Our Cookie policy

 

Introduction

We at the Aventino Medical Group want to help our users understand how we collect, use, and disclose information from and about you so that you can make informed choices about what happens when you access our site. We use the term “cookie” to refer to those technologies permitted under the law (for example Local Shared Objects – commonly called “flash cookies”- and web beacons or bugs, among which clear GIFs).  The information gathered concerns data that could make it possible to identify the users/visitors through association and processing with data held by third parties (among which, for instance, numbers of IP addresses, domain names of the computers used by people who access our website). This data is used only for statistical purposes.

This document is an integral and significant part of our Privacy Policy and of the information it contains, as per article 13 of the EU regulation 2016/679 (GDPR). We encourage you to read this policy. 

 

Applicable laws

This area is regulated by the European Directive 2002/58/CE, subsequently modified by Directive 2009/136/CE and adopted by the national legislatures of the member States of the European Union, that requires obtaining consent for cookies and similar technologies.

 

What is a cookie

A cookie is a small text file (usually in letters and numbers) sent to and stored on your computer or other internet-connected device when the user accesses a website. These cookies are then sent to the original site at every successive access. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device.  

The use of cookies and similar technologies has long been customary in that cookies are important in supplying many online services. The use of these technologies is not, therefore, forbidden by the law but they require that the user be informed about the cookies and be offered the possibility to accept or refuse them.   

 

Different kinds of Cookies

Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies

Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (starting when the user opens a window of the browser to when he closes it) or they can be stored for longer periods..

Session Cookies – these make it possible for websites to connect the actions of a user during a browser session. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as recording what the user has put in a shopping cart while navigating on the site. They can also be used for security purposes when a user does internet banking or to facilitate the use of webmail. These session cookies expire when the user ends the browser session. 

The use of session cookies (that are not recorded in a persistent way on the user’s  computer and are cancelled automatically as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the purposes of data transmission (made up of random numbers generated by the server) that identify the specific session and are necessary to allow for safe and efficient navigation. The session cookies used in this site make it possible to avoid resorting to other techniques that could potentially jeopardize the user’s  privacy while navigating.

 Persistent Cookies – these are memorized on the user’s  device between separate browser sessions and make it possible to remember the user’s  actions on the site. These persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, among which remembering the user’s  preferences and choices while using the site (or in some cases, through different websites)

 “First-party” and “Third-party” Cookies  – Whether the cookie is first- or third-party is closely tied to the website or domain that uses that particular cookie.“First-party”cookies are substantially cookies that have been set up by the same website visited by the user – that is, the site visualized in the URL window: in our case, the cookies set up by www.aventinomedicalgroup,com.“Third-party cookies”are those set up by a domain that is different from the one visited by the user, in other words cookies that are set up by websites that are not www.aventinomedicalgroup.com. If a user visits a website (such as www.aventinomedicalgroup.com) and a third agency sets up a cookie through www.aventinomedicalgroup.com, this would be called a “third-party”cookie.

 

Ownership of data treatment

Aventinomedicalgroup.com, as identified in the Privacy Policy, is the owner of the data treatment and is only responsible for its own cookies, that is the “first-party” cookies, whereas “third-party” cookies are the property of the agency they belong to, identified by the chart in this document

 

Consent for use of cookies

Some cookies are essential for Internet to work correctly and don’t require the user’s consent, such as those that guarantee the swift and effective loading of a page, the distribution of the work between different computers or those that guarantee security.  

Other cookies are also reasonably necessary or important but are not indispensable and therefore require the user’s consent.  

This site uses different methods for collecting the user’s consent: one is by ticking a specific box on  the cookie banner posted on the opening page of the site and which shows the use of cookies. 

The browser settings are another means of giving or denying consent for cookies. The user can set up the browser in order to be warned of the presence of cookies, making it possible to decide whether to accept them or not. It is also possible to automatically refuse all cookies by activating the appropriate browser option. 

Every browser provides instructions for this purpose.
