This Privacy Policy describes the methods of acquisition, use, transmission, storage and protection of personal data and is provided pursuant to art. 13 of EU Regulation 679/2016 (hereinafter “GDPR”) to all people who connect to this website.

Pursuant to art. 4, no. 1 of the GDPR, “personal data” refers to “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

By using our Services, you are agreeing to the conditions of this Privacy Policy.

The privacy policy is inspired by the recommendations of the “Article 29 Working Party” of Directive no. 95/46 for the personal data protection in order to identify a number of minimum requisites for the collection of personal data online, and, specifically, for the methods, times and kind of information data controllers should provide users with when they access web pages, regardless of the reasons.

This privacy policy has been prepared based on the principles of lawfulness, correctness, transparency, proportionality and relevance, as well as in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR.

Your personal data will be processed and stored for the time necessary to carry out the purposes for which it was collected.

Furthermore, the Data Controller may be obliged to retain personal data for a longer period in accordance with a legal obligation or by an order of the supervisory authority. In any case, the management of information collection is configured, from the outset, in such a way so as to minimise the use of the data.

In relation to the purposes indicated above, processing will be carried out using IT and online tools, with organisational methods and with logic strictly related to the purposes indicated and, in any case, in such a way so as to guarantee the security and confidentiality of the data.

Processing may be carried out on behalf of the Data Controller, in compliance with the same methods and criteria given above, by categories of data processors and/or sub-processors involved in organising the Site (administrative, commercial and marketing staff, legal services, system administrators) or by external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, couriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communication agencies), which may be appointed for the purpose.

Usage data
