A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user's computer by the user's web browser. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember information or to record the user's browsing activity. They can also be used to remember arbitrary pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields such as names or addresses.
Other kinds of cookies perform essential functions in the modern web. Perhaps most importantly, authentication cookies are the most common method used by web servers to know whether the user is logged in or not, and which account they are logged in with. Without such a mechanism, the site would not know whether to send a page containing sensitive information, or require the user to authenticate themselves by logging in.
Tracking cookies, and especially third-party tracking cookies, are commonly used as ways to compile long-term records of individuals' browsing histories – a potential privacy concern that prompted European and U.S. lawmakers to take action in 2011. European law requires all websites targeting European Union member states gain "informed consent" from users before storing non-essential cookies on their device.
EXTENDED INFORMATION - COOKIES
(i) BL2 S.r.l. as the data controller, informs the user that information regarding the use of the site through cookies is collected. When a user visits the site, we send to his device cookies that are stored uniquely by his browser. Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his device, where they are stored and then transmitted to the same sites on the occasion of the next visit by the same user. Furthermore, when browsing the site, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different websites or web servers (so-called Third Parties). The user is informed that the site also sends third-party cookies. This site uses technical cookies, and Third Party cookies, as described below.
1. Technical cookies.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service "(Guarantor Provision for the protection of personal data, Register of Measures No. 229 of 8 May 2014). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website.
They can be divided into three types:
to. browsing or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
b. analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
c. Functional cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.
The user is informed that the use of technical cookies does not provide for the prior consent. The provision of data is essential for the purpose of browsing the site.
2. Third-party cookies.
Third Party cookies can be installed either directly by subjects with whom we have concluded agreements, or by third parties with whom we have only indirect relationships through intermediaries.
Below are the links:
a) the information and consent forms on cookies available on the sites of Third Parties with whom we have entered into agreements and which send cookies through our site:
b) to the sites of the subjects that act as intermediaries between us and the Third Parties that install cookies on our site with which we only have indirect contacts:
(ii) The data collected through cookies, will be used by the owner, his employees responsible for maintenance and management of the site and more generally by all employees including third parties (service providers, infrastructure, IT and similar) that they are involved in the management and supervision of the same and duly appointed as data controllers. The list of managers is available, upon request, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a request to our office in Via Manzoni, 3 34170 Gorizia (GO). As is known, the user is entitled to all the rights provided for in Article 7 of Legislative Decree 196/2003 and therefore by way of example, will be able to access his data, request correction, integration and, if necessary, cancellation or blocking .

(iv) We remind the user once again that by returning to the home page and starting browsing, he is still indicating his willingness to accept cookies.

Finally, remember that the non-acceptance of third-party cookies may not allow you to use all the features of the site. Unfortunately, we are not able to individually identify the consequences for the non-acceptance of each individual cookie, as we are not able to hypothesize the consequences resulting from all the possible combinations of cookies accepted or not accepted.
