1 Standards of reference

The standard of reference is the following provision:
Indication of the simplified methods for communicating the Information Note and for obtaining consent for the use of cookies – 8 May 2014 (Published in the Official Journal no. 126 of 3 June 2014)
This is an Information Note addressed, in compliance with (EU) Regulation 2016/679 (the GDPR), to those who visit our website.
We invite you to read this Policy carefully.

2 Preliminary considerations

Cookies are small strings of text that the websites visited by the user send to their terminals (usually to the browser), where they are saved to then be transmitted to the same sites the next time they are visited by the same user. When navigating on a website, the user may also see cookies on the screen that come from different websites or servers ( “third parties”) and on which certain elements reside (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains, etc.) that are present on the site that you are visiting.
There are usually a great many cookies in users’ browsers, which at times persist for a considerable length of time; they are used for various purposes: digital authentication, session monitoring, the memorisation of information on specific configurations regarding the users who access the server, etc.
For the correct management of such devices, it is necessary to distinguish them since they do not have technical features that differentiate them one from another precisely according to the purposes of the subject that uses them.
To this regard, and for the purposes of this provision, we mention two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “proliferation” cookies.

3 Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used only for the transmission of a communication via an electronic communication network, or strictly to the extent necessary to the supplier of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or the user, to provide that service.
They are not used for other purposes and they are usually installed directly by the website holder or manager. They can be: navigation cookies or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or for the authentication of credentials for access to reserved areas); analytic cookies, which are similar to technical cookies, are used directly by the site manager to obtain information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they use the website; or function cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (such as language or products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service offered by the website.

4 Profile cookies

Profile cookies have the purpose of creating user profiles; they are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when navigating on the web. Because these devices can be particularly invasive within the user's private life, European and Italian law requires the user to be adequately informed of their use and to express his/her valid consent.

5 The use of cookies on this website

This website uses only “technical” or “analytic” cookies.
The “technical” cookies are used for the correct functioning of the connection (e.g. to scroll from page to page and for the management of possible links to the different servers used).
This site uses the functions offered by the Google Analytics service. Google Analytics uses its own cookies to collect and analyse information, in an anonymous form, on the behaviour of website users. The information (including the user's IP address) is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to draft reports on internal use, regarding the activities carried out on our website. Google does not associate the IP address to any other data in its possession, nor does it seek to associate an IP address with a user's identity.

6 “Proliferation” and/or “third party” cookies

This site does not use “proliferation” cookies of users who navigate on the site.

7 Why do we use cookies?

Quaestio SGR uses cookies on its website to analyse access to the web pages, to customise information, contents and services, and to guarantee visitors/users quality, reliability and security. In addition, the tracing of the cookies is essential for the use of certain functions and customisations (e.g. the possibility of adding a fund to the “favourites”). By “default” almost all web browsers are configured to automatically accept cookie tracing. However, visitors/users can change the predefined configuration of their browser. But, as already mentioned, if the cookies are disabled or cancelled, this could prevent the optimal functioning of certain areas of the Quaestio SGR website. In any case, if visitors/users wish to decide from time to time to accept or refuse cookies, the browser can be configured so that it generates a notice every time a cookie is saved.

8 Disabling cookies

The predefined settings of the most commonly used browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) accept cookies, but this setting can be changed by the user at any moment. This is true for both PCs and for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones: it is a widespread and generally supported function.
Therefore, cookies can easily be deactivated or disabled by going to the options or preferences of the browser used. Generally only third-party cookies can be blocked. These options are generally effective only for the specific browser and on the specific device, unless there are options available to automatically transfer preferences to other devices. The specific instructions can be found on the browser's own options page or help page. However, if technical cookies are disabled, this can have an effect on the complete and/or correct functioning of the various websites, including this site.
