Cookie Policy

This website, owned by ActionAid International Italia Onlus – data controller as per Italian Personal Data Protection Code – uses cookies, and similar technology. This notice provides you with information about how we use cookies and how you can control them.

By using this website (and each website operated by us), you accept the use of cookies (and similar technology) in accordance with this notice. In particular, you accept the use of essential type cookies, analytics and functionality cookies for the purposes described below.

What is a cookie? 

Cookies are small files of letters and numbers that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website, which recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
Cookies do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
We use two broad categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your computer.
  • Third party cookies, served by a third party on our behalf.  We use third party cookies to help us analyse our websites and their use.

Cookies may be distinguished into these major groups: “technical”, “analytics”, “functional” and “profiling” cookies.

  1. Technical cookies are those used exclusively with a view to carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network. This is strictly necessary to provide the user with a service requested. They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the data controller or the website manager.
    They can be grouped into browsing or session cookies, which allow users to navigate and use a website
  2. Analytics cookies can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website
  3. Functional cookies allow users to navigate as a function of certain pre-determined criteria such as language or services required by the users to improve the quality of service.
  4. Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles. They are used to send ads messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation. Users’ prior consent is necessary to install these cookies.
