Information Notice on Cookies
This document is an integral part of the Information Note on the Processing of Personal Data, available at the following link: www.italiaindependent.com/informativa-privacy.
1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small units of text strings that websites visited by the user may send to the user's device (normally to the browser); they are then stored on the device and transmitted to the site again the next time the user visits it.
Cookies must be enabled in order to be able to order products on the Site. If the user chooses not to accept the cookies, you can still browse the Site and use it for reference purposes. Cookies are enabled by default by most browsers, nevertheless a section with instructions on how to manage cookie settings for each browser can be found at the end of this page.
It is important to point out that, whilst browsing the web, users may receive two different types of cookies:
(i) those of the site visited by the user (so-called "first party cookies"); and/or
(ii) those of other sites or web servers (so-called "third party cookies").
Cookies can also be classified into categories according to the purpose for which they are used: some provide improved browsing of the site by saving the users choices in relation to specific configurations (so-called "technical cookies"), whilst others are used to track the navigation activities of the user and send advertising and/or offer services which meet the preferences of the same (so-called "profiling cookies").
Cookies can perform various functions, such as allowing you to navigate between different pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and in general to improve the user's experience on websites.
Cookies are not dangerous for any user devices. No personal identification information such as, for instance, credit card details, are saved in the cookies generated by the Site. The information below, however, is encrypted and collected by the same to improve the user's browsing experience on the Site. For example, they can be useful for identifying and resolving errors, or for identifying relevant correlated products to be proposed to the user during navigation.
2. First party cookies
The Site uses the following types of first-party technical cookies, for which no users' consent is required but for which the joint Data Controllers are obliged to provide adequate information:
(a) Transient or session cookies: these are essential as they allow the user to move from one page to another on our Site and make use of the services provided; as they are not stored on the user's device, they disappear when the browser is closed;
(b) Persistent cookies: used solely to improve Site browsing speed, as they memorise certain settings selected by the user (such as language selection).
They are therefore instruments used by the joint Data Controllers to guarantee, among other, efficient browsing, session stability, continued login settings throughout the entire session and the selected navigation Country. They also remember the selections made by the user related to the viewing of certain page elements, such as for instance, information and communication banners.
The use of technical cookies and the processing activities related to the same, do not require prior consent of the user, according to the current laws in force.
The possibility remains, in any case, for users to prevent the installation of technical cookies at any moment in time using the settings on the browser used; this does mean, however, that such settings may make the Site slow, complicated or even impossible to navigate.
Triboo Digitale and Italia Independent act as joint Data Controllers exclusively for the first party cookies installed on the Site.
3. Third party cookies
It is possible that some cookies are placed on your device when browsing our Site which are not directly controlled and managed by the joint Data Controllers. This happens, for instance, if the user visits a page that contains third party website content.
In this respect, please be advised that Triboo Digitale and Italia Independent have no role in the processing of the data collected by this type of cookie, given their status as mere technical intermediaries.
Third party cookies are required to view customised advertising on the Site and other websites, and are based on the browsing activities of each individual user. This type of cookie may also be used by third parties to display their products and services on the Site.
The Site also uses analytic cookies which are used to collect, as a mere example, the following information:
These cookies, along with the purposes for which the same are used outside the Site, fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the third part that installs them on the users' terminals and are used to display advertising media to the user that may be of interest to the same (as in the case of third party cookies used for marketing/retargeting strategies).
Should the user decide not to receive third party cookies on his/her device, it is possible to use the links below and access the information notice and consent forms provided by such third parties to reject setting of all such cookies.
4. How to disable cookies
When visiting the Site for the first time, the user can accept all cookies by clicking the "OK" button or the "X" closure button in the banner, or any web page element outside the actual banner itself.
In any case, given that most browsers are programmed to accept cookies automatically, the user can choose to block receipt of the same, especially in those cases where the third party in question has not provided the opt-out option correctly, by accessing the browser settings and disabling the use of such cookies, according to the procedure illustrated in the links indicated below:
For further information on cookies visit the www.youronlinechoices.com site (for the services granted by this platform only), to obtain instructions on how to eliminate or manage cookies according to the browser used and to select the settings to be applied to third party cookies.
To disable analytical cookies and prevent Google Analytics from collecting your navigation data, download the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
