To make your visit of our Website more convenient, we use cookies for the presentation of our product assortment. Cookies are small text aggregates recorded locally in the temporary memory of your browser, and hence in your computer, for periods of time that may vary according to the need, generally between a few hours and some years, with the exception of the profiling cookies, whose maximum duration is 365 calendar days.
Using the cookies, it is possible semi-permanently to record information about your preferences and other technical data that allow for easier browsing and greater ease of use and effectiveness of the site itself. For example, cookies can be used to determine whether a connection between your computer and our sites has already been carried out, to highlight changes or maintain log-in information. For your protection, only the cookie stored on your computer is identified.

A. TYPES OF COOKIES


This site or product can use four different types of cookies:

1. Essential technical cookies

These cookies are necessary for the correct operation of the site. They allow users to browse through the pages, to share our contents, to store your access credentials to make entry into the site faster and to keep your preferences and credentials active while browsing. Without these cookies we could not perform the services for which users access the website.

This category includes the essential cookies for the operation of the website or of the product, such as the technical cookies for access to the website or for communication between the parties and the services that comprise it. This category also includes cookies of third parties’ products supplemented by RCS Mediagroup for the execution of a specific functionality. In detail:

  1. Google DFP limited to the provision of non-profiled advertising https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
  2. ...

2. Essential technical cookies for statistics and performance analysis

These cookies enable us to know in what way visitors use the website and thus be able to assess and improve the operation and promote the production of contents that better meet our user’s information needs. For example, they allow us to know which pages are the most and least visited. They take into account, inter alia, the number of visitors, the time spent on the website by users on average and the manner in which the users are arrived. In this way, we can know what works well and what we need to improve and we can ensure that the pages are loaded quickly and are displayed correctly. All the information gathered by these cookies is anonymous and unconnected to the user’s personal data. To carry out these functions in our websites, we use the services of third parties that anonymise the data making them impossible to connect to single individuals (“single-in”). When services that are not fully anonymised are provided, you will find them listed among the third party cookies for which consent can be denied, to guarantee your privacy.

This category includes duly anonymised analytical cookies. This website, in particular, uses the following products:

  1. Nielsen NetRatings (Audiweb) for official access statistics
  2. Adobe Omniture for internal access and traffic statistics
  3. Chartbeat for instantaneous access and traffic statistics for internal use
  4. ...

3. Cookies for user profiling directed at advertisement targeting, for the performance of external features integrated in the website

These cookies allow us to offer notices about the user and the respective interests. They are also used to limit the number of visualisations of a same advertisement and to assess the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.

They are inserted by RCS Mediagroup by means of partner technical platforms of our advertising circuit and they contribute to our investment in the Websites, enabling us adequately to finance the maintenance of the services and their technological evolution. They can also be utilised to show the user pertinent ads on other visited Websites.

These cookies are integrated in the pages and in the products by RCS Mediagroup which, in compliance with current regulations, offers in this Disclosure the instruments to exercising the right to selective objection to their use.

Specifically, RCS Mediagroup uses

  1. Salesforce KRUX (Data Management Platform) for profiling the users of the products and services, directed at the definition of the digital strategies, of the performance of profiled advertising campaigns and of the analysis of the audience marketing
  2. Unidad Editorial DMP (Data Management Platform) for profiling the users of the products and services, directed at the definition of the digital strategies, of the performance of profiled advertising campaigns and of the analysis of the audience marketing
  3. Google DFP and its aggregate platforms (LIST OF PARTIES MANAGED BY GOOGLE) limited to the delivery of profiled advertising
  4. Facebook limited to the features of social log-in, “like” and sharing RCS contents on the Facebook social network [OPT-IN/OPT-OUT] [DISCLOSURE LINK] [PRIVACY POLICY LINK] Facebook limited to the features of social log-in, “like” and sharing RCS contents on the Facebook social network [OPT-IN/OPT-OUT] [DISCLOSURE LINK] [PRIVACY POLICY LINK]
  5. Twitter limited to the features of social log-in and sharing RCS contents on the Twitter social network [OPT-IN/OPT-OUT] [DISCLOSURE LINK] [PRIVACY POLICY LINK]
  6. ...

4. Functional and third party profiling cookies

This category includes both cookies provided by parties that are partnered with RCS Mediagroup S.p.A. and known to it, and cookies provided by third parties that are not directly controlled or controllable by RCS.

The cookies that come from our partners enable us to offer advanced features, as well as additional information and personal functions. This includes the possibility of sharing contents through the social networks, of accessing video streaming services and the CDNs on which we host our contents. These services are mainly performed by external operators engaged or knowingly integrated by RCS Mediagroup. If a user has an account or uses other parties’ services on other Websites, the other parties may be able to know that the user has visited our own sites. Use of the data gathered by these external operators through cookies is subject to the respective privacy policies and therefore these cookies are identified with the names of the respective parties set out in the cookie management instrument available in the dedicated section of this Disclosure. These include the cookies recorded by the main social networks, which allow you to share our websites’ articles and to publicly show that you like our work.

Cookies that do not come from RCS Mediagroup partners are cookies delivered without the control of RCS Mediagroup, by third parties that are able to intercept the user during his/her browsing also outside the RCS websites. These cookies, which are typically profiling cookies, are not directly controllable by RCS which therefore cannot provide guarantees with regard to the way third party controllers use the information gathered. Opposition to the use of these cookies, therefore, can either take place through external instruments or through your direct action on your browser preferences. For details, please refer to “COOKIE MANAGEMENT” section.


B. COOKIE MANAGEMENT


If you have any doubts or concerns with regard to the use of the cookies, you can always intervene to prevent them from being set up and read, for example changing the privacy settings in your browser to block certain types of cookies or using the web instrument that RCS makes available to you in this Disclosure.

Since browsers - and oftentimes even different versions of the same browser - differ even markedly from each other, if you prefer to act on your own using your browser preference, you can find detailed information about the necessary procedure in your browser guide. For an overview of the procedures for the most common browsers, please visit

http://www.cookiepedia.co.uk/index.php?title=How_to_Manage_Cookies

Advertising companies also allow users to opt out of receiving targeted ads, if they so desire. This does not prevent cookies from being set up, but it does interrupt the utilisation and collection of some data by these companies.

For additional information and the possibility to opt out, please visit http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/it/

To simplify your decisions and in compliance with current regulations, RCS provides you with a management tool for the selective activation and deactivation of any cookies you do not like among those controlled or controllable by RCS.

In the instrument you will find, listed in categories, all the cookies we manage or knowingly host.

If you do not accept the cookies by leaving the site, any cookies already recorded locally in your browser will remain recorded therein but will no longer be read or used by RCS until you indicate your acceptance of the Policy. You can always remove these cookies at any time with the procedures explained in the websites mentioned in “Cookie management” or using the tool made available by RCS.

E. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT


You can exercise your right to object to the use of all cookies by leaving this site, thereby also refusing use of the essential technical cookies that are necessary for its operation.
