The processing of users' personal data is carried out in full compliance with current legislation on the protection of personal data.
The Controller reserves the right to update the Policy at any time and to make users aware of it through the most appropriate means.
Our website is configured in such a way as to limit the collection and use of user identification data to a strict minimum, excluding processing in all cases where the intended purposes can be achieved by other means.
For the avoidance of doubt, it should be noted that this Policy shall be deemed to refer and apply only to the Website, without extending to pages or websites accessible through links and/or operated by third parties.
Therefore, users are invited to read the relevant privacy policies for a more detailed understanding of the processing carried out through such third-party websites.
Personal data are processed by the Controller within the limits and for the sole purpose of providing the services accessible through the Website, in particular to:
The IT systems and procedures that allow the operation of the Website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
These data are information that are not collected in order to be associated with individual data subjects, however, because of their very nature, they might enable them to be identified through processing and association with data held by third parties.
This category of data includes, by way of example, IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the Website, the addresses in Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the requested resources, the applicable timetable, the method used in submitting 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 (success, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and the user’s computer environment.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings that the websites visited by the user send to the computer and to any device used to access the Internet (such as smartphones and tablets), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same websites the very next time the same user visits.
Cookies can be stored in the device permanently and have a variable duration (so-called persistent cookies) or disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (so-called session cookies). Similarly, cookies can be installed by the website you are visiting (so-called first-party cookies) or the can be installed by other websites (so-called third-party cookies) and can be used for different purposes, such as performing computer authentication, session tracking and storing information on the activities of the user accessing a given website.
Depending on the purpose of use, it is possible to distinguish the cookies installed on the Website into the following categories: technical, functionality and analytics cookies.
TYPES OF COOKIES
Technical cookies are essential for the correct functioning of the Website and to offer the user a smooth and unhindered browsing experience (e.g. to allow access to restricted areas to be maintained for as long as the user remains on the Website), as well as to correctly provide the services that the users request during their browsing.
They are therefore tools used by the Controller to ensure, for example, efficient navigation, session stability, log-in permanence and pre-selection of the selected navigation country. They also serve to remember the choices made by the user concerning the display of certain elements of the page, such as information and communication banners.
As previously stated, the use of technical cookies and the performance of processing related to them does not require the user's prior consent. The legal basis allowing the processing of the relevant data is in fact the performance of services requested directly by the data subject (Art. 6.1, b) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR).
These cookies are aimed solely at improving and speeding up navigation on the Website, by storing specific choices made by the user (such as language preferences, those relating to user authentication for the duration of the session or those relating to the enjoyment of multimedia content on the Website). As these cookies are installed in response to services directly requested by the user, they do not require the consent of the latter. For this reason, they will be treated by the Controller in the same way as technical cookies.
Please note, however, that in certain limited cases, such as when the functionality of the cookie itself exceeds the duration of the user's browsing session, the user may be asked to activate the cookie by means of a positive action, such as the selection of a 'flag' (e.g. the functionality that allows remembering the user's login credentials), so that the choice can be stored for a subsequent visit of the Website by the user.
For this specific type of cookies, users are asked to express their consent. In particular, third-party cookies collect information on how users use the Website (number of visitors, pages visited, time spent, conversions, etc.). This information is used by the Controller in particular to improve the functionality of the Website, making it possible, for example, to record any errors detected by users and thus ensure a more fluid and immediate navigation. As they collect data only in aggregate form, so as not to make users identifiable in any way, these cookies are equated to technical ones. However, if such cookies are implemented alongside other functionalities that do not allow the possible identification of the person concerned to be excluded, their installation will be subject to the users’ prior consent.
This website does NOT use analytics cookies.
HOW TO DISABLE COOKIES FROM THE BROWSER
Users can also manage cookies directly via the settings of their browser according to the procedures indicated in the following links:
• Internet Explorer
• Mozilla Firefox
• Google Chrome
• Apple Safari
Further ways of preventing the installation of cookies on the users’ terminal consists in the possibility of: i) rejecting third-party cookies by default, by exploiting certain functions of certain browsers; ii) activating the 'Do Not Track' option (automatic interruption of the collection of certain browsing data) available in most of the latest generation browsers; iii) activating the 'private browsing' mode.
It should be borne in mind, however, that deactivating cookies may complicate navigation or prevent you from moving freely from one page to another, and thus making full use of all the features of the Website.
Data voluntarily provided by the user
The user's submission of any personal data such as, for example, name, surname or e-mail address, entails their inevitable acquisition by the Controller and their subsequent processing in order to respond to requests received and/or to provide the service requested.
Therefore, users who prefer not to have their data collected by the Controller are advised not to submit any requests or, at the very least, to provide as little personal data as possible.
All personal data are processed mainly by electronic means and methods, however, processing by paper means is not excluded a priori.
The processing shall be carried out exclusively by persons duly authorised to do so in writing by the Controller, in compliance with the provisions of the applicable legislation.
The same data will be stored in a form that allows the user to be identified solely for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which such data were originally collected and, in any case, within the limits of the law.
Personal data will not be disclosed nor communicated to third parties other than with the express and specific consent of the data subject or unless necessary to provide a service requested by the data subject.
It is understood that users' personal data may be disclosed to third parties, such as the police, whenever this is required by law or by an order of a competent authority.
The Controller shall adopt all necessary security measures in order to minimise the risks of destruction or loss, even accidental, of the data themselves, of unauthorised access or processing that is not permitted or does not comply with the purposes indicated in this document.
The Controller shall provide confirmation of the existence or non-existence of personal data concerning the user, even if not yet registered, by communicating such data in an intelligible form, if the latter requests it.
Furthermore, according to current legislation, the data subject has the right to:
