This page provides an overview of the management methods used for the site as regards processing of the personal information of its users, in line with the applicable legislation (Italian legislative decree 196/2003, “The Code”).
The Data Controller is Global Thinking Foundation, headquartered in via Durini 27 Milano.
Global Thinking Foundation adopts specific security measures, in conformity with the requirements of the Code, in order to prevent any loss or deletion of, or unauthorized, illicit or incorrect use of personal data.
Please note that no data deriving from accessing our site shall be distributed, unless expressly indicated.
ACTIVE GATHERING OF PERSONAL DATA
Where expressly indicated, it is possible to transmit personal data via this site (for example, via the contact form) in order to obtain certain specific services. Please read the dedicated information notices published on the corresponding pages so as to be aware of the purposes of such data gathering, whether providing the information is obligatory, and to which parties it may be transmitted or communicated.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies, as described by the relevant legislation, are small text files which sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored to then be sent back to the same sites when they are subsequently visited again by the same user. When browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on their terminal sent by other web servers or sites (“third-party cookies”) which contain some of the elements (e.g. images, maps, audio, specific links to pages of other domains) displayed on the site they are currently visiting. Cookies are used for different purposes: authentication, monitoring of sessions, storing information on specific configurations concerning the users accessing the server etc. Please note that, in implementation of the requirements of 2009/136/EC Directive, there is a requirement to acquire prior informed consent from users before cookies used for purposes other than purely technical ones are stored on their terminal (see art. 1, para. 5 a) of Italian legislative decree of 28 May 2012, no. 69, which modified art. 122 of Italian legislative decree 196/2003 – the “Code”). There are therefore two broad categories of cookies: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies:
a. Technical cookies.
Technical cookies are those used only to “perform transmission of communications over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the supplier of an information service explicitly requested by the subscriber or by the user to supply that service” (art. 122, para. 1 of the Code). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which permit normal navigation or use of the web site (allowing, for example, a purchase to be made or authentication for access to private areas to be performed); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to gather aggregate data on the number of users and how they use the site; functionality cookies, which allow users to navigate the site on the basis of a series of selected criteria (for example language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the same. Storage of these cookies does not require prior consent from users, while the obligation to inform them pursuant to article 13 of the Code remains unchanged.
GATHERING OF PERSONAL DATA AND TRANSPARENCY

– Purposes of the specific data handling operation
– Corresponding methods of use
– Whether providing the information is obligatory or optional
– Steps and methods to help the owners of the data exercise their rights to access and object to the processing of the data provided for by law

Unless otherwise indicated by the interested party or where legal obligations apply, the data processing shall last no longer than the time necessary for the purposes for which the same information was collected.
