Personal data we collect and why we collect them
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, we only ask you to provide your name, surname and email address. The newsletter serves only to update you on new content on our website. Your data will never be transferred to third parties or used in any way for transmitting advertising content. These personal data are managed on an external professional platform (mailUp), in compliance with the GDPR regulation.
When visitors post comments on the website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser’s user agent string in order to facilitate spam detection.
The contact form is only needed for the purpose of contacting the client. Personal data entered in this form are not inserted in any mailing list or database; they are only used for contact purposes and for direct human communication with the user.
If you post a comment on our website, you can opt to have your name, email address and website stored in cookies. These are intended for your own convenience, to avoid you needing to insert your data again should you post a further comment. These cookies are valid for one year.
If you have an account and log into this website, a temporary cookie will be created to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and is eliminated when you close the browser.
When you log in, several cookies will be created in order save your login information and your screen display options. The login cookies are kept for two days, whereas the display option ones are valid for a year. If you select “Ricordami” (remember me), your login will remain valid for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you modify or post an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not contain personal data, but simply indicates the ID of the article just modified. It expires after 1 day.
The banners on the website do not use third party profiling cookies for the purpose of running campaigns tailored to users’ specific tastes.
Embedded content from other websites
The articles on this website may include embedded content (videos, images, articles, and so on). Any embedded content from another website will behave exactly as it would had the user visited that other website.
This website, diyandgarden.com, has embedded Google Analytics. This has been done for the purpose of analysing our website traffic. Among other things, Google uses the data and information collected for evaluating the use of our website and for generating online reports, which detail the activity on our website, and for providing other services related to the use of our website: data on the so-called referrer (i.e. the website from which the user was redirected), on which secondary pages were visited, and on how often and for how long a page was viewed. The web data analysis is mainly used for optimising the website and for performing cost-benefit analyses of Internet advertising.
Data used for analysing visitor behaviour are aggregated and anonymous. Indeed, to perform web analytics using Google Analytics, the controller uses the function “_gat. _anonymizeIp” through which the IP address of the data subject’s Internet connection is rendered anonymous.
How long we store your data
If you post a comment, your comment along with the relative metadata will be stored indefinitely. This allows us to recognise and automatically approve any of your subsequent comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.
We also store the personal information that is provided, in their profiles, by any users who are registered on our website. All such users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of their user name, which cannot be changed). The website administrators can also view and modify this information.
Newsletter subscription data are kept indefinitely; these data can be checked by the user in person on the subscription data page.

How we protect your data
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data from destruction, loss, modification and accidental or illicit damage. All personal data collected are stored on secure servers located in Italy.

The functional libraries of the server (Apache) and the script processing engine (PHP) are regularly updated to ensure maximum reliability and security, as are the website engine and extensions. In our editorial office and administration department, we use our client desktop PCs exclusively for professional purposes and these are equipped with antivirus and firewall protections.
We do not receive data from third parties. We use no automated decision-making or profiling processes that involve user data.
