Personal Data: various Types of Data.

The User is invited to read carefully the related privacy policy.

 

PRIVACY SHIELD

Privacy Shield between EU and US is a self-certification mechanism for companies established in the US that process Personal Data received from European Union. It was deemed adequate by the European Commission in 2016.

In compliance with the principles contained therein, the companies undertake to provide adequate protection tools to the interested parties (i.e. all the Data Subjects whose Personal Data have been transferred from the European Union). If not, they are removed from the certified companies list (“Privacy Shield List”) by the US Department of Commerce and can be subjected to sanctions by the Federal Trade Commission.

However, on July 16th, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) (2016/1250 Decision of on the adequacy of the protection offered by the EU-US privacy shield regime – cd. “Schrems II Judgment”,) declares the Privacy Shield inadequate to protect Personal Data received from EU to a company established in United States.

The standard contractual clauses were instead confirmed as valid for Personal Data transfer from EU to non-EU country (in accordance with European Court of Justice’s decision 2010/87).The User is invited to see FAQs relating to the Schrems II ruling and its effects drafted by the European Data Protection Committee (EDPB), the website www.privacyshield.gov and the Data Protection Authority’s website to better understand the issue and monitor further developments.

 

How can I grant or revoke consent to the use of Cookies?

The User can change his/her preferences relating to Cookies and prevent – for example – third-parties from installing them in the following ways:

1) by setting the browser software accordingly.

a)  Some browsers support the Do Not Track function, which allows the User to automatically stop the collection of certain Data. However, not all websites are set up to enforce this option (discretionary).

b) Some browsers allow you to surf in “anonymous mode” limiting the amount of Data set on your computer and automatically deleting persistent Cookies placed on your device when you finish browsing.In this case, the Website will not detect the User, the pages viewed and the related Cookies will not be stored in the history. However, the anonymous browsing function does not guarantee anonymity on the Internet, because it just deleted Cookies in your browser, but not the ones processed by website managers and connectivity providers.

c) In all browsers it is possible to delete Cookies manually. However, please pay attention that new Cookies are downloaded at every connection to the Internet, so that the User has to erase the Cookies periodically. If desired, some browsers offer automated systems for periodic deletion of Cookies.

2) by express refusal to consent – generally required only for profiling Cookies – in the event that the Website uses a latest generation banner.

The User can find information on how to manage consent to Cookies with some of the most popular browsers, for example, at the following addresses: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

With reference to any identifiers used by third-parties, Users can manage their settings and withdraw their consent by visiting the related opt-out link (if available), using tools described in the third-party’s privacy policy or by contacting its Data Controller directly.

With regard to Google Analytics, if the Website support Google Analytics Javascript code (analytics.js, gtag.js) version, it is possible for the User to exercise the opt-out/disable Google Analytics by clicking here.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Users can also get information from YourOnlineChoices (EU), Network Advertising Initiative (USA), Digital Advertising Alliance (USA), DAAC (Canada), DDAI (Giappone) or other similar services. Therefore, the User is invited to consult also these websites.
