-  Navigation data: information systems and software procedures used to operate the Website collect personal data as part of their standard functioning: the transmission of those data is an inherent feature of Internet communication protocols.

Such information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects; however, because of its very nature, it might allow user identification after being processed and matched to data held by third parties. This category of data includes, among other things, the IP addresses or computer domain names used by Users who connect to the Website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of 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 server response (successfully performed, error, etc.) and other parameters associated with the User's operating system and computer environment.

These data are not intended to be disclosed and are only used to obtain anonymous statistical information on Website usage and to check the Website's proper functioning. They are retained for the time required in accordance with applicable legislation. These data might be used to establish liability in case of alleged computer crimes committed against the Website.

- Cookies: this Website uses automatic data collection systems that acquire data, such as cookies, which are not directly provided by the User. A cookie is a small text file, a reminder of the Internet page visited: it contains small bits of information that can be recorded on the User's computer when the browser calls up a particular website. In this way, the website can automatically adapt to the User, for example by sending content in a format compatible with the browser used or with specific display settings (style, colour, etc.). 

Depending on their characteristics and functions, different types of cookies can be stored on a computer for varying periods of time. 

This Website uses the following types of cookies:

-  necessary technical cookies - they are used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of an electronic communication, ensuring the proper display of the website and facilitating navigation within it, or to provide services explicitly requested by the User.

- analytics cookies - they are used to collect anonymous statistical information on the use of the website in order to make a statistical analysis of traffic (access and visits to the site) and optimize its functioning;

- profiling cookies - they are used to trace specific actions or recurring behavioural patterns in the use of the available functionalities (patterns) back to specific, identified or identifiable individuals for the purpose of grouping the different profiles within homogeneous, multi-sized clusters; the aim is to enable the Controller to send targeted advertising messages, i.e. messages that reflect the preferences expressed by Users in the context of their web-browsing activities.

Cookies can also be classified according to their origin:

- first-party cookies, i.e. cookies directly generated and managed by the administrator of the website that the User is visiting;

- third-party cookies, i.e. cookies generated and managed by entities different from the administrator of the website that the User is visiting.
