The monitoring of websites that can be accessed through links present on this website is not an obligation under this contract: the publisher, CIC Edizioni Internazionali, has no power of any kind to control the said websites and therefore assumes no responsibility for the information they contain which, for example, may not be in line with the provisions of the Italian law decree n. 541/92 and subsequent modifications. By activating the links to these websites, the user leaves the website of his/her own free will and in without any compulsion. We will make every effort to reduce to a minimum any possible dysfunctions caused by technical problems. However, some of the data and information present in the website is embedded or structured in files or formats that may not be error-free.

9. Responsibility of the contracting party regarding the use of passwords and access codes
Some of this website’s sections or services require, or may require, the use of passwords or access codes in order to be accessed or used. The user has an obligation to the supplier to act with the utmost diligence with regard to the use and safekeeping of passwords and access codes (in particular by not keeping them openly in unsupervised places, on the computer screen or in the memory of the computer) and is thus responsible for the consequences of any abusive use of the password or access code. The password and code assigned to the user are strictly personal and non transferable. In the event of loss or theft of the password or access code, or if there are real grounds for suspecting that the password or access code may have become known to a third party, the user is obliged to communicate this fact, by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org so that the supplier can, in the shortest time technically possible, assign new ones. The supplier reserves the faculty to withdraw the authorizations connected with the password or access code until the user is assigned new ones.
The user may, at any time, send written complaints to : CIC Edizioni Internazionali Corso Trieste 42 00198 Rome, Italy or to the following e-mail address: email@example.com
