Information on the use of cookies

DIRECTIVE 2009/136/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 25 November 2009 approved in Italy by Legislative Decree 69/2012 and 70/2012 | Provision of the Privacy Guarantor n.229/2014

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being retransmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. During navigation on a site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same is visiting. The use of cookies is aimed at facilitating the navigation of the site.

Cookies can be completely deactivated by the browser using the appropriate function provided in most navigation programs. It is good to know, however, that by disabling cookies some of the features of the site may not be usable.

The user who does not agree with the use of cookies is kindly requested to leave this site. Continuing to browse is equivalent to an explicit consent to the use of cookies.

The site
is made with Prestashop and the reference cookies are technical. It also uses third-party profiling cookies or Google Analytics (detects navigation data), social buttons of social networks, Google apis, images.

Taken from the Provision of the Privacy Guarantor n. 229/2014

a. Technical cookies.

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service" (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of users is not required, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, which the site manager, if he uses only these devices, can provide in the manner he deems most appropriate.

b. Profiling cookies.

Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net. Due to the particular invasiveness that these devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and thus express their valid consent.

To them refers art. 122 of the Code where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is allowed only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after being informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3" (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

Taken from the Provision of the Privacy Guarantor n. 229/2014:
<<There are many reasons why it is not possible to place the obligation on the publisher to provide the information and acquire consent to the installation of cookies on its site even for those installed by "third parties".

In the first place, the publisher should always have the tools and the economic-legal capacity to take charge of the obligations of the third parties and should therefore also be able to verify from time to time the correspondence between what is declared by the third parties and the purposes they really pursue with the use of cookies. This is made very difficult by the fact that the publisher often does not directly know all the third parties that install cookies through its site and, therefore, not even the logic underlying the related treatments. In addition, it is not uncommon for the publisher and third parties to stand in the way of subjects who play the role of concessionaires, resulting in fact very complex for the publisher to control the activity of all the subjects involved.

Third-party cookies could, then, be modified over time by third party suppliers and it would be not very functional to ask publishers to keep track of these subsequent changes.

It should also be taken into account that publishers, which also include individuals and small businesses, are often the "weakest" part of the relationship. Where, on the other hand, third parties are usually large companies characterized by considerable economic weight, they normally serve a plurality of publishers and can be, compared to the single publisher, also very numerous.

It is therefore considered that, also because of the reasons indicated above, the publisher cannot be obliged to insert on the home page of his site also the text of the information relating to the cookies installed through him by third parties.>>
