For purposes related to the delivery of the service to which the user has subscribed, the data will be made available to third parties, including related entities, as well as consultants who assist the Controller in meeting the requests of users (eg, law and tax firms), who will act, as the case may be, as independent data controllers or as data controllers under Art. 28 of the GDPR.

in the case of data strictly necessary to comply with any requests from users, will make it impossible for the Controller to meet the requests themselves;

in the case of data provision being optional, refusal will make it impossible to provide at least part of the services requested or carry out commercial information activities for users of the services provided by the Controller and other companies connected to the same.

Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users connecting to the site, 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 response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc..) and other parameters relating to the operating system and computer environment.

These data are used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and to check its proper functioning and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the Site: except for this possibility, at present, the data on web contacts do not persist for more than seven days.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

The personal data normally requested for the use of Site services are personal and contact information. The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on the Site entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender's address, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Normally no data belonging to particular categories under Art. 9 of the GDPR will be processed; in the event of such data being processed for certain services a special statement will be issued and the data subject’s specific consent will be requested.
