Cookie Policy


This website (hereinafter referred to as the “Site”) uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of procedures and improve the user experience of online applications. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, how they are used by Hitachi Systems CBT S.p.A. (the “Company”) and how to deactivate them if necessary.

Definitions

Cookies are short pieces of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (browser), to be reused during the same visit to the Site (session cookies) or later, even after many days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by a single browser on the specific device being used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, clear GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behaviour and use of services.
Further on in this document we will make reference to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term “cookies”.

Types of cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies, we can distinguish several categories.

Technical cookies

These cookies are essential for Site browsing. They perform essential functions such as authentication, validation, management of a browsing session and allow, for example, to identify whether the user has had regular access to areas of the Site that require prior user validation or authentication, and session management for the various services and applications, or storing data for access in safe mode.

Pursuant to Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code (in the applicable version after the coming into force of the Italian Legislative Decree no. 69/2012) “technical” cookies can be used even in the absence of consent of the interested party.

For the purposes of disclosure, listed below are a number of technical cookies and specific cases of implementation on the Site: the cookies set directly in the user's terminal or by third-party domains (which will not be used for other purposes) such as authentication cookies, cookies for media content such as flash player that do not go beyond the duration of the session, customization cookies (for example, the choice of browsing language, user’s ID and password completion as you type the first characters, etc.).

Without these cookies, the Site or portions of it may not work properly. Therefore, they are always used and sent, unless the user changes the settings in their browser (thus compromising the display of the web pages).

Analytical cookies

These cookies are used to statistically analyse accesses and/or visits to the Site, therefore they are used exclusively for statistical purposes (and not for profiling or marketing) and collect aggregate information that cannot be used to identify the individual user. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow us, for example, to detect if the same user returns and connects at a different time. They also allow us to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. These cookies can be deactivated without any loss of functionality.
This Site uses Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to collect and analyse information on Site usage behaviour (including user’s IP address) in anonymous form. This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports about website activities. This Site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) Google’s analysis tool to track or collect personally identifiable information. Google shall not associate user’s IP address with any other data held by Google or seek to link an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may also disclose this information to third parties if required to do so by law, or if such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

You can selectively disable the installation of Google Analytics on your browser by installing the opt-out tool provided by Google. To disable Google Analytics, please refer to the link below:

Profiling cookies

These are persistent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user’s preferences with the goal of behaviour analysis for marketing purposes. THIS SITE DOES NOT USE COOKIES OF THIS TYPE.

Third-party cookies

While browsing the Site users may receive cookies on their terminals from different sites or web servers (“third-party” cookies): this is because there may be elements on the Site, such as, for example, pictures, maps, sounds, or specific links to web pages on other domains that reside on a different server than that of the page requested by the user. In other words, these cookies are set directly by the operators of websites or servers other than the Site.

These cookies can be sent to the user’s browser from third-party companies directly from their website, which can be accessed from this Site. In such cases, the Company is not responsible for the functionality of these cookies, the setting of which is the responsibility of the third-party companies.

In compliance with current legislation, the user can give consent and change their preferences at any time on the use of such cookies through the specific configuration of their browser and IT programs or devices, which allow clear usability and are easy to use. You also can disable cookies at any time in your browser settings, although this may prevent you from using certain parts of the Site. In any case, disabling “third-party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way.

For the purposes of disclosure of information required to the managers of “first-party sites” (this Site) should “third-party cookies” be used, we inform you that the following third-party cookies are in use on this Site:

Google Maps

Google Maps provides interactive maps that allow publishers to include customizable interactive maps within their own web pages. This site may use Google Maps to provide detailed information on the location of the headquarters of the Company or the sports or training ground.

If you wish to disable the use of cookies by Google Maps, please read the following:

Social media plugins

“Social media plugins” for Facebook and Twitter are used on this Site. Part of the page visited is generated directly by these sites and integrated into the page on the host Site. The most common use of social media plugins is to share content on social networks.

The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites operated by third parties. For details on the management of the information collected by “third parties” please refer to their respective policies. In the interests of transparency and for your convenience, the following web addresses provide information and procedures for the management of cookies on social networks:

YouTube

YouTube is a web platform that allows for the sharing and online viewing of videos (video sharing). YouTube uses standard HTML5 tags in new versions of browsers (or Adobe Flash Video in older) to display a wide range of videos, which is replaced by a proprietary application if the user has activated the beta test.

If you wish to disable the use of cookies by YouTube, please read the following:

Other websites and third-party services

This Site may also contain links to other websites that have their own privacy policy - to which reference is made - which may be different from the one adopted by the Company, which, therefore, is not responsible for third-party sites.

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) are active until you close the browser or logout. Other cookies “survive” the closure of the browser and are also available during future visits.

These cookies are known as persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases there is a fixed deadline, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

This website uses both session and persistent cookies.

In addition, while browsing the pages of this Site, you may interact with sites operated by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.

Managing cookies

By changing your browser settings, you can accept or disallow cookies or choose to receive a warning before accepting a cookie from the website visited. Cookies can also be deleted by deleting the contents of the “cookie” folder on the browser used.
