It is the user’s responsibility to read the Privacy Policy before providing data.

Users confirm to belong to the categories authorised to access the Restricted Area when providing data, and they confirm also the authenticity and correctness of the data provided.

They therefore commit to keeping data updated so that they are always correct.

When collecting data in the Restricted Area, the asterisk indicates the mandatory or voluntary character of the information requested. Mandatory information is strictly necessary to carry out the services offered in the Restricted Area and failure to provide such information prevents access to the same.

Newsletter and personal data processing

If you gave your consent via a flag to receive commercial information or by filling out the registration form in the Restricted Area, your data processing may be carried out to send direct marketing communications, newsletters, advertising materials, market research materials via traditional contact systems and automated IT systems including commercial or promotional communications via e-mails or text messages; this is the consent of the data subject given in compliance with this Privacy Policy. In this case the consent to personal data processing is not a contract obligation. The data subjects have the right to provide personal data; should such data not be provided, no marketing activity can be carried out.

The Data Controller informs that with regards to the right to object to processing personal data for marketing purposes data subjects shall have the right to exercise such right partly, i.e. objecting for example only to promotional communications sent via automated and/or digital tools or, alternatively via traditional ones.
