Type of data processed
Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in ICP use.

This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users connecting to the site, URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) of requested resources, time of request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the file size obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of response from the server (successful, error etc.). and other parameters regarding the operating system and computer environment.

This data is used exclusively to obtain anonymous statistics on site usage and to check correct functioning. It is cancelled immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of computer crimes against the site.

Except for this eventuality, currently data on web contacts exists for the time necessary to collect statistics.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

Optional, explicit and voluntary e-mails sent to addresses listed on this site involve the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, needed to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Like nearly all websites, ours also uses some cookies. Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user (but also other sites or servers) send and record on the user’s computer (or mobile device). They are then retransmitted to the same sites (or servers), the next time you visit them, thus sending information.

Cookies nowadays are essential tools because they allow to sites to run smoothly, allowing maximum customisation, interaction and smooth navigation. But they can also be used to monitor user navigation and then send advertising messages accordingly.

Cookies can be:

  • session cookies (which expire when browser is closed) or permanent cookies (remaining for a certain term – years, even);
  • first party or third party cookies (the latter are set from a website or from a server other than the one the user is visiting at that moment);
  • technical cookies (necessary, even indispensable, for a full – or better – use of the site) or profiling cookies (aimed at creating a user profile, to then send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during previous navigation) .

The Privacy Authority considers session, functional and – subject to certain conditions – analytics cookies to be technical ones. In particular, the Authority, in the provision of 8th May 2014, stated that the latter will be treated as technical cookies only if used for optimisation of the site directly by the owner of the site, who may collect aggregate information on the number of users and how they visit the site.

Taxes and duties

All countries within the European Union are shipped in DDP (Delivery Duty Paid), which means that taxes and duties are included in the final price.

Switzerland and Norway, all product prices are shown excluding all taxes and duties. Orders may be subject to local taxes and / or import duties. Taxes must be paid upon receipt of the parcel by the buyer, in accordance with the applicable laws in the country of destination.

Delivery service outside the EU

In the event that the User makes an order for outside the European Union, any customs or import tax is charged once the package arrives in the country of destination. The User may be charged taxes and transportation fees when passing your order through customs. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the package.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and we can not say what the cost will be, since customs policies and import taxes vary from country to country. We suggest that in case of doubt the User should contact his local customs office to know the current charges before placing his order, so he will not be surprised by unexpected charges.
