Any refusal to provide YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and Pomellato S.p.A with such data that is needed for those purposes could make it impossible to perform the contract to purchase the products on pomellato.com or to provide other services that are available on pomellato.com - such as, for example, to provide customer care services (Customer Care), the use of the Wish List, to show an item to a friend, or even to correctly fulfil the legal and regulatory obligations.

Disclosure to YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and Pomellato S.p.A of further data, other than what is mandatory, for the purposes of performing its own legal or contractual obligations, or to provide certain services upon request is, conversely, optional and does not entail any consequence for the use of the website and its services, or to acquire products on pomellato.com.

The data shall not be disclosed, assigned or in any other way transferred to other third parties unless the users have been previously informed thereof and, upon their consent, when this has been required by law.
