TYPES OF COOKIES AND THEIR NEED
Cookies can be:
- Technical: to make navigation faster and save the contents of an online store shopping cart, or a selected site language or to simplify payment transactions via home banking;
- Profiling: these monitor users while browsing. They record information about what you buy, or want to buy, analyse your reading and preferences. This gives information to customise advertising which is sent to you according to your tastes, choices, preferences and lifestyle. Has it ever occurred to you why, after you have Googled information about your next trip, you find promotional offers on that trip in your Facebook? That is because of profiling cookies.
- Third-party: sometimes a web page has cookies from other sites, which are contained in other elements (such as the Facebook share button, or a YouTube video on a web page). These cookies can be read by others and are used for profiling purposes.
This site uses technical and third-party cookies, but no profiling cookies.
2. Monitoring of site navigation data
We want to offer a better daily service and for this we use Google Analytics to understand how many people are surfing the site, how they do it and what are the topics they prefer to read.
Google Analytics is a free service offered by Google: this site is set up to make your IP address anonymous. The collected data is stored on Google servers, which might decide to give them to third parties.
If “you do not want to be seen” among the site visitors, even anonymously, you can make yourself invisible by downloading this Google Analytics add-on.
3. Social Networks
At the end of each post, we use buttons that give the ability to share what you’ve just read on Facebook or Twitter. These buttons, contain cookies and for this reason are called third-party cookies. Third parties, in this case, is Facebook and Twitter and we do not know what they will do with the information that the button gives them. They could use this information for retargeting, which is why you might see advertising content that you just searched, or shared on Facebook.
To send you the newsletter we use Mailchimp. If you are already registered, you know that we never send any type of advertising.
