The IP address is a code that identifies the User’s Internet connection at a specific time. Only the User’s Internet access provider can identify which subscriber was assigned an IP address at a specific time and date. By the very nature of the server that supports the website, the User’s IP address is automatically recorded along with the date and time of access. This data is used only to manage the website’s normal use and perform statistical analysis on the use of the website.  On the other hand, data may be processed of users who register in the form “Request information” and the data related to cookies and as indicated in point 5 of this Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy.   

3.2. Data recipients  U-TAD does not provide this information to any third party unless it is obliged to do so by law (e.g., an official request in the context of a police investigation).   

3.3. Lawful processing  The legal basis that legitimizes the processing of the IP address is the technological need to enable the provision of the website and the legitimate interest to carry out the proper control and analysis of the access to this website, to manage information about the products and services offered through it, and to respond to queries, questions, requests, or any other type of request made by the user through any of the communication channels available to them.
