TRATTAMENTO DEI DATI PERSONALI (leggi l’informativa sulla privacy):

Personal data processing



Your personal data (hereinafter called "Data") will be processed by ICT technology and, for certain specific operations, on hard copy supports, by Marble Studio snc headquartered in Cesano Maderno (MB), Corso Roma, 11 (hereinafter referred to as "Marble Studio"), in its role as Data Controller (hereinafter referred to as “Controller”), pursuant to art. 13 of  Legislative Decree no. 196/3003 (hereinafter referred to as "Privacy code") to allow you to register with and access the IFDM.IT website (hereinafter referred to as the "Site"), as well as enabling you to use the services associated with the Site (for example: prize competitions, events, activities…, (hereinafter referred to as the "Services").



When you register with the site, you will be asked to enter certain Data. We invite you to verify which Data are indicated as mandatory and which, on the other hand, are optional, with the understanding that any failure to provide mandatory Data will prevent you from registering with the Site; failure to provide optional Data will not prevent you from registering with the Site but may impede your utilization of some Services and/or  some channels of communication and/or your participation in some events (unless the user supplies such Data at a later time). In particular, if the user fails to supply his cell phone number, it will not be possible to contact him by means of a text message or mms or any other form of mobile messaging, should he give his consent, in order to extend invitations to previews, events and/or he may not participate in competitions and/or surveys carried out via text message or mms or any other form of mobile messaging. The user will bear full and exclusive liability in this respect. The user may change his profile at any time and, on a case by case basis and subject to the Controller’s approval, may enter Data not previously provided in order to use Services and/or participate in activities which would otherwise not be accessible. On registering with the Site, users will have the benefit of a number of services exclusively reserved to registered users. The Site is managed by the Controller through periodic e-mailing activities addressed to the e-mail address provided by the User, and through the mailing of a newsletter to those users who have consented to receive it. Through these communications, the Controller will keep you informed with regard to Site Services, novelties regarding the Site and any initiatives being organized for Site users or, on a more exclusive basis, for registered users only (for example: prize contests, blogs, forums, chat rooms, invitations etc…). The newsletter may also contain advertising banners, advertisements and promotional offers, either published by the Controller or by third parties.


Registration for specific services

When you register for specific Services, you may be required to provide some further Data over and above the Data supplied at the time of registering with the Site, or when registering for other Services. In such cases, the Data will be classified as mandatory or optional, and will be subject to the same directives stipulated in the previous paragraph.


The purpose of data processing

Your Data will be processed by the Controller not only to allow you to use the Sites and every individual service for which no specific consent is required, but also:  (i) to allow you to enjoy particular Services for which your express consent is required;  (ii) to allow for the mailing of the newsletter, only effected with your express consent; (iii) to allow for the mailing of advertising material and the execution of direct sales activities, market research, surveys and studies or commercial communications regarding products or services pertaining to the Controller or to third parties (hereinafter referred to as “Direct Marketing Activities”) only with your express consent;  (iv) to allow for the communication of your Data to commercial partners (expressly indicated or listed on the Sites on each occasion, hereinafter referred to as "Communication to Commercial Partners"), only with your express consent; (v) to allow for the mailing of advertising material and the execution of direct sales activities, market research or commercial communications pertaining to the Controller’s or third parties’ products or services, based on profiling activities (hereinafter referred to as "Direct Marketing Activities with Profiling") only with your consent.


Sphere of Data communication and disclosure

The Controller will proceed to process your Data directly through its own technological infrastructures and/or will avail itself of the support of technological infrastructures supplied by third parties appointed to handle data processing.  The firm in charge of data processing activities and of managing the technological infrastructure is Medialab srl headquartered in Via Locchi, 6 -  28100 Novara.

You may ask to consult a list of any other individuals or entities appointed by the Controller to handle data processing activities by writing to the e-mail address info@ifdm.it. Single data processing operations will be assigned to individuals appointed to handle data processing. No Data is ever disclosed apart from that published voluntarily by the user on any shared areas of the sites made publicly accessible.  The Controller invites users to carefully evaluate possible disclosure or communication of their personal Data and/or information to third parties and will not be liable for any consequence that may derive from such disclosure.  


Underage users

The Controller encourages parents to monitor their children’s use of the Internet in order to ensure a safe and filtered use of its contents, also through the use of parent control tools. As well as guaranteeing an online environment suitable for minors, these tools are able to prevent the disclosure of personal Data by children and adolescents who use the Internet without their parents’ consent.  As far as the gathering and processing of personal Data is concerned, the Controller carries out no operation regarding the processing of minors’ personal details without obtaining their parents’ prior consent. Therefore, Site registration is only permitted to users who have reached the age of majority or users who have turned 14 and have their parents’ consent to do so. Furthermore, the Controller encourages the parents of registered minors to register with the Site themselves: in this way, parents are able to use the Services and be constantly updated on the initiatives offered by the Controller to their children; in this way parents may verify whether such activities reflect their expectations and their own educational models and experience.  With regard to the provision of some Services, the Controller does not ask Users to reveal their age, and/or is not in a position to learn the age of its Users. Therefore the Controller invites all users below the age of 18 not to reveal their personal Data without authorization from one of their parents, reserving the right to refuse access to the Services and/or to exclude from the Sites any user who has concealed the fact that he is a minor or who has in any case revealed his personal Data without his parents’ prior consent, despite being under the majority age of 18.  


Links to third party Sites and Services

The Sites and/or the other messages and/or communications the Controller sends to the user in the course of providing its Services, may contain banners, advertising messages and/or announcements published by third parties, advertisers or commercial partners of the Controller. The Controller informs users that, by responding to the offers published by the aforementioned third parties, users may purchase goods or services and access multimedia pages pertaining exclusively to said third parties who are in no way bound to follow the directives described herein and are beyond the Controller’s jurisdiction. Therefore, the Controller invites users to supply their Data to the aforementioned third parties only against an adequate guarantee of privacy and to pay the maximum attention before making use of the services offered, over which the Controller may exercise no control, and for which it will be in no way held liable.  


Site browsing and cookies

A "cookie" is a small quantity of data containing a single anonymous identification code which is sent to your browser from a web server and is subsequently memorized on the hard disk of the user’s computer.  The cookie is then reread and recognized exclusively by the website that has sent it every time a subsequent connection is made. The cookies used by the Controller are text files that the Sites transfer to the user’s computer in order to facilitate browsing.  Cookies enable a registered user to be recognized, so that he need not log in and enter his “password” each time he visits the Sites. Furthermore, cookies allow users to personalize their Site browsing by saving their favourite settings. Cookies also record certain information relating to the user’s surfing habits. Each user has the possibility to deactivate cookies himself by means of the software used on his personal computer for consulting the Internet web (the so-called “browser”). Many browsers are preset in such a way as to accept cookies in the absence of instructions to the contrary from the user. We invite you to check your browser settings with regard to cookies and to adjust them as you wish, bearing in mind, however, that in order to use some Services, it may be necessary to activate the reception of cookies (in such cases, you will be duly informed). The technological platform used to make Sites accessible to users, also by means of cookies, automatically records some information about the user’s computer and surfing habits, for instance: the name of his Internet provider, site of origin, pages visited, the date and duration of each visit etc… Such information is only used to allow access to the Sites and/or to make use of some Services and/or may be used, exclusively in aggregate form, for statistical purposes. The Sites also have the possibility to analyze, exclusively in aggregate form, the opinions and preferences expressed by users in the ambit of the Services provided.



Pursuant to art. 7 of the Privacy Code, the Controller grants you the possibility at any time to modify your preferences regarding the processing of your personal Data, to know whether any such Data exists or not and to be informed of its source, contents, the purposes to which it is being put and data processing methods, the right to request its updating, rectification and integration or to have it deleted or blocked should it be processed in breach of the law.  The User is also entitled to prevent or block the processing of his Data for the purposes of market research, the mailing of advertising material, direct sales and commercial communications. The aforementioned rights may be exerted by writing to the address info@ifdm.it.


Modifications to this Privacy policy

On the understanding that the Controller will in no case proceed to effect processing operations that differ from those expressly authorized and/or requested by each user, this information may be altered to conform to new legal provisions, to changes in the Controller’s data treatment practices and/or following changes made to the Site and/or Services. Each updated version of this information will be published on the Sites in the dedicated section: the Controller therefore invites users to consult the Sites on a regular basis in order to be constantly updated on the latest version published.
