3. Type of data collected

3.1 Consultation of the web portal: navigation data

During their normal operation, the IT systems and application procedures used to operate the portal acquire some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of communication protocols on the Internet.

This information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties but, by their nature and through associations with data held by third parties, they can allow identification of users.

Fall into this category, for example:

– IP addresses;

– the domain names of the systems used by users to connect to the portal;

– the addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) of the requested resources, 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 related to the user’s operating system and IT environment.

3.2. Use of cookies

To make our portal easier and more intuitive we use cookies. Cookies are small text strings sent by the site server to the user’s browser and automatically saved on the user’s device. The main purpose of cookies is to make site navigation better usable. Almost all browsers (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, etc.) are set up to accept cookies, however the user can independently modify the configuration of his browser or use specific add-ons and block them: in this case, the use of the and the use of some services may be limited.

Cookies are divided into “technical”, “analytical” and “profiling”. Then, all cookies can be divided in “First- party” and “third-party” cookies.

“First- party” and “third-party” cookies

The portal uses “First-party” cookies. “First-party” cookies, in essence, are cookies set by the same website visited by the user,  that is the site displayed in the URL window: in our case, the cookies set by the site of the Jean Monnet Chair PROTECH (

The portal also uses “Third-party” cookies.Third-party” cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one visited by the user: that is, cookies which are set by websites other than We therefore recommend that users read the privacy policies on the other websites visited through the links indicated below. We wish to underline how the University does not receive any information from the respective third party service providers or dealers, relating to data that may be recovered from them. In some cases, only aggregate, and therefore anonymous, statistics will be provided, which are necessary only for the accounting of third-party services purchased by us.

Third-party cookies are cookies from other websites (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or LinkedIn) or from advertising circuits (Google AdSense, etc.) that can be sent to the user’s device following navigation on the portal.

“Technical”, “Analytical” and “Profiling” cookies

The portal uses technical cookies, which are in no way used for user profiling activities and do not allow the collection of personal information relating to users. This type of cookies has the sole purpose of ensuring the transmission of communication between the user and the portal on the Internet and to the extent strictly necessary to provide the service offered in completeness and in the best quality conditions. The cookie-related data generated directly from the portal are in Italian territory, compatibly with the location of the servers of our hosting service provider. Cookie-related data are managed only within the site itself and are not transferred to third parties

The technical cookies are distinguished in “session” and “persistent”: both are stored on the user’s device but the former is eliminated when the browser is closed, while the latter remains stored until they expire.

The portal uses “session” cookies for the functioning of navigation within the pages, such as for example allowing authentication to restricted areas or memorizing temporary user preferences; these cookies are deleted once the browser is closed.

The use of so-called session cookies (which, in any case, are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and are automatically deleted as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited for the purpose of data (consisting of numbers random generated by the server) that identify the specific session and are necessary to allow safe and efficient exploration. The so-called session cookies used on this portal avoid the use of other IT techniques that are potentially detrimental to the confidentiality of users’ browsing on the net.

The portal in some cases also uses “persistent” cookies, to store the user’s choices relating, for example, to the language or type of device.

Persistent cookies are stored on users’ devices between distinct browser sessions and allow you to remember user actions on a site. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site (or in some cases through different websites).

There are first-party and third- party analytical cookies on the portal.

Analytical cookies collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they use the website. The information collected by these types of cookies is made anonymous and unable to monitor your browsing activity on other websites.

With regard to third-party analytical cookies, tools are used that reduce the identifying power of cookies and the third party does not cross the information collected with others it already has.

There are third-party profiling cookies on the portal.

Profiling cookies are those that allow to create a personal profile of the browser based on user’s behavior, which are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net
