Cookies at the University of Trieste

The Protection Authority decision (see text for full definition of the terms) establishes, for the protection of users, that each site must declare what type (purpose) of cookie it uses.

In this respect, we confirm that, in general, when accessing web pages or services provided by the University of Trieste, i.e. pages with URL ...units.it/..., and unless otherwise and explicitly stated, only technical cookies are used. In the main, the University of Trieste does not produce or publish web pages that employ profiling cookies.

Any possible exception to this policy is clearly marked on each page/service affected by the exception.

Some web pages of the University of Trieste incorporate third-party services. For these pages, the policy followed with respect to cookies is that of the external suppliers of these services.

Some cases in which third-party services are used:

services that allow for interaction with social networks (eg "social plugins") or other external platforms (e.g. viewing Youtube videos, Google Maps);
when the option "in tutto il campus" (in all university web pages) is selected in the University search engine, the Google Indexing Service is used;
in some questionnaires, Google generation services can be used;
when referring to sharing services on the web page.

In all these cases, the cookie policy followed is set and developed by the respective vendor who is external to the University.
