Cookie Policy

Introduction
In addition to the privacy policy available on the website www.zanardifonderie.com (hereinafter “Site”), and in compliance with the reference legal framework, Zanardi Fonderie S.p.A. hereby informs you about the types, purposes and methods of use and management of the cookies used on the Site by Zanardi Fonderie S.p.A.  (hereinafter “Company” or “Data controller”).

 

Reference legal framework

The reference legal framework, to date, consists of:

  • The provisions of Directive 2002/58/EC (so-called ePrivacy Directive) and subsequent modifications, as transposed into national law by article 122 of Italian Leg. Decree No. 196 of 30 June 2003 (hereinafter Code); by Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereinafter ‘Regulation’), specifically concerning the notion of consent referred to in Articles 4, point 11) and 7 and recital 32, as most recently interpreted by the WP29 Guidelines adopted on 10 April 2018, ratified by the European Data Protection Board on 25 May 2018 and replaced, lastly, by Guidelines 05/2020 on consent under Regulation 2016/679 adopted on 4 May 2020;
  • by the Provision of the Data Protection Authority no. 229, of 8 May 2014, aimed at “identifying simplified ways to give users on-line access to the policy on how so-called cookies are stored on their terminals by the Internet sites they visit” as well as “providing appropriate information on how to proceed with the acquisition of their consent, where required by law”.

 

Cookie definition

Cookies are normally text strings which the websites, (so-called publisher or “first-party), visited by the user or different websites or web servers (so-called third-party”), place and store on a terminal device within the user’s availability.

These text strings are saved and then, resent to the website which issued them each time the page is visited. This allows websites to identify the user both for the duration of the session and for longer periods.

The Site can, therefore, automatically adapt to the user, improving the browsing experience. Cookies also provide the website manager with information on user navigation, to obtain statistical data on the use of the site and improve navigation.

 

Types of cookies

Based on the legislation for the protection of personal data, cookies can be divided into “technical” cookies for which the user’s consent is not required, and “profiling” cookies for which the user’s consent is, on the other hand, required.

 

More specifically:


Technical cookies

Technical cookies are only used to “send a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an IT company service explicitly requested by the contractor or the user to provide this service” (see Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code).

This type of cookie is further divided into:

Browsing/session cookies. These are essential cookies for browsing the Site and using all its features, such as maintaining the session and accessing restricted areas. They are strictly necessary because, without them, it would not be possible to provide the requested services. These cookies do not collect information for commercial purposes.

Analytics cookies. They collect and analyse information on the Site used by the visitors (pages visited, number of accesses, time spent on the Site, etc.) to optimise Site management. They are comparable to technical cookies only if:

  • they are used solely to produce aggregated statistics and in relation to a single website or a single mobile application;
  • at least the fourth part of the IP address is masked for third-party cookies;
  • third parties abstain from combining these analytics cookies with other processes (customer files or statistics on visits to other sites) or from sending them to third parties

Functionality cookies. They allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. the language) to provide the user with a better browsing experience. The information collected by this type of cookie is anonymous.

The Site works best if technical cookies are enabled.


Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are used to trace specific, identified or identifiable subjects, specific actions or behavioural patterns recurring in the use of the features offered (pattern) to group the different profiles into uniform clusters of different sizes, so that it is possible to send increasingly targeted advertising messages, i.e. in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing on-line

 

Third party cookies

When browsing the Site, cookies may be installed by other sites, managed by other parties (third parties). In this case, the Site Owner only acts as a technical intermediary between the user and these third parties.

The settings of the browser used to navigate allow the user to both prevent the installation of cookies on the device used and also to delete them.
