Type of data processed

The following data are processed when browsing the CSI Piemonte websites:

  • Data willingly provided by the user
    The willing and explicit transmission of personal data to the email addresses stated in the different access channels of the present website implies the subsequent acquisition of user’s data necessary to respond to the requests made and/or provide the requested service. Additional information relating to the processing of user data with respect to any services requested is reported or displayed in the pages of the website set up for the specific requested services.
  • Browsing data
    The simple navigation of the website does not require personal data granting, except those personal data automatically collected described below. The computer systems and applications dedicated to the functioning of the website identify, during browsing, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is data that is not collected in order to identify users but that, by its very nature, could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow them to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the website, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to send the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the computer environment of users. This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on use of the website and it may be used, at the request of the relevant Authorities, exclusively for investigations or assessments of liability in the judicial venue, in compliance with existing regulations.
  • Cookies
    Cookies are small text files that the web server deposits on the device through which users browse, without identifying them. A cookie cannot read personal data saved on the hard disc or cookie files created by other web sites, as the only information it can contain is that provided by users themselves. The pages of CSI Piemonte websites use the following types of cookies:

    1. technical cookies: they are not permanently stored on the user's device and are necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the sites. Such use is limited to session cookies and in general to domain cookies, such as user preference cookies and tracking cookies (e.g. BlueStripe.PVN). The use of these cookies is done in such a way as to avoid the use of other IT techniques that could potentially compromise the confidentiality of users' browsing, as they do not enable the acquisition of personal identification data of the user.

    2. analytics cookies: in order to facilitate the navigation of the CSI Piemonte websites and the way visitors arrive there, the site uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, which adheres to the privacy principles established by the United States government (US Safe Harbor Privacy Principles), to whose Privacy Policy we refer you. To analyze the points of interest of the sites visited by the user, Google Analytics uses cookies for statistical purposes and collects information in aggregated form only, without associating the user's IP address to any other data held by Google itself. Tools have been introduced that reduce the identification power of cookies by masking significant portions of the IP. In addition, Google Analytics settings have been activated so that Google does not cross-reference the data collected with other information it already has.

Browsing the CSI Piemonte websites implies acceptance of the conditions of use, including the functionalities connected to cookies, which can be disabled using the specific options present in the different types of browser. The cookies used by CSI Piemonte do not collect any information on the user's identity, nor any personal data. The information is always processed in aggregate and anonymous form. Except as indicated above, the websites of CSI Piemonte do not use other cookies to transmit information of a personal nature nor do they use any other system for tracking users.

If you do not wish to receive or store cookies, you can change your browser's security settings (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari Opera, etc.).
