This data is processed, for the time strictly necessary, for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its regular operation.

2.2. Data provided voluntarily by the user
The voluntary and explicit sending of e-mails to the addresses indicated in the different access channels of this site and the compilation of the specifically prepared "formats" (windows), entail the subsequent acquisition of the address and data of the sender/user, necessary to respond to the instances produced and/or provide the requested service.
