Technologies similar to cookies

As in the case of many websites, we use technologies similar to cookies, including local shared objects (also known as "flash cookies"), the analysis of browser history, browser fingerprints and pixel tags (also known as " web beacon "). These technologies provide us and our suppliers with information on how the site and its content are used by visitors, and allow us to identify whether the computer or device has visited our or other sites in the past. Our servers automatically collect the user's IP address; in this way, we can associate this address with the name of the user domain or that of its Internet Provider. We may also collect some "clickstream data" relating to the use of the site. The clickstream data includes, for example, information relating to the computer or user device, the browser and the operating system and related settings, the page of origin, the pages and contents displayed or clicked during the visit in addition to the times and methods of such operations, the downloaded elements, the site visited after ours, and any search term entered on our site or on a redirect site.
