This page describes the management of personal data of this website’s users.

This informative is made available also to clarify compliance with EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU 679/16 – GDPR) to users who interact with Cortem’s website, accessible at the URL:

which leads to the website’s initial page.

This informative refers only to the above website, and does not hold for any other websites that might be reachable by clicking on links.

This informative is inspired by EU Recommendation n. 2/2001, that the EU authorities for the protection of personal data, during a meeting of the Group formed as per art. 29 of directive 95/46/CE, adopted the 17th of May 2001 to determine a set of minimum requirements for the collection of personal data on-line. In particular these requirements pertain the timing, nature and modalities of the information that the data owners must give the users when the users connect to a web page, regardless of the connection’s intention.



As a consequence of navigating this website personal data of identified or identifiable persons might be processed.

The data owner is Cortem S.p.A. – Via Aquileia 10 – VAT 00052120318 – reachable by email at the following address



Data processing related to services provided by this website happen at the previously mentioned location, and are performed by employees of the Department in charge of the treatment, or, on rare occasions, by other parties for the purpose of maintenance. No data deriving from this web service is communicated or published externally.

The personal data of users that request to receive informative material (sales communications, technical communications, newsletter etc.) are used only within the scope of the informative notices presented to the user in each applicable page or form of this website. In any case this data is communicated to third parties exclusively when necessary to perform the requested actions.



- Navigation data

The software and networking systems that are necessary to provide the website’s functionality acquire, during their normal operation, some form of personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of the communication protocols of the Internet.

This type of data is not collected to be associated to identified users. However, for its intrinsic nature, this type of data might conceivably, through external elaborations and associations with data owned by third parties, allow to identify users.

This type of data include IP addresses or the domain names of the devices used by the users to connect to the website, the URI addresses of the requested resources, the times of the requests, the protocol and method used to submit the request, the size of the requested file, the numeric return code of the server and other parameters such ash the operating system and browser of the user’s current device.

This type of data is processed only to collect information and anonymous statistics on the usage of the website, and to verify it’s functioning properly and are deleted immediately after elaboration. This type of data might also be used to assist in cases of breaches or damages to the servers and website: except for this possibility the data on the web accesses do not persist for more than seven days.

- Data submitted voluntarily by the user

Optional and voluntary submission of email messages to the addresses provided on this website will imply the acquisition of personal data, such as the sender’s email address (necessary to reply to requests) and any data contained in the message itself. Specific privacy informatives will be displayed on the relevant pages of this website, when additional services and data processing could be requested by the user.



No personal data from the users is purposefully acquired by this website.

No cookies are used by this website to transmit personal data, nor does this website use so called “profiling” cookies and/or cookies to track users’ personal data.

Use of session cookies (that are not stored in a persistent way on the users’ devices) is strictly limited to the trasmission of session ids (which are random numbers generated by the server) which are necessary to allow the efficient and safe navigation of the website.

The session cookies used by this website prevent the use of other techniques that might in fact make the users’ navigation less secure. The session cookies used by this website do not allow acquisition of personal data that might identify the user.



Besides what already outlined regarding navigational data, the user is free to submit personal data as reported in this website’s forms or in any case to request to receive informative material or other communications. Some forms clearly indicate what data is necessary to perform the requested service, and which information is optional.

When the information marked as necessary is not submitted, it is understood that the requested service cannot and will not be performed.

For completeness we note that in certain cases (that fall outside the scope of the ordinary management of this website) the Authorities can request data and information, according to art. 56 of the GDPR 679/16, to verify the processing of personal data. In these cases the answer is compulsory and refusal to comply might result in administrative sanctions.



Personal data is processed with automated instruments for the time strictly necessary to achieve the objectives for which they have been collected.

Specific safety measures are applied to prevent the loss of data, unauthorized access or illicit use of personal data.



Users to whom the collected personal data refers to can, at any time, request and receive confirmation on the existence/inexistence of such data, its content and its origin. Users can thus verify its correctness and/or ask for the collected data to be integrated, updated or rectified (ex art. 15-16 GDPR 679/16).

According to articles 17-18-19 of the GDPR the user has the right to request the deletion of his personal data, or to request the limitation of its processing of such data. Furthermore the user can object, for legitimate reasons, to the overall processing of his personal data.

The requests can be submitted to the data owner, at the address specified above, or by email at the following address:

Furthermore we remind users that they can always submit claims to the authorities that control the processing of personal data. In Italy this authority is the “Garante per la Protezione dei Dati Personali”.

Considering that the state of the art of the automated control mechanisms does not, at this time, make them free of errors or malfunctions, we clarify that this document, published at, is this websites’ Privacy Policy and will be subject to updates in case of any change to the elements that constitute it.
