These third party agencies will be given only the information that is strictly necessary for the execution of their operations. They are required to handle the data as if they were the owners, or, in some cases, as Responsible Managers appointed by the Owner, with the same objectives as those indicated in this Privacy Policy.

It is navigation data connected with the technical use of the site, which allow the registered user to access the services that are offered. This information is given compulsorily.

This type of information allows the identification the user or the interested party.

Data voluntarily supplied by the User

Supplying sensitive personal data, such as data that might identify the user’s ethnic or racial background, religious or philosophical beliefs, political opinions, health conditions or sexual orientation, remains an optional and voluntary action, and requires explicit consent by the User.

In case the User should decide to utilize the site, in any way, for publishing or sharing a third party’s data, he/she will assume total and complete responsibility for such action. The Owner will be held harmless for the instrumental handling of data consequent to said communication or dissemination.

For this reason Pontex guarantees services from suppliers that conform to protection protocols for data safety, such as “Safe Harbor”, that is, a bilateral agreement between EU and USA that defines safe and shared rules for personal data transfer to companies located in the US.

VELVET FOREVER

Viscose and elastomer velvets, tactile fabrics customisable in their colour and aspect too   The activity of Pontex Research & Development has created viscose velvets and elastomer velvets, completely customisable in every aspect   Velvet is a must-have element in all the collections of fabrics for clothing by Pontex: it is due do its exceptional wearability and to its aspect that is elegant and casual at the same time, depending on the effect that we want to trigger and communicate. In fact, velvet expresses itself through its two different versions: the smooth, elegant and refined one, and the corduroy, more casual and vintage. The contrasts between shiny and matt, the irregular and crushed effects proposed in the Pontex Collection make it a living, soft and fluid fabric, to be explored through enveloping clothes like blazers, corduroy shirts and  high-quality, contemporary and sophisticated trousers. Velvet is unique and charismatic, due to its soft and fluffy texture: touching it, you immediately feel the sensation of its body in your hands and the unique way it reflects light and absorbs the colour. Sumptuous and regal thanks to the deepness of its vivid colour that changes depending on light, velvet has been able over the time to adapt itself to a more daily use too, thanks to the different processing techniques that characterise it with different aspects: from corduroy to froissé (creased aspect), from velveton (Moleskine) to jacquard (that has its design woven into the weft) Quality and utmost customisation  The R&S team of Pontex constantly designs new types of velvet for clothing, that undergo continuous and thorough quality tests. All the velvets for clothing by Pontex are top quality, authentic, versatile fabrics, customisable in their aspect and colour depending on the Customer’s needs. In order to obtain greater durability, elasticity and wearability, the range of velvets by Pontex includes viscose velvets and elastomer velvets too.
