Processing of data useful for navigation purposes
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified interested parties, but by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

Among the information that may be collected are IP addresses, the type of browser or operating system used, URI (uniform resource identifier) notation addresses, the domain name and addresses of the websites from which the access or exit (referring/exit pages) was made, the time the request was made to the server, the method used and information on the response obtained, further information on the user's navigation on the site (see also the section on cookies) and other parameters relating to the user's operating system and computer environment.

This same data could also be used to identify and ascertain responsibility in the event of any computer crimes against the site.


Use of cookies
The following information is provided to the user in implementation of the provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data of 8 May 2014 "Identification of simplified procedures for the provision of information and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies".


WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings that a website can send, while you are browsing, to your device (be it a PC, a notebook, a smartphone, a tablet; they are usually stored directly on the browser used for browsing). The same website that sent them can then read and record cookies that are on the same device to obtain various types of information. Which ones? For each type of cookie there is a clearly defined role.


HOW MANY TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
There are two basic macro-categories, with different characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are generally necessary for the correct functioning of the website and to allow navigation; without them you may not be able to view pages correctly or use certain services. For example, a technical cookie is needed to keep you logged in throughout your visit to a website, or to store language settings, display settings, and so on.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:

browsing cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas)
analytics cookies, which are assimilated to technical cookies only when used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site
functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
Profiling cookies are more sophisticated! These cookies have the task of profiling the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing.


Cookies can, again, be classified as:
session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed;
persistent cookies, which - unlike session cookies - remain in the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognise the device connecting to the site, facilitating authentication operations for the user.
first-part cookies - cookies that are generated and managed directly by the operator of the website on which the user is browsing.
third-party cookies (third-part cookies), which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (by virtue, as a rule, of a contract between the owner of the website and the third party).


WHICH COOKIES DOES Riva Brioni S.r.l. USE? ?
We use technical cookies, aimed at ensuring the proper functioning of our site, without which your browsing experience would not be pleasant. To improve our site and understand which parts or elements are most appreciated by users, as a tool for anonymous and aggregate analysis, we use third-party cookies, namely Google Analytics. This cookie is not a tool that we own, so for more information you can consult the information provided by Google at the following address:

The facebook site may use certain cookies for profiling purposes through this site. For further information, please refer to the following link:

 When you access this site for the first time, a banner will appear showing a brief information on the use of these certain third-party profiling cookies. By expressing your consent or continuing to browse or accessing other elements on the site, you consent to the installation of these cookies. You can always delete them as indicated in the instructions below.

The following table shows specifically which cookies are used.
