In using this service, you agree to comply with the following terms and conditions and with any term, condition, measure or guideline that may appear on the service at any time in the future.  We reserve the right to make any changes to the rules and terms without prior warning and without the need for any form of individual personal notification but simply through general publication in the appropriate areas.  We urge you to regularly consult the rules in order to view any changes that may have been made.  Acceptance of the changes is implicit in ongoing use of the service after the changes have been made.  Ignorance of changes shall not be held to be an attenuating circumstance.
    If you do not wish to agree to any of the changes made, or if you wish to cancel your registration and cancel any personal data from our database (your e-mail address is the only compulsory piece of information that we ask you to provide), you may opt out of this agreement at any time by sending an e-mail to the appropriate postbox, making sure you write "cancellation of the account" in the subject line.
    After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail.  This will allow you to complete the procedure by activating your account, so you must take care to ensure that the e-mail address which you provide when registering is correct and valid.  We reserve the right to cancel your registration at any time at our sole discretion.
    When you publish any message or object, you implicitly agree to give up all rights to the message sent and to its contents, and you accept our free, unlimited, universal, eternal, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully transferable right to use, copy, modify and display the messages and/or to include them in any other kind of product, medium or technology either available today or which may become available in the future.
    This service is provided "as is".  At certain times the service may be unavailable due to errors, maintenance work or circumstances beyond our control.  We do not offer any guarantee in terms of the quality, functioning, availability or performance either of the service itself or of its content.  Insofar as is permitted under the law, no guarantees, conditions or terms allowed by law relating to the service's performance or other aspects of it will apply.  We also reserve the right to modify or to eliminate the content of the board at any time.

    In light of the automatic, dynamic and constantly changing nature of this service, it is impossible for us to check or to authorize every single message or to confirm the accuracy and truth of the information or statements contained in such messages.  The Management is not responsible for the content of the messages published on this service, be they public or private.  The messages reflect under all circumstances the sole viewpoint of the author, who holds sole responsibility for them.  Under no circumstances do they reflect the viewpoint of the Management of this service.  We reserve the right to forward any details in our possession to the appropriate judicial authority in the event of complaints or of the commencement of legal action connected with any events and/or damage caused by material published on this service.
    We urge you to use the service in a responsible manner and, in particular, to refrain from sending messages containing offensive, obscene, or slanderous statements, or statements concerning illegal activities or liable to offend the race, religion, opinions or gender of other people.
    In using this service, you agree to refrain from using it to post material that is deliberately false and/or slanderous, inaccurate, insulting, vulgar, threatening, offensive, pornographic, invasive of other people's privacy, illegal, or damaging in any other manner to the publisher or to third parties.
    If you consider that certain messages may contain one or more breaches of the above rules, we would ask you to inform us of your concern using the appropriate e-mail address, writing the word "Segnalazione" ["Report"] in the subject line and describing the details of the material you are reporting in the text field.
    Insofar as is permitted under the law, we cannot be held responsible for loss or damage, whether direct or indirect, accidental or consequential, caused either to users or to third parties and incurred during access to, or use of, the service.  Even if any of the present terms or conditions prove to be illegal, invalid or inapplicable, the remainder of the terms and conditions will nonetheless continue to hold good.

  3. Information and Consent to the Use and Processing of Personal Details

  4. Information regarding the use and processing of personal details in accordance with Article 13 in the Italian Civil Code concerning the protection of personal details (D. Lgs. 196/03)
    All personal details provided in connection with subscription to this Service will be used and processed for the sole purpose of managing that subscription and anything closely and uniquely related to it; they will not be used in any other way or supplied to third parties.  We undertake to perform all legal obligations in this connection.
    All personal details are processed using information technology and systems that guarantee the security and confidentiality of those details.  The use of these systems, and thus access to the details, is restricted to staff tasked with moderating and managing the service, in full compliance with the minimum security measures specified in Attachment B to Legislative Decree n. 196 dated 30 June 2003 - Code regarding the protection of personal details - technical discipline governing minimum security measures.
    The only personal detail which users are required to provide in order to register with the service is a valid e-mail address; we will never reveal that address to the public or to third parties.  If the user keys in any additional and non-compulsory details, that act will implicitly be considered to authorize us to publish those additional and non-complusory details on the user's public profile.
    While the service is in use, the IP address of the computer used for the connection will be obtained and recorded only for as long as is strictly necessary.  This is done solely in order to preempt misuse of the service, to monitor the board for statistical purposes, and for use as evidence in the event legal action needs to be undertaken in order to protect our rights or for any other legal purpose.   Under no circumstances is that IP address used to identify the user.
    Individuals whose personal details we hold may at any time demand confirmation of the existence of those details, demand to be apprised of their content and origin, demand to check their accuracy, and/or demand that they be added to, updated and/or rectified.  These individuals also have the right to demand that the details be cancelled or transformed into anonymous material, or that any details used or processed in breach of the law be frozen.  By the same token, these individuals may in any case oppose the use or processing of the details on legitimate grounds.  Following the cancellation of the details, the user will no longer be able to use the service unless a new registration procedure is embarked on.  The staff reserves the right to assess and to accept or to reject any application by a user to renew his or her registration.
    Any demands, clarification regarding the protection of privacy or further information on D.Lgs. 196/03 should be addressed to the Management of the service ( ), indicating the topic of the query in the subject line of the e-mail containing that query.
    Consent to the use and processing of personal details is compulsory; in the event such consent is denied, it will not be possible to continue with the registration procedure.

    I, the undersigned, having read the terms and conditions contained in Art. 23 regarding the protection of personal details (D.Lgs. 196/2003), agree that my personal details may be used for the purposes indicated.
