In accordance with art. 13 of European Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and Order 10 June 2021, no. 231 governing the use of cookies, we wish to inform visitors to the website about the use of the data entered and of the cookies used by the site itself. This information note is also provided in accordance with Recommendation no. 2/2001 as adopted by the working group established by art. 29 of Directive no. 95/46/EC. This note relates to the websites and portals of CDS S.r.l. and does not refer to other websites that may be accessed via links.



Because of accessing the website, data may be processed that is personal or that may be associated with the user by means of cookies. The data controller is CDS S.r.l., whose registered office is located at in Interporto Blocco 8.0 - 40010 Bentivoglio (BO).. The data controller can be contacted using the following contact details:





The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website will, during the course of normal operation, gather certain personal data that are automatically transmitted when using internet communication protocols. Such information is not collected so as to be associated with identified individuals but, by its very nature, it could result in the identification of users via processing and association with data held by third parties.

Such data will include the IP addresses or domain names of the computers of users who connect to the site, addresses of the requested resources in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) form, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the digital code indicating the status of the reply from the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user's operating system and computer environment.

These data will only be used to obtain anonymous statistical information about site usage and to check that it is functioning properly; they will be deleted immediately after processing. The data may be used to establish liability in the event of possible computer crime against the site.



Such information relates to data provided voluntarily by the user.

  • CONTACT US: please note that the data provided will be used solely to comply with your request. The data collected will be kept only for as long as is necessary to respond to you. Data will be processed according to the consent given. If permission for processing is refused, it will not be possible to handle your request. Any other purposes related to marketing activities (sending of advertising or promotional material) will be subject to your specific and separate consent.
  • NEWSLETTER: only for our members, the data collected will be used for sending information material; they will be stored and processed for the same purpose until such time as the data subject requests deletion/unregistering via the channels provided. Any other purposes related to marketing activities (sending of advertising or promotional material) will be subject to your specific and separate consent.
  • RESERVED AREA: we collect the necessary data from our members to provide access to the reserved area where it is possible to view information relating to purchases made on our e-commerce as well as all direct content for affiliates. The personal data collected will be kept for the entire duration of the affiliation, with the possibility of further storage according to the terms established by accounting and tax legislation.
  • PERSONNEL: Curriculum vitae sent spontaneously to us will be used for personnel recruitment and selection purposes: they will be processed by authorized persons responsible for managing the selection procedure. The data collected could also be communicated to third parties (operators in the field of personnel selection, labour and management consultancy) with whom we have signed a service contract compliant with the provisions of article 28 of (RGPD 2016/679). The information acquired will be kept for the time strictly necessary for the evaluation of the position, in any case for a period not exceeding two years.


The above-listed processing will be carried out solely in computerised form, but processing in paper form cannot be excluded. Your data may be communicated to persons regarded as recipients pursuant to art. 4 or to data supervisors pursuant to art. 28 of the Regulation (EU) with responsibility for responding to your requests to us.



Cookies are small text files (usually consisting of letters and numbers) that are stored in the memory of a browser or device when the user visits a website. They may only be stored for the duration of the visit or for a longer period: their purpose is to allow the server to recognise users even after their initial access.

For technical cookies and technical passive identifiers consent is not needed (Provision no. 231, issued by the Data Protection Authority on 10 June 2021).

With any other ‘passive’ identifier the user does not have tools that can be relied on independently, since he or she must necessarily have recourse to the controller’s support.

That is so because the controller uses a reading technique that does not require the storage of information within the user’s device, as it only envisages observing the configurations applying to that specific user and making him or her identifiable; the outcome is ultimately a ‘profile’ that remains in the controller’s sole possession, to which the data subject obviously has no free and direct access and of which the data subject might actually be totally unaware.



This website uses technical and analytical cookies (for the analytical type, the anonymity of the interested party is guaranteed by masking the user's IP address) for which consent is not required.

This website also implements social plugins, which allow you to share the content of the website with social media platforms. For these types of cookies, the user's consent is required upon first access.

The site does not implement profiling cookies.



You can express your choice when you first access the site: you can change your opinion at any time by clicking on the dedicated button visible at the bottom right of the screen.



We are committed to ensuring that data processing takes place within the territory of the European Union. When this is not possible due to technical-organizational needs, then we support a preliminary verification of the existence of the conditions of legitimacy prescribed by the legislation.



The data controller does not use any automated decision-making processes in respect of your personal data.



You have the right at any time to request the data controller to provide you with access to your data, as well as to the rectification or deletion of such data. You will receive a written reply within 30 days (unless you have specifically requested a verbal reply), which may also be in electronic form. You also have the right to request the limitation of processing or to object to it. Finally, you may request the portability of your data to another data controller. You may at any time also revoke any consent you have given via this website: to revoke such consent simply contact one of the addresses listed above.

You have the right to submit a complaint to the supervisory authority if you feel that your data have been processed unlawfully.
