Purpose and type of information processed

Browsing data collection

During normal operation computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire personal data, whose transmission is implicit when using Internet communication protocols.

Due to their nature, such data might allow identification of the users/visitors through matching and processing with data held by third parties (e.g. IP address, user/visitor’s computer domain name, URI address, etc.)

These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining statistical information (therefore they are anonymous) and to verify the correct functioning of Parmalat website. Data on web connections and user’s information are not retained and are normally cancelled after a certain period of time. No data from the web services will be communicated or disclosed.

Please be aware that such data could be used to verify responsibility in the event of computer crimes against Parmalat website or against other websites linked or connected to it: apart from this event, user’s data are not normally kept for more than a few days

Data provided spontaneously by users/visitors

Providing personal data is optional, explicit and spontaneous in order to access a service provided by Parmalat, or to forward e-mail requests. User’s address as well as any other personal data included in the message will be processed in order to reply to requests or to provide the requested service. Specific summary information will be progressively displayed in the website pages for special request services.


Cookies are small data files, which are stored on the RAM or on the hard drive of the computer every time you visit a website.

Parmalat website uses cookies in two ways:

  1. to recognize and keep track of the users browsing the site in order to provide faster access and to modify its contents according to users’ preferences. Cookies do not allow the website to access in any way to user’s information stored in user’s computer.
  2. Parmalat website does not use cookies to communicate personal data, nor any other permanent cookie such as user tracking systems.

The use of session cookies (which are not stored persistently in user’s computer and are automatically removed once the browser session is terminated) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identification data (made of numbers randomly generated by the server), which are necessary to allow secure and efficient exploration of the website. Session cookies used on this site avoid the use of other information technologies, which could potentially prejudice the user’s privacy when browsing. Moreover, such technologies do not allow the acquisition of data which could identify the user.

Optional communication

Apart from what specified about browsing data collection, the user is free to decide whether to provide personal information by filling out the proper on-line request forms on the website section dedicated to on-demand services.

Information secutiry and data processing

Personal information are processed using both security technologies and procedures and only for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected. Parmalat takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.

In particular, on the website section dedicated to specific on-line services where user’s personal data are requested, data are encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology encrypts all data before they are exchanged via web between user’s computer and Parmalat server, making them unintelligible to unauthorized people and guaranteeing the security of the transmitted data. The use of SSL requires an SSL-compatible browser able to perform a "key-exchange” using a at least a 128-bit security key. Such key is necessary to establish secure connections between the user and Parmalat server.
