Type of data processed

Browsing data

The IT systems and software procedures for operation of this website acquire, during normal operation, some personal data the transmission of which is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified parties concerned, but that by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow identifying users.

This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users that connect to the website, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) ​​addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters regarding the operating system and the user's IT environment.

The browsing data will be collected only in the legitimate interest of allowing the user to use the contents published on the Controller's websites and their correct administration and management. This data is only used to obtain anonymous statistical information regarding use of the website and to verify its correct operation and is deleted immediately after processing. The data in question may be used to ascertain liability in the event of eventual computer crimes against our website.

Cookies

The software applications used may contain the cookie technology. Cookies mainly have the function of facilitating user navigation. Cookies may provide information on browsing within the website and allow the operation of certain services that require identification of the user's browsing through different pages of the website. The cookies in the software applications used are anonymous and may not be traced back to the user's personal data. For any access to the portal regardless of the presence of a cookie, the type of browser (ex. Internet Explorer, Netscape), the operating system (ex. Macintosh, Windows), the host and the URL of origin of the visitor are recorded, in addition to data on the requested page. However, the user has the opportunity to set the browser so as to be informed when receiving a cookie and decide in this way to delete it.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of sending communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service (see article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the controller or operator of the website.

More precisely, the website uses the following technical cookies:

cb-enabled Technical Cookie It is installed on the user's computer when the "Accept" button in the Cookie Bar is clicked. It is automatically deleted after 1 year

Third-party analytical cookies

Anonymized Monitoring Cookies (Google Analytics)

Our pages use third-party performance cookies, in this case Google Analytics, to allow us to examine the conduct of visitors while using the website and to improve its usability and user experience.

The Guarantor has clarified in the FAQ (Paragraph 2 - Use of analytical cookies of third parties) that the Google Analytics cookie, if anonymized, can be considered a technical cookie and therefore not subject to preventive blocking.

In fact, on the website of the Privacy Guarantor it is specified that

"... In many cases, however, websites use, for mere statistical purposes, analytical cookies realized and made available by third parties. In these cases, it is believed that the aforementioned websites are not subject to the obligations and fulfilments required by law (notification to the Guarantor in particular) if appropriate tools are adopted to reduce the identifying power of the analytical cookies they use (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP address)...."

Provisions adopted by AFATAC Srl to anonymize the monitoring of Google Analytics

In order to anonymously monitor Google Analytics in the integration code, the following instruction has been inserted
ga('set', 'anonymizeIp', true); 
through which the last part of the IP address of the visitor is obscured.

This feature was designed by Google Analytics to help website owners comply with privacy regulations or, in some countries, the recommendations of local data protection authorities, which may prevent the storage of information about complete IP addresses. IP masking or anonymization occurs as soon as data is received from the Analytics collection network, before any storage or processing takes place. Only in exceptional cases, the IP address will be sent to Google servers and abbreviated within the United States.

For further information, refer to the Google page..

Google Analytics, by browsing the website www.afatac.com, can install the following cookies:

COOKIE NAME OWNERSHIP TYPE DURATION
_ga Google Analytics ANONYMIZED (technical). Used to distinguish users 2 year
_gat Google Analytics ANONYMIZED (technical). Used to distinguish users 1 minute
_gid Google Analytics ANONYMIZED (technical). Used to limit the speed of request 24 hours
ID Canale Google Analytics Ecdsa_sign certificate used to determine new sessions and visits unlimited


How to disable cookies from Google Analytics

Users can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on their browser.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

Processing methods
