What are cookies
Cookies are small text strings that sites visited by the user send to his/her terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored, to be then re-transmitted to the same sites the next time the user visits. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on his/her terminal device that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site he/she is visiting may reside.
Types of cookies
Cookies are classified into two categories:
- technical cookies, which are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service” (see Art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code). They are not used for any further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same. Users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies, while the obligation to provide information remains;
- profiling cookies, which are aimed at creating profiles of the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that these devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian regulations require that users be adequately informed about their use and thus express their consent to their use.
The cookies used on this site
Duration and expiry of Cookies and other similar Tracking Tools may vary depending on what is set by the Controller or each third party provider. Some of them expire at the end of the User’s browsing session.
In addition to what is specified in the description of each of the categories below, Users can obtain more detailed and up-to-date information on the duration, as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Tracking Tools – in the privacy policies of the respective third-party providers (via the links provided) or by contacting the Controller.
Other Tracking Tools
For the purposes of analysing and optimising our websites, we use the various services described below. This allows us to analyse, for example, how many users visit our site, what information is most requested and how users find the website. The data we collect include the websites from which the user arrives at another website (‘referrers’), which subpages of the website they access and how often, and the length of time for which they view a subpage. In this way we are able to develop and improve our website to make it more user-friendly. The data collected is not used to personally identify individual users. Anonymous or pseudonymised data will be collected.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
This use covers the operating mode of Universal Analytics. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions on multiple devices to a pseudonymised user ID and then analyse a user’s activities on all devices.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by means of a corresponding setting in your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the add-on. Disabling cookies prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent the collection of Universal Analytics on various devices, you must deactivate it on all systems you use.
Google Tag Manager
For the sake of transparency, we inform you that we use Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager does not itself collect any personally identifiable information. Tag Manager facilitates the integration and management of our tags. Tags are small pieces of code that are used, for example, to measure traffic and user behaviour, record the effects of online advertising and social channels, set up remarketing, focus on target groups and test and optimise websites. If you have deactivated them, Google Tag Manager will take them into account.
For more information on Google Tag Manager, please visit this link.
Existence of an automated decision-making process
There is no automated decision making process with respect to the Data.
