Privacy Policy


In compliance with the obligations deriving from national legislation (Legislative Decree no. 196 of 30 June 2003, Personal Data Protection Code) and Community legislation (European Regulation for the protection of personal data no. 679/2016, GDPR) and subsequent amendments, we inform you that this website respects and protects the privacy of visitors and users, making every possible and proportionate effort not to infringe their rights. Indeed, we believe that the user must know the purposes and type of data collected, so that he or she can exercise adequate control over both areas. This website is committed to enforcing the current legislation with a view to protection “by default”, by retaining only as much personal data as is necessary and sufficient for the purposes intended and for as long as is strictly necessary for those purposes, and “by design”, by designing the privacy function and preventing any problems by design. This privacy policy applies to the online activities of this website and applies to visitors/users of the website and applies to information collected through channels other than this website. The purpose of the privacy policy is to provide maximum transparency about what information the site collects and how it uses it.

Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as the visitor visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, integrate additional third-party tracking, and track your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that website.


The Site collects statistics via the open source software AwStats. Details of the data collected can be found at . The data is analysed for the sole purpose of improving the content of the website, mainly to understand where the users come from and which pages and articles are of most interest to the users.

Who we share your data with

The Data are processed at the operational headquarters of the Data Controller and in any other place where the parties involved in the processing are located. For further information, please contact the Data Controller. Your Data will not be sent anywhere but only stored, for the time specified above, in the Data Controller’s database located in Milan (Italy).

How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment on the Site, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is how we can automatically recognise and approve any follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For Users who register on our website (where a login area is available), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All Users can view, change or delete their personal information at any time (except their username which they cannot change). The administrators of the Site can also view and modify this information.

More generally, Data are processed and stored for the time required by the purposes for which they were collected. Therefore:

  • Personal Data collected for purposes related to the performance of a contract between the Data Controller and the User will be retained until the performance of that contract is completed;
  • Personal Data collected for purposes related to the legitimate interest of the Controller will be retained until such interest is satisfied. The User may obtain further information on the legitimate interest pursued by the Controller in the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the Controller.

When the processing is based on the User’s consent, the Controller may keep the Personal Data for a longer period until such consent is revoked. In addition, the Controller may be obliged to retain Personal Data for a longer period in compliance with a legal obligation or by order of an authority.

At the end of the retention period, the Personal Data will be deleted. Therefore, at the end of this period, the right of access, cancellation, rectification and the right to data portability can no longer be exercised.

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account on this Site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file from the site with the personal data we hold about you, including the data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete all personal data about you. This does not include data that we are obliged to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Treatment modes

The Data Controller adopts appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorised access, disclosure, modification or destruction of Personal Data. The processing is carried out using computer and/or telematic instruments, with organisational methods and logics strictly related to the purposes indicated. In addition to the Data Controller, in some cases, other subjects involved in the organisation of this Site (administrative staff, lawyers, system administrators) or external subjects (such as third party technical service providers, postal couriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communication agencies) also appointed, if necessary, as Data Processors by the Data Controller, may have access to the Data. The updated list of Data Processors can always be requested from the Data Controller.

Legal basis of processing

The Data Controller processes Personal Data relating to the User if one of the following conditions applies:

  • the User has given consent for one or more specific purposes; Note: in some jurisdictions, the Controller may be allowed to process Personal Data without the User’s consent or another of the legal bases specified below, until the User objects (“opts out”) of such processing. However, this does not apply where the processing of Personal Data is governed by European legislation on the protection of Personal Data;
  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the User and/or the execution of pre-contractual measures;
  • the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which the Controller is subject;
  • processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Controller;
  • the processing is necessary for the pursuit of the legitimate interest of the Controller or of third parties.

However, it is always possible to ask the Controller to clarify the concrete legal basis of each processing operation and in particular to specify whether the processing is based on law, required by a contract or necessary to conclude a contract.
