In compliance with Measure No. 229 (available here: http://www.garanteprivacy.it/web/guest/home/docweb/-/docweb-display/docweb/3118884) issued by the Garante per la Protezione dei Dati Personali on May 8, 2014, Fondazione Piemonte dal Vino, provides the following information on cookies, their functions and how to disable them if necessary.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that sites you visit send and store on your personal computer or any additional device, including mobile, to be transmitted back to the same sites on your next visit. Cookies are used for a variety of purposes: for example, to remember the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login details, chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc. ) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to visit said site or navigates from one page to another of it; that is, to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site, and may also contain a unique identification code that allows tracking the user’s navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes.
Thus, there are different types of cookies, which can be differentiated by their characteristics and functions:
Browsing or session cookies
These cookies are not stored persistently on the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date, and based on this the browser is able to identify them as such.
They are used to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, they are cookies useful for navigation and to facilitate the user’s access and enjoyment of the site. Technical cookies are essential for example to access one’s profile or the shopping cart section of an ecommerce without having to log in to all sessions. They are also present in fundamental operations such as payment by credit card or by means of other systems.
These are used to collect information, in aggregate, about the number of users of the site and pages viewed (e.g. Google Analytics). Please refer to the relevant policies, which may change periodically and are therefore recommended to be consulted over time, where more detailed information is available, e.g. https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookieusage.
Third-party cookies, belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. These types of cookies typically appear when web pages have content, such as banner ads, from external websites that through tracking activities, monitor user preferences in an effort to serve relevant and personalized ads to each.
The cookies on this site are therefore as follows
Security related to cookies
The types of cookies referred to above may remain on the computer or mobile device used by the user for different periods of time, depending on the function performed by them. Cookies stored on the computer or mobile device cannot be used to retrieve any data from the hard disk, transmit computer viruses, or for purposes other than those described above.
How to change cookie settings
Most browsers are configured to accept, control, or possibly disable cookies through their settings. We remind you, however, that disabling browsing or functional cookies may cause the site to function and/or limit the service we offer.
You can therefore set and manage your cookie preferences at any time by selecting which cookies to allow, block, or delete, in whole or in part, through your browser settings; here is the path you can follow to manage cookies from the main browsers you use:
What is involved in deleting and/or disabling cookies?
Deleting Cookies may result in:
- cached settings would no longer be usable and therefore in case of login you would have to log in again
- the site may be slower as some features would no longer be enabled
- you may have to manually enter some information or preferences each time you visit the site
