Information regarding the use of cookies on the web site www.acsys.it

Pursuant to Article. 13 of Legislative Decree. N. 196/03, “Code for the Protection of Personal Data” (hereinafter the “Code”), the following information explains both what cookies are and the various types of cookies on the website www.acsys.it (hereinafter, the “site”).

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and record on his computer or mobile device, and which are then re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit. Thanks to cookies, the site remembers the actions and preferences of the user (for example, a login, your preferred language, the font size, or other display settings, etc.) so that they do not need to be indicated again when you re-visit that site and browse from page to page.

Cookies are therefore used to perform authentication, monitoring sessions and to memorise information about the activities of users accessing a website and may also contain a unique identifier that makes it possible to track users navigation and experience on the site for statistical or advertising purposes. During the navigation of a site, users may receive on their computer or mobile device also cookies from sites or web servers other than the one they are visiting (so-called third-party cookies) Some operations may not be possible without the use of cookies, which in some cases are technically necessary for the operation of the site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these may remain on a user’s computer or mobile device for different time periods: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device until a pre-established date.

Under current Italian legislation, the use of cookies does not always require express consent. In particular, such consent is not required for the so-called “technical” cookies, i.e. cookies used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of data over an electronic communications network, or strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, cookies that are essential for the functioning of the site or to perform tasks requested by the user.
Among the technical cookies, which do not require consent for their use, the Italian Authority for the Protection of Personal Data (cfr. General Measure for the “Identification of simplified procedures for information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookie – May 8, 2014”) also includes:

“analytic cookies” when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate, about the number of users and how they visit the site,
navigation or session cookies (for authentication, to make purchases, etc.),
functional cookies, which allow the user to browse the site based on a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.
On the other hand, for so-called profiling cookies, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles of users and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the users surfing habits, prior consent of the user is required.

The ACS web site does not make use of profiling cookies:
