Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users forward to their terminals where they are saved to then be transferred back to said websites on the next visit. The so-called “third party” cookies are set by a website other than the one that the user is visiting. This because on each website, there could be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to webpages of other domains, etc.) which reside on different servers than the visited website.

  1. What are cookies for?

Cookies are used for different purposes: information authentication, monitoring of sessions, saving information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, saving preferences, etc.

  1. What are “technical” cookies?

These are cookies that are used to navigate or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for additional purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner of the website. Without using said cookies, certain tasks may not be carried out and would be more complex or less secured, such as for example home banking tasks (view account statements, bank transfers, payments of bills, etc.), where cookies identifying and maintaining the identification of the user in the sessions are essential.

  1. Are analytics cookies “technical” cookies?

No, the Data Protection Authority (see provision of 8 May 2014) stated that cookies can be classified as technical cookies if used to optimise the website directly by the owner of the website which may gather information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the website. At these conditions, the same rules on the informative statement and consent set out for technical cookies apply to analytics cookies.

  1. What are “profiling” cookies?

These are cookies used to trace the user’s navigation in the network and to create profiles on his/her taste, habits, options, etc. These cookies are used to transfer advertising messages to the user’s terminal based on the preferences already expressed by the user during his/her online navigation.

  1. Is the user’s consent required to install cookies in his/her terminal?

It depends on the purposes for which said cookies are used and therefore on whether they are “technical” cookies or “profiling” cookies.

The installation of technical cookies does not require the consent of users while providing the informative statement is required (article 13 of the Privacy Protection Code). Profiling cookies can however be installed on the user’s terminal only if the latter expressed his/her consent after being informed through the simplified methods.

  1. How does the owner of the website must provide the simplified informative statement and request the consent to use profiling cookies?

As established by the Data Protection Authority in the provision specified in question 4, the informative statement must be set on two levels.

When the user accesses a website (the home page or any other page), a banner shall immediately appear containing the “brief” informative statement, the consent request to use the cookies and a link to access the “extended” informative statement. In this page, the user may get additional, detailed information on cookies and choose what specific cookies to authorise.

  1. How must the banner be?

The banner must be big enough to cover part of the contents of the webpage that the user is viewing. It must be able to be removed only with the user’s active intervention, namely by selecting an element in the underlying page.

  1. What information must the banner contain?

The banner must specify that the website uses profiling cookies and possible “third party” cookies which allow for advertising messages to be sent based on the user’s preferences. It must contain the link to the extended informative statement and indication that the user can withdraw consent using said link to install any cookies. It must specify that if the user chooses to proceed by “skipping” the banner, consent to use the cookies is implied.

  1. How can the acquisition of the consent through the use of the banner be documented?

To keep track of the acquired consent, the owner of the website may rely on a special technical cookie, a system that is not particularly invasive and that does not require an additional consent. Given the presence of said “documentation”, the brief informative statement does not have to be re-proposed on the second visit of the user to the website, notwithstanding the possibility for the latter to withdraw the consent or modify the options at any time and easily, for example by accessing the extended informative statement through a link present on each page of the website.

  1. Can the online consent to use the cookies only be requested through the use of the banner?

No, the owners of the website can always use other methods with respect to those envisaged by the Data Protection Authority in the above-mentioned provision, as long as the chosen methods meet all the validity requirements of the consent required by law.

  1. Does the obligation to use the banner also apply to owners of website that only use technical cookies?

No, in this case, the owner of the website can provide the informative statement to users with the methods considered most appropriate, for example, even by including information in the privacy policy statement provided in the website.

  1. What must the “extended” informative statement include?

It must include all the elements envisaged by law, including a summary description of the characteristics and purposes of the cookies installed by the website and allow the user to select/unselect individual cookies. It must include the updated link to the informative statements and to the third party consent forms with which the data controller has taken out agreements for the installation of cookies through its own website. It must have a reference to the user’s possibility of choosing options on the cookies even by changing the settings of the used browser.

  1. Who must provide an informative statement and request consent to use cookies?

The owner of the website who installs the profiling cookies. As for third party cookies installed through the website, the obligations on the informative statement and consent apply to third parties, but the owner of the website, as technical intermediary between them and the users, must include in the “extended” informative statement, the updated links to the informative statements and consent forms of said third parties.

  1. Should the use of cookies be notified to the Data Protection Authority?

The profiling cookies that normally remain over time, are subject to notification obligation while cookies that have different purposes and that fall within the technical cookie category, do not have to be notified to the Data Protection Authority.

  1. When do the measures set out by the Data Protection Authority enter into force with the provisions of 8 May 2014?

The Data Protection Authority has set out a transitory period of one year, effective as of the publication of the provision in the Official Gazette, to allow those interested to comply accordingly. Said period will end on 2 June 2015.
