COOKIE POLICY

1. What are cookies?

The website https://elearning.odxeducation.com/ (hereinafter the “Website”) uses “cookies”: these are text files which are sent from a web server (which is the computer on which the Website visited is running) to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and memorized on the hard disk of the user’s computer when visiting the Website. The cookie allows the Website to identify the user’s PC (by way of the information memorized therein) each time that the user reconnects to the Website using the same PC. 

By using cookies we can make it easier for the user to browse the Website. 

Cookies do not collect information that directly identify the user. Indeed, odX Education S.r.l. (hereinafter the “odX”), owner and administrator of the Website, cannot track any personal information that directly identifies the user using the cookies (e.g. name, surname) unless such data are directly provided for by the user. Moreover, another website cannot use a cookie sent by the odX’s Website to access information contained in the user’s computer. Once saved in the computer, cookies can only be read by the Website that created them (and therefore, in our case, by https://elearning.odxeducation.com/).

2. What type of cookies does odX use? 

Technical and analytical cookies

These are the cookies used with the aim of enabling browsing and therefore the electronic transmission of data on the net, or strictly necessary to provide the services granted by the Website. These are generally temporary cookies, the so-called "session cookies." They are issued by the Website on the user’s computer during browsing but are only memorized for the duration of the browsing session. This means that when the user closes the browser, the cookies are erased automatically and disappear, and do not remain memorized on the computer. They are formed by random numbers generated by the server and are used to help ensure that the Website can be browsed safely and efficiently.

This kind of cookies make it easier for the user to browse the Website, for example by remembering the data the user has provided when filling in forms on the Website (so-called “user input cookies”), recognizing the user after logging into the Website (so-called “authentication cookies”), customizing the interface of the Website on the basis of the preferences indicated by the user, to gather bulk information on the number of visitors to the Website and on the most visited pages (“cookies analytics”), etc.

These cookies do not require the user’s prior explicit consent as they strictly necessary for the purposes of supplying the service requested by the user of the Website (ex art. 6, par.1, lett. b) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, hereinafter the “GDPR”).

Profiling cookies

These are the cookies aimed at creating users’ profiles, for example for the purpose of sending advertising that are consistent/customized on the basis of the users’ preferences: these cookies are issued by the Website on the user’s computer during browsing, and are also memorized beyond the duration of the browsing session, until they expire or are erased by the user (so called “permanent cookies”).

Tracking pixels

In addition to the categories of cookies described above, our Website also uses tracking pixels (also called “1x1 pixel” or “pixel tag”), a graphic with dimensions of 1x1 pixels that are loaded when a user visits our Website or opens one of our e-mails.

This information is meant for statistical purposes in relation to (i) the number of different users of our Website, (ii) the number and types of pages visited, as well as (iii) the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.

Blocking cookies will not automatically block the information being sent through our tracking pixels but you can block the sending of this information through your browser settings, by amending your firewall settings and the use of some browser extensions. However, these actions may affect your experience of using our website.
