Extended information on the use of cookies by this website

This policy, together with the Privacy Policy, outlines some rules for managing our website www.oximet.it including with regard to the use of Users' information.

Specifically, this section provides information about any cookies active on the website and how they are used. The Cookie Policy (or "Extended Information on the Use of Cookies") below regarding the use of cookies on the website is made available to the User in implementation of the provision of the Personal Data Protection Authority entitled "Identification of the simplified methods for the provision of information and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies", or in compliance with the further clarifications and guidelines published and issued in this regard by such Authority and the relevant European Authorities (see Guidelines for cookies and other tracking tools - June 10, 2021 et seq.).


A "cookie" is a small text file installed by websites on the User's computer when the User accesses a particular website or uses certain services offered by that website. The purpose is to store and transport information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer on which the website visited is running) to the User's browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the User's device. For more information and to learn more about cookies in general, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.


In general, cookies can be used for a variety of reasons, for example to monitor visitors' use of the website, to improve page navigation, to allow visitors to set personal preferences on the websites visited, to protect their security, and to present advertisements based on their interests.


In general, and according to a common terminology, cookies can have different characteristics that allow them to be classified according to:

  • Duration of permanence on the User's device. In this case we use terms like session or temporary cookies or persistent cookies.
  • Origin. In this case we’re talking about first-party cookies (sent to the browser directly from the website you are visiting) or third-party cookies (sent to the browser from other websites and not from the website you are visiting).
  • Purpose. Here, also in accordance with what is regulated in this regard by the Personal Data Protection Authority, we’re speaking of technical cookies or analytical identification and profiling cookies.

Following this classification, the same cookie may also have all these characteristics at the same time, so for example there might be a persistent cookie coming from a third party and with profiling purposes.


Session/temporary cookies are not stored persistently but only limited to the duration of the browsing session. This means that they are automatically deleted from the User's device once the User has exited the website and closed the browser.

Persistent cookies are stored on the User's device until deleted by the User or until they reach their expiration date, if pre-set. Therefore, they are not automatically deleted from the User's device when they leave the website.


First-party cookies are the cookies issued by the website currently being visited. The website is the site corresponding to the address typed by the User (website displayed in the URL text box). Third-party cookies are the cookies issued by a different website than the one being visited by the User.


Technical cookies are essential for browsing the website and for using some of its features. They can be broken down as follows:

  • Browsing/communication/performance cookies ensure normal browsing and use of the website (for example allowing visitors to buy something or get authenticated to access restricted areas). if these cookies are blocked, the website may no longer function properly.
  • "Strictly necessary” cookies (functionality/preference/location/session state) store information that changes the behavior or appearance of the website (preferred language, text and font size, local geographic area). If these are blocked the browsing experience will be less functional but not compromised. These cookies allow the website to remember the choices you make (such as language preference, what content is of interest, etc.) and to provide the personalized features you select in order to improve your browsing experience. In some cases these cookies may also be used to offer online services (e.g. live chat) or to prevent Users from being offered services they have already refused in the past.

Analytical cookies are used to enable web services to collect information regarding user access, such as the number of visitors to the website, how long they stay, and what parts of the website they visit. Such cookies may be first- or third-party cookies.

  • Third-party statistical/analytics cookies without power to identify the user (with IP masking and no cross-referencing with other data held by the third party) are considered by current law to be similar to technical cookies in that they meet the following conditions: adoption of measures that reduce the identifying power of cookies by masking portions of the IP; the third party makes reference to the commitment to use such cookies exclusively for the provision of the service, and to store them separately and not to "enrich" or "cross-reference" them with other information it has.
  • Third-party statistical/analytics cookies with power to identify the user are cookies used to collect information and generate website usage statistics, to understand how visitors interact with the website. These cookies are deemed to have high identification value when the following conditions are not implemented at the same time: (i) no action is taken to reduce the identifying power of the cookies (e.g., by masking significant portions of the IP); (ii) the third party cross-references the information in the cookies with other information it already has.

Additional third-party requests
Third-party requests are all those requests that a website makes for loading content from third-party domains. The connection could be a subdomain of the website being visited or an unrelated domain name. While some third-party requests are necessary for the functionality of a website, for example for content uploaded by a content distribution network, other requests are used to display advertisements, social media buttons, tracking scripts or other content.
