Cookie Policy 

 

What cookies are.

Cookies are small-sized portions of code that the sites visited by the user send to the browser where they are memorized to be then retransmitted to the same sites during browsing or upon the subsequent visit of the same user.  During the browsing of a site, the user may also receive on their computer/device cookies that are sent by various sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which there could be certain elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site which the same user is visiting. In this way, for example, the cookies allow and/or facilitate access to certain Internet pages to improve the user’s browsing experience (or permit the memorization of pages visited and other specific information, such as, for example, pages referred to more frequently, errors in connection, etc.), or permit profiling activities. As a result, for smooth and complete use of a website, it would be advisable for the user to configure their browser to accept the receipt of these cookies.

 

Types of cookies used by the site.

 

Technical cookies.

Technical cookies permit the performance of activities strictly linked to the functioning of the site. The technical cookies used by the Data Controller can be broken down into the following sub-categories:

 

Navigation or session cookies, through which it is possible to save browsing preferences and optimize the user’s browsing experience. They are cookies essential for browsing in the site using all its functions, such as, for example, maintenance of the session and access to reserved areas. They are necessary, since without them it would not be possible to provide the services requested. These cookies do not collect information to be used for commercial purposes. The use of session cookies, which are not memorized persistently on the user’s computer and disappear with the closure of the browser, is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (composed of random numbers generated by the server) necessary for allowing safe and efficient exploration of the site. The session cookies used in this site avoid the use of other IT techniques which are potentially detrimental for the confidentiality of users’ browsing and don’t permit the acquisition of the user’s personal identification data;

 

Analytical cookies, through which statistical information is acquired regarding the nature of users’ browsing. They collect and analyze information on use of the site on the part of visitors (pages visited, number of accesses, time remaining on the site, etc.) to optimize management of the site.  This information is processed in aggregate and anonymous form, and these cookies do not collect information that can identify the user in any way.

 

These cookies do not need the user’s prior consent in order to be installed and used (See measure 8 May 2014 of the Data Protection Authority concerning: “Identification of simplified procedures for the privacy policy and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies”). The website functions effectively only if the technical cookies are enabled. It’s possible, however, to decide not to consent to the use of cookies on your computer by modifying the settings of the browser used, as indicated below. It’s necessary to remember, however, that if cookies are disabled, a number of functions of the site could be disabled.

 

Types of third-party cookies or tools that could use them for statistical purposes.

The services contained in this section permit the Data Controller to monitor and analyze traffic data and are used to track the user’s behavior.

Google Analytics with anonymized Internet Protocol address.

Google Analytics is a web analysis service supplied by Google Inc. (“Google”), a third party company with respect to the Data Controller. Google uses personal data of users collected with the aim of tracking and examining the use of this online space, to compile reports and share them with other services developed by Google. Google could use the personal data to contextualize and personalize the adverts of its advertising network. This integration of Google Analytics makes the Internet Protocol address (IP address) anonymous. The anonymization functions by abbreviating the IP address of Users within the confines of the Member States of the European Union or in other member countries of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be forwarded to Google’s servers and abbreviated within the United States.

Personal data collected: cookies and use data.

The user may manage preferences relating to cookies directly in their browser and prevent, for example, third parties from installing them. Through browser preferences, it’s also possible to eliminate cookies installed in the past, including cookies in which the consent for installation of the cookies on the part of this site may be saved. It’s important to note that the functioning of this site could be affected by disabling all the cookies.

We would like to point out, by way of information, that advertising companies permit the refusal of receipt of targeted adverts, if you so wish. This does not prevent the setting of cookies, but interrupts the use and collection of certain data on the part of said companies.
