1) Browsing data
In general, it is possible to browse the website without providing any personal data. The website is divided into separate sections; some of them may require that the users enter data, while this is not necessary for other sections.
During normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used for the operation of this website acquire some personal data whose transmission is implicit when using Internet communication protocols.
This is information that, by its nature, could, by being associated and processed together with data held by third parties, allow the identification of users/visitors (e.g. IP address, domain names of the computers used by the users/visitors who connect to the website, etc.).
These data are used mainly for statistical information, to check that the website functions properly and to make browsing more efficient.
Data on web contacts are not stored once they have been processed, except in the case of investigations of computer-related offences against the website.
No data that originate from the web service will be communicated or disseminated.

Personal data provided by users/visitors will be communicated to third parties only in case such communication is necessary to satisfy the requests of those users/visitors.

Modalities of processing
Processing is done with the use of automated tools (e.g. by using electronic procedures and means) and/or manually (e.g. on paper) for the time period that is strictly necessary for the fulfilment of the objectives for which the data was collected and, in any case, in compliance with current legislation on the matter. With regard to such processing, VSM has adopted appropriate security measures so as to guarantee the integrity and confidentiality of the data.

Cookies Policy for visitors of the website

General information on cookies
Cookies are short text files (letters and/or numbers) which allow the web server to memorise information on the client (the user’s Internet browser) to be reused during the visit of the Internet site (session cookies) or after such visit, even for several days (persistent cookies). Cookies are memorised, based on the user’s preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Cookies do not register the user’s personal information; no identifiable data are memorised. If you wish to disable the use of cookies, you need to personalise the settings of your browser. The browser’s setting can be set to delete cookies or to activate a warning when cookies are saved on your computer. To proceed without modifying the cookie memorisation rules just continue browsing.
Depending on their duration, cookies are classified as session cookies (i.e. temporary cookies which are deleted automatically by the terminal at the end of the browsing session when the browser is shut down) and persistent cookies (i.e. the cookies that are memorised by the terminal until they expire or are deleted by the user).
Cookies have various purposes. Firstly, they are used for the transmission of communication or to provide the services requested by the user; more specifically, they allow and improve the browsing of the Internet site, they carry out computer authentications and prevent abuse, they monitor sessions, they improve the browsing experience of the users, e.g. by keeping the connection to reserved areas open during browsing through the pages of the website without the user needing to reinsert the User ID and password and by memorising specific information concerning the users (for example, preferences, the type of browser and computer used).
The aforementioned cookies are called “technical” (their use does not require the user’s consent), in the sense that, without them, some of the operations described above could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure.
On the other hand, if cookies are used for other purposes, mainly for the analysis of behaviour and for sending personalised promotional and advertising messages (so-called “profiling” cookies) or even just to obtain, via services provided by third parties, aggregated information on the number of users and on how they visit the website (so-called “analysis cookies”), the user’s consent is necessary. In fact and pursuant to current law, before the website sends these cookies to the terminal, at the moment when the user accesses the Home Page or another page of the website, a banner pops up with a first synthetic disclosure regarding the use of cookies and the collection of consent, which the user can provide by continuing to browse and by selecting an element in the banner or by closing the banner itself.
In any case, cookies may be read or modified only by the Internet site that generated them; they cannot be used to retrieve any data from the user’s terminal and they cannot transmit computer viruses.

Use of cookies by this Site
This Site may use session and persistent cookies. The types of cookies that are generated directly by this Site are technical cookies, used to manage the user interface (e.g. to register the user’s preferences, such as language, the viewing format of the page, the connection area), for a better usability of the site and of its audio-visual content, for the correct operation of the connection (e.g. by appropriately directing the user’s requests to several servers).

Google Analytics
This website uses the Google Analytics web analysis service. The information generated by cookies regarding the use of the site by the user is transmitted to a Google server, where it is memorised. Google will provide the administrator of this website with reports and statistics regarding the use of the website, without associating the IP address transmitted by the user’s browser.
