1. DEFINITIONS AND CLASSIFICATIONS
1.1. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the User’s computer. They may contain information about the User to improve his or her navigation experience. Cookies are sent from the server of the website the User is using to the User’s terminal (usually to the browser) where they are stored (for a variable length of time depending on their type). They are then retransmitted back to the website the next time the User visits to optimise navigation.
Cookies have the same technical features and only differ from each other on the basis of their function.
1.2. The main differences include:
first party cookies/ third party cookies:
First party cookies are installed directly on the User’s terminal by the manager of the website, whereas
Third party cookies are installed by a different website through the manager of the website that the User is visiting;
technical/profiling/analytical cookies: this classification regards the purpose of the cookie, such as:
– technical cookies, have the sole purpose of contributing towards ensuring the website functions properly, or improving the User’s browsing experience. They have no ulterior purpose and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website; they can be further divided into:
- Session cookies, designed to guarantee normal website navigation and use;
- Permanent cookies, such as first party or assimilated analytical cookies (see below), used to collect information in aggregated form, regarding the number of Users and their navigation;
- Functional cookies, designed to allow the User to navigate on the basis of a series of selected criterion, for example language.
Technical cookies are necessary to guarantee efficient navigation on our website. They can be installed without prior User consent;
– profiling cookies, are used to create User profiles and are also used to send advertising messages in line with User preferences shown during on-line navigation.
Our website does not use profiling cookies;
– analytical cookies, provide the website manager with purely statistical data (such as the number of visitors to a website during certain time frames). Our first party analytical cookies are completely assimilated into our technical cookies. The same applies to third party analytical cookies, on condition that they are rendered anonymous, so that the third party cannot access the unbundled analytical data on an IP level.
Our website uses Google Analytics cookies. IP addresses are made anonymous to prevent data comparison.
