Personal data are information that directly or indirectly identifies or makes identifiable a natural person and that can provide details about his or her characteristics, habits, lifestyle, personal relationships, state of health, economic situation, etc.

browsing data: computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
