The renewal price shall be the list price applied by Register at the time of the Customer's request and resulting from the control panel.
6.2 Renewal at expiration may be automatic or manual.
6.2.1 Expiration with automatic renewal:
In the case of expiration with automatic renewal and credit card payment, the consideration referred to in the following paragraph “Consideration and Payments" shall be charged, within the established time limits and under the conditions existing at the time of renewal, as indicated in the control panel, directly by Register on the Customer's credit card, upon communication by e-mail. If it is not possible for Register to make such a charge, the agreement may not be automatically renewed and shall be considered as having expired within the established time limit. In such a case, the Customer may renew the Service by following the manual renewal procedure.
In the case of expiration with automatic renewal and payment by a system other than credit card, 20 days before expiration, Register shall proceed, after notice by email, to renew and send the invoice to the Customer, which shall be paid within the time limit provided therein. The invoice and related payment instructions shall be sent by ordinary mail to the address stored in the files at the time of ordering.

6.2.2 Expiration with manual renewal:
In the case of expiration with manual renewal, the Customer may ask Register, through the online procedure made available by Register, to renew the Service with this SO for further and subsequent periods within the time limits that will appear on the Customer's control panel and at the technical and economic conditions in force at the time of renewal of the Service and executing the renewal procedure. In the event of non-renewal, in the forms and within the time limits indicated above, upon expiration, the Service will cease to be provided and this SO will cease to produce its effects by law, without need for any communication by Register.
7. Protection of personal data and Confidentiality.
Once the service has been purchased or renewed, the Client is required to activate the certificate by accessing the control panel and filling in the appropriate form in order to proceed with the issuing of the requested certificate.
When renewing the certificate, the Client may decide to use the CSR obtained during the activation phase and stored by Register, or choose to continue with the generation of a new CSR and the relative private key.
In the first case, Register will continue to retain the CSR obtained by the Client during the activation phase until the next renewal unless the Client, at this stage, decides to provide a new CSR. Otherwise, Register will continue to store the CSR until the next renewal. In the second case, where the Client decides to issue a new CSR and a new private key for the renewal of the certificate, Register will delete the CSR previously obtained from the Client from its systems and will only keep the newly provided CSR.
The data processing is carried out by Register as data controller and is aimed at pursuing a legitimate interest of Register, pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of EU Regulation 679/2016 (GDPR). In particular, Register has the legitimate interest to improve the quality of the activation and renewal service of the SSL Certificates of its clients, which, thanks to the retention of the CSR by Register, allows for a fast renewal process.
In any case, the provision of the Client's data through the generation or transmission of the CSR is optional, but if such data is not provided it will not be possible to proceed with the activation or renewal of the certificate. The data provided by the Client for the purpose of issuing the certificate will be disclosed to Sectigo Limited., as autonomous data controller, in order to execute the contract between the Client and Register. The Client has the right to access his/her data in accordance with Art. 15 of the GDPR, to request the restriction of data processing in the cases provided for in Art. 18 of the GDPR, and to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 of the GDPR. Since the CSR is composed of codes generated automatically by the generation tool referred to in point 4.1), it should be noted that in practice it is not possible to request the correction or deletion of the CSR itself, except by generating a new CSR using the same tool. The Client may formulate a request to object to the processing of their data pursuant to Art. 21 of the GDPR in which the reasons for the objection to processing are provided. The Data Controller shall in any case reserve the right to assess the Client's request. Requests to Register must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
