GENERAL INFORMATION ON COOKIES

What are cookies?

Cookies are computer files or partial data that can be saved to your computer or any other internet-enabled device (e.g. smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website Usually a cookie contains the name of its originating website, its “life span” (i.e. how long it will stay on your device), and a code that is usually a unique randomly-generated number.

What are cookies used for?

Cookies are used to make user browsing simpler, and to better match the websites for your interests and needs. Cookies can also be used to help speed up users’ future experiences and usability when returning to websites. They are also used to gather anonymous aggregate statistics that, by helping to understand how people use websites, help the websites to be improved in structure and content.

 

Cookie types What they do Whether they collect my personal data or identify me
Necessary These cookies are necessary for the sites to function properly, they allow users to browse the websites and exploit such features as memorizing previous actions (texts typed in) for when users return to a page during the same browsing session.

This helps to improve website performance. These cookies do not identify you as an individual. All data are collected and aggregated anonymously.
Functionality These cookies allow websites to remember choices made when browsing (e.g. user name, preferred language, geographical region, products put into the cart) to give you a more personalized online experience. They can also let users view videos, enter game areas and interact with social tools such blogs, chat-rooms and forums.

What kind of cookies are used?

Two types of cookies may be used on websites: ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’.

  • session cookies: these are temporary cookies that remain on your device only for as long as you are connected to that site.
  • persistent cookies: these cookies remain on your device for much longer, or until you delete them manually (how long a cookie stays on your device depends on its ‘life span’, and on your browser settings).

Some of the pages you visit may also collect information using ‘pixel tags’ (also known as ‘clear gifs’), which may be shared with third parties and which directly help marketing and website development activities. For example, the information on website use by site visitors may be shared with advertising agencies to optimally target banner ads on websites.

Another Cookie categorization – as indicated by the Guarantor for personal-data protection – is among technical cookies, profiling cookies, first-party cookies, and third-party cookies.

  • Technical cookies: these cookies are used for browsing or to provide a service requested by users. They are not used for other purposes, and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without using these cookies, some operations cannot be completed, or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as home banking (account-balance display, account transfers, bills payment, etc.) for which these cookies are indispensable for allowing users to be identified, and remain so, during the session.
  • Profiling cookies: these cookies track users’ browsing, and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc. They allow to send to users’ devices advertising messages that match preferences previously expressed by the users while browsing online.
  • First-part cookies, which are generated and managed directly by the managers of the browsed websites.
  • Third-part cookies, which are generated and managed by subjects other than those who manage the browsed websites (depending, usually, on a contract between the website owners and third parties)

What are third-party cookies?

Very many suppliers may install cookies on your device when you visit sites, to allow them to provide the services they are offering. If you would like more information on these cookies, along with information on how to avoid receiving these cookies, see the appropriate table at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/

There are many ways of managing cookies. To find out how to adjust or change your browser’s settings, you can refer to your browsers’ instructions or “help” areas. Disabling cookies may affect browsing, and you might, for example, not be able to visit certain sections, or not receive personalized information when visiting websites.

If you use several different devices (PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.), to access and view websites, you must ensure that each browser on each device is set to your cookie preferences.
