Web surfing data
The information systems and the software procedures in charge of the operation of this website acquire, during normal operation, some personal data that is implicitly transmitted when using Internet communication protocols.
This information is not collected for being connected to the identified persons concerned, but their nature may allow to identify the users by processing and combining it with data held by third parties.
This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers of the users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of request, the method used when submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the number code indicating the state of the reply given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relevant to the user’s operating system and information environment.
These data items are used only to get anonymous statistical information about the use of the site and to check its correct operation. All data are immediately deleted after processing. Data could be used to ascertain responsibilities in case of hypothetical computer processing violations. Currently, no data item about Web contacts is kept for longer than seven days.

Data given by the user voluntarily

No personal data of the users is acquired on the subject by the site.
No cookies are used for transmitting personal information, not even the so-called persistent cookies, or systems for tracking the users.
Using the so-called session cookies (which are not persistently stored on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary for allowing a safe and efficient site exploration.
The so-called session cookies used in this site avoid using other potentially prejudicial information techniques for the user’s web surfing confidentiality and do not allow to acquire personal data identifying the user.
