2.2. Automatically collected navigation data and cookies

Cookies are very small text files sent from the websites visited by users to their devices (usually to the browser), where they are stored so that the device can be recognized on subsequent visits. The cookies are re-sent from the user’s device to the website on each subsequent visit.

Each cookie generally contains: the name of the server from which the cookie was sent, the expiry date and a value, which is usually a number generated at random by the computer. The server of the website that transfers the cookie uses this number to identify the User with when they revisit a site or navigate from one page to another.

Cookies can be installed not only by the same operator of the site visited by the user, (henceforth referred to as first-party cookies) but also by a different site that installs cookies (henceforth referred to as third-party cookies) through using the first-party website and is able to identify them. This happens when the site visited has elements, (such as images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on different servers in addition to that of the site being visited. In general, cookies are classified in different types according to:

A. Duration:

  • Session cookies (temporary) automatically deleted when user closes the browser;

  • Persistent cookies active up to the expiry date or up to the cancellation by the user beforehand.

B. Source:

  • First-party cookies sent to web browsers directly from the website being visited;

  • Third-party cookies sent to web browsers from other websites and not from the website being visited.

  • Functionality / preference / localization of session status cookies permit to store information that modify the behavior or appearance of the website (preferred language, text and character size, geographical area in which user is located). If they are blocked, the user experience is less functional but not compromised;

  • Statistics / analytics cookies of a) first-party or b) third party with IP mask, without cross-reference data like technical cookies do for specific purposes, are used to collect information and generate statistics on website usage to ascertain how visitors interact with sites.

In general, apart from the type of cookies adopted by this website, we wish to inform Users that, in addition to the protection provided by current legislation, there are other available options to use when browsing the internet without receiving cookies, such as:

  • Blocking third-party cookies: cookies from third-parties are not necessary for browsing, therefore you can choose to disable them for default using the appropriate functions provided by your browser.

  • Activating the Do Not Track (DNT) option: most browsers of the latest generation provide users with Do Not Track (DNT) option. Websites designed to respect this option, when activated, should automatically stop collecting your browsing data. As mentioned beforehand, not all websites are designed to respect this option and therefore must be used as your discretion. Activating the anonymous web browsing mode: by using this function you can browse the web in incognito mode leaving no trace of information of your navigation activities in the browser. The websites will not remember you, the pages you visit will not be stored in the browser history and any new cookies will be deleted. However, the anonymous web browsing function does not warrant anonymity on the Internet, it only impedes the storage of your navigation data in the browser. Your navigation data shall, nevertheless, continue to be available to website managers and connectivity providers.

  • Deleting cookies directly: there are specific functions that you can use to do this in all browsers. However, please be reminded that new cookies are downloaded upon each Internet connection, so the deleting action should be performed periodically. Alternatively, some browsers do offer the use of automated systems that will periodically do this for you.

  4. Decisions referred to in paragraph 2 shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(2)1), unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) applies and suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

Art. 34 GDPR

Communication of a personal data breach to the data subject

(Suitable Recitals: 68 Notification of data subjects in case of data breaches, 87 Promptness of reporting/notification, 88 Format and procedures of the notification)

  1. When the personal data breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the controller shall communicate the personal data breach to the data subject without undue delay.

  2. The communication to the data subject referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article shall describe in clear and plain language the nature of the personal data breach and contain at least the information and measures referred to in points (b), (c) and (d) of Article 33(3).

  3. The communication to the data subject referred to in paragraph 1 shall not be required if any of the following conditions are met:

    1. the controller has implemented appropriate technical and organizational protection measures, and those measures were applied to the personal data affected by the personal data breach, in particular those that render the personal data unintelligible to any person who is not authorized to access it, such as encryption;

    2. the controller has taken subsequent measures which ensure that the high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects referred to in paragraph 1 is no longer likely to materialize;

    3. it would involve disproportionate effort. In such a case, there shall instead be a public communication or similar measure whereby the data subjects are informed in an equally effective manner.

  4. If the controller has not already communicated the personal data breach to the data subject, the supervisory authority, having considered the likelihood of the personal data breach resulting in a high risk, may require it to do so or may decide that any of the conditions referred to in paragraph 3 are met.
