Types of cookies used
This type of cookies allows some sections of the Website to work correctly. This Internet Website only uses technical cookies, that is those used only for the purposes of the “transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or User to provide the service” (cf. section 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
They are not used for any further purpose and are normally directly installed by the data controller or by the Website manager.
They may be split into surfing or session cookies, which ensure the normal surfing and use of the Website (allowing, for instance, to make a purchase or to authenticate to have access to restricted areas);
- analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies if used directly by the Website manager to collect information, jointly, on the number of users and on how they visit the Website;
- feature cookies, which allow the User to surf based on a series of selected criteria (for instance, language, selected products for the purchase) in order to improve the service supplied to the User.
The Users’ prior consent is not requested to install such cookies, however, notwithstanding the obligation to make the disclosure under section 13 of the Code, which the Website manager may supply, should the latter use such devices only, as the Website manager may deem more expedient.
The acquisition and processing of data resulting from the use of technical cookies is compulsory for looking at the Website. Should the User object, it will not be possible to fully and correctly look at the Website. Save for technical cookies, the general rule for “Filing the information on the terminal of a contracting party or of a user, or the access to information already filed” still remains that of the User’s prior and informed consent (opt-in). This means that all cookies which may not be defined as “technical” and which therefore show greater criticalities from the point of view of the protection of the Users’ private sphere such as, for instance, those used for profiling and marketing purposes, may not be installed on the Users’ terminals if they have not been first properly informed and they have not given the relevant valid consent to said extent.
