- What are cookies and what are they used for?
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his/her terminal (usually to the browser). Such cookies are stored into the user’s terminal in order to be retransmitted to the same websites when the user accesses them again (so called first-party cookies). During the browsing on a website, the user may receive on his/her terminal also cookies of different websites or webservers (so called third-party cookies); this happens because the visited websites contain items such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other websites that are hosted on a server other than the one on which the requested page is hosted. In other words, these are those cookies that are set by a website different from the one that the user is currently visiting.
The cookies may be limited to a single browsing session (so called session cookies) and, in such case, they automatically disable when the user closes the browser. Some other cookies may have a preset expiry date and, in such case, they will remain stored and active in the user’s hard-disk until such expiry date, continuing to collect information in the course of the subsequent browsing sessions (so called permanent cookies).
Cookies are used for different purposes. Some of them are used to allow the user to visit a website and use its features (so called technical cookies). Some other cookies are used in order to collect statistical information, in aggregated or non-aggregated form, about the number of users who access a Website and how a website is used (so called monitoring or analytics cookies). Lastly, other cookies are used to track the user’s profile as a consumer and display advertising on a website which are consistent with your interests (so called, profiling cookies).
- What cookies are used on this Website?
– Technical cookies
Technical cookies are used on the Website for the sole purpose of allowing you to visit the Website and use its features. These cookies are first-party cookies, as they are stored directly by us through the Website.
Some cookies are necessary to provide you with an optimized user experience or to allow your authentication on the Website, e.g. to purchase something on the Website or access your personal area (so called navigation cookies). Normally navigation cookies are session cookies and, therefore, once the Internet browser is closed, they are automatically disabled.
Other technical cookies are useful to allow the User to save some of his/her preferences (e.g. the language or the country of origin) without having to reset such preferences each time he/she visits the Website again (so called functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, because they remain stored in your computer even after the Interest browser has been closed, until the relevant expiry date or until you delete them from your browser.
The following technical cookies are currently used on the Website:
|Cookie Name||Cookie Category||Cookie Function||Expiry Date|
||This cookie is used to store the visitor’s preferences and to remember not to ask the visitor again to accept cookies.||13 months|
||This cookie can be set to prevent the tracking code from sending any information to HubSpot.||13 months|
||This cookie is used to consistently offer visitors the same version of an A/B test page that they have seen before.||Session|
||This cookie is used to prevent the welcome message from being displayed for one day after it has been rejected.||1 day|
||This cookie is set when visitors access a site hosted by HubSpot.||1 year|
As provided for by the applicable privacy laws, your prior consent to the storing of these cookies is not necessary. Obviously, you can freely decide to block the storing of the technical cookies, by changing your Internet browser settings (please refer to paragraph n. 3 to know how to do it). However, please consider that, by blocking the storing of the technical cookies or deleting such cookies, the possibility to access the Website, use it in whole or in part, enable/disable specific features or receive specific services may be in whole or in part jeopardized.
– Analytics cookies
Analytics cookies are used on the Website to collect aggregate statistical information on the number of users accessing the Website and how they visit it. The analytics cookies of this Website are third-party cookies, as they are not stored directly by the Company but by the relevant third parties.
The following third-party analytics cookies are used on this Website. We do not request your prior consent to the storing of such cookies, because the data they collect are anonymous and the relevant third parties cannot have access to the analytics disaggregated data based on your IP address (in other words, by using these cookies, the relevant third party cannot identify you, your IP address having been partially masked):
Other third-party analytics cookies are only installed on the Site with your prior consent, because they are not anonymised and the third party can access disaggregated analytics data at the IP address level (in other words, by using these cookies, the third party could theoretically trace your identity through your IP address):
|Cookies Name||Cookies Category||Cookies Function||Expiry Date|
||This is the main cookie for tracking visitors. It contains the domain, utk, initial timestamp (first visit), last timestamp (last visit), current date/time (current visit) and session number (increments for each subsequent session).||13 months|
||This cookie is used to keep track of a visitor’s identity.||13 months|
||This cookie tracks sessions.||30 minutes|
||Each time HubSpot changes the session cookie, this cookie is also set to determine whether the visitor has restarted their browser.||Session Cookie|
For this reason, when you access the Site, a banner is displayed prominently informing you that third party analytics cookies are used on the Site and that if you consent to the installation of cookies, we will track your consent through a technical cookie. This will ensure that we do not display the cookie banner on your subsequent visits to the Site. Please note that if you delete this technical cookie from your browser in the manner set out in paragraph 3 below, we will lose track of your consent and therefore display the cookie banner again on your next visit to the Site.
Obviously, you can freely decide to block the storing of analytics cookies at any time, and, in such case, the possibility to visit the Website or benefit of its contents will not be jeopardized in any manner whatsoever. To know how to do it, please read carefully the privacy policies of the relevant third parties by clicking on the links in the table above.
