Privacy IPRONA.

Definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send and record on their computer/mobile device, so that they can be then re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit. Thanks to cookies, a website can remember the user’s actions and preferences (such as login details, preferred language, font size, other visual settings, etc.) so that the user doesn’t have to re-indicate them at the next visit of the website, or when browsing to another site. Therefore, cookies are used for authentication purposes, to monitor sessions and to memorize the data regarding user activities when browsing a website. They may contain a personal identification code that makes it possible to track the user’s activities within the website for statistical or advertising purposes. While navigating on a website, the user’s computer may receive cookies from websites or web servers other than those used by the website being visited (so-called “third-party cookies”). Some operations may be impossible to perform without the use of cookies, as in some cases they are vital to the technical functioning of the website.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and they can remain on the user's computer for different periods of time: session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; permanent cookies, which remain on the user's equipment until a pre-established expiry date.

According to applicable Italian legislation, for cookies to be used, it is not always necessary for the website user to express his consent. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e. those used for the sole purpose of completing the transmission of information on an electronic communication network, or to the extent that is strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user – can be used without an express consent of the user. In other words, technical cookies are those which are vital to the website’s function or in order to carry out the user’s requests.

Among the technical cookies, whose use does not require an express consent of the user, the Data protection Authority (see “Provvedimento Individuazione delle modalità semplificate per l'informativa e l'acquisizione del consenso per l'uso dei cookie dell'8 maggio 2014” and fllowing amendment, hereinafter “Provvedimento”) lists the following:

  • analytic cookies, when used directly by the website administrator to gather aggregated statistical information about the number of hits and how users browse the site;
  • navigation or session cookies (for the authentication of users);
  • technical cookies, which allow the user to navigate on the site according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the same user.

For profiling cookies, on the other hand, – i.e. cookies designed to create a profile of the user that is used in order to send commercial messages in line with the preferences shown by said user when surfing the web in general – the express consent of the user must previously be obtained.

Types of cookies used by the Website and option to (de)select

The Website uses the following cookies that may be de-selected (except for the third-party cookies: for such cookies you will have to refer directly to the relative methods of selection and deselection of the respective cookie, for which we provide the relevant links):

  • Navigation or session technical cookies which are strictly necessary either to allow the Website to function or to allow you to access content and avail of the requested services.

  • Functional cookies, i.e. those used to activate specific Website functions as well as a series of selected criteria (for example, language) in order to enhance the service provided.

N.B.: by turning off technical and/or functional cookies, you may render the Website unusable, or certain services or functions provided by the Website may become unavailable or fail to function correctly, therefore forcing you to modify or manually insert certain information or preferences each time you re-visit the Website.

  • Third-party cookies, i.e. cookies from websites and web servers other than IPRONA’s, used for the purposes of the same third parties. We would like to point out that these third parties, listed below with the respective links to their privacy policies, are generally independent data controllers for the data gathered through the cookies they serve; therefore, you will have to refer to their data processing policies, notices and consent forms (selection and deselection of their respective cookies), as stipulated in the aforementioned Provvedimento. We furthermore inform you that IPRONA does everything in its power to trace cookies on its own Website. These cookies are regularly updated in the table below, where we state with total transparency which cookies are sent directly by IPRONA and what their respective purposes are. As for the third parties who send cookies through our Website, we have provided links to their respective privacy statements below: as mentioned before, the responsibility to inform users and obtain their consent is theirs, as foreseen by the Provvedimento. This responsibility is not only for the cookies sent directly by the third parties, but also to any cookies sent through our Website during utilization of services said third parties avail of. Concerning these cookies, which are sent by service providers to the aforementioned third parties, IPRONA has no control over them, and does not know either their characteristics or purposes.
