COOKIE INFORMATION pursuant to Article 13 of the Privacy Code (Legislative Decree 196/2003)

As required under Article 13 of Legislative Decree 196/2003 (Privacy Code) Finaf S.p.A., the owner of the authorisation to use personal data, hereby states that this website uses cookies.

The following information applies only to the website and not to any other websites that the user might consult or access through links that this website may include.

Cookies are text files that contain bundles of information that are stored on the directory of the web browser of a user’s computer or mobile device (e.g. notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) every time a website is accessed online through the browser. Whenever this website is visited again subsequently, the browser sends these cookies to the website that originated them or to another website. The cookies allow these websites to memorise some information so that the person visiting the website can explore it quickly and easily. A cookie cannot bring up any other data from the user’s hard drive, not can it transmit computer viruses or obtain email addresses. Every cookie is unique to the user’s browser. Similar technologies, e.g. web beacons or transparent GIFs, can be used to gather information on a user’s behaviour and his/her use of the services.
In this document entitled “Cookie Information”, all such technologies will be referred to as “cookies”.

The legislation governing the use of cookies has recently been amended following the implementation of Directive 2009/136 which amended E-Privacy Directive (2002/58/CE) and as a result of the provisions governing the handling of personal data issued by the “Garante”, the Italian Data Protection Authority, as set out in “Identification of simplified procedures for the disclosure of information and the acquisition of consent to the use of cookies - 8 May 2014.”

There are various types of cookies, some devised to make use of the website more efficient and to improve the browsing experience of the user, others enabling particular functions to operate. More information on cookies can be found at the following URL sites:


Types of cookies used


1. Technical cookies
Technical cookies are used to make certain sections of the website function correctly.
This internet website uses only technical cookies, those that are “strictly necessary to transmit a communication or provide a specific service as requested by a subscriber or user” (Article 122 paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code).

They can be divided into browser cookies and session cookies, which ensure that the website functions properly:

• analytics cookies, which are technical cookies when they are used to measure and analyse overall user numbers and behaviour on a particular website;
• functionality cookies, which make it possible to tailor the website according to various choices made by the user (e.g. language, etc), in order to provide improved service.

No prior consent from users is required for the installation of these types of cookies, although the obligation to provide information about them still stands, in accordance with Article 13 of the Code.
The acquisition and processing of data obtained by the use of technical cookies is necessary if the website is to function properly. If a user objects to the use of these technical cookies, he/she will not be able to access and view the website properly.

Here is a list of the technical and analytics cookies used by this website:

• __utmt
• dontShowCookieAlert

Apart from technical cookies, the general rule governing the use of an electronic communication network “to gain access to information stored in the terminal equipment of a subscriber or user” is that prior informed consent must be given by the user, i.e. that the user should opt in rather than opt out.
This means that all cookies that cannot rightly be termed “technical”, and which therefore are more critical for user privacy protection, e.g. those used to provide a profile of the user, may not be installed on users’ terminals unless the user has been adequately informed in advance and has given a valid consent.

Here is a list of the profile cookies used by this website:

• __atuvc
• __atuvs
• __utma
• __utmb
• __utmc
• __utmz
