Where data processing takes place

The processing operations connected to the web services of this website take place at the above-mentioned offices of the Data controller and are carried out only by technical personnel of the Department in charge of processing, or by persons in charge of occasional maintenance operations.

No data deriving from the web service shall be communicated or disseminated.

The personal data supplied by the users who request dispatch of informative material (bulletins, CD-ROMs, newsletters, annual reports, replies to enquiries, etc.) are used with the sole purpose of supplying or performing the service requested and are communicated to third parties only if necessary for this purpose (dispatching services of the Data Protection Authority publications published by Information and Publishing Department, Presidency of the Council of Ministers).

Types of processed data
Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures in charge of the website's operation acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data (so-called log files) the transmission of which is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols.

This information is not collected in order to be associated to identified data subjects, but due to its same nature can, by means of processing and integration with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

This category includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by the users to connect to the website, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) form addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the reply given by the server (done, error, etc.) and other parameters concerning the user's operating system and computer environment.

These data are used with the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information concerning the use of the site and to check its correct operation and are deleted immediately after processing. These data can be used to ascertain responsibility in the case of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the website. Except for this case, data on web contacts are not stored longer than seven days.

Data supplied voluntarily by the user

The optional, explicit and voluntary dispatching of electronic mail to the addresses indicated in this website entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender's address, necessary in order to reply to the requests, and also any other personal data contained in the message.

Specific summary information will be gradually indicated or displayed on the web site pages for particular "on demand" services.

Cookies

No personal data concerning users are acquired by the website through cookies.

Cookies are not used to transmit information of a personal nature, nor are user-tracing and identification systems used.

The use of the so-called session cookies (that, in any case, are not stored persistently on the user's computer and are deleted automatically as soon as the browser is shut down) is strictly limited to the purpose of transmitting data (made up of random numbers created by the server) identifying the specific session and necessary to allow a safe and efficient website surfing.

The so-called session cookies used in this website avoid any other computer methods that could potentially compromise the privacy about users web-surfing and they do not make it possible to obtain personal data identifying the specific user.

Submitting data is optional

Excepting for that specified for navigation data above, the user can supply personal data indicated on request forms or, in any case, indicated on the contact form to request the dispatching of informative material or other communications.

Failing to submit personal data may make it impossible to process the request.

It must be remembered that in some cases (not object of the ordinary administration of this website) the Authority can request information pursuant to Art. 157 of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003,for the purposes of checking personal data processing. In these cases reply is obligatory under penalty of a fine.

Data processing procedures

Personal data are processed by computerised means for the time necessary to realise the purposes for which they were collected.
Specific security measures are observed in order to prevent the loss of data, unlawful or incorrect use and unauthorised access.

DATA SUBJECTS RIGHTS

The subjects to whom the personal data refer have the right, at any time, to obtain confirmation as to whether such data exists and to know its content and source, check its accuracy or request its integration, updating or rectification (Art. 7 of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003.).

Pursuant to the same article the Data Subject has the right to obtain the erasure, anonymity or blocking of data that has been processed unlawfully, and also to object in any case to its processing, on legitimate grounds.
