This page describes how the website manages the user’s personal data.

This notice is posted, in compliance with article no. 13, LD no. 196/2003 – Privacy Act, for users who interact with the company’s web services, electronically accessible from:

which is the home page of the official website.


This notice is posted solely for this website, not for any other website that users could link to.

This notice is also inspired by Recommendation no. 2/2001, which the European Privacy Authorities, gathered in the Group set up under article 29 of Directive no. 95/46/CE, adopted on 17th May 2001 to select some minimum requirements for the online collection of personal data, especially the methods, timeline and type of information that data controllers need to provide users with as they log in to a web page, regardless of the reason for doing so.


Visiting this website may result in the processing of personal data of identified or identifiable persons.

The data controller is the interim legal representative of Centro Padano Interscambio Merci S.p.A..



In connection with the web services of this website, data are processed at the company’s premises by technical staff of the designated data-processing office or occasionally by maintenance professionals. No personal data resulting from the web services will be disclosed or released. Personal data sent by users asking for information (newsletters, CDs, catalogues, price lists, answers, deeds, etc.) are solely used to provide the services as requested.



Browsing data. The digital systems and software procedures that operate this website normally collect some personal data which are automatically sent when using an Internet communication protocol. Such information is not collected to be matched with an identified user, but, by its nature, it could be processed or matched with third-party information, so that users could be identified. This kind of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the user’s computers, URIs (Uniform Resource Identifier), time and method of enquiry, size of file sent back, numerical code of the server’s response status (successful, error, etc.) and other settings of the user’s operating system and digital environment.

Such data are only used to produce anonymous statistics about how the website is used and to monitor its operation, and are immediately deleted once processed. Data could be used to investigate alleged cyber-crime committed against the website: except for such circumstance, right now data on web contacts do not last more then seven days.

User’s optional data. When users expressly and voluntarily decide to send en email to the addresses listed on this website, their addresses are saved in order to respond to their enquiries, along with any other personal detail that may be included in the message. Brief notices will be posted or shown on the pages of the website that provide special services.



No personal data are purposefully collected by the website. Cookies are not used to send personal information, and no persistent cookies or tracking systems whatsoever are used.

Use of “session cookies” (which are not permanently saved on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the sending of session IDs (numbers randomly generated by the server) for a safe, efficient exploration of the website. Session cookies used in this website prevent us using other electronic techniques that could potentially infringe on the user’s privacy and do not save the user’s ID details.


Except as stated for browsing data, users are free to provide their personal data or not. If they refuse to provide their personal data, they might be unable to receive what they asked for.


Personal data are processed with automatic media for just as long as needed to achieve the purposes they have been collected for. Specific security measures are taken to prevent any loss, illegal use, abuse or unauthorised access to any data.


Users who have provided their personal data are entitled to be confirmed of the existence of such data at any time and to be made aware of their contents and sources, to check if they are correct, and ask that they be completed or updated, or corrected (for further details, see art. 7, LD no. 196/2003). According to such article, users are entitled to have any illegally-processed data deleted, converted to anonymous data or blocked, and, at any rate, to oppose, on legitimate grounds, to have such data processed. Applications are to be submitted to the Data Controller. This is the “Privacy Policy” of this website and may be updated.
