IP addresses and cookies
For system administration, we collect information about the device, including (where available) the IP address, the operating system, and the browser version. These are statistical data on the actions and browsing behavior of our users, which do not identify the person.
For the same reason, we can obtain information on the use that users make in general of Internet, using a cookie file that is stored in the user device.
Cookies are small text files that are temporarily stored on the hard drive. The information stored in cookies is used, for example, to facilitate the navigation and, in certain cases, to increase the intuitiveness of a website. Cookies helps us to improve the Website and to provide better, more targeted content. Currently, cookies are used by Spina Group only if technically necessary or if required for the Website user, for example to carry out authentications with protected websites. In these cases, the user will receive explicit information. Most browsers are pre-configured to automatically accept cookies. However, you can set your browser to reject them or to view the received cookie notifications.
If you share your device with other people, it is advisable not to select the “remember data” option when the website suggests to do it.
What do we trace?
The cookies used to collect personal information on our Website are non-intrusive. We use standard third-party cookies, such as Google Analytics, to monitor online behavior and obtain statistical information at aggregate level in the following ways:
- We track the number of visits to the Website, where each visitor came from (i.e. the website the user visited prior to coming to the Website) and where each visitor goes to from our Website (i.e. the website the user visits after leaving ours), the geolocation and the behavior while browsing our Website;
- A cookie is stored on the user’s device, connected to the user’s IP address, for no more than two (2) years. This allows us to detect if you come back to the Website.
How to manage and reject cookies
Unless the browser settings are set up to reject all cookies, our systems will notify cookies each time the user access the Website.
The "do not track" option is available in most of the latest generation browsers. Websites which have been developed to comply with this option, should automatically stop collecting user browsing data when this setting is activated; however, we reiterate that not all websites are set up to respect this (optional) preference.
User can activate the "anonymous browsing" mode, thus without revealing data in the browser (the pages already visited will not be stored in the browsing history and new cookies will be deleted). However, the "anonymous browsing" function does not guarantee complete anonymity on internet, because it only allows not to save browsing data, while browsing data remains available to website managers and connectivity providers.
Cookies can be deleted directly by the user, through specific browser functions. However, we remind that new cookies are downloaded on every new internet connection, therefore the delete operation should be performed periodically. Some browsers offer automated systems for the recurrent deletion of cookies.
The procedure to manage and change the cookie settings is usually found in the "Options", "Tools” or "Preferences" menu of the browser.
The Big Commerce platform also installs cookies.
These are cookies necessary for the operation of the platform and analytical cookies, which are not necessary and which the user can accept or not.
The selection of unnecessary cookies is possible through the same tools (banner and site) made available to select the cookies installed by Spina Group.
Third-party cookies are not essential for browsing, so the user can refuse them through specific browser functions.
The data generated by Google Analytics is stored by Google as indicated in the information available at the following link: developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
Google also provides a browser add-on to disable Google Analytics: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it.
