EU Cookie Law
The EU Cookie Law Policy was updated on 12. february 2022.
The EU Cookie Law was approved in Italy with legislative decrees 69/2012 and 70/2012.
This document cancels and completely replaces any document previously published on the subject of cookies.
We also inform you that, in order to provide you with a complete service, our site may contain links to other websites not directly managed by us, for which we cannot be responsible for errors, contents, cookies, publications of illegal moral content, advertisements, banners or files that do not comply with the regulations in force.
New rules may be updated periodically, therefore we invite you to come back to this page to re-read it regularly.
It is in fact the intention of the company to conform its privacy protection policies to the provisions of the “Code”, also to the precautions and procedures that the Guarantor has specified in the published documents.
WHAT COOKIES ARE
Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (be it a PC, a notebook, a smartphone, a tablet; they are usually stored directly on the browser used for navigation), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user (information such as the IP address of a device, the time of viewing, an identifier associated with the browser or device and the type of browser used).
In addition to cookies, other similar tools (web beacons / web bugs, clear GIFs or others) that allow the identification of the user or terminal are also subject to the provision of the Guarantor.
Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes even with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, etc.
While browsing a site, the user can therefore also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images , maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same is visiting.
More generally, some cookies (called session cookies) are assigned to the user’s device only for the duration of access to the site and automatically expire when the browser is closed.
Other cookies (defined as persistent) remain on the device for an extended period of time.
Further information on cookies can be found on www.allaboutcookies.org.
In order to arrive at a correct regulation of these devices, it is necessary to distinguish them given that there are no technical characteristics that differentiate them from each other precisely on the basis of the purposes pursued by those who use them.
Moreover, the same legislator has moved in this direction, which, in implementation of the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136 / EC, has brought back the obligation to acquire the prior and informed consent of users for the installation of cookies used for purposes other than merely technical ones (article N ° 1, paragraph N ° 5, letter a), of the Legislative Decree of May 28, 2012, N ° 69, which modified article N ° 122 of the Code).
A working group was set up under Article N ° 29 of Directive 95/46 / EC.
It is the EU’s independent advisory body for the protection of personal data and privacy, whose tasks are set out in Article N ° 30 of Directive 95/46 / EC and Article N ° 15 of Directive 2002 / 58 / EC.
They were asked for their opinion, in addition to the current regulations, for the determination of the types of cookies (http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/article-29/documentation/opinion-recommendation/files/ 2012 / wp194_en.pdf # h2-8).
A cookie will not damage the user’s computer, and no data that allows personal identification will be stored.
To use all the features of the site, it may be necessary to have cookies enabled.
Browsers are often set to automatically accept cookies.
However, users can change the default configuration, in order to disable or delete cookies (from time to time or once and for all), with the consequence, however, that the use of the site may be precluded.
It is always possible to check the methods and types of cookies stored on your browser by changing its settings.
HOW MANY TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
There are two basic macro-categories, with different characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
A) Technical cookies are generally necessary for the website to function properly and to allow navigation; without them you may not be able to display the pages correctly or to use some services.
For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website, or to memorize the language settings, the display, and so on.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:
1. navigation cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas; remember previous actions while navigating back to a page in the same session, etc. etc.);
2. analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies only when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site (for example, for measuring site performance, with particular attention to the user’s browsing experience, etc. etc.)
3. functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, remembering the settings that a user has applied to a website such as layout, font size, preferences, color and so on, the language, the products selected for purchase; remembering a choice so that it is no longer required to fill in a questionnaire, etc. etc.) in order to improve the service provided.
4. Advertising cookies, these cookies are aimed at providing advertising spaces. These cookies are installed directly or by third parties. Some of them are used to calculate the value of the advertising offer, identify individual advertisements and know which ones have been selected and when. Other advertising cookies, such as behavioral cookies and retargeting cookies, are used to deduce your “profile” as a browser and then propose you advertising messages that comply with your behavior on the net and presumably in line with your interests. This “profile” is anonymous and the information collected through these cookies does not allow to trace your identity.
B) Profiling cookies are more sophisticated.
These cookies are designed to create user profiles, and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net.
Profiling cookies will be activated and used by the site only if the user gives his prior consent to such use.
C) Their classification.
In general, cookies can still be classified as:
1. session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed;
2. persistent cookies, which (unlike session cookies) remain within the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device that connects to the site, facilitating authentication operations for the user.
3. first-party cookies, ie cookies generated and managed directly by the manager of the website on which the user is browsing.
4. third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (as a rule, by virtue of a contract between the website owner and the third party).
Third party cookies
Third-party cookies are also operational on this website, i.e. cookies created by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting.
Based on the provisions of the provision of the privacy guarantor of 8 May 2014, the Data Controller is required to provide the updated link to the information and consent forms of the third parties with whom specific agreements have been stipulated for the installation of cookies through your site.
In particular, users are informed that the website uses the following services that issue cookies:
– on the site there are special “buttons” (called “social buttons / widgets”) that depict the icons of social networks (for example, Facebook, linkedin, etc.). These buttons allow users who are browsing the sites to interact with a “click” directly with the social networks depicted therein. In this case, the social network acquires data relating to the user’s visit, while the Owner will not share any navigation information or user data acquired through its site with social networks accessible through Social buttons / widgets.
