Cookie Policy

As required by Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and by data protection legislation in general, the user (hereinafter also the “Data Subject”) is provided with information regarding the use of cookies

 

The site gigroupholding.com (hereinafter the “Site“) uses cookies. The data collected using cookies are processed by Gi Group Holding S.r.l. (“Company“) based in Piazza IV Novembre 5, 20124 Milan, in the person of the Legal Representative (telephone number +3902444111, e-mail address it.privacy@gigroup.com).

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) can be contacted at piazza IV Novembre n. 5, 20124 Milan, to the attention of the Data Protection Officer, and at the e-mail dpo@gigroup.com .

The site processes navigation data. By way of example, this category of data includes: the IP addresses or the names of the computers used by users who connect to the Site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of requests, the method used when submitting requests to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response provided by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment.

Cookies are small text strings. They are created by a server and stored on the hard disk of the computer or on any other device used by the user to access a website (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and then be re-transmitted to the site at the next visit by the user. Cookies allow, for example, to activate features and customizations aimed at facilitating user interaction with a website, keeping track of the items in a shopping cart or information for filling in a computer form.

With regard to duration, cookies can be classified as session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration. Persistent cookies they are stored permanently on your computer or other device user and have a variable duration. Cookies that expire at the end of a session (normally when a user closes their browser) are useful, for example, for security purposes, such as when the user accesses their e-mail box or a reserved area of a site. Instead, cookies that are stored for a longer period (between one session and another) are used, for example, to remember user preferences (such as the navigation language on the site) or to offer targeted advertising.

With reference to the origin, cookies can be classified as first-party cookies or third-party cookies. First -party cookies are installed directly from the website the user is visiting, while third-party cookies they are installed by a domain other than the one the user is visiting, for example, if the website incorporates elements from other sites, such as images or social media plugins.
