- “Profiling” and/or customisation instruments
Uniform does not perform any promotional and/or advertising communication activity without prior consent expressed by the user.
The Site uses “Cookies”: cookies are short text files (letters and/or digits) that allow the web server to store on the client (the user’s internet browser) information to be reused during the website visit (session cookies) or later, even after several days (persistent cookies). The cookies are stored based on the user’s preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Cookies do not collect information directly identifying the user. In fact Uniform may not through the cookies trace any personal information directly identifying (e.g. name and surname) unless directly provided by the user. Furthermore, another website cannot use a cookie issued by the Site to access other information contained in the user’s computer. After saving in the computer, the cookie may only be read by the website that has created it (hence, in our case, by this Site).
What type of cookies are used by the Site:
These cookies are indispensable for proper operation of sites and may be session ones (temporary) or persistent (with duration defined based on the site’s use requirements).
The duration of session cookies is strictly limited to the period of website browsing (after closing the browser these cookies are deleted).
The Website uses technical cookies to aid the user’s browsing within the Site, for instance remembering the data provided by the user in filling in forms on the Site (so-called user input cookies), to recognise the user after they have logged in the Site (so-called authentication cookies), to customise the site’s interface on the basis of the preferences indicated by the user, to correctly display videos and images (flash cookies).
Some of the technical cookies are also persistent (for instance to manage login and access to the site’s restricted functions). These cookies may last longer (expiry up to 30 days) and are used to recognise, for this limited period,the visitor’s computer (in order, for instance, to make their access to the restricted area easier). Disabling them affects the use of services accessible in the restricted area. The public part of the website remains however accessible.
Technical cookies do not require acquisition of a preventative and explicit consent by the user since they are strictly necessary to provide the service required by the Site user (pursuant to art. 122, sub-paragraph 1, of the Code).
These are persistent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences, improve their browsing experience, even providing variable content, related to their browsing experience on line. This site does not use profiling cookies.
No other user profiling tools are used in this Site (e.g. spyware).
Furthermore if the user should register on the Site and provide when registering their specific consent to monitoring their browsing, the browsing data within the Site may be associated with their personal data.
