Cookies are small files containing small amount of data which are sent to the users browser when a certain website is visited. Every further use of the same website Cookies are sent again to the website that originally generated them (first party cookies) or to another site that recognizes them (third party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize the user. They have different purposes, for example allowing the navigation through various pages and in general give and permit a better navigation experience. They also guarantee that content shown, such as online advertisements, are in harmony with what the user wants and is interested in.

Nearly all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. Visitors or users have the possibility to easily change this behavior at their own wish. As clearly stated above by wishing not to use cookies during navigation of the website this may lead to a less efficient use and may compromise anything related to authentication. Many cookies are automatically deleted from the computers hard drive at the end of every session (named “session cookie”). There are cookies that however remain on the computers hard drive. These cookies may remain on the computer for few years. By visiting the website for the first time the computer will then be able to recognize every further and next visit to the same website which the customer has already visited, thus providing optimal data used in previous visits (long period cookies). These cookies allow the customer not to waste time by putting in previously filled out passwords or forms that have already been used. Cookies can also be deactivated, choosing certain parameters in the options on the computers browser. We highlight the fact that if this option is chosen the customer will not be able to fully use certain functions of the website.

The present website may use third party cookies that are used in a dynamic and mature way to show online advertisements. The majority of browsers in use allow one to block exclusively third party cookies and only use the website cookies. Even some advertising companies which generate cookies on third party websites provide the possibility to deactivate and/or restrict them easily, even when they are anonymous, without collecting personal information of any kind (for instance, the IP address used by the end user workstation).

Cookies used for analysis of website visits

Sts s.r.l. uses instruments that analyze navigation data that allow a better use of websites: for instance, Google Analytics, a service offered by Google Inc. These services use cookies that are deposited on the user device so that the site manager can profile the website usage. The information generated by the cookies on the use of the websites by the user (including the IP address, recorded by omitting some digits) are then sent and deposited on the Google server. This information is then used to detect how the website is used by the specific user so as to examine the full use of the website, filling out reports on the activity of the website and use of Internet. To protect users, Sts s.r.l. uses a IP masking which hides the last 8 digits of the IP address thus making the used data anonymous. Users that do not wish to accept cookies related to Google Analytics can do so by means of additional browser components (for instance one can deactivate Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout). To activate the component that restricts the information delivery on the use of the Website, just follow the on screen instructions and close and reopen the browser afterwards. By using this website, you allow any data belonging to yourselves to be used by Google for the above stated reasons. For further information on Google Analytics it is possible to refer to the Cookies and Analytics and related privacy policy for Google Analytics.
