Types of cookies

Cookies are generally classified as follows:

The Memorial website uses the following types of cookies:

– Technical cookies

Technical cookies are necessary for navigating the Memorial website and using all its various functionalities.

Pursuant to Directive 2009/136/EC, enacted in Italy by Legislative Decree no 69 of 28 May 2012, technical cookies that are necessary for the use of a website do not require user consent. However, in order to provide the user with complete and clear information, the table below provides a list of the types of cookies that are strictly necessary for the use of the website.

– Tracking cookies

These cookies allow us to improve our website by monitoring and analysing user behaviour and creating profiles for each to ease navigation and use of services.

For example, tracking cookies help us keep track of frequently visited web pages, user preferences, what products have already been viewed so that they will not be suggested again, and to assess the effectiveness of advertisements published on the website and any difficulties encountered by the user when navigating the website.

The Foundation also uses Google Analytics services to assess how websites are used. Google Analytics uses session and persistent cookies to collect anonymous information (including IP address) on how users use the website. This information is transmitted from the user’s browser to Google servers located in the United States. The information is used by Google to analyse the use of the website by the user, create reports on website activity for use by website operators, and provide other services regarding website activity and internet use. Google may also communicate this information to third parties where required by law or where said third parties process the information on behalf of Google.

The information collected does not allow the user to be identified personally: all data are aggregated and thus anonymous.
