COOKIE POLICY

The software applications used may contain “cookie” technology. The primary function of cookies is to facilitate the user’s browsing. Cookies may provide information about browsing on the site and enable the functioning of certain services that require the various pages of the site viewed by the user to be identified. For access to the portal independently of the presence of a cookie, the browser type, operating system (e.g. Microsoft, Apple, Android, Linux), host and URL of the visitor are recorded, as well as the data pertaining to the requested page. In any case, the user may configure their browser settings to inform them when a cookie is received and thus decide to delete it. Further information about cookies can be found on the websites of the relevant browser providers.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored in the user’s computer when they visit certain web pages. In most browsers, cookies are enabled. The information necessary to change your browser’s cookie settings can be found below. Cookies are not harmful to the device on which they are stored. The cookies that we generate do not store identifying personal data, but we use the information they contain to improve users’ visits to our site. For example, they are useful for identifying and resolving errors.

Cookies can perform various functions, such as helping a user to browse the various pages efficiently, and can generally improve a user’s experience. The Data Controller reserves the right to use cookies, with the user’s consent, where required by the law or applicable regulations, to facilitate browsing on this site and to personalise the information that appears. The Data Controller also reserves the right to use similar systems to collect information about users of the site, such as browser type and operating system used, for statistical or security purposes.

Types of cookies

Cookies can be divided into two categories: “session” and “persistent”. Session cookies, having been downloaded, are then erased when the browser is closed, whereas persistent cookies are stored until they expire or are deleted. The session cookies we use aim to speed up web traffic analysis and facilitate users’ access to the services offered by the site. Session cookies are primarily used during authentication, authorisation and browsing within services accessed via sign-up. Most browsers are configured to accept cookies. If you do not wish to accept cookies, you can change your computer settings to reject them or display a warning when they are stored. If the data subject rejects the use of cookies, some of the site’s functionalities may not operate correctly and some services may not be available. The use of session cookies is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers, which are necessary to enable secure and efficient exploration of the site. These data are of a technical nature and are valid temporarily, and are not collected for the purpose of identifying users. However, through their functioning and in combination with other data held by third parties (e.g. the data subject’s internet service provider), they may allow users to be identified. First-party cookies can be read only by the domain that created them.

The cookies we use:

Technical cookies These are cookies that ensure normal browsing and usage of the website and enable a connection between the server and the user’s browser. These are cookies that are essential for browsing (e.g. session identifiers), since they enable visitors to use the site’s main functionalities and protect the connection. Without these cookies, it may not be possible to use the site normally.
Functional cookies These are cookies that are stored on the computer or other device which, based on the user’s requests, record the user’s choices, so as to enable them to remember said choices in order to provide an improved, personalised browsing experience within the service or access to the site  (e.g. recording passwords in restricted areas, storing products in the basket so the user can find them again in the next session, saving the selected language, watching a video or commenting on a blog, etc.). Functional cookies are not essential for the functioning of the site, but they improve the quality and experience of the user’s browsing.
Analytical cookies These are cookies that gather information about how the user uses the website, such as which web pages are visited most often. This site uses third-party cookies generated by Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a statistical analysis service that calculates, for example, the number of visitors, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows), and how long they spend on the site. All the data collected are anonymous and aggregated, and therefore do not identify users. The information generated by cookies about users’ use of the website (including their IP address) is transmitted and stored in Google’s servers.
