Type of data processed

1) Navigation data

The IT systems and the software procedures for the operation of this website, while being normally used, collect some personal data whose transmission is implicit while using the Internet communication protocols. The above information is not collected to be associated to any identified persons; yet, its same nature could make it possible to identify users, by means of special processing and associations with other data. The IP addresses or the domain names through which the users connect to the website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of request, the procedures used to submit the request to server, the file size of the reply, the numeric code indicating the status of the server's reply (successfully delivered, error and so on) and other parameters relating to the user's operating system or IT environment, fall within this category of data.

2) Data voluntarily provided by the user

Discretionary, explicit and voluntary transmission of electronic mail to the addresses of this site entails the subsequent collection of the sender’s address, necessary in order to reply to requests, and also of any other personal data contained in the message. Specific summary information shall be progressively reported or visualized on the site’s web pages set up for particular on request services. It should be noted that resume’s submission involves the collection of the data included in the resume itself, in addition to the abovementioned data.


Purposes of data processing

Navigation data are merely used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of website and to verify its proper operation, thus, it will be deleted immediately after processing. The data may be used to ascertain any liability in case of possible IT-related offences to the prejudice of the website: except for this circumstance, the data about web contacts will not be held for more than seven days.

The Firm processes personal data voluntarily provided by the data subjects exclusively in connection to:

  1. newsletter subscription; invitations to events and conferences; subscriptions to mailing lists for dispatch on the Firm’s activities (events organized by the Firm, certifications and awards received, information on careers within the Firm);
  2. Request of information about the Firm or contact requests


Legal basis for processing

In relation to the cases described above under a):

- the data subject may sign up to our newsletter through the specific website’s section, in order to receive scientific articles on matters concerning jurisprudence, jurisprudence changes and other law issues related to the Firm’s areas of activity; or

- the data subject may receive information regarding events and conferences organised by the Firm on the basis of the Firm’s legitimate interest in maintaining contacts with the interested party, in cases the data subject had already participated to an event of ours or subscribed to our newsletter, without prejudice to the right to object (“opt-out”); or

- the data subject may be entered into a mailing list as a result of contacts with the Firm or with a professional or collaborator of the Firm (for example, exchange of business cards or other contact that may constitute an active behavior demonstrating interest towards the Firm); in such a case it constitutes a legitimate interest of the Firm to keep in contact with him/her by sending communications concerning the Firm as well as events organized by the Firm and that the Firm thinks could be of interest to the data subject (duly considering the expectations of the data subject), without prejudice to the right to object (“opt-out”).

In relation to the cases described above under b), the Firm shall process personal data insofar as they are necessary to fulfill pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the data subject and for the limited needs aimed at satisfying or answering his requests.

Lastly, the Firm may process users’ personal data in the pursuit of its own or third parties’ “legitimate interests”, for example for the management of any disputes, claims, complaints, and protection of their information systems, as well as to comply with the applicable laws and regulations.


Processing methods and criteria for data storage

Data processing shall be carried out in an automated and/or manual way, in accordance with art. 32 of the GDPR regarding security measures, by the Data controller and/or the Data processor and/or the people in charge of processing (if appointed), in compliance with art. 29 of the GDPR.

Personal data are automatically processed for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which they have been collected. Personal data processed for informative purposes will be kept until the user cancel his subscription to the service as well as for the periods of time provided for by specific provisions of law, if applicable. Specific security measures have been adopted to prevent any loss of data, any unlawful or incorrect use of the same and unauthorised access.


Location and transfer of data

Personal data shall be stored within the European Union. Personal data shall not be transferred to Countries or International Organisations not belonging to the European Union which do not ensure an adequate level of protection, recognized, pursuant to art. 45 of the GDPR, on the basis of an adequacy decision adopted by the European Commission. In the event it becomes necessary to transfer personal data to Countries or International Organisations outside the European Union, in relation to which the European Commission has not adopted any adequacy decision pursuant to art. 45 of the GDPR, such transfer shall take place only in the presence of adequate guarantees provided by the recipient Country or the Organization, in compliance with art. 46 of the GDPR and under the condition that the data subject have actionable rights and effective means of judicial redress. In the absence of an adequacy decision by the European Commission, pursuant to art. 45 of the GDPR, or adequate guarantees, pursuant to art. 46 of the GDPR, including the binding corporate rules, cross-border transfer will take place only if one of the conditions indicated in art. 49 of the GDPR.
