Cookie Policy

Cookies are small text files that may be sent to and registered on your computer or mobile device by the websites you visit, to then be re-sent to those same sites when you visit them again. It is thanks to these cookies that those websites can “remember” your actions and preferences (e.g., login data, language, font size, other display settings, etc.), so that you do not need to configure them again when you next visit the website, or when you change pages within a website.

Cookies are, therefore, used for electronic authentication, monitoring of sessions and storage of information regarding your activities when accessing a website. They may also contain a unique ID code which allows tracking of your browsing activities within a website, for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations within a website may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies which, in certain cases, are technically necessary for operation of the website.

When browsing a website, you may also receive cookies from websites or web servers other than the website being visited (i.e., third-party cookies).

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, which may be stored on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time: “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, and “persistent cookies”, which will remain on your device until their pre-set expiration period passes.

According to the law which may be applicable to you, your consent may not always be necessary for cookies to be used through the Website. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e. cookies used exclusively to transmit messages over an electronic communications network, or otherwise strictly necessary to provide a service specifically requested by you – typically do not require this consent. In other words, cookies which are indispensable for operation of the Website or required to perform activities you request may be used without your consent. This may include cookies used for analytics purposes (used to collect aggregated information on the number of users of a website, and how those users visit the website), browsing or session cookies (used to allow users to login) and function cookies (used to allow memorisation of choices made by a user when accessing the website, such as language or products selected for purchase, in order to improve the user’s experience).

On the other hand, “profiling cookies” – i.e., cookies used to create profiles on users and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences revealed by users while browsing websites – typically require specific consent from users, although this may vary according to the applicable law.

Under Italian law, your express consent is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e., cookies used exclusively to transmit messages over an electronic communications network, or otherwise strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by you – do not require your consent. In other words, cookies which are indispensable for the operation of theWebsite or required to perform activities you request may be used without your consent. The Italian Data Protection Authority (as defined in its “Determination of simplified procedures for information and collection of consent for the use of cookies”, 8 May 2014, and subsequent clarifications), has established that, among cookies which can be used without consent, the following are included:

On the other hand, “profiling cookies” – i.e., cookies used to create profiles on users and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences revealed by users while browsing websites – require users’ prior consent.

The Website uses the following types of cookies:

Sofidel also uses third-party cookies – i.e. cookies from websites / web servers other than the Website, and which are used for specific purposes of the third parties owning those websites / webservers (including profiling of users). These third parties will typically be considered independent data controllers regarding their cookies, and therefore you must refer to their privacy policies, information notices or other materials to obtain more information on them. Sofidel cannot control or ascertain the use which may be made, by these third parties, of third-party cookies, nor their exact characteristics or purpose.

The following section lists the links to information on third-party cookies:
