1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small strings of text that are sent to a user’s terminal when sites are visited by a user. This text is sent to the terminal, which is usually the browser and are stored there before being re-transmitted to the same sites the next time the user visits them. While surfing a site, the user may also receive cookies on their terminal that are sent from different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”) that may contain some elements (such as images, maps, sounds and specific links to other domains) in common with the website the user is consulting. Cookies are usually be found in a user’s browser in very large numbers and sometimes last for a very long time, and they can be used for a number of different purposes; I.T. authentication procedures, session monitoring, the storage of specific configurations for the user accessing the server and so on.
2. Type of cookies used
Below is a list of the type of cookies used by this Website:
This type of cookie enables certain sections of the Website to operate correctly. These are divided into two categories; long-lasting ones and those that function just for that particular session:
- persistent: once the browser is closed, they are not destroyed, but remain until they reach a pre-set expiry date;
- session: these are destroyed every time the browser is closed.
Both types of cookies are sent by us and are essential in order to view the Website correctly, and they will continue to be sent and used, with regard to the technical services we offer, unless the User modifies the settings in their own browser (thereby altering the way the pages of the Website are viewed).
This type of cookie is used to collect information on the way in which the Website is used. We reserve the right to use this information to elaborate anonymous statistical analysis aimed at improving the use of the Website. This type of cookie collects data on user activity and on how they have arrived at the Website. Analytical cookies are sent from the Website itself or from third-party domains. They can also be called technical cookies when they are used directly by the site operator to gather information in an aggregated and anonymous way. A web traffic analysis service is provided by Google Inc. (henceforth “Google”). These are third-party cookies which are collected and managed in order to monitor and improve the performance of the host website (performance cookies).
More specifically, Google Analytics uses “cookies” from this site to collect and analyse information on how a website is used. This information is collected by Google Analytics and then processed in order to prepare reports for operators regarding the activities of the websites themselves. For more information, please refer to the link below: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/. The user can choose to disable this activity by Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google in their browser. To disable the activity of Google Analytics, please refer to the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
This Website does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. In any case, should it be used in the future, we will ensure that we adopt the anonymization function of the user’s IP in Analytics, using the “Mask IP address” (in this way Google will not associate the IP address with any other data held, nor will it attempt to connect an IP address with the identity of a user).
Cookies last until the end of the browsing session and are designed to keep the session open for the user.
