The management of the University's institutional website employs a technology called "cookies" together with other tracking tools (such as web beacons). Their use is mainly aimed at investigating how the website is used by users (most used pages, time spent, etc.), improving the website performance, facilitating and enhancing the user experience.
Cookies are small text strings that websites visited by the user send to the computer and any device used to access the Internet (such as smartphones and tablets), where they are stored and then transmitted to the same websites the next time the same user visits.
Cookies can be stored permanently and have a variable duration (the so-called persistent cookies - e.g. in order to automatically access a reserved area, users can choose to have their User-ID and password stored in one of these files), but they can also disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (the so-called session cookies).
Cookies can be installed by the website you are visiting (the so-called first party cookies), but also by other websites (the so-called third-party cookies) and are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users who access a particular site.
The cookies, as indicated by the Guidelines cookies and other tracking tools of the Italian Data Protection Authority, can be classified into two macro-categories:
It is not necessary to obtain the user's consent for the installation of technical cookies. Cookies can be installed directly by the operator of the website or by a different website that installs them through the first one (the so-called "third party" cookies).
Users can obtain more detailed and updated information on the duration, as well as any other relevant information in the privacy policies of the respective third-party providers (through the links provided) or by contacting the Data Controller.
A list of the cookies used is available on the Privacy Preference Centre (SETTINGS button on the cookie banner and/or Cookies Settings link).
The cookies mangement may involve the transfer of data to countries outside the European Union for which there is not a decision of adequacy recognised by the European Commission (Art. 45 of EU Regulation 2016/679). If you provide consent to the use of analytical and/or profiling cookies, you also agree, where necessary, to such transfer.

As already stated, the use of technical cookies and the performance of processing related to them does not require the user's prior consent.
In any case, it remains possible for the latter to prevent the installation of such cookies at any time through the settings of their browser, as indicated later in this policy, knowing that such a choice could, however, complicate, slow down and sometimes block navigation on the website and, more generally, on the Internet.
