If you join any of the social networking groups created by APG23, please be aware that social networks are online social networking services aimed at communities of individuals who share interests and activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. Most of these services are managed through the Web and offer different ways of interaction between users. If you wish to participate in them, please follow these guidelines:

  1. When you enter your personal data, you lose control over it. The data can be recorded by all contacts and members of the groups you have joined, processed, disseminated, even after years.
  2. Sometimes, by agreeing to join a social network, you grant the company that manages the service a licence to use the material you have entered online (photos, chats, writings, thoughts) without time limits.
  3. Most social networking sites are based abroad, and so are their servers. In the event of a legal dispute or problems arising from violation of privacy, you are not always protected by Italian and European laws.
  4. If you decide to leave a social networking site you are often only allowed to “deactivate” your profile, not “delete” it. The data, the materials that have been entered online could still be stored in the servers, in the computer archives of the company that offers the service. Read well what the conditions of use and the privacy guarantees offered in the contract that you accept at the moment of the registration foresee.
  5. It is necessary to think before inserting one’s own data on-line if one does not want them to be spread or used to one’s own detriment. It is good to report any violations to the Guarantor so that he can intervene to protect the user.
  6. When you insert photos of third parties or you “tag” them, first ask yourself if you are violating the privacy of others. If in doubt, ask for the third party’s consent first.
  7. Beware of fake profiles. All you need is a photo, a name and some information about a person’s life to get hold of their online identity.
  8. Beware of information made available online. The date and place of birth are sufficient to obtain the tax code. Other information may help to trace a person’s bank or postal account or username and password.
  9. Use different log-ins and passwords than the credentials you set up to access other sites, manage email, home banking and the like. Change your password often.

It should be noted that APG23 is committed to ensuring the correct use of the interactive services made available to the user in order to prevent illegal content from being put on the network: Therefore, APG23 reserves the right, at its sole discretion, in the event of incorrect or suspicious actions, to delete the contents entered or modify them after they have been entered by the user and also to inhibit access to users at any time and for any legitimate reason, without prior notice, as well as to inform, where appropriate, the competent authorities if it verifies the illegality of the contents sent or the illegality of the users’ behaviour.

You agree to assume all risksinherent in the use of any content.

Any violation, even if only presumed, of these conditions of use, or any violation, even if only presumed, of the rights of third parties and/or of the legal regulations in force in our system shall lead to the suspension or interruption of the services and, where necessary or appropriate, to notification of the competent authorities.

In particular, APG23 will inform the competent authorities if behaviour which may constitute an offence is found.

APG23 reserves the right, at its own discretion, to:

  1. modify these conditions of use: users will be notified by means of an announcement published on this site.
