The Personal Data processed through the Site are as follows:

a. Navigation data

During their normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this Site acquire certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols.This information is not collected with the intention of linking it to an identifiable user, but, by its own very nature, could lead to the identification of users by processing it in association with data held by third parties.This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by persons who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) ​​of requested resources, the time of request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file received in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the reply given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters regarding the user's operating system and computer environment.These data are only used to obtain anonymous statistical information about website usage and to check its correct functioning; they are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the website: currently, except for this possibility, data concerning web contacts are not kept for more than seven days.

With respect to these hypotheses, you are the independent data controller, assuming all the legal obligations and responsibilities.In this sense, you are conferred with the widest indemnity with respect to any objection, claim, request for compensation for damage from processing, etc. that should reach the owner from third parties whose personal data have been processed through your spontaneous submission in violation of the rules on the protection of applicable personal data.In any case, if you provide or otherwise process Personal Data of third parties in the use of the Site, you guarantee from now on - assuming all related liability - that this particular hypothesis of processing is based on an appropriate legal basis pursuant to art. 6 of the Regulations that legitimises the processing of the information in question.

Definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and record on their personal computer or any other device, even mobile, to then be re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit.Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the user's actions and preferences (such as login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be re-indicated when the user returns to visit said site or browse from one page to another.Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing information regarding the activities of users accessing a site, and may also contain a unique identification code that allows for tracking the user's navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes.During navigation on a site, the user can also receive, on his/her computer or mobile device, cookies from websites or web servers other than the one he/she is visiting (so-called "third-party" cookies).Some operations may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the functioning of said site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain in the user's computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user's equipment until a predetermined deadline.

According to the legislation in force in Italy, the user's express consent is not always required for the use of cookies.In particular, "technical cookies", namely those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not require such consent.In other words, these are cookies that are essential for the operation of the site or are necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

  • browsing or session cookies (to authenticate the user),
  • functional cookies, that allow the user to browse based on a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
