Type of data processed and purpose of the processing

1. Navigation data and their conservation
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this site acquire, in normal operation, some data that are implicitly transmitted in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects, but due to its nature could, even through processing with data held by third parties, allow users / visitors to be identified (eg IP address, computer domain names used by users who connect to the S ito, the code indicating the response status given by the server, type of browser, time indications of the beginning and end of the browsing session, any identification of the account and the activities carried out on the Site, etc. ).

This data is used only for statistical information and to check the correct functioning of the Site. The same data is stored for up to six months, subject to the additional storage for any need of checking computer crimes against the Site or to fulfill specific regulatory obligations.

No data deriving from the web service will be disseminated.

2. Cookies
2.1 General information about cookies
Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send their terminals (usually the browser), where they are stored before being transmitted back to the same sites every subsequent visit through med th terminal. In addition, each site may allow the transmission of so-called "third-party" cookies, ie those generated by internet sites other than the one that the user is visiting (through objects in it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains).

Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (ie temporary ones and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser ) and in persistent cookie (ie those that remain stored on the terminal until they expire or cancellation by the user).

Cookies have different purposes. They are primarily used for the transmission of communication or to provide the service requested by the user; more precisely, they allow to enable and optimize the operation of the website, perform IT authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the browsing experience of users, for example by keeping active the connection to restricted areas while browsing through the pages of the site without the need -to re-enter User-Id and password and storing specific information about the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used).

The aforementioned cookies are called " technical " (for their use the user's consent is not required), as without them some of the above operations could not be completed or would be more complex and / or less secure.

Otherwise, if cookies are used for further purposes, typically for behavioral analysis and sending personalized promo-advertising messages (so-called " profiling " cookies ) or even just for obtaining, through third-party services, information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site (so-called " analytics cookies " ), the user's consent is required. In fact, prior to the sending of these cookies on the terminal, in accordance with current legislation (Privacy Code and general provision of the Guarantor of 8 May 2014), when you access the home page or other page of the site, it is immediately shown in the foreground a banner with an initial brief information on the use of cookies and on the collection of consent, which the user can lend by continuing the navigation by selecting an element below the banner or by closing the banner itself.

In any case, cookies can be read or modified only by the website that generated them; they can not be used to retrieve any data from the user's terminal and can not transmit computer viruses . Some of the functions of cookies can also be performed by other technologies; therefore, in the context of this web privacy policy, the term "cookies" refers to cookies and all similar technologies.
