If a data processor has been designated to provide responses to data subjects in case the rights as per Section 7 are exercised, such data processor shall be referred to.

2. The information as per paragraph 1 shall also contain the items referred to in specific provisions of this Code and may fail to include certain items if the latter are already known to the entity providing the data or their knowledge may concretely impair supervisory or control activities carried out by public bodies for purposes related to defense or State security, or else for the prevention, suppression or detection of offences.

3. The Garante may issue a provision to set out simplified information arrangements as regards, in particular, telephone services providing assistance and information to the public.

c) if the provision of information to the data subject involves an effort that is declared by the Garante to be manifestly disproportionate compared with the right to be protected, in which case the Garante shall lay down suitable measures, if any, or if it proves impossible in the opinion of the Garante.

5-bis. The information as per paragraph 1 shall not be necessary in case CVs are received that are sent voluntarily by the relevant data subjects with a view to recruitment for job positions.

Surfing data

The information concerned is not collected in order to be associated with identified interested parties, but due to its inherent nature such information could enable the users to be identified via processing and associations with data held by third parties.

This data category includes the IP addresses or the domain names of the computers utilized by the users that connect with the site, the URI (“Uniform Resource Identifier”) notation 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 with the reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (positive result, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and to the IT environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information concerning the site’s use and to monitor the website’s correct operation and are deleted immediately after processing.
