COOKIE USAGE POLICY
This page outlines the cookie policies applied by the company https://www.theinnovationfactory.it as the data controller for users consulting the website, and more generally for individuals interacting with our Company in various capacities.
1. Definitions and Characteristics of Cookies
Cookies are small text files that websites use to make the user’s browsing experience more efficient. Cookies involve the storage and transmission of information from your initial visit to then transmit updated information during your subsequent visits to optimize the browsing experience by remembering actions and preferences (such as the chosen language, display settings, login data, etc.) so that you do not have to set them during subsequent visits. There are different types of cookies that, depending on their characteristics and functions, may persist on your device for a predetermined period (which can last for years) and are called persistent cookies, while there are cookies that are automatically deleted when the browser is closed, called session cookies. These technologies involve the processing of personal data and are therefore subject to relevant regulations. In line with the Applicable Regulations, we do not need to request your consent for the use of strictly necessary cookies for the proper functioning and operation of the website (referred to as technical cookies) and for statistical purposes (referred to as analytical cookies) in an aggregated, anonymous form. However, we require your explicit consent for the use of first and third-party profiling cookies that create profiles to send you advertising messages in line with the preferences you have expressed while browsing our website.
2. Types of Cookies Used on This Website
These cookies are of a technical nature and allow the website to function correctly. This category includes cookies that are indispensable for the proper functioning of the website and functional cookies that allow the user to enhance the browsing experience based on their choices (such as language selection, etc.). We also use technical cookies to track, in compliance with current regulations, the consents given by users for the receipt of third-party profiling and analytics cookies. The use of technical cookies, whether permanent or session cookies (i.e., not stored persistently on the user’s computer and deleted when the browser is closed), is strictly limited to the technical provision of the service requested by the user and the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of randomly generated numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable secure and efficient browsing of the site and its applications. The technical cookies used on this site prevent the use of other potentially harmful computer techniques for the confidentiality of user navigation.
These cookies help us understand, through data collected in an anonymous and aggregated form, how users interact with our website, providing information about pages visited, time spent on the site, type of platform used, number of clicks on a specific page, any malfunctions, etc. Statistical cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and transmitting information anonymously.
We use Google Analytics to collect and analyze information about user behavior on the website for statistical purposes without acquiring personal user identification information. The way we use these cookies is similar to technical cookies, so explicit user consent is not required.
We do not use first or third-party profiling cookies.
