Cookie law 3 June 2015

  • The web sites’ managers will inform the users and obtain their consent for the installation of cookies

Italian Data Protection Authority with measure of 8 May 2014 "Finding simplified ways for informative and for acquisition of consent to the use of cookie" decreed a set of rules that determine the method of use cookie that will be officially mandatory from June 3, 2015.

In this document is defined what is meant by cookie "small text strings that the sites visited by the user sends his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being retransmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same user ".

Of these are identified two main categories: "technical" and "profiling" depending on whether it's technical aspects, which are used for example to ensure a normal navigation and use of the content of the website, or that are designed to collect and monitor information about users as tastes and habits.

When the user arrives in a website will then display a banner informing him about cookies and asks you to allow installation. Users thus have the chance to decide whether and how to be tracked by choosing to give consent to any purpose or by choosing a few. The screen will also be descriptions of the purpose of the cookie. Once you have selected these preferences are saved and cookies executed.

The legislation is in some points of view complex as it aims to standardize a variety of aspects including, for example, the use of cookies by "third parties" (ie cookies installed by a different site through the site you are visiting) and especially because it covers substantially all of the subjects that have a website.

In any case the goal is to protect the user and make him informed so that he can give his consent on an informed basis.
