Categories of Processed Data

Navigation Data

The information systems and software procedures relied upon to operate this web site acquire personal data as part of their standard functioning; the transmission of such data is an inherent feature of Internet communication protocols.

These plugins are programmed so as not to set any cookies when accessing the page, to safeguard the privacy of users.

Please note that if the user browses being logged into the social network then he has already consented to the use of cookies conveyed through this site at the time of registration to the social network.
The collection and use of information obtained by means of the plugin are governed by the respective privacy policies of the social networks, to which reference is made.
