  1. Cookies

8.1 Navigation Data

The information systems and software procedures put in place to ensure the functioning of the Website acquire certain items of personal data as a result of their normal operation, such data being transmitted implicitly through the use of Internet communication protocol.

While such data is not collected for the purpose of identifying Users, for its very nature it could, if associated with data held by third parties, permit the identification of Users or visitors to the Website. (Such data includes IP addresses, names of the computer domains used by persons connected to the Website, codes identifying server response states, browser identities, etc..)

This data is used exclusively to compile statistical (and therefore anonymous) information and to monitor the correct functioning of the Website. Internet connection data is not kept for more than six months other than in the event of legally pursuable attacks on the Website.

Data derived from internet services is not divulged or diffused.


8.2 General Information on Cookies

Cookies are text files that websites send to the terminals (typically to the browsers) of visiting Users. Cookies are saved on Users' computers and returned to the website of origin the next time a user visits that same website using the same terminal. Websites may also permit the transmission of so-called “third party” cookies. These are cookies generated by websites other than the website the User is visiting (via elements in that website such as banners, images, maps, sounds and links to the pages of other domains).

Depending on persistency, cookies are classed as session cookies (temporary cookies that are deleted automatically at the end of the navigation session or when the browser is closed) and persistent cookies (which remain on the terminal until they expire or are deleted by the user).

Cookies serve various purposes. Basically, they are used to ensure effective data transmission and communications and to deliver services requested by Users. In particular they activate and optimise Website functions, permit authentication of data and prevent abuses, monitor sessions and improve Users' navigation experience, for example by memorising specific information regarding Users (such as their preferences, browser and type of device).

These cookies (whose use does not require the consent of Users) are known as “technical” cookies; without them some of the technical operations described above either could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure.

If cookies are used for other purposes, typically for User profiling and for sending promotional and advertising messages (so-called “profiling” cookies), as soon as Users reach the home page or other landing page in the Website, a banner is displayed in a prominent position containing a brief notice on the use of the cookies concerned and requesting consent to proceed. Users may consent to the use of these cookies and continue their navigation by clicking an element under the banner or simply by closing the banner.

In any case, these cookies can only be read and modified by the website that generates them. They cannot be used to collect data from Users' terminals or to transmit viruses. Some functions normally performed by cookies can also be performed by other technologies; therefore, in the context of this data protection notice, the term “cookies” may refer to actual cookies or to other analogous technologies.


8.3 Use of cookies by the Website

This Website may use session cookies or persistent cookies. The cookies generated directly by this Website are “technical” cookies, used to ensure:

  1. a) easier use of the Website and its audio-visual Content (e.g. by running utilities such as Flash Player);
  2. b) correct functioning of the connection (e.g. by channelling User requests to the most appropriate servers).


8.4 "Third Party" Cookies

This Website also permits transmission to Users' terminals of third party cookies from companies with which FIRMA snc cooperates. FIRMA snc acts exclusively as technical intermediary for such cookies. While sending them, FIRMA snc does not control their functioning, which remains the sole responsibility of the third parties concerned. (FIRMA snc has neither control over nor access to the data provided and acquired.)


8.5 Management of Cookie Choices

Users can control the way cookies are used through their browser.

  1. A) Browser settings

Users can set their own preferences governing the use of cookies. In particular they may use the functionalities found in all common browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari) to delete/remove all or some cookies and to change the browser's settings in order to block cookies or limit their use to specific websites. To learn how to configure browser settings (which are normally accessible from the browser's toolbar), go to the “Support” area of the browser supplier's website (which can be found using a normal search engine).

Disabling cookies does not in itself prevent use of the Services offered by this Website. However, if all cookies, including technical cookies, are deleted/disabled, it may prove impossible, more difficult or less secure to perform certain operations. This applies, for example to operations inside the Website's Reserved Area (because cookies are used to identify the User and store his details throughout the session).
