The Fondazione Piccolo America bears no responsibility for the content of external sites, which can be accessed through links on the site, provided as a simple service to network users.


Below are the methods of managing the site with regard to the processing of personal data of users who consult it. This is an information notice provided in accordance with art. 13 of D. Lgs. 196/03 (Code concerning the protection of personal data) for those who interact with web services, accessible electronically from the address: The information is also based on Recommendation n° 2/2001 that the European authorities for the protection of personal data, gathered in the Group established by art. 29 of Directive n° 95/46/EC, adopted on 17 May 2001 to identify certain minimum requirements for the online collection of personal data, and in particular – methods – times – nature of the information that data controllers must provide to users when they connect to web pages, regardless of the purposes of the connection.


Following consultation of this site, data relating to identified or identifiable persons may be processed. The Data Controller is the Fondazione Piccolo America, based in Circonvallazione Trionfale n.1 – 00195 Rome.


The processing connected to the web services of this site takes place at the aforementioned Data Controller’s office. It is handled only by the technical staff of the office responsible for processing, or by any persons in charge of maintenance operations. The personal data provided by users who submit requests for sending information material are used for the sole purpose of providing the service or performance requested and are disclosed to third parties only if this is necessary for that purpose, in any case, subject to your consent.


Navigation data: the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the communication protocols of the Internet. This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects, but 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:

  • IP addresses;
  • Domain names of computers used by users connecting to the site;
  • URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, 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 computer environment.

These data are used for the sole purpose of managing contacts with customers, consultants, suppliers and/or collaborators in general; therefore, they will be deleted immediately after processing/use. They could, however, be used to ascertain possible responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site or, in any case, related to the navigation on any links. Data provided voluntarily by the user: the optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses listed on this site involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message. Specific disclosures are prepared for particular on-demand services. Cookies are small text files that Internet sites visited by users send to their terminals (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then transmitted back to the same sites on each subsequent visit via the same terminal. In addition, each site may allow the transmission of so-called “third-party” cookies, i.e., those generated by websites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects on it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains). Depending on their duration, they are distinguished into session cookies (i.e., those that are temporary and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e., those that remain stored on the terminal until they expire or are deleted by the user). Cookies have several purposes. They are first and foremost used for the transmission of communication or to provide the service requested by the user; more specifically, they enable and optimize the operation of the website, perform computer authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, and improve the browsing experience of users, for example by keeping the connection to restricted areas active while browsing through the pages of the site without the need to re-enter User-Id and password, and by storing specific information regarding the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used). The aforementioned cookies are called “technical” (the user’s consent is not required for their use), as without them some of the aforementioned operations could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure. Differently, if the cookies are used for additional purposes, typically for behavior analysis and sending personalized promotional/advertising messages (so-called “profiling” cookies) or even only to obtain, through services rendered by third parties, information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site (so-called “analytics cookies”), the user’s consent is required. In fact, before these cookies are sent to the terminal, in accordance with current legislation (Privacy Code and general provision of the Guarantor of May 8, 2014), at the time of accessing the home page or other page of the site, a banner is immediately shown in the foreground with an initial summary information on the use of cookies and the collection of consent, which the user can give by continuing navigation by selecting an element below the banner or by closing the banner itself. In any case, cookies can only be read or modified by the website that generated them; they cannot be used to retrieve any data from the user’s terminal and cannot transmit computer viruses. Some of the functions of cookies can also be performed by other technologies; therefore, in the context of this web privacy policy, the term “cookies” is intended to refer to cookies and all similar technologies. This Site may use session cookies and persistent cookies. The types of cookies directly generated by this Site are:

  • “Technical” cookies, used for:
  1. authentication and management of a browsing session (for example, to identify and validate the user for access to the Reserved Area);
  2. security purposes (e.g. to keep track of the number of failed logins by identifying possible abuses in authentication and preventing fraud);
  3. customization of the user interface (e.g. to record user preferences such as language, currency, page display format, connection area);
  4. better usability of the site and its audio-visual content (e.g. through the execution of flash player programs);
  5. correct functioning of the connection (e.g. appropriately directing user requests among multiple servers).

“Third-party” cookies: This Site also allows the transmission of third-party cookies to the user’s terminal, with which the Fondazione Piccolo America collaborates. Fondazione Piccolo America, as a technical intermediary, only sends these cookies, but does not manage their operation (therefore, it does not have control and access to the information provided/acquired), as their operation is the responsibility of third parties. For these cookies, it is possible to access the information and consent acquisition modules of third parties by clicking on the links below. The third parties are: a) subjects whose services Fondazione Piccolo America uses to collect aggregated/statistical information about users visiting this Site. In fact, the service provided by Google Inc. is used. b) “Technical” cookies, used for authentication and management of a browsing session (for example, to identify and validate the user for access to the Reserved Area). In fact, the WordPress service provided by the WordPress Foundation is used.

The following table includes all cookies used by the site, along with the reason for their presence, their details, and type:

Source Title Details Type Expiration
Cloudflare __cf_bm Cookie used for Bot Management function. In particular, it analyzes traffic to search for patterns usually used by bots. Technical 30 minutes

Management of cookie choices

Cookies can be managed by the user through their browser and through the Manage Cookies link at the bottom of the site (you can also click here).

Browser settings:

Users can manage their cookie preferences through the features present in common browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), which allow the deletion/removal of cookies (all or some) or to change the browser settings in order to block the sending of cookies or limit it to specific sites (compared to others). You can find out how to configure browser settings (usually accessible from the “Tools” bar) by going to the “Support” web pages of the browser providers (also identifiable through a common search engine). Disabling cookies does not necessarily preclude the use of the services of the website; however, if all cookies, including technical ones, are deleted/blocked, some operations may not be possible or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as carrying out activities within Reserved Areas of the Site (cookies allow the user’s identification to be carried out and maintained within the session). If users/visitors connect to this site and send their personal data to access certain services or to make requests by e-mail, this involves the acquisition by Fondazione Piccolo America of the sender’s address and/or any other personal data that will be processed exclusively to respond to the request or to provide the service. Personal data provided by users/visitors will only be disclosed to third parties if the disclosure is necessary to comply with the requests of the same users/visitors.


Users are free to provide the personal data indicated in the request forms; failure to provide them may make it impossible to obtain the requested service.


Personal data is processed using automated tools for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected. Specific security measures are observed to prevent the loss of data, unlawful or incorrect use, and unauthorized access.


The subjects to whom the personal data refer have the right, at any time, to obtain:

  • Confirmation or not of the existence of the same data;
  • Knowledge of their content, as well as their origin;
  • Verification of their accuracy;
  • Request their integration or updating or rectification (Article 7 of Legislative Decree 196/03);
  • The deletion of the data or to render them anonymous;
  • Block data as well as object, for legitimate reasons, to their processing.

Requests should be addressed directly by registered mail to: Fondazione Piccolo America, with registered office at Circonvallazione Trionfale n.1 – 00195 Rome, or by e-mail to the address [email protected].
