You are furthermore invited to read, if you have not already done so, the Terms of Use of the Website as they also contain important indications about the security systems adopted by the Website.

Browsing through the Website is free and does not require any registration, except for some areas where the user can freely and expressly provide a series of data concerning his person to access specifically identified services (e.g., to be able to proceed with purchases, subscribe to the newsletter or request information from us, etc.). Should the visitor, therefore, intend providing us with his personal data to access such additional services, he will be expressly informed pursuant to Legislative Decree No. 196 of 30 June 2003 “Personal Data Protection Code” (the “Code”) and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 “General Data Protection Regulation” (the “Regulation”), along with the indication (by way of illustration) of the purposes and methods of using the data by Nventive Communication ., as well as the right to request at any time access to, the erasure of the data or their updating. Any reference to the Code found in the Privacy Policy, and in the Website in general, must be considered valid and effective within the limits and to the extent that the legal rules recalled remain in force subsequently to the implementation date of the Regulation (25 May 2018).
