Normative reference: Cookie Law ” Regulation for the identification of simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies” issued by the Guarantor for the Protection of Personal Data on 8 May 2014. Its text became Italian Law on 3 June 2014 with the publication in the Official Gazette n. 126.

This Cookie Policy sets out how La Torrente Srl, and third parties we authorize, use cookies when you interact with our site. By continuing to use our website, after having been informed of the use of cookies, the user accepts technical and functional cookies which are essential to facilitate the navigation. Without the use of these cookies, parts of our website would not function. However, our website does not directly use profiling cookies provided by first parties but it may also contain links, services, images, or third party multimedia components that may generate cookies on which we cannot have direct control. By disabling the saving of all or some cookies, the navigability of the site (or some sections of it) may be compromised or limited by the lack of functionality.

Our website does not directly produce profiling cookies (i.e., first-party proprietary cookies that create user profiles and that are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same through its choices to browse the net) but may contain links, services, images or multimedia components of third parties, which may in turn generate cookies of this kind and on which we cannot have direct control; therefore, for more information you can access the information and forms of acquisition of consent of third parties.

What are cookies ?

A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on computers, tablets, mobile phones and on any device used to browse the Internet that can store navigation information for statistical or functional purposes. During the navigation we can collect information related to traffic flow, visits to the pages of our domain, remember for example language preferences, recognize the user in subsequent visits etc. so as to facilitate navigation on our website. Therefore, the main purpose of using cookies is to make the user experience more efficient, customizing the access to the website, optimizing navigation and its operation, as well as improving our services. This information, obtainedthrough cookies, will be treatedsecurely.

Depending on the Domain that installed them we distinguish:

  • First party cookies or owners : these are files that are installed on the user’s device directly from the site on which you are browsing.
  • Third-party cookies : these are files that are installed from external sites, through a code integrated in the pages of the site that you are browsing. These are examples of third-party cookies, advertising banners, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located, such as Youtube or Facebook cookies that collect information on the use of social media or that are used for the analysis and evaluation of visits to the site or to provide targeted advertising.

Depending on their duration, cookies are distinguished in:

  • Session cookies: These are temporary files that are stored until the site is abandoned (or the browser is closed).
  • Persistent cookies : These are files that are stored and maintained even after leaving the site and closing the browser allowing you to store the preferences or actions of the user compared to a site even for a long time. These cookies are deleted only after the expiration date indicated in the cookie.

Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into:

  • Indispensable “technical” cookies
    They are essential for the proper functioning of the pages of the site. Without these cookies some features may be compromised and access to the content may be limited. They allow, for example, to keep track of authentication carried out by a user or an administrator of the site. Cookies of this type do not collect any personal information of the user.
  • Functionality “technical” cookies
    These cookies are used to store the choices made by the user to improve navigation (for example, the language, or pre-fill a form with the name used previously). This type of cookie may include personal information (such as your username). Without these cookies some features and navigation between pages may be compromised.
  • Cookies “analytics or performance”
    Also, within the scope of technical cookies also those used for the analysis and management of the performance of the site, also called “analytics”: these cookies collect information on how users use the application by detecting, for example, which are the most visited pages, how long they remain on the pages and on the site, from what geographical area they have reached the site. The data do not identify the user as a person but are aggregated anonymously by the analytical tools used. The deactivation of these cookies does not in any way compromise the features offered by the site.
  • Cookie of social widget
    Some widgets made available by social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google Plus, Linkedin, etc.) may use their own cookies or third parties. Deactivation does not affect the use of the site, except in the sections where widgets can be installed (for example for integration of videos or maps) and in some cases the possibility of fast sharing of content or the ability to comment on some areas of the site. This site does NOT use cookies of this type. The videos from Youtube and inserted on the pages of this site, have been integrated using the version from the domain https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/ in order to avoid the installation of third-party cookies by that service. Cookies are installed directly at the start of the video.
  • Profiling/Advertising cookies
    Advertising cookies are installed to show visitors to the site content related to their preferences. They can then be used to show advertising content targeted to the interests of the person. Cookies of this type work in collaboration with third-party sites and can keep track of the navigation passed on pages on different domains. Cookies of this type usually keep track of the user’s IP address in addition to other information, some of which may be personal.

What are the cookies for which consent is required?

According to current legislation in Italy, for the use of cookies is not always required express consent of the user. In particular, do not require such consent “technical cookies”, used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these cookies are essential for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user. Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (cf. Provision Identification of simplified procedures for the disclosure and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies of 8 May 2014, hereinafter referred to as “Provision”) also includes:

  • “analytics cookies” where used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate and anonymous form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.
  • navigation or session cookies (for example, authentication)
  • unctionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

For “profiling cookies”, vice versa, that is, those 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 surfing the net, prior consent of the user is required.
