Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy contains important information on the different types of cookies that may be installed on devices when users visit the www.cogenerationchannel.com website. Pursuant to EU Regulation 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation, hereinafter referred to as “GDPR”) and to applicable national legislation on the protection of personal data, cookies constitute personal data when they can be associated with a device and, therefore, to an identifiable person.

What are Cookies

Cookies are small text files that visited websites send to the user’s terminal (PCs, tablets, smartphones, notebooks), which are stored, to then be retransmitted to the same websites the next time the same user visits them. Several types of cookies exist, which contain different information (e.g. authentication of computer related information, session monitoring, storing of preferences to send advertising messages, etc.). 
Each cookie, in turn, contains different data (e.g. the name of the source server, a numeric identifier, etc.). Such data may be retained on the user’s device for different periods of time, such as for the duration of the browser session, for several hours, for several days or for longer periods.

Cookies are used for computer authentication, session monitoring and for storing information on websites. While browsing a website, the user may also receive on their terminal cookies that are sent by different websites or servers with respect to the current one (so-called “third party cookies”), on which certain elements may reside (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages from other domains) present on the website that the same user is visiting. 

The Website uses TECHNICAL Cookies. These cookies ensure the user a more responsive use of the Website and an easier retrieval of data, simplifying the connection and transmission of data between the user and the Website. They serve to facilitate the browsing of the Website or to provide a service requested by the user. Such cookies are not used for other purposes. Technical cookies are required for the correct and proper functioning of the Website. Without these cookies, certain operations may not be otherwise carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure. Technical cookies are, therefore, essential. Technical cookies do not require the user’s consent as they are necessary for the correct and proper functioning of the Website. In particular, we use temporary and permanent navigation or session cookies that guarantee the normal browsing and use of the Website, making it possible, for example, to save information relating to the browsing, to store data in order to maintain the browsing session active and/or to save information about full screen on/off settings during the browsing of the Website. 

THIRD PARTY ANALYTICS Cookies

We also use analytics cookies (Google Analytics) to collect information on the use of the Website. Similar to technical cookies, these cookies are treated in aggregate form to monitor areas that are most visited on the Website, to improve the content of the Website, to facilitate ease of use by the user and to monitor the correct and proper functioning of the Website.

The analytics cookies used are configured by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This takes place because each visited website may include elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages in other domains, etc.) that reside on a different server than the servers associated with the visited website. 
We allow third parties to use analytics cookies on the Website in order to save preparatory information, in anonymous form, for creating reports relating to the navigation of our Website.

If the user does not want their data to be used by Google Analytics, he/she may install the browser add-in as described by Google at the following link: 
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881?hl=it
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Installing this add-in prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js and dc.js) running on a website to share information with Google Analytics on the specific activities carried out by a user when visiting the Website.

Some of the services listed below collect aggregate statistical data and may not require the explicit consent of the User or may be managed directly by the Website Owner – as described – without the use of third party tools.

In the event that the tools listed below include services operated by third parties, these could – in addition to what has been specified and even without the knowledge of the website Owner – include user tracking activities. For detailed information, please consult the specific Privacy Policy of the listed services.
