COOKIE USAGE POLICY

INTRODUCTION

This notice is provided to users in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Authority and in compliance with Article 13 of EU Regulation No. 679/2016 on the protection of personal data (the GDPR or Regulation).

The notice is prepared and updated by the Data Controller:

The notice is prepared and updated by the Data Controller, IHE Tour Operator S.r.l. Any requests regarding the use of cookies on this website can be sent to the email address admin@italyhiddenexperiences.com. The same address can be used to exercise the user’s rights under Article 15 and following of the Regulation, as well as to request the updated list of any Data Processors that may have been designated.

Processing is carried out under the authority of the Data Controller, only by specifically appointed, authorized, and trained individuals, and the data is not disseminated.

WHAT COOKIES ARE

Cookies are data that can be sent from a website to the user’s device while using it. These data are usually stored in the browser used for navigation. The website that transmitted the data can later read and record the cookies installed on the device to obtain various types of information, depending on the type of cookie used.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKIES

Cookies are mainly divided into two categories: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

The former are generally necessary to allow navigation and the proper functioning of the site: without them, the user might encounter technical issues when using the site. For these reasons, such cookies can be used without the user’s prior consent, as they are necessary.

Technical cookies are further divided into: navigation cookies (which ensure the correct use of the website), functionality cookies (which allow the user a better browsing experience based on selectable criteria such as language), and analytics cookies (which allow statistical analysis about the number of users and, in general, the use of the site).

Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are generally used to store the user’s choices during navigation and allow the sending of ad hoc content (usually advertisements), i.e., tailored based on the user’s previous choices.

There is also a further distinction between first-party cookies (sent directly by the site and managed by the Data Controller) and third-party cookies (sent by third-party sites, external to the one being navigated).

Place of processing: Ireland - Privacy Policy

The user can choose to accept or reject these cookies. Refusing the use of profiling cookies does not compromise the use of technical cookies. The user can change their choice at any time as follows:

DATA TRANSFER

The Data Controller, when selecting third parties to rely on, exclusively engages service providers that offer adequate security measures, ensuring compliance with the standards set by European legislation on Personal Data Processing (EU Reg. 679/2016 or GDPR). However, the aforementioned profiling cookies, useful for implementing site functions and ensuring an optimal user experience, might involve the transfer of certain data to servers located outside the European Union. In such cases, despite implementing all possible security measures, the Data Controller cannot guarantee with absolute certainty the correct and respectful treatment of such data by third parties located outside the European Union.

INFORMATION SECURITY

Specific security measures are observed to prevent so-called “data breaches,” i.e., data loss, unlawful use, or unauthorized access to the data. However, the Data Controller is not responsible for any data breaches that may occur during the sending of communications via email/webmail, which may transit through different nations before reaching the recipients.

USER RIGHTS

Users can exercise their rights under Article 15 and following of EU Regulation No. 679/2016 at any time. Users can request the Data Controller access to their personal data and related information; the correction of inaccurate data or the integration of incomplete data; the deletion or restriction of personal data processing concerning them; object to the processing of personal data at any time in the presence of specific situations concerning them; withdraw consent at any time, limited to cases where the processing is based on consent: processing based on consent and carried out before its revocation retains, however, its lawfulness.

Requests can be addressed to the Data Controller at the email address admin@italyhiddenexperiences.com.

It is also possible to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, such as the Italian Data Protection Authority (www.garanteprivacy.it).

CHANGES

This notice may be unilaterally modified by the Data Controller. In the relevant section of the site, users will always be able to view the most updated version.
