Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this site acquire, during their 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 interested parties, but by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

This category of data includes the following:

IP addresses of the devices used by users;

date and time the request was received;

the addresses in URI / URL (Uniform Resource Identifier / Locator) notation of the requested resources;

the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.);

the size in bytes of the response;

URI address/URL of the page of origin (referrer);

Browser recognition string (user agent).

This data does not persist for more than 15 days. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site. Except for the latter hypothesis, the data are anonymized to obtain aggregate statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing.



Cookies are small text files containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and the user’s terminal (usually the browser). They are mainly used for the purpose of making websites work and operate more efficiently, as well as in order to provide information to the owners of the website itself. Cookies can be both session and persistent. Session cookies remain stored in the terminal for a short period of time and are deleted as soon as the user closes the browser. Their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain stored in the user’s terminal until a predetermined deadline. These, not being deleted directly when the browser is closed, allow you to remember the choices made by the user on its site as well as to collect information about the pages of the site visited by the user, the frequency with which the site is visited and to identify the navigation path of users, in order to improve the experience on this site. Cookies, session or persistent, can finally be first-party or third-party depending on whether the person who installs cookies on the user’s terminal is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (we will then talk about first-party cookies) or a different subject (we will then talk about third-party cookies).
