The use of session cookies (which are not stored permanently on the user's computer and disappear upon closing the browser) is exclusively limited to the transmission of session ID's – consisting of server-generated random numbers, as necessary to allow secure, effective surfing. The session cookies used by this website make it unnecessary to implement other computer techniques that are potentially detrimental to the confidentiality of user navigation, and do not allow for personal data to be gathered that would identify users.


In addition to the specifications made with regard to navigation data, users are free to provide the personal data either to be entered in the application forms submitted to the Office or referred to in contacting the Office to request delivery of information materials and other communications.

Specific security measures are implemented to prevent the data from being lost, used unlawfully and/or inappropriately, and accessed without authorisation.  The Chamber of Commerce of Bolzano/Bozen has adopted the minimum security measures provided for by the law. And basing itself on the most important international standards, has also adopted further security measures to reduce to a minimum risks pertinent to privacy, availability and integrity of the personal data collected and processed.


The data gather might be transferred or communicated for activities strictly related and instrumental to the efficiency of the service, such as management of the IT system, or processing carried out for other companies for the same purpose.

Personal data provided by users are used for the purpose of carrying out the services requested as well as for advertising and promotional publicity and are passed on to third parties only to the extent that it is necessary to provide the services requested.

Apart from these cases the data shall not be passed on or given to anyone unless expressed in the contract or authorised by the individuals concerned. In this sense, personal data could be passed on to third parties, but only and exclusively in the following cases:
1. There is explicit agreement to share the data with third parties;
