What personal information is made available to UniTrento by SPID?

The kind of information that SPID collects and then sends to UniTrento is always the same, regardless of the service a user is accessing.
The information provided is:
- Name
- Surname
- Italian Fiscal Code (in order to activate all the services reserved to the members of the UniTrento community)
- date of birth (shown in the Fiscal Code)
- birthplace (shwon in the Fiscal Code)

- e-mail address associated with user's SPID identity
 

Why is the Italian Fiscal Code required?

IT services reserved to members of the University community use the Italian fiscal code to verify the identity of users and their role inside the UniTrento community.
By doing so, it is possible to grant users all necessary access permissions according to their role.
