(iii) Data acquired through cookies, methods of processing, purposes of the processing, retention periods, and legal basis
Cookies can be defined as «small strings of text that websites visited by a user send to his or her terminal (generally the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same websites the next time the user visits them. When browsing a website, the user may receive on his or her terminal also cookies sent by other websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), which may contain some elements (such as images, maps, sounds, links to pages of other domains) hosted on the website that he or she is visiting. Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes even for a considerable amount of time, are used for different purposes: computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users accessing the server, etc.» (see Provision on Cookies)
It is necessary to take into account that there are different categories of cookies, classified according to objective (non-persistent cookies, also known as a session or browsing cookies; persistent or functionality cookies; analytical cookies with anonymized IP and analytical cookies without anonymized IP; profiling cookies) and subjective (cookies installed by the Controller or the Website manager, so-called “editor” or “first party”; cookies installed by others, so-called third parties) criteria.
(iii).1. How to disable and/or reject cookies
Generally, the Data Subject has the possibility, at any time, to set his or her browser in such a way as to accept all cookies, or only some of them, as well as to reject them, by disabling their use by the Website.
Furthermore, the Data Subject can normally set the preferences on his or her browser so as to be warned any time a cookie is stored in the memory of his or her device.
Also, at the end of each browsing session, the Data Subject can delete from his or her hard disk both the browser cache and the cookies stored. The deactivation of cookies by the Data Subject on his or her device does not compromise nor affect in any way his or her interaction with the Website.

The personal data of the Data Subject may also be disclosed, as part of their tasks and duties, to the Data Protection Officer (DPO) appointed by the Controller. Finally, the user’s personal data may also be disclosed to the competent authorities whenever specific legal requirements exist, namely in the case of offenses committed by the users, if the Controller is aware of them, without this implying a general duty of surveillance by the Controller.
If there are third-party cookies, any data processed through them may be processed by the said third parties, if so envisaged by the privacy notice (namely, for the provision of the service), without prejudice to the right of the Data Subject to block the use of these cookies through the settings of his or her browser or in the ways explained in this extended privacy notice [see paragraph (iii).2 above].
Rights of the Data Subject
Furthermore, in accordance with the provisions of the Regulation, the Data Subject may exercise the rights set forth in articles 15 to 21 of the Regulation, namely:

– right to erasure (so-called “right to be forgotten”) pursuant to Article 17 of the Regulation, that is, the right of the Data Subject to obtain, without undue delay, the erasure of his or her personal data if: a) the data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is has been collected or otherwise processed; b) the Data Subject withdraws his or her consent and there is no other legal ground for processing; c) the Data Subject successfully objects to the processing of personal data; d) the data is unlawfully processed; e) the data has to be erased to fulfill a legal requirement; f) the personal data has been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8, paragraph 1, of the Regulation. The right to erasure does not apply if the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation or to carry out a task in the public interest or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims;
– right to restriction of processing pursuant to Article 18 of the Regulation, which is the right of the Data Subject to obtain restriction of processing when: a) the Data Subject contests the accuracy of personal data; b) the processing is unlawful and the Data Subject objects to the erasure of personal data and request restriction of its use instead; c) the personal data is necessary to the Data Subject for the establishment, exercise and defense of legal claims; d) the Data Subject has objected to processing pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the Data Subject;

The Data Subject shall also have the right to have his or personal data transmitted directly by Andrea Taddei to another Controller, where technically feasible;
– right to object under Article 21 of Regulation, which gives the Data Subject the right to object, at any time, to the processing of his or her data which is based on a condition of the legitimacy of the legitimate interest, including profiling, unless the Controller has legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interest, rights, and freedom of the Data Subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims;
– right not to be subject to an automated decision-making process pursuant to Article 22 of the Regulation, which means that the Data Subject has the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless said decision is necessary to enter into or perform a contract or the Data Subject has given his or her consent. In any case, an automated decision-making process shall not concern the personal data of the Data Subject and the User may, at any time, obtain human intervention of the Controller, express his or her point of view, and contest the decision;
– right to withdraw consent at any time. The withdrawal must be as easy as giving consent and shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

The Data Subject may exercise the abovementioned rights towards the Controller by using the contact details provided herein.
Pursuant to Article 12 of the Regulation, the exercise on the part of the Data Subject of the abovementioned rights is free of charge. However, in the event of manifestly unfounded, excessive, or repetitive requests, the Controller may charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of managing or denying the request.

That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of the requests.
Finally, if the Controller has doubts about the identity of the natural person making the request, the Controller may request any additional information necessary to confirm the identity of the Data Subject.
Amendments The Controller may make changes to this privacy notice. Users are therefore invited, either when accessing the Website and/or at any time, to read the privacy notice on the processing of personal data in its updated version, made available to the data subjects for consultation.
