Cookie Policy updated in accordance with Provision of 10 June 2021

Dear User,

A.N.C.I. Servizi s.r.l. with a sole shareholder, in its capacity as proprietor of the website www.themicam.com and Data Controller, hereby informs you that:

  1. The website uses cookies

Cookies are small text files that are deposited by a website on the user’s hard disk, thus identifying the user’s browser unambiguously or enabling access to information on the user’s terminal. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies are used to speed up web traffic analysis, to communicate when a specific website is visited, and to allow web applications to send information to individual users.

Why does the website use cookies?

This website uses technical cookies that are necessary for the website to function and for improving the browsing experience of users. In particular, the website uses browsing and functionality cookies as well as third-party analytical cookies (Google Analytics).

The website uses cookies to provide customers with a browsing experience that is as fluid and simple as possible. Thanks to cookies there is no need to receive or add the same information when you visit the website again. Cookies are also used to optimise the performance of the website.

  1. There are different types of cookies and various means of classification.

Based on the life cycle:

Session cookies: Session cookies are added to a computer during a session in which a website is visited and are removed when the user leaves the website and closes his/her browser. Cookies are memorised in the temporary memory of a computer. Session cookies allow a website to follow you as a user passing from one page to another on the website.

Websites do not have their own memory so they use cookies for this purpose.

A useful comparison is to think of these cookies as keys. When your computer already has the keys, the website can immediately let you in instead of treating you like a new visitor each time you view the page.

These types of cookies are not memorised in a persistent manner on users’ devices and are deleted when the browser is closed.

Persistent cookies: persistent cookies are placed on a computer for a longer period of time. They are only removed after the expiry time of the cookie has elapsed or until they are removed by users. This means that for the entire duration of the cookie’s life-cycle the information on the cookie will be transmitted to the server each time a user visits the website or each time the user views a resource belonging to that website from another website (e.g. an ad).

Since these types of cookies remain on a computer for a longer period of time than session cookies, persistent cookies can be used for multiple purposes like memorising access details and remembering your preferences or settings. Persistent cookies are mainly used to monitor visitors when they browse a website in order “to see” what a visitor likes so that his/her experience can be improved.

Depending on their origin:

First party cookies (i.e. those issued directly by the Controller): these are cookies sent directly to the browser from the website you are visiting and which are managed directly by the owner and/or manager of the website.

Third party cookies (i.e. those issued directly by third parties offering services that are functional to the correct use of the website): third party cookies belong to different domains to the one shown in the address bar. These types of cookies generally appear when web pages have content from external websites, e.g. advertising banners. They allow the chronology of a user’s browsing to be monitored and are often employed by advertisers, in an attempt to provides relevant and personalised adverts to each user.

Based on the use/purpose of use:

Technical cookies: they are used for browsing (since they are functionally necessary to scroll up and down the page, consult contents, provide a service) and to facilitate access and use of a website by users.

Statistical cookies: these are used directly by the owner of the website in order to optimise use thereof as they allow information to be collected in an aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the website.

Cookies for memorising preferences: (also known as Functional cookies) are cookies that are useful for promoting an effective use of a website by users and thus promote a personalised browsing experience.

Marketing and profiling (advertising) cookies: these cookies are used to guess the browsing “profile” of a user, in order to propose advertising messages that are consistent with his/her online interests.

Social network cookies: these cookies allow social networking platforms such as Facebook to identify their users and collect information even when they are browsing on other websites.

This website DOES NOT use tracking tools.

What are your rights and how can you exercise them?

The rights granted to data subjects by the GDPR are:

art. 15 – right of access, i.e. the data subject/user has the right to obtain information on which of his/her data are processed by the controller, the purposes being pursued, the time for which said data will be retained and the procedures with which they are processed.

art. 16 – right of rectification, i.e. the data subject/user has a right to verify the correctness of his/her data and to request any amendments/integrations.

art. 17 – right to erasure, i.e. the data subject/user may request the erasure of his/her data if specific conditions are satisfied, such as, for example, the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes it was collected for.

art. 18 – right to restriction of processing, i.e. the data subject/user may request a restriction in the processing that can be carried out on his/her data in the event of specific conditions, such as, for example data for a specific purpose was acquired from the data subject in an unlawful manner.

art. 20 – right to data portability, i.e. the user/data subject has the right to receive his/her data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format and, where technically feasible, to obtain the transfer of these data to another controller without hindrance when data are processed with automated instruments and the processing is based on the consent of the User, a contract the User is a party to or to contractual measures connected thereto

art. 21 – right to object, i.e. the user/data subject has the right to oppose to the processing of his/her data when this takes place on a legal basis other than consent for reasons connected to his/her specific situation; when, however, the legal basis is consent, the data subject/user can object at any time, but the processing that has been carried out until that time remains lawful.

art. 22 – automated individual decision-making, including profiling: without prejudice to specific derogations that are expressly set forth by the above article, the data subject/user has the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or which similarly significantly affects him/her.

To exercise the rights listed above or for more information, simply send an email to the DPO at the email address: privacy@assocalzaturifici.it stating the wording: “exercising of rights under the GDPR” in the subject line and specifying the right that you wish to exercise in the body of the email.

The Data Controller will respond to requests to exercise rights in accordance with the deadlines set forth in article 12 paragraph 3 GDPR. Please note that it is your right to present a complaint to a supervisory authority (the Italian supervisory authority for the protection of personal data www.garanteprivacy.it) or to take action before the judicial authorities with an appeal pursuant to article 140 bis Privacy code, legislative decree 101/2018.

Should the Data Controller intend to process personal data for a purpose other than that for which it was collected, the data subject will be provided in advance with information on this new purpose and all other pertinent information, and the Data Controller will seek his or her prior consent.
