Cookies and Similar Technologies
This section describes how www.geunaceramiche.it, our partners, and our other third parties use Cookies and Similar Technologies.

Definitions
Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user's terminal equipment (usually to the user's browser) by visited websites; they are stored in the user's terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's subsequent visits to those websites. When navigating a website, a user may happen to receive cookies from other websites or web servers, which are the so-called 'third party' cookies. This happens because the visited website may contain items that are located on servers other than the one where the page being visited is stored.

Duration od cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) operate to the end of that particular web browsing session and they are automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser. Other cookies do not expire when you close your browser and they are available between browsing sessions. These cookies are called 'persistent' Cookies and their and their length of time is fixed by server at the moment of their creation. In some cases, they have a expiry date, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

Types of cookies
For the purposes of Personal Data Protection Code, cookies may be distinguished into two major group: 'technical' cookies and 'profiling' cookies.

Technical Cookie
Technical cookies are those used exclusively with a view to 'carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service.' (see Section 122(1) of the Code).
They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the data controller or the website manager.
Certain operations could not be performed without cookies, which in some cases are therefore necessary for technical reasons. For instance, it would be much more complex and less secure to access home banking services and check one's bank statement, transfer money, pay bills, etc. without using cookies that allow identifying the specific user and keeping such identification throughout the web session.

They can be grouped in:

  • Browsing or session cookies, which allow users to navigate and use a website (e.g. to purchase items online or authenticate themselves to access certain sections). Disabling these Cookies will encumber the Sites' performance and may make the features and service unavailable.
  • Analytics cookies, which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website.
  • Functional cookies, which allow users to navigate as a function of certain pre-determined criteria such as language or products to be purchased so as to improve the quality of service.
Users' prior consent is not necessary to install these cookies, whilst information under Section 13 of the code has to be provided in the manner considered to be most appropriate by the website manager – if only such cookies are relied upon.

Profiling Cookies
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles. They are used to send ads messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation. In the light of the highly invasive nature of these cookies vis-à-vis users' private sphere, Italian and European legislation requires users to be informed appropriately on their use so as to give their valid consent.
