Similarly to cookies, other tracking tools are being developed that make it possible to pursue the same purposes. These tracking tools can be cataloged according to a series of different criteria, however, the main grouping criterion remains that of the purpose for which they are used: of a technical or commercial nature. Among these tools are for example pixels, fingerprinting tools, etc. Cookies can be associated with information that allows the identification of the user that is provided when registering for an online service or during connection, such as the e-mail address when requesting information through the contact form. .

In general, the cookies and other tracking tools used are classified according to the following macro-categories i) technical cookies, which are used to make the site work and ii) profiling cookies, which are used to track user behavior in order to analyze it in a way to offer him services based on his preferences. Below are the related details:
1) Technical cookies that do not require the user’s consent
Technical cookies are used in order to carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network or to provide an IT service explicitly requested by you.
This category includes cookies, which pursue the purposes indicated respectively:
– navigation or session cookies: they are used to guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a reservation or to authenticate to access restricted areas); – anonymized analytics cookies: they are used only to collect information, in aggregate form and therefore not attributable to the individual, relating to the number of users to the most visited pages, to the places from which you connect, etc. in order to compile statistics on the service and use of the site. These cookies can also be from third parties. In this case, however, the owner of the site has made them anonymous (having masked at least the fourth component of the IP address) and the third party refrains from combining analytics cookies with other processing (eg: customer files or statistics of visits to other sites) or from passing them on to other third parties; – functionality cookies: allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language) in order to improve the service provided.

Profiling cookies and other tracking tools allow you to follow and track, using automated tools, the behavior of the user while browsing the internet. They have the purpose of tracing back to specific, identified or identifiable subjects, specific actions or behavioral patterns recurring in the use of the functions offered (patterns) in order to group the different profiles within homogeneous clusters of different size, so that it is possible to the Owner or to third parties, among other things, also modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly personalized way beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as send targeted advertising messages, i.e. in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net. Profiling cookies and other tracking tools with a non-technical function can be:
– first part: installed directly by the Owner on its site. – third party: installed on the site of the owner by a third party. On third-party cookies, the Owner has no control over the activity and purpose of the third party, nor over the possibility that the same changes them over time. In this sense, the Owner acts as an intermediary and in this capacity, please refer to the information of the third party, accessible via the link next to each of the cookies indicated in the appropriate cookies area accessible from the banner or present at the bottom. Non-anonymized analytics cookies used by the third party are also profiling cookies, when the owner of the site has not made them anonymous (not having masked at least the fourth component of the IP address) and the third party combines analytics cookies with other processing ( for example: customer files or statistics of visits to other sites) or transmits them to other third parties. Legal Basis.
