The information below describes the active and passive methods of collection of information regarding the Users and tools that interact with this site, as well as the security measures in force.

During website navigation by a User who has not registered and does not play an active role, there may be some collection of information, defined as passive data collection. The following points describe how IP addresses, cookies and other session identifiers, as well as navigation data in particular are used, including the possibility of blocking of them and the effects of doing so.

  • does not process IP addresses to collect information, but stores them as navigation data;
  • uses navigation data solely for aggregated statistical purposes;
  • uses cookies and other technical session identifiers that belong to it and to third party sites.
  • uses technical cookies to make navigation possible or functional to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service requested by the User, in compliance with Directive 2002/58/EC as implemented in current privacy legislation. It does not request user consent for these activities.
  • Third-party technical cookies are used for statistical purposes, in anonymous or aggregated form, to provide users with a service matching their preferences.
