COOKIE POLICY

Introduction

ASSIST S.r.l. (VAT ID: 16083121000), with its registered office at Via Tacito 26, 00193 Roma (RM) (the “Company”), uses cookies and similar technologies, such as HTML5 Storage or Local Shared Objects (collectively referred to as “cookies”), to record your preferences and to properly configure its website, making navigation even more user-friendly.

Cookie Functions and Usage

Cookies are small text files that are sent to your device (computer, notebook, or mobile phone) by a web server (more precisely, they are stored in your browser’s directory) while you are browsing a web page. We also collect your IP address when you visit our website. This information is used, for example, to allow us, as website operators, to collect statistical information about the use of the website. This enables us to determine whether there has already been a connection between your device and our web pages, or what language or other preferences you have. Cookies may also contain personal data.

Our websites can store session and permanent cookies on the user’s device. The difference between a session cookie and a permanent cookie depends on the duration of the cookie. Session cookies are typically valid for the duration of the current browser session; at the end of the browser session, the session cookie expires. Permanent cookies, on the other hand, are permanent and remain so even after the browser session is closed. This allows for faster and often more convenient access to our websites.

When you use our website, you will be asked within the cookie banner whether you consent to the use of cookies.

However, it is possible to visit our websites without consenting to the use of cookies. This means that you can refuse such use within the cookie banner. Additionally, you can delete cookies at any time by following the respective steps in your browser. Please note that choosing not to use cookies may result in the unavailability or limitation of some functions accessible on our web pages.

We categorize cookies into the following categories:

Necessary Cookies (Type 1)

These cookies are strictly necessary for the proper functioning of the websites. Without these cookies, some services such as the vehicle configurator cannot be provided. If you disable necessary cookies, the functionality of the websites will be compromised.

Functional Cookies (Type 2)

These cookies allow you to improve the comfort and performance of the websites and provide various functions. For example, language settings can be stored in functional cookies.

Performance Cookies (Type 3)

These cookies collect information about how you use our websites. Performance cookies help us determine which areas of our online offering are the most popular and thus improve the services offered. For more information, please refer to the “Data Usage Evaluation” section.

Targeted/Advertising Cookies (Type 4)

Targeted/advertising cookies allow us to collect information about individual users’ use of the website, including whether a user has previously visited the website, which website they came from, overall website usage, and the areas users prefer. This enables us to improve the performance of the website and the user’s experience in using the website. It also allows us to analyze the efficiency of our marketing activities and provide personalized advertising based on your interests. If you disable these cookies, you will not receive a personalized experience.

Third-Party Cookies (Type 5)

These cookies are placed by third parties, such as social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, whose content can be integrated through “social plugins” available on our web pages.

The difference between first-party cookies and third-party cookies relates to the control of the party that manages the cookie. First-party cookies are specific to the website that created them. Their use allows us to provide an efficient service and track visitor behavior patterns on the website. Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are placed on your device by third parties (i.e., not by us). Although we may allow third parties to access the website to place these cookies on users’ devices, we do not control the information provided by the cookies or have access to such data. This information is entirely controlled by these third parties and is subject to their privacy policy. The website may contain links to other websites (so-called third-party websites). The Company does not access or control cookies, web beacons, and other user tracking technologies that may be used by third-party websites that users can access from the website. The Company does not control the content and materials published by or obtained through third-party websites or their respective data processing methods and expressly disclaims any responsibility for such circumstances. Users are required to review the privacy policy of third-party websites accessed through the website and inquire about the applicable conditions for the processing of their personal data.

Disabling, Deleting, or Excluding Cookies

If you do not want or no longer want cookies to be placed on your device by us or by third parties, many of them offer the option to exclude them. Moreover, most web browsers allow at least some control over most cookies through browser settings. You can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser to reject cookies. Existing cookies can also be deleted via the browser.

However, deleting cookies from the browser may remove the preferences you have set for the Company’s website, so it would be advisable to periodically revisit this page to recheck your preferences. Please note that if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use all the features of our websites. In particular, you may have limited access to certain areas or be directed to a different experience.

Use of Analysis Tools

Our goal is to adapt the content of our web pages as precisely as possible to the interests of users and thus improve our offering. Therefore, in order to identify usage preferences and areas of greatest interest on our websites, we use Google Analytics, through which the Company can perform statistical analysis of access/visits to the website. The cookies used serve exclusively statistical purposes and collect information in an aggregated form. Through a pair of cookies, one persistent and the other session-based (expiring when the browser is closed), Google Analytics also records the times of the start and end of the visit to the website.
