What are cookies?
Cookies are text files that the sites visited send to the user’s browser and that are stored and then transmitted to the site on the next visit.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to track sessions, to authenticate a user so that they can access a site without typing in their name and password each time, and to store their preferences.
What are technical cookies?
So-called technical cookies are used for navigation and to facilitate the user’s access to and use of the site. Technical cookies are essential for example to access Google or Facebook without having to log in to all sessions. They are also essential for very sensitive operations such as home banking or payment by credit card or other systems.
Are Analytics cookies technical cookies?
In other words, are cookies that are placed in your browser and sent back via Google Analytics or the Blogger statistics service or similar technical cookies? The Garante stated that these cookies can only be considered technical if they are ‘used for site optimisation purposes directly by the owner of the site itself, who may collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site. Under these conditions, analytics cookies are subject to the same rules on information and consent as technical cookies.”
What are profiling cookies?
These are cookies used to track your browsing behaviour in order to create profiles on your tastes, preferences, interests and even searches. You will certainly have seen banners advertising a product that you have just searched for on the Internet. The reason for this is precisely the profiling of your interests, and the servers, appropriately addressed by the cookies, have shown you the most relevant ads.
Is the user’s consent required for the installation of cookies on his terminal equipment?
No consent is required for the installation of technical cookies, whereas profiling cookies can only be installed in the user’s terminal after the user has given his consent and been informed in a simplified manner.
How can webmasters request consent?
The Privacy Guarantor has established that when a user accesses a website, a banner must be displayed containing a brief informative note, a request for consent and a link to more extensive information, such as that visible on this page, on what profiling cookies are and how they are used on the site in question.
How should the banner be designed?
The banner must be designed to hide part of the content of the page and specify that the site uses profiling cookies, including those of third parties. The banner must be able to be removed only by an active action on the part of the user, such as a click.
What information must the banner contain?
The banner must contain the short information, the link to the extended information and the button to give consent to the use of profiling cookies.
It is permissible for a technical cookie to be used that takes account of the user’s consent so that the user does not have to express consent again on a subsequent visit to the site.
No. Other systems can be used as long as the system identified has the same requirements. The use of the banner is not necessary for sites that only use technical cookies.
What should be included on the more extensive information page?
The characteristics of the cookies installed, including by third parties, must be explained. It must also indicate to the user how to navigate the site without having his/her preferences tracked, with the possibility of incognito navigation and with the deletion of individual cookies.
Who is obliged to inform the Guarantor who uses profiling cookies?
The owner of the site has this burden. If he/she uses only third-party profiling cookies on his/her site, he/she does not need to inform the Guarantor, but he/she is obliged to indicate what these third-party cookies are and to indicate the links to the relevant information.
When will this legislation come into force?
The Guarantor has given one year to comply and the deadline is 2 June 2015.
