Full User Cookie Notice

 

When you visit or interact with our sites, Google or our service providers (advertising) may use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies for advertising purposes and for storing information in order to provide you with a better, faster and safer experience.

Technologies used in this site

Google Universal Analitycs, Google AdSense (network partners), Google DFP small business (not AdSense partners too).

What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies?

Cookie: we too use cookies like most of the sites, that is small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) placed in the memory of your browser or device to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our sites. Cookies allow a website to recognize a particular device or browser.
There are several types of cookies:

- Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session and allow us to link your actions during that particular browser session.

- Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple sites.

- First-party cookies are set by the site you are visiting.

- Third-party cookies are set by a third party site separate from the site you are visiting.

Cookies can be disabled or removed by tools that are available in most commercial browsers. The preferences for each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options.

Web beacon: small graphic images, also known as "pixel tags" or "clear GIFs", that may be included on our sites, services, applications, messaging, and tools, that typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and user behavior.

Similar technologies: they store information in your browser or device utilising local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies can operate across all of your browsers, and in some instances may not be fully managed by your browser and may require management directly through your installed applications or device. We do not use these technologies for storing information to target advertising to you on or off our sites.

What is online behavioural advertising?

Online behavioural advertising is a way of using information about your web browsing activity to group you with other users into interest groups and serve you advertisements based upon these interests. Behavioural advertising differs from other forms of advertising on the internet such as contextual advertising, which is provided in response to your current, session-based activities (including search queries or websites visited). Relevant ads can also be delivered based upon the website content you have just been viewing. This is known as retargeting.

Does disallowing behavioural targeting prevent me from receiving spam, pop-ups or junk mail?
No. Declining behavioural advertising only means that you will not receive more display advertising customised in this way. It does not affect or disallow any particular type of advertising e.g. email or pop-ups.

How to avoid these technologies

The easiest way is to use the incognito browsing that each browser offers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Apple Safari), or delete cookies periodically.

Another way is to enable app like AdBlock (but remember that many websites, like ours, live thanks to advertising that enables to pay the operating costs).

To be logoed to a network like Google, Facebook, ... limits or cancels the option of avoiding tracking technologies.
