3.1 Navigation data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, dur-ing their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses or do-main names of the computers of users connected to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the meth-od used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numeric code indicating the status of the response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user's IT environment.

These data are used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to verify its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site: apart from this eventuality, the data on web contacts are not kept for more than seven days.

Apart from navigation data, the user is free to provide the personal data indicated in the contacts to request the sending of informative material or other communications.

•      not be subjected to decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produce legal effects that concern you or that significantly affect your person, if you have not previously and explicitly consented to them, as required by art. 22 of the European Regulation.
