3io, in accordance with the privacy policy adopted in the national territory, intends to ensure the privacy and security of each person’s personal data, also in connection with Internet accesses made abroad. This page describes how to manage the site regarding the processing of personal information of the users who consult it.
Detailed treatment information, made according to the artice No.13 of the Legislative Decree No.
196/03 – Personal data protection code – are reported from time to time in the pages relating to the individual offered services. Such information is needed to define the limits and modalities of data processing for each service according to which the customer/visitor may freely express their consent and authorize the data collection and the subsequent use.

Processed data types

The Website offers interactive and informative content. While browsing the site, customer information may be acquired, or more generally on the visitor, in the following ways:

Navigation data
The computer system and software procedures responsible for the operation of this website, acquire during their normal operation, certain personal data whose transmission is implied in the use of internet communication protocols.
These are information that are not collected to be associated with identified individuals, which by their very nature could, through processing and associations with data held by third parties, allow users’ identification.
This category of data includes IP addresses, browser type, operating system, domain name, and websites addresses from which a login or log out (referring/exit pages) has occured, information about the pages visited by users within the site, login time, single page permanence, internal path analysis (clickstream), and other parameters related to the operating system and the user’s computer environment.
These technical/informational data are collected and used in an aggregate and anonymous manner solely for the purpose of improving the service quality and providing statistics concerning the use of the site.
These data are not associated with users who access this site or some areas by using a username and password-based authentication system.

Voluntary data provided by the customer/visitor
These are the cases in which the customer/visitor is the one who releases his/her personal data to access certain services chosen freely upon the site, after reading detailed information.
“Opt-In” and “Opt-Out” policies: in all cases, prior to activating a particular service, appropriate information will be provided and, where necessary, the relevant consent to the processing of personal data will be acquired. Such consent may subsequently be revoked at any time, by denying the possibility of using such service.
Specific information will be progressively reported or displayed on site pages predisposed for special on demand services.

Children Data
3io does not allow the transfer of personal data from children under 18 years of age.

Data Storage

The storage of collected data takes place for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purpose for which the treatment is performed.
Once the service is completed, all personal data necessary for the activation/management of the requested service will be destroyed in compliance with the data storage policies, unless otherwise requested by the authority and subject to the storage requirements established by law.

Cookies Technology

COOKIES are information portions stored on the computer while browsing the website, in order to process and identify data usage.
The cookie file is usually of very small size and does not contribute to excessive space on the hard disk. The cookie is transferred to the user’s disc for recording purposes to ‘‘store’’ which areas of a website have been visited.
This option saves time, allowing the user to reach faster the main parts of a previously visited website.

There are several types of cookies:

permanent, which remain on the hard disc, even when the browser is closed; temporary or session cookies, which are stored only for the duration of the navigation and are deleted from the computer once the browser is closed; of third parties, generated by a website other than the one you are currently visiting.
The cookies used by the Study Foundation of Labour Consultants’ websites are a combination of these three types: some are used only for opening and maintaining a session under authentication (temporary cookies).
In that case, closing the authentication session or browser will make them useless both by us and by third parties, while physically staying on the used PC (permanent cookies).
In order to offer a site that better meets the expectations and interests of the customer/visitor, an analysis of the data collected on cookies is constantly made; these data only indicate anonymously how the site is used, that is, the areas and sections that have been considered of greater interest and utility for navigators.
To the customer/visitor is given the ability to set up his/her browser in order to accept all cookies, only some, or reject them. We acknowledge, however, that the failure to accept cookies could result in the impossibility of delivering the service when accessing areas under authentication.
It should also be remembered that at the end of each navigation session, the customer/visitor may in any case delete both the browsing cache-memory and collected cookies from his/her hard drive.
Cookies can be managed by the user through their browser from their browser settings. In fact, the user can manage their cookie preferences through features in common browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), that allow to delete/remove the cookies (all or some of them) or to change the settings of the browser itself to block cookies or to restrict them to specific sites (compared to others). You can learn how to configure browser settings (normally accessible from the ‘‘Tools’’ bar) by going to the ‘‘Support’’ pages of the browser providers (also identified through a common search engine).
Disabling cookies does not in itself preclude the use of the website services; however, if all cookies, including technical ones, are cleared/blocked, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as performing activities within the Secure Site Areas (in fact, cookies allow to make and maintain the user’s identification within the session).


A technique used as an alternative of direct analysis of Web Server log files.
It consists in collecting and processing navigation data by using dedicated JavaScript code located within the html pages of interest. This technique is used even in newsletters sent via e-mail.

Google Maps

The Functionally cookies are used to increase the usability of our site. We use Google Maps on our ‘‘How to contact us’’ page to provide detailed information on how to locate our office. Google Maps stores up to four cookies: khcookie, NID, SNID e PREF.
We use interactive Google Maps because we believe they provide a useful way for our visitors to reach us. We use Google Maps tools based on the fact that Google respects its privacy policy and its terms of service.

Links to other sites

From the website it is possible to link to other websites; this right is clearly reported in order to indicate to the customer/visitor the fact that he/she is leaving the 3io website.
The customer/visitor is therefore invited to pay particular attention to the fact that these sites are neither owned nor of responsibility of 3io as they are totally managed by other companies and/or organizations for which it is necessary to verify and eventually accept their policies on privacy protection.
3io therefore declines any responsibility regarding any request and/or release of personal data to third party websites.

Other forms of data usage

It is also announced that, only for reasons of public order, in compliance with statutory provisions on State security and defence, for the prevention, detection and/or repression of offenses, the data provided may be used for other purposes regarding the provision of the services and be communicated to public entities such as law reinforcement agencies, Public Authorities and Judical Authorities for the conduct of their activities.

Disparities behaviour regarding the present policy (Loyalty) 

The drafting of this document is carried out to better meet the requirements of our customers’ transparency and reliability, and to safeguard the 3io company values, with particular reference to the privacy protection of the collected information.

Policy Changes

This Privacy Policy adjusts the processing of personal data provided by customers/visitors while browsing the site. The possible entry into force of new industry regulations, as well as the constant review and updating of the user services, may require that these modalities be changed. It is therefore possible for our policy to change over time, so we invite the costumer/visitor to periodically consult this page.
