The computer systems and the software procedures used to operate this Site, during their normal operation, acquire some technical data: IP address; domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Site; identifier, brand, model and other parameters relating to the operating system of the device; the code indicating the status of the response given by the server, type of browser, the identifier of the individual session with timestamps of the beginning and the end of the browsing session, possible identifier of the account and of the activities carried out on the Site, etc..
This data is only used to check that the Site is working properly, for statistical purposes and, subject to consent, for profiling purposes (if applicable). The data itself is stored for a period of time not exceeding the achievement of the purposes for which they are collected or subsequently processed, as well as for the period provided for by law for administrative purposes, the management of complaints, disputes, computer crimes against the Site or criminal proceedings.

2.1 General information on cookies
Cookies are small text strings (file) that websites visited by users send to their devices (usually to browsers or smartphones), where they are stored and then transmitted back to the same sites each time they visit using the same device. In addition, each website may allow the transmission of third-party cookies, i.e. cookies generated by websites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects on it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains).
Depending on their duration, a distinction is made between session cookies (i.e. cookies that are temporary and automatically deleted from the device at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. cookies that remain stored on the device until they expire or are deleted by the user).
Cookies serve several purposes. They are primarily used to carry out the transmission of a communication or to provide the service requested by the user. More specifically, they enable and optimise the operation of the website, perform computer authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the user's browsing experience, for example by maintaining the connection to reserved areas while browsing through the pages of the site without having to re-enter the User ID and password and storing specific information about the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used). They may also be used (anonymously, if third-party) to carry out aggregate analysis on the operation of the site, the number of users and how they visit the site.
The above-mentioned cookies are called technical cookies (their use does not require the user's consent), since without them some of the operations mentioned above could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure.
2.2 Use of first-party cookies on this Site
This Site may use session cookies and persistent cookies.
The types of first-party cookies generated and transmitted by this Site are:
- technical cookies, used for: a) authentication and management of a browsing session (e.g. to identify and validate the user for access to the Restricted Area); b) security purposes (e.g. to take into account the number of failed logins by identifying possible abuses in authentication and preventing fraud); c) customisation of the user interface (e.g. to record the preferences expressed by the user such as language, currency, page display format, connection area); d) better usability of the site and its audio-visual content; e) the proper functioning of the connection (e.g. routing the user’s requests between multiple servers in an appropriate manner)
2.3 Analytics cookies provided by third parties
TIM S.p.A. doesn’t make use of analytics services provided by third parties to collect information and to produce aggregate statistics on the number of users and on how they visit this Site.
2.6 Managing your cookie preferences
Cookies can be managed by the user through their browser.
A) Browser settings
The user/visitor can manage cookie preferences through the functionalities present in common browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), which allow users to delete/remove cookies (all or some) or to change the settings of the browser itself in order to block the sending of cookies or to limit it to specific sites (as opposed to others). It is possible to find out how to configure the browser settings (usually accessible from the 'Tools' bar) by going to the 'Support' web pages of the providers of these browsers (which can also be found using a common search engine).
Disabling cookies does not in itself preclude the use of the Website's services; however, if all cookies, including technical ones, are deleted/blocked, some operations cannot be performed or will be more complex and/or less secure, such as, performing activities within the website's Restricted Areas (in fact, cookies make it possible to carry out and maintain user identification during the session).
