Privacy policy statement under EU Regulation 679/2016

General Data Protection Regulation

According to the regulations indicated, the data will be processed based on principles of correctness, lawfulness, transparency and protection of confidentiality and user’s rights.

This policy for users/visitors interacting with the website is provided in accordance with EU Regulation 2016/679 “on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data” and the regulations on cookies on the network and in particular the issue of the Provision of the Italian Data Protection Supervisor of 8 May 2014 “Identification of simplified methods for the privacy policy and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies” and the subsequent “Clarifications on the implementation of the regulations on cookies” issued on 5 June 2015.

The policy describes exclusively the methods of managing the website – with reference to the processing of personal data of users/visitors who consult it – and does not also refer to external websites that can be consulted by users by clicking on the links available on that website.

Additional information may be provided within specific sections.



1.1. Navigation data

During their normal operation, the computer systems and applications dedicated to the operation of this website acquire some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

These data are not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by their very nature they could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow the identification of users/visitors.

Data collected include IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the website, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, 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.) as well as other parameters relating to the operating system and computer environment of the user.

These data are processed, for the time necessary to achieve the purpose for which they are collected, to the sole aim of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the website (access to it) and to check its proper operation.

The data could be used to ascertain liability in the event of cyber crimes committed against the website.

1.2. Data provided voluntarily by the user

Sending email messages to the addresses indicated on this website (for example in order to request information) involves the acquisition of the sender’s address, as well as any other personal data included in the messages. Such data will be processed solely for the purpose of processing the request and communicated to third parties only in cases where this is necessary for the fulfilment of the request (e.g. delivery of the requested documentation).

If users/visitors are requested to provide their personal data, in order to access certain services, a specific and detailed policy on the processing of personal data in accordance with the regulations in force will be provided in advance on the pages relating to the individual services and will specify data processing limits, purposes and methods.

1.3. Cookies

Description of cookies

Cookies are small text files that are sent from the website visited by the user to the user’s device (usually to the browser), where they are stored so that the device can be recognised the next time the user visits the website. On each subsequent visit, cookies are sent back to the website by the user’s device.

Cookies can be “installed” (more precisely, stored and accessed), however, not only by the manager of the website visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also by a different website that “installs” cookies through the first website (third-party cookies) and is able to recognise them. This happens because on the visited website there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers different from that of the visited website.

Depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as technical cookies or profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are “installed” for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service”.

They are usually used to allow efficient navigation between pages, store users’ preferences (e.g. font size, language, country, etc.), store information on specific user configurations, manage login, etc. Some of these cookies (called ‘essential’ or ‘strictly necessary’) – such as session cookies used to manage the shopping basket in e-commerce websites – enable functions without which certain operations would not be possible.

The use of technical cookies does not require the user’s consent.

Then there are the so-called “analytics” or “analytical cookies”, which are used to monitor the use of the website by users for optimisation purposes. Since they are similar to technical cookies, for their installation neither users’ consent is required, nor satisfaction of any further regulatory requirements, as long as they are used directly by the first party of the website (i.e., without the intervention of any third parties). Also similar to technical cookies are analytical cookies created and made available by third parties and used by the first party of the website for mere statistical purposes, as long as suitable tools are adopted to reduce their identification power (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP address) and the third party expressly undertakes not to “cross-compare” the information contained in these cookies with other information available to it.

Profiling cookies are used to track user navigation and analyse users’ behaviour for marketing purposes and are designed to create user-related profiles. They are used to send advertising messages in line with the user’s preferences when surfing the web. These cookies may only be installed on the user’s terminal if the user has given his or her consent in the manner indicated in the above-mentioned Provision issued by the Italian Data Protection Supervisor.

Depending on their duration, cookies can be persistent cookies, which remain stored on the user’s device until they expire, unless removed by the user, and session cookies, which are not permanently stored on the user’s device and disappear when the browser is closed.

Profiling cookies are usually persistent cookies.
