This document informs Users of the technologies that enable the Site to achieve the purposes described below. These technologies enable the Owner to access and store information (using a Cookie, for example) or use resources (running a script, for example) on a User’s device when the User interacts with the Site.
For the sake of simplicity, all these technologies are defined as “Trackers” in this document, unless there is a reason to differentiate between them.
For example, although Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to speak of Cookies in the context of mobile applications, as they are browser-based trackers. This is why, in this document, the term Cookies is only used when it is specifically intended to indicate this specific type of Tracker.
Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may require the User’s consent. Once consent has been given, it may be freely withdrawn at any time by following the instructions provided in this document.
The Site uses Trackers managed directly by the Owner (the so-called “first-party” Trackers) and Trackers that activate services provided by a third party (the so-called “third-party” Trackers). Unless otherwise specified in this document, third-party suppliers may access Trackers managed by themselves.
The periods of validity and expiry of Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime defined by the Owner or supplier concerned. Some expire at the end of the user’s browsing session.
In addition to what is specified in the descriptions of each of the categories below, Users can find more precise and up-to-date information regarding the description on lifetime as well as any other useful information – such as the presence of other Trackers – in the privacy policies of the respective third-party providers, linked, or by contacting the Owner.
Activities strictly necessary for the operation of the Site
The Site uses so-called “technical” Cookies and other similar Trackers to carry out activities that are strictly necessary for its operation.
Other activities involving Trackers
Interaction and basic functions
The Site uses Trackers to enable basic interaction and functionality, allowing Users to access certain Site features and facilitate their communication with the Owner.
The Site uses Trackers to measure traffic and analyze User behavior in order to improve the Site.
Targeting and advertising
The Site uses Trackers to provide personalized marketing content based on User behavior and to operate, deliver and track advertisements.
Certain services used by the Owner comply with the Transparency and Consent Framework from the IABan initiative that facilitates responsible privacy practices in the digital advertising industry, offering Users greater transparency and control over how their data is used for ad tracking purposes. Users can personalize their advertising preferences at any time by accessing the advertising preferences panel from the cookie notification or using the corresponding link on the Site.
The Site participates in the IAB Europe Transparency and Consent Framework and complies with its specifications and policies. The Site uses Cookie Notice & Compliance for GDPR / CCPA as its consent management software.
How to manage preferences and give or withdraw consent
There are various ways to manage Tracker preferences and to give and withdraw consent, as appropriate:
Users can manage Tracker preferences directly in their own device settings, for example by preventing the use or storage of Trackers.
In addition, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, Users may give or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences in the cookie notification, or by updating such preferences accordingly using the appropriate consent preferences widget, if applicable.
It is also possible, via the browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the User’s initial consent.
Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory can be deleted by deleting the browsing history.
Access to Tracker settings
Users can, for example, find information on how to manage Cookies in the most commonly used browsers at the following addresses:
Users can also manage certain categories of Trackers used on mobile applications by disabling the appropriate device settings, such as device advertising settings for mobile devices or tracking settings in general (Users can open the device settings and search for the appropriate setting).
Advertising industry-specific deactivations
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Users are informed that they may follow the instructions provided by YourOnlineChoices (Europe), the Network Advertising Initiative (United States) and Digital Advertising Alliance (United States), the DAAC (Canada), the DDAI (Japan), or other similar services. These initiatives allow Users to select their tracking preferences for most advertising tools. The Owner therefore recommends that Users use these resources in addition to the information provided in this document.
The Digital Advertising Alliance offers an application called AppChoices which helps Users control interest-based advertising on mobile applications.
