Cookie Policy

Policy regarding the use of cookies on the Website

When the User accesses or interacts with the Website (‘Website’) and the services provided on it, we or our authorised service providers, such as Eni Spa, who have been duly appointed as Data Controllers, may use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies for advertising purposes and to store information to provide our users with a better, faster and more secure experience. 
This page aims to provide further information on the technologies adopted and how they are used on the Website and in our services and tools. A summary is provided below of some essential aspects to be aware of regarding the use of these technologies and the full text of our Cookie Policy.

Our cookies and similar technologies have various functions. They are used to ensure the functioning of our services and allow us to improve performance, offer additional features, or offer advertising that is targeted or in line with the User’s interests. We use cookies and similar technologies that remain on the device only for the duration of the browser session (session cookies) or for a more extended period (permanent cookies). The User can block, delete or deactivate them if their device permits. The User can manage cookies and cookie preferences via their device or browser settings. 
Where possible, security measures are implemented to prevent unauthorised access to cookies and similar technologies. A unique code guarantees that only we and/or our authorised service providers can access cookie data. Eni Rewind S.p.A is the Data Controller for processing the User’s data concerning cookies issued directly by us. For processing activities relating to cookies issued by third parties, each third party is an independent Data Controller. 
The service providers are companies that support us in various aspects of our business, such as operations, advertising services and website tools. We use our authorised service providers to show the User advertising in line with their interests, our services and on other web pages. These service providers may place cookies on the User’s device via our services (third-party cookies). They can also obtain information that allows them to identify the User’s device, such as its IP address or other unique or device-specific codes. 
The information that has to appear on websites that use cookies is provided below.


What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies

Like most websites, we use small data files saved on the User’s computer, tablet, mobile phone, or another mobile device (referred to collectively as ‘device') to record specific data each time the User accesses or interacts with the Website, services and tools. The specific names and types of cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies may change over time. To give the User a better understanding of the policy and the use of these technologies, some terms are provided below with their definitions : 
Cookies: small text files (usually comprising letters and numbers) that are saved in the browser or device memory when the User visits a site or views a message.  Cookies allow a site to recognise a particular device or browser. There are various types of cookies:

o   Session cookies expire at the end of the browser session and allow us to link together the User’s actions during that specific session

o   Permanent cookies stay saved on the User’s device even after the end of the browser session and make it possible to remember their preferences or actions on multiple websites.

o   First-party cookies are set by the website that the User is visiting.

o   Third-party cookies are set by a website other than the website the User is visiting.

Cookies can be disabled or removed using the tools available in most browsers. Cookie preferences have to be set separately for each browser used, as each of them offers specific features and options. 
Web beacon: small images, also known as ‘pixel tags’ or ‘clear GIFs', which we may include in our websites, services, apps, messages and tools. They generally work with cookies to identify our users and their activities. 
Similar Technologies: technologies that store data in the browser or device using locally shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other software methods for web applications. These technologies work in all browsers. In some cases, the use of local storage cannot be fully managed through browsers and has to take place using specific tools. We do not use these technologies to store information for creating targeted advertisements on our or other websites. 

The terms ‘cookies’ and ‘similar technologies’ can be used interchangeably in this policy, referring to all the technologies used to store data in the User’s browser or device or to technologies that collect data or which enable them to be identified as described above.

Certain features, services and tools on the Website are only available through the use of these technologies. The User can always block, delete, or disable them if their browser, installed app, or device allows. However, if the User rejects cookies or other similar technologies, they may not be able to take advantage of certain features, services, apps or tools on the Website. The Website may require the User to re-enter their password several times during a session. When the User first accesses the Website – and in any case, until they have expressed their choice – we give them the option of whether or not to allow the use of cookies.  Specifically, by clicking on OK or X, the User will consent to the use of cookies. For more information on blocking, deleting or disabling these technologies, the User can refer to their device or browser settings.

Where applicable, we protect cookies and other similar technologies to ensure that only we and/or our authorised service providers can interpret them by assigning them a unique code. The User’s data is not stored in cookies or other similar technologies used. 

All personal information acquired and stored through these technologies is obtained only after notifying the User and requesting their express and deliberate consent. We obtain the User’s consent by clearly informing them of the use of the technologies and allowing them to disable them, as described above. 
The uses of these technologies fall into the following general categories: 
1. Operationally necessary use 
The use of cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies may be necessary for websites, services, apps and tools.

We may use cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies to evaluate the performance of our websites, apps, tools and services, including as part of our analyses to understand how visitors use our websites, to determine whether they have interacted with our messaging system or viewed an item or link, or to improve the content, apps, services or tools on the Website.

By rejecting first-party and third-party advertising cookies and web beacons, as set forth below, the User will still see our advertising.
