Type of data processed and purpose of processing
1. Browsing data, information for accessing authenticated areas and the storage thereof
The computer systems and the software procedures used to operate this Site, during their normal operation,
acquire some data that are implicitly transmitted when using Internet communication protocols.
This data is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its nature it could, even through processing data held by third parties, allow users/visitors to be identified (e.g. IP address, domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Site, identifier, brand and model of the device 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 for statistical purposes and to check that the Site is working properly. The data itself is stored for a maximum of six months, without prejudice to further storage for any investigation of computer crimes against the Site or to meet specific regulatory obligations.
Furthermore, in case of authenticated access to the Site, if any, TIM S.p.A will keep the user's personal data, including the data relating to the logs tracking access and activities carried out in the Authenticated Area of the Site, 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 any complaints, disputes 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 cookies directly generated by this Site owned by TIM S.p.A are:
- technical" cookies , used for: b) authentication and management of a browsing session (e.g. to identify and validate the user for access to the Restricted Area); c) security purposes (e.g. to take into account the number of failed logins by identifying possible abuses in authentication and preventing fraud); d) customisation of the user interface (e.g. to record the preferences expressed by the user such as language, currency, page display format, connection area); e) better usability of the site and its audio-visual content; f) the proper functioning of the connection (e.g. routing the user’s requests between multiple servers in an appropriate manner)
- profiling cookies
, i.e. cookies that enable the collection of information relating to the user experience,
the purchases made and the use of Internet content by users/visitors of this Site in order to identify
consumption habits and thus customise contents and ads, send users/visitors targeted advertising in
line with their preferences, measure the effectiveness of the advertising message and adopt
subsequent commercial strategies. Among the profiling cookies, service personalization cookies cold
be included: they allow the Site to provide features and/or customizations that are not strictly
necessary for its operation but which would improve the use of the service by the user/visitor, such as
personalizing the contents of the Site according to interests of the user/visitor.
Before sending these cookies to the device and, therefore, before starting to process the data for these purposes, TIM S.p.A collects the consent of the user/visitor in the following ways: by clicking on the "Accept" button inside the banner containing the minimal information notice or personalised management of cookie consent via the dedicated panel, which can be reached from inside the banner. If the "X" button in the top right corner of the banner is clicked, the user/visitor will deny consent to all profiling cookies. Consent is tracked by sending a special technical cookie to the browser, which ensures the integrity of choices made and traceability to this Site. TIM S.p.A may assign the installation and management of profiling cookies, for which consent must be collected, to technical suppliers (appointed by Skipsolabs Ltd as Data Processor). In particular entrusting the processing of data by type and purpose, as described in the paragraph “Type of data processed and purpose of processing”.
The user/visitor may object to such processing, in addition to clicking the "X" button in the top right corner of the banner, by accessing the dedicated panel (CMP) through the link available in the footer of each page of the Site's domain or by deleting cookies on their browser/device, as indicated in detail in section 2.6 below.
Unless consent is revoked, the user/visitor may receive promotional messages/content based on their interests until the profiling cookies expire. The aforementioned profiling cookies of TIM S.p.A will be stored on the device for 12 months from the last time the user/visitor browsed this Site. Afterwards, it will be automatically deleted from the device.

2.6 Managing your cookie preferences
Cookies can be managed by the user through their browser
or from this Site.
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).
B) Managing cookie consent on this Site
The user may choose in relation to the profiling cookies sent by this Site via the dedicated panel (CMP)
accessible from the banner, from the link in the footer of each page of the Site domain or by clicking on this
link, in order to:
- revoke all or some of the consent already given. In this case, the Site will update the previously installed cookies indicating consent so that the user, depending on the choices made, is no longer subject to profiling by TIM S.p.A by browsing on this Site. This option does not delete the cookies already stored on your device (technical cookies remain active, while profiling cookies for TIM S.p.A and third parties are "blocked" until they expire), but prevents the storage of further profiling cookies;
- deny consent to profiling cookies (e.g. the user/visitor, upon the first visit to this Site, clicks directly on the 'X' button at the top right of the banner or accesses the dedicated panel (CMP), denying consent to all cookies). In this case, the Site sends a denial-of-service cookie to the user's device, which ensures the integrity of the user's choices and traceability to this Site. Depending on the choices made, this Site does not install profiling cookies on the device and therefore the user will not be subject to profiling by TIM S.p.A and/or third parties by browsing this Site.
