crowdMapping.eu cookie policy

In accordance with current legislation about the use of personal data and for the use of cookies, Giovanni Borga, administrator of crowdmapping.eu, wishes to inform the user of the following.


General information about cookies

When you access www.crowdmapping.eu the site, or one of the sites that manage embedded content, may set or read cookies and/or other types of identifiers about the browser and/or the device you are using.

A cookie is a small text file stored on the computer of someone browsing a website in order to record some information related to the visit and to create a system to recognize the user even at a later time. The identifiers of the devices, instead, are generated by collecting and processing some information such as the IP address and/or the user-agent (browser version, type and version of the operating system) or other device features, again in order to connect some stored data to a specific user.

A website can set a cookie on the browser only if the user preferences allow it. It is important to know that a browser can allow a specific website to access only its own cookies and not those set by other websites: regarding this, there is no risk for your privacy.


Practices related to cookies and other similar technologies

This site or one of those managing embedded content may use cookies or other types of identifiers for several reasons, including:

  • Provide access to reserved areas of the site and to authentication (in this case cookies are called "technical" and are used to maintain the browsing session and/or facilitate later access from the same device).
  • Track user preferences while browsing the site and/or using embedded/connected services.
  • Provide advertising and/or content relevant to visitors' interests ("third-party cookies" only).
  • Process statistical analysis (analytics) about the use of the site and/or embedded services.
  • Carry out research to improve contents, products and provided services.

www.crowdmapping.eu DOES NOT directly use any profiling cookies : the only cookies directly generated and managed by crowdmapping.eu are the so-called "technical cookies" (which are exclusively used to provide services to the public) and, in an extremely limited way, analytics cookies (which are used to count the number of readings on the various pages of the site and/or for other statistical purposes). However, we inform users that through our pages could be generated profiling cookies by third parties (Ref. "Third party cookies").


Third party cookies

crowdmapping.eu integrates within its pages third-party services that may set and use their own cookies and/or similar technologies. The use of these cookies and similar technologies by these companies is governed by these companies' privacy policies and not by this cookie policy since crowdmapping.eu is totally unrelated to the management of these tools and to the processing of data deriving from them.

Below is a (non-exhaustive) list of some of the partners companies who may use cookies while browsing the site www.crowdmapping.eu:

In case of doubts or warnings regarding the use of cookies you can contact us at info@crowdmapping.eu.
