Privacy Policy e Cookie


Hello and welcome to the privacy and cookie policy page of this website.

As you may know, the 25 May 2018 one has entered into force European legislation, known as GDPR, which indicates to websites how to manage any personal data collected concerning European citizens. Complying with these provisions is mandatory.
For this reason, below you will find both the privacy and cookie policy adopted by this site. These documents are published in an attempt to explain you - in "simple and clear language", as required by the article 12 of the GDPR - if and how the site manages your personal data and what your rights are.


Reading the following privacy policy is useful in case you have registered on the site, i.e. if you have sent some personal information such as your email address and your name. If instead you have never filled in any form, your data are not processed by me in any way and therefore reading the following may not be useful.

The European regulation for the protection of personal data that requires the drafting of this document is the number 679/2016, known as GDPR, and subsequent amendments. Based on the article 13 of this regulation I must provide you with some information in order to communicate how the data released by you will be processed. Here is a list of the information you will have access to by continuing to read this statement:

  1. The identity and contact details of the data controller and, where applicable, of its representative
  2. The contact details of the data protection officer, where applicable
  3. The purposes of the processing for which the personal data are intended as well as the legal basis of the processing

  6. The existence of the right of the interested party to ask the data controller for access to personal data and the correction or cancellation of the same or the limitation of the processing concerning him or to oppose their treatment, in addition to the right to data portability

As you will almost certainly know, the ability to afford proprietary servers to which you have exclusive access and on which to publish your websites is a prerogative reserved for a few very large companies in the world. All other websites are hosted on servers made available, on payment, by Host Providers. There can also be thousands of websites on each server. Of course, this website is also based on a Host Provider. Therefore all data manipulated by the site are stored on computers to which we have no direct access and of which we cannot respond (but this applies to almost every website on the planet).
Some data is also stored on third-party servers, whose servers may also be outside the European Union
For all these reasons, there are more than one data controllers and are listed below:
