Cookie policy Open-es platform

When the user visits, logs in or interacts with our web sites, services, apps, tools or messaging systems, we or our authorized service providers may use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies for advertising purposes and to store information in order to offer our users a better, faster and safer user experience.

On this page we aim to provide additional information on the technologies adopted and how they are used on our web sites and in our services, apps and tools. The following is a summary of some important things to know about the use of these technologies and the full Statement on user cookie policy.

Our cookies and similar technologies serve various functions. They help our services to run smoothly, allow us to improve performance, provide additional features or enable us to provide you with advertising that is targeted or in-line with the interests of the user. We use cookies and similar technologies that remain on your device only for the period of activity of the browser (session cookies) or for a longer period (persistent cookies). The user can block them, delete them or disable them if your device allows it. The user can manage cookies and cookie preferences in the device or browser settings.

Where possible, security measures are implemented to prevent unauthorized access to cookies and similar technologies. A unique code ensures that only we and/or our authorized service providers can gain access to the data collected by cookies. With regard to user personal data processing in relation to the cookies placed directly by us, the data controller is Eni. With regard to processing in relation to the cookies placed by third parties, each third party is an independent data controller.

Service providers are companies that support us in various aspects of our activities, dealing, for example, with website operations, services, apps, advertising and tools. We use our authorized service providers to offer the user advertising in line with their interests on our services and other Internet pages. These service providers may place cookies on the user's device via our services (third party cookies). They may also obtain information that allows them to identify the user's device, such as the IP address or other unique or device codes.

Below is the required information that must be included on internet sites that manage cookies

What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies?

Like most websites, we use small data files that are saved on the user's computer, tablet, mobile phone or other mobile device (collectively referred to as "device") to record certain data each time a user logs in or interacts with our websites, services, apps, messaging systems and tools.

The names and the specific types of cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies that are used can change over time. To help you better understand the policy and use of these technologies, here are some terms with their definitions:

Cookies: small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) that are stored in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or view a message. Cookies allow a website to recognize a particular device or browser. There are different types of cookies:

  • Session cookies expire at the end of the browser session and allow us to connect the actions of the user during that specific session.
  • Persistent cookies remain stored on the user's device even after the end of the browser session and allow us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple sites.
  • Proprietary cookies are placed by the website the user is visiting.
  • Third-party cookies are placed by a third-party website that is not the site the user is visiting.

Cookies can be disabled or removed using the tools available in most browsers. Cookie preferences must be set separately for each browser used, since each one 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. Generally, they work with cookies to identify our users and their activities.

Similar technologies: technologies that store data in the browser or device using objects shared or stored locally, 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 handled by the browser, but needs to be managed with special tools. We do not use these technologies to store information useful for creating targeted advertising on our or other websites.

The terms "cookie" and "similar technologies" can be used interchangeably in this policy with reference to all technologies used to store data in the browser or the user's device or to the technologies that collect data or allow the user to be identified as described above.

User choice and the use of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies

Certain website functions, services, apps and tools are available only through the use of these technologies. The user can always block them, delete them or disable them if your browser, installed app or device allows it. However, if the user deactivates cookies or other similar technologies, they may not be able to take advantage of certain website features, services, apps or tools. The site may require the user to re-enter their password repeatedly during a session. When the user initially accesses our website, and, in any case, until they have made a choice, they can choose to allow or disable the use of cookies. In particular, by clicking on OK or X, the user gives its consent to the use of cookies. For more information on how to block, delete, or disable these technologies, see your device or browser settings.

In general, these technologies allow our sites, services, apps and tools to store important information in the user's browser or device, and then use them later to identify the user on our servers or internal systems. Where applicable, we protect cookies and other similar technologies to ensure that only we and/or our authorized service providers can interpret them by assigning them a unique code. The user's personal data is not stored in cookies or other similar technologies.

All personal information collected and stored through the use of these technologies is obtained only after having notified the user and asked for its consent via a positive action. We obtain the consent of the user by informing him/her clearly of the use of technologies and giving him/her the opportunity to turn off these features, as mentioned earlier.

Uses of these technologies fall into the following general categories:

  • Use necessary from the operational point of view. The use of cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies may be necessary for the functioning of websites, services, apps and tools. This includes technologies that allow the user to access websites, services, apps and tools to prevent fraudulent activity and improve security, or to use other functions such as shopping carts, saved searches or similar.
  • Use related to performance. We may use cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies to evaluate the performance of our websites, apps, tools and services, in the context of activity analysis to understand how visitors use our websites, to determine if they have interacted with our messaging system or viewed an item or a link, or to improve website content, apps, services or tools.
  • Use related to functionality. We may use cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies to offer the user advanced features during access to and use of our websites, services, apps or tools. Thanks to these features, we can, for example, identify users who log on to our sites or monitor preferences, interests, or objects viewed earlier, in order to improve the presentation of the content on our sites.
  • Use for advertising or content personalization. With your consent, which must be given through a positive action, we may use, on our sites or on third party sites, our own or third party cookies and web beacons to deliver content, including advertising relevant to your interests. This includes the use of technologies to better assess the usefulness of advertising and content presented to the user, for example by monitoring whether an advertisement has been selected or not.

To disable the use of third party cookies and web beacons related to advertising, see the section "Advertising networks and exchanges operated by third parties" below. After disabling proprietary and third party cookies and web beacons related to advertising, as shown below, the user can still view our advertising, but it will not be targeted to your interests, as it would be if you were using proprietary or third party cookies and web beacons or related technologies.

If you want to deactivate all other types of technologies used on our websites, services, apps or tools, you can do so by blocking them, deleting them or disabling them on your device or browser.

Use of these technologies by third party service providers

We can collaborate with third party companies, generally known as service providers, which are authorized to use cookies, web beacons or similar technologies to store data on our websites or in our services, apps and tools. These service providers allow us to offer our users a better, faster and safer experience on our websites.

These service providers may use these technologies to help us provide users with our content and our advertising, and to create anonymous website statistics and analyses. We do not allow any of our service providers to collect, for their own ends, our users' personal information on our websites or through our services, apps or tools. These service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements signed with us and other legal limitations concerning the use or collection of any personal information. The use of third party cookies is governed by the privacy policies of these third parties.

Except for the use of these technologies by our service providers or other authorized third parties, our websites do not accept any third party content that includes or uses cookies, web beacons, local storage or similar technologies to monitor or collect the user's personal information.

Advertising networks and exchanges operated by third parties

We may use third parties, such as advertising networks and exchanges, to offer our users advertising messages. These third party providers of advertising networks and exchanges may use third party cookies, web beacons or similar technologies to collect information. They may also obtain the device identification code, the IP address or the identifier for advertisers (IDFA). The information obtained by these third parties may be used to allow us to offer the user advertising messages in line with their interests on our sites or elsewhere on the web. The use of third party cookies is governed by the privacy policies of these third parties.
