Identification of simplified methods for information and the acquisition of consent for cookie use
A cookie is a small text file created on the user’s computer when the user accesses a particular site, for the purpose of storing and transporting information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer on which the visited website is running) to the user’s browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the user’s device; they are then redirected to the website on subsequent visits. During navigation, the user may also receive on his device cookies from different sites (so-called “third party” cookies) set directly by the operators of these websites and used for the purposes and in the manner defined by them.
Types of cookie
The www.fmsi.ngo website uses technical cookies (navigation and session cookies) and includes some services provided by third parties that generate cookies stored on the user’s computer such as:
– Facebook and Instagram are used to share portal content on social networking sites. To view the technical characteristics of this service and the specifications regarding privacy, please refer to the information on the respective sites.
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available on subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent cookies and their duration is fixed by the server when they are created. In some cases, an expiry date is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using its own browser settings.
Please note that disabling all or part of technical cookies may compromise the optimal use of the site.
Disabling “third party” cookies in no way affects navigability
The settings can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, browsers allow the user to define different settings for “own” and “third party” cookies. For example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their cancellation. On the Internet you can easily find the documentation on how to set the rules for the management of cookies for your browser, for example some links related to the main browsers are listed below:
