Cookies on our site

Navgation data
This website implicitly acquires, using Internet communications protocols, for and in the course of its normal operations, some personal data on the users who access the site, like IP address, domain names of the computers used for access, MAC addresses assigned by network and wireless card manufacturers, etc.
This information is not collected for the purpose of identifying users, but this could be done by associations and processing, including cross-referencing with third-party data; statistical information is obtained from this data on site usage and operations and further information in cases of establishing responsibility related to computer crimes.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text strings that the websites visited by a user install on the user’s terminal; these strings are then re-transmitted to the site that installed them upon further visits by the user. When the user also receives cookies sent by other sites or web servers during site navigation, those cookies are called third-party cookies.
Cookies are installed for various purposes, possibly including the performance of computer authentications, navigation session monitoring, and language choice.
First-party cookies and third-party cookies
The cookies that are installed directly by Hub Innovazione Trentino are called ‘First-party cookies’, and the cookies that are installed and acquired by a site other than the one the user is navigating are called ‘Third-party cookies’.
Third-party cookies may include social media buttons (or social media plug-ins), which allow the site to interact with the most popular social media sites, such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc., or Google Analytics cookies, which are necessary to implement YouTube iframes, etc. As regards third-party cookies, it is the responsibility of the third parties installing those cookies to provide statements and information on the handling of the data collected.

Types of cookies
Technical cookies
These are normally installed directly by the site administrators and are cookies that allow communications between the site and the user. They can be navigation cookies or session cookies, used to ensure normal navigation and use of the site and normally persisting for as long the site is being navigated, or functional cookies, which allow better use of the site, like cookies related to the choice of language used on the site, adding selected items to an online shopping cart, etc.
As these cookies are necessary for the functioning of the site, it is not necessary to obtain prior consent for their installation on the user’s terminal.

Analytical cookies
These are cookies that allow the collection of user information, for example, the number of users who visit the site and how they visit the site, in a more or less aggregated form. One of the best-known tools for obtaining such statistical reports is Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc.
Analytical cookies are similar to technical cookies when the information collected is in aggregate form and it is not possible to identify the habits of an individual user; regarding Google Analytics cookies specifically, it will be necessary to anonymise, at least partially, the IP address of the user who visits the site and to prevent data being shared with Google. When this anonymization and prevention of sharing is not possible, these cookies fall under the category of profiling cookies.

Profiling cookies
These are used to track a user’s preference and offer him/her advertising messages based on those preferences. These cookies are especially invasive, and it is necessary to obtain the user’s consent before installing them on the user’s terminal.
First access banner
In the event cookies other than technical cookies are used, the Act of 8 May 2014 by the Garante Privacy requires the site to provide a banner when a user first accesses the site (called a short notice) that summarises information on the processing methods the site uses for cookies, with a reference to its full privacy policy.
Hub Innovazione Trentino has provided this banner: by clicking on any point other than the banner itself, the user accepts the installation of cookies and decides to continue using the site. It has also provided a specific cookie that records the user’s choice regarding cookie installation for 365 days; this means that the user will see the cookie only one time, and if he/she should later wish to change the choice made, he/she can do this by following the instructions under the section ‘Procedures for disabling cookies’.
