AB will carry out the treatment:

– with reference to letter a) above, because it is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations; to fulfil legal obligations, to which AB is subject (e.g. accounting obligations, remuneration, social security, anti-terrorism controls); because the treatment is necessary to pursue a legitimate interest (e.g. anti-money laundering audits, use of video surveillance tools to protect corporate assets, fraud prevention, protection of corporate strategic interests and related business relationships).

Summary information on the other rights of the interested party.

The GDPR grants the interested party a series of rights that according to the Transparency Guidelines WP 260 it is mandatory to summarize in their main content within the disclosure. These rights are summarized and summarized below:

Right of access (to your personal data only): Right to obtain from the data controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data relating to the data subject are being processed and, if so, to obtain access to the personal data and to be informed of the purposes of the processing; the categories of personal data concerned; the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be communicated, in particular if they are recipients from third countries or international organizations; where possible, the period of retention of the personal data envisaged or, if this is not possible, the criteria used to determine that period; where the data have not been collected from the data subject, the right to receive all available information on their source; the right to receive information on the existence of an automated decision-making process, including profiling and significant information on the logic used and the importance and expected consequences of such processing for the data subject.

Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to obtain the integration of incomplete personal data, including by providing a supplementary statement. The data controller shall inform each of the recipients to whom the personal data have been transmitted of any rectification, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. The data controller shall inform the data subject of such recipients if the data subject so requests.

Right to cancellation: the interested party has the right to obtain from the data controller the cancellation of personal data concerning him/her without unjustified delay (and where the specific reasons of the art. 17 paragraph 3 of the GDPR which, on the contrary, relieves the data controller from the obligation to cancel) if the personal data are no longer necessary with respect to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; or if the data subject revokes the consent and there is no other legal basis for processing; or if the data subject opposes processing for marketing or profiling purposes, including by revoking consent; if the personal data have been processed unlawfully or concern information collected from minors, in violation of art. 8 of GDPR.

This Cookie Policy is related to the website (“Site”) managed and operated by ART BACKERS S.R.L.Via Carloforte, 60 – 09123, Cagliari – P.Iva: IT03658740927.

Definition of “cookie”.

Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser, e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera…) information to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or afterwards, even after days (persistent cookies).

Cookies are stored, according to the user’s preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, such as web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behavior and use of services.
A cookie cannot recall any other data from the user’s hard drive or transmit computer viruses or acquire email addresses. Each cookie is unique to the user’s web browser. Some of the functions of cookies may be delegated to other technologies.

The term ‘cookies’ refers to cookies and all similar technologies.
Depending on the characteristics and use of cookies, various types of cookies can be distinguished:
Technical cookies strictly necessary. These are cookies that are indispensable for the correct functioning of a website and are used to manage various services linked to websites (such as a login or access to reserved functions on the sites). The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the working session or they can take advantage of a longer stay in order to remember the visitor’s choices. The deactivation of strictly necessary cookies may compromise the experience of use and navigation of the website.
Analytics and performance cookies. Cookies are cookies used to collect and analyze traffic and use of a website anonymously. These cookies, while not identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to log in at different times. They also make it possible to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality and will be dealt with in detail later.

Profiling cookies (not operational on this Site). These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or otherwise) your preferences and improve your browsing experience. For more information on these cookies that are not used by the Website, please visit the appropriate section on the website

Purpose of the treatment and purposes of technical session cookies.

The cookies used on the Site have the sole purpose of performing computer authentication or monitoring sessions and storing specific technical information regarding users accessing the servers of the Data Controller that manages the Site. From this point of view, some operations on the Site could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in such cases are therefore technically necessary. By way of example, access to any reserved areas of the Site and the activities that can be carried out there would be much more complex to carry out and less secure without the presence of cookies that allow the user to be identified and maintain their identification during the session.
The “technical” cookies may also be used without the consent of the interested party. Among other things, the same European body that brings together all the Privacy Authorities of the various Member States (the so-called “Article 29” Group) has clarified in Opinion 4/2012 (WP194) entitled “Exemption from consent for the use of cookies” that they are cookies for which it is not necessary to obtain the prior and informed consent of the user:
1. cookies with data compiled by the user (session identifier), the duration of a session or persistent cookies limited to a few hours in some cases;
2. cookies for authentication, used for the purposes of authenticated services, the duration of a session;
user-centered security cookies, used to identify abuses of authentication, for a limited persistent duration;
4. session cookies for multimedia players, such as cookies for “flash” players, for the duration of a session;
5. session cookies for load balancing, for the duration of a session;
6. persistent cookies for customizing the user interface, for the duration of a session (or a little more);
7. cookies for sharing content through third-party social plug-ins, for members of a social network who have logged in.

The Data Controller therefore informs that only technical cookies (such as those listed above) necessary to navigate within the Site are operational on the Site as they allow essential functions such as authentication, validation, management of a browsing session and fraud prevention and allow, for example: to identify whether the user has regularly accessed areas of the Site that require prior authentication or user validation and management of sessions relating to the various services and applications or the storage of data for access in secure mode or control and fraud prevention functions.
For maximum transparency, we list below a series of technical cookies and specific operational cases on the Site:
– cookies implanted in the terminal of the user/contractor directly (which will not be used for further purposes) such as session cookies used to “fill the cart” in online reservations on the Site, authentication cookies, cookies for multimedia content such as flash player that do not exceed the duration of the session, customization cookies (for example, for the choice of navigation language, recall ID and password complete with the first few characters, etc.);
– cookies used to statistically analyze accesses/visits to the site (so-called “analytics” cookies) which pursue exclusively statistical purposes (and not also for profiling or marketing) and collect information in aggregate form without the possibility of tracing back the identification of the individual user. In these cases, since current legislation prescribes that for analytics cookies, the interested party is provided with a clear and adequate indication of the simple ways to oppose (opt-out) their installation (including any mechanisms of anonymisation of the cookies themselves), we specify that it is possible to deactivate analytics cookies as follows: open your browser, select the settings menu, click on the internet options, open the privacy tab and choose the desired level of cookie blocking. If you want to delete cookies already stored in memory, simply open the security card and delete the history by checking the box “delete cookies”.

Third Party Cookies

By visiting a website you may receive cookies from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”) that may reside in Italy or abroad.
An example on most websites is the presence of YouTube videos, Google API, use of Google Maps, and the use of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page visited generated directly from these sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks in order to increase the visitor’s user experience.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which please refer. In order to ensure greater transparency and convenience, below are the web addresses of the various information and methods for the management of cookies, specifying that the Data Controller has no responsibility for the operation of third party cookies on this Site. –

Analytics Cookies

The Site uses the Google Analytics service but it is planned to make the IPs anonymous with the tools offered by Google. Please see Google’s Cookie Policy for Google Analytics at the following link and learn more about how Google – third party – uses the data of its users at

As clarified by the General Provision of the Privacy Guarantor on cookies of 8 May 2014, cookies analytics are assimilated to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself: these are exactly the functions and purposes of the processing on this Site.
However, you can still opt-out by visiting the website by performing the opt-out, you can also deny consent and block third-party cookies through plugins for browsers, looking on Google “block and delete third-party cookies” there are many guides that differ depending on the operating system and browser used.

Responsibility for the operation of Third Party Cookies.

In this regard, reference is made to the provisions of the General Provision of the Privacy Guarantor on Cookies of 8 May 2014: “There are many reasons why it is not possible for the publisher to provide the information and acquire consent to the installation of cookies on its site even for those installed by “third parties”. First of all, the publisher should always have the tools and the economic-legal capacity to take charge of the fulfilments of the third parties and should therefore also be able to verify from time to time the correspondence between what is declared by the third parties and the purposes actually pursued by them with the use of cookies. This is made very difficult by the fact that the publisher often does not directly know all the third parties that install cookies through its website and, therefore, not even the logic behind their processing. In addition, it is not uncommon for the publisher and third parties to come between themselves in the role of dealers, making it very complex for the publisher to control the activities of all parties involved. Third party cookies may, over time, be modified by third party suppliers and it would be impractical to ask publishers to keep track of these subsequent changes”.

As indicated by the Privacy Guarantor, this Site does not have the ability to control third party cookies if it uses third party services (YouTube, Google Maps, “social buttons”) for which only third parties are responsible. In addition, the user may delete and block the operation of cookies at any time by using plugins for the browser and changing the settings as indicated in the various manuals contained in the browser.

Obligatory or optional consent for the operation of cookies that do not pursue marketing purposes.
It is not obligatory to acquire consent to the operation of technical cookies only or third party or analytical cookies similar to technical cookies. Their deactivation and/or denial of their operation will result in the impossibility of correct navigation on the Site and/or the impossibility of using the services, pages, functions or content available therein.
