On June 3, 2015, the so-called "COOKIE LAW" comes into force in Italy, in accordance with what was established in the provision of the Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante per la protezione dei dati personali) for the protection of personal data on May 8, 2014, which establishes the "simplified arrangements to provide information and obtain consent regarding cookies".
The initiative of our Privacy Guarantor is a due act of adaptation of the Italian legislation to the provisions of the European headquarters: the cookie law, in fact, is a provision born at Community level (directive 2009/136 / CE) with the aim of stem the spread of so-called profiling cookies and related risks for the privacy of Internet users.
What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user´s terminal equipment (usually to the user´s browser) by visited websites; they are stored in the user´s terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user´s subsequent visits to those websites. When navigating a website, a user may happen to receive cookies from other websites or web servers, which are the so-called "third party" cookies. This happens because the visited website may contain items such as images, maps, sound files, links to individual web pages on different domains that are located on servers other than the one where the page being visited is stored.
Types of cookies based on the purpose: technical and profiling cookies
The Italian Data Protection Authority established that cookies may be distinguished into two major group: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies.
a. Technical Cookies
Technical cookies are those used exclusively with a view to "carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service.". They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the data controller or the website manager.
They can be grouped into browsing or session cookies, which allow users to navigate and use a website; analytics cookies, which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website; functional cookies, which allow users to navigate as a function of certain pre-determined criteria such as language or products to be purchased so as to improve the quality of service.
Users´ prior consent is not necessary to install these cookies, whilst information under Section 13 of the code has to be provided in the manner considered to be most appropriate by the website manager – if only such cookies are relied upon.
a. Profiling Cookies
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles. They are used to send ads messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation. In the light of the highly invasive nature of these cookies vis-à-vis users´ private sphere, Italian and European legislation requires users to be informed appropriately on their use so as to give their valid consent.
Types of cookies based on the ownership: Publishers and "Third Parties"
An additional element to be taken into account in order to put this issue against the appropriate backdrop has to do with the entities involved. That is to say, account should be taken of the entity installing cookies on the user´s terminal, which may be the manager of the website visited by the user – which can be referred to as the "publisher" for the sake of convenience – or the manager of another website that installs the cookies by way of the former – which is a so-called "third party".
All cookies used by this site, even by third parties, are identified in the detailed list below.
