1.1 Purpose of using cookies
The site uses some cookies to make its services easy to navigate and use the web pages efficiently. The cookies used also allow us to improve the service provided to users, making their use more effective and / or enabling certain features. The pages of the e-learning services use a set of cookies, normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website, indicated in the paragraph "used cookies"; other cookies, on the other hand, could be installed and integrated into the site by a user if he / she inserts, for example, graphic components of a user interface of another program, which has the purpose of facilitating the user in interacting with the program itself (e.g. Youtube, Facebook, etc.)
1.2 Cookies used
The site uses two types of cookies: technical cookies and analytical cookies:
The site uses technical cookies managed directly by the site. More precisely
- Technical session / navigation cookies strictly necessary to allow navigation by the user and in the absence of these cookies, the website may not function properly. The use of session cookies (which are not stored permanently on the user's computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site. The session cookies used on this site avoid the use of other IT techniques that are potentially detrimental to the confidentiality of user navigation and do not allow the acquisition of the user's personal identification data.
- Functional technical cookies used to improve the browsing experience of web pages according to a series of selected criteria. In particular, they are used to keep track of some preferences expressed by the user (e.g. language information)
- Analytical / monitoring cookies used to collect information on the use of the site. Specifically, they are used to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site. The site manager will use this information to perform anonymous statistical analysis in order to improve the use of the site and to make the content more interesting and relevant to the wishes of the user. Analytical / monitoring cookies can be disabled without any consequence on site navigation. To disable them, see the next section "How to disable cookies". Personal data are deleted immediately after the related statistical processing.
- "Anonymized" analytical / monitoring third-party cookies
- Google Analytics, an analysis tool of the company Google, Inc. that allows the University to obtain anonymous and aggregate statistics, useful for optimizing the sites and services offered. The University has activated a technical tool, suggested by the third party, to obtain the masking of the IP address and to allow the anonymization of all users' IP addresses. IP masking or anonymization takes place as soon as the data is received by the Google Analytics collection network, before any storage or processing takes place for the generation of statistics on the use of the web portal. Google Analytics anonymizes the address as soon as this is technically possible in the passage upstream of the network where the data is collected. For more information, see the Google Analytics IP Anonymization section or visit the Security and Privacy Overview page.
Analytical / monitoring cookies can be disabled without any consequence on the navigation of websites: to disable them, see the next section "How to disable cookies".
The site can make use of elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than this site.
1.3 Cookies that may be installed on some pages of the Service
This type of cookie integrates features developed by third parties within the pages of the Site such as icons and preferences expressed in social networks. An example are the "social plugins" for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the host site page. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by "third parties" is governed by the relevant information which please refer to.
