Cookies are text threads that are placed and stored on the user's terminal device by the websites visited by the user (known as "publishers" or "first parties") or by different websites or web servers (known as "third parties"), so that they can be sent back to the same websites on the next visit.
Cookies are used for different purposes: performing computer authentications, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, storing preferences, or to facilitate the use of online content, such as keeping track of items in a shopping cart as well as information for filling out a computer form, etc.; but they can also be used to profile users, i.e. to "observe" their behaviour, for example in order to send targeted advertising, measure the effectiveness of the advertising message and adopt consequent commercial strategies. This is referred to as a profiling cookie.
The same result can also be achieved by means of other tracking tools or techniques, including fingerprinting.
Technical cookies are cookies that serve to navigate or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for any other purpose and are normally installed directly by the website owner.
Without the use of these cookies, certain operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as home banking activities (viewing account statements, bank transfers, paying bills, etc.), for which cookies, which allow the user to be identified and remembered during the session, are essential.

Cookies used on our website
These are used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or when strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service" (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the privacy code). The technical cookies used by the royalgroup.com website are divided into:
- navigation or session cookies: necessary for normal navigation and use of the website
- functionality cookies: these allow the user to navigate according to a number of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the site navigation experience.

Analytics cookies are not technical cookies. The Supervisor (cf. provision of 8 May 2014 and Guidelines on cookies and other tracking tools of 10 June 2021) however, specified that they can be assimilated to technical cookies if they are used for site optimisation purposes directly by the owner of the site itself, who may collect statistical information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site.
If, on the other hand, the processing of these statistical analyses is entrusted to third parties, users' data must be minimised in advance and cannot be combined with other elaborations or transmitted to other third parties. Under these conditions, the same rules on information and consent apply to analytics cookies as to technical cookies.
As an exception, the first party that does this on its own and the third party acting on behalf of the first party are allowed to produce statistics with data relating to several domains, websites or apps that can be traced back to the same owner or business group.
The cookies listed below are third party cookies generated and read by the relevant external party in connection with third party options on our website.
For more information about such cookies and how the information collected by the third party is used, please use the links below or contact the relevant third party:
Is user consent required for the application of cookies on their terminal equipment?
It depends on the purposes for which the cookies are used and, therefore, whether they are "technical" or "profiling" cookies.
For the installation of technical and analytics cookies, the users' consent is not required, while it is always necessary to provide information (art. 13 of EU Regulation 2016/679).
Profiling cookies or other tracking tools, on the other hand, may only be used if the user has given consent after being informed by simplified means.
As established by the Supervisor in the provision of 8 May 2014 and restated in the Guidelines for cookies and other tracking tools of 10 June 2021, the information should be set up on several levels and may also be made on several channels, adopting all appropriate measures to make it accessible without discrimination to subjects with disabilities.
Therefore, since this site mainly deals with technical cookies, consent is not required.
In order to keep track of the consent acquired, the owner of the site may use a specific technical cookie, a system that is not particularly invasive and which does not in turn require further consent, as well as other methods that allow the records of the data subject's choices to be kept up to date.
It remains possible for the user to easily change his options at any time. In this regard, it is good practice to adopt a technical device (such as an icon or a graphic sign) indicating at any time the status of the consents previously given by the user.
The mere scrolling of the page cursor is not in itself a suitable act for expressing informed consent.
Scrolling could, if anything, constitute one of the components of a more articulated process enabling the generation of an IT event capable of expressing a recordable, documentable and unambiguous choice.
