Please find below a description of how the website is operated in respect of the processing of the data concerning the users visiting it. This policy is provided pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereinafter also referred to as the “Regulation”).

Data and processing methods
No services are offered or rendered by the Firm through this website, and any data provided by third parties through the Firm’s contact details and addresses are handled by personnel from the Firm. No data from the web are disclosed or disseminated to third parties. The personal data provided by users submitting requests to the Firm will be used for the sole purpose of performing any requested service or work and will only be disclosed to third parties if this is necessary for that purpose, either in order to perform the service or due to law requirements.
The personal data are processed also using automated tools for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected, and are stored for as long as required by law in order to comply with tax requirements and with the obligations towards those who benefited from the Firm’s services. Specific security measures are taken to prevent loss of data, illegal or improper use and unauthorised access.
During their normal operation and for the duration of the connection, the IT systems and software procedures used to operate this website will acquire some personal data whose transmission is inherent in the use of Internet communication protocols.
This information is not collected in order for it to be associated with identified data subjects; however, because of its very nature, it may make it possible to identify users through processing and associations with data held by third parties.
This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used for submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numeric code indicating the server response status (successful, error, etc.), and other parameters regarding the user’s operating system and IT environment.
These data can be used:
- to comply with requirements imposed by national and Community legislation as well as with orders given by Supervisory and Monitoring Bodies;
- to establish liability in case of potential computer crimes against the website and for investigations in case of litigation, if any.
Except for these cases, at present the collected data will remain on the servers for as long as compatible with the law and the expressed needs, without prejudice to the stated rights of the data subject.
The data are also used to obtain anonymous statistical information on website usage and to monitor proper functioning of the website.
Data provided by the user on a voluntary basis
If email is optionally, explicitly and voluntarily sent to the addresses stated on this website, this will involve subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, which is required in order to respond to requests, as well as of any other personal data included in the message. Personal data will be used for sending any responses, on the assumption that if the sender sends any requests, he or she has given his or her implicit prior consent.

The Firm cannot erase personal data if processing thereof is necessary, for instance, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

- is authorised by Italian or European law;
- is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
In the cases referred to in letters a) and c), the Firm shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, and the data subject can exercise the right to obtain intervention on the part of the Firm, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
