The ‘owner’ of the processing

Following consultation of this site, data relating to identified or identifiable persons may be processed.
The “owner” of their processing is UNI – Ente italiano di normazione, whose registered office is in Milan (Italy), Via Sannio 2, 20137.

Place of data processing

The processing operations connected to the web services of this site take place at the aforementioned premises of UNI and are carried out only by technical personnel of the Office in charge of processing, or by persons in charge of occasional maintenance operations.

No data from the web service is disclosed or disseminated.

The personal data provided by users requesting information material (bulletins, CD-ROMs, newsletters, annual reports, answers to queries, acts and measures, etc.) are used solely for the purpose of performing the service or provision requested and are communicated to third parties only if necessary for that purpose.

Types of data processed

Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, in the course of their normal operation, certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This is information that is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but which by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and computer environment.

This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct operation and is deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on this site entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, which is necessary to reply to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Specific summary information will be progressively reported or displayed on the pages of the site set up for particular services on request.

About Cookies

It is possible that, while browsing this Site, certain user information may be collected through cookies.
Cookies are small text files that contain information stored directly on your computer. Cookies make it possible to collect information such as the type of browser used, time spent on the site, pages visited. This information is used for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display data more effectively and to personalise the user experience when using the site. Cookies are also used to recognise the computer or device being used by the user in order to simplify navigation (e.g. by remembering the items in the user’s shopping cart on the e-commerce site). The user can refuse to accept cookies by following the instructions in their browser. However, if you do not accept them, certain functionalities of the site may be impaired.

a. Technical cookies.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of ‘carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service’.
They are not used for any further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
Users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies.

b. Profiling cookies.
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles of users and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of such devices and thus express his/her valid consent.

In the same Provision, the Guarantor also categorised cookies according to the entity that acts as the controller of the personal data collected by the cookie, distinguishing between first-party and third-party cookies.

1. First-party cookies.
These are cookies managed by the site owner. For these cookies, the obligation to provide information lies with the site owner. It is also the site owner’s obligation to indicate how the cookie can be blocked.

2. Third-party cookies.
These are cookies managed by a third party other than the site owner. For these cookies, the obligation to provide information and an indication of how the cookie can be blocked is the responsibility of the third party, while the site owner is obliged to include on the site the link to the third party’s site where these elements are available.
In both types of cookie (first-party or third-party), the collection of consent, which is necessary if the cookie is a profiling cookie, takes place by means of a banner on the home page of the site.

Below is a list of all the cookies used by this Website.
Please note that blocking technical cookies may affect the functionality of this website.
