Information on the use of cookies

The website used by the company 6 TOUR SRL uses cookies and similar technology to ensure the proper functionality of processes, to improve the user experience for online applications, and for security reasons. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technology, on how they are used by the company and how to manage them.

Definitions

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to the user’s terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored in order to be retransmitted to the same websites on the successive visit by the same user. While navigating a website, the user can also receive cookies on their terminal sent by other sites or web servers (“third party” cookies) which may contain certain elements (such as, images, maps, sounds and specific links to pages of other domains, for example) present on the site that the user is visiting.

Cookies, usually present in the browsers of users in very large numbers and sometimes also with the feature of persisting over a long period of time, are used for different purposes: electronic authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, etc.

For the remainder of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technology by simply using the term “cookies”.

Types of cookies

As regards the cookies used by the website managed by 6 TOUR SRL, different categories can be distinguished based on their characteristics and use:

  1. Technical cookies.

    Technical cookies are those used only for the purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service expressly requested by the subscriber or user in order to provide such service”.

    Such cookies are not used for any other purpose and are installed directly by the operator of the website and used for the functionality of the system and for security reasons, namely to check that the identity of the person carrying out the operation corresponds to that of the person registered on the portal.

    They can be divided into: navigation or session cookies which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, the user to make a purchase, or authenticate in order to access reserved areas); analytical cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself; functional cookies, that allow the user to navigate based on a series of selected criteria (for example language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.

  2. Profiling cookies.

    Profiling cookies serve to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by users in the context of online navigation.

  3. Third party cookies and Google Analytics

    Visiting a website you can receive cookies both from the site visited (“first party”) and by sites operated by other organisations (“third party”).

    The presence of these plug-ins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties and in particular the components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

    In this case these are also third party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies).

    Google Analytics uses cookies to collect and analyse information anonymously on usage behaviour regarding the website (including the IP address of the user). Such information is collected by Google Analytics which processes it in order to draw up reports for the operators of 6 TOUR SRL regarding activities on the websites themselves. This website does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) Google’s analysis tool to track or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google, nor does it seek to link an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may also communicate this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

    You can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out browser add-on provided by Google. To disable Google Analytics, please consult the link below:
