By using WiColl platform (, you entrust us with your data. We are aware of our responsibility and do our utmost to ensure the protection of your personal data and the privacy of users. In this privacy policy, we outline the information we collect, how we use this information and what choices are available to you.

Basic information

WiColl is owned by da Vinci Srls, Via San Vincenzo 2, 16121 Genova, Italy, website:, email address: (hereinafter referred to as "DaVinci", "us", or "we"), as described on the Imprint on the page footer of the website

In this privacy policy, we outline the nature, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data on the platform WiColl (hereinafter referred to as "the Platform").

Platform operator: da Vinci Srls (, Via San Vincenzo, 2 – 16121 Genova, Italy

For the exact definitions of the terms used, such as "personal data" or their "processing", see Art. 4 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as "GDPR").


We place great value on the protection of personal data and the privacy of users. All personal data is therefore kept strictly confidential and not disclosed to third parties, with the exception of the cases described in this privacy policy.

We take organizational, contractual and technical safety measures to ensure that the regulations of data protection laws are complied with, and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, damage, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.

When appointing subcontractors to provide our services, we take appropriate legal precautions and suitable technical and organizational measures to protect all personal data in accordance with the law.

Opening a user account

When opening a user account, personal identification data will be collected such as first name, last name, company name, city, country, email address, phone number and references.

In the case of explicit consent (e.g. by ticking a box when opening a user account or by explicitly using a feature of our platform), this data will be used by us to send notifications, reminders and newsletters, and for further similar purposes.

When a user accepts on the Platform a proposal from an auction house or a dealer, the personal data will be forwarded to the auction house or to the dealer for contacting the user and continuing the negotiation outside the Platform directly with the user. The auction house and the dealer are required to treat all data as strictly confidential and not to pass it on to third parties, in accordance with Art. 8 of WiColl Terms of Use.

In addition to personal data, reference information about the user left by auction houses reporting their own experience with the user will be collected on the Platform.

The legal basis for this is the consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 let. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the processing for the fulfillment of contractual or precontractual measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 let. b GDPR and the processing for fulfillment of legal obligations in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 let. c GDPR.

Collection of access data

Each time the Platform is accessed, data transferred by the browser is gathered, such as the access date and time, the exact URL of the visited website, the referrer URL (the last visited website), language, time zone and the user agent (allowing conclusions to be drawn on the browser used, the system and the device). This data is used for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the Platform as well as for statistical analysis. The data will not be disclosed to third parties unless there is justified suspicion of an unlawful act.

The legal basis for this is the safeguarding of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 let. f GDPR.

Establishing contact

When establishing contact with us (via contact form or email), the information provided by the user is used in order to process the contact request, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 let. a GDPR.


We use cookies on our platform. This means that when visiting the Platform, small data files are automatically created by the user's browser and stored on the user's device.

On one hand, the deployment of cookies enables a more pleasant use of the Platform for the user. We use so-called "session cookies" to cache certain information while the user is on the Platform. This information is automatically deleted upon leaving the Platform.

In addition, we use cookies to save selected long-term settings (e.g. language or currency) in order to increase user-friendliness. These settings are saved on the user's device for a certain period of time.

Most browsers enable the use of cookies automatically. The browser can, however, be configured so that no cookies are stored on the device, or so that a notification always appears before a new cookie is created. Disabling cookies completely can, however, mean that not all the functions on the Platform are available.

Rights of the User

Users have the right, upon request, to full and gratuitous disclosure of their personal data that has been stored by us.

In addition, users have the right to correct inaccurate data, limit the processing and delete their personal data, assert their rights to data portability (if applicable) and, in the event of unlawful data processing, to file a complaint with the appropriate supervisory authority.

Likewise, users can revoke their consent without affecting the legitimacy of the processing up to the revocation.

The data stored with us is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for its intended purpose, provided that the deletion does not conflict with any legal storage requirements. In the case that the users' data is not deleted, as its retention is necessary for other legal purposes, the processing of the data will be limited. This means that the data will remain blocked and not used for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained due to commercial or tax reasons.

Data will be stored for a period compliant with the legal requirements in force.

Users may object to any future processing of their personal data in accordance with legal requirements at any time.

Changes to the privacy policy

We reserve the right to make changes to the privacy policy in order to adapt it to the amended legislation or changes in services and processing of data.

Users are requested to inform themselves regarding the content of the privacy policy on a regular basis.
