This Privacy Policy describes how Associazione NanoItaly (“NanoItaly” or “AssoNano” or “we”) collects, uses, and discloses information in a variety of contexts, including the following websites (the “Sites”) linked to this Privacy Policy:,,,,, and

The aforementioned websites refer to events/seminars/conferences organized or co-organized by Associazione NanoItaly, with a particular attention to the annual NanoInnovation Event, and other single events/seminars/conferences published and promoted in its own website (“Events”).

When we receive and process information for our own purposes, the processing of that information is governed by this Privacy Policy.

Please review this Privacy Policy carefully. When you submit information to or through the Sites, you consent to the collection and processing of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with any part of this Privacy Policy, then please do not use our Sites. Any specific privacy considerations in addition to this general policy will be noted where applicable.


The information that we collect and how we use it depends on how you interact with us. The following provides examples of the types of information that we collect from you and how we use that information.

We also collect additional information relevant to your account, such as your organization, affiliation, country, city and other similar information.

Inquiries: if you send an inquiry or contact our team for support, we will collect your name, surname, contact information and any other content that you send to us, in order to reply. We have a legitimate interest in receiving and acting upon your inquiries or issues.

We use your information to perform our contract to provide you with services that you request, including to process your payments.

  • At your direction: We will share your information with other parties only IF you instruct us to do so.
  • With third-party partners: We may share your information with third parties that we have partnered with to jointly create a conference/event.
