The Personal Data processed through the Website and not yet explicitly indicated are the following:

a. Navigation data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate the website acquire, during their normal operation, some Personal Data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Site, the addresses in the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) notation of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and the user’s computer environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and to check its correct functioning, to identify anomalies and / or abuses, and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site or third parties: except for this possibility, the data on web contacts do not persist for more than seven days.

b. Cookie
Definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and record on his computer or mobile device, to be then re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be re-indicated when the user returns to visit said site or browse from one page to another. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing information regarding the activities of users accessing a site and may also contain a unique identification code that allows you to track the user’s navigation inside of the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. During navigation on a site, the user can also receive on his computer cookies from websites or web servers other than the one he / she is visiting (c.d. “third party” cookies).
Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the same functioning of the site.
There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s computer for different periods of time: c.d. session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; CD. persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a pre-established expiry date.
According to the applicable law, for the use of cookies it is not always required an express consent of the user. In particular, “technical cookies” do not usually require this consent, ie those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these are cookies that are essential for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.
For “profiling cookies”, vice versa, ie those aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net, usually a prior consent is required of the user, to the extent that it depends on the applicable legislation.

The Website uses the following cookies that can be de-selected, except for third-party cookies for which you will have to refer directly to the relative methods of selection and de-selection of the respective cookies, indicated by means of links:

Villa also uses third-party cookies, ie cookies of sites or web servers other than that of the owner, used for the purposes of these third parties, including profiling cookies. It should be noted that these third parties, listed below with the related links to privacy policies, are typically independent data controllers collected through the cookies they serve, or act as data controllers for the Data Controller.
