Information about Cookies

Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy applies to the website  (“Website”) controlled and operated by GCF - Generale Costruzioni Ferroviarie S.p.A. whose registered offices are in Viale dell’Oceano Atlantico n. 190 - 00144 ROMA - Italy, Tax Code and VAT no. IT03832621001 (“GCF S.p.A.”)

What are cookies?

Cookies are lines of text stored in small files sent from a website to a web browser used for online browsing from a fixed or mobile device.
They are stored on the computer's hard disk and allow the website to recognise users and store specific information about them to enable or improve the service offered.
They are often useful and even essential as in home banking or e-commerce where they make browsing easier or more secure.

There are different types of cookie. Some are needed to use the Website and others have different purposes such as guaranteeing internal security, performing system administration tasks and statistical analysis, understanding which sections of the Website are more relevant to users or offering a personalised experience on the Website.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are ones used for carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service.

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator.

They can be divided into browsing or session cookies which allow users to browse and use a website (e.g. to purchase items online or verify their identity in order to access reserved areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies, which are used by the website to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website; functional cookies, which allow users to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products chosen for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

Profiling cookies

Another group of cookies consists of profiling cookies which are used to track user browsing and create profiles on preferences, habits, choices, etc.
They are usually used by large portals such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Ebay. For example:
Google Adsense states that it uses profiling cookies; Facebook states that it also uses profiling cookies through external sites that integrate its services; Twitter states that it also uses profiling cookies through external sites that integrate its services.

They potentially invade privacy since they are used to transmit advertising messages to the user's terminal with preferences already expressed by the user during online browsing.

The Garante della Privacy (Italian Data Protection Authority) with general provisions on the use of cookies published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale n. 126 del 3 giugno 2014, has banned the installation of cookies for profiling and marketing purposes by website managers unless users have been notified beforehand and have given their consent. These provisions must be complied with by 2 June 2015.
