Extended information on cookies installed by the website www.qality.it (hereinafter the “Site”) of the company Qality Srl (“data controller”), in accordance with (EU) Regulation 679/2016 (“GDPR”) and national law.
Definition of cookies.
– Cookies are small text files that the sites visited send to the browser used by the user for navigation and in which they are stored to be retransmitted to the same sites on the next visit made by the user with the same device.Their use is for different purposes: performing computer authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations set by the user (e.g. language), etc.
Types of cookies. – Cookies received by the user on your computer or other device may be set either by the owner of the sites or by different sites or web servers, on which certain elements on the site you are visiting reside, such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc. (in general, these different sites or web servers belong to platform providers for the creation of websites, which set certain cookies in order to collect and use information useful for sending advertisements). Based on the person who sets and sends the cookies, the following are distinguished:
Ø first-party cookies, to indicate the cookies set and sent by the site the user is visiting;
Ø third party cookies, to indicate cookies set by a site or web server other than the site the user is visiting.
The distinction is made in order to identify their respective roles and responsibilities, as the owner of a site is the owner of the processing of cookies installed by its site and not third party cookies, for the latter there is only the obligation to include in its information the updated link to the information and consent forms of third parties (obligation that, in the case of indirect contacts between the owner of the site and third parties, as in the case where the former has turned to dealers, can be fulfilled by linking to the intermediary’s site where links with third parties are collected).
Another important distinction must be made according to the purpose served by cookies:
Ø technical cookies: these are those used to guarantee the user the best use of the site and are in turn distinguished as:
– navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access reserved areas);
– analytics cookies, which are similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site owner to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and on the browsing methods and times;
– functionality cookies, which allow users to browse the website based on the selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to them.
Ø profiling cookies: these are used to collect information and send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of browsing the web.
Another distinction, finally, is based on the length of time cookies are stored (duration) on the user’s device:
session cookies: these are those automatically deleted when you stop visiting the site or when you close your browser;
persistent cookies: are those cookies stored on your device permanently until they expire, or you delete them.
Acceptance or rejection of cookies. – For the installation of technical cookies is not required the prior consent of the user, without prejudice to the obligation to give the information pursuant to GDPR art. 13.
For the installation of profiling cookies, however, given their invasiveness to users’ privacy, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be informed about their use and the need for their consent. For this reason, when you access any page of the Site you activate a banner (information band) which contains brief information on cookies (including a link to this extended information ) and on the request for consent; consent may be expressed in a simplified manner in the manner indicated in the banner, or selectively by following the instructions given in the following paragraph.
Failure to grant consent only has the effect of not being able to offer the user the correct use of the site.
