This page is a section of the extended privacy information which can be consulted on the website and specifically describes the use of cookies by Giro Rosa Iccrea.

Cookie information

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. During navigation on a site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies that are sent from different websites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which certain elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same user is visiting.

Thanks to cookies, the server sends information that will be read and updated each time the user returns to the site. In this way the website can automatically adapt to the user, improving the browsing experience. In addition, cookies provide the site manager with anonymous information on user navigation, also to obtain statistical data on site usage and improve navigation. The information collected through cookies can also be used to construct a "profile" of the preferences expressed by the user while browsing, in order to personalize commercial promotion messages.

Types of cookies

On the basis of the legislation on the protection of personal data, cookies can therefore be divided into "technical cookies", for the use of which the user's consent is not required, and "profiling cookies" for promotional purposes, for which it is instead necessary to collect the user's consent.

In detail:

Technical cookies

This type of cookie is further subdivided into:

Navigation / session cookies.

These are fundamental cookies for navigating the site using all its features, such as session maintenance and access to restricted areas. They are strictly necessary, as without them it would not be possible to provide the services requested. These cookies do not collect information to be used for commercial purposes.

Analytics cookies. They collect and analyze information on the use of the site by visitors (pages visited, number of accesses, time spent on the site, etc.) to optimize site management. These cookies do not collect information that can identify the user in any way.

Functionality cookies. They allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example the language) in order to provide the user with a better browsing experience. The information collected by this type of cookie is anonymous.

The website works optimally if technical cookies are enabled; however, you can decide not to allow the use of cookies on your computer by changing the settings of the browser used as specified below. It should be noted, however, that if cookies are disabled, some features of the site may be disabled.

Profiling cookies

Through cookies, information relating to the user to be used can be collected in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while surfing the net (profile).

Due to the impact on the user's private sphere of the use of this technique for profiling purposes, it is necessary to collect the user's consent.

In the event that cookies are used for these purposes, the site will be proposed a specific brief information (banner) also containing the indication of the mode through which it is possible to express consent to the use of profiling cookies, according to the requirements contained in the provision of the Privacy Guarantor "Identification of simplified procedures for information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies - 8 May 2014". The profiling data is kept for twelve months.

This category also includes the so-called retargeting cookies.

Retargeting cookies

These cookies are used to send personalized advertising to people who surf the web and who have previously visited this site.

Third party cookies

Browsing the site cookies may be installed by other sites, accessible from the site but managed by other parties (third parties). In this case the site owner acts only as a technical intermediary between the user and these sites and to obtain more information about them or to be able to disable them, it is necessary to refer to the information made available by these third parties.
