Cookies are short pieces of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

In the following document, we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply using the term “cookies.”

Types of Cookies
Based on the characteristics and use of cookies, we can distinguish various categories:

Strictly Necessary Cookies: These are essential for the proper functioning of the MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS website and are used to manage some preferences such as the language of the site. The duration of these cookies is strictly limited to the work session (closed when the browser is closed) or longer (with a 30-day expiration) to recognize the visitor’s computer during that limited period through an alphanumeric code generated at the first access session, in order to offer the user the result of the test performed.

Analysis and Performance Cookies: These cookies are used to collect and analyze traffic and usage of the site anonymously. While not identifying the user, these cookies allow, for example, the detection of whether the same user connects at different times. They also allow monitoring the system and improving its performance and usability. Disabling these cookies can be done without any loss of functionality.

Profiling Cookies: These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously and not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS website does not use cookies of this type.

Third-Party Cookies
When visiting a website, you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“owners”) and sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). An example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by these sites and integrated into the hosting site’s page. The most common use of social plugins is for sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by their respective information, to which reference is made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the different information and cookie management methods are provided below.

The MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS website also includes some components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). In this case, these are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the hosting site (performance cookies). Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze information about the usage behavior of the MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS website. This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it to compile reports for MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS operators regarding activities on their websites. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) Google’s analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google nor does it attempt to connect an IP address with a user’s identity. Google may also disclose this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on behalf of Google.

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” the closure of the browser and are also available in subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent, and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases, an expiration date is set; in other cases, the duration is unlimited. MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS, with the exception of cookies for which information is stored exclusively for technical purposes, does not use persistent cookies. However, by browsing the pages of the MARITIME & CORPORATE AFFAIRS website, you can interact with third-party-managed sites that may create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.

Cookie Management
The user can decide whether to accept cookies using the settings of their browser. Note: The total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of features reserved for registered users on the site. On the contrary, the use of public content is possible even by completely disabling cookies. The setting can be defined specifically for different sites and web applications. Moreover, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third-party” cookies. For example, in Firefox, through the Tools->Options -> Privacy menu, you can access a control panel where you can define whether to accept or reject different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
