COOKIES POLICY OF THE WEBSITE en.hanshow.com
The directive on the use of so-called “cookies” and other similar instruments on the terminals (personal computers, notebooks, PC tablets, smartphones, etc.) used by users has been modified with the implementation of Directive 2009/136/EC, which modified the “e-privacy” Directive 2002/58/CE. The new directive was implemented in Italy with Legislative Decree no. 69 of 28 May 2012, which amended Legislative Decree no. 196 of 30 June 2003 “Code regarding the protection of personal data”. Specifically, it replaced Article 122 of Decree 196/03 with the following provisions: 1. the storage of information on the terminal devices of subscribers or users or access to information already stored are permitted only if the subscribers or users have expressed their consent after being informed through the simplified procedure set forth in Article 13.3. This does not preclude the technical storage of or access to information already stored if its sole purpose is to transmit a message over an electronic communications network or to the extent strictly necessary for the information company to provide a service explicitly requested by the subscribers or users to provide that service. For the purpose of determining this simplified procedure, the Authority also takes into account the proposals advanced by the most representative national consumers’ associations and the business categories concerned, to ensure the use of methods that ensure the full awareness of subscribers and end-users. 2. In order to express this consent, specific configurations of IT programs or devices can be used if their use is easy for and clear to subscribers and users.
