This data is collected automatically and anonymously during the visitors’ website browsing sessions. For more information on Google Analytics, please see the “Cookies Policy” section below.
Purpose of Data Processing
The primary purpose of processing the personal data we collect from our contact forms or from an email link is to provide information and/or services on behalf of the Company.
We do not process personal information about the information that users automatically provide when visiting the site. Instead this is only processed anonymously and for statistical analysis and oversight of the website’s operation.
The Company is solely responsible for the users’ personal data collected through the website, through its exclusively authorized representatives or employees.
Data Storing Time
The Company maintains the visitors’ personal data collected from the site for a period of time that is necessary for the purpose of processing, e.g. to handle requests. Once the processing goal has been completed, these data will be deleted within three (3) months of the date of the last message we received from the visitor.
Essential cookies are those needed for the proper operation of the website. They allow visitors to navigate and interact with the web pages, but they do not recognize their individual identity. Without these cookies, the website cannot function effectively.
Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use the site, such as which pages they visit most often, the type of browser they use, whether they receive error messages from web pages, etc. They collect aggregated, anonymous information that does not identify a visitor, and they are used exclusively for analysing traffic and improving the website’s performance.
About Google Analytics (Anonymization setting)
The website uses the Google Analytics service to measure website traffic. Google Analytics is the most popular traffic measurement service technically supported by cookies. The service concerns the collection and analysis of data about the visitor’s browsing behaviour on the website, such as the duration of the visit, the type of browser used, the location from which the visit came etc.
In order to access this data, we allow Google Analytics to place cookies on the hard drive of the visitor’s computer or other electronic device. Whenever you visit a different page within the website, your browser submits data in an automated, encrypted and anonymized way to the Google Analytics platform. In this context, the site uses the “IP Anonymization” setting. With it, Google limits the IP address of your computer or device and renders it anonymous when you access the website.
The purpose of using Google Analytics is to process anonymous data in order to improve the content and functionality of the website.
The storage time of the data collected is twenty-six (26) months.
You can completely block the collection of your data through Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on on your browser.
Users can also set the browser on their computer or device to stop receiving cookies, either as a whole or on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to the browser information you use to learn more about how to customize your settings.

Facebook may allow our website to collect and process some of your data (such as your username and your photo). The Company is considered jointly responsible for processing your data along with the Facebook platform.
