Navigation data

The information technology systems and software procedures for the proper functioning of this website acquire, during their normal practise, some personal data whose transmission is protected through encrypted Internet communication protocols.

These protocols, among which the SSL certificate available on the site www.covodeisaraceni.com, are released by a Certifying Authority (CA) after appropriate validity and reliability tests of the company, and make sure that the sensitive information given by users on the web (like password, personal data and credit card numbers) will be confidential and will for no reason be intercepted by third parties; this occurs thanks to an encrypted communication between client server and web server.

Specifically, when the first communication between client server and web server occurs, the latter sends its digital certificate to the browser that checks its validity and, if everything is all right, gives way to a safe connection between the client and the web server. It is possible to ascertain the presence of the SSL certificate through the address on the navigation bar, where it is possible to notice a lock (often green) and, instead of finding http:// you will find https:// in order to specify that you are carrying out a safe connection that uses SSL or TSL certificates. If you click on the lock, it is possible to notice the name of the owner of the internet domain www.covodeisaraceni.com.

Therefore, the guarantee supplied to the users by the SSL protocols referring to the certification of the internet domain to which the connection is carried out and to the real identity of the company connected with that domain, protects them from fraud and theft; this is fundamental, particularly when one deals with sites that supply online services that include exchange of sensitive and private information.

This category of data includes the IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the site, the URI addresses (Uniform Resource Identifier) of the required resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the dimension of the file obtained in response, the number code specifying the the state of the answer provided by the server (successful, error, etc.), the so-called cookies and other guidelines related to the operating system and the IT environment of the user.
These data are used by Hotel Ristorante Covo dei Saraceni s.r.l. only to acquire unidentified statistical information concerning the use of the site and to control its correct operation, and they are cancelled immediately after their processing. This data could be used in order to ascertain responsibility in case of supposed cybercrime to the detriment of the site.
