Processing Methods and Types of Data
Navigation Data: The information systems and software procedures used for the operation of the Company’s sites acquire, during their normal operation, certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. These are pieces of information that are not collected to be associated with identified individuals but, by their very nature, could allow the identification of users through processing and association with data held by third parties. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the Company’s sites, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the timing of requests, the methods used in submitting requests to the Company’s servers, the sizes of files obtained in responses, numerical codes indicating the status of the responses given by the servers (successful, error, etc.), and other parameters related to the operating systems and computer environments of the users visiting the Company’s sites. These data are used solely to ensure the proper functioning of the Company’s sites and may be retained or deleted after processing. They may be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the Company’s sites. The data voluntarily provided by the user of the Company’s sites through the optional, explicit, and voluntary submission of personal data via the filling of electronic forms will result in the subsequent acquisition of such data for the purpose of providing the requested service.
Compulsory or Optional Nature of Data Provision
Apart from what is specified for navigation data, the User/Customer is free to provide the personal data reported in the request forms made available by the Company or indicated in contacts to request the sending of informational material or other communications. Their failure to provide such data may make it impossible to fulfill the request.
Rights of the Data Subjects

Requests should be addressed to the Data Controller through the contact form. See also GDPR Specifications.

This regulation specifically aims to explain the types, methods of use, as well as provide instructions on actions to refuse or delete cookies resulting from browsing the Company’s websites. By default, almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies, but all browsers have cookie control functions.

This type of cookie avoids the use of other potentially harmful computer techniques for the confidentiality of user browsing;
- “Persistent cookies” that remain stored on the hard disk of the computer until their expiration or deletion by users/visitors. Through persistent cookies, visitors accessing the site (or any other users using the same computer) are automatically recognized on each visit. Persistent cookies serve many functions in the interest of navigators (such as the use of the navigation language or the registration of the shopping cart in online purchases). However, persistent cookies can also be used for promotional purposes or even for purposes of questionable lawfulness. Visitors can set their computer’s browser to accept/reject all cookies or display a notice whenever a cookie is proposed, in order to evaluate whether to accept it or not. However, users are authorized to change the default (default) configuration and disable cookies (i.e., block them permanently), setting the highest level of protection.
