The EU Regulation 2016/679 and the current Italian regulations establish the right of anyone to the protection of the personal data that concern them. The regulations in question lay down that the processing of the personal data is conducted in compliance with the rights and the fundamental freedoms as well as the dignity of the person concerned, having particular regard for the right to the confidentiality and protection of personal data. In accordance with the order of the Privacy Authority, dated 8 May 2014, on “Identification of the simplified methods for the information briefing and acquisition of consent to the use of cookies” and published in the Official Gazette on 3 June 2014, Esercizi Aeroportuali S.E.A. (“SEA”), a joint-stock company, provides you with the following information regarding the cookies installed on the internet site (the “Website”). This Website uses technical cookies of its own and third parties and third-party profiling cookies; below, we, therefore, provide the information laid down by the regulations of reference.

What Cookies are

Cookies are small strings of text that websites visited by the user send to the terminal (usually the browser), where they are saved before being re-sent to the same websites at the next visit by the same user. When browsing a website, the user may also receive cookies on his terminal sent by different web servers or websites (referred to as “third party”) on which certain elements may be held (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the website that he is visiting. Three categories of cookies are identified: “technical” cookies, “non-anonymous analytical” cookies and “profiling” cookies, own and third party.

Technical cookies

The technical cookies are those used merely to “transmit a communication on an electronic communication network or to the extent strictly necessary to the supplier of an information society service, specifically asked by the contractor or user to supply said service” (Art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Personal Data Protection Code). They are not used for any further purpose and are normally installed directly by the Controller or website manager. They can be divided up into browsing or session cookies, which guarantee the normal browsing and use of the website (allowing, for example, a purchase to be made or user to identify himself in order to access reserved areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies, where used directly by the website manager to collect information in aggregated form on the number of users and on how they visit the website; function cookies that enable the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, products chosen for purchase) in order to improve the service offered. For the installation of technical cookies, no prior user consent is required, whilst the obligation remains to provide a disclosure in accordance with Art. 13 of the Personal Data Protection Code, which the website manager, if only using these devices, may supply in the way it considers most appropriate.
