For this purpose we communicate the following:


Data handling owner

The data handling owner of the site and person or persons responsible for the protection of personal data is Eredi Colombo s.r.l. (fiscal code and VAT number 04987470269) situated in Piazza Indipendenza, n. 9  post code 31050 Badoere di Morgano Treviso – Italy. The owner can be contacted by email at:

The purpose of the privacy document is to supply the maximum transparency relative to the information that the site collects and how it is used.

In compliance with the obligations deriving from the national norms (Decree 30 June 2003 n.196, concerning the protection of personal data and successive modifications) and European (European regulations for the protection of personal data n. 679/2016 , GDPR), this site respects and protects the privacy of its visitors and users, making every possible commensurate effort not to damage the rights of the users.

This site does not publish advertisements, does not use the data for the purpose of sending out publicity, however it does use the services of third parties in order to improve the use of the site, third parties who could collect the data of the users and then use them to send personalised advertisements to other sites. Nonetheless, this site makes every possible effort to protect the privacy of the users and minimize the collection of personal data. The site also uses social media plugins to simplify the sharing of articles on the social media network. Such plugins are configured in a way that they send out cookies (and therefore possibly collect data) only after the user has clicked on the plugin.

Juridical basis of the treatment

This site treats the data prevalently on the basis of consent by the user. The consent is given by means of the banner at the bottom of the page, or by the use of or consultation of the site, which behaviour is conclusive. By using or consulting the site, the visitors and users approve of the present privacy document and agree to the processing of their personal data according to the modality and purpose described below, including possible diffusion to third parties if necessary for providing a service. Further consent is collected through the communication modules or requests for services, relative to the specific purpose of the services. The supplying of the data and thus the consent to the collection and processing of them is facultative; the user can deny consent, and can revoke at any time consent already given (through the banner placed at the bottom of the page or the settings on the browser for cookies, or the Contacts link). However, denying consent may make the provision of services impossible and the experience of browsing the site would be compromised. The data for the security of the site and prevention of abuse and SPAM, as well as those for the analysis of the traffic on the site (statistics) in aggregate form are treated on the basis of the legitimate interests of the data handling owner in order to protect the site and the users themselves. In these cases, the user always has the right to oppose the processing of the data (see the paragraph, The Rights of the User).


Purpose of the processing

The processing of the data collected by the site, in addition to the purposes linked to and instrumental in the supplying of the service, has the following purposes:

Statistics: The collection of data and information exclusively in anonymous, aggregate form in order to verify the correct functioning of the site. None of this information is traceable to the physical person of the User of the site, and does not allow identification in any way. Consent is not needed.

 Security: The collection of data and information is made in order to protect the security of the site (antispam filters, firewall, revealing of viruses) and the users and to prevent or discover fraud or abuse to the detriment of the website. The data are automatically recorded and could possibly include personal data (IP address) which could be used, in compliance with the laws in force in this matter, to block attempts to damage the site itself or cause damage to other users or in any case carry out harmful or illegal activities. The data are never used to identify or profile the User and are periodically cancelled. Consent is not needed.

Consultancy and job applications: In the case of spontaneous sending of data for the purpose of asking for professional consultancy or an application for a professional position, the data will be used only to evaluate the task and the execution of that task.


Period of conservation of the data

The data gathered by the site during its functioning are conserved for the time strictly necessary to carry out the activities described. On the due date, the data will be cancelled or made anonymous, as long as no further reason exists for their conservation.

The data (IP address) used for the security of the site (blocking attempts to damage the site) are conserved for 30 days.

The data used for the purposes of analytics (statistics) are conserved in aggregate form for 24 months.

Transfer of data gathered by third parties

The data taken from the site in general are not supplied to third parties, except for specific cases: legitimate requests by judicial authorities and only in the cases foreseen by law; whenever it is necessary for the supply of a specific service requested by the User; for carrying out security checks or optimizing the site.

Third party cookies

This site has no control over the cookies entirely managed by third parties and does not have access to the information gathered through these cookies. The information about the use of these cookies and their purpose, as well as the way to disable them, are supplied directly by the third parties on the pages indicated below.

We would like to remind you that, generally, the tracing of users does not involve their identification, unless they are already enrolled to the service and logged, in which case it is presumed that the User has expressed consent directly to the third party at the time of enrolment to the relevant service (e.g. Facebook).

This site uses cookies from the following third parties:

Google Analytics: analyses the use made of the site by users, completing reports about the activities of the site and the behaviour of the users, verifying how often they visit the site, how the site was traced and the most frequently visited pages.

The data gathered: identification of the browser, date and time of the interaction with the site, pages visited previously, IP address.

(with responsibility for processing) is forbidden to cross-reference such data with that taken from other services.
