We are committed to protecting your privacy. Therefore, we have prepared this policy statement to disclose the information gathering and dissemination practices for our website.
What data do we collect?
We do not collect any data over the WordPress platform from regular visitors (we do not use services like Facebook Pixel or Google Id). Our site has Google Recaptcha’s services and Google Fonts, but we do not process any data over those services.
However, our server keeps records from user’s IP (anonymous data), browsers, country of connection, device, and language.
How do we collect your data?
We do collect your name and email address to fulfill the newsletters and to contact you for additional information, if necessary.
Personal data are processed with IT tools whilst respecting confidentiality requirements and protection measures envisaged by currently applicable rules. Specific security measures are observed to prevent the loss of data, illegal or incorrect usage, and unauthorized access.
How will we use your data?
We do collect mailing and email address information primarily to inform our users about upcoming events. We do not rent or sell our mailing lists to commercial businesses. We do not trade email addresses.
The newsletter subscription can be easily removed through a link «unsubscribe».
On our website, data are supplied voluntarily by the User for the Services requested: if to access the services/information offered, the user voluntarily supplies any of their personal data, collected through specific formats present on the website, this action entails the acquisition of said data on the part of the data controller to supply the requested services. In particular, sending newsletters to inform the users about upcoming events; the data necessary for the assessment of this action are collected.
Some data requested in the formats are necessary to supply the service and they are marked with an asterisk. Other data are fully optional and can be entered by the user for a more complete or customized service or to receive informative messages or to investigate interests and personal information or habits or consumer choices.
The purposes of data processing are, therefore, depending on the requested services:
• Performance of the service requested by the user;
• Communication with the client about the requested service;
• Prevention of frauds and abuses damaging the website;
The legal basis for the processing of data is the fulfillment of contract obligations if and as requested by the user as well as for optional services performed with the consent of the data subject.
In addition to what is specified below for cookies, the information systems and software procedures governing the operation of this website acquire, during normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects but which, by its nature, could enable the identification of users utilizing processing and associations with data held by third parties.
This category of data includes the IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by the users connecting to the website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and the IT environment of the User.
These data are used to obtain anonymous statistical information concerning the use of the website and of checking its correct operation.
These data could be used to establish responsibility in case of cybercrimes against the website.
The purposes of processing these data are, therefore: enabling the operation of the website and the performance of services requested by the user; controlling and improving the operation of the website; obtaining and using statistical information about the use of the website; establishing responsibility in case of alleged cybercrimes.
Therefore, the legal basis for the processing of data is the legitimate interest of the data controller in performing and improving the website services supplied.
Apart from what is specified for navigation data, the user is free to supply the personal data indicated in the forms used to request services of the website. Failure to supply data foreseen as mandatory, though, entails that the requested service cannot be performed. On the other hand, failure to supply data indicated as optional may entail the supply of an incomplete service and the impossibility for the data controller to perform further activities.
No data deriving from the web service is communicated or disseminated, except in aggregate form (website access statistics) and therefore anonymous.
