Their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the website. Their use is aimed at avoiding the use of other technologies that could compromise the privacy of users' browsing.
Other types of cookies, or similar technologies, may be used from time to time in order to permit the use of the Website or certain functions. Specific persistent cookies, which can be deleted at any time, may be used to track the language of the user’s computer system.
In case of session data and those data strictly necessary in order for the Website to perform, they must be necessarily supplied and the users’ consent is not required. Failure to supply such data may imply the impossibility of connecting to the Website and to browse it.

The user can change these settings to block cookies or to alert that cookies are sent to the user's device. In case of different devices (for example computers, smartphones, tablets, etc.), the user must ensure that each browser on each device is adjusted to reflect their preferences regarding cookies. Please note that disabling cookies does not guarantee all the functionalities of the websites.

Voluntary provision of data

Notwithstanding the previous provisions regarding navigation data and cookies, users are free to supply their personal non-sensitive data in contacts and/or in communications with/to Laward. Failure to supply such data implies the impossibility to receive a reply.

Processing methods – Criteria and period of data conservation

Personal data shall be processed using automated tools, on the basis of logics strictly related to the purposes of processing, and for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which such data have been collected or, in any case, for the longer period of time envisaged or required by specific provisions of law and/or for the protection of the rights of the Firm.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the period of retention of personal data for the analysis of any spontaneous application and to respond to users’ requests will be 12 (twelve) months, starting respectively from the receipt of the application and from the last contact with the user.
