Personal Data processed

Pursuant to Regulation, personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Against this background, I inform you that I process the following personal data:

  1. Personal data spontaneously submitted by the Visitor

Generic contact



In order to send Visitors my Newsletter, I will process their e-mail address, possibly associated to their name and the name of the company they work for. The processing does not regard the special categories of personal data referred to articles 9 and 10 of the Regulation.

This processing activity is based on the Visitor’s consent, on the terms of article 6(1)(a) of the Regulation: the Visitor’s data will be processed with the exclusive aim of allowing us to send our Newsletter, and shall be stored and processed until such time in which the Visitor decides to revoke their consent. Visitors will be able to revoke their consent at any time, by sending an e-mail to and/or by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link within the Newsletter itself.

We might also use navigation data for the identification of liabilities in case of electronic crimes against the Website.
