Cookie Policy

1. Premise
This cookie policy refers exclusively to the website www.solomeo.it (“Website”) and must be understood as an inherent part of the Privacy Policy of the same.

2. Definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send and record on his/her personal computer or mobile device, these cookies are then re-transmitted to the same websites upon the user’s subsequent visit. Precisely because of cookies, a website remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as login data, chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) in such a way that they do not have to be newly indicated when the user returns to visit the above-mentioned website or browse from one page to another. Therefore, cookies are used to perform computer authentications, to monitor sessions and store information concerning the activities of the users who access a website. Cookies may also contain a unique identification code that enables a user’s browsing within the website to be tracked for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a website, the user may also receive cookies from websites or web servers other than the one he/she is visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies) on his/her computer or mobile device. Some operations may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are, therefore, technically necessary for the functioning of the above-mentioned website.
There are various types of cookies, according to their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s devices until a predetermined deadline.
According to the legislation in force in Italy, the user’s express consent is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, “technical cookies”, namely cookies used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or used to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not require such consent. In other words, these are cookies that are indispensable for the operation of the website or that are necessary to perform activities requested by the user.
Among the technical cookies which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (see Identification Provision of simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies dated May 8th, 2014, hereinafter referred to as “Provision”) also include:

  • “cookie analytics” where used directly by the webmaster to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website,
  • browsing or session cookies which ensure normal browsing and accessibility of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or login to access restricted areas);
  • functional cookies, that allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the same

Conversely, for “profiling cookies”, that is, those designed to create user profiles and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same user in the context of web-browsing, the user’s prior consent is required.

3. Types of cookies used on this Website

Inhibiting functionality cookies could mean that some services or certain functions of the Website are not available or do not function correctly and the user may be forced to change or manually enter some information or preferences each time they visit the Website.
The lack of authorisation with respect to other cookies indicated by third parties will not affect the operation of the Website; however, since such types of cookies are sent exclusively by third parties and the Webmaster cannot control the sending of such cookies to the user’s terminal, the relative objection can only be exercised by accessing the consent forms prepared by the above-mentioned third parties, if any, or through the user’s browser settings.
