The data controller shall not be considered responsible for third parties' web sites. When accessing the Site it is also possible to distinguish the data deriving from the user's navigation only, from those provided voluntarily by the user in relation to certain purposes.
Data deriving from the user's navigation
During their normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. These pieces of information are not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but by their very nature could allow to identify users through elaborations and associations with data held by third parties. These processing activities and data binding are never carried out by the data controller. This data category shall cover: IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the Site, the URI-mapped addresses (URI stands for Uniform Resource Identifier) of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting 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 (successful, error, and so on) and other parameters relating to the operating system and to the computing environment of the user.
These data are exclusively used in anonymous form and for statistical purposes related to the use of the site and its correct functioning.

Specific summaries of information are reported or displayed in the pages of the Site dedicated to on-demand services, so that they can draw the data subject's attention on the processing of his/her own personal data.
With the exception of what above specified concerning navigation data, the provision of personal data is optional and discretionary, although it might be necessary for some specific services, where the non-submittal of one's personal data could jeopardize or even make it impossible to get the required service.
