3. Personal Data Subject to Processing
Among the Personal Data processed by this website, independently and/or through third parties, are:

  1. Data collected automatically (hereinafter referred to as Navigation Data)
  2. Data voluntarily provided by the User

3.1. Navigation Data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some technical and navigational data, the transmission of which is inherent to the use of Internet communication protocols. This category of data includes IP addresses, domain names, the type of browser used, the method used to connect to the site, the date and time of the request, the web page of origin of the visitor (referral) and exit, as well as other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and computer environment. Navigation Data is acquired not for the purpose of identifying users but solely for the purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information, in aggregate form, on the use of the Site and its services and/or checking its correct functioning. This data will be deleted immediately after processing.


3.2. Data Voluntarily Provided by the User
Where the User uses one of the services offered, especially communication services (Newsletter, Contact Form, and Consultation Request Form), the Data Controller may collect all voluntarily provided Data, but their use will be solely aimed at providing the requested service. In this category of data, there are: name and email address, the provision of which is necessary to respond to requests and contact the sender, as well as any other optional data, always provided voluntarily, such as the phone number.

4. Purpose of Processing and Legal Basis
The Data that the User chooses to provide voluntarily is collected to allow the website to provide its services, as well as for the following Purposes:

a) to perform statistical analysis on aggregated and anonymous data, analyze User behavior, improve products and services provided by the Controller, and meet the User’s expectations. It is important to note that none of this information is related to individuals, and since the identification of the user is precluded, no explicit consent is required.

b) to carry out commercial, promotional, and profiling activities following the voluntary subscription by the User to the Newsletter service, who, by subscribing, makes themselves available to receive promotional and marketing communications based on the activity carried out on the Site;

c) to carry out consulting and/or professional assignments only in cases where the User, with explicit consent, communicates their Data through requests for assistance or information. Such Data will be used solely for the evaluation of the assignment and for its eventual fulfillment;

d) to fulfill any legal, accounting, and tax obligations;

e) for other purposes connected, accessory, and/or instrumental to the services offered by the website.

As prescribed by current regulations, processing is lawful only if and to the extent that one of the conditions provided for in art. 6 of EU Regulation 2016/679 is met. The purposes listed above represent a legitimate processing of Personal Data pursuant to art. 6, c.1, lett. a), b), and f) of the GDPR. Without prejudice to the legitimate interest of the data controller, processing is necessary for the provision of the services provided by the site and for the execution of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the User. Furthermore, the Data Subject always expresses consent to the processing for the aforementioned purposes under letters b) and c). It should therefore be clarified that for the purposes in question, the provision of personal data is always optional, but the absence of this would result in the impossibility of responding to requests for information, activating consulting services, and/or receiving applications for any work collaborations.

5. Recipients of the Data
In addition to the Data Controller, in limited cases, the Data may be accessed by:

  1. a) categories of specifically trained Data Processors involved in the organization of the website (administrative, commercial, marketing, legal, system administrators);
  2. b) external subjects such as third-party technical service providers or hosting providers who, in such cases, under art. 28 GDPR, will be appointed Data Processors. The updated list of Data Processors, if appointed, can always be requested from the Controller at the email addresses previously indicated. To know in detail the technical service providers with whom the website shares the acquired Data, reference is made to point IX of this information.

Outside of the aforementioned hypotheses, personal data will not be disclosed except to subjects, Entities, and Authorities to whom disclosure is mandatory pursuant to legal or regulatory provisions.

6. Data Retention Period
As expressly provided for in art. 5, c. 1, lett. e) of the GDPR, the Data is kept for a period not exceeding the achievement of the Purposes for which it is processed. Specifically:

  • data collected for statistical purposes will be kept only in anonymous and aggregated form;
  • data collected based on the User’s Consent may be kept until it is revoked by the data subject;
  • data collected for consulting requests or professional assignments will be kept for the time strictly necessary for the performance of the assignment and for the execution of the contract of which the User is a party, as well as for ancillary purposes (e.g., tax obligations, judicial protection, etc.).

At the end of the retention period, the Data will be deleted or returned to the User, unless there are further purposes for their retention. Further information regarding the data retention period and the criteria used to determine this period can always be requested by contacting the Controller at the email address
