Information on the use of cookies

The website uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of the procedures and to improve the experience of using online applications.
This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, on how they are used by Aku Italia S.r.l. and how to manage them.


Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser) information that can be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after several days (persistent cookies). 

Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, are usable to gather information on user behavior and use of services. 

Later in this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies”.

Types of cookies

This site uses owners and third-party cookies described below, their presence is subject to the functionality provided for the website during the design phase.

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

  • Strictly necessary (technical) cookies. 
    These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the site and are used to manage the login and access to the reserved functions of the site. The duration of the cookies persists until you log out of the reserved area. The public part of the site remains normally usable. In particular, the Site uses: PHPSESSID (duration of browsing session); it contains information on the browser session and allows users to access the site.
  • Analysis and performance cookies.
    These cookies are used to collect and analyze the traffic and the use of the site anonymously. Even without identifying the user, they 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 usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.

  • Profiling cookies.
    These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The site does not use cookies of this type.

  • Third-party cookies.
    By visiting a website you can receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”), and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page which are generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.

The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all the sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made. To guarantee greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of  different information and methods for managing cookies are set out below.

Google Analytics

The site includes components of Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Also in this case these are third-party cookies which are collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies).

Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze information about site usage behaviour (including the user’s IP address) anonymously.
This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it for the purpose of preparing reports for website operators regarding the activities on the websites themselves.

This website uses third-party cookies belonging to Google Inc. for the collection of users’ browsing data. The data collected in this way are used solely for the purpose of generating statistical reports within the analysis tool Google Analytics. A demographic profiling of users can also be performed, extracting statistically relevant data including age group, sex, interest categories. More information on the processing of data by Google Inc. can be found at the following addresses: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html and https://www.google.it/policies/privacy/partners/. Users can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing on their browser the opt-out component provided by Google. To disable the action of Google Analytics, please refer to the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

To disable Google Analytics for display advertising or to customize the types of ads displayed, you can access the address https://www.google.it/settings/ads.

The site also includes the following cookies:

  • Reserved area cookies
    If there is a reserved area, a cookie that can remember the username and password of the user is generated. In this way, the information must not be reinserted at each subsequent visit;

  • Mobile browsing cookies
    With the aim of making experiential navigation even on the latest generation of devices, this website has a cookie that can detect and store the access device used. Based on the collected information, the most appropriate version of the site will be presented;

  • E-shop order recovery cookies
    If there is an e-commerce area, the system stores the user’s interaction with the purchase area, generating a cookie that can recover the placed orders.

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration can be unlimited. This site can make use of persistent cookies only for technical purposes.
However, while browsing the pages of the website you can interact with sites managed by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.

Management of cookies

The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser.
Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.

The disabling of “third-party” cookies does not affect the navigability in any way.

The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “owners” cookies and for those of “third parties”.

As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools -> Options -> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
