What cookies are used on this website?

On this website, the following are used:

  • Technical cookies, designed to ensure the proper use of the site content;
  • Third-party analytical cookies as a tool used to analyse the behaviour of visitors to the website;

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text strings that a website can send to the user’s device (PC, notebook, smartphone or tablet) during their visit to the website and they are usually saved directly in the browser used for browsing. The same website that sent them can then read and record the cookies that are on the device to obtain various types of information.

How many types of cookies are there?

There are different types of cookies, with different characteristics.
Cookies can be classified, above all, as:

  • Session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed (e.g. Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.)
  • Persistent cookies, which – unlike session cookies – remain on the device and continue to operate even after the browser has been closed and until a certain period of time has passed
  • First-party cookies, i.e. cookies generated and managed directly by the operator of the website that the user is browsing
  • Third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website that the user is browsing (as a rule, pursuant to a contract between the website owner and the third party). 

The two main functional categories are:

  • Technical cookiestechnical cookies are generally necessary for the correct operation of the website and to allow browsing; without them the visitor might not be able to view the pages correctly or use certain services. For example, a technical cookie is required to keep the user connected throughout their visit to a website, or to store language settings, display settings, and so on.  Technical cookies can be further divided into browser cookies, which ensure the normal browsing and use of the website (e.g. allowing the visitor to make a purchase or be authorised to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies only when used directly by the operator of the website to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to that user.

    It should be noted that the use of technical cookies does not require consent of the user, according to the provisions of Directive 2009/136/EC, the Decision of the Italian Data Protection Authority of 8 May 2014 and the “Guidelines on cookies and other tracking tools” – 10 June 2021.
     
  • Profiling cookiesprofiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user and are used to promote offers in line with the preferences displayed by the user during web browsing. Given that these tools are not necessary for the correct operation of the website but are used exclusively to allow the site user to learn about offers that best suit his or her needs, they require the site user’s consent, which can be freely withdrawn at any time without prejudice to processing prior to revocation (art. 6, para. 1, letter a) of the GDPR), Hera S.p.A., within its remit and in accordance with applicable regulations, shall provide the updated link to the privacy policies and consent forms of the third parties with whom it has entered into agreements for the installation of cookies through its website.
