With reference to the directive “Identification of simplified procedures for information on and acquisition of consent to the use of cookies – May 8, 2014” (published in the Official Gazette no. 126 of June 3, 2014), the characteristics and purposes of the cookies installed are described in a specific, analytical manner, also indicating how to accept or refuse individual cookies.
While navigating this website, the user may receive both cookies sent directly from the website and managed by MedCaffè Srl and cookies sent by different websites or web servers managed by third parties (third party cookies).

Cookies are small text strings that websites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the user’s next visit. While navigating a site, the user may also receive cookies on their terminal that are sent by different websites or servers (so-called “third party”), on which there may be some elements (e.g., images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages in other domains) on the site the user is visiting.

Cookies, usually found in the user’s browser in very large numbers and at times persistent in time, are used for different purposes: browsing device authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information about specific configurations regarding users who access the server, etc.

In order to achieve proper regulation of these devices, it is necessary to distinguish them, as there are no technical characteristics that differentiate one from another on the basis of the objectives pursued by those who use them. Therefore, the legislator, in the implementation of the provisions laid down in Directive 2009/136/EC, has stated the obligation to acquire prior informed consent of the users to install cookies for purposes other than those purely technical (cf. art. 1, paragraph 5a) of the legislative decree number 69. May 28, 2012 modifying article 122 of the Legal Code.

Nearly all websites use cookies.
Cookies help us to store certain information and preferences of the users of our website: none of the information collected on our website identifies the user personally. The user is free to refuse or limit the use of cookies by modifying the browser settings (see below). Be aware that this may slow down or prevent access to all or part of the website.

Third Party Cookies

I cookie di terze parti non sono gestiti direttamente da MedCaffè Srl, ma sono installati attraverso il sito cafferoko.com da società terze che si occupano di profilazione on line. Per offrire ai lettori la possibilità di condividere gli articoli presenti su cafferoko.com è attivo il servizio addthis.com che permette di dialogare con i social button dei singoli social network.

I widget dei social network sono quei particolari “pulsanti” o “blocchi” presenti sul sito che raffigurano le icone di social network (esempio, Facebook e Twitter) e consentono agli utenti che stanno navigando di interagire con un “click” direttamente con le piattaforme social. Si riportano i link ove l’utente può prendere visione dell’informativa privacy relativa alla gestione dei dati da parte dei social cui i pulsanti e le widget rinviano. Nessuna informazione viene condivisa dal sito in cui il widget è incorporato.

Per maggiori informazioni, anche sulla disattivazione di tali cookie, si consiglia di consultare i seguenti link:
