Additional information may be provided inside specific sections.




1.1. Browsing data

The IT systems and the applications dedicated to the operation of this website obtain, during their normal operation, certain personal data, the transmission of which is inherent to the use of Internet communication protocols.

Said information is not obtained to be associated to identified data subjects, but may, by its very nature, through treatment and association with data held by third parties, allow the identification of the users/visitors. The data collected include the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by the users who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources queried, the time of the query, the method used in submitting the query to the server, the size of the file received in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the reply provided by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the user’s operating system and IT environment.

Said data are processed for the period of time that is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which they were collected, for the sole purpose of retrieving anonymous statistical information on the use of the site (accesses thereto) and to control its proper operation.

The data may be used for ascertaining liability in case of any IT-related offences against the site.


1.2. Data willingly provided by the user

Sending e-mail messages to the addresses indicated on this site (for example, in order to request information) entails the acquisition of the address of the sender, as well as of any other personal data inserted in the messages. Such data will be processed solely for the purpose of replying to the request and will only be communicated to third parties in case that is necessary for the fulfilment of said request (e.g. sending the information requested).

If the users/visitors are asked, in order to access specific services, to provide their personal data, the pages relating to such services will contain an appropriate and detailed Information Notice regarding the processing pursuant to the rules and regulations in force which will specify the limits, the purposes and the methods of such processing.


1.3. Cookies Description of cookies

Cookies are small text files that are sent by the website visited by the user to the device of the user (exclusively to the browser), where they will be stored so that said device may be recognised on the occasion of the user’s next visit to the site. At each subsequent visit, in fact, cookies are re-sent to the site by the user’s device.

Cookies, however, may be “installed” (more specifically, stored and accessed) not just by the administrator of the website visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also by a different site that “installs” cookies via the first site (third-party cookies) and is able to recognise them. This happens because the site visited may have elements (images, maps, sounds, links to the webpages of other domains, etc.) which are stored on servers other than the one of the visited site.

Based on their purpose, cookies are divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are “installed” for the exclusive purpose of “transmitting a message on an electronic communication network, or to the extent that is absolutely necessary for the supplier of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or the user, in order to provide said service. They are used exclusively to allow smooth browsing between pages, to memorise users’ preferences (e.g. font size, language, country, etc.), to memorise information on specific configurations of the users themselves, to manage their authentication, etc. Some of these cookies (so-called essential or strictly necessary), such as session cookies used for the management of the shopping cart in e-commerce sites, perform functions without which it would not be possible for certain operations to be carried out. The use of technical cookies does not require users’ consent.

Technical cookies are similar (and, therefore, neither the users’ consent nor further compliance with the rules and regulations is required) to so-called “analytics” cookies that serve to monitor the use of the site by the users for purposes of optimisation thereof – if they are used directly by the first-party site (without, that is, the intervention of third parties). The same goes for analytics cookies designed and made available by third parties and used by the first-party site solely for statistical reasons, if suitable tools are used that reduce their ability to identify users (for example, by masking significant parts of the IP address) and the third party expressly undertakes not to cross-check the information contained in such cookies with other information it holds.

Profiling cookies serve to track the user’s browsing and to analyse his/her behaviour for marketing purposes, are intended to create profiles on the user and are used to send advertising messages aligned with the preferences expressed by the user during his/her browsing online. Such cookies may be installed on the user’s terminal only if he/she has granted his/her consent with the methods indicated in the Decree.
Based on their duration, cookies are divided into persistent, which stay stored on the user’s device until their expiration unless he/she removes them, and session cookies, which are not stored persistently on the user’s device and disappear when the browser is shut down. Usually, profiling cookies are persistent cookies.
