Types of data processed:
a) Navigation data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this Website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the Website and to check its correct functioning. Furthermore, the navigation data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the Website.
b) Data provided voluntarily by the user
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of e-mails to the addresses indicated on this Website entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.
What are cookies and their function
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their terminals where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same websites on the next visit. This information allows you to customize navigation on websites: for example, they allow you to store user choices, such as language, currency, preferred search criteria and therefore facilitate subsequent visits to the website. Very often they are necessary for the normal functioning of a website and allow you to take advantage of some of the essential features of the site on which the user navigates.
Cookies are divided into:
a) Technical cookies (which do not require the user’s prior consent): they are used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the supplier of an information society service explicitly requested by the contractor or by the user to provide this service. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website.
Technical cookies can be sub-divided into:
– navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of a website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); they are in fact necessary for the proper functioning of the website;
– analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website, in order to improve the performance of a website;
– functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.
b) Profiling cookies (which require the user’s prior consent): these are cookies aimed specifically at collecting data on the visitor’s tastes, habits, personal choices, allowing the creation of user profiles. These cookies are usually used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net.
First or third party cookies
Cookies can be:
a) “first party” when they are installed on the user’s terminal directly by the manager of the website the user is visiting;
b) “third party” when they are installed on the user’s terminal by third parties with respect to the website visited by the user.
Cookie retention time
Cookies have a duration according to their expiration date (or by a specific action such as closing the browser) set at the time of installation.
Cookies can be:
a) temporary cookies (session cookies): they are used to store temporary information, allow you to connect the actions performed during a specific session and are removed from the computer when the browser is closed;
b) persistent cookies (permanent cookies): they are used to store information, such as the login name and password, so as to avoid the user having to type them again each time they visit a specific site. These remain stored on your computer even after you close your browser.
Cookies used by this Website
