Below is the Cookie Policy of Sacchetto s.r.l. associated with the domain The purpose is to provide data (from now on defined as Interested), any information relating to the data exchanged during the browsing experience of the pages and services. This Policy applies exclusively to the navigation of Sacchetto s.r.l. website. (from now on Website) accessible from the Internet address We will provide information on how the website uses cookies.

In compliance with the Provision of the Privacy Guarantor (from now on Guarantor) for the protection of personal data no. 229/2014 relating to the identification of the simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies and mandatory starting from June 2, 2015, Sacchetto s.r.l. provides the extensive information necessary to clarify to the user what cookies are, what they do, what they are for, what kind of cookies are present on the Website, but above all how to express your consent or denial to the storage of cookies on your own terminal. (Information updated on 05/30/2015)


What are cookies and what are they used for.

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the interested parties send to the user’s terminal, where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same websites during subsequent visits. In fact, the websites that use cookies generate an anonymous but coded identification card which they deliver to the interested party and which they read when they return. The card may contain information relating to user behavior and preferences from time to time.


Who releases the cookies?

The cookies saved by the website in which the interested party is browsing are “cookies of the website” (first-party cookies). While browsing a website, the interested party may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers (third-party cookies) on his terminal; this happens because on the visited website there may be elements such as – for example – images, maps, videos, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains (Google, YouTube, Facebook, etc.) that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is found but which are “invoked” by the page itself to provide further external services. In this sense we speak of “widgets”.


How long does a cookie last?

Cookies may have a duration limited to a single browsing session on the browser (session cookies), and in this case they are automatically deactivated (deleted) when the browser is closed by the user; or they may have a predetermined expiry date and, in this case, they will remain stored and active in the user’s hard disk until that expiration date (permanent cookies), continuing to be used and revalued during different browsing sessions on the browser.


Classification of cookies based on their function.

In general, cookies are used for various functions. The Guarantor has so far identified 2 macro-classifications: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

1 – Technical cookies . They are necessary to allow interested parties to browse the websites and take advantage of their functions such as maintaining the choice of language, the memory of the items selected during a purchase, home-banking operations (viewing the account statement, bank transfers, payment of bills, …), etc. . These are therefore also indispensable functions responsible for correct functioning. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner.

2 – Profiling cookies. They are used to track the actions performed by the interested parties who browse the websites both to simply obtain statistics of page attendance and also to build a behavior profile of the individual interested party in order to display advertisements that may be for him in a targeted manner. interesting, as they are consistent with his tastes and consumption habits. It therefore happens, for example, that after visiting an e-commerce network and searching for some particular products, these are re-proposed in the form of an advertising offer by browsing the same website at a later time. Website owners who use cookies for profiling purposes are obliged to notify the Guarantor.

In general, analytical cookies also belong to the second category, generated by automatic tools associated with the website and used by the website managers to obtain statistical information on the number of users who access them, on how the pages are visited and the services used, etc. In many cases the tools that generate analytical cookies reside on third-party servers (eg: Google Analytics). However, it happens that analytical cookies are considered as equal with technical cookies when (see the clarification document of the Guarantor):

  • – they are generated and used directly by the first party website for the sole purpose of improving its usability.
  • – are generated by third-party tools associated with the website, [A] however adopting specific techniques that reduce the identifying capacity of cookies (for example by hiding significant portions of the IP) and [B] verifying that the third party undertakes do not cross the information contained in the cookies with others already available.


Which cookies require the consent of the interested party and for which cookies it is mandatory to provide all information

Technical cookies do not require explicit consent from the interested party, while cookies generated by a first-party website and used for profiling purposes require this in a mandatory manner. Therefore, unlike technical cookies, profiling cookies cannot be saved on the interested party’s terminal before his consent. The consent to third-party cookies – of which a website is only through a technician – must instead be managed directly on the websites or services of third parties.

Both types of cookies used by a website need their description in the extended information. Since it is impossible to know all the cookies generated by the third parties used, it is sufficient to indicate them in the information in the aggregate form of the service, then referring to the links of the third parties that provide the necessary information on the cookies generated and on the authorization or denial of consent methods.

Some examples, to understand

  • – [Ex. 1] The cookies released by Google Analytics after IP hiding and after the website owners refuse to use the information collected for purposes other than statistics (which can be done) can be considered as technical cookies and therefore they do not require consent, but only indication in the extended information.
  • – [Ex 2] Other elements or third-party services included in the website pages that almost certainly generate cookies (e.g. the generic social network plugins of facebook, twitter, AddThis, shareaholic, AdSense advertising banners, YouTube videos, Google Maps, etc. .) are instead subject to the consent of the interested party but not so much on the first party website (which is only the technical intermediary) but rather on the websites of third parties. The owner of the first-party website that includes the elements is also required to include in the extended information the updated links to the information and consent forms of the third parties themselves.
  • – [Ex. 3] If the cookies released by a third-party element included in the first-party website are in some way used for user profiling purposes also by the first-party website operator (by virtue of an agreement), then explicit consent is required to release the cookies also on the first party website. If consent is not given by the interested party, the third-party elements that generate profiling cookies must be hidden / inhibited so that they do not generate cookies.
  • – [Ex. 4] Simple redirect links to other websites or third-party services do not generate cookies and therefore are not subject to the legislation.
