The privacy policy is issued only for this site and not also for other websites that may be visited through links.

The privacy policy identifies a number of minimum requirements for the collection of personal data online and, specifically, the methods, the times and the nature of the information that the data controllers have to provide to users when they connect to, regardless of the purpose of connection.


Data relating to persons identified or identifiable may be processed further to visiting this site.

Browsing data

The information systems and software procedures relied upon to operate this web site acquire personal data as part of their standard functioning; the transmission of such data is an inherent feature of Internet communication protocols.

These data are used solely for the purpose of extracting statistical information on use of the site and to check the correct functioning of the services and are erased immediately after processing. The data could be used for ascertaining liability in the event of alleged cybercrime to the detriment of the site: with the exception of this case, at present data regarding website contacts are not kept for more than seven days.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

The optional, explicit and voluntary forwarding of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on this site implies the subsequent acquisition of the address of the sender, necessary for responding to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Apart from what is specified for browsing data, the user is free to choose whether or not to provide personal data. Failed provision may imply the impossibility to obtain what has been requested.


Personal data are processed with automated instruments for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which they have been collected.

Specific security measures are adopted to prevent the loss of data, unlawful or incorrect use and non-authorized accesses.


Any transfers of personal data to a foreign country outside the European Union or to an international organization shall occur on the basis of an adequacy decision by the Commission or, in the event of transfers as per articles 46, 47 or 49, second paragraph, of the European Regulation, on the basis of appropriate and suitable guarantees.


The data subjects to whom the personal data refer have the right, at any time, to request access to the data and their modification, cancellation, limitation of processing, the right to oppose their processing, besides the right to portability of the data; they also have the right to submit a claim to the Control Authority.
