Pursuant to article 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), Tooa S.p.A., Reg. No. 02823780420, with registered office in Fabriano (AN - Italy), Via Giovanni Pascoli, 2, (hereinafter “Tooa”), provides you with the following information concerning the cookies installed on the domain www.tooa.com (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”).
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files, usually consisting of letters and/or numbers, which are sent by the Website and stored by the browser installed on the device you are using for browsing. Cookies are then sent back to the Website on your next visit. Cookies make it possible to store information about visits to the Website and are a very useful technology because they help the Website to function more efficiently. Without cookies, the Website would not be able to ‘remember’ certain information, such as orders placed.
Cookies can be classified according to:
- duration: session or persistent cookies;
- origin: first-party or third-party cookies;
- purposes: strictly necessary cookies, performance analysis cookies and behavioural advertising cookies.
Cookies that expire at the end of a browser session (normally when the browser is closed or when the session expires) are called session cookies and are useful for example to keep the browsing session active. On the other hand, cookies that are stored for a longer period of time (between sessions) are called persistent cookies and are used, for example, to remember your preferences or to display targeted advertising or store information such as your login name and password.
The definition of first-party or third party refers to the website or domain that installs the cookie. First-party cookies are installed directly by the Website, whereas third-party cookies are installed by a different domain, for example, if the Website incorporates elements from other services, such as advertising platforms.
It should be noted that the purposes a cookie usually serves may also be achieved through other similar technologies, including the use of certain features that allow devices to be identified so that visits to the Website can be analysed. This policy applies to any technology that stores or accesses information on your device. Examples include HTML5 local storage, Local Shared Objects (also called flash cookies) and fingerprinting techniques. From now on, when we talk about cookies, this definition will also include other comparable technologies.
What are the purposes of the cookies used by this website?
Strictly necessary cookies or technical cookies: these allow the proper functioning of the Website and enable you to take advantage of its contents and services easily: for example, you will be able to browse the website while keeping the contents of your shopping cart or you will not have to perform any action on the banner containing the short information every time you access the Website, because your choice of consent will be recorded. Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled and your prior consent is not required for their installation. These cookies are stored in your browser for the time necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the Website and, in the case of persistent cookies, for no longer than one year.
Performance analytics cookies are installed to measure certain actions you take while browsing the Website. These cookies are very useful for statistically analysing your accesses or visits to the Website, in order to optimise its structure, navigation patterns and contents. These cookies are not necessary for the operation of the Website, so your consent is required to install them.
Below is a table containing all the information about the cookies for performance analysis used throughout the Website:
These cookies are not necessary for the operation of the Website, so your consent is required to install them. If consent is not given, this may hinder the full use of the website.
How do you manage preferences about cookies?
When you first access any page of the Website, you will see a banner allowing you to manage the COOKIE CONSENT CENTRE through which you can easily choose which cookies to install.
In addition to the above, you can also change your cookie settings via your browser by deleting all or some cookies or by restricting cookies to certain websites. Below are instructions for changing your cookie settings for the most common browsers you use:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Microsoft Edge
Disabling or deleting cookies may affect the optimal use of certain areas of the Website or prevent certain features, as well as affect the operation of third-party services.
Your consent is optional, free and revocable at any time by changing the settings of your operating system or through the appropriate section of the website. Revoking consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing carried out prior to revocation in accordance with Article 7 of the Regulation.
How data may be communicated
The data collected using the aforementioned cookies may be processed by employees and collaborators of the company departments responsible for pursuing the aforementioned purposes, who have been expressly authorised to do so and have received adequate operating instructions. This data may also be processed by trusted companies that carry out technical and organisational tasks on TooA's behalf. These companies act as Data Controllers. In particular, as part of the data processing carried out through the Website, the company responsible for the hosting and backup service for the Website’s data has been appointed. Furthermore, data may be processed by external parties acting as autonomous controllers such as, for example, authorities and supervisory and control bodies. Data collected using cookies will not be transferred outside the EU.
Using the contact details in the ‘Contact us’ section of the website you can ask TooA to access your personal data, delete them, limit their processing in the cases provided for by art. 18 of the GDPR, and oppose their processing in cases of legitimate interest of Tooa. If the processing is based on consent or on contract and is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive the data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and, if technically feasible, to transmit it to another data controller without hindrance. You also have the right to revoke your consent for unnecessary cookies without affecting the operation and functionality of the Website. Finally, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority.
