Cookie Policy

TMS Telemedicine South Tyrol Srl website uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of procedures and improve the use of online applications. This document provides detailed information on how to use cookies and similar technologies: how they are used by TMS Telemedicine South Tyrol Srl and how to manage them.

 

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 days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences from a single browser on the specific device being used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

Later in this document we will refer to cookies and similar technologies,  by simply using the word "cookie".

 

Type of cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies we can distinguish different categories:

  • Technical cookies. These cookies are used to browse or provide a service requested by the user (navigation or session). They are not used for further purposes and their prior consent is not required for their installation.
  • Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are used to create profiles related to the user and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown in the context of surfing the net. Considering their invasiveness, the user is asked for the prior consent to their installation.

  • Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and use. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality. One of the most used tools for web analysis is "Google Analytics": a service of Google Inc. through which it is possible to collect navigation statistics. The Guarantor Authority has clarified that these cookies can be framed among technical ones when an IP address is anonymized (even partially) and information shares are eliminated with Google. Otherwise these types of cookies are associated with those of profiling. The various types of cookies can be first-hand (ie processed and managed directly by the owner of the website) or third parties (when installed and acquired by different subjects). Among the third-party cookies fall for example the "social plugin", for example, those components that allow integration with Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, etc) that operate through the website, generating cookies. The management of information collected by third parties is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made.

 

Google Analytics

TMS Telemedicine South Tyrol Srl  website also includes certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). What Google uses are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookie).

This website does not use (and do not allow third parties to use) the analysis tool of Google to track or collect personally identifiable information. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google or try to link an IP address with the identity of a user.
