Pursuant to the Provision no. 229 [www.garanteprivacy.it/web/guest/home/docweb/-/docweb-display/docweb/3167654] issued by the Personal Data Protection Authority on May 8, 2014, www.piccolaccoglienzagubbio.it provides the following information on cookies and on their functions, as well as instructions on how to disable them.
What are cookiesCookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and record on his/her pc or on any other device, even mobile, to be sent back to the original sites on the next visit.
Cookies are used for various purposes, for instance, to remember the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for instance, login data, selected language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they must not re-entered when the user returns to the same site or surfs from one of its pages to another; or to perform computer authentications, to monitor sessions and store information on the activities of user who access a site, and they can also contain a unique ID code that allows keeping track of the user’s surfing within the site for statistic or advertising purposes.
Cookies can be sent by www.piccolaccoglienzagubbio.it or also by different sites (the so-called “third party” cookies).
Some operations cannot be carried out without using cookies and are in some cases technically necessary for the site to work.
Types of cookiesCookies may be distinguished into two major groups: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
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. 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 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.
Cookies are classified as original or of third parties, on the basis of the different subject that install cookies on terminal of the user. These are first-party cookies if the person who sends the cookies is the same site manager that user is visiting and which we might call "Publisher"; these are third-party cookies if the person who installs the cookies is an entity other than publisher and performs the publication via the web site of the first.
The name or the contents of the cookie does not change. On the basis of the domain pointed to your browser, you can determine wether the cookie is original, or to any third party. The same type of cookie can be used in both cases.
Therefore you can define cookies:
- First-party if they are created and are readable by the web site that created them.
- Third-party if they are created and are readable by subject and external domains to the web site you are viewing; the data collected are kept at the third party.
Types of cookies found on the sitewww.piccolaccoglienzagubbio.it uses technical cookies necessary to permit complete and efficient use of the website and third-party cookies to allow donations (PayPal). Technical Cookies are automatically installed through access to the site for the purposes described below; for this type of cookie, pursuant to art. 122 of the Code privacy and Authority Provision of 8 May 2014, is not asked to consent. The third-party cookies installed by the website instead require the user's permission for their use.

Managing cookiesMost browsers allow you to allow, block or delete, in whole or in part, the installation of cookies through their preference settings. However, the restriction of the ability of web sites to set technical cookies may affect usability preventing the proper functionality of a site, while the profiling cookies are not generally necessary to navigate. For detailed information on the necessary procedure you can refer to the help of the browser use.
You can also:
- enable Do Not Track present in many last generation browsers. Websites supporting this feature, if enabled, should automatically suspend any data collection. Not all websites support Do Not Track.
- enable Incognito Mode. With this feature enabled, the browser will delete cookies and history every time you close it. The websites will not remember your account login or your preferences. The data collected during the navigation will still be available to the managers of the websites.
