This Cookies Policy refers exclusively to the website ("Website") and should be considered as an integral part of its Privacy Policy. The Data Controller, which is Società Per lo Sviluppo Turisticodel Tigullio S.r.l., C.F. e P.IVA 00753240159, registered office in Milano, Via G. Leopardi n°2, has adopted all the provisions laid down by the recent "Guidelines for cookies and other tools of tracking", issued by the Italian Data Protection Authority on 10 June 2021.

Cookie Policy

Cookies are small pieces of text that are sent from the website and stored by the browser installed on the device you used for browsing. Cookies are then retransmitted to the website during your next visit. Cookies allow you to store information about your visits to the website and constitute very useful technology because they help the website function, making it more efficient. Without cookies, the website would have no way of "remembering" certain information.

Types of Cookies

Cookies can be classified based on:
duration: first-party or third-party cookies;
origin: cookie di prima parte o di terze parti;
purpose: strictly necessary cookies, cookies for performance analysis, and cookies for behavioral advertising.

Cookies that will expire at the end of a browser session (normally when the browser is closed, or the session expires) are defined as session cookies and are useful for example to keep the browsing session active. Session cookies help us collect information on how visitors use the site. This information is used to compile reports and help us improve the site. The cookies collect information anonymously, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors came from, and the pages they visited. Cookies that are stored for a longer period (between one session and the other) are called persistent cookies and are useful, for example, to remember your preferences or propose targeted advertising, or store information such as your name and password to log in.

The definition of first-party or third-party refers to the website or domain that installs the cookie. First-party cookies are installed directly from the website, while third-party cookies are installed from a different domain, for example, if the website incorporates elements from other services such as advertising platforms.

It is appropriate to specify that the purposes usually accomplished by a cookie can also be performed using other comparable technologies, including the use of certain features that allow you to identify the devices to enable an analysis of visits to the website. This privacy policy in fact applies to any technology that stores or accesses the information stored on your device. HTML5 local storage, local shared objects (also called flash cookies), and fingerprinting techniques, for example, could come under this category. From now on, when referring to cookies, this definition shall be understood as also including other comparable technologies.

Cookies Used on this Website

Performance analytics cookies (Performance analytics cookies) are installed to allow the evaluation of the effectiveness of a service, to help measure traffic, to optimize functions of the site, and to collect statistical information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site. The use of analytics cookies is limited only to the production of aggregate statistics. Through their use, the Data Controller cannot reach the direct identification of the interested party. Analytics cookies, as they are used by this site, cannot be direct and unique identifiers. For these reasons, the analytics cookies set by this site can be assimilated to technical cookies and therefore do not require the acquisition of consent.

Behavioral advertising cookies (Targeting cookies and Social Cookies) are used to track navigation on the Site to analyze user behavior for marketing purposes and create a profile in this regard to tastes, habits, and choices. In this way, the Data Controller can transmit targeted advertising messages in relation to interests and in line with the preferences expressed in navigation. Social Cookies are those conveyed by social plugins and can be inserted on web pages in the form of IFrame and offer personalized content allowing the user of a site to interact directly with social networks and/or other external platforms, share an article on your profile of a social network or to interact with people connected to your profile. The Data Controller is unable to exercise control over the use of cookies used by social networks or external portals. We, therefore, invite you to read the individual-specific information. These cookies are not necessary for the functioning of the Site, therefore consent is required for their installation.
