Place of personal data processing

Data processing in connection with Portal web services will be performed at the aforementioned OSS Law Firm’s Office under the sole care of Firm’s technical staff and, eventually, persons in charge of maintenance operation.

Personal Data communication and the eventual diffusion will be in compliance with Data Protection Code provisions: upon user’s agreement or when laid down by law, according to the discipline in the articles 24 and 25 of the Code.

Categories and typologies of personal data to be processed

Navigation data

Electronic systems and software set to run the Portal, collect some personal data implicit with the use of internet communication protocols.

Although collected information is not associated to identifiable users, by its own nature may allow for user’s identification if processed and associated with third parties data.

This category of data includes: IP addresses or domain names of computers accessing the Portal, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of requested resources, the time of the request, the method for submitting the request to the server, the answer’s file size, the numerical code showing the status of the answer supplied by the server (ok, error, etc.) and other parameters relative to operative system and user’s computer environment.

Those data are used only for anonymous statistical information on Portal’s use and to check for Portal correct functioning and once processed are immediately deleted. In case of crimes against the Portal all collected data could be used to investigate for responsibilities: in all other cases, data on web contacts are not stored permanently, unless users request to so (i.e. access to their own summary pages of requested services, information etc.).

Data supplied by users on a voluntary basis

The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of e-mails to the addresses specified on the Portal, requires the acquisition of sender’s address in order to give feedback on his requests, and implies also the acquisition of other personal data present in the message.

Specific and synthetic informative will be progressively reported or displayed in the Portal sections dedicated to on-line services.

Use of Cookies or user’s tracing/monitoring systems.

With this regard, no User’s personal data is acquired by the Portal.

The OSS’s Law Portal doesn’t use Cookies for the transmission of personal information or persistent cookies for permanent users tracing.

The use of the so called session cookies (which are not permanently stored in user’s computers and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identification data (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary for a safe and efficient navigation of the Portal.

Session cookies protect from user’s identification while collecting personal data, and are used instead of other electronic techniques potentially harmful to the user’s navigation privacy.

Optional nature of data supplying

Nevertheless, Users are always free to provide personal data when requesting for special services (legal on-line consulting, request of information, registration to the Newsletters service, etc.), but if they refuse to provide certain data, in some cases, it won’t be possible to process their requests.

Data processing modalities

The personal data are processed with electronic means for the time strictly necessary to fulfill the purpose for their collection.

We implement specific safety measures to prevent data loss, illegitimate or unfair use of data and unauthorized access to the Portal databanks.

Concerned persons rights

The subjects whom personal data refer to, have at any time the right to obtain a confirmation on whether their data still exists or not and have the right to know their content and origin, to verify their accuracy or to ask for their integration or update, or for their rectification (art. 7 of legislative decree n. 196/2003).

According to the same article, users have the right to ask for deletion, anonymization or blocking of illegitimately processed data, and also to oppose, on legitimate grounds, to their processing.

All requests must be submitted to the Data Controller, without formalities, by sending a communication to the following e-mail address
