cookie policy


Below we inform you in a transparent manner about the operation on this website (hereinafter "Site") of the c.d. Cookies.

Definition of "cookie" Cookies are small text files sent from the Site to the interested party's terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the Site at the next visit by the same user. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from the user's hard drive or transmit computer viruses or acquire email addresses. Each cookie is unique to the user's web browser. Some of the functions of cookies can be delegated to other technologies. The term "cookies" refers to cookies and all similar technologies.

Purpose of processing and purposes of technical session cookies The cookies used on the Site are used to perform computer authentication or session monitoring and to store specific technical information regarding users who access our servers. In this perspective, some operations on the Site could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in such cases are therefore technically necessary. By way of example, access to restricted areas of the Site and the activities that can be carried out there would be much more complex to carry out and less secure without the presence of cookies that allow the user to be identified and to maintain their identification in the context of the session. Pursuant to Article 122, paragraph 1, of Legislative Decree 30 June 2003 n.196 integrated with amendments with Legislative Decree 10 August 2018 n.101, "technical" cookies can be used even without the consent of the interested party. Among other things, the same European body that brings together all the Privacy Authorities of the various Member States (the so-called "Article 29" Group) now EDPB clarified in Opinion 4/2012 (WP194) entitled "Exemption from consent for the 'use of cookies "which are cookies for which it is not necessary to obtain the user's prior and informed consent: 1) cookies with data compiled by the user (session identifier), for the duration of a session or persistent cookies limited to a few hours in some cases; 2) authentication cookies, used for the purposes of authenticated services, for the duration of a session; 3) user-centric security cookies, used to identify authentication abuses, for a limited persistent duration; 4) session cookies for multimedia players, such as cookies for "flash" readers, for the duration of a session; 5) session cookies for load balancing, for the duration of a session; 6) persistent cookies for the customization of the user interface, for the duration of a session (or a little more); 7) cookies for sharing content through third party social plug-ins, for members of a social network who have logged in. ICE-Agency therefore informs first of all that technical cookies necessary to navigate within the Site are operational on the Site since they allow essential functions such as authentication, validation, management of a browsing session and fraud prevention. For maximum transparency, a series of technical cookies are listed below: - cookies implanted in the user's / contractor's terminal directly (which will not be used for other purposes) such as authentication cookies, cookies for multimedia content such as flash players that do not exceed the duration of the session, etc; - the cookies used to statistically analyze accesses / visits to the site (so-called "analytics" cookies) which exclusively pursue statistical purposes (and not even profiling or marketing) and collect information in aggregate form without the possibility of tracing the identification of the individual user. In these cases, since the current legislation requires that for analytics cookies the interested party is provided with a clear and adequate indication of the simple ways to oppose (opt-out) to their system (including any anonymization mechanisms of the cookies themselves) It is specified that it is possible to change the cookie settings.

Third Party Cookies While browsing the Site, the user may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers on their terminal (so-called "third-party" cookies): this happens because the Site may contain elements such as, for example, images, maps , sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by website managers or servers other than the Site. These cookies can be sent to the user's browser by third-party companies directly from their websites which can be accessed by navigating from the ICE-Agency website. In such cases, ICE-Agenzia is unrelated to the operation of these cookies, the sending of which falls under the responsibility of these third-party companies. In fact, as clarified by the Guarantor for privacy: "The obligation to inform the user about the use of cookies and to acquire their prior consent, if any, rests with the operator of the site that uses them, as the data controller. In the event that a site also allows the transmission of "third party" cookies, the information and the acquisition of consent are normally the responsibility of the third party. It is necessary that the user is adequately informed, albeit with the simplified procedures provided for by law, when you access the site that allows the storage of third-party cookies, or when you access the content provided by third parties and, in any case, before the cookies are downloaded to your terminal ". Precisely for the purposes of the information transparency required of the managers of the "first party site" where "third party cookies" operate, we inform you that the following third party cookies are operational on the Site: Google. The Site uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files that are stored on the interested party's terminal to allow statistical analysis in aggregate form. Google Inc. is the relevant Data Controller.
