This information is not collected to be associated to identified data subjects or to identify users.
The data might be used to ascertain responsibilities in case of possible IT crimes against the Website.

The processing of the above-specified data has the purpose of ensuring the correct functioning and use of our website, through: a) performance evaluations of the Website during the browsing session, aimed at monitoring and improving the services we offer; b) analysis of the browsing data, in aggregate form, for statistical purposes and to keep track of the behavior of users, without this entailing profiling activity, (using Google Analytics functionalities).

We use technical cookies, both first party and third party, for data processing on our Website.
A “cookie” is a small quantity of data that are sent to the browser of the user by a Web server and that are subsequently stored on the hard drive of his or her computer.
The use of so-called session cookies is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (represented by random numbers generated by the server), necessary to enable the secure and efficient exploration of the website, and to the acquisition of data to save the browsing preferences of the user (e.g., setting the language, managing statistics), in order to optimize the experience on the Website. Session cookies used in this Website avoid recourse to other IT techniques potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of users’ browsing and do not allow acquisition of personal data identifying the user.
Social buttons/widgets (sharing cookies).
Our Website includes special “buttons” (called “social buttons/widgets”) that represent the icons of social networks (Facebook and Instagram). These buttons allow the users that are browsing the website to interact with a “click” directly with the social networks there represented. In such case the social network obtains the data concerning the user visit.
“Sharing” (or social network) cookies are used to enable the user to interact with websites through his or her social account and are useful, for example, to express appreciation and to share it with contacts.
The presence of plug-ins entails the transmission of cookies from and to all websites managed by third parties. Management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the respective privacy policies, to which You may refer.
If You access one of our web pages, equipped with the plug-in, the Internet browser directly connects to the third-party server and the plug-in is shown on the screen thanks to the connection with the browser. The plug-in might disclose to the third-party server which pages have been browsed by the user.
5- Disclosure and dissemination of data
The entities that may become aware of the personal data are our employees and collaborators, who take care of the administrative management of the Web page and of relations with users / customers. The company taking care of the management of the Website may, possibly, become aware of the personal data, on the occasion of assistance / maintenance interventions.
The data are never transferred to, or in any case acquired by, third party entities located or in any case operating in countries outside the European Union, with the exception of the following: Cloudflare, Inc., limited to reverse proxy services and to Content Delivery Network and caching functionalities; Google, LLC, limited to Google Analytics functionalities; Facebook, Inc limited to the functionalities for social sharing of Facebook and Instagram and to the Pixel usage for remarketing (all the companies are included in the so called Privacyshield List //www.privacyshield.gov/welcome: thus, they guarantee an appropriate level of protection, according to Article 45 of the Regulation).
Where needed, should we have an obligation to report a crime or in any case the need to pursue a legitimate interest to exercise or defend a legal claim on our part, the data of users might be disclosed to the judicial Authority or to police forces.
Apart from the cases just specified, personal data will not be disclosed to third parties and/or in any way disseminated outside the context of the European Union.
6- Data retention periods
Browsing data are deleted immediately after the processing, at the end of the browsing session (closure of the browser).
Data provided voluntarily by users (by sending e-mails), or by fax or by telephone, will be stored for the 30 days following delivery to users of the requested information, unless further storage of the data is necessary to comply with legal obligations, or the parties enter into another relationship.
Data processed through third party cookies (including sharing cookies) are stored for the period of time provided by the operators, according to the respective privacy policies.
Facebook cookies used for remarketing are applied for a maximum period of ….. days.
Data processed through the use of Google Analytics cookies are stored for 26 months from their collection.
