With the consent of the interested parties, activities of analysis of navigation data and purchase and professional choices (“profiling”) are carried out with electronic instruments in order to improve the marketing of the companies of the 24 ORE Group. Failure to consent to profiling activities would make it impossible to improve the marketing offer in order to make it conform to the interests of users.

Data provided voluntarily by the user
The types of personal data collected and processed on the website of the 24 ORE Group are those necessary for the provision of the various services provided.
The data collected are processed by paper, automated and telematics and with logic strictly related to the purposes of treatment.

Navigation data
It is useful to know that the software procedures of the site acquire, in the course of their normal operation, some personal data (navigation data) whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. Although this information is not intended to be associated with identified users, by their nature, if associated with other data held by third parties (eg your internet service provider), could allow the identification of users. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the site, URL (Uniform Resource Locator) 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 indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc..) and other parameters regarding the operating system and computer environment. These data are used only for the purpose of anonymous statistics on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning.

The data controller and, depending on the service requested, the designated managers retain, for a limited period in accordance with the law, the trace (LOG) of the connections/navigations made in order to respond to any requests from judicial authorities or other public body entitled to request this trace for the verification of any responsibility in case of computer crimes.

The conferment of data
Apart from that specified for navigation data, the user is free to give or not to give the personal data requested in the registration forms for services. On these forms, however, some data may be marked as required, it should be understood that these data are necessary for the provision of the requested service. If these data are not provided, the requested service will not be provided and you will not be able to take advantage of the related opportunities.
At the moment of the eventual conferment of the data, the interested party is provided with an informative report containing all the prescriptions dictated by the GDPR. The interested party is then called upon to express his or her informed consent, free of charge, expressed in a specific form and documented in the form prescribed by law, where required by the same. If personal data is provided in subsequent phases, additions may be made to the information previously provided and new consents to processing may be requested.

Security measures adopted for the protection of collected data
Gruppo 24 ORE uses “secure” architectures and technologies to protect personal data against undue disclosure, alteration or improper use. The protections activated on personal data aim, in particular, to minimize the risk of destruction or loss, even accidental, of data, unauthorized access or treatment that is not allowed or does not conform to the purposes of collection. Periodic “Risk analysis” activities are carried out in order to verify adherence to the defined standards and, if necessary, to adopt new security measures following organizational changes and technological innovations or changes in the type of data collected. Security measures are constantly monitored and periodically checked. The subjects to whom the personal data refer have the right at any time to exercise their rights as provided by the GDPR. Requests should be addressed to the e-mail address privacy@info.ilsole24ore.com or to the specific addresses indicated in the information provided to users at the time of any collection of personal data.

A cookie is a small text file containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and your terminal (usually the browser) and is normally used by the manager of the website to store the information necessary to improve navigation within the site or to send advertisements in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the web. When you visit the same site or any other site again, the user’s device checks for the presence of a recognized cookie so that it can read the information it contains. The different cookies contain different information and are used for different purposes (efficient navigation in the pages of the same site, profiling in order to send targeted promotional messages, analysis of the number of visits to the site).
