The collection and transmission of said data is implicit in the use of internet protocols and in the registration of so-called log files, which can collect an amount of data on you, such as: IP addresses of your computers, domain names, browsing data as you move between site pages and other parameters related to the software or operating system you are using.

We will process your data, within the bounds of the privacy act, in order to provide you with the services requested and (regarding services that involve payment only) for invoicing purposes and to fulfil related tax obligations. Data registered may be used for the purpose of producing statistical information on the use of the site, for developing the site's functionality and checking it is running properly, and for improving user satisfaction levels. The information collected may also be used for business development or for improving the site owner's marketing strategies. Where the law so requires, data are kept for consultation by the relevant authorities needing to run checks.

Information collected in this manner is used by the data controller, or other persons delegated by it. The site gives the telephone or fax numbers and email addresses of the site's owner. You can use this contact information to send personal information: this is optional and voluntarily and any data you send will be used only for the purpose of processing requests submitted by you.

All data are processed mainly by automated electronic means, though they may occasionally be printed for processing in hardcopy form. Whatever the case, the information collected is used in a lawful and relevant manner and within the bounds of this privacy statement. The above-mentioned data are gathered in anonymous form with the specific intention of not identifying you as an individual. Nonetheless, in some cases, they could identify you when processed and associated with data held by third parties. We will not ask you for sensitive data, nor will we accept sensitive data, which will be deleted if submitted.


Categories of parties that data may be communicated to.

The data controller limits access to its database, containing the data gathered, to authorized personnel only who are specifically given the task of processing the data and who, in this case, are entitled to use them only for the purposes indicated herein. Some operations involving the data gathered - such as the site's technical running or hardware maintenance - may be outsourced to a third party who, at the same time, will be given the task of processing data banks solely for the purposes stated by the site owner.
