise of these rights.

The parties, by signing this contract, mutually acknowledge and confirm that any processing of personal data that derives from the execution of this contract will be carried out solely for the purposes related to such execution.

WILDIX shall process the data solely for contractual purposes and for the fulfillment of legal obligations as well as for any defensive purposes. Processing for promotional purposes is allowed without the need for the CUSTOMER's consent only for the promotion of services similar to that referred to in this contract. Further advertising purposes require specific consent, the failure of which does not affect in any way the execution of this contract.

10.2 The CUSTOMER may modify and update his personal data by means of a written request to WILDIX.

ART. 11 - CONFIDENTIALITY OF TRANSITED INFORMATION AND MESSAGES 

11.1 Without prejudice to the provisions of the previous point, each party shall keep secret all information acquired in relation to the supply relationship. Each party takes every necessary precaution in order to safeguard the confidentiality and secrecy of such information and to prevent its disclosure to third parties, and will limit its communication only to employees and consultants who have an effective need to know it for the purposes referred to in this supply relationship in compliance with the need to know principle, undertaking not to disclose the information to third parties, not to make it public or accessible by any other means unless it is expressly permitted with written consent issued by the party making the disclosure or delivery of information; it being understood that each party will not be deemed in breach of the provisions of this article as a result of communications made in compliance with the provisions contained in any rule or regulation or order promulgated by public authorities having jurisdiction over it in relation to the execution of this Agreement and to the operations envisaged therein. Each party ensures that these commitments are also respected by its directors, statutory auditors, employees, promoters and consultants to whom such information has been communicated. The confidentiality obligations set forth herein will cease at the end of the first year from the date of termination of the effectiveness of this Agreement.

11.2 WILDIX shall not access and/or intercept the content of the messages and/or the telephone calls transmitted through its systems, and shall not communicate it to third parties, except in the cases provided for by law at the request of the Judicial and Police Authorities. Similarly, it complies with the law for the management of traffic data. The CUSTOMER may request the publication of his personal data from the telephone directories in accordance with the relevant legislation and regulations.

11.3 The CUSTOMER appoints WILDIX responsible for the processing of the identification data of the telephone communications received by the user. WILDIX will keep such data for the time requested by the CUSTOMER. WILDIX will protect such data with the organizational and logical measures required by law.

11.4 Communications Security. As part of the telecommunications service provided, adequate security measures are adopted to protect communications. Nevertheless, there may be situations that allow unauthorized third parties to learn the content of the same even unintentionally. In particular, unless encryption systems are adopted, the messages circulate on the networks in the clear and the networks prove to be easily attacked despite the adoption of up-to-date protection systems.
