In compliance with the obligations deriving from national legislation (Legislative Decree no. 196 of 30 June 2003, Personal Data Protection Code) and Community legislation (European Regulation for the protection of personal data no. 679/2016, GDPR) and subsequent amendments, this website respects and protects the confidentiality of visitors and users, making every possible and proportionate effort not to infringe the rights of users.

This privacy policy applies exclusively to the online activities of this website and is valid for visitors/users of the website. It does not apply to information collected through channels other than this website. The purpose of the privacy policy is to provide maximum transparency regarding the information the website collects and how it uses it.

Legal basis of data processing

This site processes data on the basis of consent. By using or consulting this site, visitors and users explicitly approve this privacy policy and consent to the processing of their personal data in relation to the methods and purposes described below, including possible disclosure to third parties if necessary for the provision of a service.

The provision of data and therefore consent to the collection and processing of data is optional; the User may deny consent, and may revoke consent already provided at any time (via the Contact link on the appropriate page). However, denying consent may result in inability to provide certain services, and the experience of browsing the site may be impaired.

As of 25 May 2018 (the date on which the GDPR came into force), this site will process certain items of data on the basis of the legitimate interests of the data controller.

Data collected and purpose

Like all websites, this site also makes use of log files in which  information collected automatically during user visits is stored. The information collected may include the following: 

- indirizzo internet protocollo (IP);
- internet protocol (IP) address
- browser type and parameters of the device used to connect to the site;
- name of the internet service provider (ISP);
- date and time of visit;
- the visitor's source (referral) and exit web pages;
- possibly, the number of clicks.

This information is processed in automated form and collected in aggregate form only in order to verify the proper functioning of the site, and for security reasons (as of 25 May 2018, this information will be processed based on the legitimate interests of the data controller).
For security purposes (anti-spam filters, firewalls, virus detection), the automatically recorded data may also include personal data such as IP address, which could, under current legislation, be used to block attempts to damage the site or cause damage to other users, or in any case harmful or criminal activity. This data is never used for identification or profiling of the user, but only for the purpose of protecting the site and its users (as of 25 May 2018, this information will be processed according to the legitimate interests of the data controller).

If the site allows comments to be entered, or if the user requests specific services, the site will automatically detect and record certain user identification data, including the user's e-mail address. This data is understood to be voluntarily provided by the user at the time of requesting the service. By entering a comment or other information, the user expressly accepts the privacy policy, and in particular agrees that the content entered may be freely disseminated to third parties.

The data received will be used exclusively for the provision of the requested service, and only for the amount of time necessary for the provision of the service. Information that users of the site decide to make public through the services and tools made available to them is provided by the user knowingly and voluntarily, exempting this site from any liability for any breach of the law. It is up to the user to check that he or she has permission to enter personal data of third parties or content protected by national and international regulations.

The data collected by the site during its operation are used exclusively for the above-mentioned purposes and stored for the time strictly necessary to carry out the specified activities. In any case, the data collected by the site will never be provided to third parties, for any reason whatsoever, unless it is a legitimate request by a judicial authority, and only in the cases required by law.

Data used for security purposes (blocking attempts to damage the site) are kept for the amount of time necessary to fulfil the above-mentioned purpose.
