This website strictly respects the privacy rights of its users according to the applicable law, including the laws implementing the European Directive for the Protection of Personal Data (GDPR) EU 2016/679 and the E-Privacy Directive.

The computer systems and the applications dedicated to the functioning of this website detect, during their normal operation, some data (the transmission of which is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols) not associated with directly identifiable users.

Such information – which by their nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow the identification of users – are not collected to be associated with identified data subjects. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of computer crimes or acts of damage to the site; except for this eventuality, the data on web contacts do not persist beyond the time necessary to carry out the checks aimed at ensuring the constant security of the system.

As a rule, cookies are stored on your device or in your browser, and send certain information to the party that sent the cookie. When we talk about cookies, we refer in reality to a wider range of technologies rather than only to cookies, including web beacons, clear gifs, pixels and other similar technologies.

Cookies do this by allowing the party that sends the cookie to analyze the performance of a website or a mobile app, to identify certain users anonymously and remember their preferences, to better understand if a computer or device (and probably its user) has already visited a website and to provide personalized advertising.


You can avoid certain cookies by configuring your browser settings, or by directly deactivating the part that manages and controls cookies. Check the settings on your browser for more detailed information. Disabling cookies may prevent the correct operation of some features of this website.
