INFORMATION ON THE USE OF COOKIES

The website www.whitech.it uses cookies and similar technologies to guarantee the correct functioning of the procedures and to improve the experience of using online applications. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, on how they are used by www.whitech.it and how to manage them.

 

  • Definition

Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser) information to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behavior and use of services. In the following of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies”.

 

  • Types of cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies we can distinguish different categories:

  1. a) Strictly necessary cookies: these are essential cookies for the correct operation of the website www.whitech.it and are used to manage the login and access to the reserved functions of the site. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (closed the browser are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of services accessible by login. The public part of the site www.whitech.it remains normally usable.
  2. b) Analysis and performance cookies: these are cookies used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
  3. c) Profiling cookies: these are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The website www.whitech.it does not use cookies of this type.
  4. d) Third-party cookies: by visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“owners”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made.

 

  • Google Analytics

Customer number 4130014 Privacy / 00360

 

The website www.whitech.it also includes certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Also, in this case, these are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies). Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze anonymous information on the behavior of use of the website www.whitech.it (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports for the operators of www.whitech.it regarding the activities on the websites themselves. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google nor does it attempt to link an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may also communicate this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing on his browser the opt-out component provided by Google.

 

  • Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited. www.whitech.it does not use persistent cookies. However, browsing the pages of the website www.whitech.it, you can interact with websites managed by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.

 

  • Management of cookies

The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser. The total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies. The disabling of “third-party” cookies does not affect the navigability in any way. The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies “owners” and those of “third parties”.

 

OPTIONALITY OF DATA SUPPLY

Apart from that specified for navigation data, the user is free to provide personal data contained in the request forms of the website www.whitech.it or otherwise indicated in contacts with the Office to request the sending of informative material or other communications. Failure to provide such data may make it impossible to obtain what has been requested. For completeness it should be noted that in some cases (not subject to the ordinary management of this site) the Authority can request news and information for the purpose of monitoring the processing of personal data. In these cases the answer is mandatory under penalty of administrative sanction.

 

PROCESSING METHODS

Personal data are processed with automated tools for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected. Specific security measures are observed to prevent data loss, illicit or incorrect use and unauthorized access. www.whitech.it respects the EU Reg. 2016/679 and periodically adjusts the procedures for checking and processing data.
