2. Definition and types of cookies
2.1. What are cookies?
Using the clear definition provided by the Privacy Authority, "cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to the user's terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to same sites at the next visit by the same user ".
During navigation, the user can receive on his terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone) not only cookies that are sent from the website he is visiting but can also receive them from different websites or web servers (so-called "third parties" ).
In fact, some elements present on the web page that is viewed (for example images, maps, sounds, links, etc.) are installed by a person other than the owner of the website being viewed.
Usually cookies are present in very large numbers in the user's browser and sometimes they take on a very high level of temporal persistence.
The purposes for which they are used can be the most varied: from purely technical reasons (aimed for example at allowing easier and more fluid navigation) it is possible, through their use, to carry out real profiling activities ( i.e. aimed at defining trend lines, tastes or behavior patterns referable to a certain subject to make advertising messages addressed to the latter more effective).
2.2. What are the types of cookies?
Generally speaking, cookies can be divided into two large macro categories: a) "Technical" cookies;
b) "Profiling" cookies; c) Proprietary Cookies and Third Party Cookies.
a) Technical Cookies
These are those cookies that are 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 the service "(see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code).
In other words, these tools are used to make navigation possible or to provide a service requested by the user.
In the absence of them, in fact, some operations, either could not be performed at all within the site, or they would be more complex (and sometimes less secure). Think for example of those cookies, on a home banking site, which allow the identification of the user to be maintained during a session, thus avoiding the need to continually re-enter their data (also affecting the security profile ).
A further characteristic of this type of cookie consists in the fact that they are not used for purposes other than those indicated, and are normally installed by the owner (or by the website manager).
Based on their functions, the Privacy Guarantor has proposed the following subdivision:
I. Navigation cookies: They guarantee normal navigation or use of the website (eg those that allow you to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
II. Cookie Analytics: They are similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
III. Functionality Cookies: They 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 provided.
b) Profiling cookies
These are cookies designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net.
These tools, by virtue of their particular invasiveness towards the user's private sphere, require the (informed) consent of the user to be installed on their terminal.
c) Proprietary Cookies and Third Party Cookies
A further differentiation is proposed with reference to the different subject that installs the cookies on the user's terminal.
By visiting a web page, in fact, it is possible to receive cookies both from the operator of the visited site (in this case we will speak of "Owners" or Publisher cookies) and from sites managed by other organizations (so-called "Third Parties"). An example of the latter category is represented by the Google Analytics service.
Finally, we remind you that the classification between technical and profiling cookies can also be applied to third-party cookies.
Depending on the purposes for which these third-party cookies will be used, we will refer to "Third-party technical cookies" or "Third-party profiling cookies".
2.3. Cookie and request for express consent
3. Types of cookies used by the site
Below we identify the cookies present on the website www.tecnochimica.eu, in order to make this table easier to understand, the characteristics of the installed cookies are explained in a simpler (and discursive) way:
- Technical cooky: Tecnochimica Spa uses these cookies to carry out activities strictly necessary for the functioning of the website and the provision of the service. These cookies do not profile the User. For the use of these cookies the consent of the User is not required.
However, Google Inc allows website operators to request the anonymization of all users' IP addresses. This is, in fact, made possible by providing the managers themselves with a technical tool that they can insert on their site.
Through this method, the owners of websites that use Google Analytics have the possibility, in fact, to set the program to use only part of the IP address.
Please refer to the following links for more information and details:
Tecnochimica Spa has requested Google Inc to anonymize IP addresses and has adopted procedures aimed at preventing the Google company from "crossing" the information of Google Analytics with other data in its possession.
For more information on this last aspect, please refer to the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1011397
Finally, please note that the user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing the component of
opt-out issued by Google.
