WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are made up of portions of code (computer files or partial data) sent by a server to the user’s Internet browser, automatically stored on the user’s computer and automatically sent back to the server at each occurrence or subsequent access to the site. Usually a cookie contains the name of the website from which the cookie originates, the vital duration of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on the user’s device) and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number. At each subsequent visit, the cookies are sent back to the website that originated them (first party cookies) or to another website that recognizes them (third party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise the user’s device and they serve various purposes such as, for example, allowing the user to navigate efficiently between pages, remembering favourite sites and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help to ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to a user and their interests.
HOW DO COOKIES WORK AND HOW DO I DELETE THEM?
The way cookies work, as well as the options for restricting or blocking them, can be adjusted by changing the settings on your internet browser. Most internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically, but you can modify these settings to block cookies or to be notified whenever cookies are sent to your device. There are several ways to manage cookies, so please refer to your browser’s instruction manual or help screen to see how to adjust or change your browser settings. In fact, the user is allowed to modify the default configuration and disable cookies (i.e. block them permanently) by setting the highest level of protection.
Below is the path to follow to manage cookies from the following browsers:
If you use different devices to view and access the Sites (e.g., computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.), you should ensure that each browser on each device is adjusted to reflect your cookie preferences. To delete cookies from your smartphone/tablet’s Internet browser, you should refer to your device’s user manual.
HOW LONG WILL YOUR PERSONAL DATA BE PROCESSED?
What types and categories of cookies does synecom.it use and for what purposes?
These cookies are not stored persistently on the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date, and based on this the browser is able to identify them as such.
pll_language: Technical cookie to store the selected language.
_gat: Part of the Google Analytics tracking and analysis service. This is a cookie that expires 10 minutes after it is created or updated. It is used to block the number of requests from analytics scripts so that user visits are considered unique.
PHPSESSID: A cookie that is native to PHP and allows websites to store session state data. On the website, it is used to establish a user session and communicate status data through a temporary cookie, commonly referred to as a session cookie. As the PHPSESSID cookie has no expiration date, it disappears when the client is closed.
Persistent cookies: instead of disappearing when you close your browser, as is the case with session cookies, persistent cookies expire on a specific date or after a specific period of time. This means that, for the lifetime of the cookie (which can be long or short depending on the expiration date decided by its creators), its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the website, or every time the user views a resource belonging to that site from another site (for example an advertisement). For this reason, persistent cookies may be used by advertisers to record information about a user’s web browsing habits for an extended period of time. However, they are also used for “legitimate” reasons (such as keeping users logged into their accounts on websites in order to avoid having to enter credentials to access websites each time they visit).
