Cookies are short text fragments (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (the browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after a few days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to the user’s preferences, by the individual 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 collect information about user behaviour and the use of services. In the remainder of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term “cookies”.
Technical cookies. These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the site and are used to manage the login and access to the site’s restricted functions.
Analysis and performance cookies. These are cookies used to collect and analyse site traffic and usage in an anonymous way. While these cookies do not identify you, they allow us to detect, for example, if you return to the site at different times. They also allow us to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. These cookies can be deactivated without any loss of functionality.
Third party cookies. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on his/her terminal that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site he/she is visiting may reside.
Profiling cookies. These are persistent cookies used to identify (anonymously or otherwise) your preferences and improve your browsing experience.This site uses technical, analytical and performance cookies. It does not use third-party or profiling cookies.
The www.agora21.it website also includes certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google” in the following). Again, 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 analyse anonymously information about the usage behaviour of the www.agora21.it website (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to compile reports for www.agora21.it regarding activities on the site. This website does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) Google’s analytics tool to track or collect personally identifiable 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 a user’s identity. Google may also disclose this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. For more information, please see the link below:https://www.google.it/policies/privacy/partners/ ??You may selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google in your browser. To disable the action of Google Analytics, please refer to the link below:https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until you close your browser or issue a logout command. Other cookies “survive” when you close your browser and are available on subsequent visits. These cookies are called “persistent” and their duration is fixed by the server when they are created. In some cases an expiry date is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
You can decide whether or not to accept cookies by using your browser settings. Please note that the total or partial deactivation of technical cookies may compromise the use of the website functionalities reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is possible even if cookies are completely disabled. Disabling third-party cookies does not affect navigability in any way. The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. Moreover, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for ‘proprietary’ and ‘third-party’ cookies. As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed to their removal.
