Information on cookies
What are Cookies?
Cookies are data packages stored on the device of users who visit a website and which generate certain information that can be read by the server that installed them.
In addition to Cookies, pixels are also used. These are small pieces of code embedded in the Websites and used for different purposes.
For example, Cookies are used:
- To allow users to browse in a restricted access area, once they have entered their username and password.
- To facilitate online purchasing processes (Cookies record each product included in the shopping basket).
- To record user preferences (language, font, etc.).
- To obtain information on pages visited and to offer advertising.
What types of Cookie are installed on accessing our Websites?
The Websites use first-party and third-party Cookies. First-party Cookies are those installed by our own domain and are not managed by third parties. Conversely, third-party Cookies are not managed directly by us (although in some cases they are downloaded from our domain).
We have classified the Cookies used on the Websites into the following groups based on their purpose:
1. Necessary cookies
Necessary cookies allow users to navigate through a webpage, platform or application and make use of the various options or services they provide, for example, controlling data communication and traffic, identifying a session, accessing restricted areas, recording the items in an order, processing the purchase of an order, requesting to register for or participate in an event, using security elements during browsing, storing content for video or sound broadcasting or sharing content on social networks.
2. Preference cookies
Preference cookies enable a website to remember information so that users can access the service with certain characteristics that differentiate their experience from that of other users.
3. Statistic cookies
Statistic cookies allow us to monitor the behaviour of the Websites’ users. For example, they help us to identify the most popular sections of our Websites, to quantify the number of visits, to identify the pages visited and determine the time spent on each page, and to locate the country of origin.
4. Marketing cookies
Marketing cookies store information on user behaviour obtained by tracking users’ browsing habits. This allows a specific user profile to be created, with advertising shown to the user on the basis of this profile.
