Data provided voluntarily by the user

The Positano & Vacanze website has a purely editorial and presentation of the accommodation and its services, therefore the interactive features with the users browsing the site are limited to the request for information and / or contacts.

The personal data collected will be processed pursuant to art. 6 of EU Regulation 2016/679 exclusively for the following purposes:

Navigation data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the site, the addresses in the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) notation of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (success, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s computer environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.

Data protection

The Positano Vacanze e Turismo undertakes to protect the personal data of its users by preparing and adopting appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the security of the user’s personal data; however, remember that no system is ever completely safe.

In particular:

  • We test our practices for data acquisition, storage and processing, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to systems;
  • We use cryptographic technologies, where appropriate;
  • We use password protection measures, where appropriate;
  • We limit access to personal data only to employees and collaborators who need to access such data in order to process them on our behalf and under strict contractual confidentiality obligations.

However, these measures do not exempt the user from taking adequate measures to keep personal data secure, in particular by avoiding the use of trivial user IDs or passwords, by not revealing personal passwords or by allowing others access to their account and Personal data, and taking any other applicable security measures.

COOKIES POLICY ~ Extended information

The Positano Vacanze e Turismo website uses cookies and / or similar technologies to guarantee the correct functioning of the procedures and a better experience in the use of online applications. On this page we provide detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, on how they are used by Positano Vacanze e Turismo and on how to manage them (if you consent to their use or prevent it), in compliance with recent Italian and European legislation on obligations information and protection of website users. Specifically, we inform all our visitors that the site does not use tracking or profiling cookies, but only those that are strictly necessary for the functioning and structured analysis of performance and traffic.


Cookies are simple information that is transferred from the website and saved on the hard disk of the user's computer and are small text files that allow websites to store some data to make them accessible to a subsequent access by the user. Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behavior and use of services. In the following of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term "cookies".

Types of cookies

Based on the origin, cookies are divided into two categories:
  • proprietary cookies, which are created, deleted and modified directly from the visited site.
  • third-party cookies, which are created by other sites that own content, such as ads, images, social buttons or other services, displayed on the web page of the site you are visiting.
On the other hand, based on their duration, cookies can be classified as follows:
  • temporary cookies (for example session cookies) that are automatically deleted when the browser is closed.
  • permanent cookies that remain available until they are explicitly deleted by the user or until their natural expiry, established by the site itself.
Most sites use cookies because they are among the technical tools commonly used on the web that can improve navigation and user experience while also allowing you to offer personalized services (for example, avoiding the need to log in every time, remember the last application used, keep the products in the shopping cart, show important contents for the user, remember that a message has already been displayed, etc.). These are also called technical cookies and do not fall within the scope of data processing governed by the GDPR as they do not contain personal data, nor identifiers associated with personal data or other information that identify the user, and their use is strictly functional provision of services by the site. In any case, cookies can be read or modified only by the site that created them and can not be used to access any other user data through the browser nor can they transmit computer viruses as they are not software programs, but simple information text that can not possibly damage the computer. Most browsers accept cookies automatically and yet the user can disable cookies directly from their browser. It is important to know however that, based on the quality of the services offered by the site, the deactivation of cookies may lead to the user being unable to use all or some of the online features and in some cases access to the site itself.

Cookies on our site

Like most websites, our site also uses cookies to improve the user experience, to make it easier to use our applications and to provide advanced features that would not be possible without the use of cookies. Our site uses proprietary cookies and third-party cookies.

Proprietary cookies

SuPositano Vacanze e Turismo we use only "technical cookies" both temporary and permanent.

Temporary technical cookies

Temporary cookies include those that allow work sessions to work and end when the browser is closed. Sessions are essential to authenticate to the site by registered users or to use those applications that require data entry in multiple steps. They are also useful not to lose the data entered in the applications in case the user changes pages or in the integration between the applications themselves.

Permanent technical cookies

Our site also manages several permanent cookies with different deadlines based on their functionality. Below are the main features of our site that use technical cookies:
  • determine if a user visits the site for the first time and the date of the last visit (this cookie is based on an anonymous numeric identifier from which it is not possible to trace the IP address)
  • guarantee automatic access to the site by registered users through the "remember" function
  • to display messages and communications relating to new services, new publications or otherwise no more than once
  • memorize the type of browser (desktop, tablet or smartphone)
  • remember which side navigation bar menus have been opened or closed
  • remember the user's preference for cookies based on this information
  • other minor uses that we leave out for brevity

Duration of cookies

Session cookies remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies survive the closing of the browser and are also available in subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited. However, by browsing the pages of the Positano Vacanze e Turismo website you can interact with websites managed by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.

Third-party cookies

When you visit a website you can receive cookies both from the site you are visiting ("proprietary cookies"), and from sites managed by other organizations (called "third parties").

Our site uses only "native" cookies of the various browsers (text type information) and does not use the so-called "Flash Cookies" (a different type of cross-browser cookies) but some third-party sites may use this technology that requires the presence of the Adobe Flash plugin in the browser.

On our website there are the so-called social plugins for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube etc. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned social sites and integrated into the page of the host site which is limited in this case to the simple sending of cookies on the user’s terminal, without managing the operations and contents, which therefore remain a total load of third parties. The most common use of social plugins is to integrate and share site content on social networks.

The management of information collected by third parties is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the following are the web addresses of the various information and how to manage cookies:

Facebook information:
Facebook (settings): accedere al proprio account. Sezione privacy.

Cookie management

The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser. Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies. The disabling of "third-party" cookies does not affect the navigability in any way.
