Cookie: definitions, features and applicable law

Cookie are small text files sent/read by websites on your devices, which are then transmitted back to those websites during the next visit. Thanks to cookies websites remember your actions and preferences (such as login data, the default language, font sizes, additional display settings, etc.) so that they do not need to specify them again on the next visit or during browsing activities.

Cookies are used to perform IT authentications, session monitoring, and to store information about the activities of users who access a website, and may also contain a unique identifier that allows for monitoring of user experiences on the site for statistical or advertising purposes.
During the browsing the site, user can also receive on his computer cookies from sites or web servers other than the one he is visiting (c.d. "third-party" cookies). Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are therefore technically necessary for the site to function.

There are indeed various types of cookies, depending on their features and functions, and these may stay on user device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser; and so-called persistent cookies, which remain on your device until a pre-established date.
According to the applicable law in Italy, your prior explicit consent for the use of cookies is not always required. In particular, such consent is not required for “technical cookies”, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, those cookies are necessary for the operation of a website or to perform tasks requested by the user.
Please consider that the Italian Data Protection Authority (i.e. Garante per la protezione dei dati personali) has issued a decision (Decision Simplified Arrangements to Provide Information and Obtain Consent Regarding Cookies - 8 may 2014 and following clarifications, hereinafter the “Decision”) according to which the technical cookies that do not require explicit consent also include:

  • The “analytics 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;
  • The browsing or session cookies (for logging purposes);
  • The 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;
  • “Profiling cookies” are aimed at creating user profiles and they are used to send ads messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation. For these cookies the user shall express explicit consent.

Social Plugin

Many social networks have developed "social plug-in modules", which website operators can integrate into their websites. This allows social networks users to share content with their "friends" (and propose other related features such as posting comments). The Website may include one or more of these social plug-in modules. These plug-ins store and access cookies on the user's computer, allowing social networks to identify their members when they interact with these plug-in. Please note that the aforementioned social plug-in modules can also be used by social networks to provide services that go beyond what is strictly necessary, for example for behavioral advertising. Users should explicitly request these services. You can check the cookie settings on your social media platform.

The user can request, through the website, the saving of such data that will be saved directly by the payment service provider and will not be acquired by the Data Controller and / or by any data processor.
