This page provides further information about the technologies we use and how they are utilized on the Website and as part of our services and tools. The following is a summary of some important aspects regarding the use of these technologies and the full text of the User Cookie Notice.
Where possible, security measures are in place to prevent unauthorized access to cookies and similar technologies. A unique code ensures that only we and/or our authorized service providers may access cookie data. As regards processing of the user’s personal data in relation to cookies issued directly by us, the data controller is ABP Nocivelli S.p.A.
As regards processing activities for cookies issued by third parties, each third party is an independent data controller. Service providers are companies that support us in various aspects of our business, for example in relation to Website operations and tools.
We use our authorized service providers to offer you advertising that is relevant to your interests, both on our services and on other websites.
These service providers may place cookies on your device through our services (third-party cookies). They may also store information that allows them to identify the user’s device, such as an IP address or other unique or device codes.
The information that must be included on websites that handle cookies is set out below.
What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies?
Like most sites, we use small data files that are stored on the user’s computer, tablet, cell phone, or other mobile device (collectively referred to as the “device”) to store certain data each time the user accesses or interacts with the Website, services, and tools. The specific names and types of cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies used may change over time. To help you more fully understand the rules and use of these technologies, some terms and their definitions are set out below:
Cookie: small text files (usually made up of letters and numbers) that are saved in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a site or view a message. Cookies allow a site to recognize a particular device or browser. There are various types of cookies:
- Session cookies expire at the end of a browser session and allow us to connect the user’s actions during that specific session.
- Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain stored on the user’s device even after the browser session ends and allow the user’s preferences or actions to be remembered across multiple sites.
- Proprietary cookies are set by the site the user is visiting.
- Third-party cookies are set by a third-party site other than the site the user is visiting.
Cookies may be disabled or removed using tools that are available in most browsers. Cookie preferences must be set separately for each browser, as each offers specific features and options.
Web beacon: small images (also known as “pixel tags” or “transparent GIFs”) that we may include on our sites, services, apps, messages, and tools. In general, these work with cookies to identify our users and their activities.
Similar technologies: technologies that store data in the browser or device using locally shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies work in all browsers. In some cases, use of local storage cannot be fully managed by browsers, but must be managed using specific tools. We do not use such technologies to store information to create targeted advertisements on our website or others.
The terms “cookies” and “similar technologies” may be used interchangeably in these rules to refer to all technologies used to store data in the user’s browser or device, or technologies that collect data or enable user identification in the manner described above.
Some of the Website’s functions, services and tools are only available through the use of these technologies. You will always be able to block, delete, or disable them if your browser, app, or device allows it. However, if you reject cookies or other similar technologies, you may not be able to use certain features, services, apps or tools on the Website.
For more information on how to block, delete, or disable such technologies, consult the settings of the device or browser you are using.
In general, these technologies allow the Website to store important information in your browser or device and use it later to identify you on our servers or internal systems. Where applicable, we protect cookies and other similar technologies by assigning them a unique code, ensuring that only we and/or our authorized service providers may interpret them.
The user’s personal data is not stored in cookies or other similar technologies used.
All personal information acquired and stored through the use of these technologies is obtained only after notifying you and obtaining your consent through positive action on your part. We obtain your consent by clearly informing you that these technologies are used and giving you the opportunity to disable them, as described above.
The uses of these technologies may be classified in the following general categories:
- Use for advertising purposes or content personalization. With your consent, which must necessarily be expressed through positive action by you, we may use our own or third-party cookies and web beacons to offer content, including advertisements relevant to your interests, on our sites or third-party sites. This includes the use of technologies to better assess the usefulness of advertisements and content presented to the user, such as by monitoring whether or not they have selected an advertisement.
To opt out of the use of third-party cookies and web beacons related to advertising, see the section “Advertising Networks and Exchanges Operated by Third Parties” below. Rejecting proprietary and third-party advertising-related cookies and web beacons means that you will still see our advertising, but it will not be targeted to your interests, as it would be if you allowed proprietary or third-party cookies and web beacons or related technologies.
If you wish to reject all other types of technologies used on our sites, services, apps, or tools, you may do so by blocking, deleting, or disabling them as permitted by your device or browser.
You have the right to obtain confirmation of the existence of your personal data at any time.
Specifically, you have the right to obtain information on the origin of your data, the purposes and means of processing, the logic applied to processing by electronic means, and the identification details of the controller, manager or processor.
You also have the right to have your data updated, corrected, or supplemented, and to object to processing with legitimate justification.
