please be informed that, pursuant to Legislative Decree 30 June 2003 no. 196 “Italian Personal data protection code”, and to the general provisions of the Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante) of 8 May 2014, ECORL – Economy Co-Responsability Learning, Data Controller, provides the users of the site http://www.ecorl.it with some information concerning cookies used on the site.
Cookies are small text files generated by the website and stored on the user’s computer when the user accesses a specific site, with the purpose of storing and transmitting the user’s information in order to allow the improvement of the offered service.
Cookies are sent by a web server (i.e. the computer on which the visited web site is running) to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored in the latter’s computer; they are then re-sent to the website on the subsequent visits.
The information contained in cookies may be used to keep track of searches made also on other different websites which use the same cookie.
Cookies are classified based on the duration and on the site which has set them, therefore different cookies are used depending on the single objectives.
The main types are:
- session (which are erased when the browser is closed)
- persistent (which are erased after a set period of time)
- first party (which are subject to and readable only for the domain which generated them)
- third party (which are generated and are subject to domains different to the one the user is visiting, the most well-known example is google analytics)
Session cookies are stored temporarily in the memory of your device (personal computer, tablet etc.) while browsing the site, for example, to keep track of the chosen language. Session cookies remain stored in the computer for a short period and are then erased when the web browser is closed.
Persistent or traceable cookies
Persistent cookies save a file in the memory of your device (PC, Tablet etc.) for a long period of time. This type of cookie has an expiry date. Persistent cookies allow web sites to remember information and settings on users’ subsequent visits, making browsing easier and quicker. On the expiry date, the cookie is automatically erased on the first access to the website which generated it.
First party cookies
These cookies are set by the websites (with the same domain as the one shown in the browser’s address bar) and can be read only by those sites. They are usually used to store data such as preferences, to be used in the subsequent visits to the site.
Third party cookies
These cookies are set by domains different from the one shown in the browser’s address bar, by organizations which are not the owners of the websites. The cookies used, for example, to gather information for advertisement and content personalization purposes, as well as for statistical purposes, can be “third party cookies”. Third party cookies allow to obtain more complete statistics of the users’ browsing history and are deemed to be more sensitive from the integrity point of view. For this reason, most web browsers allow to modify the settings so that these cookies are not accepted.
We believe that it is essential to provide users with information on the cookies which our website uses and on the purposes for which they are used.
There are three objectives: to guarantee privacy, to ensure easy use, and to optimize the development of our web site.
The following is a detailed explanation of the cookies used in our website and the relevant purposes.
The website of ECORL – Economy Co-Responsability Learning uses only technical cookies, for which, pursuant to art. 122 of the Italian personal data protection code and to the provisions of the Italian Data Protection Authority of 8 May 2014, user consent is not required.

Google Analytics is used on the site.

Social network buttons and widgets
Social buttons are those particular “buttons” in the site which show social network icons (for example, Facebook and Twitter) and allow users who are navigating to interact directly with the social platforms through a “click”.
The site does not use social buttons which redirect to the Controller’s social network accounts. Therefore, through the use of those buttons no third party cookies are installed in the site.
In any case the following list provides the links where the user can read the privacy statements concerning data processing by Social Networks:
The website of ECORL – Economy Co-Responsability Learning uses on some pages, AddThis.
AddThis lets you add and make the management of some social network buttons to allow users to share content on various social platforms or through some messaging apps for Android or IOS.

Except for technical cookies which are strictly necessary for normal navigation, the data provision is up to the user who decides to browse the site after having read the short statement in the specific banner and to use the services which entail the installation of cookies.
