In each exchange with the user, a specific tab will specify the consent withdrawal procedure. The personal data collected by the Company is mainly processed via automatic electronic procedures pursuant to the processing objectives noted above, but also via non-electronic procedures for the duration strictly necessary to fulfill the processing objective in question and pursuant to applicable law.
