Information on the use of cookies

The Brand Italia websites use cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of the procedures and to improve the user’s experience of online applications. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, how Brand Italia uses them and how to manage them.

Definitions

Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser) information to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behavior and use of services.

In the following of this document, we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies”.

Types of cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies we can distinguish different categories:

  • Technical cookies. These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the website and are used to manage the login and access to the restricted functions of the site. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (once the browser is closed they are deleted).
  • Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
  • Profiling cookies. These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The Brand Italia websites do not use cookies of this type.

Third-party cookies

By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“owners”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins aims at sharing content on social networks.

The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by specific policies to which we ask comply with. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, we suggest to visit the following web addresses of the various policies on how to manage cookies.

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user.

These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

Cookie management

The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser.

Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.

The disabling of “third-party” cookies does not affect the navigability in any way.

The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies “owners” and those of “third parties”.

As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools-> Options -> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
