This website uses third-party cookies. If you continue browsing you accept their use, otherwise you can leave the website. On the extended policy page you can deny consent to the installation of any cookies.

Extended policy on the use of cookies on the website

Pursuant to the privacy legislation (Privacy Code Legislative Decree No. 196/2003 and EU Regulation No. 679/2016, hereinafter "GDPR"), as well as in accordance with the provisions of Measure No. 229 of 8 May 2014 issued by the Personal Data Protection Authority, on this page the Data Controller provides users of the website with information on the cookies used for and/or dedicated to storage.

The Data Controller of your personal data is METALMEC S.r.l. with registered office in Mapello (Bg), Via S. Cassiano 6, VAT No. and Tax Code 02082890167 registered at the Bergamo Register of Companies, tel. 035 4945858, email (hereinafter “Controller” or METALMEC)

This extended policy on the use of cookies (hereinafter also "Cookie Policy") has the purpose of describing the elements required by law, describing the characteristics and purposes of cookies installed by the website, including the updated link to the policies and consent forms of the third parties with which the Controller has entered into agreements for the installation of cookies through its website and, finally, recalling the possibility for users to express their cookie options also through the settings of the browser used.

What are cookies

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their devices. These files are stored in them and then sent back to the same source websites, for example, during a subsequent visit. Cookies can be stored inside the user's device directly by the website that the latter is visiting (first party website) or by a different, so-called "third party", website, because in every website, there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that may reside and/or lead the user to links on servers other than those that provide the first party website. Thanks to the storage of cookies, users can customise the use of certain contents of the website by saving their favourite settings. For example, it is possible to set up a cookie for recognition of the user registered on the website without the same, upon a new visit, having to a authenticate himself again.

Taxonomy proposed by the Authority

In Measure No. 229 of 8 May 2014, the Personal Data Protection Authority identified two categories of cookies based on two possible processing purposes:

  1. Technical cookies;
  2. Profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

These cookies are used for browsing and/or provide a service to the user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the Controller of the website. Without the use of these cookies, certain operations cannot be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as home-banking activities (display of the statement, bank transfers, bill payment, etc.), for which cookies, which make it possible to perform and maintain the user's identification during the session, are indispensable.

Profiling cookies

These cookies are used to track user browsing on the web and create profiles on tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies, advertising messages can be transmitted to the user's device in line with the preferences already expressed by such user while browsing on line.

User consent for installation of cookies on the device

The expression of consent for the storage of cookies depends on the purposes for which the cookies are used and, depending on whether they fall under the classification of "technical cookies" or "profiling cookies"". For the installation of technical cookies, no consent is required from users while, in the case of third-party cookies, it is necessary, inter alia, to provide an appropriate policy (pursuant to Article 13 of EU Regulation No. 679/2016). On the other hand, with regard only to profiling cookies, the same can be installed on the user's device only if the same has expressed his free, voluntary, specific and unequivocal consent after being adequately informed.

Acquisition of consent for the storage of cookies

To keep track of the consent acquired, the Controller of the website uses a specific technical cookie, a system that is not particularly invasive and that does not require further consent. In the presence of such "documentation", it is not necessary for the short policy to be displayed again upon the second visit of the user to the website, without prejudice to the possibility for the latter to deny consent and/or change his options at any time and in an easy manner, for example through access to the extended policy, which must therefore be accessible from every page of the website.

Provision of data

Except for technical cookies strictly necessary for normal browsing, the provision of data is up to the data subject who decides to browse the website after having read the short policy contained in the specific banner. The data subject can therefore avoid the installation of cookies by keeping the banner (refraining from closing it by selecting the "OK" button), as well as through the special functions available in his browser. Alternatively, he can stop browsing.
