Cookie types and purposes of the processing

Technical cookies

  • Transient or session cookies

The use of so-called session cookies – temporary cookies, which are not stored on the user's computer, but disappear when the browser is closed – is strictly limited in this case to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of numbers randomly generated by the server) in order to enable the site to be explored securely and efficiently.

In effect, during their normal operation the computer systems and software procedures that enable this site to function acquire personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of the Internet communication protocols, as well as necessary for browsing.

We remind you that such cookies are strictly necessary to ensure normal browsing and use of the website; therefore, they cannot be disabled. Thus, if you choose to continue browsing the site, such cookies will necessarily be installed.

  • Functional cookies

These cookies help E.ON Italia to optimize users' visits to our website, recording their technical choices (for example, the language preferred, a newsletter, etc.) and visualizing the most pertinent services and offers. If you want to consult E.ON Italia's site, we advise you to enable these cookies on your computer, tablet, or cell phone. Otherwise, you may disable the cookies directly on your browser (see below). If the cookies are disabled, however, we may not be able to ensure that your visit to our site will take place in optimal fashion.

The so-called session cookies used on this site enable us to avoid the utilization of other information-processing techniques, which could prejudice the privacy of users' browsing, and do not allow the acquisition of personal data that identify the user.

  • Cookie analytics

When users access E.ON Italia's site, some general information about them is collected automatically – that is, without any registration process – and may not regard only a single individual. This automatic collection takes place via:
- a truncated, and thus anonymous, IP address (truncation precludes the possibility of linkage to an individual person)
- the referrer (last website visited)
- the pages visited on the site
- the names of the files accessed
- the date and time of access
- the operating system and browser version of your computer.

This information is used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, content, and functionality of the site by aggregating similar browsing behaviors only for the purpose of acquiring anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and checking that it is functioning properly. To do this, we use the IBM NetInsight and Google Analytics software, whose cookies allow us to track the interaction of users with our site. The data collected are not used to profile individual users.

The www.eon-italia.com website will remain fully usable even if you decide to disable the tracking function, as described below.
