Privacy & GDPR Regulation
GDPR, officially regulation (UE) n.2016/679, is a regulation of the European Union with regard to personal information and privacy.
With this regulation, the European Commission intends to strengthen and standardise personal information protection for citizens of the European Union and residents of the European Union, both within and outside the borders of the European Union (EU).
The text, adopted on 27 April 2016, was published in the European Official Journal on 4 May 2016 and came into force on 25 May of the same year. It began to be definitively effective on 25 May 2018.
This document also addresses the issue of exporting personal data outside the EU and obliges all data controllers (also having their registered office outside the European Union) who process data of residents of the European Union to observe and fulfil the obligations envisaged. The main objectives of the European Commission are to give back to citizens the control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment concerning international affairs by unifying and making the privacy legislation within the EU homogeneous. Since its entry into force, GDPR has replaced the contents of the Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46 / EC) and, in Italy, repealed the provisions of the code for the protection of personal data (dlgs.n. 196 / 2003).

These cookies hold information about the computer – they don’t hold personal information about you (ie it’s not linked to you as an individual). But they might hold a record of what other websites you’ve looked at – so we could show you a car advert if you’ve previously visited a motoring website.
These are the services we use and how you can control those cookies. Please note that turning off advertising cookies won’t mean that you are not served any advertising merely that it will not be tailored to your interests.
4. Other ad management cookies

Our advertising partners will serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you, based on information about your visit to the Website and other websites. In order to do this, our advertising partner may need to place a cookie on your computer. These cookies hold information about the computer – they don’t hold personal information about you (ie it’s not linked to you as an individual).
