Cookies to Manage User Databases

Pardot (Pardot LLC): Pardot is a User database management service provided by Pardot LLC. Personal Data collected: various types of data depending on what is specified in the service privacy policy.
Location of the processing: USA – Privacy Policy:


Cookies are small strings of text that visited sites send to the user’s device (usually the browser), where they are stored and re-sent to the same sites the next time the user visits. In addition to cookies, other similar tools (web beacons/web bugs, clear GIFs, and others) capable of identifying the user or their device are also subject to the provisions of the Italian Data Protection Authority.

While browsing a website, users may also receive cookies sent to their device by other websites or web servers (known as “third parties”), which may contain certain elements (e.g. images, maps, sounds, and specific links to pages in other domains) found on the website the user is visiting.

Cookies are usually found in very large numbers in users’ browsers and can sometimes remain there for long periods of time. They are used for various purposes: to run computer authentication, to monitor sessions, to save information on specific settings for users who access the server, etc. Further information on cookies can be found at

To regulate these cookies properly, it is necessary to tell them apart, as there are no technical characteristics which differentiate them from each other according to their intended uses. However, steps in this direction have been taken by the legislator who, by implementing the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136/EC, has established the obligation to acquire informed, prior consent from users to the installation of cookies used for purposes which are not purely technical (see Article 1, paragraph 5, letter a) of Ital. Legislative Decree No. 69 of 28 May 2012, which amended Article 122 of the Code).

Cookies to Manage User Databases

This type of service enables the Data Controller to build user profiles, starting from an e-mail address, a name or any other information the User provides to CIRFOOD, and to track the User’s activities via statistical functions. This Personal Data could also be cross-referenced with publicly available information on the User (e.g. profiles on social networks) and used to build private profiles the Data Controller can view and use to improve CIRFOOD.

Some of these services could also allow programmed e-mails to be sent to the User, such as e-mails based on specific actions taken at CIRFOOD.
