Cookies consist of strings of text (computer files or partial data) downloaded to the User’s Internet browser by a server, which are then automatically stored on the User’s computer and automatically re-sent to the server as necessary or every time the User accesses the applicable website. A cookie will normally contain the name of the applicable cookie’s Website of origin, the cookie’s life-span (in other words, how long it will remain on the User’s device), and a value, which is usually a unique, randomly generated number. Thereafter, each time the User accesses the applicable website the cookies are re-sent to the website of origin (first-party cookies) or to some other website that recognises it (third-party cookies). Cookies are useful because they enable a website to recognise the User’s device and have different purposes such as, for example, to enable the User to browse the web pages more efficiently and generally to improve the User’s browsing experience. They also contribute towards ensuring that the displayed online advertising content is more specifically targeted to the User and his/her interests.
If the User chooses to disable the cookies, it may affect and/or limit his/her browsing experience within the websites. For example, he/she may not be able to view certain sections of a website or may not receive customised information while browsing a website.
The operating modes and the options for limiting or blocking cookies can be modified by changing the settings on your own internet browser. Most internet browsers are set by default to automatically accept cookies, however, the User can change the settings to block incoming cookies or to be advised whenever cookies are downloaded to their device. There are various ways to manage cookies and, to this end, users need to go to their own browser’s help screen to find out how to change or modify the applicable settings. In fact, the user is able to modify the default configuration and disable cookies (in other words to block them completely) by selecting the highest available level of protection.
Below are the links to follow in order to manage cookies on the specified browsers:
Users who utilise various different devices to visit and access websites (for example, computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.) must ensure that the cookie settings of each of their devices are set to reflect their personal preferences as regards cookies. To delete cookies from their smartphone/tablet internet browsers, users should check the user manual for the specific device.
Below is an explanatory list.
“Technical” cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the website and to enable Users to browse the website and exploit its features (for example, by storing a record of the user’s previous browsing activities or browsing sessions and/or performing other activities that are essential for the proper functioning of the website).
This category also includes “Analytical” cookies, which help us to understand how Users interact with the website by providing information such as the last web page that the user visited, the number of sections and pages visited, the length of time spent on the website and any events that occur during the browsing session, such as any error messages, for example, thereby helping us to identify any specific difficulties that the User may encounter when browsing the website. This information may be linked to specific User details such as his/her IP address, dominion name or browser type, however, it is combined with other Users’ details in such a way that it is not possible to specifically identify individual users. These cookies are gathered and combined in anonymous form and enable the website administrator to make the website more user-friendly.
Finally, “Functional” cookies enable the website to recognise individual users (for example, their Username) and remember their previous selections so as to customise and streamline their browsing experience. Functional cookies are not essential for the proper functioning of a website, but merely improve the quality of the website and the user’s browsing experience. Should you choose not to accept these cookies, you may find that the website performance and functionality declines and that your access to website content is limited.
“Targeting” or “Profiling” cookies are used to streamline the website content to match the individual User’s needs and interests. They can be used to display targeted adverts and customised publicity inserts based on the User’s specific interests, or to limit the number of times that a User views a particular advert. Furthermore, they also help to gauge the efficacy of advertising campaigns run on the website. The website administrator may use these cookies to record which websites the User has visited and share this information with third parties such as advertising agencies and advertisers, who may use their own cookies to gather this information on User activity on the website.
“Sharing” (or Network) cookies are necessary in order to enable Users to interact with websites via their own social network account and to, for example, express their “likes” and share them with their respective social network contacts.
The website may and does make use of a combination of the following cookies:
– “session” cookies that are stored on the User’s computer purely for technical and/or functional purposes and transmit the necessary session identification data to ensure safe and efficient browsing of the website. These cookies are deleted automatically at the end of every browsing “session” (hence the name) when the browser is closed;
– “Persistent” cookies that remain stored on the computer hard drive until they expire or are physically deleted by the User. Via these persistent cookies, Users who accesses a website (any User that utilises the same computer) are automatically recognised each time they visit the website.
When a User visits a website, it may happen that certain cookies that are not directly controlled by the website administrator are downloaded and stored on the User’s computer. This happens, for example, when the User visits a website that includes content from some other third-party website. As a result, the User will receive cookies from these third-party services. In the case of third-party cookies, the website administrator has no control over the information they contain, nor does he/she have any access to this information. The information is entirely controlled by the third-party companies and is subject to their own respective privacy policies.
The table below indicates the third-party cookies that are present on the website. The latter fall under the exclusive, direct responsibility of the applicable third-party website administrator and are subdivided into the following macro-categories:
– Analytical cookies: these cookies are used to gather and analyse statistics regarding website access and visits. In certain cases these cookies, in association with other information such as the access codes input to gain access to reserved areas (user e-mail address and password) may be used to profile the User (personal habits, websites visited, content downloaded, type of interaction, etc.).
– Widgets: This category includes all those graphic components of a programme User interface that are aimed at facilitating the User’s interaction with the programme itself (merely by way of example, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter cookies are in fact classified as widgets).
– Advertising: This category includes any cookies that are used to provide advertising services within a website.
Users who do not wish to accept third-party cookies on their device can access information, view consent forms and block such cookies via the links below.
These cookies are not directly controlled by our Website and, therefore, in order to withdraw consent you will need to go to the applicable third-party websites or to the website at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/ pto find out how to manage or delete cookies depending on the browser used, or how to set your preferences as regards third-party profiling cookies.
