What are cookies
Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user’s device while browsing and perform various functions such as remembering login details to services, collecting statistical information about the pages visited, identifying the browser and device used, selecting targeted content and communications according to your preferences and more.
Cookies can be of various types, depending on the type of data they store and how long they remain stored on the user’s device.
Session or temporary cookies are those that expire or are deleted when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies have longer expiry dates (from a few minutes to months) depending on the functions they perform. It is precisely these functions that distinguish cookies into two categories: technical and non-technical (or profiling).
Technical cookies manage the data necessary to deliver the pages and facilitate navigation, allowing, for example, not having to re-enter user and password to access particular services, to remember the last page visited or how far you have watched a video, to recognize the type of device in use and adapt the size of images accordingly. Technical cookies also allow aggregate statistical analysis of the most visited pages and user preferences, but only in anonymous form, and are not used to analyze the behavior or preferences of individual users.
Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are used to analyse the interests and browsing habits of individual users, to personalise browsing and to provide, for example, content, including advertising, targeted at particular interests.
The cookies can be provided directly by the manager of the site on which you are browsing (cd editor) or, if the site relies on external services for particular functions, by third parties (cd third parties).
The site www.btgroup.it uses technical and third party cookies in order to improve the experience on its site, adapting it, for example, depending on the browser and device in use.
It is possible to disable the functions of cookies directly from the browser you are using, according to the instructions provided by the relevant manufacturers, or by using appropriate programs; however, please note that restricting the ability of websites to send cookies may worsen the overall browsing experience of users.
Consent to receive cookies can also be expressed through specific browser configurations by users. Most browsers allow to set rules to manage cookies sent only by some or all sites, an option that offers users a more precise control of privacy and to deny the possibility of receiving cookies, or in any case to change the choices previously made.
