Any third-party websites that are referred to and/or linked through links (specifically including the websites of third-party providers) within the Website are the exclusive responsibility of the third parties who manage them and are therefore subject to the independent terms and conditions and privacy policy of their respective suppliers.

In particular, the writer provides the following information. 


Navigation data

The information systems and software procedures used to operate the site acquire, during 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 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 the domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, 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 given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user's operating system and computer environment. These data are used for the only purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check that it is functioning correctly. The data could also be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site: without prejudice to this possibility, the data on web contacts persist for a limited period and are deleted periodically.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

The person concerned may voluntarily provide the information requested and functional to the provision of services, by filling in the appropriate data collection forms on the platform. 

Therefore, data of a common, essentially identifying nature (e.g. name; surname; physical and/or telephone and/or telematic contact details), login, e-mail address and passwords and data relating to payment settings (including credit card information and promotional codes, gift vouchers and account balance) may be collected. The data controller will not collect and/or process the "special categories of personal data" referred to in Article 9 of the Privacy Regulations (relating, for example, to health). 


The Websites make use of cookies in some of their areas. Cookies are files that store information on your hard drive or in your browser cache. They allow the respective Websites to check whether the user has already visited them, to load any customizations and/or preferences (language, screen size, etc.) and to collect certain statistical data (most visited pages, visit times, etc.). Through this data it is possible to make the Websites longer respond to the requests and needs of users and easier to navigate. For example, cookies make it possible to assure users that the information on the site in future visits responds to the preferences collected and/or set.
