COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

The so-called asset tracking or tracing of navigation is aimed at the analysis of the websites visited, their pages and their specific content, timing of the visits and their frequency. Often this information is also associated to the user without necessarily knowing his/her name and address. Through the analysis and processing of information about habits, customs and consumption, it is possible to reconstruct a commercial profile and the e-Targeted Advertising: proposing products or services or targeted content. From the IT standpoint, this is done by the vast majority of Web sites through cookies, ie small text files that the websites send to the user's computer, where they are stored and re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit.

Cookies are different and function differently, according to the Privacy Authority. They may be devided as:

  • A) Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or on a strictly necessary basis, a provider of an information service explicitly appointed by the subscriber or user in order to provide such a service "(art. 122, para 1 Privacy Code)."
    Technical cookies technicians can be divided into:
    • browsing cookies or session - they ensure the normal navigation and use of the website, allowing, for example, to realize a purchase or authenticate for access to restricted areas;
    • analytical cookies - cookies similar to technical ones when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in an anonymous and aggregated form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
    • functional cookies – they allow the user to browse using a of a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the performance of the website.
  • B) Profiling cookies also known as behavioral cookies - they create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the individual when browsing the net (Behavioral Advertising).
    They collect information relating to the users, the sites and the pages visited, the time spent. Then they show related advertisements on other websites (e-Targeted Advertising).
    There are other similar technologies (web beacons, flash cookies, silver light application storage) that can store and read data files on one's computer.
    Given the considerable invasiveness that such devices may have on of the private sphere of the users, the European and Italian legislation requires the user to be properly informed on the use of it and express their valid consent.

THE LAW OF PRIVACY GUARANTOR

With General Provision no. 229, 8 May 2014, published in the Gazetta Ufficiale no. 126, 3 June 2014 (effective from June 3, 2015 - art. 5, time necessary for adjustment), the National Guarantor has regulated the use of profiling cookies, as defined by art. 1, letter. b): profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user when surfing the net. Given the considerable invasiveness of such devices, by interfering with the privacy, both European and Italian legislations require the user to be properly informed on cookies and express consent.

They refer to art. 22 of the Privacy Law where "the storage of information in the computer of a contractor or a user or the access to information already stored, is only allowed if the contractor or the user has given consent after being informed according to the simplified procedures reported in Article 13, section 3 "(art. 122, section 1).

Cookies, therefore, held several important functions within the network, that have an impact both in a revealed and unrevealed way on the personal data of the user, without the necessary information and consent procedures required by legislation on privacy.
