Cookie Policy

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their terminals (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at each subsequent visit via the same terminal.

Furthermore, each site can allow the transmission of the cds. “third-party” cookies, ie those generated by internet sites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects present in it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains).

Depending on their duration, they are distinguished in session cookies (ie those temporary and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser) and persistent cookies (ie those that remain stored on the terminal until their expiration or cancellation by the user).

Cookies have different purposes. They are primarily used for the transmission of communication or to provide the service requested by the user; more precisely, they allow to enable and optimize the operation of the website, perform IT authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the browsing experience of users, for example by keeping active the connection to restricted areas while browsing through the pages of the site without the need to re-enter User-Id and password and storing specific information about the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used). The aforementioned cookies are called “technical” (for their use the user’s consent is not required), as without them some of the above operations could not be completed or would be more complex and / or less secure.

Otherwise, if cookies are used for further purposes, typically for behavioral analysis and sending personalized promo-advertising messages (so-called “profiling” cookies) or even just for obtaining, through third-party services, information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site (so-called “analytics cookies”), the user’s consent is required. In fact, before sending these cookies on the terminal, in accordance with current legislation (Privacy Code and general provision of the Guarantor of 8 May 2014), when you access the home page or other page of the site, it is immediately shown in the foreground a banner with an initial brief information on the use of cookies and on the collection of consent, which the user can lend by continuing the navigation by selecting an element under the banner or by closing the banner itself. In any case, cookies can be read or modified only by the website that generated them; they can not be used to retrieve any data from the user’s terminal and can not transmit computer viruses. Some of the functions of cookies can also be performed by other technologies; therefore, in the context of this web privacy policy, the term “cookies” refers to cookies and all similar technologies. This site may use session cookies and persistent cookies.

The types of cookies directly generated by this site are:

“Technical” cookies, used for:

  • the authentication and management of a browsing session (for example, to identify and validate the user for access to the Reserved Area);
  • security purposes (eg to take into account the number of failed login identifying possible abuse in authentication and preventing fraud);
  • user interface customization (eg to record user preferences such as language, currency, page display format, connection area);
  • a better usability of the site and its audio-visual contents (eg through the execution of flash player programs);
  • the correct functioning of the connection (eg by routing the user’s requests in more than one server).

“Third Part” cookies: this Website also allows the transmission to the user’s terminal of third-party cookies, with which Exhibit Around collaborates. Exhibit Around limits itself, as a technical intermediary, to send these cookies, but does not manage their operations (it does not therefore have control and access to the information provided / acquired) as their functioning is the responsibility of the third parties. For these cookies, you can access the information and forms of acquisition of consent of third parties, by clicking on the links below.

The third parts are:

a) subjects whose services Exhibit Around makes use of to collect aggregate / statistical information about the users who visit this Site. In fact, the service provided by the company Google Inc. is used.

b) “technical” cookies, used for the authentication and management of a browsing session (for example, to identify and validate the user for access to the Reserved Area); In fact, the WordPress service provided by the WordPress Foundation is used.

c) Facebook Analytics, Advertising, & Social Features. We use Facebook technologies to customize content and advertising, to provide social media features, and to analyze traffic to our website.

Management of cookie choices

Cookies can be managed by the user through their browser. The user can manage their cookie preferences through the functionalities present in the common browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Crome, Apple Safari), which allow to delete / remove cookies (all or some) or to change the settings the browser itself to block the sending of cookies or to limit it to specific sites (compared to others). It is possible to know how to configure the browser settings (normally accessible from the “Tools” bar) by going to the “Support” web pages of the suppliers of the aforementioned browsers (also identifiable through a common search engine). Disabling cookies does not in itself preclude the use of the services of the Website; however, if all cookies are deleted / blocked, including technical cookies, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and / or less secure, for example, for the execution of activities within the Restricted Areas of the Site (i cookies allow in fact to maintain and maintain the identification of the user within the session).
