COOKIE POLICY – GONNADU SITE

  1. Foreword

This cookie policy refers exclusively to the site (“Site”) and should be understood as an integral part of its Privacy Policy.

  1. Definitions, characteristics and enforcement

Cookies are small text files that sites you visit send and record on your computer or mobile device, to be transmitted back to the same sites on your next visit. It is precisely because of cookies that a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, language choice, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to said site or navigates from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site, and may also contain a unique identifier code that allows tracking of the user’s navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. In the course of browsing a site, users may also receive on their computer or mobile device cookies from sites or web servers other than the one they are visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies).

Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are therefore technically necessary for the very operation of the site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these may remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a predetermined expiration date.

Under current Italian law, the use of cookies does not always require the user’s express consent. In particular, “technical cookies,” i.e., those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of 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. These are, in other words, cookies that are indispensable for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

Among technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (see Provvedimento Individuazione delle modalità semplificate per l’informativa e l’acquisizione del consenso per l’uso dei cookie of May 8, 2014, hereinafter only “Provvedimento”) also includes:

– “analytics cookies” where used directly by the operator of the site to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site,

– navigation or session cookies that ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);

– functionality cookies, which 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.

 For “profiling cookies”, vice versa, i.e., those aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing, prior user consent is required.

  1. Types of cookies used by the Site

The Site uses the following types of cookies, and offers the possibility of de-selecting them, except for third-party cookies for which the user must refer directly to the relevant methods of selection and de-selection of the respective cookies, indicated by means of links:

– Technical cookies – browsing or session – strictly necessary for the operation of the Site or to enable the user to take advantage of the content and services requested by them.

– Analytics cookies, which allow the operator of the Site to understand how it is used by users. No information about the user’s identity or any personal data is collected with these cookies. The information is processed in aggregate and anonymous form.

– Functionality cookies, used to enable specific features of the Site and a set of selected criteria (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered.

– Profiling cookies, aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing.

CAUTION: Disabling technical and/or functionality cookies may result in the Site being unavailable or certain services or features of the Site not working properly, and you may have to change or manually enter certain information or preferences each time you visit the Site.

  1. How to view and modify cookies through your browsing program

You may select which cookies to authorize through the appropriate procedure prepared in the section Cookie Settings, as well as authorize, block or delete (in whole or in part) cookies through the specific functions of your browsing program (so-called browser): however, in the event that all or some of the cookies are disabled, it is possible that the Site may not be consultable or that some services or certain functions of the Site may not be available or may not function properly and/or you may be forced to change or manually enter certain information or preferences each time you visit the Site.
