A cookie is a short text sent to your browser from a visited website. Allows the site to store information about your visit, such as your preferred language and other settings. This can facilitate your next visit and increase the usefulness of the site in your favor. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the Web would be a much more frustrating experience. Cookies, as defined by the Privacy Guarantor’s Measure (No. May 8, 2014), can be of two types:

1) Technical cookies: technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of transmitting electronic communication, or to the extent strictly necessary to the provider of a service of the information company explicitly requested subscriber or user to provide this service. They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or website manager.
They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); cookie analytics, assimilated to technical cookies where used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate, about the number of users and how they visit the site itself; feature cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same. For the installation of such cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required, while the obligation to give the information under art remains firm. 13 of the Code.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

2) Profiling cookies: Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user-related profiles and are used in order to send advertisements in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of network browsing. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have within the privacy of users, European and Italian law requires that the user should be adequately informed about the use of them and thus express his or her valid consent.

How COALA use cookies:

COALA makes use only of Technical Cookies excluding, therefore, the use of those of Profiling; Specifically:

  • No personal user data is acquired by the site.
  • Cookies are not used for the transmission of personal information, nor are c.d. persistent cookies of any kind, that is, systems for tracking users.
  • The use of c.d. Session cookies (which are not stored persistently on the user’s computer and vanish with browser closure) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) to enable safe and efficient site navigation.
  • The use of c.d. Session cookies used on the COALAwebsite avoid other computer techniques that may be detrimental to the confidentiality of users’ browsing and do not allow the acquisition of personal identifying data of the user.

In order to know how our visitors use the site we use the services offered by Google and Google Analitycs to collect, aggregate and analyze the data in order to better understand how the Site is used. These cookies only collect anonymous data and have a limited duration. The information collected is used, for example, to monitor and analyze the use of the site, improve its functionality and more accurately choose the content and the graphic, in order to respond to the needs of visitors. In any case, if for whatever reason you prefer that these specific cookies were not activated, Google provides a free add-on for the installable opt-out on the main browsers. Not accepting such cookies may compromise some features of the site.

Profiling cookies

These are cookies used to send advertisements in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of network browsing. They can be delivered from our servers or through our website by third parties. Companies that offer or advertise their products through this site may assign cookies to users’ terminals. The categories of cookies used and the type of personal data processing by these companies are regulated in accordance with the information made by these companies.

Ways to deny consent and delete cookies

Most browsers indicate, even through the “help” menu, how to decide whether or not to accept new cookies, how to make sure that the browser warns when you receive a new cookie and how to be able to disable cookies altogether. In addition, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the settings of the add-on or by visiting the website of its manufacturer.
If the user sets their browser by refusing to accept cookies the quality of the pages visited may be reduced and the browsing experience may be less effective.
The delivery of all cookies, both first and third-party, is therefore disabled by intervening on the settings of the browser in use; It is worth noting, however, that this could render sites unusable if you block cookies that are essential for the delivery of features. Each browser has different settings for disabling cookies; below we propose links to the most common browser instructions.

– Google Chrome

– Apple Safari

– Mozilla Firefox

– Opera
