Internet privacy management

The Foundation respects the privacy of anyone visiting its websites; any collected information will be used to provide the services requested by the user which interacts with the internet services of the Foundation, and allow the Foundation to improve the quality of the services themselves, or in order to register the user to benefit from certain services or to participate to particular initiatives. The term “personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (the “interested subject”); an identifiable person is a person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more specific elements of his physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity. The Foundation applies the Code regarding the protection of personal data (Legislative Decree 196/2003): contents and services are provided only to those who explicitly request it and authorize the Foundation to process their personal data.


Briefing Note

The following briefing note is provided, pursuant to art. 13 of Legislative Decree 196/2003, both to those who interact with the Internet services of the Foundation, and to users of this website who consult it and use its services. This information is also provided in the name and on behalf of the other independent data controllers who, as part of the treatment described below, are involved in the processing itself.

Type of processed data

Questi dati vengono utilizzati al solo fine di ricavare informazioni statistiche anonime sull’uso del sito e per controllarne il corretto funzionamento. I dati potrebbero essere utilizzati per l’accertamento di responsabilità in caso di presunti reati informatici ai danni del sito.

Browsing data (“log file”). The computer systems and software procedures designated to the functioning of this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This kind of information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parts. However they could, by their very nature, allow users to be identified through processing and association with data held by third parties. This category of data includes the IP addresses and the domain names of the computers used by the users connecting to the website, the addresses in the Uri (Uniform resource identifier) ​​notation of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the file size obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters concerning the operating system and the IT environment used by the user. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the website and to check its correct functioning. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of alleged computer crimes against the website.

Cookies. “Cookies” are short strings of text that websites can send to the user’s browser. We distinguish between persistent cookies (they remain stored in the user’s computer after the closure of the program or “browser” used to access the website), statistical cookies or “analytics” (used to statistically analyze website accesses / visits), cookies session (they are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and vanish with the closing of the “browser”) and technical cookies (for authentication, for multimedia content such as flash player for language customization or similar, etc.). This website does not use persistent cookies but only analytics, session and technical cookies, which pursue only statistical purposes and collect information in aggregate form. The use of session cookies is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the website: session cookies used on this website avoid the use of other computer techniques that are potentially damaging to the confidentiality of users’ browsing and do not allow the acquisition of personal identification data. Cookies cannot retrieve other data from the user’s hard drive or get his e-mail address: if the user simply browses the website, a cookie can be used to identify the user’s browser and find out if he has visited the website previously. The user can change the settings of his browser to accept all cookies, receive a warning when a cookie is sent or reject all cookies.

Data voluntarily provided by the user. The optional, voluntary and explicit transmission of e-mails to the addresses indicated in the different access channels of this website or the compilation of specifically prepared forms entails the subsequent acquisition of the address as well as any other personal data of the sender / user, necessary to respond to the requests and / or provide the demanded service.

Nature of the data provision

The user is free to provide personal data contained in the request forms of the various services offered on this website; the transmission of personal data to the Foundation always takes place under the responsibility of the user. Providing personal data is optional, but failure to provide the requested data will make it impossible to obtain the related services. Personal data is not collected (not even the e-mail address) without the user’s consent. In some websites, the Foundation may require the user to voluntarily provide information such as: e-mail address, postal address, telephone number or other information to allow improvement of access to the website or to directly contact the user. The decision to provide such information depends exclusively on the user. If, in relation to the use of a specific service by the user, you are asked to use the data differently from what is described in this Privacy Policy, the user can choose not to use the service.

Purposes of data processing

The Foundation carries out processing of personal data within the limits of what is strictly necessary for the performance of its statutory purposes, preferring methods that allow identification of the interested parts only in case of need. Specific purposes, related to individual treatments, can be reported in detail in the various access channels: the user can find additional information on the processing of personal data within those channels. In any case, the processing of data is based on principles of correctness, lawfulness, transparency and protection of the privacy of users.

Specific security measures are observed to prevent data loss, illicit or incorrect use and unauthorized access; however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure and therefore the Foundation, while engaging in the protection of users’ personal data, cannot guarantee or guarantee the security of every information transmitted by and to users.
