Prodottistella S.p.a. Cookies Policy
What are the Cookies?
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.
They are used for several purposes ranging from IT authentication to the monitoring of browsing sessions up to the storage of specific information on user configurations in accessing a given server, and so on.
The European Parliament issued a law in May 2011 providing for the obligation to obtain the users' prior informed consent to the installation of cookies for purposes other than those of a merely technical nature – pursuant to EC directive 2009/136. The EU Cookie Law has been approved also in Italy and entered into force the 1st July 2012 (legislative decree No. 69 of 28 May 2012). The Italian Data Protection Authority issued the law nr. 229 dtd 8th May, 2014 that identifies "Simplified Arrangements to Provide Information and Obtain Consent Regarding Cookies".
In order to better understand the cookies used within our webpages, we have to distinguish the so called "technical cookies" form "profiling cookies".
Cookie Tecnici: they are used exclusively with a view to "carrying out the transmission of a communication network, or insofra 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" (see Section 122(1) of the Code). 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 (e.g. to purchase items online or authenticate themselves to access certain sections);
- 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.
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.
These cookies are referred to in Article 122(1) of the Code where it is provided that "Storing information, or accessing information that is already stored, in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user shall only be permitted on condition that the contracting party or user has given his consent after being informed in accordance with the simplified arrangements mentioned in section 13(3)."
Session e Persistent Cookies
Session Cookies contain information used in the current browser session. These cookies are automatically cancelled when the user closes the browser. Nothing is stored in the user's computer after session expiry (ASP.NET_SessionId e language).
Persistent Cookies (like ASPXANONYMOUS) are used to save the information in the period of time passing between one session and the following one to the same site; or they can be used for technical reason and to improve the site navigation. These data allow the site to recognize the user. Persistent cookies can remain stored for a time defined by the website.
