Types of data handled

Navigation data

The computer systems and the software procedures guiding the working of this Website acquire, in the course of their normal running, some personal data whose transmission is implicit to the use of the communication protocols of the Internet. This is information that is not gathered to be associated with identified subjects, but that, by its very nature, could, though elaborations and associations with data held by third parties allow users to be identified.

This data category includes IP addresses or domains of computers used by the users who connect to the site, the addresses of notation URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to make the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numeric code indicating the status of the reply given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the computer environment of the user.

This data is used only for the purposes of gathering anonymous statistical information on the use of the site, and to check that it functions correctly. Such data is deleted immediately after processing. The data can be used to trace those responsible in the hypothetical case of cybercrimes against the site.

Data supplied voluntarily by the user

The elective, explicit and voluntary sending of emails to the addresses indicated on this site implies the consequent acquisition of the email address of the sender, which is needed in order to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data inserted in the message sent.

Specific informative summaries will be progressively reported or visualised on the pages of the website dedicated to particular services by request.


No personal data of users is deliberately acquired by the site.

Cookies are not used to transmit information of a personal nature, nor are any kind of so-called persistent cookies, intended as user tracking systems.

The use of so-called session cookies (which are not memorised in a persistent way on the user’s computer and vanish when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identification data (composed of random numbers generated by the server) as needed to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site.

The so-called session cookies used in this site avoid employing other information technology techniques that can potentially compromise the privacy of the user’s navigation and do not allow the acquisition of identificative personal data of the user.

Elective data provision

Aside from what has been specified for navigation data, the user is free to supply the personal data in the request modules or in any case in the dedicated sections of the site in order to request to receive information or other communications.

Failing to provide this data may make it impossible to fulfil such requests.

Data handling

Personal data is managed with automated instruments for the minimum time needed to fulfil their intended use.

Specific security measures are taken to prevent data loss, incorrect or illicit use, or unauthorised access.

Rights of the interested parties

The subjects whose data is handled have the right, at any time, to obtain confirmation of the existence or absence of the same data and to know the content and origin, verify their accuracy or ask for additions or updates, or rectifications according to Italian law (art. 7 of the d.lgs. n. 196/2003).

According to the same article of law users have the right to request the cancellation, transformation in anonymous form or the blocking of the data handled in violation of the law, as well as to oppose, in any case, for legitimate reasons, their handling.

This privacy policy may be modified periodically and the use of the data gathered is subject to the privacy policy in force at the time of use.

The present document, published on the website, constitutes the “Privacy Policy” of this site and is subject to updating (the previous versions will remain available for consultation on this site).
