Purpose and principles of the data processing

In compliance with legal data protection obligations, this page describes the methods used to manage the website to process the personal data of users browsing the website and interacting with the web services that can be accessed electronically from the address: www.venetacucine.com.

VENETA CUCINE will use your personal data to manage access to the portal and to the services that it contains, manage technical dossiers, perform all the tasks that are necessary or useful for constantly improving the service provided and ascertain responsibility for offences committed against the website and/or illicit acts committed via the website. Further specific purposes for which the individual processing is used can be defined in detailed by additional notices provided in connection with the various services on the portal.

Consulting the website can involve processing data on identified or identifiable persons. The personal data provided by the users who consult the website are used by the recipient of the communication in order to respond to the requests received.

The advisory notice shown below consists of a series of aspects which can be consulted. The user can open the paragraphs using the arrow.

    • Type of data

      The web forms on the websites never ask you for “particular” personal data (personal data that reveal racial and ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or other types of belief, political opinions, membership of parties, trade unions, religious, philosophical, political or trade union associations and personal data that may reveal the state of health or sexual orientation) or “judicial” personal data (criminal record data or data relating to you as a defendant or person under criminal investigation, etc). The data that we process can fall into three general categories: browsing data, data supplied actively by the data subject and data gathered from third parties.

      Browsing data
      When (also via smartphone or tablet) you access this website and use our services, the IT systems and the software procedures used to run the website acquire during normal operation certain information about you that can be classed as "personal data" that are implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

      These data include the hardware model, the operating system and version, information on the mobile network and on the country from which the website was accessed, the time of the request, the method used to send the request to the server, the access time, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numeric code showing the status of the reply given by the server (successful, error, etc), the browsing history within the website with particular reference to the pages visited and other parameters relating to the operating system and to the user's IT environment (browser used, version, geographic position, last page visited before accessing the services of the VENETA CUCINE SPA website) and the unique device identifiers (e.g. IP address or dominion names of the computers used by the users, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) address, and the MAC (Media Access Control) address.

      This information is not collected to be assigned directly to identified data subjects, but by its nature the information could in theory enable the users to be identified by processing and linking it to data held by third parties (in particular, third-party providers of Internet connectivity services).

      But we use these data only to obtain aggregate and anonymous statistical information on the use of the website to better understand the user's browsing behaviour in order to offer the user a better browsing experience, to enable the technical functions of the website, to control and optimize its operation, to improve the quality of the services that it offers and ensure the maintenance of the relative database and support IT infrastructure.

      After being processed anonymously, these browsing data are erased within 12 months of being collected.

      The browsing data can also be used to ascertain responsibility in the case of offences committed against the website (malware attacks, spamming, unauthorized access to IT systems, etc) and in this case the browsing data are kept for as long as necessary to protect the rights of the company and/or third parties.

      Data supplied by the user
      Such data are:

      • information sent by the users optionally and voluntarily to the addresses shown on the website (e.g. email address, subject of the email, company title or name, first name and surname, etc);
      • the personal data supplied by the users to take advantage of the services available on the website or to take part in initiatives promoted by the website;
      • the personal data supplied by users who request alerts and/or publicity;
      • the personal data supplied by users who send in job applications (“curriculum vitae”, etc.).

      Processing may or may not use electronic instruments in accordance with principles of propriety, legality and transparency so as to protect at all times the confidentiality and rights of the data subject in accordance with current legislation.

    • Purposes of the processing

      a) fulfilling user’s support and contact requests e.g. regarding the dispatch of publicity or clarifications (newsletters, replies to enquiries, notices, price lists, other documentation, etc),

      b) providing the service or supplying the product requested by the user and organizing all the management and production activities that are required for the supply (including dealings with suppliers and management of payments by credit card, bank transfer or other methods),

      c) meeting the obligations set by law, regulations and/or EU regulations;

      d) meeting all legal obligations connected to or arising from the contractual dealings with the data subject and/or the organization to which the data subject belongs

      (known as the “main purposes”)

      e) The gathered data will also be processed for the purposes of:

      f1) direct marketing (market research, dispatch of commercial and promotional communications, and newsletters, via any automated means of communication, email, telephone with operator, text messages, chat messages, social networks, etc.) or non-automated means of communication (ordinary post); the data will be processed only subject to the consent of the data subject (received by online and/or hard copy forms); consent is always optional (see below).

      f2) Basic* profiling (also analysis, including forecasting analysis of information on:

      • In the case of contacts inside companies that are our customers or possible customers: first name and surname of the data subject, name of the organization and sector in which it operates, role, contact data such as headquarters of the data subject’s organization, organization’s email and telephone numbers, topics of professional or financial interest, and data subject’s attendance at events organized by us and/or our partners);
      • In the case of consumers or one-person companies: first name and surname of the data subject, contact details such as place of abode or domicile, email and work or private telephone numbers, financial or material area of business, topics of professional or financial interest, data subject’s attendance at events organized by us and/or our partners).

      * Profiling concerns only natural persons. Information on parties that are not natural persons is thus not covered by the privacy regulations can be accordingly freely profiled by ourselves.

      Processing basic profiling does not require the prior consent of the data subject (for the reasons that are explained more fully in the next section “Legal basis of the processing”).

      This task has two goals: understanding customers better, both as groups and individuals, and analyzing the efficacy of marketing to develop and update products, services and offers to suit the preferences of our target customers.

      Profiling aims to align the goods and services that we offer on current and potential demand, gauge the results of specific promotions, take corrective measures to improve company results (e.g. reducing the risks of investing resources in topic areas that are of marginal interest for the target) and the efficacy of the commercial processes (e.g. by ascertaining how many of the messages and promotional communications that you received from us you actually saw and clicked on), limiting the dispatch of promotional communications that are not relevant to your probable expectations and needs or limiting dispatch via unwelcome channels).

      Profiling does not exclude you from specific advantages or prevent you from freely exercising your rights with regard to the personal data that we process; in particular, it does not affect the data subject’s freedom to use our ordinary services (e.g. pre-registration on-line, purchasing services).

    • Legal basis of the processing
      • In the case of main purposes, processing is necessary, depending on circumstances, to implement precontractual measures adopted at the request of the data subject (e.g. requests for clarifications, dispatch of information or commercial offers), to perform a contract to which the data subject is a party or to comply with a legal requirement to which we are subject (e.g. to permit verification of compliance with legal and contractual obligations towards the data subject or towards third parties by the administrative and tax authorities, the board of statutory auditors or the outside auditors, etc) and/or based on the legitimate interest:

        a) of our company (despite the interests and rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject) in processing the data in order to be able to manage effectively and efficiently dealings with its users, customers and/or suppliers and in organizing the relative productive, organizational and management processes (including dealings with its own subcontractors and/or with holding companies, subsidiaries or affiliates pursuant to article 2359 of the Italian Civil Code or with companies subject to common control) in order to enable this objective to be achieved;

        b) of third parties in receiving from the data controller and processing the personal data i) in order to verify compliance with legal and contractual obligations towards the data subject or third parties (for example verification by the tax authorities of compliance with tax obligations, or verification by the board of statutory auditors or the outside auditors of compliance with legal obligations, etc) or ii) to be able to manage activities connected to the request of the data controller to receive support in managing dealings with data subjects.

      • In the case of secondary purposes (direct marketing, basic profiling) processing is based on:

        a) direct marketing to customers taking the form only of sending emails/newsletters only to promote goods and services that are similar to those that you have already purchased: based on our legitimate interest in promoting our products and/or services to current customers (so-called soft spam);

        b) direct marketing to customers taking the form only of sending emails/newsletters to promote goods and services of ours that are different from those that you may have already purchased: based on your specific consent to processing for this purpose that is not subsequently revoked;

        c) direct marketing to customers by automated instruments that are different from sending emails/newsletters (e.g. dispatch of text messages, social messages, instant messaging like Whatsapp etc.): based on your prior specific consent to processing for these purposes, which is not subsequently revoked;

        d) basic profiling, based on our legitimate interest to have at our disposal a minimum information set for planning direct marketing both to potential and existing customers of ours;

      You can give or withhold your consent, separately respectively for i) our processing and ii) our divulging data to independent third-party data controllers for the same purposes.

    • Thinking behind and forms of organization of the processing

      Thinking behind and forms of organization of the processing will be closely connected to the individual aims set out above. The processing will be electronic, computerized and/or hard copy. During processing, the data are subjected to protective measures activated by VENETA CUCINE in order to protect the data against the risk of unauthorized access or prohibited processing. For example, personal data managed at the computerized level can be consulted only by authorized VENETA CUCINE staff who access the various processing programmes or enter data by keying in obligatory personal passwords and who do so only within the preset limits of use.

      Company staff who process the data.
      The collected data are processed by our in-house delegates who need to know them in order to perform their duties (e.g. commercial department, marketing department, accounts department, company IT system maintenance technicians, etc.).

    • Compulsory and optional divulging data and consequences of not providing data

      In the case of main purposes, it is compulsory to provide the data if they are required to comply with legal requirements and failure to provide the data will prevent the contract being signed with the data subject and/or with the organization to which the data subject belongs; in the other cases, you do not have to supply the data but in this case we cannot embark on precontractual dealings, online registration of the data subject with the website and/or the provision of services or sale of the products/services for which we require registration and/or the data to be supplied.

      The non-registered user can browse the website and view only content and materials that are available without registration.

      For secondary purposes that require your prior consent (direct marketing) and, separately, for the purposes of our divulging data to third parties who process them for the same purposes in a different role from that of our data processors:

      • your consent is always voluntary (is freely given or denied);
      • withholding consent to processing will prevent us from processing and/or respectively divulging to third parties the data for such secondary purposes but will not interfere with our dealings with you or with your organization.
    • Are there cases of simplified consent or exceptions to the obligation to give consent for direct marketing purposes?

      As is permitted by current legislation and in order to enable VENETA CUCINE to meet its privacy obligations in compliance with the principles of simplification (specified in the General Ordinance of the Privacy Guarantor of 15.05.2013 - “Consent to personal data processing for “direct marketing” purposes via traditional and automated contact instruments”), the consent requested by VENETA CUCINE relating to the secondary purposes of profiling and direct marketing is standard and comprehensive for all possible means used for processing for marketing purposes (electronic/computerized, hard copy), and for all possible direct marketing purposes (so consent does not have to be given for each separate marketing goal pursued).

      NB: VENETA CUCINE can process personal data by using phone calls with operators and using ordinary mail for the aforesaid secondary purposes without the prior specific consent of the data subject (this does not affect the data subject’s right to oppose the processing using simplified methods and also electronically by registering in the Public Register of Oppositions (http://www.registrodelleopposizioni.it/) as specified by Presidential Decree 178/2010) the data subject’s telephone number and other personal data on subscribers found in hard-copy and electronic directories available to the public.

      If VENETA CUCINE asks you for your phone number – for direct marketing purposes – and you have given optional and specific consent for its use, VENETA CUCINE can process it even if you have registered the number with the Public Register of Oppositions because you have divulged the number and it has not been taken from public telephone directories.

    • Does the data subject’s consent to the data being processed for profiling and direct marketing purposes also apply to divulging the data to third parties?

      VENETA CUCINE divulges some data to other companies belonging to the VENETA CUCINE Group or to third parties who by contract and because they are "data processors" are delegated to process the data (for example to transmit advertising messages) on behalf of VENETA CUCINE. These data are processed on the basis of your specific consent to marketing (including divulging to third parties for marketing purposes) that you have already given to VENETA CUCINE.

      VENETA CUCINE can also, if you give further separate additional consent that is documented and expressly voluntary, have data divulged or transferred to third parties who process them as co-data controllers or independent data controllers (they are normally outside partners in the promotion of events) who use the data for direct marketing or profiling purposes).

    • Revoking consent

      Also after giving your consent to your data being processed for profiling and direct marketing purposes, as data subject you can at any moment inform VENETA CUCINE that you have changed your mind by using one of the following alternative methods:

      • click on the “unsubscribe” button that is available to the user at the bottom of the promotional emails sent to the data subject; an email will be sent automatically to VENETA CUCINE and the name of the data subject will be registered on a list preventing VENETA CUCINE from sending any direct marketing to the data subject;
      • inform VENETA CUCINE by ordinary post or email that you are revoking consent (in this case the revocation will be recorded manually in the company’s CRM system). This method of communication is always necessary if the data subject wants to express a more detailed wish, whether regarding the use of certain media and not others (e.g. only hard copy, only electronic, no marketing sent by automated systems, etc) for the receipt subject to consent of marketing communications of VENETA CUCINE, or certain types of possible marketing (opting for example to receive only newsletters and not invitations to our events);
      • simply send a clear telephone message to VENETA CUCINE revoking consent. When this opt-out request is received VENETA CUCINE will remove and erase the data from the databases used for processing for direct marketing purposes and, where possible, will inform any third parties to which the data have been sent for direct marketing purposes that the data have been erased.

        Merely receiving a request for erasure will be automatically considered to be a confirmation of erasure.

      • On the other hand, if you wish to revoke consent to receiving advertising that arrives from social channels (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.), you must send the revocation directly to the individual social platform, using the methods that will be made available each time by the social platform and/or by the browser that you use (VENETA CUCINE is technically unable to influence the social platforms of third parties for this purpose).

      This opposition will not affect any other current contractual activities.

    • Divulging data to third parties

      VENETA CUCINE divulges your personal data to third-party recipients only when this is necessary and useful for the data processing purpose to be achieved of providing the service or product that you requested, and in all cases divulges your personal data only after informing you and after receiving your consent to do so if your consent is required. Divulging to third parties will always be limited to the data that are strictly necessary for the respective purposes.

      Third-party recipients – who will be defined in detail below – will process the data, as appropriate, a) as “outside processors” (i.e. they process on our behalf and on the basis of our written instructions in order to ensure compliance with privacy regulations during processing and under our supervision), or b) as co-data controllers (i.e. on the basis of a written agreement governing the different activities and responsibilities in relation to personal data), or as independent data controllers (in this case they will provide the data subject with all the necessary legal information on the respective processing).

      As part of the main purposes and without prejudice to communication to third parties (e.g. tax authorities) in order to meet legal obligations or obligations arising from regulations or other EU standards, the data can be communicated by VENETA CUCINE to all parties whose involvement in the processing is reasonably necessary in the light of the services requested by the data subject and/or by regulatory obligations such as, merely by way of non-exhaustive example: other holding companies, subsidiaries or affiliates of the VENETA CUCINE Group and/or to partner third-party companies performing tasks that are inherent to or complement the supply of products or services products or services requested by the data subject (e.g. dealing with enquiries, estimates, orders, contracts, after-sales services), third parties appointed to perform tasks connected and/or instrumental to the processing (such as commercial agents, banks for handling receipts and payments, business information companies, debt collection companies, credit insurance companies, electronic payment services providers, couriers, carriers and shippers, factoring companies, insurance companies, lawyers and legal practices, chartered accountants, bookkeepers, auditors and auditing firms, members of supervisory organisms pursuant to Italian legislative decree D.lgs. 231/2001 relating to organizational models for the prevention of certain types of offence, trade unions, third parties appointed to perform web hosting services and/or maintenance of this website and/or the computer systems used by this website and/or the electronic records connected to the website; carriers and shippers entrusted with the shipment of goods; call centre service companies that provide customer support during events); public security authorities and computer forensics companies in the event of suspicion of crimes or other illegal acts being committed to the detriment of VENETA CUCINE and/or third parties.

      In order to make a payment to the website, an online service can be used that is supplied by the third-party supplier UNICREDIT S.P.A.

      In order to complete the purchase, the user must enter the required information in the relative space (e.g. credit card). These data will be processed by the provider of the payment service – who will act as an independent data controller, without passing through the VENETA CUCINE server, which will receive only the order code issued and the payment notification.

      Only in the case of processing for secondary purposes (profiling, direct marketing), pursuant to the General Ordinance of the Guarantor of 4 July 2013 entitled “Anti-spam guidelines” will we divulge your data – subject to your specific prior consent, see below – also to the following material or financial categories of third-party recipients: advertising and P.R. agencies, companies appointed to perform marketing analyses, advertising, communication and/or public relations companies, companies dealing with the design, printing and maintenance of advertising or promotional copy and/or its management on-line, website creation companies, web marketing companies, direct e-mailing companies (e.g. mail-up or the like), consultants and/or other bodies to which we assign tasks required to achieve said purposes; companies maintaining the computer systems in which they are found or by means of which our databases are processed; providers of electronic communication services and ICT; third-party commercial partners – even if they operate in productive sectors that are not including in the e-shop with which VENETA CUCINE activates co-marketing activities (e.g. VENETA CUCINE dealers, agents).

      VENETA CUCINE can also share some data (first name, surname, email) with third-party platforms of social media (e.g. Facebook, Google) that use them for the sole purpose of identifying other persons who are similar to the user who could be interested in VENETA CUCINE services and/or products, so that they can be publicized by the social media platforms.

      The data will not be divulged.

    • Transfer of data outside Italy

      VENETA CUCINE transfers personal data to Microsoft Corporation, located at 1 Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052, USA, which is the provider of the individual productivity Cloud application service (known as “Office 365”), to perform contractual obligations to the customer (e.g. managing emails or drafting documents) and/or comply with connected legal obligations.

      As indicated expressly in Annex 1 to the Conditions for Using Online Services, with reference to the service Office 365, Microsoft undertakes to store inactive data of the company processed by VENETA CUCINE as follows: “if the Company carries out provisioning of its tenant (…) in the European Union, Microsoft will store the following inactive data of the Company only within that geographical area: (1) the content of the Exchange Online mail box (body of the email message, calendar items and content of the email attachments), (2) content of the SharePoint Online website and the files stored on the website and (3) the files loaded onto OneDrive for Business.” These data are thus not transferred to the USA and the transfer is of a merely occasional kind.

      See Microsoft policy at https://docs.microsoft.com/it-it/microsoft-365/enterprise/o365-data-locations?view=o365-worldwide. Microsoft’s privacy policy can be consulted at the following address: https://privacy.microsoft.com/it-it/privacystatement.

      It is nevertheless possible that other inactive data, in particular data that are different from those indicated, will be transferred from the EU to the USA for the service under examination and that the frequency of the transfer is not occasional.

      In this eventuality, VENETA CUCINE applies appropriate guarantees consisting of signing – automatically when the service is activated – standard contractual clauses (CCS), by which the supplier undertakes to process the data for which he is responsible in compliance with privacy obligations that are substantially equivalent to those specified by the GDPR by which VENETA CUCINE abides. These standard contractual clauses were submitted beforehand by Microsoft to the Working Party in compliance with article 29 of the European Union and received the relative approval.

      In the light of the US regulations to which the European Court of Justice refers in the Schrmes ruling of 16.07.2020 (or art. 702 of FISA and Executive Order EO 12333), which allows the American public authority to access personal data transferred from the EU to the USA for national security reasons, which is applicable to any electronic transfer to the United States, regardless of the instrument used for this operation, it cannot be ruled out with complete certainty in abstract terms that there is a risk that in occasional situations the American public authority will access the data. Nevertheless, on the basis of common experience, in view of the limited scope of the VENETA CUCINE service to the customer, the type of personal data processed and the limited categories of data subjects to which the data refer, the concrete possibility that there is public interest in gaining such sporadic access to the data (of which Microsoft by law might not inform the data controller), appears to be objectively limited.

      As the standard contractual clauses, without prejudice to the aforesaid exceptional and improbable eventuality of access being gained by the American public authority, reasonably guarantee protection of the rights of the data subjects that is substantially identical to that provided by the GDPR, VENETA CUCINE does not at present deem it necessary to agree any additional measures with the supplier Microsoft (an eventuality that is envisaged by the cited ruling of the European Court of Justice). VENETA CUCINE will inform the customer of any supplementary measures.

      Similar considerations apply to the supplier of the video conference service used by the data controller: Cisco Systems, Inc., located at 170 West Tasman Dr. San Jose, CA 95134 USA.

    • Interaction with social network

      From the pages of the website, direct interactions with the social networks are possible. If an interaction service with the social networks has been installed, even if users do not use services offered by the website the website may gather data on activities on the pages on which it is installed and other information on the user.

      Our company can share certain data (first name, surname, email) with third-party suppliers of social media platforms (e.g. FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, INSTAGRAM, etc.) that use them to identify other people who are similar to the user who could be interested in VENETA CUCINE services and/or products, so as to advertise them via the platforms of social media. The operations of gathering and communicating these data to the aforesaid social media platforms are conducted together by the co-data controllers VENETA CUCINE and the suppliers of the aforesaid platforms.

      If an interaction of the website users with the Facebook page (the “Page”) of the administrator of the Page (VENETA CUCINE) and the contents associated with the Page activates the creation of an event for Insights of the Page that comprises personal data for the processing of which the administrator of the Page (and/or other third parties for whom the user creates or administers the Page) causes the means and the purposes of the processing together with Facebook Ireland Limited, the administrator of the Page in his own right (and as an agent of third parties, on behalf of such third parties), the Annex on the data controller for Insights of the Page ("Annex for Insights of the Page") applies, which contains a co-data controller agreement between Facebook and VENETA CUCINE.

      In particular, for processing personal data for Page Insights ("Insight Data") the co-data controller status covers the creation of such events and their inclusion in the Page Insights supplied to the Page administrators.

      The co-data controller agreement between VENETA CUCINE and FACEBOOK Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook Ireland") can be seen on the following link.

      For other processing of personal data in relation to a Page and/or to the content associated therewith for which there is no joint determination of the purposes and means and no resulting co-data controllorship, Facebook Ireland and, according to circumstances, the Page administrator, remain separate and independent data controllers.

      In interactions of the website users with the pages of social media platforms other than Facebook, the data are basically shared between VENETA CUCINE and the third-party supplier of the social platform in the same way as with Facebook.

      The interactions and the connected information on the data subject acquired from this website are subject to the user’s privacy settings for each social network.

    • Duration of the processing

      In the case of processing for main purposes, the personal data are processed for the entire duration of the precontractual and/or contractual dealings with the data subject, in particular:

      a) in the precontractual phase, for the time necessary to manage the requests of the data subject that have reached the company (e.g. requests for documentation, brochures, information, etc.) and to track the successful outcome of the company’s replies; and subsequently until you announce your opposition to the processing for the above purposes;

      b) in relation to the contract signed with the data subject, for the entire duration of the contractual dealings with the data subject; and

      c) after the termination of the contract with the data subject for the time required to meet the legal obligations connected with the terminated contract (in particular demonstrating compliance with fiscal and civil law obligations to the supervisory authority) and until the deadline passes for civil actions for damages due to the data subject pursuant to art. 2946 of the Italian Civil Code for: 10 years from termination of the contract).

      The personal data are processed for IT security purposes (e.g. log records), are kept for the time necessary to perform the relative security checks and to evaluate the results (1 year from the moment of collection).

      In the event of a dispute with the data subject and/or with third parties before or outside a court of law, the data will be processed for all the time strictly necessary and sufficient to fully protect the data controller’s rights.

      Data processing for secondary purposes (marketing and profiling) as described above, shall continue:
      a) if you are not already one of our customers until you revoke the consent that you had previously given for the above purpose; or
      b) if you are already one of our customers until you communicate your opposition to the processing for the aforesaid purposes.

      The period of storage of data collected by cookies is illustrated in the section "Cookie Policy" below.

    • Cookie Policy

      The Privacy Guarantor, in the ordinance of 8 May 2014, implemented, with effect in Italy from 2 June 2015, European Directive 2009/136/EC, which imposes on the administrators of the web pages to publish a notice on the cookies policy of the website that visitors are browsing.

      This policy can be updated at any moment because of amendments to current regulations or because of any change to the configuration and type of cookies used, so we suggest viewing this cookie policy periodically in order to keep abreast of any updates.

      The website could contain connections to other websites that have their own privacy notices that may be different from the privacy position of this website, which is not therefore answerable for these websites.

      What cookies are and how they are used

      Cookies are short strings of information (text files) relating to the activities of the user on the website that are stored during initial browsing of the website, in the user’s instrument (computer, smartphone or tablet) and are then retransmitted to the websites during a subsequent visit by the same user to enable our website to automatically recognize the user (or other users using the same instrument) after the first visit and thus improve the user’s browsing experience.

      The operation of the cookies depends totally on the browser that the user uses and can be enabled or not by the user.

      In order to always ensure the best possible browsing experience, our website offers the best performance with the cookies enabled. By default, almost all web browsers are set to accept cookies automatically.

      Cookies can be:

      • first party” when they are managed directly by the website manager;
      • third party” when the cookies are set and managed by managers outside the website visited by the user.
        Third party cookies fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the manager and the manager of the first party website acts merely as an intermediary in relation to their installation.

      What cookies we use and for what purpose

      The website uses or can use, also in combination with one another, the following categories of cookie:

      • Permanent or "persistent" cookies: hese cookies remain stored in the device even after the website is left or after the browser has been shut down: in particular, they remain until their set expiry date or until they are eliminated manually by the user. Persistent cookies in fact perform many functions in the interest of the browsers (like for example storing the password), but in some cases they can also be used for promotional purposes.
      • Session (or temporary) cookies: they last as long as the visit and are eliminated when the browser shuts down, which terminates the access "session" to the website. They normally enable the user to access customized services and to fully exploit the website functions, so that other IT techniques can be dispensed with that might jeopardize the confidentiality of the browsing history of users.
      • Technical functional cookies, for example for transmitting session identifiers that are necessary to enable the website to be explored securely and efficiently. Owing to these cookies, other IT techniques can be dispensed with that might jeopardize the confidentiality of the browsing history of users.

        For the use of technical cookies, the law requires only the release of the notice to the data subject, as occurs with this notice, so no specific banners are required on the website.

        For all non-technical cookies, on the other hand, installation requires the user’s prior consent: by publishing a synthetic banner that can be viewed when first “landing” on the website that enables the user to express in a clear and specific manner his choices about the categories of cookie to be authorized (so-called preference centre cookies). In order to enable an informed choice to be made, this analytic cookie notice is made available via a link.

      • Analytic cookies: these cookies can be both temporary and permanent and enable statistical information to be gathered and analyzed in an aggregate and/or non-aggregate manner on accesses (e.g. geographic zone of origin of the user, access instrument used, age, etc) and in general on the behaviour of the users on the website and thus the experience and contents supplied to be improved.

        These analytic cookies can be classed as technical cookies only if they are made and used directly by the first party website (thus without the intervention of third parties). For example, the website uses log files (i.e. records the chronology of the operations as they are run) and register files (which include IP addresses, browser type, operating system used by the user device, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date, time, entry and exit page and number of clicks, but also the pages visited on the website, the websites of third parties from which the user has come). This is all used to analyze the patterns of behaviour of users and administer and optimize the website. The information gathered in this manner is not personal because the data are gathered and analyzed anonymously.

        On the other hand, if analytical cookies are made and/or used by third parties (i.e. parties other than the data controller of the first party website) they cannot be classified as technical cookies and are treated differently by the law.

      • “Profiling” (or advertising) cookies (which are also permanent) are used to obtain aggregate and non-aggregate information to evaluate the use of the website and the activities of the visitor (choice of display of specific pages, of specific products and/or services, etc.), used by the data controller to devise focused commercial advertising of products and/or services, i.e. based on previous activities of the user (instead of the general advertisements aimed indiscriminately at everyone).

      List of cookies actually present on the website

      he introduction above does not automatically imply that all the categories of cookie indicated above are currently used on this website. The list of cookies actually used by VENETA CUCINE is set out below.

      The website also uses Google Analytics cookies (cookies of Google Inc., which is a third-party American company). We point out that the Google Analytics functions do not collect any strictly personal data but only data in aggregate statistical form, data on the age, gender, and interest preferences of our visitors (in order to evaluate better the use of our website and the activities of the visitors and better focus the services provided). Such cookies are stored on servers that may be located in the United States 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 part processes information on his own account.

      The "Analytics" function is configured as the default setting by VENETA CUCINE so as to meaningfully mask portions of the IP address of the user/visitor and thus the datum relating to the IP address collected is already anonymized at source and the analytical cookie does not thus permit the identity of the user/visitor to be traced even indirectly, and in particular by further processing. For this reason, VENETA CUCINE, which is the manager of the website, is not obliged to comply with certain legal regulations governing cookies (e.g. notification of the privacy guarantor regarding processing of the cookies). The user can always disable the cookies of Google analytics by using an additional component provided by Google at the following link.

      If in the future VENETA CUCINE were to decide at any moment to so modify the configuration of the "Analytics" function as to permit the collection of the datum on the user consisting of the last three numbers that make up the user’s IP address, the Privacy Guarantor will have to be informed beforehand of this choice by the data controller of the data processed by the portal or website, in order to protect the user.

      You should also know that Google itself assures that the user’s IP address is not associated with any other data possessed by Google in order to obtain a more detailed user profile.

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

      Our website uses remarketing lists and advertisements of the display network, i.e. online advertisements based on categories of general interests expressed by categories of users by web browsing.

      In addition to the features described above, our website uses the special advertising functions of Google Analytics that enable supplementary functions to be activated that are not available via the standard implementations of Google Analytics and the relative cookies.

      Such advertising functions also enable data on traffic to be collected (by the Google advertising cookies and the anonymous identifiers) as well as the data that are already collected by us by a standard implementation of Google Analytics. Google Analytics has the following advertising functions:

      • remarketing with Google Analytics
      • reports on the impressions of the Google’s Display Network (if used by AdWords)
      • supplementing with DoubleClick platform
      • reports on demographic data and Google Analytics interests

      For more information on online behavioural advertising and suggestions on possible steps to take, in particular to deactivate the display of advertisements based on online interests, go to: www.youronlinechoiches.eu/it.

      • Social cookies: these cookies are third party cookies, i.e. they are supplied directly by the domains of the most common social media networks that are connected to our website by a link to official pages, buttons for sharing content and links. Using these buttons and functions involves information exchanges (e.g. texts, photographs, videos, etc.) with these websites.

      Managing this information and the methods for eliminating these social cookies is thus regulated by the social media websites: the user should consult the respective privacy notices of each website by clicking on the following links:

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

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

      How cookies work and how to disable them

      Accepting or rejecting cookies is one of your rights

      Browsers are generally set to accept the use of cookies coming both from our website and from the websites of third parties. In order to enable the website to operate correctly, and fully exploit its functions and uses, it is advisable to accept the use of cookies.

      The user can alter default configuration at any time.

      This is the link for configuring the most popular browsers that describe the methods for managing cookies:

      In order to modify the cookie settings in browsers other than those listed, see the help documentation supplied by the manufacturer of the specific browser.

      The user can also selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by downloading and installing on his own browser the additional opt-out component that is supplied by Google for its browser, by clicking on this link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

      Remember that you have to set the cookie preferences for each device and each browser used when browsing on the internet.
