The electronic systems and software procedures to operate this Website acquire, during their regular operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects but, by its very nature, could allow users to be identified through processing and association with data held by third parties.
