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 possible and proportionate effort not to infringe the rights of users.
This site does not publish advertisements, does not use data for the purpose of sending advertising, but it uses third-party services in order to improve the use of the site, third parties that may collect user data and then use them to send ads personalized advertising on other sites. However, this site makes every possible effort to protect the privacy of users and minimize the collection of personal data. For example, in some cases the site uses YouTube videos, which are set so as not to send cookies (and therefore not to collect data) until the user starts the video. In fact, you can see that instead of the video there is only a placeholder. The site also uses social plugins to make it easier to share 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, it is specified that the management of cookies is complicated, both by the site manager (who may not be able to manage third-party cookies correctly) and by the user (who may block cookies essential for the functioning of the site). So a better and simpler way to protect privacy lies in the use of anti-tracer tools.
