The cookies are small text files stored in the user’s PC. Our site uses either the ID session cookies (temporary) or persistent cookies. The ID session cookies vanish permanently once the browser is closed. The persistent cookie files remain in the hard disk of the computer if not manually deleted by the user.
The Site uses the cookies for various purposes. For instance, the cookies are used to automatically recognise if the user has been previously connected to the Site. Furthermore, they are used to trace the user’s navigation course and to understand better the way the Site is being used.
The majority of Internet users accept automatically the cookies, but if they prefer to block them, they can do this by reconfiguring their browser protection. However, if choosing this last option, they might meet some obstacles in their attempt to access some sections of the Site.
When the user visits the Site, information are gathered on the computer and a cookie is sent to the User’s Computer. These data are not supplied by the user, but automatically picked to the purpose of backing up Their visit to our Site.
If the user doesn’t sign up to the Site, the personal data collected will be limited. We will collect the user’s IP address so as to single out potential problems connected to our server, administer the Site and compile statistics of use.
In any case it will be extremely difficult to identify the user beginning only from the IP address and no attempt will be made in this way.
Once the user has registered to the Site, the personal information of the user is associated to the Cookie and remains in the User’s computer if not deleted manually.
As with the majority of servers, we use logfiles. The log files include IP addresses, the type of server, the ISP, the reference and exit pages, the type of platform, the time data (date/hour), and the number of clicks. These files are useful to analyse the tendencies, run the site, trace the navigation course, diagnose the server problems and collect general demographic information on the use of the aggregated IP. The addresses and all the other registration data are not connected to identifiable or retraceable personal information.
