Cookies are small text files that websites send to the user’s computer, where they are stored to be used by the said websites when the user visits them the next times. Third-party cookies are instead installed by a different website than the one that the user is visiting. This happens because every website may contain objects that may be located in different servers than the one that hosts the visited website (i.e. images, maps, sounds, links to external websited, etc.).
Cookies are used for different purposes: digital authentication, session monitoring, recording of website settings, recording of preferences, etc.
The website uses the following types of cookies:
If cookies are turned off, some functions of the Website, i.e. third-party services, may not be available, and the following objects may not be visualised:
- social plugins;
- Google maps.
This Website uses third-party cookies (i.e. social plugin buttons) with the aim to offer additional services to the users, facilitate the use of the Website or provide personalised marketing messages. The Webiste does not have any control over these cookies that are fully managed by third parties and does not have access to the information collected by them. Details on the use of these cookies, on their purposes and on how they may be turned off are provided by the third parties directly at the pages indicated below.
We remind that user’s tracking does not usually identify the user, unless he has subscribed to the third-party service and is logged in the service when using the social plugin. In this case, the user has already agreed on the processing of his data by giving his consent to the third party directly (i.e. Facebook).
The Website uses the following third-party cookies:
- Google Analytics: it is used to analyse how users use the Website, to send reports on Website’s activities and reports on user’s behaviour, to verify how often users visit the Website, how the Website is located by users and what pages are visited the most. This information is also used to compare the Webiste with other similar websites.
Categories of data: browser identification, browsing date and time, originating page and IP address.
Where data is processed: European Union.
Data does not identify the users and is not matched with other data of the same users. Data is processed in aggregated form and it is anonimised (last eight digits are truncated). Google Inc. may not match this data with the one collected from other services, in compliance with a specific agreement (DPA).
More information on Google Analytics cookies is available on Google Analytics Cookie Usage on websites page (Google Analytics Cookie Usage on Websites).
The user may disable (opt out of) Google Analytics by installing on his browser the specific app provided by Google.
Social network plugins
The Website includes some plugins and/or buttons that facilitate the sharing of information on your favourite social networks. When you visit a page of the Website that shows a plugin, your browser connects directly to the social network’ servers, from which the plugins have been uploaded. These servers may track your visit to the Website and associate it to your social network account, expecially if your are logged in the social network or if you have recently visited a website with social plugins. If you do not want the social network to register data in relation to your visit to the Website, you have to log out of the social network and probably delete cookies that the social network has installed on your browser.
The Website contains plugins that have been designed to protect user’s privacy and they do so by processing user’s data only if the user clicks the plugin and not when he just opens the page that hosts the plugins.
