This page describes the ways in which your personal information is received and collected and how it is used by www.fkgroup.com
For this purpose, cookies are used, as to say text files to facilitate user navigation.
1) What are cookies?
Cookies are text files that visited sites send to the user’s browser and are stored to be retransmitted to the site at the next visit.
2) What are cookies for?
Cookies can be used to monitor sessions, to authenticate a user so that he can access a site without typing a name and password each time, and storing his preferences.
3) What are technical cookies?
So-called technical cookies are used for navigation and to facilitate access and use of the site by the user. Technical cookies are essential, for example, to access Google or Facebook without having to log in to all sessions. They are also in very delicate transactions such as home banking or credit card payments or through other systems.
4) Analytics cookies are technical cookies?
In other words, cookies that are placed in the browser and retransmitted through Google Analytics or the Blogger or Similar Stats service are technical cookies? The Guarantor has stated that these cookies can only be considered technical only if “they are used to optimize the site directly from the site owner, who will collect aggregated information about the number of users and how they visit the site. Under these conditions, cookies analytics apply the same rules, as for information and consent provided, for technical cookies.”
5) What are profiling cookies?
They are cookies used to trace the user’s navigation to create profiles on his likes, preferences, interests, and even researches. You will surely have seen banner ads for a product that you just searched on the internet a little sooner. The reason is precisely in profiling your interests, and the servers that are targeted to you by the cookies have shown you the most relevant ads.
6) Do you need user’s consent for installing cookies on his system?
For technical cookies installation, no consent is required, while profiling cookies may only be installed on the user terminal after the user has given consent and has been informed in a simplified manner.
7) How can webmasters ask for consensus?
The Guarantor for Privacy has determined that when a user accesses a website, a banner should appear containing brief information, a request for consent, and a link for more extensive information such as that visible on this page about what are the profiling cookies and how they are used on the site in question.
8) How should the banner be created?
The banner must be conceived to hide a portion of the page content and specify that the site also uses third-parties profiling cookies. The banner must be able to be deleted only with an active action by the user for example with a click.
9) What should the banner contain?
The banner must contain the brief information, the extended disclosure link, and the button to give consent to the use of profiling cookies.
10) How to keep cookies’ consent duly recorded?
You may use a technical cookie that takes into account the user’s consent so that he does not have to express his consent again in a subsequent visit to the site.
11) Is consent to using cookies only with the banner?
No. Other systems can be used if the identified system has the same requirements. Banner usage is not required for sites that only use technical cookies.
12) What should you enter on the most extensive information page?
The characteristics of cookies installed by third parties must be illustrated. You also need to tell the user how to surf the site without tracing his preferences with the ability to navigate in incognito and delete individual cookies.
13) Who is required to inform the Guarantor using profiling cookies?
The site owner has such a burden. If he only uses third-parties profiling cookies on his site, he does not need to inform the Guarantor but has to indicate what these third-parties cookies are and to provide information links.
14) When does this legislation come into force?
The Guarantor has given a year to settle the matter expiring on June 2nd , 2015.
