THE PURPOSES OF PROCESSING THE DATA
The Data concerning the User is collected to allow K23 to Platform services and hosting and Analytics.
Platform services and hosting
These services have the purpose of hosting and running key components of this website, therefore allowing the provision of this website from within a unified platform. Such platforms provide a wide range of tools to K23 – e.g. analytics, user registration, commenting, database management, e-commerce, payment processing – that imply the collection and handling of Personal Data. Some of these services work through geographically distributed servers, making it difficult to determine the actual location where the Personal Data are stored.
The services contained in this section enable K23 to monitor and analyze web traffic and can be used to keep track of User behavior.
Backend e hosting by Seeweb
For the functioning of the website, we use hosting services on external servers and management platforms allowing us to update content and save your personal details.
It is not always possible to identify the exact geographical location where the data is processed, as the servers may be geographically located in different places as a result of technical decisions that are completely independent of the data controller, although they are decided by the housing and hosting service providers.
Seeweb was created with the purpose of providing a complete range of cloud services as a response to the needs of companies with any kind of project. Their purpose is carried out through developing virtual infrastructure, archiving and sharing data, preparing disaster recovery operations, externalizing backups and even developing a SaaS server from their own software.
Google Analytics allows us to measure sales and conversions, but also offers updated data on how the user arrived at this website, how they use it and it advises the website on how to encourage the user to return to this website.
The service is offered by Google Inc. and comprises web analysis using personal data: usage data and cookies collected to personalize advertisements.
IP anonymization feature in Google Analytics
Google Analytics is an online analysis service provided by Google Inc. Google uses the personal data collected, usage data and cookies to track and analyze how this website is used.

The WordPress statistics service is provided by Automatic Inc. and collects usage data and cookies.
WordPress is a Content Management System platform provided by Automatic Inc. which hosts this website.

All information is saved to a data base including your personal data.
Google Font is a service managed by Google Inc. It comprises an interactive web directory allowing you to view the website content. The service collects traffic data about the pages in which it is installed, meaning that, if you, the user, have not installed the same service, it is still able to track your personal data if you browse the website.
