While surfing this site, data concerning identified or identified individuals can be processed.

The owner of data processing is Panariagroup Industrie Ceramiche S.p.A., seated in Via Panaria Bassa 22/A 41034 Finale Emilia (MO).

Surfing data
Computer processing systems and all software procedures following the operation of this Web site, during normal operations, acquire some personal data items whose transmission is implied in the use of Internet communications protocols.

All this information is not gathered to be directly associated with identified individuals, but, due to their nature, could allow an identification of the users through processing and association with data held by third parties.

This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers of the users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the required resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained as a reply, the numeric code on the status of the reply sent by the server (ok, error, etc.) and other parameters linked with the user's OS and computer processing environment.

All these data items are used to get statistical anonymous information on the use of the site and to check its correct operation.

Synthetic information specifications shall be progressively written or displayed in the pages of the site dedicated to special optional services.

The use of session cookies (that are not persistently stored in the user's computer) is strictly linked with the transmission of session identifications (formed by random numbers generated by the server) required for a safe and efficient site surfing.

The session cookies used in this site prevent the recourse to other computer processing techniques that could be potentially detrimental to the secrecy of users' surfing and do not allow any users' personal identification data to be acquired.

To the purpose of the same article, the cancellation, conversion into anonymous information or freezing of processed data as an infringement of the laws can be asked. Further on, an objection to their processing can be raised at any time.

The requests must be sent to the owner of data processing or to the person in charge for the information to the party concerned, Mr. Juri Torreggiani, whose office is located in Reggio Emilia, via Piccard, 16/G, phone no. 0522 301169, fax no. 0522 387996, e-mail address; any request for explanation or information can be sent to this person.
