According to the Italian law, Your express consent is not always needed for the use of cookies. In particular, Your express consent is not required for the so-called “technical cookies”, in other words cookies used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or cookies that are strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by You. These are cookies strictly necessary for the function of the website or to provide the services You asked for.

As clarified by the Italian Data Protection Authority with the press release “Chiarimenti in merito all’attuazione della normativa in materia di cookie” dated June 5th 2015, websites that use, for statistic purposes only, analytics cookies designed and provided by third parties do not have to fulfill the requirements provided by the applicable law (first of all, the notification to the Italian Data Protection Authority) when mechanisms that limit the cookies’ identifying power are adopted (such as the anonymization of the IP addresses) and subject to the existence of agreements with the said third parties in which the latter commits to use the said cookies only for providing the service, to store them separately and not to enrich them or not to cross-check them with other information.
The company Aquafil S.p.A., with registered office in Arco (Trento) ITALY, via Linfano, 9, P.IVA 00123150229, as Data Controller of this website, has opted for the anonymization function of the IP addresses provided by Google (described at the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=it) and has accepted the amendment on the data processing (Google Analytics Data Processing Amendment v20130906: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=it) provided by Google Analytics in accordance with the Directive 95/46/CE: by accepting the said amendment, Google commits to process data only in accordance with the requests of the client (i.e., of the Data Controller of our website) and not to share them with other additional services if not requested by the client itself by means of the settings of the services. We inform You that the Data Controller of this website did not link Google Analytics to an another additional service, nor any advertising option or sharing data with Google option has been set up.
Although today, pursuant to the clarifications of the Italian Data Protection Authority dated June 5th 2015, Your previous consent is not required for the setting of third party analytics cookies when the above said precautions are adopted, we believe that asking Your previous consent is appropriate by clicking on the proper box in the banner or by continuing the visit of the website.
