Type of data processed

1) Data acquired in normal business management

Data qualified as personal by law also acquired verbally, directly or through third parties, to achieve effective management of business relationships.

The computer systems used to operate the site acquire, in normal operation, some data that is then transmitted implicitly in the use of Internet communication protocols. This may include information on the geographic area from which you are browsing, on the device used, on the type of browser and/or on user behaviour during the session.

Lubrimetal acquires such data and processes it exclusively to identify the sender and respond to his requests.

Cookie Policy

General information about cookies

Cookies are short text files (letters and/or numbers)which allow the web server to store on the client (the user’s Internet browser) information to be reused during the visit of the website (session cookies) or later, also after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

Cookies do not record the user’s personal information and any identifiable information is not stored. If you want to disable the use of cookies, you need to customize the settings of your browser. You can set cookie deletion or trigger an alert when cookies are saved on your computer. To proceed without changing the cookie storage rules, simply continue browsing.

Depending on their duration, they differentiate between session cookies (i.e. temporary cookies, automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. those that remain stored on the terminal until their expiration or cancellation by the user).

Cookies have different purposes. They are primarily used for the transmission of communication or to provide the service requested by the user; more precisely, they allow to enable and optimize the operation of the website, perform IT authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the browsing experience of users, for example by keeping active the connection to restricted areas while browsing through the pages of the site without the need to re-enter User-Id and password and storing specific information about the users themselves (including preferences, type of browser and computer used).
The aforementioned cookies are called “technical” (for their use the user’s consent is not required), as without them some of the above operations could not be completed or would be more complex and / or less secure.

Otherwise, if cookies are used for other purposes, typically for behavioural analysis and sending personalized promotional messages (so-called “profiling” cookies) or even just to obtain, in the form of services provided by third parties, information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the site (so-called “analytics cookies”), the user’s consent is required. In fact, before sending these cookies to the terminal, in accordance with current legislation (EU Regulation and General Provision of the Guarantor of 8 May 2014), when you access the home page or other page of the site, it is immediately shown in the foreground a banner with an initial brief information on the use of cookies and on the collection of consent, which the user can lend by continuing the navigation by selecting an element under the banner or by closing the banner itself.

In any case, cookies can be read or modified only by the website that generated them; they cannot be used to retrieve any data from the user’s terminal and cannot transmit computer viruses.
