The computer systems and programs used for the website’s operation collect some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols (e.g. IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the site, URI [Uniform Resource Identifiers] of resources requested, the time of request, method used to submit the request to the server, file size obtained in response, numerical code for the status of the response submitted by the server - successful, error, etc., and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and computer environment). Although this sort of information is not collected to be associated with identified users, through processing and in association with data held by third parties, it could by its very nature allow for users to be identified.
These data types are used solely to obtain statistical information pertaining to the website’s usage and serve to check the site’s correct operation; they are thus not associated with any given user ID and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the case of computer crimes against the site: with the exception of this eventuality, data on web contacts are currently not held for more than seven days.
