Navigation data

During their normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire some personal data which is transmitted when using Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its very nature could, as a result of processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit 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 user’s operating system and computing environment. This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on how the site is used and to check it is working properly. It is deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to determine liability in the event of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site: except for this possibility, at present the data on web contacts is not stored for more than seven days.

Data voluntarily provided by users

The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic post and other data to the addresses indicated on this site leads to the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, which is necessary to reply to service and/or information requests, in addition to any other personal data inserted by the sender. Specific summary information is provided or displayed on the pages of the site set up for particular services on request. Personal data provided by users will be communicated to third parties if the communication is necessary for the purposes for which it is provided (e.g. participation in the Event). The data will be processed using analogue, computing and remote tools. Within the scope of the aforementioned purposes, Innova Camera may forward the personal data it holds to employees and third parties whose services are used for the above purposes. To register for the Event, the Data Controller must use our Partner Codemotion’s platform. Please see its privacy policy at For more information about the ways to participate in the Event, please see the participation regulations. Data collected for registration may be used in future by the Data Controller to inform data subjects regarding similar initiatives that fall within the scope of the institutional purposes of Innova Camera.
