Introduction

Cookies are usually blocks of text that the websites (so-called publisher or “first party”) visited by the user or different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”) place and store inside an end device at the user’s disposal (e.g. a personal computer, a Tablet, a smartphone, or another device that is able to store information).

The software for browsing the Internet and the operation of these devices, for example the browsers, can store the cookies and then transmit them again to the websites that generated them when the user visits the websites again, thus maintaining a memory of the user’s interaction with one or more websites.

The information encoded in the cookies can include personal data like an IP address, a user name, a unique identifier or an email address, but can also contain non-personal data like language settings or information on the type of device that a person is using the browse the website.

The cookies can thus perform a vast range of important functions, including authentication, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, facilitating enjoyment of online content, etc. They can be for example used to track the products in an online shopping cart or the information used to fill in an electronic form. The so-called “authentication” cookies are particularly important when the person accessing certain services like for example payment has to be checked.

The same result can also be achieved by using other instruments, (so-called “active identifiers” and “passive identifiers”) that enable processing that is similar to what has been indicated above to be carried out.

Fingerprinting is one of the “passive” instruments that is being increasingly used. This is a technique that enables the device to be identified that is used by the user by collecting information on the specific configuration of the device used by the party concerned. This technique can be used to achieve profiling aims also in order to display customized behavioural advertising and analyze and monitor the behaviour of visitors to the websites. For these reasons, fingerprinting and the additional tracking instruments must be included within the scope of these guidelines.

In the ruling of 8 May 2014, the Data Protection Authority, with effect in Italy from 2 June 2015, enacted European directive 2009/136/EC, which requires the administrators of Web pages to publish a notice concerning the cookie policy of the website that visitors are browsing. This policy also complies with the requirements of the EDPB European Data Protection Board’s 2020 guidelines on retargeting.

On this page you can find all the necessary information on the use made of cookies on the websites of www.venetacucine.com, and the means of identifying or disabling or deleting them.

The website could contain connections to other websites that have their own privacy policies that may be different from the positioning of this website. We are not therefore liable for the content of those other websites.

What the cookies are and how they are used

Cookies are small blocks of data (text files) on the user’s activities on the website, which are stored on the instrument (computer, smartphone or Tablet) of the user browsing the internet during the initial browsing on the website. The cookies are then retransmitted to the website when the user next visits the website to enable our website to recognize the user automatically (or other users using the same instrument) after the first visit and thus improve the user’s experience.

Their operation depends entirely on the user’s browser and they can be enabled by the user or not be enabled by the user.

In order to always ensure the best browsing experience, our website offers the best results with the cookies enabled. Almost all web browsers are set by default to accept cookies automatically.

Cookies can be:

  • "first party" when they are managed directly by the website administrator;
  • "third party" when the cookies are set up and managed by administrators who have nothing to do with the website visited by the user. Third-party cookies are the direct and exclusive responsibility of their administrator and the website administrator merely acts as an intermediary with regard to their installation.

Which cookies we use and why

The website uses or can use, also in combination, the following types of cookie.

  • Permanent or "persistent" cookies: these cookies remain stored in the device even after the website has been abandoned or after the browser has been shut down: in particular, they remain until their expiry data or until they are eliminated manually by the user. Persistent cookies perform many functions that are in the user’s interest (like for example storing the password), but in some cases they may be used for promotional purposes.
  • Session (or temporary) cookies: they expire and are deleted when the user closes the Web browser, terminating the session on the website. Session cookies normally enable the user to access customized services and to fully exploit the website’s functions, thus avoiding resorting to other IT techniques that may breach the confidentiality of the user’s browsing history.
  • Technical cookies (so-called “necessary” cookies), for example for transmitting session identifiers that are necessary for secure and efficient exploration of the website. These cookies avoid resorting to other IT techniques that may breach the confidentiality of the user’s browsing history.
    For the use of technical cookies, the law merely requires a privacy notice to be issued to the interested party, like this privacy notice, i.e. even without specific banners on the website.
    For all non-technical cookies, on the other hand, installation requires the user’s prior and unequivocal consent: by publication of a synthetic banner that can be seen upon first “landing” on the website, the user is able to express in a granular and specific manner his choices about the categories of cookie to be authorized (so-called preference centre cookies). This analytical cookie is provided by a link so that the choice can be deemed to be valid.
    The user can give or withhold consent not to the use of single cookies installed but to the use of broader categories of cookie or to cookies of specific manufacturers and/or intermediaries with whom the website has entered into a commercial relationship.
  • Analytics cookies these cookies may be temporary or permanent and enable statistical information on visits to be collected and analyzed in an aggregated and/or disaggregated manner with respect to the accesses (e.g. user’s geographical area of origin, instrument of access used, age, etc) and in general with respect to the behaviour of the users on the website in order to improve the user’s experience and the content supplied.
    These analytical cookies can be classed as technical cookies and thus do not require prior consent only if:
    • they are used solely to produce aggregate statistics (i.e. without direct and unique identification of the person concerned, so-called singling out) and in relation to a sole website or a sole mobile application, so as not to permit tracking of the browsing history of a person using different applications or browsing different websites;
    • if the cookie refers to not just one but to several devices so that it creates reasonable uncertainty about the IT identity of the receiving party (e.g. at least the fourth component of the IP address inside the cookies of third parties is masked);
    • the third parties refrain from combining such analytics cookies, even if part of the cookies is masked, with other processing (customer files or statistics on visits to other websites, for example) or from transmitting them to third parties.

    One example of a first party cookie occurs when the website uses log files (i.e. records the chronology of the operations performed) and register files (that include IP addresses, browser types, the operating system used by the user device, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date, time, input and output pages and the number of clicks, but also the pages visited on the website, the third-party websites from which the user comes). All this is used for analyzing the behaviour patterns of the users and administrating and optimizing the website. The information that is thus collected is not of a personal nature because the data are collected and analyzed anonymously.
  • "Profiling" (or advertising) cookies (always permanent) are used for tracing back to determined, identified or identifiable parties specific behavioural actions or patterns that are recurrent in the use of the offered functions in order to group the different profiles (aggregated, i.e. anonymous or not) inside homogeneous clusters of different size so that it is possible to send focused advertising messages, i.e. messages in line with the user’s preferences displayed through online browsing (instead of the general advertising directed at everybody – so-called “behavioural advertising”).
  • Social cookies: these are third-party cookies, i.e. they are supplied directly by the domains of the most common social media networks that are linked to the first party website (e.g. VENETA CUCINE) by links to official pages, and buttons for sharing content and links. Using these buttons and functions entails an exchange of information (e.g. texts, photographs, videos, etc) with these websites. The interactions and the information acquired from this website are in all cases subject to the user’s privacy settings for every single social network. If a service is installed for interacting with social networks, even if the users do not use the service, the service may collect browsing data on the pages on which the service is installed.

The installation of all non-technical cookies is subject to the prior and informed consent of the subscriber or user in the simplified forms specified by Ruling 8.5.2014 of the Data Protection Authority as supplemented by the Data Protection Authority’s guidelines of 10 December 2020 on the use of cookies and other tracking tools also in the light of guidelines 5/2020 of EDPB European Data Protection Board, i.e. by publication of a synthetic banner (so-called “short notice”) that is viewable by the user at the moment of first “landing” on the website that enables a further unique use of the website to be generated to which the user can implicitly give consent, or, alternatively that gives access to an analytic cookie (i.e. complete) notice, within which the user can give or withhold consent provided it is not with reference to the single cookies installed but in relation to wider categories of cookies and specific manufacturers and/or intermediaries with which the website has established a commercial relationship (so-called “granular consent”).

In particular, if other cookies are also processed, VENETA CUCINE uses a banner of suitable dimensions that appears immediately that contains:

  • adequate notice of the fact that the website uses technical cookies and, only subject to the user’s consent, profiling cookies or other tracking instruments indicating the relevant purposes (so-called “short notice”);
  • the link to the privacy policy containing complete information on a second layer, including the other recipients of the personal data, the period of storage of the data and the exercise of the rights specified in the regulations;
  • notice that continuing to browse by selecting an explicit command or an element contained on the page below the banner gives consent to profiling;
  • a command for accepting the placing of all the cookies or the use of other tracking techniques;
  • the link to another dedicated area in which the user can choose analytically the functions, third parties and the cookies, which are possibly also grouped by categories that it is wished to install, and in which the user can use two further commands to give consent to the use of all the cookies unless it was given previously or can withdraw previously given consent also in a single step; also this choice of the user is suitably documented by the data controller.
  • a command (e.g. an X in the top right corner) to close the banner without giving consent to the use of the cookies or the other profiling techniques, maintaining the default settings.

Possible user actions based on such scrolling or on continuing browsing inside the same Web page or selecting an element of the page like an image or a link is in all cases part of a more complex process in which the user is able to generate an event that is recordable and documentable with a guarantee of integrity on the website server that can be qualified as a positive action that is suitable for clearly showing the desire to give consent to the processing.

The user does not have to again consent to the installation of the cookies if consent has already been given, acquired validly (and the data controller is able to prove this) and there has been no change to the cookies with respect to the list of cookies for which consent was given previously or when it is impossible for the administrator of the website to know whether a cookie has already been stored in the device to be transmitted again when the same user again visits the website that generated the cookie. For example, if the user chooses to delete the cookies that have been legitimately installed in the user’s device and the data controller has not adopted another system for keeping track of the consent given.

In all cases, the user is guaranteed the right to withdraw consent to the cookies at any moment by accessing the panel that is made available to the user if the user clicks on the cookies banner that is published on the home page of the website of VENETA CUCINE. From this reserved area, the user can request further details about both the types of cookie and the list of any third-party recipients of the cookies.

Lastly, VENETA CUCINE does not use any “take it or leave it” mechanism in which the user is obliged to consent to receiving profiling cookies without which he or she cannot access the website.

List of the cookies that are actually present on the website

The aforesaid general introduction does not automatically imply that this website uses all the categories of cookie indicated above.
The complete list of cookies used by the VENETA CUCINE website is contained in the banner published on the website.

Statistical analytics cookies

The website uses the cookies of Google Analytics, which is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (a third-party American company located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), for the purposes of browsing history, visit counts, and browsing statistics on the users of our website. Google Analytics is not used to collect any strictly personal data but only aggregated statistical data on the age, gender, and interest preferences of our users (in order to assess better the use of our website and the activities of the visitor and tailor the services provided to the detected behaviour as explained above).

The "Analytics" function is in fact configured by default to mask significantly the final portions of the IP address of the user/visitor, and this means that the datum on the IP address collected and visible to us is already anonymous so that the analytics cookie does not allow our company to trace, even indirectly – i.e. by further processing – the identity of the user/visitor.

These Google cookies are stored in servers in the U.S.A. or in other countries. Google reserves the right to transfer the information collected with its cookie to third parties where this is required by law or where the third party processes information on its behalf.

The "Analytics" function is in particular configured to mask significantly, within the area of the member states of the European Union or in other countries belonging to the European Economic Area, portions of the IP address of the user/visitor and thus the data relating to the IP address that are thus collected are already anonymized at origin so that the analytical cookie does not allow the user’s/visitor’s identify to be traced, even indirectly. Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be sent to Google servers and abbreviated within the United States. For greater information, go to the following URL: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage
For this reason, as website administrator VENETA CUCINE is not subject to any obligation or measure specified by cookies regulations.

Google also ensures that it does not associate the user’s IP address with any data possessed by Google in order to obtain a more detailed user profile.

The user can moreover disable selectively the action of Google Analytics by downloading and installing in his or her own browser the additional opt-out component supplied by Google for its own browser using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it

For any further information on Google Analytics, see the Privacy Policy at the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=it

This website uses the conversion monitoring statistics service of Google Adwords, supplied by Google Inc., which links the data originating from the Google AdWords advertisements network (see above) to the actions performed within this website. This service uses navigation data and cookies.

The privacy notices on operation and consent to the use of Google cookies are available at the following links:

The user can at any moment reject Google Analytics cookies by downloading and installing the plugin browser available at the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it

Remarketing and behavioural targeting

Remarketing and/or behavioural targeting enables a website and outside partners to communicate, optimize and provide online advertisements based on previous use of this website by the user. This activity is performed by tracking browsing data and the use of cookies, which information is transmitted to the outside partners to whom the remarketing and behavioural targeting is linked.

This website does not use personal profiling cookies, i.e. cookies based on personal identification data.

The website uses Remarketing Google Ads, a remarketing and behavioural targeting service provided by Google Inc., which links the activity of this website to the Google Ads advertising network (advertisements of the Google Display network) and the DoubleClick cookie, i.e. online advertisements based on categories of general interest consisting of categories of target users identified through previous browsing history.

In particular, our website uses:

  • remarketing lists on the AdWords search network and advertisements of the Goole Display network, i.e. online advertisements based on categories of general interest expressed by categories of target users identified through previous browsing history;
  • the following Google Analytics advertising functions:
    • Remarketing with Google Analytics
    • Google Display Network Impression Reporting (if used via AdWords)
    • Additions through DoubleClick for Publishers platform (this is an advertising service provided by Google Inc. with which VENETA CUCINE can run advertising campaigns together with outside advertising networks with which VENETA CUCINE, unless otherwise specified in this document, has no direct relationship)
    • Reports on demographic data and on interests of Google Analytics

that enable additional functions to be activated that are not available through the standard implementations of Google Analytics and the relative cookies (in particular, in addition to the data already collected by standard implementation of Google Analytics, the collection of data on the user’s browsing provided by the Google advertising cookies and the anonymous identifiers).

Other advertising cookies are processed by VENETA CUCINE through the following services:

  • Google Ads conversion monitoring

Social cookies

these cookies are third party cookies, i.e. supplied directly by the domains of the most common social media networks that are linked to our website by links to official pages, and buttons for sharing content and links. Using these buttons and functions implies an exchange of information (e.g. texts, photographs, videos, etc) with the websites. In particular:

Facebook:
The social plugins of Facebook are managed by Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 (California – USA). The Facebook plugins are shown by the Facebook logo or the "Like-Button" ("Like" or "I like") that are on the web pages of the website. For an overview of Facebook plugins, go to the link: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. These plugins are used to share the content. In order to use these plugins, Facebook provides a cookie that is necessary for their operation. When you visit the pages of the website containing the plugin, the plugin makes a direct connection between the browser and Facebook server. Facebook then receives the information that you have visited the website with your IP address. By clicking on the Facebook "Like" button whilst you are connected to your Facebook account you can link the content of the pages of the visited website to your Facebook profile. In this manner, Facebook can link the visit to the website to the user account that you are using. If you do not wish Facebook to make this link, you have to log out from your Facebook account before accessing the website. We are not familiar with the content of the transmitted data or with the use that Facebook make of it. For further information, see the privacy notice of Facebook at the links http://it-it.facebook.com/policy.php and https://www.facebook.com/help/206635839404055

Twitter:
The Twitter social plugin is managed by Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). You can consult an analytical illustration of the plugins at: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-for-websites/overview. See Twitter Privacy Policy at: http://twitter.com/privacy.

Pinterest:
The plugins of the Pinterest social network are managed by Pinterest Inc., 635 High Street, Palo Alto, CA, 94301 (California – USA). The different logos containing the plugin (e.g. “Pin-it-Button" or the button "P″) can be viewed at the link: http://business.pinterest.com/pin-it-button/. When Internet pages are visited of the website containing this plugin, a link is created between your computer and the Pinterest servers and the plugin is shown on the Internet page by communication with your browser. In order to do so, the information on the pages of the website that you have visited are transmitted both to the Pinterest server in the USA and to your IP address. Transmission occurs also for users who are not registered with Pinterest. If you are also a Pinterest user and are connected to Pinterest, at the moment in which you use the plugin, the information received through your visit to the website is linked to your Pinterest account and made known to other users. If you do not want Pinterest to link the information to the data of your Pinterest account, you have to exit Pinterest before visiting the Internet website that uses the plugin. See more details on the Pinterest privacy policy at http://it.about.pinterest.com/privacy/

Managing the personal data and the methods for eliminating these social cookies is organized by the social media websites: the user should consult the respective privacy notices of each website by following these links:

These cookies are used completely anonymously; personal information is not collected until the user intends to supply it by explicitly sending contact and/or information request forms.

Further information on privacy and the use of social cookies can be found directly on the websites of the respective third-party administrators.

How cookies work and how to disable them

Accepting or rejecting cookies is your right.

By default, browsers generally accept the use of cookies. In order to enable the website to operate correctly, exploit its functions and use it to the full, we recommend accepting the use of cookies.
