The owner of the processing carried out on personal data coming from the website is Geko s.r.l. with registered office in Via Nona Strada 23/G 35129 Padova - Italy (hereinafter "Geko") VAT number 03465270282, which constantly strives to protect the online privacy of its users.

2. The personal data being processed
Following navigation on the Website, personal information may be collected automatically or upon your voluntary communication which may directly or indirectly allow identification such as the name, an identification number, an online identifier, an address, a contact and other expressly communicated by you (hereinafter only “Personal Data”). Specifically, the types of personal data processed through the Site are the following:

2.1. Browsing data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate the Site acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Site, the addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical 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. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and to check its correct functioning, to identify anomalies and/or abuses, and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the site or third parties: except for this eventuality, data on web contacts currently do not persist for more than 30 days.<7p>

2.2. Data provided voluntarily by the user
When using the section of the Site dedicated to contacts ("Contact Us") there is a data entry form in which you can enter useful information to be contacted, any requests and communications, you are therefore offered the possibility of providing your personal data. Geko cannot be held responsible for the correctness and updating of any incorrect information voluntarily sent by you. We invite you not to publish and send in this section or through other channels - unless strictly necessary - any special categories of personal data. The data falling within the category of special personal data, referred to in art. 9 of the EU Regulation, are literally "[...] data suitable for revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, as well as processing genetic data, biometric data intended to identify unambiguously a natural person, data relating to the health or sexual life or sexual orientation of the person".. Indeed, we remind you that in the event of the transmission of special categories of Personal Data, but in the absence of specific manifestation of consent to process such data (an eventuality which obviously allows you to send a curriculum vitae), Geko cannot be held responsible in any way, nor will it be able to receive any complaints, since in this case the processing will be permitted as it concerns data made manifestly public by the interested party, in accordance with the art. 9(1)(e) of the Regulation. However, we specify the importance, as already indicated above, of expressing explicit consent to the processing of personal data which in this case also extends to special categories of personal data. We also inform you that, for the purposes of searching for resources, Geko may view the professional social profiles you have made freely available on the Internet (e.g. LinkedIn).

2.3. Cookies: definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and record on their computer or mobile device, to be then re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the user's actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again. when the user returns to visit said site or navigate from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, monitor sessions and store information regarding the activities of users who access a site and can also contain a unique identification code that allows tracking of the user's navigation within of the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on their computer from sites or web servers other than the one they are visiting (so-called "third party" cookies).
Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are therefore technically necessary for the functioning of the site.
There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user's computer for different periods of time: so-called. session cookie, which is automatically deleted when the browser is closed; CD. persistent cookies, which remain on the user's equipment until a pre-established expiry date.
Based on current legislation in Italy, express user consent is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, "technical cookies" do not require such consent, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these are cookies that are essential for the functioning of the site or necessary to carry out activities requested by the user. Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Guarantor for the protection of personal data (see Provision Identification of simplified methods for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies of the 8 May 2014 and subsequent clarifications, hereinafter only "Provision") also includes:

  • "analytics cookies" where used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself;
  • navigation or session cookies (to authenticate);
  • functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.

For "profiling cookies", on the other hand, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and used for the purpose of sending advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the internet, prior consent is required from the user.
Types of cookies used by the Site and possibility of (de-)selection
