Although this information is not collected in order to be associated with identifying interested parties, by its nature it could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow the identification of the interested parties.
This data is only used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning, and is deleted immediately after processing.

The entry of personal data in order to take advantage of the specific services offered by the site (such as the contact form, subscribing to the newsletter or submitting an application) requires the collection and processing by the data controller of the data voluntarily provided by users/contractors, necessary to reply to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the communication.

For the processing of your personal data for the purposes referred to in this paragraph, it is not necessary to obtain your consent, as the legal basis for the processing is, according to current legislation, the performance of a contract and the fulfilment of a legal obligation.
Your personal data will be processed for the time necessary to pursue the stated purpose and, thereafter, stored only for the period of time necessary to comply with the statutory requirements.
Your personal data will be processed in order to comply with the requests that you may make from time to time through the Site, such as, by way of example but not limited to, the request for information through the “Contact” form or the registration on the Site.

However, if you ask to be registered on the Site, your personal data will be kept until you decide to remain registered.
