Cookies allows the website to recognise your device on each subsequent visit and to store your browsing preferences, giving you a more functional experience of the website, and making the content of the website as personalised as possible.
Cookies that are required for the website to operate properly are allowed to be set without your permission. These cookies are fundamental to enable you to browse around our website and use its features. You may block also these cookies by changing your browser settings, but this may affect how this and most of the other websites functions. In particular, we won’t be able to save your preferences about cookies.
All other cookies need to be approved before they can be set in the browser. These cookies are optional and help us to improve your experience, collect statistics, optimize site functionality, and deliver content tailored to your interests. We won’t store any of these cookies on your device without your prior express consent.
Our website also uses third-party cookies that are managed by Google, LinkedIn and YouTube. All these third-party cookies will forward and store information about your use of the webpage (including your IP address) to countries outside the European Union. These third parties may also transfer your information to other third parties if required by law.
Therefore, when you agree to consent to the use of these cookies, you authorize us to pass collected and maintained personal data to any country, including non-European Union countries, which may not have adequate data protection for the purposes described in this statement.
Cookie used on our website.
We have put our cookies and third-party cookies into five categories:
Necessary cookies are needed for the website to work and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually a consequence of you requesting services such as setting your privacy preferences. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but then some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store any personal data.
Performance cookies allow us to count visits and traffic, which is an important source of improvement of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and to see how visitors move around the site. All the information that these cookies collect is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies your visit to our site will not be counted in our statistics and will not contribute to performance monitoring and improvement of the website.
Functional cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not work properly. Third-party providers may process your information, including personal data, when these cookies are activated.
Not used on this website. Targeting cookies may be set through our site by our advertising. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They are based on uniquely identifying your browser type and the type of internet device you use. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Social media cookies.
Social media cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
For more information regarding which cookies we use, please see our detailed cookie list (below).
Further details about Google Analytics To monitor and improve the performance of this website, we use Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, which processes your data on our behalf. This entails the transfer of such data to subsidiaries of Google in the United States of America (‘US’), a country whose law does not guarantee a level of protection of personal data equivalent to the European Economic Area. In this regard, we inform you that:
• the transfer is regulated according to the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses; and
• as resulted and documented in our Transfer Impact Assessment (TIA), such Clauses we adopted represent an adequate safeguard in relation to the transfer to US.
Besides the processing of data performed on behalf of us, Google can also use the data for its own purposes accordingly to its policy: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?gl=en&hl=en and under its own responsibility
To further reduce the privacy-related risk concerning this service, we have adopted additional measures to protect the information collected, which include reducing the identifiability of collected data (e.g., truncated IP addresses).
If you use Chrome and you want to prevent the use of your data for measuring Google Analytics, you can download and install the opt-out feature available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout In addition, be aware that the ability of Google to re-identify you and combine this information with other data they may hold about you significantly increases if you are logged into your Google account when visiting this website.
