The owner and manager of the data processing of the site is Francesca Bortolaso, VAT number 03666530237 and tax code BRTFNC57P51L781S.


For all third party services over which I do not have direct control, instead, refer to their privacy and cookie management policies that you find linked in the various sections of this cookie policy.

This cookie policy does not stand without the privacy policy. If you have any doubts or want to get a complete picture of the situation read that too. If there is something you did not understand or you want to ask me to delete your data or in general for anything that crosses your mind, write an email to

This privacy policy is licensed Creative Commons Attribution - Share alike 4.0 International. It means you can use it in whole or in part - even on commercial sites like this one - if you allow it to be shared in the same way as well.

What are cookies

In general, cookies are small text files that some services use to save and store some navigation data. For example, cookies can be used to save the products you have in your cart while you shop online or to keep yourself logged in to a site even if you close it and then come back after a while. Cookies are saved on the browser you use to navigate and therefore refer to that particular browser, not necessarily to the person who is using it at that time. If you want to know more about cookies you can look this short video made by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data.

How does the blocking of cookies on the site work

Right now I block cookies using a WordPress plugin called GDPR Cookie Consent. You must explicitly accept cookies by clicking where it says "Ok". If you click outside the banner or scroll down the page, it doesn't happen that you accept them anyway: you just have to click on that button there.

This plugin allows me to make you accept or not accept all functional cookies and to choose whether to accept cookies for marketing as well.

  • A functional cookie is a cookie that is necessary for the technical functioning of the website. For example, the cookies used to track if something is placed in the shopping cart are functional cookies.
  • Analytical cookies: they are used to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of visitors and how they navigate this site. My site uses Google Analytics, here you can find its privacy and cookie policy.
  • Advertising or marketing cookies are cookies that are placed for advertising purposes. Advertising cookies can never be set without your consent. I only use cookies from the Facebook Pixel.
  • Third-party cookies: they are used to allow the sharing of the contents of this site on some social networks. If you decide to interact with the plugins, some personal information may be acquired by the managers of the social network platforms (for example, the visit to the site). I do not have access to the data that are independently collected and processed by the managers of the social network platforms.

You are free to decide which cookies to accept and which not to by clicking on "cookie settings" in the widget at the bottom right.

Processing methods

The collected data are processed with IT tools. Suitable security measures are observed to prevent data loss, illicit or incorrect use and unauthorized access.

Legal basis of the processing

I only process your personal data if:

  • you have given consent for one or more specific purposes (e.g. filling in the contact form)

You can, at any time, ask me on what legal basis I have processed your data.

Place of processing

The data is mainly processed at my headquarters, in Italy, or at the places where I will be when I access the site. Some data may be transferred abroad. Find more information in the details on the processing of personal data of each service.

Data retention period

I process and store personal data for the time required by the purposes for which I collected them. If I have obtained your consent to the processing of data, I can keep the data until you revoke the consent. I may also be obliged to keep personal data for a longer period in compliance with a legal obligation or by order of an authority.

At the end of the retention period I will delete the data collected and the right of access, cancellation, rectification and the right to portability can no longer be exercised.

System log and maintenance

For needs related to operation and maintenance, my site and any third party services I use may collect system logs, which are files that record interactions and which may also contain personal data such as the IP address of users.

Cookies that help me understand what you do when you are on the site

As I wrote in the privacy policy use Google Analytics - here are information on privacy and the protection of personal data - to find out who visits the site, what they look at and where they come from. If you want to know precisely which Google Analytics features I use and which I don't, what information I collect and which I don't read the privacy policy.

What happens if I don't accept cookies?

That your traffic data does not reach me. Patience, that's okay.
