The provision of data, and therefore consent to its collection, is optional, the User may refuse consent and may always revoke it once provided.

However, refusing consent may result in the inability to provide certain services and the User’s browsing experience on the site may be impaired.

2. Types of data processed and processing methods

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website may acquire, in the course of their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow the Users to be identified.

This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by Users who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the date and time of the visit, 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 given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the User’s operating system and computer environment.

These data may be used to ascertain possible liability in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the site and therefore to verify the proper functioning of the site.

It should be noted that for security purposes (spam filters, firewalls, virus detection, etc.), automatically recorded data may also include personal data such as the IP address, which may be used in accordance with current legislation, in order to prevent the commission of computer crimes or other activities harmful to the site.

Such data are never used for customer identification or profiling.

2.2 Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are sent from the visited website to the User’s device (usually to the browser), where they are stored so that they can recognise that device on the next visit. On each subsequent visit the cookies are re-sent to the site from the User’s device. Cookies are mainly used to adapt the operation of the site to the User’s expectations, personalising the browsing experience and memorising any choices made previously.

Each cookie generally contains: the name of the server from which the cookie was sent, the expiry date, and a value, usually a unique number randomly generated by the User’s computer. The server of the website that transfers the cookie uses this number to recognise the User when he or she returns to a site or navigates from one page to another.

Cookies can be installed not only by the same operator of the site visited by the User (first-party cookies), but also by a different site that installs cookies through the first site (third-party cookies) and is able to recognise these. This happens because there may be elements on the site visited (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that are stored on servers other than that of the site visited.

In general, cookies are classified into different types according to:

  • DurationSession cookies (temporary) automatically deleted when the browser is closed and are used to identify the User and prevent him or her from having to log in each time a page is visited. Permanent cookies active until their expiry date or deletion by the User.
  • SourceFirst-party cookies sent to the User’s browser directly from the site being visited. Third-party cookies sent to the User’s browser from other sites and not from the site being visited.
  • Purposes

Technical cookies contribute to the proper functioning of the site, for example, they enable the User to navigate between pages or access protected areas, store User language preferences and so on. If they are blocked, the site cannot function properly or navigation will be less functional. Technical cookies also include the statistical/analytic a) first-party cookie or b) third-party cookie with IP masking, without data cross-referencing, which is used to collect information and generate website usage statistics to understand how visitors interact.

Non-technical cookies. Third-party statistical/analytic cookies without IP masking, with data cross-referencing, and profiling/advertising/tracking or conversion cookies for selecting advertising based on what is relevant to a User (personalised ads). These are all profiling cookies aimed at creating profiles relating to the User and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same during web browsing.

With this specific information on cookies CAST – COOPERATIVA ANONIMA SERVIZI TIPOGRAFICI Società Cooperativa, has implemented the obligations provided for by the Provision of the Guarantor Authority for the Protection of Personal Data Identification of simplified procedures for information and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies – 8 May 2014(Published in the Official Gazette no. 126 of 3 June 2014), as well as subsequent interventions of the Authority on the subject of ‘cookies’ and this despite the fact that this site does not use profiling cookies.

Cookies used by this website

CAST – COOPERATIVA ANONIMA SERVIZI TIPOGRAFICI Società Cooperativa informs Users that its website uses the following types of cookies:

  • First-party technical cookies, which are necessary for the correct and efficient operation of our website and do not require the User’s consent;
  • Third-party technical cookies, which do not require the User’s consent, and third-party analytical cookies, which are assimilated to technical cookies in that tools have been adopted to reduce the identifying power of the cookies (by masking significant portions of the IP address) and the third party does not cross-reference the information collected with other information it already has.

In particular, Google Analytics and other technical cookies from Google, Woocommerce, Paypal and Mailchimp,the privacy and cookies policy of which should therefore be referred to.

Social network buttons

Social Buttons are buttons on the site that allow Users who are browsing to interact with social platforms with one click.

The Social Buttons used by the website are links which redirect to theData Controller’s accounts on the social networks shown.

The use of these buttons does not, therefore, entail the installation of third-party cookies on our site.

CAST – COOPERATIVA ANONIMA SERVIZI TIPOGRAFICI Società Cooperativa uses, in particular, the social buttons of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn. In general, beyond the type of cookies used by this website, we would like to inform Users that, in addition to the protections provided for by current legislation, there are possible

Options for navigating without cookies

Which include:

Blocking third-party cookies: third-party cookies are generally not essential for browsing, so the User can refuse them by default, through special functions in the User’s browser.

Activating the ‘Do Not Track’ option:the ‘Do Not Track’ option exists on the majority of the latest generation of browsers. Websites designed to comply with this option should automatically stop collecting certain browsing data when it is activated. As mentioned, however, not all websites are set up to respect this (discretionary) option.

Activating ‘incognito’ mode: with this function, the User can browse without leaving any trace of his or her browsing data in the browser. Sites will not remember the User, pages he or she visits will not be stored in his or her history and new cookies will be deleted. However, incognito surfing does not guarantee anonymity on the Internet, as it only serves to keep the User’s browsing data out of his or her browser, whereas his or her surfing data will continue to be available to website operators and connectivity providers.

Deleting cookies directly: there are functions for this in all browsers. However, it should be remembered that new cookies are downloaded every time the User connects to the Internet, so these will require periodic deletion. If desired, some browsers offer automated systems for the periodic deletion of cookies.

The Data Controller has not designated a D.P.O. (Article 37 EU Reg. 679/2016 and WP Guidelines Article 29 of 13/12/2016), as this figure is not necessary within the structure, given that the characteristics of the processing do not fall within the parameters referred to in the aforementioned Article 37.

2.5 Security measures

The Data Controller, taking into account the state of the art and the costs of implementation as well as the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing both when determining the means of processing and at the time of processing itself (risk analysis – accountability), has put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures aimed at effectively implementing the data protection principles and integrating the necessary safeguards into the processing in order to meet the requirements of EU Reg. 679/2016 and protect the rights of the data subject.

The data will be processed using methods and tools suitable for guaranteeing its security (Articles 24, 25 and 32 EU Reg. 679/2016) and will be carried out through automated processes and through non-automated means (paper-based archives), to which all technical and organisational measures will be applied to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, so as to ensure on a permanent basis, their confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of the processing systems and services (by way of example but not limited to: controls both on the assignment of tasks to the persons in charge of data processing and on the classification of the data themselves; procedures, if sustainable, of pseudonymisation and encryption etc.).
