The following information is provided for the Company’s Website and not for other third-party websites that may be visited by the user through links of the Website itself.
1. Browsing data, Cookies and other tracking tools
1.1. Browsing data
The IT systems and software used for the Website collect, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
Such data are not collected for the purpose of being associated with identified persons, but due to their nature may, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.
The above data include IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the Website, addresses in URI notation (Uniform Resourse Identifier) of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the files received, the numbers / codes indicating the response status given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s computer environment.
These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the Website and to check its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing.
The data could be used to ascertain responsibilities in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the Website and/or the Company: except for this case, the data are kept for the periods set forth in the relevant legislations or, in general, for the time strictly necessary to provide the user with the service required to guarantee the transmission of the communications.
1.2 Cookies and other tracking tools
Cookies are usually text strings that websites (so-called “Publisher” o “First Part“) visited by the user, or different sites or web server (so-called “Third Parties“), place and store – directly, in the case of the Publisher, and indirectly, through the latter, in the case of “Third Parties” – within a terminal device in the availability of the user himself. The terminals to which reference is made can be, for example, a personal computer, a tablet, a smartphone, or any other device capable of storing information.
Browsers and the above devices can store cookies and then transmit them again to the websites that generated them in case of a subsequent visit by the same user, thus maintaining memory of his previous interaction with one or more websites.
The information encoded in the cookies may include personal data, such as an IP address, username, unique identifier or email address, but may also contain non-personal data, such as language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the Website.
Cookies can therefore perform important functions, including: computer authentication, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, accessibility of online contents, tracking of items in an online shopping cart, or information used for filling out an IT form. The so-called “authentication” cookies are particularly important when is necessary to check the identity of a person accessing certain services, such as banking; on the other hand, through cookies it is also possible to convey behavioral advertising and then measure the effectiveness of the advertising message.
1.3 Types of cookies
Cookies and the other tracking tools may have different characteristics, from a temporal point of view, and therefore be described according to their duration (session-based or permanent), or from a subjective point of view (depending on whether the Publisher acts independently or on behalf of “Third Party“). In any case, the classification that mainly meets the data protection perspective is the following one, based on three macro-categories:
According to current legislation, the use of technical cookies is subject only to the obligation to provide this information, while profiling cookies and other tracking tools can only be used with the consent – free, specific and informed – of the user, expressed through the appropriate features of the Website.
