3.1 Access to the portal: browsing data
During normal operation, Skema’s information system and websites operating procedures acquire data which transmittal is implicitly required by  the internet communication protocols.
These data are used to obtain anonymous statistical information about the websites use and to check the correct websites operation, and they do not refer to identified users. However, due to their nature and by association with data owned by third parties, these data could allow to identify the data subjects. An example is the IP address of the system used to connect to the websites.
These data are removed from the systems after statistical processing, and they can be maintained offline only for ascertaining responsibilities for cybercrimes and they can be checked only upon judicial authority’s request.

3.2 Data provided voluntarily by using online services
To use the online services that require access credentials, registration or submittal of an e-mail, the personal data freely provided  by the data subjects will be used as follows:

The purposes of the data processing vary according to the required service, and they are described in detail in the specific policies available in the respective areas of the website.
