Cookies are short pieces of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (the browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even days later (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user 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 about user behavior and the use of services.
In the rest of this document, we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply as “cookies.”
- Strictly Necessary Cookies: These are essential cookies for the proper functioning of Calzari Alati websites and are used to manage login and access to reserved site functions. The duration of these cookies is strictly limited to the work session (they are deleted when the browser is closed), except for Calzari Alati websites where longer-lasting cookies (with a 30-day expiration) are used to recognize the visitor’s computer for that limited period, through an alphanumeric code generated during the first access session, in order to present the user with the test result. Disabling them compromises the use of services accessible by login. The public part of Calzari Alati websites remains normally usable.
- Analytics and Performance Cookies: These are cookies used to collect and analyze traffic and site usage anonymously. These cookies, without identifying the user, allow, for example, the detection of whether the same user reconnects at different times. They also allow monitoring of 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 the user’s preferences (anonymously) and improve their browsing experience.
When visiting a website, you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“first-party”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned 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 third-party sites managed. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by their respective policies, which should be referred to. For greater transparency and convenience, the following are the web addresses of the different policies and the methods for managing cookies:

Calzari Alati websites also include certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). In this case as well, 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 anonymously analyze information about the usage behaviors of Calzari Alati websites (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it to create reports for Calzari Alati operators regarding activities on the websites themselves. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to track or collect personally identifiable 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 by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
Google Analytics cookies are used to: record a unique ID used to generate statistical data on how the visitor uses my website; limit the frequency of queries;

Users can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on their browser. To disable Google Analytics action, please refer to the following link:
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” the browser closure and are available for subsequent user visits.
These cookies are called persistent, and their duration is determined by the server when they are created. In some cases, an expiration date is set, while in other cases, the duration is unlimited.
However, while browsing the pages of Calzari Alati websites, you may interact with sites managed by third parties that can create or modify persistent and profiling cookies
