startupobservatory.com’s Cookie Policy

This document contains information about the technologies that enable this Website to achieve the following purposes. These technologies allow the Owner to collect and save information (for example through the use of cookies) or to use resources (for example by running a script) on the User’s device when the latter interacts with this Website.

For simplicity, in this document these technologies are succinctly referred to as “Tracking Tools”, unless there is reason to differentiate.
For example, although cookies can be used in both web and mobile browsers, it would be inappropriate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile applications, since they are tracking tools that require the presence of a browser. For this reason, within this document the cookie theme is used only to specifically indicate that particular type of Tracking Tool.

Some of the purposes for which Tracking Tools are used may also require your consent. If consent is granted, it can be freely revoked at any time by following the instructions in this document.

This Website uses Tracking Tools managed directly by the Holder (commonly referred to as “first-party” tracking tools) and Tracking Tools that enable third-party services (commonly referred to as “third-party” tracking tools). Unless otherwise specified within this document, those third parties have access to their respective Tracking Tools.
The duration and expiration of cookies and other similar Tracking Tools may vary depending on what is set by the Holder or by each third-party vendor. Some of them expire at the end of your browsing session.
In addition to the description of each of the categories below, Users can obtain more detailed and up-to-date information about the duration, as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Tracking Tools – in the privacy policies of their third-party providers (via the links made available) or by contacting the Holder.
