Privacy policy in Italy is now adapted to the european union regulation

Published on:

Recently, the Council of Ministers approved seven legislative decrees for the adaptation of the domestic legislation to the European one. Among the approved decrees, there is the text of the adaptation of national legislation to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679, also known as GDPR, which last May caused many problems for several companies.

4 Flying has already updated the privacy policy based on the principle of transparency and all the other elements included in Article 13 of the GDPR. To make reading easier, the privacy policy is divided into individual sections, each of which deals with a specific topic in order to speed up the identification of the most interesting elements.

GDPR effects can already be seen: news websites have reduced the use of cookies used without users' consent.

A study by the University of Oxford's Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism analyzed more than 200 European news websites, comparing visits in April (before the GDPR) with those in July (after the GDPR). Overall, the number of third-party cookies on those websites fell by 22%, with a significant drop for advertising and marketing cookies (minus 14%) and social media (minus 9%). The number of websites hosting social media content, such as Facebook and Twitter sharing buttons, has also decreased by 7%.
