First we see the difference between Privacy and Cookie Policy: the Privacy Policy is a document that informs users of websites about the management and processing of their personal data, whether it is the activity of real data collection or just the monitoring of visits to the site, through tools such as Google Analytics. The cookie policy is a document that explains what type of cookies is active on a website, what cookies are used, what data they track and how it is possible for the user to accept or reject cookies through the browser settings and through the banner.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files that websites store while browsing on a device, such as a PC, smartphone or any other device that can store information. Cookies perform a number of important functions, including remembering a user and their previous interactions with a website. They can be used, for example, to keep track of items added to a virtual shopping cart during online purchases or to keep track of information when entering details in an online form. Some cookies are also used to help web pages load faster and to route information over a network.

This recognition allows you to customize the configuration of the site, create authentication mechanisms or access processes to password protected areas. It is through the use of cookies that we store navigation data necessary to offer statistics of access to the site, in the form of web analytics.

The information stored in cookies may include personal data, such as an IP address, a user name, a unique identifier or an email address. But they can also contain non-personal data such as language settings or information about the type of device a person uses to navigate the site. Cookies may also contain advertising IDs, user IDs, and other tracking IDs.

Cookies are a potential privacy risk because they are able to track, store and share information about users’ online behavior, offering advertisements in line with their interests. This is why it is important to also consider possible implications that could result from a misuse of information by malicious parties.

The processing of personal data

Privacy is a fundamental right and has become a crucial topic with the advent of the digital age, as people more or less consciously share a large amount of personal information on the internet. The processing of personal data is an important aspect and to which are linked several obligations summarized in the website of the Guarantor for the Protection of Personal Data (GPDP). In summary it is required to provide users:

  • an information to enable them to exercise their rights before processing personal data;
  • the mode of treatment.

The obligations relating to security measures under which the controller is obliged to minimize the risk of destruction shall also be taken into account, loss, unauthorized access or processing of personal data not permitted or not in accordance with the purpose of the collection. Another obligation is to inform users that the paths and content consumed, as part of the navigation of the site, can be tracked and that this information can be used for commercial purposes.
