Cookies Policy

Extended cookies disclosure of the site

According to Reg. EU 2016/679 of the art. 13 of Legislative Decree no. 196/03, c.d. GDPR (general regulation on data protection), this disclosure explains what cookies are and illustrates the various types of cookies on the website www.altrefiamme.it hereinafter, the “Website”) and integrates the information related to the data processing on the page https://www.altrefiamme.it/privacy-policy.

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send and record on his/her personal computer or any other device, even mobile, to then be re-transmitted to the same websites at the next visit. Thanks to cookies, a website remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be re-indicated when the user returns to visit said website or browse from one page to another. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing information regarding the activities of users accessing a website, and may also contain a unique identification code that allows for tracking the user’s navigation within the website itself for statistical or advertising purposes. During navigation on a website, the user can also receive, on his/her computer or mobile device, cookies from websites or web servers other than the one he/she is visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies). Some operations may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the functioning of the website itself.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these may remain in the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time; cookies can therefore be classified as:

  • “session” cookies, which are deleted immediately after the browser is closed;
  • “persistent” cookies, which remain in the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device that connects to a website, facilitating the authentication operations for the user;
  • “first-party” cookies, generated and managed directly by the operator of the website on which the user is browsing;
  • “third-party” cookies, generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website that the user is browsing.

According to the legislation in force in Italy, the user’s express consent is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, “technical cookies”, namely those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not require such consent. In other words, these are cookies that are essential for the operation of the website or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (see General Measure “Identification of the simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies – May 8, 2014”) also includes:

  • “cookie analytics”, where used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregated form, on the number of users and how they visit the website itself,
  • “browsing” or “session” cookies (to authenticate, to make a purchase, etc.),
  • “functional” cookies, that allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

On the other hand, for the so-called “profiling cookies”, namely those aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by himself/herself in the context of browsing the internet, a prior consent of the user is required.

Cookies used on the Website

The Website uses the following types of cookies:

  • first-party, session and persistent cookies, necessary to allow navigation on the Website, for purposes of internal security and system administration;
  • persistent third-party cookies used by the Website to send statistical information to the Google Analytics system, through which the Data Controller can perform statistical analysis of accesses/visits to the Website.

The cookies are used exclusively for statistical purposes and collect information in aggregate form. Through a pair of cookies, respectively a persistent cookie and a session cookie (with expiration at the closing of the browser), Google Analytics also saves a register with the start and exit times of the visit to the Website. You can prevent Google from detecting data through cookies and the subsequent processing of data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following address: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it
