  • Where does the data come from?

The Register of Companies, envisaged by the Civil Code, was fully implemented by the Law 580/1993 concerning the reorganisation of the Chambers of Commerce and by the subsequent implementing Regulations, and its operation is entrusted to the Chambers of Commerce. The data indicated in Atoka as “Cerved source” originates from Cerved Group S.p.A., one of the official authorized distributors for the Register of Companies of the Chambers of Commerce. These data are corrected, supplemented and enhanced by the daily work of Cerved analysts.

The data that we indicate with the tag “Web source”, such as website and social media addresses as well as keywords, originate from public sources (websites, social media channels, etc) scanned by automated programs that use algorithms very similar to those of common search engines (e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc). This data is then corrected, supplemented and enhanced by Atoka’s editorial team and by its users.
