b. Browsing data

That is the computer data, whose transmission is implicit and automatically connected to the use of internet communication protocols, that the information systems and software procedures used to operate this SITE acquire in their normal operation; these data are not collected to be associated with individual identified subjects but which, by their very nature, could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified (see below paragraph on cookies).

2. Nature of the provision of data and legal basis

The provision of your data, with the exception of navigation data, referred to in paragraph 1 letter b) (cookies), is optional and self-determined by the user who, therefore, certifies the completeness and its legitimate treatment.

3. Purposes of the treatment (art. 5 and art. 13, paragraph 1, lett. c) of the GDPR)

With your consent the data may be used for profiling purposes (see below “profiling cookies”) conducted automatically by collecting information about the navigation you do while accessing and using the services of the service and, by means of statistical correlation algorithms, link them to the same information from other users to identify common traits and group similar ones within classes of interest. By assigning your browser to a class of interest, our systems will then be able to offer you content that is closer to your tastes and present advertisements that better meet your needs and better target the interests of advertisers by reducing the level of disruption to the fruition (Profiling Purposes).

With regard to the registration to our Blog, the personal data that you will provide us at the time of registration, such as User ID and password, name, surname and e-mail address, will be processed for the sole purpose of providing the requested service, or those treatments related to information on the activities of the site, the ability to read and comment publicly on the articles on the site and respond to posts by members.

4. Methods of processing (art. 5 and art. 13, paragraph 2, lett. a), of the GDPR)


The processing of personal data collected is “in a lawful, correct and transparent manner” and can be carried out with or without the aid of electronic or automated tools, even through managers or agents specifically authorized to do so (the list of names of the companies responsible for data processing is available upon formal request to be forwarded to the owner of the treatment), for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected and in any case adopting procedures and measures to protect the security and confidentiality.

The personal data as well as the e-mail address are used to send the news of the site. As far as the Blog is concerned, the opinions and comments posted by users and the information and data contained therein will not be used for any purpose other than their publication; in particular, the aggregation or selection in specific databases is not foreseen. Any treatment for statistical purposes that in the future may be the intention of the site to perform will be conducted solely on an anonymous basis.

This Cookie Policy is an integral part of the Privacy Policy above. The user may express his or her consent to the use of cookies by continuing to browse the Sites, or by scrolling, clicking on one of the internal links on the pages of the Sites, or by clicking on the “x” button of the short information notice visible (at the bottom right) at each first access on the Sites, as provided for by the provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data (no. 229 of May 8, 2014).

Cookies consist of portions of code (computer files or partial data) sent by a server to the user’s Internet browser, automatically stored by said browser on the user’s computer and automatically sent back to the server at each occurrence or subsequent access to the site. Usually a cookie contains the name of the website from which the cookie originates, the vital duration of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on the user’s device) and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number. At each subsequent visit, the cookies are sent back to the website that originated them (first party cookies) or to another website that recognizes them (third party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise the user’s device and they serve various purposes such as, for example, allowing the user to navigate efficiently between pages, remembering favourite sites and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help to ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to a user and their interests.

If you choose to disable cookies, this may affect and/or limit your browsing experience on the Sites, for example, you may not be able to visit certain sections of a Site or you may not receive personalized information when you visit the Sites.

The way cookies work, as well as the options to restrict or block cookies, can be adjusted by changing the settings on your internet browser. Most Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically, but you can modify these settings to block cookies or to be notified whenever cookies are sent to your device. There are several ways to manage cookies, so please refer to your browser’s help screen to see how to adjust or change your browser settings. In fact, the user is allowed to change the default configuration and disable cookies (i.e. block them permanently), setting the highest level of protection.

How to manage cookies from the following browsers:

If you use different devices to view and access the Sites (e.g., computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.), you should ensure that each browser on each device is adjusted to reflect your cookie preferences. To delete cookies from your smartphone/tablet’s Internet browser, you should refer to your device’s user manual. The Sites use different types of cookies each of which has a specific function. The Sites use cookies to make browsing easier and to better adapt both the pages loaded and its products to the interests and needs of users. Cookies may also be used to speed up future user experiences and activities on the site. In addition, cookies are used to compile anonymous aggregate statistics that help us understand how users use the site and to improve the structure and content of the Sites.

Used Cookies list:

A) Technical cookies

The “technical” cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the site and allow users to navigate the site and take advantage of its features (for example, they allow the storage of previous actions or allow to save the user’s session and / or perform other activities strictly necessary for the operation of the site). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. They can be divided into:

– Navigation or session cookies

These cookies ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas). These cookies can then be distinguished according to their persistence on the user’s computer: those that are deleted automatically at the end of each navigation are called session cookies. If, on the other hand, they have a longer life, they are called permanent cookies;

– Analytics Cookies

These are assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the operator of the site to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site. In other words, they help to understand how users interact with the site by providing information relating to the last page visited, the number of sections and pages visited, the time spent on the site and any events that have arisen during navigation, such as an error message, and help to understand any difficulties that the user encounters in using the site. This information may be associated with user details such as IP address, domain, or browser; however, it is analyzed along with other users’ information so as not to identify one particular user over another. These cookies are collected and aggregated anonymously and allow the site operator to improve the usability of the site;

– Functional cookies

These cookies allow the portal to remember choices made by the user in order to optimize functionality. For example, they allow the portal to remember a user’s specific settings, such as country selection and, if set, permanent login status. Functional cookies are not essential to the operation of the Sites, but they improve the quality and experience of the Sites. If you do not accept these cookies, the performance and functionality of the Site may be diminished and access to Site content may be limited.

B) Profiling cookies

I”Targeting” or “profiling” cookies are used to present content that is better suited to you and your interests. They can be used to display targeted advertisements, to serve customized advertisements based on the user’s interests, or to limit the number of times the user views an advertisement. They also help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on the site; the site operator may use these cookies to remember sites that the user has visited and share this information with third parties, including agencies and advertisers who may use their cookies to collect information about the activities that users perform on the site.

“Sharing” (or social networking) cookies are required to allow you to interact with the Sites through your social account and are used, for example, to express a liking and share it with your relevant social contacts.

Third Party Cookies

An additional element to be considered, for the purposes of the correct definition of the matter in question, is the subjective one. It is necessary, that is, to take into account the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same manager of the site that the user is visiting (which can be synthetically indicated as “publisher”) or a different site that installs cookies through the first one (so-called “third parties”). This second option happens, for example, if the user visits a page that contains content from a third party website. As a result, the user will receive cookies from these third-party services. On third-party cookies, the site operator does not have control over the information provided by the cookie and does not have access to such data. This information is fully controlled by the third party companies as described in their respective privacy policies. Since these cookies are not directly controlled by the publisher, to revoke consent you must refer to the websites of the third parties or refer to for information on how to delete or manage cookies depending on the browser you are using and to manage your preferences on third-party profiling cookies.
