Cookie policy adopted by site

Pursuant to the privacy laws (Privacy Code Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 and EU Reg. no. 679/2016, hereinafter, “GDPR”) as well as the provisions set out in Ruling no. 229 issued by the Personal Data Protection Guarantor on 8 May 2014, in this page the Data Controller supplies information to the users of website concerning the cookies used and/or proposed for the purpose of storing personal information.

The Controller of your personal data is M.I.T.I. Manifattura Italiana Tessuti Indemagliabili S.p.a., with registered office in Via Papa Giovanni XXIII no. 320 – 24059 Urgnano (BG), VAT no. 03536250164, registered in the Trade Register of Bergamo, tel. 0354192011, email (hereinafter, “MITI” or the Controller).

This policy on the use of cookies (hereinafter, also “Cookie Policy”) sets out the requirements provided for by the law, describes the characteristics and the functions of the cookies installed by site, includes a link to the policies and consent forms of third parties with whom the Controller has entered into an agreement that enables them to install cookies via this website, and explains how users can express their opinions on the use of cookies by adjusting the settings of the browsers used.

What are cookies?

Cookie are small text files that the site you are visiting sends to the device you are using to navigate the site. These files are stored inside your device to be transmitted back to the sites of origin at a later stage, for instance in the course of a subsequent visit. Cookies may be stored inside a user device directly by the website that the user is visiting (first-party site) or by a different website (third-party site), since any website will contain elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages from other domains, etc.) that may reside in and/or open links residing in servers other than those hosting the first-party site. Having the cookies stored in the memory of your device enables you to personalise the use of a website by saving a number of preferences: for example, it is possible to have a cookie installed that will recognise a user registered with a site without the user having to proceed with a new authentication process when he/she visits the site again.

Taxonomy proposed by the Guarantor

In ruling no. 229 of 8 May 2014, the Personal Data Protection Guarantor identifies two types of cookies based on the purposes they are used for:

  1. Technical cookies;
  2. Profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

These cookies are used to enable you to navigate a site and/or provide a service. They are not used for additional purposes and are normally installed directly by the Controller. Without these cookies, some operations could not be performed, or would be more complex and/or less secure: this applies, for example, to home-banking (viewing your bank statements, making a bank transfer, paying bills, etc.), in this connection, the technical cookies that identify a user for the duration of his/her visit to the site are indispensable.

Profiling cookies

These cookies are used to trace a user’s navigation in the web and create a profile detailing a user’s preferences, habits, choices and the like. Thanks to these cookies, it becomes possible to send to the user device advertising messages in keeping with the preferences revealed by the users themselves while navigating the pages of the site.

User consent to the installation of the cookies in their devices

The expression of your consent to having cookies installed in your device depends on the purposes of the cookies, i.e., whether they are technical cookies or profiling cookies. No consent is required for the installation of technical cookies. Third-party cookies, instead, require, among other things, that the user be fully informed about the privacy policy adopted by the website (art. 13 of EU Regulation 679/2016). Profiling cookies cannot be installed in a user device unless the users have been extensively informed and have expressed their free, deliberate, specific and unequivocal consent to their use.

Acquisition of your consent to the installation of cookies

To keep track of the consent acquired, the Controller uses a specific technical cookie, which is not particularly invasive and does not require any further permission. Thanks to this “documentation” the message on the cookie policy of the site need not be shown again during subsequent visits to the same site, without prejudice to the user’s right to deny and/or change his/her opinions at any time, with ease, for instance by accessing the extended version of the privacy policy, which must accessible from each page of the site.

The provision of personal data

With the sole exception of the technical cookies strictly necessary to normal navigation purposes, whether or not to provide one’s personal data is up to the person concerned (the “data subject”), who may decide to continue navigating a site after reading the privacy notice contained in the ad hoc banner, or express his/her preferences through the functions available in the browser used. As an alternative, the user can stop navigating the site.

Cookies used by website

Our website uses technical cookies to improve your navigation experience in connection with functions that do not require the acquisition of your consent.

We also use the following third-party cookies, which can be disabled according to the modalities described in the links provided below for each type of cookie:

Purpose of the cookie

These cookies, including cache cookies, are installed by Google Analytics and are used to collect information on the way visitors use the site, including: number of visitors, sites of origin, pages visited in our website.

Similarly, Facebook, Linkedin, YouTube and Google Maps may use cookies to share contents on the social network or to work out statistics on number of visits and other issues. [M.I.T.I. uses these cookies for profiling purposes].

MITI also uses Facebook Pixel and [Linkedin Pixel] cookies to monitor the conversions taking place in our webiste as a consequence of the ads published on Facebook e Linkedin. For example, if you want to monitor the response to an advertising campaign publicised on Facebook, the cookie informs Facebook of every user who adheres to a particular advertising campaign on the MITI website. Moreover, third parties could use this information, also by combining it with other information already in their possession, for other non technical purposes (functional or session data), with the prior consent of the user.
