Type of Data Processed
Visiting or consulting the Website does not usually entail the collection and processing of your personal data, except for “navigation data” and cookies, as detailed below. In addition, you might voluntarily provide personal data to the Company either when you interact with some functions of the Website or when you require certain services available on the Site.
Navigation Data and Cookies
Processing of your personal data on the Website is limited to the so-called “navigation data”, that is the data transmitted to the Website as necessary for operating the computerised systems set up for managing the Website as well as the Internet communication protocols. By way of example, the IP addresses or the domain names of the computer used to visit the Website, as well as other parameters relating to the operating system used to connect to the Website. The Company collects such and other data (such as the number of visits and the time spent on the Website) for truly statistical purposes and in an anonymous manner in order to monitor the functioning of the Website and to improve its efficiency. Such data are not collected to be associated with other information regarding the users of the Site neither to enable your identification; yet, due to the nature of such data, information could allow your identification through processing and association with other data held by third parties. For such reason, navigation data are immediately de-identified after processing and could only be retrieved by the Company to ascertain liabilities concerning computer offenses committed to the detriment of the Website or through the Website. Notwithstanding the above, navigation data as described above are only kept for a limited time in compliance with the applicable regulations.
Cookies are small files saved on the hard disk. The Site uses so-called “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”.
Session cookies are temporary strings of information that are used in order to facilitate the use of the Site, for internal security purposes and administration of the system.

The cookies are adopted for purely statistical purposes and the information thereof is collected in aggregate form. Using a pair of cookies (respectively, a persistent cookie and a session one, which is deleted when the user closes the browser), Google Analytics also saves the timestamp of the start of the visit and the exit from the Website.
