2 TYPE OF DATA PROCESSED AND PURPOSE OF PROCESSING

2.1   WEB BROWSING DATA

During their normal functioning, the computing systems and software procedures used by our website collect some personal data, the transmission of which is inherent to the use of internet communication protocols. The aforementioned data are not collected with the purpose of being associated to data subjects. However, via processing and association with data held by third parties, the aforementioned data may make it possible to identify data subjects. This category includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computer used by data subjects to connect to the site, URI (uniform resource identifier) format web addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to send the request to the server, the size of the response file, the numeric code indicating the status of the response from the server (completed, error, etc.) and other parameters relative to the user’s operating system and computer environment.

 

These data are used to:

obtain anonymous statistical information about the use of the site;

manage and control the way in which the site is used, identify anomalies and/or misuse;

determine liability in case of cybercrime against the site and/or third parties.

The processing of such data is legitimated by the need to make the site’s features function properly following access by the user.

 

2.2   DATA PROVIDED BY THE USER

The collection of personal data may occur voluntarily via the sending of an email to the addresses listed on the website and/or through forms that can be compiled on the website. This includes the Controller’s collection of sender email addresses, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any potential personal data requested or transmitted voluntarily within an email message.

The personal data collected in such a manner shall be used by the Controller to:

  1. provide information and/or services through company contacts and any subsequent correlated communications;

The legal basis of processing is the execution of a contract that the data subject is party to or the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted upon his/her request.  The provision of personal data is required for the above purposes.

  1. download technical documents and policies, such as product catalogues;

The legal basis of processing is the execution of a contract that the data subject is party to or the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted upon his/her request.  The provision of personal data is required for the above purposes.

  1. send, via email, marketing messages about the services and products supplied by the company and/or third parties;

The legal basis for processing is the data subject’s freely-provided consent. The provision of personal data is optional and the use of said data is dependent upon the explicit consent of the data subject. The refusal to provide the aforementioned data will make it impossible for the Controller to send the newsletter to the data subject.

2.3 COOKIES

Thanks to cookies, a website ‘remembers’ user actions and preferences (e.g.: login data, preferred language, character/font size, other display settings, etc.) so that these preferences don’t have to be set each time the user returns to the website or browses to a page within it. Cookies are thus used for digital authentication, to monitor web sessions and to save information about the activities of users who access a website. They may contain a unique identifying code that makes it possible to track the user while browsing within the website itself for statistical and advertising purposes.

Some operations cannot be completed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are technically necessary for the site to function.

When browsing a website, cookies from sites or web servers other than the one being visited may be stored on the user’s computer or mobile device (called ‘third-party cookies’).

One common example of third-party cookies is Google Analytics. You can consult Google’s privacy policy here: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html

 

There are two macro categories of cookies:

 

  1. REQUIRED COOKIES

These are the cookies used exclusively to communicate via a digital communication network, or to the degree strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these cookies are absolutely necessary for a site to function or to carry out an activity requested by a user.

 

No prior consent from the user is necessary to install these cookies, without prejudice to the obligation to provide the user with the policy. Required cookies will thus always be used and sent, unless the user modifies the settings of his/her browser.

 

They can be divided into:

1. transient or session cookies, which ensure the normal browsing and use of the website (making it possible, for example, to log in to reserved areas);

2. analytic cookies, integrated with the required cookies when used directly by the site’s manager to gather information, in an aggregated form, on the number of users and how they visit the site, and to understand what parts or elements of it are most enjoyed by users. 

3. functional cookies, which let the user browse according to a series of selected criteria (such as language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the services offered.

Required cookies may be:

  • persistent: once the browser is closed, they are not deleted; instead they remain until a pre-set date
  • session: these cookies are deleted each time the browser is closed

 

  1. PROFILING COOKIES

Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles relative to the user and are used to send advertising messages that match the preferences shown by the user while browsing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that such cookies may have in relation to the private sphere of users, European and Italian law require that the user be properly informed of the use of said cookies and thereby give his/her explicit consent for their use.

 

HOW TO MANAGE COOKIES

At any time, users may reject all or some of the cookies used by this website simply by selecting, within his/her browser, the settings that disable them.

Each browser has specific configuration instructions. More information on the procedures to follow to disable cookies can be found on the website of your browser’s provider.
