  • Use of technical and necessary cookies. Collection of browsing data requires use of cookies. Cookies are short strings of text sent to the user’s device (PC, notebook, smartphone, tablet, etc.) during access to the website and sometimes stored in the browser and then sent back the next time the user accesses the website. The UNINETTUNO website uses ‘technical cookies’ (i.e., for electronic communication of the information and services requested by the user) to ensure normal browsing and use of the services, according to the selected criteria (such as the chosen language). Their effectiveness is, in most cases, limited to the duration of the browsing session. Use of these cookies does not require the data subject’s consent. The UNINETTUNO website also uses Matomo analytics cookies for collecting data, in aggregate form, on the number of users who have visited the website and their access methods in order to generate internal statistics on use of the website for the purpose of improving the services it offers. Their effectiveness is limited to one day in the case of ‘_pk_ses#’ cookies and one year from installation in the case of ‘_pk_id#’ cookies. In both cases, the data collected is not shared with third parties. Use of these cookies, once again, does not require the data subject’s consent. Finally, the UNINETTUNO website uses Google Inc. cookies to perform the CAPTCHA test. These cookies are necessary for in order to implement the security measure known as Challenge-Response authentication: the CAPTCHA test protects the Data Controller from spam by asking the user to take a simple test to prove they are a person and not a computer. The effectiveness of Google Inc. cookies is limited to the duration of the browsing session on the website in the case of ‘rc::c’ cookies and persistent in the case of ‘rc::a’ cookies. Use of these cookies does not require the data subject’s consent. No promotional or advertising cookies (so-called ‘profiling cookies’) are used, including third-party ones.

Processing of the user’s personal data, to enable browsing within the UNINETTUNO website and to send requests, is necessary and instrumental to use of the online services. It is therefore necessary for fulfilment of a contract with the data subject or for implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request.

Processing of the user’s personal data for promotional and direct marketing purposes is subject to the data subject’s consent. This consent is voluntary and does not affect access to the website or requests for information, and can be withdrawn at any time via UNINETTUNO’s communication channels. Finally, processing of the user’s personal data for generation of internal statistics and for safe browsing is based on the legitimate interests of UNINETTUNO.
  • Data retention period. The retention period of browsing data collected using cookies varies: some is automatically deleted by the system at the end of the session, some is deleted after one day or one year, and some is persistent, as explained in more detail in point 2, above. Data actively communicated by the user is stored for a maximum period of 180 days and, if a contract is not concluded within this time, will not be shared with any other party and will be deleted. Personal data necessary for sending promotional communications, on the other hand, is stored until completion of the activity or withdrawal of consent. Finally, data for use of the online services is stored until the end of the contract and subsequently archived until expiry of the ordinary limitation period pursuant to Article 2946 of the Italian Civil Code (10 years) and then deleted.
  • Data recipients.
