Navigation data.

The IT 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 the Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by their very nature could, through data processing and in association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the site, the addresses in the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) notation 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 (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s computer environment.

These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.

Our website uses cookies like almost all the other websites. Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user (but also other sites or webservers) send and record on his computer (or mobile device), to be then retransmitted to the same sites (or webservers), the next visit of those, thus sending information.

Cookies are now essential tools as they allow modern sites to work at their best, allowing maximum customization, interaction and fluency in navigation. But they can also be used to monitor user browsing and then send advertising messages associated with this.

Cookies can be:

  • Session cookies (if they expire when the browser is closed) or permanent cookies (if they remain until the expiration of a term, that could be even years);
  • first-party or third-party cookies (in this second case they are set by a site or a webserver different from the one that the user is visiting at that time);
  • technical cookies (sometimes needed for a complete or better use of the site) or profiling cookies (aimed to create a user profile then used to send advertising messages associated with the preferences expressed during previous navigations).

The Garante per la protezione dei dati personali authority considers technical cookies the session cookies, the functional cookies and – only under certain conditions – the analytics cookies. The Privacy Guarantor, in the provision of 8 May 2014, specified that analytics cookies can be assimilated to technical cookies only if used for the purpose of optimizing the site directly by the owner of the site itself, which can collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site.
