When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Purposes of the processing

Any personal information given or collected by connecting to the Website will be processed by the Company as data controller.

The information we collect, including personal information, are used for the following: to fulfill the user’s requests (e.g. management of requests for information); to communicate with the users for purposes related to the job application process; to provide the services and/or participation to initiatives and events available through the Website.

When the users are requested to provide personal information, e.g. when registering on the Website, the Company will inform them what personal information is necessary for the registration and what is optional. Failure to provide some items of information may make it impossible to proceed with the Activity. The provision of other information is entirely optional, but if not provided, some of the features of the services offered by the Company might be unavailable or limited.

Upon the user’s consent, the Data we collect through the newsletter subscription form (name, surname, email address) are used for sending communications and periodic updates, including invitations to events organized or managed by the Company. The provision of this Data is necessary to complete the subscription and register for the newsletter: if the user doesn’t provide the Data requested, he/she will not receive the Company’s newsletter. If a user wants to opt out of the newsletter service, he/she may do so at any time by following the instructions in each newsletter or by sending a communication to the Company.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
