The purpose of the privacy statement is to provide maximum transparency regarding the information the site collects and how it uses it.
In compliance with the obligations deriving from national legislation (Legislative Decree 30 June 2003 No. 196, Code regarding the protection of personal data, and subsequent amendments) and European (European Regulation for the protection of personal data No. 679/2016, GDPR ), this site respects and protects the privacy of visitors and users, making every effort possible and proportionate so as not to damage users’ rights.
in particular, this site does not publish advertisements, does not use data for the purpose of sending advertising, but makes use of third-party services in order to improve the use of the site, third parties that could collect user data and then use it to send personalized advertisements to other sites. For example, the site uses YouTube video in some cases, which are set to not send cookies (and therefore not collect data) until the user starts the video. You can see, in fact, that in place of the video there is only a placeholder. The site also uses social plugins to simplify the sharing of articles on social networks. These plugins are configured so that they send cookies (and therefore possibly collect data) only after the user has clicked.
