C. Data origin
The Data Controller shall ensure that the data covered by this agreement have been collected lawfully and in accordance with applicable regulations, and that the information transmitted to the data controller does not violate the rights of the data subjects in any way.
In this sense, the Owner indemnifies the Manager from any liability resulting from any unlawful processing by the Owner inherent in the use and data contained in Vantevo Analytics.
D. Privacy and security of your visitors data
The Vantevo Analytics service will collect information about visitors to the websites and/or software applications on which it is configured.
The purpose of Vantevo Analytics is to track the use of a website or software application in general without resorting to identifying and saving personal information, without using cookies, and respecting the privacy of visitors.
Using Vantevo Analytics, all site measurements and/or software applications are performed absolutely anonymously.
Every HTTP request sends data to our servers. To generate a unique identifier that changes daily we take into account the IP address, User-Agent and domain, of the user. A rotating "salt" is added to this data and the hash function is applied to anonymize it. The output is a code that is generated every 24 hours based on the time zone selected by the user.
Formula used for unique identifier calculation:
HASH (<SALT> + <DOMAIN> + <IP> + <USER-AGENT>);
The hash function generates a random string of numbers that is used to get the unique visitor count for the day. Once the key is generated with the function, which is the real output we have access to, the IP address and User-Agent are completely inaccessible to anyone, including ourselves at Vantevo Analytics. In addition, the IP address and User-Agent are NEVER stored in our databases or anywhere else on our servers..
This technique ensures complete anonymization of archived data.

Netforce Srl will not process personal data other than that necessary for the performance of the Main Agreement, unless the further processing is required by Data Protection laws and regulations to which the Data Processor is obligated.
