Through this page we intend to provide you with more information on the technologies you adopt and how they are used on our sites and our services, apps, and tools. Below is a summary of some important aspects to know about using these technologies and the full text of the User Information Bulletin.
Our cookies and similar technologies have different functions. They are useful in ensuring the operation of our services, allowing us to improve performance, provide additional functionality, or allow us to offer targeted advertising or in line with your interests. We use similar cookies and technologies that remain on your device only for the browser activity (session cookies) or for a longer period of time (persistent cookies). You can lock them, delete them, or disable them if your device allows. You can manage cookies and cookie preferences in your device or browser settings.
Where possible, security measures are implemented to prevent unauthorized access to cookies and similar technologies. A unique code ensures that only us and / or our authorized service providers can access cookie data.
Service Providers are companies that support us in various aspects of our business, dealing, for example, with operations, services, apps, advertisements, and site tools. We use our authorized service providers to present you in line with your interests about our services and other Internet pages. These service providers may insert cookies into your device through our services (third-party cookies). They can also capture information that allows them to identify your device, such as your IP address or other unique device or device codes.
What are cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies
Like most sites, we use small data files that are saved on your computer, tablet, mobile phone or other mobile device (generally referred to as "device") to record certain data whenever you log in or interact with our sites, services, apps, messaging systems, and tools.
Specific names and types of cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies can change over time. To help you better understand the rules and use of these technologies, here are some terms and their definitions:
Cookies: Small text files (typically formats from letters and numbers) that are saved in browser or device memory when visiting a site or displaying a message. Cookies allow a site to recognize a particular device or browser. There are several types of cookies:
Session cookies expire at the end of the browser session and allow you to link your actions during that specific session.
Permanent cookies remain stored on your device even after the end of your browser session and allow you to remember your preferences or actions on multiple sites.
Owners cookies are set up from the site you are visiting.
Third-party cookies are set up by a third-party site other than the site you are visiting.
Cookies can be disabled or removed using the tools available in most browsers. Cookie preferences must be set separately for each browser you use, as each of them offers specific features and options.
Web beacons: Small images, also known as "pixel tags" or "transparent GIFs", which we can include in our sites, services, apps, messages, and tools. They generally work with cookies to identify our users and their activities.
Similar technologies: technologies that store data in your browser or device using locally-shared or localized storage objects such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies work in all browsers. In some cases, the use of local storage can not be fully managed by browsers, but requires management through specific tools. We do not use these technologies to store useful information to create targeted advertisements on our sites or on other sites.
The terms "cookies" and "similar technologies" may be used indiscriminately in these rules with reference to all the technologies used to store data in the user's browser or device or data collection technologies or to identify the user in the manner described above.
Certain features, services, apps, and site tools are available only through the use of these technologies. You will always be blocked, deleted, or disabled if your browser, installed app, or device used allow it. However, if you reject cookies or other similar technologies, you may not be able to exploit certain features, services, apps, or site tools. The site may require you to re-enter the password multiple times during the same session. For more information about how to block, delete, or disable these technologies, see your device or browser settings.
In general, these technologies allow our sites, services, apps, and tools to keep important information in your browser or device and then use them later to identify you on our servers or internal systems. Where applicable, we protect cookies and other similar technologies to ensure that only us and / or our authorized service providers can interpret them by assigning them a unique code. Your personal data is not stored in cookies or other similar technologies used.
All personal information acquired and archived through the use of these technologies is only obtained after having notified you and requesting your consent. We get your consent by clearly informing you of the use of technologies and giving you the opportunity to turn them off as mentioned above.
The uses of these technologies fall into the following general categories:
Use of advertising or personalization of content. We may use proprietary cookies and web beacons or other third parties to propose content, including ads relevant to the user's interests, our sites, or third-party sites. This includes the use of technologies to better evaluate the utility of advertisements and content presented to the user, such as monitoring whether or not it has selected an advertisement.
If you want to reject all other types of technologies used on our sites, services, apps, or tools, you can do so by blocking, deleting, or deactivating them as your device or browser allows.
