Cookie Policy

The information below, regarding the use of cookies on this website, is provided to the user/browser in compliance with the provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data on “Cookie guidelines and other tracking tools” of June 10, 2021 (Published in the Official Gazette No. 163 of July 9, 2021) and in accordance with article 13 of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation No. 679/2016).

This information is prepared and updated by DESIGN CLUB REAL ESTATE SRL VAT 03662051204, headquartered at Via Castiglione n. 6, Bologna (Bo) 40124, email: info@designclubcollection.com, as the data controller connected to it.

At the same contacts, you can exercise the rights provided by the GDPR for the data subject (articles 15 to 21, such as access, deletion, updating, rectification, integration, etc.).



Cookies are usually text strings that websites (so-called Publishers or “first parties”) visited by the user or different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”) place and store – directly, in the case of publishers, and indirectly, that is, through these, in the case of “third parties” – inside a terminal device available to the user.

The terminals referred to may include, for example, a computer, a tablet, a smartphone, or any other device capable of storing information. Already today, and even more so in the future, among them, one must include the so-called IoT (Internet of Things) devices, which are designed to connect to the network and to each other to provide various services, not necessarily limited to mere communication.

Internet browsing software and the operation of these devices, such as browsers, can store cookies and then transmit them back to the sites that generated them when the same user revisits, thus remembering their previous interaction with one or more websites.

The information encoded in cookies may include personal data, such as an IP address, a username, a unique identifier, or an email address, but may also contain non-personal data, such as language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the site.

Therefore, cookies can perform important and varied functions, including session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, facilitating the use of online content, etc. They can, for example, be used to track items in an online shopping cart or information used to fill out a computer form.

Cookies, and to a large extent, other tracking tools, may have different characteristics in terms of time and can be considered based on their duration (session or permanent) or from a subjective point of view (depending on whether the publisher acts independently or on behalf of the “third party”).

The classification that responds to the rationale of the law and therefore also to the needs of personal protection is based, ultimately, on macro-categories:


  • Technical cookies, used solely to “carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (cf. Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code);
  • Profiling cookies, used to trace specific identified or identifiable individuals, specific recurring actions, or behavioral patterns in the use of offered functionalities (patterns) to group different profiles into homogeneous clusters of different sizes, so that the controller can also modulate the provision of the service in a more and more personalized way beyond what is strictly necessary for the service’s provision, and send targeted advertising messages, in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the net.
  • Tracking or “analytics” cookies. Analytics cookies are used to collect statistical information, in aggregate or not, on the number of users accessing the Site and how they visit the Site itself. The user’s consent is necessary if they are third-party analytics cookies that allow the identification of the user’s IP address.

Otherwise, when the conditions listed below are met, they can be equated with technical cookies and it will not be necessary to obtain the user’s consent (as indicated by the guidelines of June 10, 2021, by the Garante for the protection of personal data). In particular, it is required that a) cookies are used only to produce aggregate statistics and in relation to a single website or a single mobile application, b) at least a quarter of the IP address is masked, c) third parties refrain from combining these minimized analytics cookies with other processing or transmitting them to further third parties.

Cookies can also be classified as:

  • Session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browsing browser is closed (for example, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.);
  • Persistent cookies, which – unlike session cookies – remain within the device, continuing to operate even after the browser is closed and until a certain period of time elapses;
  • First-party cookies, i.e., cookies generated and managed directly by the website operator on which the user is browsing;
  • Third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by subjects other than the manager of the website on which the user is browsing (usually under a contract between the website owner and the third party).

That if the user chooses to close the banner by denying consent, the default settings that do not allow the use of cookies or other tracking tools different from technical ones will be maintained.

The user who does not intend to give consent will simply close the banner by selecting the appropriate command typically used for this purpose (an X in the upper right corner).

The user always has the possibility to revoke and/or modify in whole or in part the consent already given, and the controller cannot request to communicate their preferences again for at least 6 months following the indication of these preferences by the user.
