INDUSTRIE POLIECO – M.P.B. S.p.A. (hereinafter referred to as the owner) with registered office in Cazzago San Martino (Bs), via E. Mattei, no. 49, as Data Controller, pursuant to Art. 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, informs you about how cookies are used.

What are cookies and what are they used for

A cookie is a text file sent by a website to its user’s terminal, where it is stored and re-transmitted to that website during subsequent visits.

Cookies are distinguished:

1) on the basis of the entity that installs them on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (so-called «first-party cookies») or a different site that installs cookies through the first site (so-called «third-party cookies»);

2) based on the purpose of each cookie: some cookies allow the website which installed them to remember the preferences expressed by the user during browsing, for example, to make a purchase or perform authentication (so-called “technical cookies”), other cookies allow the website which installed them to monitor the user’s browsing in order to send advertisements or offer services in line with the preferences expressed by the user during web browsing (so-called “profiling cookies”).

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used to “transmit a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the supplier of a company service, of information explicitly required by the subscriber or the user to provide that service”. Cookies of this type are necessary for the proper functioning of certain areas of the site. Cookies in this category include both persistent and session cookies. In the absence of such cookies, the site or certain portions of it may not function properly. Therefore, they are always used, regardless of the user’s preferences.

Cookies in this category are always sent from our domain. Technical cookies can be divided as follows:

  • browsing or session cookies, which guarantee normal browsing and fruition of the website (allowing the user to make a purchase or perform authentication to access restricted areas, for example);
  • analytics cookies (e.g. Google Analytics), equivalent to technical cookies where used directly by the website provider to gather information on the number of users and how these users visit the website, in aggregated form;
  • functionality cookies allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (e.g.: language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

We wish to highlight that the Google Analytics tool used on this website gathers the IP address of visitors to provide an indication of their geographical location. This method is known as IP geolocation. Google Analytics does not share information related to the actual IP addresses of visitors. By using a method known as IP masking, Google Analytics shares information so that only a part of the IP is used for geolocation, not the whole address.

A browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics may be downloaded from this website  The add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) indicating that information on the visit to the website must not be sent to Google Analytics. Technical cookies do not require the authorisation of the data subject.

Third-party function integration cookies

Cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functions into the Site (e.g. integration with social networks or advertising services). Cookies in this category may be sent from the domains of partner sites (or sites that otherwise offer functionality on the site) and may use information about your visit to show you advertisements that may be of interest to you. Browsers are automatically set to accept cookies.

Information pursuant to Art. 13 of Reg. 2016/679/EU

The Data Controller specifies the following with respect to the information gathered by the cookies directly installed by the website:

  • the data is only gathered for the purposes and duration indicated in the following table and is processed by electronic means;
  • with regard to “technical” cookies, we once again state that using those cookies does not require prior authorisation since these cookies are required to browse the Website and for its correct operation. If the technical cookies are removed through browser settings, browsing may be partly or completely impossible;
  • Profiling cookies are used to allow the Data Controller to know the User’s preferences and for these cookies, the Data Subject’s consent is required.
  • the data gathered by first-party cookies may be shared with the subjects operating on behalf of the Data Controller for purposes related to those described above. With regard to that data, the user may exercise the right referred to in Reg. 2016/679/EU, as indicated in the personal data processing Policy which can be accessed through the “Privacy” link on the Website footer.
