Navigation data

With regard to technical aspects and protocols only, we wish to inform you that:

– The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website may acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

– This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified interested parties, but by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow the Users to be identified.

– This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by Users who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the User’s operating system and computer environment.

– This data may be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.


Cookies are small text files that are sent by the website visited to the User’s device (usually to the browser), where they are stored so that they can recognise that device on the next visit. On each subsequent visit, cookies are sent back to the site from the User’s device. Each cookie generally contains: the name of the server from which the cookie was sent, the expiry date and a value, usually a unique number generated at random by the computer. The website server that transfers the cookie uses this number to recognise the User when they return to a site or navigate from one page to another. Cookies can be installed not only by the same operator of the site visited by the User (first party cookies), but also by a different site that installs cookies through the first site (third party cookies) and is able to recognise them. This happens because on the site visited there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than that of the site visited.

In general, cookies are classified into different types according to:


– session (temporary) cookie automatically deleted when the browser is closed.

– Persistent cookie active until its expiry date or deletion by the user.


– first-party cookie sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting.

– third-party cookie sent to the browser from other sites and not from the site you are visiting.


– technical cookie

– navigational/essential/performance/process or security cookie contributes to the operation of the site, e.g. enables you to navigate between pages or access secure areas. If it is blocked, the site cannot function properly.

– functionality/preferences/localisation/session status cookies allow you to store information that changes the behaviour or appearance of the site (preferred language, text and font size, geographical location). If it is blocked, the experience is less functional but not compromised.

– statistical/analytic (a) first-party or (b) third-party cookie with IP masking, without cross-referencing (similar to the technical cookie in purpose), is used to collect information and generate website usage statistics to understand how visitors interact.

– non-technical cookie

– third party statistical/analytic cookie with no IP masking, cross-referenced, to collect information, generate statistics and analyze visitor usage.


METRICODE S.R.L., has implemented the obligations provided for by the Measure of the Guarantor Authority for the Protection of Personal Data Identification of simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies – 8 May 2014 (Published in the Official Gazette No. 126 of 3 June 2014)”, as well as subsequent interventions of the Guarantor Authority on the subject of “cookies”. The following is all the information on the cookies installed through this site, and the necessary indications on how to manage the Users’ preferences regarding them. METRICODE S.R.L. wishes to inform users that its website ( may use the following types of cookies:

Technical cookies

These cookies are necessary for the correct functioning of our website: they are cookies that serve to carry out navigation or to provide a service requested by the User; they are not used for further purposes and are installed directly by the data controller. Without the use of these cookies, certain operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure. The aforementioned cookies cannot be disabled using the functions of this website, but can be deactivated through the settings of your browser at any time (in the manner indicated below). Deactivating them may prevent you from enjoying certain areas of the website to the fullest.

Third-party analytical cookies, assimilated to technical cookies

Our website uses third-party cookies for statistical purposes. In particular, our website uses Google Analytics: this is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”) that uses cookies that are stored on your computer to allow statistical analysis in aggregate form regarding the use of the website visited. We would like to inform you that tools have been adopted to reduce the identifying power of cookies (by masking significant portions of the IP address) and the third party does not cross-reference the information collected with other information it already has. For further information, please refer to the links below:

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

– Please note that the website does not use so-called “profiling cookies”.

In general, beyond the type of cookies used by this website, we would like to inform Users that, in addition to the protections provided for by the regulations in force, there are options available for surfing without cookies, such as, by way of example

– Block third-party cookies: third-party cookies are generally not essential for browsing, so it is possible to refuse them by default, through specific functions in your browser, or by selecting the option Do Not Track.

– Enable the Do Not Track option: the Do Not Track option is present in most of the latest generation of browsers. Websites designed to comply with this option should automatically stop collecting certain browsing data when it is activated. As mentioned, however, not all websites are set up to respect this (discretionary) option.

– Enable ‘anonymous surfing’ mode: with this function, you can surf without leaving any trace of your surfing data in the browser. The sites will not remember you, the pages you visit will not be stored in your history and new cookies will be deleted. However, anonymous browsing does not guarantee anonymity on the Internet, as it only serves to keep your browsing data out of your browser, whereas your browsing data will continue to be available to website operators and connectivity providers.

– Delete cookies directly: there are special functions for doing this in all browsers. However, it should be borne in mind that new cookies are downloaded every time you connect to the Internet, so you should delete them periodically. If you wish, some browsers offer automated systems for the periodic deletion of cookies.
