It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control how we use them.
A “cookie” is a small text file containing information that is sent to the browser of the user’s computer and/or mobile device (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Device”) from the website’s server when a user accesses the website, and it is stored on the Device’s hard drive. Cookies can broadly be divided into two categories: the first-party cookie and the third-party cookie.
A. TYPES OF COOKIES
Cookies are divided into two families:
- Cookies set by the site owner or manager, known as first-party cookies;
- Cookies installed by managers outside the site, known as third-party cookies.
The responsibility and management of first-party cookies is assumed directly by the data controller.
The responsibility for management of third-party cookies lies with their respective owners and operators, who must provide appropriate opt-out mechanisms in their privacy notices.
There are six different types of cookies that may be present on this website:
1. Technical, session and analytics cookies
These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site in order to manage access operations to the sites (so-called login), to record configuration preferences if available or to integrate plug-ins necessary to display certain content.
Cookies used for statistical and performance analysis are also considered technical cookies, as long as they are configured to collect data in aggregated and anonymous form that provide an overall picture of the performance of the sites and content. They do not require the acquisition of consent.
2. Traffic and performance analysis cookies
These cookies allow us to know how visitors use a website, what content they access to and the geographic regions they come from. The collection of this information allows us to assess and improve the operation of the site and prioritise the production of content that better match users’ information needs. These cookies are subject to the users’ consent and refusal that can be expressed directly to the respective administrators.
3. Profiling cookies for marketing and advertising purposes
These are cookies used to deliver advertising content within a website or application. These cookies are used, for example, to track the location of the advertisement and to check whether a user has already seen the advertisement, but also to follow the user during her or his site navigation in order to establish a user profile and to propose her or him advertisements linked to the user’s personal interests and socio-demographic characteristics.
4. Widgets and other interconnection tools with external sites and functionalities
These cookies are often associated to a graphical element of the site such as an interactive button or a specific logo (e.g. the Facebook “like”). They are used to integrate the functionalities of other sites in those ones you are browsing. These cookies are under the responsibility of their operators and you can object to their use directly on the information pages of the respective administrator.
5. Tracking pixel of Web Beacon
6. Usability tools
These are functionalities embedded in application code that allow the site operator to analyse how users interact with the content and functionality in order to verify the ease of use, the quality of the design and to plan improvements. These scripts are not configured to collect elements typed by the user that would undermine the user’s privacy and are subject to explicit consent. The refusal of consent, when present on the site pages, is handled directly by the data controller.
B. COOKIES NOT SUBJECT TO CONSENT
Technical, session and analytics cookies, as described in A.1. above.
C. COOKIES SUBJECT TO CONSENT
The following cookies are subject to the collection of your consent. You can give your consent in a simplified way as indicated in the information banner that you saw when you first visited this site, or selectively using our Consent Management Tool.
To make your consent preferences management easier, we provide you with the button below, through which you can selectively refuse individual cookies or entire categories of purposes for which cookies are collected, as well as of course to be able to refuse or to give consent to all managed cookies with a single click.
It’s easy to use: activate or deactivate the purposes for which you give consent, or alternatively select the individual entities you wish to authorise or prevent from operating, then click the “Save preferences” button to record your choices. All of the Controller’s partners are committed to respect your choices.
D. COOKIES OF THIRD PARTIES
For all cookies installed by third parties not known to the Data Controller who, with your consent, process personal data also through this site, you may exercise your right to object by accessing the site https://worldinsight.com
As each browser – and often different versions of the same browser – also differ considerably from one another, if you prefer to take action yourself via your browser preferences, you can find detailed information on the necessary procedure in your browser’s help section. For an overview of how to do this for the most common browsers, please visit https://worldinsight.com
E. DURATION OF PROCESSING
The cookies managed by the data controller have a maximum duration of 12 month, unless you voluntarily renew your consent.
The profiling cookies managed by the owner are anonymous and, once expired, remain within the statistical systems and profiling platforms in an aggregate form and not traceable to your browser for general statistical purposes only. The cookies managed by third parties have the durations indicated in their respective Cookie Policies.
