Browsing data

To maximize your experience in using the website, the IT systems and applications designated for the operation of this website detect, during the course of their ordinary operation, certain data – the transmission of which is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols – not associated with directly identifiable users, which is collected by means of technical cookies.

The data collected include IP addresses of computers used by the users connecting to the site, the URI – Uniform Resource Identifier – addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to send the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (completed successfully, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment.

All this information is directly from you via the website: you can choose not to provide us with your personal information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the features on the website. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact us.

The sending of personal, non-mandatory data also when corresponding with the e-mail addresses indicated on the website on an optional, explicit and voluntary basis means that the address of the sender is then acquired, this being necessary in order to respond to the request, together with any other personal data included in the message.

What type of cookies do we use?

There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website only uses technical cookies, and more specifically navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal site navigation and use (enabling for example, coordination of the forms making up the site pages or correlation of the pages visited during a given working session).

How to manage cookies

Technical cookies do not explicitly require your approval, and are therefore automatically accepted by you. However, you can set your browser not to accept cookies, even though, in a few cases, some of our website features may not function as a result.

The use of session cookies is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (made up of server-generated random numbers) and of data related to the software use necessary to allow for the safe and efficient browsing of the website: the session variables may avoid recourse being made to IT techniques that may adversely affect the confidentiality of the user’s browsing experience and do not allow us to acquire personal data that identify the user. The session cookies are not stored for any considerable length of time on the user’s device. They are registered locally for lengths of time set as a function of session variables (the values of which, stored on the fixed disk, can in any case be erased).
