Browsing data
With regards to cookies, the Data Controller states that reference should be made to the provisions set out below; and informs users that the computer systems and software procedures put in place to enable this website to function, during normal use, acquire certain personal data, the transfer of which is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. This is information which has not been collected in order to be associated to identified data subjects, but which by its very nature could, through processing and associations with data held by third parties, make it possible to identify users. IP addresses or the domain names of computers used by users connecting to the site, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses for requested resources, the time of requests, the method used to submit the request to the server, the dimension of the file obtained as a response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error etc) and other parameters relating to the operating system and to the user's computer environment fall into this category. This data is used in order to obtain information on site use and on preferences shown by users within the framework of their online browsing activity and in order to check that the system functions correctly. The data that is collected could be used for establishing liability in the event of any computer crimes against the site; subject to this eventuality, the data on web contacts shall be kept for the timeframe strictly required for the Data Controller's purpose.

Data provided directly by the user
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated in the site entails subsequent acquisition of the sender's address; this is necessary in order to reply to requests, in addition to any other personal data included in the mail (such as for example when information or clarification is requested, writing to the email addresses present on the site). Specific summary information statements will be progressively reported or viewed in the pages of the site prepared for particular services subject to a request, which may entail the processing of personal data (such as, including but not limited to, the provision of personal data by means of forms or similar procedures, as may be contemplated in sections of this site, means that data provided are processed in order to meet users requests; such as for example when curriculum vitae are sent speculatively in order to put oneself forward as a candidate).


Some general information is provided below on cookies in order to assist understanding of the Data Controller's extended privacy policy statement regarding this matter. Cookies are strings of small-size text which the sites visited by users send to the terminal (usually to the browser) where they are stored before being sent back to the same sites on the user's subsequent visit. When browsing a site, a user may also receive cookies on his terminal which are sent by other sites or by web servers (being known as "third parties"), where a number of elements may reside (such as for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains, present on the site which the user is visiting. Cookies, many of which are usually present in users' browsers, sometimes remaining for a long time, are used for different purposes: performing IT authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server etc. In its Decision of 8 May 2014 governing the matter the Data Protection Authority identified two macro categories: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies.

Technical cookies are those which are used solely for purposes of "ensuring the transmission of a communication to an electronic communications network, or to the extent that it is strictly necessary, to the provider of an information service which is explicitly requested by the contracting party or by the user in order to provide such service" (refer to article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the Data Controller or by the website manager. They can be subdivided into browsing cookies or session cookies, which guarantee normal browsing or use of the website (for example making it possible to make a purchase or to authenticate oneself in order to access private areas); analytics cookies, treated the same as technical cookies when used directly by the site manager in order to gather information in an aggregate manner, on the number of users and how these uses visit the site; function cookies allowing users to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example the language, products selected for purchasing) in order to improve the service provided to the user. For the installation of these cookies there is an obligation to provide the privacy policy statement pursuant to article 13 of the Code, whilst the users' prior consent is not requested.

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles relating to users and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by users as they browse online. Due to their possible invasive nature, affecting users' private spheres, European and Italian legislation provides that users must be suitably informed as to the use of same and must express their valid consent (see article 122, I paragraph, of the Code).
