Necessary processing and optional processing

The forms available on this website require you to confer some personal data which are strictly necessary to handle your communications and requests. Such Data are marked with an asterisk [*]. If you do not wish to confer them, we will not be able to handle your communication/request.

Conversely, the forms may also provide the possibility to confer personal data which are not strictly necessary to handle your requests: providing such data is optional - failure to do so has no consequence.

Browsing data

If you only visit the Website (i.e., without sending communications or using any of the available services/functions), the processing of your data is limited to browsing data i.e., data whose transmission to the Website is necessary for the functioning of the computers which operate the Website and of the Internet communication protocols. This category includes, for example, IP addresses or computer domain used to visit the Website and other parameters pertaining to the operating system used to connect to the Website.

Such data is not collected to be associated with other information regarding, or for the identification of, users; however, such information, by its very nature, may enable the Company to identify users through processing and association with data held by third parties. Browsing data are normally deleted following processing in anonymous form but can be stored and used by the Company to detect and identify perpetrators of any computer offences committed to the detriment of the Website or using the Website. Without prejudice to this possibility and to the provisions of the Cookie Policy [A2] the browsing data described above are stored only temporarily, in compliance with law.
