General Statement on Cookies


This Cookie Policy has been drafted and customized specifically for the website owned by Qura S.r.l. with registered office in Mirandola, via di Mezzo 23, 41037, (MO), Tax Code and VAT No. IT03663360364, certified email, as Data Controller pursuant to Art. 13 of EU Regulation 2016/679. 

The Data Controller has appointed a Data Protection Officer who can be contacted at the email address 

This Policy was drafted on the basis of the provision of the Data Protection Authority No. 229 of May 8, 2014 “Identification of the simplified procedures for the policy and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies” and of the provision No. 231 of June 10, 2021 “Cookie guidelines and other tracking tools” issued by the same Authority. It complements and updates other policies already present on the website and/or in combination with which it provides all the elements required by Art. 13 of EU Regulation 2016/679. 

Important notice

We inform all third parties that the use of this policy, or even only some parts of it, on other websites in reference to which it would certainly be irrelevant and/or incorrect and/or inconsistent, may result in the imposition of heavy sanctions by the Data Protection Authority.

What are cookies?

In practical and non-technical terms, a cookie can be considered a tracking system consisting of a small file, stored by the website in the user’s device while browsing, used with the aim of saving the preferences expressed when browsing and improving the performance of the website, optimizing the browsing experience.

In technical terms, cookies are defined as text strings (generally formed by the combination of letters and numbers) that websites (so-called first parties) visited by the user or different websites/web servers (so-called third parties) place and store, directly and/or indirectly within a terminal device (PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) that is available to the user. Internet browsing or device operation servers may store cookies and then transmit them back to the same websites that generated them, in view of a subsequent visit by the same user. Specifically, these tracking tools allow the website to recognize a particular device or browser.

Types of cookies and their purposes

Cookies can be classified into:

  • Technical cookies used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the service provider of an information company to supply a service explicitly requested by a subscriber or a user, as provided for in Article 122 paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code.  These types of cookies do not require the acquisition of consent by the user but must be indicated in the cookie policy.
  • Profiling cookies used to trace back to specific, identified or identifiable subjects specific actions or behavioral patterns in order to allow the Data Controller to modulate the provision of the service in a more personalized way and send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during navigation.  

Applicable regulations

For the use of cookies and other technical tracking tools, the Data Controller is subject only to the obligation to provide specific information to Data Subjects.  With regard to cookies and other tracking tools for purposes other than technical ones, the use is allowed only after acquiring the user’s informed consent, which must be expressed by an unequivocal act pursuant to Recital 32. 

Consent acquisition 

The Data Controller ensures the consent acquisition by showing a banner when the user first accesses the website.

The banner contains:

  • an X in the upper right-hand corner that means lack of consent by the user; 
  • a short statement declaring that the website uses technical cookies and, only after acquiring the user’s consent, also profiling cookies; 
  • a link to the privacy policy and cookie policy; 
  • a prompt through which the users express their consent; 
  • a link to an area dedicated to the choice and customization of cookies, in which the users can freely give their consent with respect to the features, providers and specific cookies that they intend to accept; 

If the user does not consent to the use of cookies and other tracking tools and has chosen to give consent only for the use of certain cookies, the choice is recorded and no longer requested, except in the following cases or when:

  • one or more conditions of the processing significantly change;
  • it is impossible for the website operator to know whether a cookie has already been stored in the device;
  • at least 6 months have elapsed since the banner was last shown.

Legal basis of the provision

For technical cookies, the legal basis of the provision is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller, pursuant to Art. 6 lett. f) GDPR, as these cookies are necessary for the operation of the website. For non-technical cookies, the legal basis of the provision is the consent expressly given by the user and always revocable pursuant to Art. 6 lett. a) GDPR.

Browser settings  

We also inform you that the users can freely configure their privacy parameters in relation to the installation and use of cookies, at any time directly through their browser, following the relevant instructions.

The following links explain how to access cookie settings in various browsers:

In particular, the users can set the so-called “private browsing”, by which their browsing program stops, saving the history of the websites visited, any entered passwords, cookies and other information about the visited pages.

If the user decides to deactivate all cookies (also the technical ones), the quality and speed of the services offered by this website could worsen drastically and it could become impossible to access some sections of the website itself.

Data Subjects’ rights 

The individuals to whom the personal data refer have the right to request access to, rectification and deletion of the data or restriction of the processing at any time. They also have the right to object to data processing, as well as the right to data portability and the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority
