DIRECTIVE 2009/136 / EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of November 25, 2009, approved in Italy by Legislative Decree 69/2012 and 70/2012 | Measure of the Privacy Authority n.229 / 2014
Cookies can be completely disabled by the browser using the appropriate function provided in most browsers. It is good to know, however, that by deactivating cookies some of the features of the site may not be usable.
The site is made with Prestashop and the cookies used are technical. It also uses third-party profiling cookies, namely Google Analytics (it detects browsing data), social network buttons, Google apis, images.
Taken from the Provvedimento del Garante Privacy n. 229/2014
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "transmitting 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 cfr. art. 122, comma 1, del Codice).
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; functional cookies, which allow the user to browse 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, that the site manager, if uses only such devices, will be able to provide in the manner he deems most suitable.
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles related 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. Because of the particular invasiveness that such devices can have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation requires the user to be adequately informed about their use and express their valid consent.
The art. 122 of the Code whereby "the storage of information in the terminal device of a contractor or a user or access to information already filed is permitted only on condition that the contractor or the user has given his consent after being was informed with the simplified procedures referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3" (art. 122, comma 1, del Codice).
Taken from Provvedimento del Garante Privacy n. 229/2014: <<There are multiple reasons for which it is not possible to put the publisher in charge of providing the information and acquiring the consent to the installation of cookies in the context of their site for those installed by "third parties".
Third-party cookies could then be modified over time by third-party suppliers and it would be impractical to ask publishers to keep track of these subsequent changes.
It is also necessary to take into account the fact that often publishers, who also include individuals and small businesses, are the "weaker" part of the relationship. Whereas, on the other hand, the third parties are usually large companies characterized by considerable economic weight, they normally serve a plurality of publishers and can be very numerous compared to the single publisher.
It is therefore considered that, also due to the reasons given above, the publisher cannot be obliged to include on the home page of his site the text of the information relating to the cookies installed by third parties.>>
