This "Cookie Policy" (our policy regarding the use of cookies) refers to this website (hereinafter the "website"), including pages on third-party platforms (e.g., Facebook or YouTube), and to applications accessed or used through such website or third-party platforms that are operated by or on behalf of the company Faraone spa (hereinafter the "Undersigned").

By using the website, you agree to the use of cookies in accordance with this Cookie Policy. If you do not consent to our use of cookies, you must set your browser appropriately (see below) or do not use the website. If you decide to disable the cookies we employ, your experience while browsing the website may be affected. The table below summarizes the different types of cookies that may be used on the website, along with their respective function and duration (i.e. how long each cookie will remain stored on your device).

What are cookies?

Cookies are computer files or pieces of data that may be saved on your computer (or other Internet-enabled device, such as smartphones or tablets) when you visit a website. Usually, a cookie contains the name of the website from which it originates, the cookie "lifespan" (how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

The Italian Data Protection Authority Order no. 229 of May 8, 2014 (published in the Italian Official Journal no. 126 of June 3, 2014) and the Guidelines on the use of cookies and other tracking tools of June 10, 2021 (Published in the Italian Official Journal no. 163 of July 9, 2021) split cookies into two large categories:

Technical cookies. These cookies are used for navigation or to provide a service requested by the user or for the technical functioning of the website. They are not used for any other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Failure to use such cookies may prevent some operations or make them more complex and/or less secure, such as home banking (viewing account statements, bank transfers, bill payments, etc.) for which cookies, which allow the user to be identified and kept identified within the session, are necessary. Users' prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies.

Profiling or non-technical cookies. Profiling cookies are used to create profiles about you and to send advertisements that match the preferences expressed by you during web browsing. Because these devices can be really invasive within users' private life, European and Italian regulations require that the user must be adequately informed about their use and express valid consent.

Additionally, in that order the Data Protection Authority distinguished two categories depending on the entity acting as the controller of the personal data collected by the cookie, "first-party cookies" and "third-party cookies".

First-party cookies. These are the cookies managed by the website owner. For these cookies, the information duty lies with the website owner. They must also specify how cookies may be blocked.

Third-party cookies. These are the cookies managed by a third-party other than the website owner. For these cookies, the obligation to inform and to specify how cookies may be blocked lies with the third party, while the website owner must provide on the website the link to the third party's website where these items are available.

For both types of cookies (first-party or third-party), the consent required in case of profiling cookies is collected through a special banner on the website's home page.

What do we use cookies for?

We use cookies to make the use of our website easier and to better tailor it to your interests and needs. Cookies may also be used to help us speed up your future experiences and activities on our website. We also use cookies to compile anonymous aggregate statistics that allow us to understand how people use our website and to help us improve the structure and content of the website. We are not able to identify you personally through this information.

What types of cookies do we use?

This website uses technical cookies to technically operate the website, and more specifically:

Navigation cookies: these are used for technical operation and ensure the normal navigation and use of the website, or allow to manage information in aggregate form through analytics cookies (Please note that analytics cookies are considered as technical cookies if used directly by the website manager to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they browse the website).

Function cookies: these allow your browsing based on a series of selected criteria (for example, the language) to provide a better service.

"Session" and "persistent" cookies: after download, session cookies are then deleted when the Browser is closed, while persistent cookies are stored until they expire or are deleted. The session cookies used are intended to speed up the analysis of Internet traffic and make it easier for users to access the services offered by the website. They are mainly used for authentication, authorization and navigation within the services that are accessed through registration. Most websites are set to accept cookies. The use of session cookies is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers, which are necessary to ensure secure and efficient website browsing. These are temporarily valid technical data not collected to identify users but, due to how they work and in combination with other data held by third parties (e.g., the data subject's Internet service provider), could allow for identification. These two types of cookies (session and persistent) can in turn be:

  • "First-party" cookies, when they are operated directly by the owner and/or manager of the website.
  • "Third-party” cookies, when these are set and managed by third-party managers who are unrelated to the website visited by the user, such as Cookie Google Analytics, whose software used creates a cookie to generate usage statistics. The data generated by this cookie are stored at Google Inc. To know about how cookies work in Google Analytics, see the official documentation provided by Google at this address. In any case, the data contained in the analytics cookies above are related to technical operation.

As mentioned above, the provisions on cookies specify that the prior consent of users is not required for installing cookies, while the obligation to provide information to data subjects pursuant to Article 13 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) remains in place. Therefore, for more information about the Processing of your Personal Data you can check our website Privacy Policy.

Do we use third-party cookies?

We strive to identify these cookies before they are used so that you can decide whether you want to accept them. More information regarding these cookies may be available on the website of the third party concerned.
