Type of data processed and purpose of the processing
1. Navigation data and their conservation
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate the Site acquire, during normal operation, some personal data that are implicitly transmitted in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but due to its nature could, through processing with data held by third parties, allow identification of users / visitors (eg IP address, domain names of computers used by the users who connect to the site, the code indicating the response status given by the server, type of browser, time indications for the start and end of the browsing session, any identification of the account and the activities carried out by the Site, etc.). These data are used only for statistical information and to check the correct functioning of the Site. The data are stored for a maximum of six months, without prejudice to further storage for any investigation of computer crimes or specific regulatory obligations. No data deriving from the web service will be distributed.
2.1 General information about cookies
Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to their device (usually through the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at each subsequent visit via the same device. Furthermore, each site can allow the transmission of “third-party” cookies, ie those generated by internet sites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects present in it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains). Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (ie the temporary ones and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser) and persistent cookies (ie those that remain stored on the terminal until their expiration or cancellation by the user).
Cookies have different purposes. They are primarily used for the transmission of communication or to provide the service requested by the user; more precisely, they allow to enable and optimize the operation of the website, perform IT authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the browsing experience of users, for example by keeping active the connection to restricted areas while browsing through the pages of the site without the need to re-enter User-Id and password and storing specific information about the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used).
The aforementioned cookies are called “technical”, as without them some of the above operations could not be completed or would be more complex and / or less secure. Precisely for this reason, user consent is not required for their use.
