PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
The provision of personal data is not a requirement in order to access the contents of these websites. Only the personal data that the user voluntarily provides -if they wish- will be stored, either through forms or through any other means. The FCRI, as responsible for the data, undertakes to comply with current legislation on the protection and processing of personal data and, in particular, with the European Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, of 27 April 2016, and with its deployment regulations.
For this reason, we inform you that your personal data will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and in accordance with the purposes for which you have authorized.

The retention of data in our database is indefinite as long as you do not cancel it.
Consent is the legal basis that allows the processing of users’ personal data.
Occasionally, in order to make informational submissions about our activities, we may use email sending platforms (such as MailChimp or MailRelay).
