Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy is an integral part of the Privacy Policy of CN Continental S.r.l.


A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded to ‘terminal equipment’ (such as a computer or smartphone) when the user accesses a Web site. Allows the Web site to recognize the user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions for varying periods of time as needed.

You may also manifest your options on the use of cookies on this site (specify the list of cookies used on the site by the client – Data Controller and/or the developer of the same) through the settings of your browser(s) by following the instructions provided. Users can also set up “anonymous browsing,” which allows them to browse the Internet without saving any information about the sites, the pages they visit, any passwords they enter, and other information that can be traced back to their identity.

In the course of browsing, the user may also receive “third-party” cookies on his or her terminal, that is, cookies that are sent from different sites or web servers on which certain elements (such as, for example, images or specific links to pages on other domains) may reside on the site the user is visiting.

Cookies, are used for different purposes: performing computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information about specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc. Some of the purposes of installing cookies may, in addition, require the user’s consent.

In order to arrive at a proper regulation of these devices, given that there are no technical characteristics that differentiate them from one another, it is necessary to distinguish them precisely on the basis of the purposes pursued by those who use them.

In fact, in implementation of the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136/EC, there is an obligation to acquire the prior and informed consent of users to the installation of cookies used for purposes other than purely technical ones (see Art. 1, paragraph 5, lett. a), of Leg. May 28, 2012, no. 69, which amended Art. 122 of the Code).

In line with Applicable Law, your prior consent for the use of cookies is not always required. In particular, such consent is not required for “technical cookies,” e.g., those used for the sole purpose of carrying a communication over an electronic communication network, or strictly necessary to provide a service expressly requested by the user. In other words, cookies that are indispensable the operation of a site.

On the other hand, your prior consent is required for non-anonymized “analytical” and profiling cookies, e.g., those that provide statistical analysis of the use of a website or create profiles of users to send them advertising messages in line with the preferences they have expressed while browsing.

How to check and possibly disable cookies

In case you have any doubts or concerns about the use of cookies, you can always take action to prevent them from being set and read, for example, by changing the privacy settings within the browser used on your terminal to block certain types.
The user can therefore manage cookie preferences directly within their browser and prevent – for example – third parties from installing cookies. Through the browser preferences, it is also possible to delete cookies installed in the past, including the cookie in which consent to the installation of cookies by this site is possibly saved. It is important to note that by disabling all cookies, the operation of this site may be impaired.
