Data controller and DPO


The categories of data that are processed

The data processed by the Data Controller are “personal data” (Art. 4.1 of the GDPR) provided by you.

  • Any contact data (IP address, e-mail address, and similar data) and navigation data.

Processing of data useful for navigation purposes

The computer 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 Internet communication protocols.

This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

Among the information that can be collected we have IP addresses, the type of browser or operating system used, addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation, the domain name and addresses of the websites from which the request was made. access or exit (referring/exit pages), the time at which the request was made to the server, the method used and information on the response obtained, further information on the user’s navigation on the site (see also the section relevant to cookies) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment.

This same data could also be used to identify and ascertain responsibility in the event of any computer crimes against the site.

Use of cookies

This information may be about you, your preferences or your device and is largely used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information usually does not directly identify you, but it can provide a more personalized web experience. Because we respect your right to protect your personal data, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. Click on “Cookie Settings” and on the headings of the different cookie categories to find out more and change the default settings.

What are Cookies? And what cookies do we use?

Cookies are small text strings that a website can send, while browsing, to your device (be it a PC, a notebook, a smartphone, a tablet; they are normally stored directly on the browser used) . The same website that transmitted them can then read and record the cookies found on the same device to obtain various types of information. Which? For each type of cookie there is a well-defined role.

How many types of cookies are there?

There are two fundamental macro-categories, with different characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are generally necessary for the correct functioning of the website and to allow navigation; without them you may not be able to view pages correctly or use some services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website, or to memorize language settings, display settings, and so on.

The technical cookies used on this site can be further distinguished into:

  • Analytical cookies

    These cookies are necessary for the functioning of the site, with particular reference to normal navigation and its use, and cannot be deactivated in our systems. They are usually set only in response to actions you take that constitute a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in, or filling out forms. You can set your browser to block these cookies, but some or all parts of the site will not work as a result. These cookies do not store personal information.

  • Functionality cookies
    These cookies allow the site to provide advanced functionality and customization, which allow navigation according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchases) in order to improve the service provided. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.
    Profiling cookies have the task of profiling the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during navigation

  • Profiling cookies
    Profiling cookies can be used, also by third parties, to build a profile of your interests and show or send you relevant adverts on this and other sites.

The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free consent which the Site acquires in accordance with the Guarantor’s Provision of 8 May 2014 et seq. mm. ii.

Cookies can be classified as:

  • first-part cookies, i.e. cookies generated and managed directly by the manager of the website on which the user is browsing.
  • third-part cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (as a rule, by virtue of a contract between the owner of the website and the third part).
