Personal information collected through the site in question takes place at the registered offices, and is handled solely by technical personnel employed by the company in charge of processing.
The personal data collected through the website is processed in order to respond to information requests, make contact with potential customers, and send newsletters. No personal information that is acquired through this site is disclosed to third parties.

Information systems used to operate the site acquire, during the normal course of operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the communication protocols of the Internet. This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified subjects, but by its very nature could, through processing and combinations with information held by third parties, allow the identification of users.

This category of data includes the IP addresses and domain names of the computers used by the users who access the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the data response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters concerning the operating system and the computer environment of the user.

This data is used for the sole purpose of tracking traffic generated by the website, obtaining anonymous statistical information on site usage and checking the proper operation of the site. Such data may also be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.

The voluntary sending of e-mails to the addresses posted on this site entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, which is necessary to answer any requests, and of any other personal data included in the message. The voluntary compilation of any web forms with minimal personal data involves the collection, in the form of a database, of the data entered by the user and the retention of such data until the party concerned requests deletion of the same (under article 7 of the Privacy Code).

The use of cookies (session, analytics or functionality), is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) which are necessary in order to enable safe and efficient site navigation, allowing, for example, the user to browse according to selected criteria (e.g., language, selected products) in order to improve the service provided to the user. Cookies are used instead of other computer methods, considered potentially prejudicial for users’ right to privacy, and they do not collect personal identified information from website users.
