Privacy

What personal data we collect and why we collect them:
On this site we use only technical cookies necessary for the correct operation of the site. Cookies are stored locally in the user’s browser storage area (see below). We do not collect personal and/or sensitive data.

Comments:
When a visitor leaves a comment on this site, we collect the data shown in the comment form, the visitor’s IP address and the browser user agent string to facilitate the tracking of spam. An anonymized string, called a hash, is generated from comment email address and can be provided to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of a comment, author’s gravatar profile picture is visible to the public next to the comment.

Media:
This site does not allow users to upload media. We suggest, however, to remove all metadata (ex: exif) from images that are to be shared over the internet.

Contact form:
Our contact form generates an email that is sent to the owner of the site, which is normally deleted within thirty days from the end of the procedure generated by the request. Under no circumstances that content will be used for activities other than those related to the request contained in the contact form, transferred to third parties, included in mailing lists or used for commercial or profiling purposes.

Technical cookies:
If you leave a comment on this site, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. They are used for your convenience so you do not have to re-enter your data when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for a year. If you have an account and access this site, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and is deleted when you close the browser. When you log in, several cookies will be set to save your login information and screen display options. The access cookies last two days while the cookies for the screen options last one year. If you select “Remember me” checkbox, your access will persist for two weeks. If you exit your account, access cookies will be removed. If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include personal data, but simply indicates the ID of last edited article. Expires after 1 day.

Content from other websites:
Articles on this site may could include embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.). This content is accessed exactly the same way as if the visitor is visiting the other website. These websites could collect data about you, use cookies, integrate additional third-party tracking, and monitor interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Access analysis systems (analytics):
The site does not use third-party statistical analysis systems, but uses the WP SlimStat plugin to know the number of visitors and to analyze the use of this website. WP-SlimStat uses cookies and does not associate the user’s actual IP address with other data. Furthermore, it is using a technique known as ‘IP mask’, which eliminates part of the information and makes the identification of the user totally impossible. The web server logs internet addresses of visitors exclusively for technical reasons, such as protection against spam and cyber attacks, in any case not associated with user’s data.

We do not share your data:
We do not share your data. This site is hosted on private servers under the full control of the site owner, located in the European Union (Italy and France).

As mentioned, the retention time of the data relating to the contact form is dependent on its content, but generally is kept for a month. Access statistical data are stored for six months. If you leave a comment, both the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely until deleted. This is done to automatic recognize and approve any subsequent author’s comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue. For users registered on this site, just member of the staff, we also store any personal information written in their user profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except for their username). Site administrator can also view and edit those informations.
