Typology of the processed data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties but, due to its very nature, it could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. In this data category you will find IP addresses or computer domain names used by users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses 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 numeric code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment. This data is used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to control its correct functioning and it is deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to verify the responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site: except for this eventuality, the data on web contacts do not persist for more than seven days.
Data provided accidentally by the user
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses stated on this site involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message. Specific summary information will be progressively reported or displayed on the site pages set up for specific services on request.

Services contained in this section allow the Data Controller to monitor and analyse traffic data and are used to keep track of User behaviour.
Google Analytics with anonymised IP (Google Inc.)
Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses Personal Data collected for the purpose of tracking and examining the use of this Website, compiling reports and sharing them with other services developed by Google.
Google may use Personal Data to contextualise and personalise ads for its own advertising network.
This integration of Google Analytics makes your IP address anonymous. Anonymisation works by shortening Users’ IP addresses within the borders of the member states of the European Union or in other countries adhering to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be sent to Google’s servers and shortened within the United States.
Personal Data collected: Cookies and Usage Data.
Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser) information to be reused during the same visit of the site (session cookies) or later, even at a distance of days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behaviour and use of services. In the continuation of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the word “cookie”.
According to the characteristics and use of the cookies, it is possible to distinguish different categories:
- Strictly necessary cookies: they are cookies necessary for the correct functioning of the site www.plax.it and are used to manage login and access to the site’s reserved functions. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (once the browser is closed, they are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of the services accessible by login. The public part of the site www.plax.it can be normally used.
- Analysis and performance cookies: they are cookies used to collect and analyse the traffic and the use of the site in an anonymous way. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
- Third-part cookies: by visiting a website you may receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”) and from websites managed by other bodies (“third parties”). An important example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. They are parts of the visited page, generated directly by the before-mentioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which you can refer to.
www.plax.it site also includes some components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). In this case too, they are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies). Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyse anonymous information on the behaviour of use of the site www.plax.it (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports for www.plax.it operators regarding the activities on the websites themselves. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google, nor it tries to link an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may also communicate this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
The user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing on its browser the opt-out component provided by Google
Some cookies (session cookies) are active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is accomplished. Other cookies “survive” at the closing of the browser and they are available in subsequent user visits. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases, a deadline is fixed, in other cases the duration is unlimited. www.plax.it does not use persistent cookies. However, by browsing the pages of the site www.plax.it, you can interact with sites operated by third parties that can create or modify permanent and targeting cookies.
The user can decide whether to accept cookies using the settings of his/her browser.
The total or partial disabling of technical cookies may compromise the use of the website functionality reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies. Disabling “third party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way. The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. Furthermore, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “owners” and “third-party” cookies.
Optional provision of data
Besides what specified for navigation data, the user is free to provide personal data contained in the application forms of the site www.plax.it or indicated in contacts with the Office to request the sending of informative material or other communications. Failure to provide such data can make it impossible to obtain what it is requested. For completeness, it should be remembered that in some cases (not subject to the ordinary management of this site) the Authority can request news and information for the purpose of controlling the processing of personal data. In these cases, the response is mandatory under penalty of administrative sanction.
Personal data is processed by automated tools for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which it has been collected. Specific security measures are observed to prevent the loss of data, illicit or incorrect use and unauthorized access. www.plax.it respects the EU Reg. 2016/679 and, periodically, adjusts the data control and processing procedures.
Rights of the interested parties
Subjects the personal data refer to have the right, at any time, to obtain confirmation of the existence of the same data and to know its content and origin, verify its accuracy or request its integration or updating, or rectification (Chapter III, section III EU regulation 2016/679).
Pursuant to the same chapter, one person has the right to request the deletion, transformation into anonymous form or blocking of data processed in violation of the law, and to oppose in any case, for legitimate reasons, to their treatment. Every effort will be made to make the functionalities of this site as interoperable as possible with the automatic privacy control mechanisms available in some products used by users.
