    Based on Recital 30) of the GDPR, “individuals may be associated with on-line identifiers produced by their devices, applications, tools and protocols, such as IP addresses, with temporary markers (cookies) or other identifiers, such as radio-frequency identification tags. These identifiers may leave traces which, in particular, if combined with unique identifiers and other information received by the servers, may be used to create profiles of the individuals and identify them”. Moreover: based on the definition of “personal data” referred to in article 4(1) of the GDPR, according to which the term means “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, unique identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social or gender identity of that person”.

  • Types of cookies used by the Bormioli Pharma S.P.A. website and relative purpose

    The www.bormiolipharma.com website (hereinafter also referred to as the “website”) envisages use of the cookies listed below along with their purpose.

    Technical cookies: in general, technical cookies refer to the ones which make browsing through the website possible and/or are needed to provide the services requested by the user. Without the use of these cookies, certain operations cannot be performed or would be more complicated and/or less secure, for example home banking activities (access to bank statements, bank transfers, payment of bills, etc.) for which cookies that allow the user to log-in and remain identified throughout the session, are essential. 

    More specifically, the www.bormiolipharma.com website uses:
    – 
    Technical cookies:
    – in order to keep track of the data provided by the user when filling in on-line forms on some of the website pages, as with the wishlist cart and the acceptance/acknowledgement of this Cookie Policy;
    – for the purpose of authentication and user login to the “Investors” Area (WordPress cookies).

    So-called technical cookies explicitly refer to art. 122 of the Privacy Code, establishing, in paragraph 1, that it is not prohibited, in the absence of the user’s consent to proceed with, “technical storage or access to stored information for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service”.

    Therefore, prior user consent is not required for the installation of these cookies.

    Based on what is specified by the provision issued by the Italian Data Protection Authority on 8 May 2014 concerning the “Identification of simplified methods for information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies” and lastly confirmed by the same Authority on 4 October 2018, analytical cookies “may be assimilated with technical cookies only if used to optimise the website directly by the owner of said website, who will be able to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site. Under these conditions, the same rules apply to analytical cookies as to technical cookies in terms of policy and consent”.

    Analytical cookies (or analytics): in general, analytical cookies mean those cookies which form the basis of tools used to carry out statistical surveys on visits to websites. These tools are mainly used by website owners to estimate the number of single visitors, in order to identify the main keywords for the search engines which lead to a web page or identify any website browsing issues.

    More specifically, the www.bormiolipharma.com website uses:
    – 
    Analytical cookies or analytics by Google Analytics (third-party cookies)
    – 
    in order to obtain information on how the Bormioli Pharma S.p.A. site is used, i.e. who its users are, how users interact with the website, how long they stay there, what pages they look at, etc. 

    Although analytical cookies are often considered a “strictly necessary” tool for website managers, they are not strictly necessary to offer the functions explicitly requested by the user. In fact, the user can access all the features offered by the website even if these cookies are disabled (hence WP29 in Opinion 04/2012 on the exemption of consent for the use of cookies adopted on 7 June 2012).

    In the “Clarifications regarding the implementation of the legislation on cookies” formulated by Italian Data Protection Authority following the already cited provision of 8 May 2014, it states that “In many cases, […] websites use analytical cookies created and made available by third parties, merely for statistical purposes. In these cases, it is believed that the aforementioned websites are not subject to the obligations and fulfilments envisaged by the legislation […] if suitable tools are adopted to reduce the identifying power of the analytical cookies they use (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP address. The use of such cookies must also be subject to contractual obligations between websites and third parties, in which express reference is made to the commitment of the third party to use them exclusively for the provision of the service, to store them separately and not to “enrich” them or “cross reference them” with other information they have. 

    The Google Analitycs system present on the www.bormiolipharma.com website does not allow the user’s IP address to be traced as the usage profiles created by Google Analytics are “anonymised”, thus making it impossible to trace the actual user. Only in special cases is the entire IP address transmitted to a Google server where it is then abbreviated.
