In compliance with the obligations deriving from national legislation (Legislative Decree No. 196 of June 30th 2003, Personal Data Protection Regulation, as amended) and European legislation (European Regulation for the protection of personal data No. 679/2016, GDPR ), this website respects and protects the privacy of visitors and users, making every effort possible and proportionate so as not to prejudice the rights of the users.
In particular, this website does not post advertisements, it does not use data for advertising purposes, but it does use third-party services in order to improve the use of the website, third parties that could collect user data and then use it to send customized advertisements to other websites. For example, the website uses YouTube videos in some cases, which are set to not send cookies (and therefore not to collect data) until the user plays the video. In fact, you can see that instead of the video there is only a placeholder. The website also uses social plugins to simplify the sharing of articles on social networks. These plugins are configured so that they send cookies (and therefore possibly collect data) only after the user has clicked on them.
For more information you can read the complete policy below.
LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING
The data provision and therefore consent to the collection and processing of data is optional; the User can deny consent, and can revoke consent already given at any time (via the banner at the bottom of the page or the browser settings for cookies, or the Contacts link). Moreover, denying consent may make it impossible to provide certain services and the browsing experience on the website would be compromised.
PURPOSE OF PROCESSING
The processing of data collected by the website, in addition to the related purposes, instrumental and necessary for the provision of the service, is focused on the following purposes:
Collection of data and information in an exclusively aggregated and anonymous form in order to check the correct operation of the website. None of this information is related to the natural person-User of the website, and does not allow identification in any way. No consent is required.
Collection of data and information in order to protect the security of the website (spam filters, firewalls, virus detection) and the Users and to prevent or expose fraud or abuse regarding the website. The data is automatically recorded and may also include personal data (IP address) that could be used, in compliance with the laws in force on the matter, in order to block attempts to damage the website or cause damage to other users, or in any case harmful activities or those representing a crime. These data are never used for identifying or profiling the User and are periodically deleted. No consent is required.
Communicate the data to third parties that perform functions necessary or instrumental to the operation of the service (e.g. comment boxes), and to allow third parties to carry out technical, logistic and other activities on our behalf. The suppliers have access only to the personal data that are necessary to carry out their tasks, and they undertake not to use the data for other purposes, and are required to process the personal data in compliance with the regulations in force.
This website collects user data in two ways.
Data automatically collected
During Users’ browsing the following information can be collected and stored in the server’s log files (hosting) of the website:

– browser type;
– parameters of the device used to connect to the website;
– name of the internet service provider (ISP);
– date and time of visit;
– visitor’s origin web page (referral) and exit;
– possibly the number of clicks.
This data is used for statistical and analysis purposes, in an exclusively aggregated form. The IP address is used exclusively for security purposes and is not crossed with any other data.
Data provided voluntarily
The website may collect other data in the event of voluntary use of services by users, such as commenting, communication services (contact forms, comment boxes), and will be used exclusively for the provision of the requested service:
– e-mail address.
The data collected from the website are processed at the Data Controller’s headquarters, and at the web hosting data center (Register.it), which is responsible for processing the data on behalf of the Data Controller, and is located in the European Economic Area and acts in compliance with European standards.
DATA STORAGE PERIOD
The data collected by the website during its operation are kept for the time strictly necessary to carry out the specified activities. The data will be deleted or anonymized upon expiration, unless there are no further purposes for their storage.
The data (IP address) used for website security purposes (blocking attempts to damage the website) is kept for 7 days.
TRANSFER OF COLLECTED DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
The data collected by the website are generally not supplied to third parties, except for specific cases: legitimate request by the judicial authority and only in the cases provided for by law; if it is necessary for the provision of a specific service requested by the User; for performing security checks or website optimization.
Under the laws in force, the Data Controller is Berkem Srl, the website administrator, in the person of Giovanni Bersaglio, who can be contacted through the CONTACTS section (link at the bottom of the page).
