Cookies Policy

Document updated in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Cookies on Websites published by the Italian Data Protection Authority on 10 June 2021, in force since 10 January 2022

Dear User, the website (the “Website”), owned by Artiness S.r.l. (the “Company“), makes use of Cookies.

With this notice we explain what cookies are and how they are used on the Website. Through these cookies, the Company, as Data Controller, collects and processes certain personal data concerning you. By means of this information notice, also prepared pursuant to Article 13 of the EU Regulation 2016/679 on the protection of personal data (hereinafter referred to as the “Regulation” or “GDPR“); of Legislative Decree No. 196/2003- as amended by Legislative Decree 101/2018 – (hereinafter referred to as the “Privacy Code“); as well as of the privacy legislation in force, we explain how we collect this data, for what purposes and what your rights are.

  1. What are Cookies

Cookies are small portions of code that sites visited by the user send to the browser, where they are stored and then transmitted to the same sites during navigation or on the next visit by the same user. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on his/her workstation that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third party” cookies), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same user is visiting may reside. In this way, for example, cookies allow and/or facilitate access to certain Internet pages in order to improve the user’s navigation (i.e., they allow the memorisation of visited pages and other specific information, such as frequently consulted pages, connection errors, etc.), or they allow profiling activities. Therefore, for an easy and complete use of a website, it would be advisable for the user to configure his or her browser so that it accepts the reception of such cookies.

There are different types of Cookies and tracking tools managed directly by the Data Controller, so-called “first party” tracking tools, installed on the Website directly by the Data Controller and tracking tools enabling services provided by third parties, so-called “third party” tracking tools, which are installed on the Website by parties other than the Data Controller.

  1. Duration and expiry of cookies and other tracking tools

According to the duration of use, a distinction is made between session cookies, which are automatically removed at the end of the browsing session, and persistent cookies, which remain stored in the User’s device even after the end of the browsing session on the Site.

  1. Purpose of Cookies

In relation to purpose, cookies are distinguished into:

  1. i) technical cookies: these are cookies, either proprietary or third-party, which serve to carry out navigation or to provide a service requested by the user. Without the use of such cookies, certain operations could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure. These types of cookies make it possible to carry out and maintain user identification within the session and are indispensable. This data is used in an anonymous or aggregate form and no specific consent of the User is required for its installation and subsequent use;
  2. ii) analytical cookies: these are cookies, either proprietary or third party, used to measure the network traffic of the Website, to obtain statistical information, also in aggregate form, on the number of Users accessing the Site and on how the Website is used. Analytical type cookies can be assimilated to technical cookies and, as such, be used without the prior acquisition of the User’s consent only if they are used for the purpose of optimising the Site directly by the owner of the Website itself, who may collect statistical information in aggregate form on the number of Users and on how they visit the Website (the so-called “single out”) (See “Guidelines for cookies and other tracking tools” published by the Italian Data Protection Authority on 10 June 2021).
  • iii) profiling cookies: these are cookies, either proprietary or third-party, used to trace a profile of the User in order to send advertising messages that are consistent with the tastes and consumption habits expressed by the User while surfing the web (so-called profiling). Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of the Users, European and Italian regulations provide that the User must be adequately informed on the use of such devices and express his or her free and specific consent regarding their installation on his or her navigation device.

In addition to what is specified in the description of each of the categories above, Users can obtain more detailed and up-to-date information on the duration, as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other tracking tools – in the privacy policies of the respective third-party providers (via the links provided) or by contacting the Data Controller.
