Privacy Notice under article 13 of General Data Protection Regulation EU 2016/679 (GDPR) 

The following privacy notice is an extension of the information on the use of cookies and other tracking tools provided to you through the minimal information notice included in the banner shown on first accessing any website’s page. 

This page is addressed to users that are browsing the following website: brama-group.com (“Website”) 

The Data Controller is Brama Srl with registered office in Via dei Torrazzi, 41, 41122 Modena, Italy (“Data Controller” or “Company”), 

1. Definitions, characteristics, and application of the legislation 

Cookies are small text files that may be sent to and registered on your computer or mobile device by the websites you visit, to then be re-sent to those same sites when you visit them again 

It is thanks to these cookies that those websites can “remember” your actions and preferences (e.g., login data, language, font size, other display settings, etc.), so that you do not need to configure them again when you next visit the website, or when you change pages within a website. Cookies are, therefore, used for electronic authentication, monitoring of sessions and storage of information regarding your activities when accessing a website. They may also contain a unique ID code which allows tracking of your browsing activities within a website, for statistical or advertising purposes. 

Categorization of cookies 

When browsing a website, besides cookies directly placed by the visited website (i.e., “first party cookies”), you may also receive on your device cookies from websites or web servers other than the website being visited (i.e., “third-party cookies”). 

Some operations within a website may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies which, in certain cases, are technically necessary for operation of the website. 

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, which may be stored on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time: “session cookies” or “browsing cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, and “permanent cookies”, which will remain on your device until their pre-set expiration period passes. 

There are also “analytics cookies”, used to assess the effectiveness of an information society service provided in order to design a website or to help measure its “traffic” – i.e., the number of visitors, possibly broken down by geographical area, connection time slot or other characteristics. 

According to the law which may be applicable to you, your consent may not always be necessary for cookies to be used through the Website. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e., cookies used exclusively to transmit messages over an electronic communications network, or otherwise strictly necessary to provide a service specifically requested by you – typically do not require this consent. In other words, these are cookies which are indispensable for operation of the Website or required to perform activities you request and without them some operations could not be performed or could be more complex and/or less secure. 

Among technical cookies, for which use is not required a consent, the italian supervisory authority “Garante per la protezione dei dati personali” (see Guidelines on the use of cookies and other tracking tools – 10 June 2021 and subsequent clarifications, hereinafter “Guidelines”) encompasses also:

  • analytics cookies when, through their use, the possibility to directly identify the data subject (i.e., “single out”) is prevented, therefore blocking the use of analytics cookies that could result in direct and unique identifiers. Furthermore, the structure of such cookies must encompass the possibility to refer not to one device, but to multiple devices, in order to create a reasonable uncertainty on the IT identity of the cookie recipient (usually this is done by masking out appropriate portions of IP address in the cookie as indicated in the Guidelines). Finally, to be identified as technical, analytics cookies must be limited to the sole production of aggregate statistics and must be used in relation to a single website/mobile application in order to prevent the tracking of the person who use different application or browse different websites. 
  • session cookies or browsing cookies 
  • Function cookies, which allows you to browse accordingly some selected criteria (e.g., language, products picked for purchase), in order to improve your experience. 

Otherwise, for “profiling cookies”, aimed to create users’ profile and used to customize the service beyond what is strictly necessary for its provision, to send targeted advertisements in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of his/her web browsing and/or to analyze and monitor the user behaviour, a prior consent is required.
