Type of data processed and purpose of processing
1. Browsing data, information for accessing authenticated areas and the storage thereof
The computer systems and the software procedures used to operate these Sites, during their normal operation, acquire some data that are implicitly transmitted when using Internet communication protocols.
This data is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its nature it could, even through processing data held by third parties, allow users/visitors to be identified (e.g. IP address, domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Sites, identifier, brand and model of the device and other parameters relating to the operating system of the device, the code indicating the status of the response given by the server, type of browser, the identifier of the individual session with timestamps of the beginning and the end of the browsing session, possible identifier of the account and of the activities carried out on the Sites, etc.).
This data is only used for statistical purposes and to check that the Sites are working properly. The data itself is stored for a maximum of six months, without prejudice to further storage for any investigation of computer crimes against the Sites or to meet specific regulatory obligations.
No data from the web service will be disseminated.
2.1 General information on cookies
Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to their devices (usually to browsers or smartphones), where they are stored and then transmitted back to the same sites each time they visit using the same device. In addition, each website may allow the transmission of third-party cookies, i.e. cookies generated by websites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects on it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains).
Depending on their duration, a distinction is made between session cookies (i.e. cookies that are temporary and automatically deleted from the device at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. cookies that remain stored on the device until they expire or are deleted by the user).
Cookies serve several purposes. They are primarily used to carry out the transmission of a communication or to provide the service requested by the user. More specifically, they enable and optimise the operation of the website, perform computer authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the user's browsing experience, for example by maintaining the connection to reserved areas while browsing through the pages of the site without having to re-enter the User ID and password and storing specific information about the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used). They may also be used (anonymously, if third-party) to carry out aggregate analysis on the operation of the site , the number of users and how they visit the site.
The above-mentioned cookies are called technical cookies (their use does not require the user's consent), since without them some of the operations mentioned above could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure.
2.2 Use of first-party cookies on these Sites
These Sites may use session cookies and persistent cookies.
The types of first-party cookies generated and transmitted by these Sites are:
2.3 Analytics cookies
TIM S.p.A. uses web measurement services to collect aggregate/statistical information on the number of users and how they visit these Sites.
Specifically, the service used is Google Analytics provided by the company Google LLC, configured in such a way that these analytics cookies are treated on the par with technical cookies, in accordance with the Italian Personal Data Protection Authority Guidelines of 10 June 2021.
2.4 Third-party cookies
These Sites also allow the transmission to the user's device of third-party cookies with whom TIM S.p.A. cooperates, as a technical intermediary, sending these cookies, but having no control or access to the information provided/acquired. For these cookies, it is possible to access the privacy information of the third parties by clicking the links below. The third parties consist of the following categories:
a) social media, which typically manage cookies to enable, via plug-ins, the sharing of content between “logged in” members of the same social media network. The social media with which the Sites interact, solely for the purpose of sharingpages of the site, are:
2.5 Managing your cookie preferences
Cookies can be managed by the user through their browser.
The user/visitor can manage cookie preferences through menu options present in common browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), which allow users to delete/remove cookies (all or some) or to change the settings of the browser itself in order to block the sending of cookies or to limit it to specific sites (as opposed to others). It is possible to find out how to configure the browser settings (usually accessible from the 'Tools' bar) by going to the 'Support' web pages of the providers of these browsers (which can also be found using a common search engine).
Disabling cookies does not in itself preclude the use of the Website's services; however, if all cookies, including technical ones, are deleted/blocked, some operations cannot be performed or will be more complex and/or less secure, such as, performing activities within the website's Restricted Areas (in fact, cookies make it possible to carry out and maintain user identification during the session).
3. Data provided voluntarily by users/visitors
If users/visitors connect to these Sites and send their personal data in order to access certain services, or to make requests by e-mail or filling out web-forms, this involves the acquisition by TIM S.p.A. of the sender's address and/or any other personal data, which will be processed exclusively for the purpose of responding to the request or to provide the service.
Personal data provided by users/visitors will only be disclosed to third parties if such disclosure is necessary to fulfil the requests of users/visitors.
Processing is carried out by means of automated and telematic tools and/or manually for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data were collected and, in any case, in accordance with the relevant legislation in force.
