Navigation data

The IT systems and software procedures utilised to run this Site acquire personal data as part of their normal functioning; the transmission of such data is implicit in internet communication protocols. Such data is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but the nature of this data could enable users to be identified by means of processing operations and by association with data held by third parties.

This category includes IP addresses or the domain names of user’s computers, addresses in URI/URL (Uniform Resource Identifier/Locator) notation of requested resources, the time the request is made, 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 server's response (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the user's operating system and computer environment.

Such data, which are required in order to benefit from the web services, are also processed for the following purposes:

  • to obtain statistical information on the use of the services (most visited pages, number of visitors per hour or day, geographical areas of origin, etc.);

  • to control the correct operation of the services offered.

Navigation data are stored only for the period required in order to provide the services (without prejudice to the requirements of the Judicial Authorities in investigating offences).

Data provided voluntarily by the user

The optional, explicit and voluntary transmission of messages to the undersigned's contact addresses, the transmission of private messages to institutional profiles/pages on social media (if this possibility is provided for), and the completion and submission of forms on the aforementioned websites all involve the acquisition of the sender's contact data, which are necessary in order to reply to such messages and forms, as well as all personal data included in the communications themselves.

Cookies present on the website

The use of session cookies (non-persistent) is strictly limited to what is necessary in order to ensure a safe, secure and efficient website browsing experience.

Data processing methods

Personal data are processed using electronic or automated means, applying organisational and processing logics that are strictly related to the designated purposes, and in such a way as to guarantee the data's security, integrity and confidentiality, thus reducing the risk of data loss or destruction, prohibited access, unauthorised modification and disclosure.
