Processed data and processing purposes:
• Browsing data
During normal operation, the computer-based systems and software procedures used to operate the www.twt.it website acquire personal data, which is implicitly transmitted when using internet communication protocols.
This information is not collected to be associated with specific individuals, though by its very nature it could allow the identification of users by means of processing and association with data held by third parties.
This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers employed by users accessing the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the reply from the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters regarding the user’s operating system and computer environment.
This data is only used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the website, to check it operates correctly and is deleted immediately after the processing stage. The data might be used to determine responsibility in case of hypothetical IT offences against the website: apart from this case, data regarding web contacts is currently not stored for more than seven days.
• Data provided voluntarily by the user
The optional, explicit and voluntary submission of personal data in order to access specific services, or to make requests by e-mail, involves the subsequent acquisition by TWT S.p.A. of the sender’s address or of any other personal data that will be processed exclusively in order to answer the request or to provide the service.
Cookies are small texts sent by the user’s browser to the visited website. They allow the website to store information concerning the visit, such as the selected language and other settings. This may be helpful for the user when visiting the same website again and, as a result, it may also improve the usefulness of the site.
There are two types of cookies, as defined by the Provision of the Privacy Guarantor (no. 229 of 8 May 2014):
- Technical Cookies: technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of transmitting an electronic communication or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the subscriber or by the user to provide such service. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator.
They can be divided into browser cookies or session cookies, which ensure normal browsing and use of the website (for example, allowing a purchase to be made or authentication to access reserved areas); cookie analytics, treated as technical cookies when used directly by the website operator to gather information, in an aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse the website according to a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
To install these cookies, prior user content is not required, yet there is an obligation to provide the informative note pursuant to Art. 13 of the previously mentioned Code.
- Profiling Cookies: Profiling cookies are intended to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by users when browsing the Web. Given the considerable invasiveness that such devices may have within the users’ private sphere, European and Italian legislation requires the user to be properly informed concerning their use and to provide valid consent.
TWT exclusively uses technical cookies, therefore leaving out profiling cookies; specifically:
no personal user data is purposefully acquired by the website;
the use of so-called session cookies (which are not permanently stored on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to transmitting session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server), which are necessary to allow the user to browse the website in a secure and efficient manner.
The so-called session cookies used on the TWT website do not resort to other computer techniques that might compromise browsing privacy for users and do not allow the acquisition of the user’s personal identification data.
Most browsers show users how to decide whether to accept or refuse new cookies, how to receive notifications from the browser when a new cookie is received and how to fully disable cookies. Moreover, similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, can be disabled or deleted by changing the settings of the add-on or by visiting the website of its manufacturer. If users set their browser to refuse to accept cookies, the quality of the pages visited may be lower and the browsing experience may be less effective.
