Types of cookies used
To be precise, the www.gberardi.com site installs the following cookies:
- the so-called session cookies, the use of which is strictly functional to the optimisation of the use of the Site and is therefore solely suitable for ensuring the best browsing of the Site. The session cookies used by this Internet site do not permit the acquisition of the personal identification data of the user.
- Analytical cookies (specifically Google Analytics), used for exclusively statistical purposes, to analyse which pages are displayed most frequently by the visitors to the site, how long they remained at the site and their geographical area of affiliation.

The Site installs Woopra, used to track the operations made by the user on the Site.
Woopra is an instrument which makes it possible to display the behaviour of the users of the Site in real time. It makes it possible to display the data of the users connected to the site in real time (country, city, IP) and know which page of the Site they are viewing and how long they stayed on it. Woopra furthermore makes it possible to know the history of the actions that the user has performed on the Site. One of the Woopra functions is the user tag. When the user provides their personal data in the forms located on the www.gberardi.com site, Woopra can tag the session of the generic user who from that moment will be recognised by that tag. This way, the user will have a first and last name and the actions they perform on the Site will be tracked.
The installation of this type of cookies requires the consent of the user. The user must express their willingness and should they not make any choice and decide to continue browsing this Site anyway, they will agree to the use of that cookie.
