Cookie Policy

1. Legal framework of reference.

1.1. The Policy is based on the following EU and / or national regulatory provisions (first and / or second level): (i) Directive no. 2002/58 / EC of 12.7.2012 (so-called ePrivacy Directive), as amended by Directive no. 2009/136 / EC; (ii) art. 122 of the new Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 (Privacy Code), which transposed the ePrivacy Directive within the national legal system; (iii) GDPR: art. 4 n. 11), 7, 12, 13, 25 and 95 (in addition, in particular, to Recital no. 30, 32 and 173); (iv) Guidelines no. 5/2020 adopted on 4.5.2020 by the EDPB, replacing the Guidelines of 10.4.2018 signed by WP Art. 29; (v) Provision no. 231 of 10.6.2021 [doc. web n. 9677876] signed by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data (Privacy Guarantor); (vi) Recommendation No. 2/2001 of the WP Art. 29; (vii) Opinion no. 2/2010 of WP Art. 29; (viii) Opinion no. 4/2012 of the WP Art. 29; (ix) Guidelines no. 8/2020 of the EDPB.

2. Cookies and other tracking tools: definition and classification.

2.1. I “cookie[1] are, as a rule, strings of text that a website ("publisher" or "first party") visited by the user or a different website ("third party") places and stores, directly (in the case of the site first party internet) or indirectly (through the latter, in the hypothesis of a third party website), within a terminal device available to the user: in this regard, the Privacy Guarantor has specified the fact that the information, encoded in the cookies, may include both personal data pursuant to art. 4 n. 1) of the GDPR (e.g. IP address; username; email address; unique identifier) and non-personal data pursuant to art. 3 n. 1) of EU Regulation no. 1807/2018 (e.g. language; type of device used).

Alongside (or beyond) them, the "other tracking tools", Which can be divided into" active "(which have almost the same characteristics as cookies) and" passive "(eg finger printing).

2.2. Beyond the intrinsic characteristics described, cookies (and other tracking tools) can record different peculiarities in terms of time (and, therefore, be considered of "session"[2] O "permanent "[3], by reason of their duration), from a subjective point of view (depending on whether the publisher acts independently or on behalf of a "third party") and, finally (but in particular), based on the processing purpose pursued, so as to can be divided into two different (macro) categories:

- “technicians", Used for the sole purpose of" carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the contractor or by the user to provide this service "( art.122 paragraph 1) of the Privacy Code).
In this regard, the Privacy Guarantor highlighted, within the Provision no. 231 of 10.6.2021 (in line with the previous Provision on the matter of 2014), that the "cookie analytics”[4] may well be included within the channel of cookies (or other tracking tools) of a "technical" nature (and, therefore, can be used in the absence of the prior acquisition of consent by the interested party), upon the occurrence of certain conditions, aimed at precluding the possibility that, through their use, the direct identification of the interested party (single out)[5].

- “profiling "/" marketing " (so-called non-technical), used to bring back to specific, identified or identifiable subjects, specific actions or behavioral patterns recurring in the use of the functions offered (patterns) in order to group the different profiles within homogeneous clusters of different size, so that it is possible for the Data Controller, among other things, to modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly personalized way beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as to send targeted advertising messages (i.e., in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net).

[1] See Recital no. 30) of the GDPR ("Natural persons can be associated with online identifiers produced by the devices, applications, tools and protocols used, such as IP addresses, temporary markers (cookies) or other types of identifiers, such as radio frequency identification. These identifiers can leave traces which, in particular if combined with unique identifiers and other information received from servers, can be used to create profiles of natural persons and identify them "), and art. 122 paragraphs 1) and 2) of the Privacy Code ("1. The storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored are permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after being informed in a simplified manner. This does not prohibit any technical archiving or access to information already archived if aimed solely at carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the contractor or by the user to provide this service. For the purposes of determining the simplified procedures referred to in the first period, the Guarantor also takes into account the proposals formulated by the most representative associations at national consumers and economic categories involved, including at the sco po to ensure the use of methodologies that ensure the effective awareness of the contractor or user. 2. For the purpose of expressing the consent referred to in paragraph 1, specific configurations of computer programs or devices may be used that are easy and clear to use for the contractor or the user ... "); see also p. 15) of Provision no. 231 of 10.6.2021 signed by the Privacy Guarantor: "... as of today, there is still no universally accepted system of semantic encoding of cookies and other tracking tools that allows to objectively distinguish, for example, the technical ones from analytics or from those of profiling, if not based on the indications provided by the owner himself in the privacy policy [...] the hope that a general coding will be added quickly ".

[2] Cookies designed to collect and store data while a user accesses a website, and disappear once the latter has closed the relevant browsing session.

[3] Cookies suitable to last for a predetermined period of time (e.g. minutes; months; years).

[4] Analytical cookies are usually used to evaluate the effectiveness of an information society service provided by a publisher, for the design of a website or, finally, to help measure traffic (i.e., the number of visitors, even possibly broken down by geographical area, time slot of the connection).

[5] See the Guidelines in question, p. 13) and 14): "The structure of the analytics cookie must then provide for the possibility that it can be referred not only to one, but to multiple devices, in order to create a reasonable uncertainty about the computer identity of the person who receives it. As a rule, this effect is achieved by masking appropriate portions of the IP address within the cookie. Taking into account the representation of 32-bit IP version 4 (IPv4) addresses, which are usually represented and used as a sequence of four decimal numbers between 0 and 255 separated by a period, one of the measures that can be implemented in order to benefit from the exemption is in masking at least the fourth component of the address, an option that introduces an uncertainty in the attribution of the cookie to a specific interested party equal to 1/256 (approximately 0.4%). Similar procedures should be adopted with reference to IP version 6 (IPv6) addresses, which have a different structure and an enormously larger address space (being made up of binary numbers represented with 128 bits). The Guarantor also underlines the need for the use of analytics cookies to be limited only to the production of aggregate statistics and for them to be used in relation to a single site or a single mobile application, so as not to allow tracking of the navigation of the person who uses different applications or browses different websites. It is therefore understood that third parties, who provide the publisher with the web measurement service, will not have to combine the data, even so minimized, with other processing (customer files or statistics of visits to other sites, for example) or transmit them to in turn to further third parties, under penalty of an unacceptable increase in the risk of identifying the user; except in the case in which the production of statistics carried out by them with the minimized data involves multiple domains, websites or apps attributable to the same publisher or business group. However, even in the absence of the adoption of the prescribed minimization measures, it is possible to deem it lawful to use statistical analyzes relating to multiple domains, websites or apps attributable to the same owner, provided that the latter carries out the statistical processing on its own, without in any case case that such analyzes result in an activity which, going beyond the confines of a mere statistical count, actually assumes the characteristics of a processing aimed at taking decisions of a commercial nature ".
