What are cookies?

This Cookie Policy contains important information on the different types of cookie (small text files) that might be installed on your devices (e.g. PC, smartphone, tablet) when you visit the website.

According to Regulation no. 2016/679 (EU) on the subject of personal data protection, cookies constitute personal data when they can be associated to a device and, therefore, to an identifiable person.


Types of cookie

There are different types of cookie, which contain different information and perform different functions (e.g. carrying out computer authentication, monitoring sessions, memorizing preferences for sending targeted advertisements, etc.). Every cookie, in turn, contains a variety of information (e.g. the name of the server from which it originates, a numeric identifier, etc.). This information may remain in the user’s device for varying periods of time – a browsing session, a few hours, several days or for longer periods.


Technical cookies Third party analytical cookies used as technical cookies Profiling cookies


Cookies used for browsing or for providing a service requested by the user. They are not used for any additional purposes. Third party analytical cookies can only be treated as technical cookies if used for purposes of website optimization by the website owner himself/herself, for collecting information in aggregate form on the number of users and how these users visit the website. Cookies used to track web browsing carried out by a user and create profiles on that user’s tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies, advertisements that correspond to the preferences expressed by the user during his/her online browsing, can be sent to the user’s computer.

Need for installation on the user’s device

Technical cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the website. Without resorting to the use of these cookies, some operations may not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure. Therefore, technical cookies are indispensable. When used as technical cookies and when anonymization measures required by the Data Protection Authority are adopted, analytical cookies are necessary in order to allow the website owner to improve the way in which the website functions and the user’s experience of the website. Profiling cookies are not strictly necessary for the website to function properly and, therefore, the user can decide whether or not to install these cookies.

User consent required?

Technical cookies do not require user consent, because they are necessary in order to ensure that the website functions properly. The user’s consent is not required, as Albergo San Vitale has activated the IP address anonymization function and uses the information in aggregate form. For the installation of profiling cookies, the user’s consent is needed, which can be expressed or withdrawn by the user.

How to express your choice regarding cookies used by the website

  • Google Analytics (Third party analytical cookies used as technical cookies)

Social network buttons and widgets

Social buttons are the “buttons” present on the website symbolizing the social network icons (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Twitter) and they allow you to interact directly with the social platforms, with a simple “click”. The social buttons present on this website are links that refer to the Lomo di Giuseppe Giovanditti accounts on the social networks illustrated. Through the use of these buttons, third party cookies are therefore not installed on the website.

However, the links where the user can view the privacy policy regarding the management of information by the Social networks that the buttons refer to are the following:
