2. Specific information relating to particular contexts.

The Luigi Einaudi ONLUS Foundation implements, through its website, three particular treatments: the reservation of seats in the library and books, the collection of documentation relating to the calls for the disbursement of scholarships and the sending of information and communications.

For book bookings, however, the Foundation only processes the data necessary for booking the work that the user intends to consult during the session he has booked, namely his name and the title of the work of interest.

Periodically, the Foundation issues selection calls for the provision of scholarships.
