The personal data provided by users who submit requests or intend to use services or products offered through the website as well as to receive further specific content are used only to respond to requests or perform the service requested and are communicated to third parties only where this is necessary for that purpose. The legal basis for this processing is the need to respond to the requests of the data subjects or to perform activities provided for in the agreements defined with the data subjects.

Browsing data.

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate the website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the communication protocols of the Internet. This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects but, by its very nature, could allow users to be identified through processing and association with data held by third parties. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the website, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) of requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code showing the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc..) and other parameters regarding the user’s operating system and computer environment. These data are used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the website and to check its correct functioning and are deleted after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the website.


The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses specified on the website entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender' address, necessary to respond to requests, and any other personal data included in the message. Specific summary information will be progressively reported or displayed on the pages of the website set up for particular services on request. CIFA uses personal identification data (for example: name, surname, company name, tax code and / or VAT number, address, telephone, e-mail, bank and / or payment details) communicated by you for the purpose of liberal donations or to be able to use the services reserved for users of the website of the Organization.

A cookie is a textual element that is inserted into the hard disk of a computer only after authorization. Cookies have the function of streamlining web traffic analysis or signalling when a specific website is visited and allow web applications to send information to individual users. No user’s personal data is acquired by the website in this regard. We do not use cookies to transmit personal information, nor do we use the so-called persistent cookies, i.e. systems for tracking users. The use of the so-called session cookies is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable the safe and efficient browsing of the website. The so-called session cookies used on the website avoid resorting to other computer techniques that are potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of user navigation and do not allow the acquisition of personal data identifying the user.


Apart from the information specified for browsing data, the user is free to provide personal data to request the services offered by the Controller. Failure to provide such data may make it impossible to obtain what has been requested.
