The data will be processed, also through electronic means, by specifically appointed subjects, for dissemination and communication activities of Department of Physics and/or Politecnico di Milano. The collected Images will be kept, also in electronic form and on any technological support for the purposes and within the limits defined above and may be disseminated in accordance with Law n. 150/2000 on institutional sites as well as through social network channels (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, by way of example and not limited to).
You cannot be entitled to any compensation for the use of images.
Department of Physics has the right to access or disclose the User’s images without any consent, according to Article 97 of the law n. 633/1941. This authorization implies the granting of a non-exclusive license, without limits of duration and for the whole world, that can be transferred to third parties, for the use of the Materials and includes the rights mentioned in the following Articles, from 12 to 19 of the law n. 633 of 22 April 1941, including but not limited to: publication right; reproduction right through any mean or in any form; right of transcription, editing, adaptation, processing and reduction; right of communication to the public and dissemination, including screening, broadcasting and dissemination rights, also in a summarized and/or reduced version, by any technical means, the right to keep a copy of the Materials, also on electronic means and on any known technological support or available in the future for the purposes and within the limits defined above.
