Personal data may be processed with or without the aid of electronic and automated means and this includes all the operations necessary for the processing in question provided for by Article 4, paragraph 1, letter a) of Italian Legislative Decree 196 of 30 June 2003. In all cases the processing will be performed taking all the precautionary measures necessary to guarantee the data’s security and confidentiality. Personal data will be processed exclusively by persons appointed by the data holder, Morrison Watts, as data supervisor or person in charge of processing the data. The data holder has taken all the minimum IT security measures necessary to reduce to the minimum the risk of violation of the privacy of the user by third parties, these measures being constantly updated and whenever deemed necessary.
The IT systems and the software procedures put in place for the operation of this website will, as part of their normal function, acquire some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communications protocols. This information is not gathered in order to be associated with identified persons, but by its very nature it may enable the user to be identified by means of processing and association with data held by third parties. Data belonging to this category include IP addresses or the domain names of computers used by users connecting to the site, addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to make the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the code number indicating the response status provided 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 gathering anonymous statistical information about the use of the site and to check that it is functioning properly and the data are deleted immediately after processing. The data may be used to assign responsibility in the hypothetical event of computer crime resulting in damage to the site.
Power to submit data
E-mail messages sent optionally, explicitly and voluntarily, to the addresses indicated on this site must of necessity lead to the acquisition of the sender’s e-mail address and any other personal data included in the message, in order to respond to the request. These personal data will be processed for the time strictly necessary to fulfil the purposes for which they have been gathered or to comply with precise legal obligations. Specific security measures are taken to prevent the loss of the data, their illegal or improper use and unauthorised access to them.
Cookies are fragments of text sent by the software that manages the site to the user/visitor’s personal computer. A cookie may contain such information as the user ID, that the site uses to check on pages visited. The only information of a personal nature that a cookie can contain is that provided by users themselves and it must be emphasised that no personal user data is acquired by the site and cookies are never used to transmit information of a personal nature, nor are persistent cookies used nor any type of other systems for tracing users. Session cookies, whose information is not permanently stored in the user’s computer memory and which is deleted when the browser is closed, are only ever used to transmit session-relevant data, consisting of random numbers generated by the server, and the software usage data necessary for the site to be securely and efficiently navigated. Session cookies can avoid the need to use IT techniques that could potentially prejudice the security of users of the site and they do not allow users’ personal identification data to be acquired.
This site uses a session cookie for the purpose of memorising data for a temporary period that expires 30 minutes after navigation ceases. This site is also registered with Google Analytics for the sole purpose of gathering statistical navigation data. All the data collected are anonymous and are not used for any other purposes.
The data may only be disclosed to persons appointed by the writer, Morrison Watts, the data holder, as data supervisor or person in charge of processing the data.

- Persons needing to access the data for purposes associated with the relationship between the parties, strictly within the limits necessary for performing the associated tasks, for example bank and credit institutions, service providers, carriers and shipping companies.
- Our consultants, within the limits necessary for them to complete their work with our organisation, subject to our letter of appointment that imposes on them the duty of security and confidentiality.
The data will not be disseminated, by which we mean disclosed to unspecified persons in any way, including by making them available or open to consultation, without specific informed, freely-given consent for each type of processing.
Rights of the interested party
This without prejudice to the interested party’s right, with regard to their personal data, to exercise, at any time, the rights set out in Article 7 (Right of access to personal data and other rights) of the Code, in particular the right to obtain confirmation of the existence or otherwise of their own personal data or to access these and know their content and origin, to check their accuracy and request additions or updates to them, to have them deleted or blocked if they are incomplete, contain errors or have been gathered in violation of current regulations, and to object to their processing for legitimate reasons. With regard to the exercise of these rights and in order to be informed of the updated list of people in charge of processing their personal data, the interest party may apply, pursuant to Article 13, letter f) of Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 to the designated data supervisor, Morrison Watts contactable at the data holder’s office, also by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to resolve the matter promptly.
