With this document, pursuant to articles. 13 and 122 of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 ("Privacy Code"), and pursuant to the provisions of the General measure of the Authority of Privacy of 8 May 2014, Bozzi SpA, owner of the site www.bozzispa.com, provides users of the website some information about the cookies used or which permits installation of.
What cookies are
A "cookie" is a small text file created on the user's computer at the time when it accesses to a particular site, with the purpose of storing and transporting information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer that is running the website visited) to user's browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the computer as well; they are then sent back to the website at the time of subsequent visits.
During the navigation of a site, users can get on to their terminals also cookie from other sites or Web servers (so-called cookie "third party"); this is because the website visited can be present elements as, for example, pictures, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which users find the requested page. In other words, these are cookies that are set by a website other than the one users are currently visiting.
Cookies are used to perform authentication information, monitoring of sessions and storing specific information about users accessing the server and normally are present in the browser of each user in very large number. They may remain on the user's terminal for long or short periods. The session cookie usually disappears at the end of the browsing session, that is closing the browser.
Cookies, however, can also be used to track the user's navigation on the network and create profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies advertising messages in line with the preferences already expressed by the user in navigating online can be transmitted to the user's terminal.
Types of cookies
Cookies are divided into two main categories: “Technical cookies" and "Profiling cookies".:
1. Technical Cookies
Technical Cookies are ones used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary by the provider of the service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service” (Art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 (the so-called Privacy Code). Technical Cookies are not used for other purposes and are usually installed by the owner or operator of the site or by third parties (infra sub § 5). Technical Cookies are split into:
- navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authentication to gain access to restricted areas);
- analytic cookies, similar to Technical Cookies, used exclusively to collect information, in aggregate form, about the number of users and how they visit the site. These cookies allow us to know how visitors use the site, in order to be able to evaluate and improve operations. For example, they let you know which pages are most visited. They take into account, among other things, the number of visitors and time spent on the site by users. In this way we collect information on the quality of the navigation offered. All information collected by these cookies is anonymous and not linked to personal information;
- functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service offered.
2. Profiling cookies
Profiling Cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown while surfing the net. Given the considerable invasiveness that such devices may have within the privacy of users, European and Italian regulations require the user to be properly informed on the use of the same and express their valid consent. This in compliance with Article 122 of the Italian Civil Code where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored, are only allowed on condition that the contractor or the user has given consent after It was informed by the simplified procedures referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3" (Art. 122, paragraph 1, of Italian Civil Code).
3. Analytic cookies
Although not directly classified in the measure as a separate category, these cookies are relevant, as mentioned on several occasions. They are used to statistically analyze accesses / site visits (cookies called "analytic") but not always pursue exclusively statistical purposes or collect information in the aggregate, and are often provided by third parties that collect IP addresses of users and can access it disaggregated (in these cases it is possible to limit treatment using techniques of anonymization). Usually they are not exempted from the consensus, however, when they are used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate, the number of users and how they visit the site, cookies are treated as technical ones.
Cookies used in this site
Specifically, the cookies used by this site, only technical, are those listed below:
_gat (cookie del servizio Google Analytics)
|Used to throttle request rate||10 minutes|
|_ga (cookie of Google Analytics service)||Used to distinguish users||2 years|
|joomsef_lang||Used to maintain application state through the various pages and handle some technical features (for example, maintaining the selected language)||3 years|
|52f9afb65cbfa06df9636468a9254fc7||Used to view the website properly||End session|
|8de479db2f278a485a4b034e7ee9c337||Used to view the website properly||End session|
|cookieaccept||Used for convenience of users, recognizing them and preventing the short disclosure about cookies contained in the banner reappear in the case of site visits made within the deadline. It is activated by clicking on the banner acceptance.||1 year|
Lastly, the owner of the site worked with Google Analytics to anonymise the IP address of the user.
For this site, in fact, anonymizing IP address of users / visitors has been requested to Google Analytics, so Google Analytics anonymizes the address as soon as this is technically possible in the passage upstream of the network where data are collected. The function of anonymizing IP in Google Analytics sets the last octet of the IP addresses IPv4 and the last 80 bits of the IPv6 addresses of the user to zero, in memory immediately after sending the address to the collection network of Google Analytics. In this case the full IP address is never written on disk.
More information about the anonymisation service adopted, which also affects the pixel tag of Google, can be found here.
Finally the users are informed it is their right to consult the list of cookies used by Google Analytics.
The owner of the site also informs that he has accepted the amendment on data processing (Google Analytics Data Processing Amendment v20130906) made available by Google Analytics in accordance with Directive 95/46 / EC.
Specifically in accordance with that amendment, designed for customers resident in the EU, Google will use the data as requested by the customer-owner through the setting of the services. As well as to provide technical support and to maintain the service, Google guarantees that it will treat the personal data of which the customer has ownership only within the limits of the instructions given and will not share it with other additional services, unless the customer will active them.
For all above, the owner of the site informs the users that the advertising options and data sharing with Google have not been enabled for this site and that Google Analytics is not linked to any additional service: the treatment, therefore, is made merely for statistical purposes.
The Guarantor of privacy, with the clarifications made on June 5, 2015, ruled that the sites which adopt suitable means to reduce the power of identification by analytic cookies (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP address) are not subject to obligations and formalities required by law (notification to the Guarantor in the first place) if the use of these cookies is subject to contractual links between sites and third parties, where there is expressly recall the commitment of the third party to use them exclusively for the supply service, to keep them separate and not to "enrich" or not "cross them" with other information they have.
Except for technical cookies, strictly necessary for the normal web surfing, providing data is left to the will of the person who decides to browse the site after having read the brief contained in the appropriate banner.
The interested party may then avoid the installation of cookies while keeping the banner (refraining from so closing it by clicking the "ok"), as well as through the special features available on own browser.
How to change the settings on cookies

The user can block all types of cookies, or agree to receive only some and disable the others.
