  • Article 7 of the Regulation EU 2016/679 – Condition for consent provides for, where processing is based on consent, the controller shall be able to demonstrate that the data subject has consented to processing of his or her personal data. If the data subject’s consent is given in the context of a written declaration which also concerns other matters, the request for consent shall be presented in a manner which is clearly distinguishable from the other matters, in an intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language. Any part of such a declaration which constitutes an infringement of this Regulation shall not be binding. The data subject shall have the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Prior to giving consent, the data subject shall be informed thereof. It shall be as easy to withdraw as to give consent. When assessing whether consent is freely given, utmost account shall be taken of whether, inter alia, the performance of a contract, including the provision of a service, is conditional on consent to the processing of personal data that is not necessary for the performance of that contract.


D.LGS 196/2003 and the Regulation EU 2016/679 generally require the subject’s consent to the personal data processing. They also require that the data subject is provided with some information, included in this report.
Preface this by saying that none user’s personal data is acquired by the website in this context.
Website is user accessible without needing to consent to the data processing.

During their normal operation in this website, computer systems and proceeding software acquire some personal data implicitly transmitted in using communication protocols of the World Wide Web. Such data is related to telematic traffic, which by its nature is not collected to be immediately associated to a concerned and identified person. But also, by is nature, data could leading to identify website users, through processing and associations with data held by third parties.
This data group includes: IP address or domain name of the computer used to broswing this website; rotating URL address of the required resources; requesting time; method used to submit request; file size obtained; numerical code of the response obtained by the server (success, error), and other parameter of the OS and the IT environment of the user.
This kind of data is only used to derive anonymous statistical information about the website traffic and his proper functioning. Such data are immediately deleted after processing; it is kept by the website Holder for the period strictly necessary and in any case in accordance with the regulatory provision in force.

Voluntary provided data
If user want to be registered in the website database to be able to access the service provided by the database, he or she shall submit a “form”, in which give his or her consent to data processing activities.
User can give no consent to personal data processing, but this case could involve the impossibility to obtain the service required.

Article 8 of the Regulation EU 2016/679 provides that minor personal data processing is lawful when the minor is at least 16 years old. When minor is younger than 16, data processing is lawful only if a parent, or the person who has the parental responsibility, gives consent.

A – Purpose of data processing

Precondition: Article 28 (Data Controller) of D.LGS 196/2003 reports: “Whenever processing operations are carried out by a legal person, a public administrative agency or any other body, association or organisation, the data controller shall be either the entity as a whole or the department or peripheral unit having fully autonomous decision-making powers in respect of purposes and mechanisms of said processing operations as also related to security matters”.
After that, MARIO DI MAIO, as Data Controller of this website, informs that personal data in its possession collected directly from the subject are and will be treated only as provides in this Document, in the Policy Privacy and in the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016.

Such data can be treated also by other Society appointed Commissioner for:

Accounting, administrative, fiscal and related purposes, in respect of legal obligation, guidelines, EU Regulation and other dispositions promulgated by Competent Authorities and Supervision Body.
Personal data provision is obligatory for this purpose and its treatment need no consent by the involved subject. Refusal to give data implies impossibility to establish any rapport between user and data controller. Such purposes are closely linked to contractual relations with costumers, both in ongoing and under negotiation (acquisition of information prior to the conclusion of a contract, execution of operations on the bases of obliges deriving from the contract signed with the client, check and assessment on rapport outlooks and findings and on its risks).
Whenever data is not collected from the involved subject, Data Controller provides him or her following informations: Data Protection Officer ID and contact details, when relevant; purposes of data processing and treatment legal basis; groups of personal data concerned; possible recipients or groups of recipients who will receive such data.

Cookie policy (extended version)

Identification of simplified procedures for information and the acquisition of consents for the use of cookies. Ruling no. 229 of 8/5/2014 - Published on the G.U. 126 of 3/6/2014.

We consider privacy and protection of our visitors’ personal data very seriously. This information therefore has the purpose of explaining what cookies are, how they are used on the Website and how the visitor can consciously make his decisions for their management.

This site uses cookies, including third-party cookies, to offer services in line with the browser’s preferences and in some cases to send advertising messages. By closing the banner of the brief information on cookies on the site, scrolling through the pages, clicking on a link or continuing navigation in any other way, you are consenting to the use of cookies. If you want to learn more or opt out of all or some cookies, read the following in full.

1. What cookies are and what kind of cookies this website uses

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. During the navigation on a site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies sent from different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which certain elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that he or she is visiting.
Cookies, usually found in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes with features of long temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc.
In order to arrive at a correct regulation of such devices, it is necessary to distinguish them since there are no technical characteristics that differentiate them from each other precisely on the basis of the aims pursued by those who use them. In this direction, however, legislator has moved, which, in implementation of the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136 / EC, has brought the obligation to acquire the prior and informed consent of users to the installation of cookies used for purposes. Different from those merely technical (see art. 1, paragraph 5, letter a), of the D.LGS. 28 May 2012, n. 69, which amended art. 122 of the Code).
In this regard, and for the purposes of this provision, two macro-categories are therefore identified: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

a. Technical cookies

The site uses first-party technical cookies (session, functional and in some cases analytics in aggregate form) and possibly third-party technical cookies.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service “(see Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code).
They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager. They can be divided into browsing or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required, while the obligation to provide the information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, which the site manager, if he uses only such devices, may provide in the manner he deems most suitable.
However, it is possible to block the installation of technical cookies with the methods indicated in paragraph 3 below.

N.B.: We invite you to consider that, by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently eliminating them, the ability to access the Site, to use all or part of it, to enable or disable certain functions or to receive certain services could be all or partly compromised.

b. Profiling cookies

The site does not use first-party profiling cookies but may use third-party cookies.
Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while browsing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices can have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent.
The art. Refers to them 122 of the Code where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has expressed his consent after being been informed using the simplified procedures referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3 “(Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code).
It is possible to block the installation of third-party profiling cookies in the manner indicated in paragraph 3 below.

Actors involved: publishers and “third parties”

A further element to be considered, for the purposes of the correct definition of the subject in question, is the subjective one. That is, it is necessary to take into account the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same site manager that the user is visiting (which can be briefly referred to as “publisher”) or a site different that installs cookies through the first (so-called “third party”).
On the basis of what emerged from the public consultation, it is considered necessary that this distinction between the two subjects indicated above is also taken into account in order to correctly identify the respective roles and the respective responsibilities, with reference to the release of the information and to the acquisition of online user consent.
There are many reasons why it is not possible for the publisher to provide the information and to consent to the installation of cookies on its site even for those installed by “third parties”. The publisher therefore declines any and all liability with regard to any request and / or release of personal data to third-party sites.


According to the FAQ published by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data, the categories below are required to provide the information and request consent for the use of cookies:

The website owner who installs profiling cookies. We remind you that this site - as mentioned above - does not use first-party profiling cookies. For third-party cookies installed through the site, the disclosure and consent obligations are borne by third parties, but the site owner, as a technical intermediary between these and users, is required to include updated links in the “extended” policy to the information and to the consent forms of the third parties themselves.


The user can decide whether to accept cookies. For this purpose, he or she can use Internet browser settings. Most browsers allow you to manage (view, enable, disable and delete) cookies through settings.
Consult the user’s manual of the navigation browser used to find out how to manage cookies. The following is a non-exhaustive example of how to find instructions provided by the service provider of the most popular browsers:

Chrome: for more information visit the dedicated page.
Mozilla Firefox: for more information visit the dedicated page.
Internet Explorer: for more information visit the dedicated page.
Safari: for more information visit the dedicated page.
Opera: for more information visit the dedicated page.

The links above may be subject to changes during time. The same information is easily available using a search engine.
If your browser is not present, refer to the cookie information provided by the browser itself. If you use a mobile phone, consult the relevant manual for more information.
Following the disabling of cookies through the browser settings, we remind the need to always provide for the elimination of those already present before disabling them.

N.B.: indiscriminately blocking the receipt of all cookies, including technical ones, without providing a specific exception for the Site, you may no longer be able to browse the Site or use all or part of its functionality. Furthermore, by deleting all cookies from the browser, even technical cookies could be removed and, therefore, the preferences set using the Site could be removed or the products or services included in the shopping cart could no longer be found.
