What are cookies (and similar technologies)

Cookies are small text files that websites visited by the user set in their terminal – computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc. – where they are stored, to be later sent back to the website on the next visit by the same user. Navigating this Website, you might receive both cookies directly sent by our Website and managed by us, or cookies sent from different websites or web servers, and managed by third parties (third-party cookies.) The Italian legislation (art. 122, D.Lgs. 196/03) implements an EU Directive that requires the websites that use cookies or other monitoring technologies to inform the user about the typology of any cookies used by the website. The Deliberation by the Authority for the Protection of Personal Data, n. 229, May 8, 2014, published on the Official Gazette n. 126, June 3, 2014, divided cookies in two macro-categories: “technical” cookies, and “profiling” cookies. This website uses no profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “effecting the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or in as much as strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service, explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service” (art. 122, comma 1, of the Code). They are not used for any further purpose and are normally directly installed by the website owner or manager. They can be divided in navigation or session cookies, which guarantees normal navigation in and use of the Website (e.g. allowing to complete a purchase or authenticate for access to reserved areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where directly used by the website owner to collect information, in non-aggregated form, on the number of users and on how they visit the website itself; functionality cookies, that allow the user to navigate in function of a series of selected criteria (e.g., the language, the product selected for purchase) in order to improve the service. The installation of such cookies, as specified in the Document n. 2152939 by the Privacy Authority, does not require the previous and informed consent by the user (opt-in), whereas the obligation remains to inform the user in compliance with the art. 13 of the Code, and to offer simple ways to avoid installation (opt-out).

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are aimed at creating a profile of the user and are used for the purpose of sending advertising messages in line with the preferencesshown by the user when navigating on the Web. In reason of the invasiveness that such systems might have in the users’ privacy, the European and Italian laws require that the user be adequately informed concerning their use and express their informed consent. To this typology of cookies does art. 122 of the Code refers, whereas it provides that “the archiving of information in terminal device of a contracting party or user, or access to the information already archived, are allowed solely under the condition that the contracting party or user has expressed their consent after having been informed with the simplified modalityas per article 13, comma 3” (art. 122, comma 1, of the Code).
