The collection and treatment of the personal data of the users of the Website is generally limited to only the connection data, that is to say the data which the computer systems and software processes which run the Website acquire in the course of their normal operation and whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. Into this category of data fall the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Website, the addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) annotation of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method of use in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the code number indicating the status of the reply given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relative to the user’s operating system. This information is not collected in order to be associated to identified users and parties, but it could, by its very nature, by way of formulations and association with other data held by third parties, permit identification of users. The connection data are collected and processed for the sole purpose of extracting anonymous statistical information regarding access and use of the Website in order to check on correct functioning and to improve the content and said functioning. The connection data are deleted immediately following the analysis in anonymous form; they could be used for the ascertainment of liability in the event of any criminal acts performed to the detriment of the Website or through the Website: without prejudice to that possibility, in general the user’s connection data are not preserved for more than seven days or in compliance with the term established by the applicable law.
Data provided voluntarily by the user
We also collect and process personal data (e.g. contact details such as first name, last name, telephone number, email address; corporate details such as head office address, telephone number, email addresses, information regarding business activities; information regarding goods or transport; third party data only where strictly necessary for the purposes of the services required and exclusively for that purpose) provided voluntarily by the user (and with the specific consent of the latter, where required) when the user uses the Website, or at the request of the user for the services offered by the website – and for the fulfilment of reciprocal contractual obligations deriving from the relationship established by the user or the provision of services strictly connected thereto or necessary for that reason – such as log in or registration on the website, request for a quote, tracking of goods, on-line invoicing, participation in a programme or other initiative offered on the Website, or to control access to areas protected by password or management of requests for information received from the user; or, with the voluntary and optional consent of the user, in the event of a request for sending of information or informational, promotional or advertising materials, newsletters or even employment applications or curriculum vitae sent in by the user.
Again with the specific voluntary and optional consent of the user, we collect and process personal data (such as, in addition to those indicated above, information relative to habits, interests, preferences, consumption propensities, user’s profile, especially with reference to transport of goods) for profiling, surveys of the level of satisfaction, compilation of internal statistics, customer loyalty schemes and marketing purposes, such as sending to the user – also by way of automatic calling systems without human intervention, newsletters, emails, text messages –information and updating on products, services and promotional and commercial offers.
Usually we do not collect or process sensitive data (personal data capable of revealing racial or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or other beliefs, political opinions, membership of political parties or trade unions, associations or organisations of a religious, philosophic, political or trade union nature or personal data capable of revealing the state of health or sex life), unless the sensitive data can influence the provision of the service requested or the performance of the contract; in those cases, we can collect and process the sensitive data only with the express consent of the user.

The personal data required for the provision of the services requested by the user (including request for a quote, tracking of goods, on-line invoicing), to perform reciprocal contractual obligations deriving from the contractual relationships established with the user, for the provision of services strictly connected or necessary to same, are strictly necessary for the specific purpose of the processing.
