Dear Visitor/Visitor (hereinafter referred to as “You” or the “User“)
Since cookies are used on our Site for various purposes, we would like to explain in this notice (hereinafter, the “Cookie Notice“) what cookies are and how they are used on the Site.
Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send directly to his/her terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then transmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits (so-called first-party cookies). While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers on his terminal (so-called third-party cookies); this happens because on the website visited there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains residing on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, they are those cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting.
Cookies can have a lifetime limited to a single browser session (session cookies), in which case they are automatically deactivated when the user closes the browser; or they can have a predetermined expiry date, in which case they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until that expiry date, continuing to collect information over the course of several browser sessions (permanent cookies).
Cookies are used for different functions. Some are necessary to enable you to browse the Site and take advantage of its features (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether aggregated or not, about the number of users accessing the Site and how the Site is used (so-called tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to trace your consumer profile and display advertisements on the Site that may be of interest to you, as they are consistent with your tastes and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).
Technical cookies are used on the Site for the sole purpose of making it possible for you to browse the Site and to use its functionalities. These cookies are always first party cookies, as they are placed directly by us on the Site.
Some technical cookies are necessary in order to provide you with an optimal browsing experience or to allow you to authenticate yourself on the Site, for example in order to make a purchase on the Site or enter your private area (so-called navigation cookies). Browsing cookies are normally session cookies and are therefore automatically deactivated once you close your browser.
Other technical cookies are useful for allowing you to store certain preferences (e.g. language or country of origin) without having to reset them on subsequent visits (so-called functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, as they remain stored on your computer even after you close your browser, until their expiry date or until you decide to delete them.
In accordance with current privacy legislation, your prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies. You are of course free to block the installation of technical cookies by changing the settings of your browser (read paragraph E, no. 1 to find out how to do this). Please note, however, that by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently deleting them, your ability to access the Site, to use all or part of it, to enable or disable certain functions or to receive certain services may be wholly or partly impaired.
Analytics cookies are used on the Site to collect statistical information, in aggregate or otherwise, about the number of users accessing the Site and how they visit the Site.
The analytics cookies on this Site are third party cookies, as they are not directly conveyed by us but by third parties. They are not, therefore, installed directly by the Owner but by third parties.
Some third-party analytics cookies are installed on the Site without your prior consent, because they are less invasive as they are anonymised and the third parties cannot access disaggregated analytics data at IP address level (in other words, by using these cookies, the third parties cannot trace your identity).
Other third-party analytics cookies are, on the other hand, installed on the Site only with your prior consent, because they are not anonymised, as third parties can access disaggregated analytics data at IP address level (in other words, by using these cookies, third parties could theoretically trace your identity through your IP address)
You are of course free to block the installation of analytics cookies at any time, without your ability to visit the Site and enjoy its contents being affected in any way. To find out how to do this, please read the third party cookie policies carefully by following the links in the table above.
Profiling cookies are used to create a user profile of you, based on the preferences and tastes you have shown while surfing the Internet, and to display advertisements consistent with your profile. In this way, the advertisements you see on our Site may be of greater interest to you.
You are, of course, free to block the installation of profiling cookies at any time, without your ability to visit the Site and enjoy its contents being affected in any way. If you decide to deactivate behavioural advertising, it does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising on the Site. However, the banners you see on the Site may not reflect your interests or preferences on the browser you are currently using.
Some of the profiling cookies are installed directly by the Owner (first-party profiling cookies). These cookies are permanent and have a maximum duration of 12 months. Below is a list of the first-party profiling cookies used on the Site, with an indication of the ways in which you can oppose their installation.
To disable these profiling cookies change your browser settings (see paragraph E, no. 1) or use this handy interactive button:
Most profiling cookies, on the other hand, are installed by third parties who act as independent data controllers (third-party cookies). Below is a list of the third-party profiling cookies currently used on the Site, with an indication of the link to the information pages created by their developers.
Some third party cookies are installed by parties with whom we do not have a direct contractual relationship. For this reason, we provide below links to the websites of the entities that act as intermediaries between us and these third parties, where you can find (i) the list of third parties that install profiling cookies on the Site and (ii) links to the privacy policies of these third parties, where you can find all the necessary information on their profiling cookies and on how to opt-out of their installation.
There are several options to manage, disable and delete cookies.
(1) Change your browser settings
Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the browser you use to find out how to manage, disable or delete all cookies (technical, analytics and profiling):
Make your choices carefully. By indiscriminately blocking the receipt of all cookies, including technical cookies, without providing a specific exception for the Site, you may no longer be able to browse the Site or use some or all of its features. In addition, if you delete all cookies from your browser, technical cookies may also be removed and, therefore, you may no longer be able to remove the preferences that you have set when using the Site or you may no longer be able to find the products or services in your shopping cart.
(2) Use our interactive tools or those provided by third parties
To disable third party cookies, please consult the privacy policies of third parties that install analytics cookies (see paragraph C above) or profiling cookies (see paragraph D above) to learn about the other tools available to you to manage, disable and delete cookies, and more generally to object to their use. Remember that by disabling third party cookies, (i) you object to their use not only on the Site but on all Internet sites on which they are used and (ii) your ability to browse the Site and use its features will not be affected in any way. When you disable third party cookies you will still see the banner on the home page of the Site relating to cookies; however, if you close the banner, scroll down the home page or click on any element of the home page other than the banner, you will not receive any third party cookies that you have properly disabled.
(3) Use the Internet site www.youronlinechoices.eu/it/
Your Online Choices is an Internet site managed by the non-profit association European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA), whose version in Italian can be reached at www.youronlinechoices.eu/it/, which provides information on behavioural advertising based on profiling cookies (https://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/a-proposito) and allows Internet users to easily oppose (opt-out) the installation of the main profiling cookies installed by advertising operators and used on Internet sites (https://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/le-tue-scelte). Before using this tool, we advise you to carefully read the general terms of service of the Your Online Choices website (https://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/condizioni-generali-di-servizio), the frequently asked questions (FAQ) (https://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/faqs) and the user guide (https://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/help).
Some of our employees and contractors, appointed by us as processors, may perform maintenance work on the computer systems that host your data, without ever being able to access their actual content. Your personal data may be stored on servers managed by third parties (e.g. suppliers of IT systems) or may be managed by subjects specialised in online advertising, who act as external processors on the basis of a specific written appointment by the Controller. We inform you that, in compliance with the conditions and guarantees established by the Regulation, your data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area, which may not offer a level of privacy and personal data protection comparable to that guaranteed by Italian and European privacy laws, but as the Controller we will take data security into utmost consideration, therefore we will proceed in managing such transfers with all due precautions and guarantees. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third party data controllers or disseminated.
Pursuant to the Regulation, the Data Controller informs that Users have the right to obtain information on:
(i) the origin of the personal data;
(ii) the purposes and methods of the processing
(iii) the logic applied in case of processing carried out with the aid of electronic instruments
(iv) the identification data concerning data controller and data processors;
(v) the entities or categories of entity to whom or which the personal data may be communicated or who or which may get to know said data in their capacity as data processors or persons in charge of the processing.
Furthermore, Users have the right to obtain:
a) access, updating, rectification or, where interested therein, integration of the data;
b) the cancellation, transformation into anonymous form or blocking of data processed unlawfully, including data whose retention is unnecessary for the purposes for which the data were collected or subsequently processed
c) certification to the effect that the operations as per letters a) and b) have been notified, as also related to their contents, to the entities to whom or which the data were communicated or disseminated, unless this requirement proves impossible or involves a manifestly disproportionate effort compared with the right that is to be protected.
In addition, Users have:
(a) the right to withdraw consent at any time, if the processing is based on their consent;
(b) (where applicable) the right to data portability (the right to receive all personal data concerning them in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format), the right to restriction of processing of personal data and the right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten‘)
(c) the right to object:
(i) in whole or in part, on legitimate grounds, to the processing of personal data concerning them, even though they are relevant to the purpose of the collection;
ii) in whole or in part, to the processing of personal data concerning them for the purpose of sending advertising materials or direct selling or for the performance of market or commercial communication surveys;
iii) qualora i dati personali siano trattati per finalità di marketing diretto, in qualsiasi momento, al trattamento dei Suoi dati effettuato per tale finalità, compresa la profilazione nella misura in cui sia connessa a tale marketing diretto;
(d) if they consider that processing concerning them is in breach of the Regulation, the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (in the Member State in which they have their habitual residence, in the Member State in which they work, or in the Member State in which the alleged breach occurred).
The Italian supervisory authority is the Garante per la protezione dei dati personali, based in Piazza Venezia 11, 00186 – Roma (https://www.garanteprivacy.it/).
