Tel. +39 06.44290011C.F. 14601731004 intends to inform you of the following.
Consorzio Pegaso Limo specifies that it is not required to request the user’s consent for technical cookies (the only ones used on the website www.pegasolimo.it), as these are strictly necessary for the provision of the service.
What are cookies? What are they for? Are they a potential risk to our privacy? How can we protect our personal data when we browse the web?
These are some of the questions answered by the new video tutorial created by the Guarantor for Privacy.
What are the cookies?
Cookies are information placed on your browser when you visit a website or use a social network with your PC, smartphone or tablet.
Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server from which it comes, a numerical identifier, etc..
Cookies may remain in the system for the duration of a session (that is, until you close the browser used to browse the web) or for long periods and may contain a unique identification code.
What are cookies for?
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users who access a web page.
These cookies, so-called technical, are often useful, because they can make faster and faster navigation and use of the web, because for example they intervene to facilitate certain procedures when you shop online, when authenticating to restricted areas or when a website automatically recognizes the language you usually use.
A particular type of cookie, called analytics, are then used by website operators to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site, and then develop general statistics on the service and its use.
Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and habits of web browsing or consumption, also for the purpose of sending advertising targeted and personalized services. Let’s talk about profiling cookies in this case.
For example: Have you ever visited a service site, used your webmail or accessed your page on a social network and found advertising banners related to your latest web searches or to the latest purchase made on the Internet?
This is because those web spaces are designed to recognize your PC or another terminal you use to connect to the web (smartphones, tablets), and eventually direct you promotional messages “profiles” based on your searches and your use of the Internet.
It may also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as advertising banners, images, videos, etc.. We speak, in these cases, of the so-called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes.
So the cookies you download on your PC, smartphone and tablet can also be read by other subjects, other than those who manage the web pages you visit.
Given the particular invasiveness that profiling cookies (especially third-party cookies) may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provide that the user must be properly informed about the use of the same and express their valid consent to the insertion of cookies on his terminal.
1. that the site uses profiling cookies to send targeted advertising messages;
2. that the site also allows the sending of “third-party” cookies, in case of use of this type of cookies, ie cookies installed by a different site through the site you are visiting;
In any case, in addition to the safeguards provided, you also have other options to browse without cookies
Block third-party cookies
Third-party cookies are generally not essential for browsing, so you can reject them by default, through special functions of your browser.
Activate the Do Not Track option
The Do Not Track option is present in most of the latest generation browsers. Websites designed to comply with this option, when activated, should automatically stop collecting some of your browsing data. As said, however, not all websites are set to comply with this option (discretionary).
Activate “anonymous browsing” mode
By using this function you can browse without leaving a trace in the browser navigation data. The sites will not remember you, the pages you visit will not be stored in the history and new cookies will be deleted. The anonymous browsing function does not guarantee anonymity on the Internet, because it serves only to not keep the browsing data in the browser, while instead your browsing data will continue to remain available to website operators and connectivity providers.
Delete cookies directly
There are special functions to do this in all browsers. However, remember that every time you connect to the Internet, new cookies are downloaded, so the deletion operation should be performed periodically. If desired, some browsers offer automated systems for periodic deletion of cookies.
