With reference to personal data collected/managed for purposes of trade promotion and/or direct marketing activities, the conferment is not mandatory (neither contractually nor legally) but is necessary/functional for the performance of such purposes. Any refusal by the interested party to provide the relevant personal data, or the incorrect communication of such data, makes it impossible to carry out the marketing / trade promotion activity (if the data entry fields are marked with “*”) or the execution of a marketing / trade promotion activity that does not take into consideration the specificities of the interested user (if the data entry fields are not marked with “*”).

It will always be possible for the interested party to revoke at any time the consent originally provided, or to oppose the processing (for direct marketing), with the consequent immediate interruption of the processing of the data provided for the relevant purposes. The revocation of consent (or opposition) for only some of the purposes indicated, will have no effect on the regular execution of the other purposes indicated.

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 such as images, maps, sound files, links to individual web pages on different domains that are located on servers other than the one where the page being visited is stored. Cookies are present as a rule in substantial numbers in each user’s browser and at times they remain stored for long. They are used for several purposes ranging from IT authentication to the monitoring of browsing sessions up to the storage of specific information on user configurations in accessing a given server, and so on.

They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the data controller or the website manager. They can be grouped into 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); analytics cookies, which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they: (i) are used only to produce aggregate statistics and in relation to a single site; (ii) is masked, for those of third parties, at least the fourth component of the IP address; (iii) third parties refrain from combining analytical cookies, so minimized, with other processing or from transmitting them to other third parties; 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.
