In compliance with the obligations deriving from national legislation (Legislative Decree No. 196 of June 30, 2003, Personal Data Protection Code, as amended) and European legislation (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. 

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 ads. personalized advertising on other sites. However, this site makes every effort possible to protect users’ privacy and minimize the collection of personal data. 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 on the plugin. 

For information purposes, we would like to point out that the management of cookies is complicated, both by the site manager (who may not be able to correctly manage third-party cookies) and by the user (who may block cookies that are essential for the operation of the site). site). So a better and simpler way to protect privacy is to use anti-tracer tools, which therefore block site tracking (read -> Protect online privacy. We recommend using Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin)
