What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files used to compile statistics concerning the use of the Site, to understand navigation experiences and the visitors’ possible requirements. Data collected through cookies are used to improve the navigation experience and the Site performance in the future.

Cookies can be divided into two categories:

  • first-party cookies”, set directly by the domain and/or editor of the website visited by the user; and/or
  • “third-party cookies”, set by a domain other than the one of the website being visited by the user.

Cookies may be further divided based on the purposes for which they are used: some of them offer an improved navigation experience, remembering visitors’ choices regarding specific settings (the so-called “technical cookies”) and hence ensure enhanced functionalities, while others allow to monitor the user’s navigation also in order to send advertisements and/or to offer services in line with the user’s preferences (“profiling cookies”).


a) First-party cookies

This Site uses technical cookies, and in particular:

  1. Navigation or session cookies: which are required for normal browsing within the Site and to properly use the relevant services. They are not stored in the user’s computer and expire when the browser session is closed;
  2. Functional cookies: which are solely used to improve and speed up the browsing of the Site, by remembering certain user’s choices (such as language preferences);

These types of cookies ensure the normal navigation and use of the Site, and allow to properly enjoy the contents published by Nctm or to log in to access reserved areas. Such cookies also allow to collect aggregate information on number of users and how they visit the Site, as well as information relating to the language selected during navigation.

Cookies do not collect personal information on visitors, and personally identifiable data, if any, will not be stored. Users may refuse the use of cookies. However it should be noted that by totally disabling browser cookies, the user may not be able to use all interactive functions offered by the browser.

With regard to these cookies, the Cookies Provision imposes an opt-out regime. Users have the right to be informed, by means of this information notice prepared by the Controller, and may as well decide to refuse their consent to the use of such instruments.


b) Third-party cookies

When a user is navigating some cookies that are not directly controlled by the Controller may be stored on his/her device, for example when the user visits a page including contents of a third party website. Moreover, the Site uses third-party profiling cookies. With regard to these cookies, the user’s consent  will be deemed to have ben given every time the user clicks the “Accept” button present in the banner appearing in the homepage. In any case, users may subsequently withdraw their consent to the installation of said cookies.

Said cookies, the so-called “third party cookies”, may be divided into:

  • Analytical cookies, used to collect and analyse statistical information on the number of users and on the visits to the Site. The disabling of such third party cookies does not affect the use of the Site;
  • Widgets/Plugin: some widgets and plugin made available by social networks (such as, by way of example only and without limitation, LinkedIn button or the display of YouTube videos directly within the websites where the user is navigating) may use their own cookies to facilitate the interaction with the reference site. Their disabling does not affect the use of the Site, unless for the possibility of quick sharing of contents and/or of displaying multimedia contents present therein;
  • Profiling cookies: used to collect information concerning preferences and habits expressed by the user during the navigation and hence to make advertisements published by third parties more captivating and focused.

This Site uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (hereinafter, “Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on the devices used by users in order to analyse how they use the Site. Anonymous and aggregate information generated by the cookie on how users use the Site will be transmitted to and stored in Google servers in the United States.

Google will use such information for the purpose to track and examine the use of the Site, to compile reports on the Site activities for Site managers and to provide other services relating to the activities of the Site and to Internet use.
