Privacy and Cookie Policy

SIMPLIFIED PRIVACY POLICY

The purpose of this privacy policy is to provide maximum transparency regarding the information that the site collects and how it is used. In compliance with national legislation (Legislative Decree June 30, 2003, No. 196, Personal Data Protection Code, and subsequent amendments) and European regulation (European Regulation on Personal Data Protection No. 2016/679, GDPR), this site respects and protects the privacy of visitors and users, making every possible and proportionate effort not to infringe on the rights of users.

This site does not display advertisements or use data for advertising purposes. However, it uses third-party services to improve the site's usability. These third parties may collect user data and use it to deliver personalized advertisements on other sites. Nevertheless, this site makes every possible effort to protect user privacy and minimize the collection of personal data. For example, the site may use YouTube videos on some pages, which are set up not to send cookies (and, therefore, not collect data) until the user clicks "OK" on the cookie banner. Instead of the video, you will see a placeholder. The site also uses social plugins to facilitate the sharing of articles on social networks. These plugins are configured to send cookies (and potentially collect data) only after the user clicks on the plugin.

For your information, cookie management can be complicated, both on the part of the site manager (who may not be able to manage third-party cookies correctly) and on the part of the user (who may block essential cookies for the site's functionality). Therefore, a better and simpler way to protect privacy is to use anti-tracking tools, which block site tracking (read -> Protecting Online Privacy. We recommend using Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin).

For more information, you can read the full policy below.

Data Controllers

The data controller, as required by current legislation, is Martina Piccinato with headquarters in Via dell' Artigianato 6, San Bonifacio (VR), which can be contacted via email at info@piccinatoserbatoi.com.

Legal Basis for Processing

This site primarily processes data based on user consent. Consent is obtained through the banner at the bottom of the page. By using or visiting the site, visitors and users accept this privacy policy and consent to the processing of their personal data in relation to the methods and purposes described below, including any disclosure to third parties if necessary for service delivery. Additional consents related to specific service purposes may be collected through communication or service request forms.

Data provision and, consequently, consent to data collection and processing is optional. Users can refuse consent and can withdraw consent already given at any time (through the banner at the bottom of the page or browser settings for cookies). However, refusing consent may lead to the impossibility of providing certain services, and the browsing experience may be compromised.

Data collected for site security and prevention of abuse and spam, as well as data for site traffic analysis (statistics) in aggregated form, is processed based on the legitimate interest of the data controller in protecting the site and its users. In such cases, users always have the right to object to data processing (see User Rights below).

Purposes of Processing

In addition to purposes related to providing the service, the processing of data collected by the site is aimed at the following purposes:

Statistics (Analysis)

None of this information is related to the physical person-user of the site, and it does not allow their identification in any way. No consent is required for these cookies.

Security

Collection of data and information to protect the site (anti-spam filters, firewall, virus detection) and users, and to prevent or uncover fraud or abuse that may harm the website. Data is recorded automatically and may also include personal data (IP address) that, as required by law, may be used to block attempts to damage the site or cause harm to other users or engage in harmful or criminal activities. This data is never used for identifying or profiling the user and is periodically deleted. No consent is required for these cookies.

Ancillary Activities

Data for analytics purposes (statistics) is stored in an aggregated form for 24 months.

Transfer of Data to Third Parties

Data collected by the site is generally not provided to third parties unless specifically requested by the judicial authority and in the only cases provided by law or if necessary for the provision of a specific service requested by the user. Security checks or site optimization.

Transfer of Data to Non-EU Countries

The hosting provider's servers, the Data Controller, are located within the European Economic Area (EEA).

Security Measures

We process visitor/user data in a lawful and proper manner, adopting the appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or unauthorized destruction of data. We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information during transit. Data is processed using computers and/or IT-enabled tools, following organizational procedures and modes strictly related to the purposes indicated. In addition to the Data Controller, in some cases, data may be accessible to categories of appointed personnel involved in the organization of the site or external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, hosting providers).

Cookies

This site uses cookies, text files that are registered on the user's terminal or that allow access to information on the user's terminal. Cookies are used to store information about visitor preferences and to verify the correct operation of the site, as well as to personalize the content of the pages according to the type of browser used or to simplify navigation by automating procedures and for analyzing site usage by visitors.

This site uses the following types of cookies:

Technical Cookies

These cookies are used solely to transmit an electronic communication, to ensure the correct display of the site, and navigation within it. In addition, they allow the distinction between users connected to provide a requested service to the right user and for site security reasons. Some of these cookies are deleted when the browser is closed (session cookies), while others have a longer duration (e.g., the cookie necessary to keep the user's consent to the use of cookies, which lasts one year). No consent is required for these cookies.

Analytics Cookies

These cookies are used directly by the site operator to collect information in an aggregated form on the number of users and on how these users visit the site. They are similar to technical cookies if the service is anonymized.

Important Information

By clicking "OK" on the banner at the bottom of each page, visitors expressly consent to the use of cookies and similar technologies and, in particular, the registration of these cookies on their terminal for the purposes indicated above, or access through cookies to information on their terminal.

Disabling Cookies

Users can refuse the use of cookies and can revoke a previously given consent at any time. Since cookies are related to the browser used, they can be disabled directly from the browser, thus refusing/revoking consent for the use of cookies, or through the banner at the bottom of the page.

DISABLING COOKIES MAY IMPEDE THE CORRECT USE OF SOME FUNCTIONS OF THE SITE, especially the services provided by third parties may not be accessible, and therefore may not be viewable:

• YouTube videos or other video sharing services;

• Social network social buttons;

• Google maps.

Instructions for disabling cookies can be found on the following web pages:

Mozilla Firefox - Microsoft Internet Explorer - Microsoft Edge - Google Chrome - Opera - Apple Safari

Third-Party Cookies

This site also acts as an intermediary for third-party cookies (such as social network buttons) used to provide additional services and features to visitors and simplify site use or provide personalized advertising. This site has no control over third-party cookies, which are entirely managed by third parties, and cannot access the information collected through those cookies. Information on the use of these cookies and their purposes, as well as on how to disable them, is provided directly by third parties on the pages indicated below.

Please note that user tracking does not result in identifying the individual user, unless the user is already registered with the service and is also logged in, in which case it is understood that the user has already expressed their consent directly to the third party when registering for the service (e.g., Facebook).

Social Network Plugins

This site also incorporates plugins and/or buttons to allow easy sharing of content on your favorite social networks. When you visit a page on our site that contains a plugin, your browser connects directly to the servers of the social network from where the plugin is loaded, which server can track your visit to our website and, if applicable, associate it with your social account, especially if you are logged in at the time of the visit or have recently browsed one of the websites containing social plugins. If you do not wish the social network to record the data relating to your visit to our website, you must exit your social account and probably delete the cookies that the social network has installed in your browser.

The collection and use of information by these third parties are governed by their respective privacy policies, to which you should refer.
