Cookie policy

Our Cookie Policy aims to describe the types of cookies used by the website www.nexiant.ch (hereinafter referred to as the “Site”), the purposes of the installed cookies, and the ways in which users can select or deselect the cookies on the Site that make use of the offered services.

We use cookies to make our Site more user-friendly and intuitive. The data collected through cookies is used to make the browsing experience more enjoyable and efficient in the future.

  1. What are Cookies? Cookies, as defined by the Garante Authority (Italian Data Protection Authority), are small text strings that the applications visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored and then transmitted back to the same applications during the user’s subsequent visits.

The term “cookies” refers both to cookies themselves and to all similar technologies.

Cookies are used to access online services more quickly and to improve the user’s navigation experience through session tracking, storing user information, faster loading of content, etc.

  1. Types of Cookies Cookies can be classified as: First-party cookies: These are proprietary cookies used by the owner of the Site to allow the user to browse more efficiently and/or to monitor their actions. Third-party cookies: These are cookies set by a different website than the one currently being visited, in order to allow the user to browse more efficiently and/or to monitor their actions.

Furthermore, there are different types of cookies: Technical Cookies: These are used solely for the purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide that service” (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). Technical cookies include:

  • Session or Navigation Cookies: These are used to track user activity online. They ensure the normal browsing and use of the Site, allowing, for example, faster navigation, making a purchase, or authenticating to access restricted areas. They are necessary for the proper functioning of the Site.
  • Functionality Cookies: These allow the user to navigate based on a set of selected criteria (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
  • First-party Analytical Cookies: These are considered, from a regulatory perspective, as technical cookies if used directly by the owner of the Site without profiling the user, but only to collect aggregated and anonymous information about the number of users and how they visit the Site for statistical purposes and to improve Site performance.
  • Third-party Analytical Cookies: These are provided by third parties and are considered technical cookies if the third parties do not profile the user through the use of tools that reduce the identifying power of the cookies (e.g., by masking significant portions of the IP address) and without combining the collected information with other data they already have.

For technical cookies, only the release of the Cookie Policy is required without the need to obtain consent (Article 13 of the Privacy Code).

Profiling Cookies: These are used to track the user’s web browsing and create a profile of their habits:

  • First-party Profiling Cookies: Installed by the owner of the Site to create user profiles for the purpose of sending targeted advertising messages based on preferences expressed during online browsing. Due to their particular invasiveness into users’ privacy, European and Italian regulations require that users be adequately informed about their use, provide their consent, and that notification be made to the Privacy Authority.
  • Third-party Profiling Cookies: Used by third parties who access the information in clear, non-anonymous, and aggregated mode and combine it with other data they already possess. The Site does not have direct control over individual third-party cookies and cannot directly install or delete them. Users are therefore invited to verify the relevant cookie information on the third-party website. For such cookies, regulations require that users be adequately informed about their use, provide their consent, and that the data user notifies the Privacy Authority.
