Cookie Policy

1) WHAT ARE COOKIES

Cookies are short strings of text that the websites we visit transmit and save on our computer. They contain information which, when we reconnect to a site already visited, allows for more effective and pleasant navigation, given that they memorize the visitor's preferences and tastes. Data storage occurs in an absolutely anonymous manner, i.e. there is no connection between the stored data (e.g.: IP address, browser and/or OS used, website pages visited) and users' personal data.

2) TYPES OF COOKIES

There is a large variety of cookies. To catalog them in a reasonable way we identify three attribute types: duration (life cycle), origin and purpose.

 

The first type includes:

SESSION COOKIES: these cookies are not stored permanently on the user's device and are deleted when the browser is closed. 

PERSISTENT COOKIES: Instead of disappearing when you close your browser, persistent cookies expire after a certain period of time. This means that, for the entire lifespan of the cookie, its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the same site. For this reason, persistent cookies can be used by advertisers to record information about a user's web browsing habits over an extended period of time. They are also used to make browsing more "convenient" for the user (for example, they are used to keep users registered in their account on websites, in order to avoid having to enter login credentials at each visit). to websites).

 

Of the second type they are:​

FIRST PARTY COOKIES: these are those sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting. They can be either persistent or session; they are managed directly by the owner and/or manager of the site and are used, for example, to guarantee its technical functioning or keep track of preferences expressed regarding the use of the site itself.

THIRD PARTY COOKIES: belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. These types of cookies generally appear when web pages have advertising banners or links to external websites. Most modern web browsers contain privacy settings that can block third-party cookies

The third typology includes:

TECHNICAL COOKIES: they are used for navigation and to facilitate access and use of the site by the user. Technical cookies are essential for example to access Google or Facebook without having to log in to all sessions.  In terms of Privacy (GDPR 2018), for the user who visits the site it is sufficient to be made aware of their use, without the need for "consent".

STATISTICAL COOKIES (ANALITYCS): they are used for the purpose of optimizing the site, directly by the owner of the site itself, who may collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site, but in a completely anonymous way. If this last condition is satisfied, in terms of Privacy (GDPR 2018), what has already been stated for technical cookies applies: just inform the visitor that the site uses them

PREFERENCES STORAGE COOKIES: these are cookies useful for promoting correct use of the site by the user. They are used, for example, to keep track of the chosen language.

ADVERTISING COOKIES: These cookies are intended to provide advertising spaces. They can be installed by the site owner or by third parties. Some are used to recognize individual advertising messages and know which ones have been selected and when. Other advertising cookies are used to hypothesize a user's browsing "profile", so as to be able to propose advertising messages in line with their behavior and interests on the internet. This "profile" is anonymous and this type of cookie also does not allow us to trace the user's identity. In this case, however, the cookie is the basis of the systems for piloting the so-called "behavioral advertising".

SOCIAL NETWORK COOKIES: they allow you to share the contents of the site you are visiting with other users. These are the cookies typically used to activate the "Like" or "Follow" functions of Social Networks. These functions allow social networks to identify their users and collect information even while they browse other sites.

3) WHICH COOKIES DOES THE ENGINEERING PROJECT CONSULTANT SITE USE

Our site uses the following types of cookies:

TECHNICAL COOKIES and STATISTICAL COOKIES: both of these types do not require consent in accordance with current legislation. The user is made aware of their use through a specific notice (e.g. a banner) before accessing the pages of the website.
