In compliance with Regulation 2016/679/EU and Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 we collect your personal data and process it to the extent strictly necessary to the purposes connected with use of the website functions.


This website is our showcase and our communication tool with you. Through the website, we present our history, our philosophy, and products, commercial and promotional initiatives.

Data supplied involuntarily:

When you browse the website or search the activities and services offered, the software procedures and systems used to make it operate, collect certain items of information, the nature of which could, by means of association and processing with data held by third parties, make it possible to identify you. This data is used to obtain anonymous statistical information about use of the website, to check that it is functioning correctly and to facilitate browsing.

There are also links featured on our website to third party websites, which manage cookies autonomously. For more information, please read our Cookie Policy.

Data supplied voluntarily and purposes of processing:

In order to use our services, you are asked to fill in a registration form so that you can: register and have an account (which may be through a social network account), make bookings and purchase products and services, sign up for our courses or receive our newsletters about promotional initiatives and subjects.

Data we process

To this end, we collect common personal data such as, for example, your name, telephone number, residential address and e-mail address.
Additionally, during our courses, the professionals we authorise take photographs and video clips, which are then published on the portals Instagram, Facebook and Youtube after obtaining authorisation and consent.
Finally, with your consent, we keep a log of your purchases and use the data about the products you have purchased on previous occasions, to suggest other products we believe may of interest to you.
Lack of consent prevents us from using profiling cookies but does not affect your purchases.

Why the processing is lawful

We cannot avoid processing your personal data in supplying you with the service requested. Failure or partial conferral of the data marked as compulsory will prevent us from completing the registration procedure and satisfying your request.
In order to identify your preferences and purchasing habits, we need your consent and, in fact, when you started browsing, we requested this.
We also need your consent to send you our newsletters.
If you wish, you can check the relevant box on the form to consent to the use of your data for the e-mailing of news and promotional materials about our products and services. Consent is optional; if you refuse, this will not affect your use of the services requested, simply it prevents us from using your data for promotional purposes.
If you consent, your personal data will be entered into the application that manages the newsletter distribution lists.

Duration of processing

Data supplied involuntarily will only be collected for the duration of your browsing session. Data supplied voluntarily will be collected until consent is revoked. Data collected for profiling or the sending out of advertising materials (newsletters) will be stored for up to 12 and 24 months respectively.

Who may become aware of your data

Your personal data is accessible to employees and collaborators specifically instructed and authorised to this end. It may also be disclosed to third party companies acting as data supervisors on behalf of the controller, in Italy and abroad.  Data is processed using computer and telecommunications instruments for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected.

We do not disseminate and do not disclose your data unless obliged to by the law or forced for organisational purposes. We have stipulated contracts with our service providers (tax, legal and accounting consultants, couriers and/or carrier companies), obliging them to take suitable technical and organisational security measures. We should tell you that suppliers responsible for technical aspects of website management can also access your data.

In any case, you have the right to access your data to:
