  1. Cookies Policy


What and why they are collected

A “cookie” is a small text file created by some websites to store information on the user’s computer when he accesses the site. Cookies are sent from a web server to the user’s browser and stored on the user’s computer; they are then re-sent to the website at the time of subsequent visits.

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies, the following categories can be distinguished:


  1. a) technical cookies:

cookies for browsing a website and using its features, such as to allow correct viewing of pages or access to restricted areas. Therefore, disabling these cookies does not allow these activities.

They are not used for other purposes and can be divided into:


  • navigation or session cookies, to guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website
  • functionality cookies, to allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. the language) in order to improve the service provided to the user.


  1. b) performance cookies:

to collect information on the efficiency of a website’s responses to user requests anonymously, for the unique purpose of improving the functionality of the website (e.g. which pages are most frequently visited by the user, and if errors or delays occurred in the delivery of the web pages)


  1. c) profiling cookies:

focused to gain user profiles and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net.


  1. d) third party cookies

by visiting the website www.azatec.com, the user may also receive cookies on his device from sites managed by other organizations (so-called “third-party cookies”): this happens because the site may contain elements such as, for example, specific links to web pages of third-party websites or web services. These cookies can be sent to the user’s browser by third-party companies directly from their websites which can be accessed by browsing the site www.azatec.com


  1. e) Google Analytics cookies (_utma, _utmz, _gat, _ga, _gid) –

Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that allows a site owner to understand how visitors interact with the same. The Google Analytics tool uses proprietary cookies to monitor visitor interactions with respect to the site that uses its features. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time at which the current visit occurred, any previous visits to the site by the same visitor and the site that reported the web page to the visitor.

The Google Analytics tool collects information anonymously and records website trends without identifying individual visitors. Browsers do not share proprietary cookies of the Google Analytics tool between various domains. The Google Analytics privacy policy describes the way in which personal information is treated at the time such tool it is used.

They are available at: https: //www.google.com/intl/it/analytics/privacyoverview.html


Use of the visitor’s IP address through Google cookies

Each computer and device connected to the Internet is assigned a unique number as an Internet Protocol (IP) address. Since these numbers are typically assigned in blocks based on country, an IP address can often be used to identify the country, province, and city from which a computer connects to the internet.


Google Analytics collects the IP address of website visitors to provide an indication of their geographical location. This method is known as IP geolocation. Google Analytics does not report information relating to the actual IP addresses of visitors. By using a method known as IP masking, Google Analytics communicates information so that only a part of the IP address is used for geolocation, instead of the full address.


Browser add-on for disabling cookies by Google Analytics

At https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it it is possible to download the browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics. The add-on tells the Google Analytics JavaScript code (ga.js) to indicate that information about the website visit should not be sent to Google Analytics. The browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics does not prevent the information from being sent to the website itself. Furthermore, most browsers allow some control of most cookies through the settings of the browser itself. If the user does not wish to receive any type of cookie on his computer, he can raise the privacy protection level of his browser using the appropriate function
