We have recently updated this policy in light of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation, hereinafter “GDPR”).
Protecting the privacy of the users of the https://www.advantex.it/ website and allowing them to make informed choices about the cookies downloaded to their terminals, such as, tablets, smartphones, and notebooks while browsing is of paramount importance to our company.
This policy provides detailed information about the types of cookies stored on users’ terminals by the websites they visit, the purposes of cookies, and how to manage cookie settings.
This policy applies only to the Advantex S.r.l. website and not to any other websites that may be accessed by clicking on the links provided.
Cookies are small data files containing small amounts of information about your activity on a website and are stored on the device used to access the website. Cookies do not damage your device and enable us to provide you with a better experience and faster browsing when accessing our website.
Specifically, cookies enable us to store information on your browser that can be reused during your current session (session cookies) or when you visit the website again in the future (persistent cookies). Cookies cannot be used to obtain data stored on your hard disc, spread computer viruses, or obtain email addresses.
– Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided into two main groups: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
The so-called “technical” cookies do not require your consent to be stored on a device as they are needed to ensure normal browsing and use of a website. They are essential for a website to function correctly or perform whatever functions you may require as a user.
According to the Italian Data Protection Authority, technical cookies include:
- “session” or “navigation cookies” (for authentication, making a purchase, etc.);
- “analytics cookies” for collecting aggregated data about the number of users and analysing how they use the website;
- “functional cookies” that enable you to browse a website based on selected criteria, such as language preferences, products selected for purchase, etc. to provide the best possible browsing experience.
The so-called “profiling” cookies are different though; these cookies are designed to create user profiles and send advertising messages in line with the preferences you have shown while online.
Italian and European legislation requires users to be appropriately informed about the use of these cookies so that you can provide valid consent.
Profiling cookies also include the so-called “third-party” cookies that belong to websites or web servers other than the website you have accessed. An important example is the presence of social plugins for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page you have visited that are directly generated by the abovementioned websites and incorporated into the page of the host website.
– The cookies used by this website
This website uses “technical cookies” for the sole purpose of enabling you to browse online or to ensure you are provided, to the extent strictly necessary, with the services you requested.
In addition to the cookies that come directly from Advantex Srl, which are known as first-party or the publisher’s cookies, there may be so-called “third-party” cookies on this website; these cookies act on the publisher’s website but are not owned by the publisher. Advantex Srl does not control these third-party cookies and you should refer to the respective third-party websites for information about how these cookies work.
During normal operation, the IT systems and software procedures used to run this website collect personal data, which is implicitly transmitted through the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but could, by its very nature, and if processed and integrated with third-party data, allow users to be identified.
This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used to access the website, access time, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the state of the data response from the server (successful, error, etc.) and other information relating to the user’s operating system and IT environment.
These data are only used to produce anonymous statistical information on the use of the website and to check that it is functioning correctly and they are immediately deleted once they have been processed. These data may be used to ascertain liability in the event of cybercrimes committed against the website. Other than this, web contact data are not stored in any other way.
– Cookies settings
You may consent to, block or delete (in whole or in part) cookies by using the cookie management tools available in your browser.
Please note: completely or partially disabling technical cookies may compromise the functions that are available for registered users on this website, whereas all public content is still accessible even if the cookies have been completely disabled.
