Information on the use of cookies

Le Torracce’s websites use cookies and similar technologies to ensure proper operation of procedures and improve the experience of using online applications. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, how they are used by Le Torracce and how to manage them.


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

Similar technologies, such as web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behavior and use of services.

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

Cookies types

We can distinguish between different categories according to the characteristics and use of cookies:

Cookie strictly necessary. These cookies are indispensable for the proper functioning of Le Torracce sites and are used to manage the login and access to the reserved functions of the site. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the working session (closed the browser is deleted), with the exception of some parts of the site where you can use cookies with a longer duration (30 days deadline) to recognize, for this limited period, the computer of the visitor – through an alpha-numeric code generated at the first session of access – in order to re-propose the result of the test carried out by the user. Deactivating them will compromise the use of services that can be accessed by login. The public part of the Le Torracce sites remains normally usable.
Cookie analysis and performance. They are cookies used to collect and analyze the traffic and usage of the site anonymously. These cookies, without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect whether the same user is returning to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. You can deactivate these cookies without any loss of functionality.
Profiling cookies. These are persistent cookies used to identify anonymously and otherwise the user’s preferences and improve his or her browsing experience.
Third party cookies
By visiting a website, you can receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”) and from sites operated by other organisations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of social plugins for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by these sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.

The presence of these plugins means that cookies are transmitted from and to all third party websites. The handling of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the different information and methods for managing cookies are shown below.

Google Analytics

The Le Torracce websites also include certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (‘ Google’). Again, these are third-party cookies collected and operated anonymously by third parties to monitor and improve the performance of the guest site (performance cookies).

Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze anonymous information about your usage of Le Torracce websites (including your IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it for the purpose of compiling reports for Le Torracce’s operators regarding the activities on the websites themselves. This website does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) Google’s analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identifying information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google, nor does it attempt to link an IP address with a user’s identity. Google may also disclose this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

For further information, please refer to the link below:

The user can selectively disable the Google Analytics action by installing on his browser the opt-out component provided by Google. To disable the Google Analytics action, please refer to the link below:

Cookies duration

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits.

These cookies are called persistent cookies and their duration is determined by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in others the duration is unlimited.

By browsing the pages of Le Torracce websites, you can interact with third party operated sites that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.

Management of cookies

You can decide whether or not to accept cookies using your browser settings.

Caution: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies may compromise the use of the website’s features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.

Disabling the disabling of “third party” cookies does not in any way affect the navigability of the cookies.

The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third party” cookies.

For example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools-> Privacy Options, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
