a. Browsing data

In normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used to operate the Site acquire certain Personal Data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information not collected for association with identified data subjects, but information which, by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, permit the identification of users.

This data is used in the form of server side “logs” for the sole purpose of obtaining information on the use of the Site and to check its correct operation, to permit – given the architecture of the systems used – the correct provision of services, security and to ascertain liability in the event of possible cyber-crime against the Site or third parties; this data is processed in accordance with the GDPR and kept for the time strictly necessary to achieve the aforementioned purpose.

Definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation

Through the use of cookies, sites remember your actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) to avoid having to enter them again when you return to the site or browse its pages. Cookies are used for mainly for authentication purposes, session monitoring and to save information on the activities of users visiting the site and may also contain a unique identification code able to track of the activities of users browsing the site itself, for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, you may also receive cookies from sites or web servers different to the one you are currently at (known as “third-party” cookies). Some operations would be impossible without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are technically necessary for the site to operate.

According to current legislation, the use of cookies does not always require your consent. In particular, “technical cookies”, cookies 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 (for example, for authentication, language preferences), do not require this consent. In short, these cookies are either essential for the operation of the site, or necessary for the activities requested by the user.
