Obligation to adapt

January 1, 2023
Regulation No.15/2022 for
Environmental labeling goes into effect.

What changes?

It will be compulsory to make explicit useful information to guide the consumer to proper recycling, using the appropriate chart in accordance with the law.

Space issues on product packaging

Communicating waste collection information in the correct manner becomes problematic for those who manufacture small products, having to integrate a table into labels or packaging that are very often crowded with information, sacrificing readability.
But even for those who have enough space on their products, integrating the recycling table is detrimental in terms of product design and aesthetics, making it unattractive to the end customer or impacting communication and marketing choices made previously.

> Types of data processed

- Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, in the course of their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the user's operating system and computer environment.

This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information about the use of the site and to check its correct operation and is deleted immediately after processing.

The data could be used to ascertain liability in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site: except for this eventuality, at present web contact data do not persist for more than seven days.

Data voluntarily provided by the user. The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of personal data by the user to the contacts on this site involves the subsequent acquisition of the data provided by the sender, necessary for the provision of the requested service.

Specific summary disclosures will be progressively reported or displayed on pages of the site set up for particular on-demand services. This data will be processed by the Owner mainly by computer, in order to fulfill the user's request.

> Cookies

Cookies are small text files containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and the user's terminal (usually the browser).

They are mainly used for the purpose of making websites work and operate more efficiently, as well as for the purpose of providing information to the owners of the website itself.

Cookies can be either session or persistent.

Session cookies remain stored in the terminal for a short period of time and are deleted as soon as the user closes the browser. Their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable secure and efficient exploration of the site.

Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain stored in the user's terminal until a predetermined expiration date.

These, since they are not deleted directly when the browser is closed, allow to remember the choices made by the user on its site as well as to collect information about the pages of the site visited by the user, the frequency with which the site is visited and to identify the navigation path of users, in order to improve the experience on this site.

Cookies, whether session or persistent, can finally be First Party or Third Party depending on whether the party installing the cookies on the user's terminal is the same operator of the site the user is visiting (we will then speak of First Party cookies) or a different party (we will then speak of Third Party cookies).
