1) What are cookies?
Cookies are text files that the sites visited by the user send to the user's browser and that are stored before being re-transmitted to the site at the next visit.
2) What are cookies used for?
They can be used to monitor sessions, to authenticate a user so that they can access a website without typing in name and password every time, and to store their preferences.
3) What are technical cookies?
The so-called technical cookies are used for navigation and to facilitate access to and use of the site by the user. Technical cookies are essential, for example, to access Google or Facebook without having to log in at all sessions. They are also essential in very sensitive operations such as payments through home banking or credit card operations or on other payment platforms.
4) Are Analytics cookies technical cookies?
In other words, are the cookies stored in the browser and retransmitted by Google Analytics or through the Blogger Statistics service or similar service technical cookies? The Authority has affirmed that these cookies can be considered technical only if they are "used for the purpose of optimisation of the site directly by the owner of the site, who will collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the site. Under these conditions the same rules required for technical cookies apply to analytics cookies as regards disclosure and consent.”
5) What are "profiling" cookies?
These cookies are used to track the user's’navigation to create profiles based on their taste, preferences, interests and also on their searches. You have certainly seen advertising banners related to a product that you had searched on the web a few minutes earlier. This is generated by the profiling of your interests so that servers are appropriately directed by cookies to show you ads that are considered most relevant.
6) Do we need the user's consent to install cookies on his/her computer?
For the installation of technical cookies no consent is required, while profiling cookies can be installed in the user's terminal only after the latter has given consent and after he/she has been informed in a clear and simple way.
7) How can webmasters request consent?
The Privacy Authority has established that when a user accesses a website a banner must be displayed containing a brief statement with the request for consent and a link to the complete policy similar to what you are reading on this page, which explains what profiling cookies are and how they are used on the site in question.
8) How should the banner be created?
The banner must be designed so as to hide part of the page content and specify that the site uses profiling cookies, including those of third parties. The banner can be removed only with an active action by the user, e.g. with a click.
9) What information must be displayed in the banner?
The banner must contain a brief summary of the policy, the link to the complete policy and the button to give consent to the use of profiling cookies.
Consent is given to the use of a technical cookie that registers the user's consent so that the user does not have to re-express his/her consent during future visits to the site.
No. Other systems can be used, as long as such systems meet the same requirements. The use of a banner is not necessary for sites that use only technical cookies.
12) What should be included in the complete policy page?
The characteristics of the cookies installed by third parties must also be described. The user must also receive indications on how to navigate the site without his preferences being traced, with the possibility of browsing in incognito mode and of deleting individual cookies.
13) Who has the obligation to inform the Guarantor that profiling cookies are being used?
This is the responsibility of the owner of the website. If only third-party profiling cookies are used on a website, there is no need to inform the Authority but you must indicate what these third-party cookies are and display the links to the related information page.
14) When will this legislation come into force?
The Authority gave a period on one year to implement the legislation, and the deadline was 2 June 2015.
