ITALIAN LEGISLATIVE DECREE released on May 8, 2014
(Published in the Official Gazette no. 126, June 3, 2014)
It represents the adaptation of the Italian legislation with the provisions in the European Union: the cookie law, in fact, is a measure which arose under Community Directive 2009/136/EC with the aim of curbing the spread of so-called cookie profiling and related risks to the privacy of Internet users.
The information provided is also based on the guidelines contained in Recommendation no. 2/2001, which was adopted on 17 May 2001 by the European data protection authorities within the Working Party set up under Article 29 of European Directive 95/46/EC in order to lay down minimum requirements for the collection of personal data online - especially with regard to arrangements, timing and contents of the information to be provided by data controllers to users visiting web pages for whatever purpose.
