- In order to offer you the personalized services provided by our company websites, RCS Sport SpA and RCS MediaGroup SpA, as Co-Data Processors, must process some identification data necessary for the delivery of these services.
a) Navigation data
The computer systems and technical procedures and software supporting the proper functioning of this website acquire some personal data during their normal operation, whose transmission is implicit in the operational mechanisms and the protocols in use on the Internet.
Each time a user logs on to this site and whenever he/she calls or requests content, the related access data is stored in our systems and, potentially, also by the Data Processor and by the persons in charge of processing, in the form of tabular or linear structured and/or unstructured data files (within specific log files).
Each line of data storage is composed of information such as:
- The website from which our webpage has been called (so-called “referral”);
- Your IP address;
- The date and time of the request or access;
- The same request made by your browser or other client in the form of a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier);
- The technical code of the http response obtained from the server (error, success, etc.);
- The amount of data transmitted;
- The browser, its technical and functional characteristics and the operating system used.
This data will be used by the Co-Data Processors for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information about use of the site in order to identify the pages most visited by users and to provide improved content, as well as check that the site is functioning properly. At the request of the Authorities, the data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the case of computer crimes against the site or its users.
b) Data supplied voluntarily by the user
In several areas of this site you have the opportunity to send us personal data (e.g. your e-mail address, name, zip code and other data that may relate to your identity). The sending of these data takes place on an explicitly voluntary basis and entails the subsequent acquisition of the email address of the sender (necessary to respond to requests) and any other personal data sent for the purposes of service and any other purposes you agree to.
The personal information that you provide will be recorded and stored on electronic media that are protected and treated with appropriate security measures, which may associate and integrate the data with other databases.
The information you provide will be processed by the Co-Data Processors exclusively with methods and procedures necessary to provide the services you have requested.
The data will not be disclosed but may be transmitted, as necessary for the provision of the service, to companies that on behalf of the Co-Data Processors perform technical or organizational tasks necessary to the provision of the services requested.
Only with your express consent may the data be used to perform statistical analysis, market research and the sending of commercial information on products and promotional initiatives of the Co-Data Processors and/or third party companies.
Only with your consent may the data be used for profiling, which can be carried out by a) the automated processing of the personal data of authenticated users to send and receive email messages related to the use of the service; b) cross-comparing personal data collected in connection with the provision and the related use of multiple services made available to the user; c) the use of other identifiers necessary to link specific actions or recurring behaviour patterns, in the use of the features offered, to individual identified or identifiable subjects .
Finally, with your express consent, your data may be provided to other companies operating in the fields of publishing, finance, automotive insurance, consumer goods, humanitarian organizations and charities, which may contact you as Managers of autonomous initiatives – the updated list is at your disposal and can be obtained from the Data Processor by using the address below – for statistical analysis, market research and delivery of commercial information on products and promotions.
In compliance with current regulations, we will ask you to consent to the processing of your data by ticking the “I agree” box in the registration form. It is understood that your consent refers to the processing of data other than those strictly necessary for the operations and services requested by you, at the time of your acceptance, given that for these activities your consent is not required.
After completing the necessary registration for the service requested, if you intend to request/utilize other services provided by the same company or different companies as indicated above (the Co-Data Processors or their subsidiaries or affiliates) you may use the credentials (user name/email/password) already used for the initial registration.
If necessary, you may be requested to provide additional data required for the provision of the additional services requested.
You may, at any time, re-read the policy statement and edit the consent you previously provided, verify and/or change the status of active services, and, if you wish, request additional services.
The provision of data is optional, except for data indicated as mandatory in order to enable you to access the services offered. You have the right, at any time, to know what your data are and how they are used. You also have the right to update, supplement, correct or delete this data, request their blocking and oppose their processing. We remind you that these rights are provided by Article 7 of Legislative Decree 196/2003.

By means of cookies, information about your preferences and other technical data can be recorded in a semi-permanent way to allow quicker navigation and greater ease of use and effectiveness of the site. For example, cookies may be used to determine whether your computer has already connected to our website, in order to highlight news or maintain the login information. For your protection, only the cookie stored on your computer is identified.
Types of Cookies
This site makes use of four different types of cookies:
Essential technical cookies
These cookies are necessary for the site to work properly. They make possible the navigation of the various pages, the sharing our content and the storage of your credentials in order to speed up entry to the site and to maintain your preferences and credentials active while browsing. Without these cookies we cannot provide the services for which users access the site.
Statistical and performance cookies
These cookies let us know how visitors use the site, so we can then evaluate and improve its performance and focus on providing content that best meets the information needs of our users. For example, they let us know what pages are most and least popular. They take into account, among other things, the number of visitors, the average time users spend on the site and how they arrived at the site. In this way, we can discover what works well and what improvements are necessary, as well as ensure that the pages load quickly and are displayed correctly. All the information gathered by these cookies is anonymous and is not linked to any personal information. To perform these functions, our sites use third-party services that anonymize data, thereby making it impossible to trace them to individuals (so-called “single-in”). The services that are not completely anonymized are listed among the third-party cookies, which you can deny your consent to use in order to better guarantee your privacy.
User profiling and targeted advertising cookies
These cookies allow ads to be shown to the user on the basis of his/her interests. They are also used to limit the number of views of the same ad and for evaluating the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
They are inserted by the Co-Data Processors through the technical platforms of our advertising partners and are part of our investment in the websites, which allow us to adequately fund the maintenance of our services and their technological evolution. They can also be used to show you relevant ads on other websites you visit.
The cookies that are active in any given moment can change in function of the technical strategies of advertisers and their technical representatives, so rather than list them, we make known the companies that are authorized to provide advertising on our sites.
Operational and third party profiling cookies
This category includes both cookies provided by known partners of the Co-Data Processors and cookies provided by third parties that are not directly controlled or controllable by the Co-Data Processors.
Cookies from our partners allow us to offer advanced features, as well as a greater quantity of information and personal functions. These include the ability to share content through social networks, obtain access to services of video streaming and to the CDN networks on which we host our content. These services are mainly provided by third party companies hired by or working in aware partnerships with the Co-Data Processors. If you have an account with or if you use the services of such companies on other sites, these companies may be able to know that you have visited our website. The use of data collected from these external companies through cookies is subject to their privacy policies, and so these cookies are identified with the names of the respective companies and listed in the cookie management tools available in the appropriate section of this Policy Statement. These include registered cookies of the major social networks, which allow you to share the articles of our sites and publicly express your appreciation of our work.
Cookies that do not originate from partners of the Co-Data Processors are cookies sent by third parties without the control of the Co-Data Processors, and these parties thus have the opportunity to intercept the user even during navigation outside of our sites. These cookies, typically profiling cookies, are not directly controlled by the Co-Data Processors, which therefore cannot be certain of the use that these third parties make of the information collected.
Since every browser – and even different versions of the same browser – is unique, the choice to manage cookies through your browser preferences may require detailed information about the steps required, which can be found in the guide for your browser. For an overview of the steps to take for the most common browsers, you can visit:
Advertising companies also allow you to opt out of receiving targeted ads, if so desired. This does not prevent the setting of cookies, but blocks these companies from using and collecting some data.

To simplify your choices and in compliance with current legislation, the Co-Data Processors provide you with a management tool for the selective activation and deactivation of undesired cookies, if they are controlled or controllable by RCS MediaGroup SpA.
Inside the tool you will find a list of all the cookies we consciously manage or host, divided by category.
