1) What are cookies and what are they used for

Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on the User’s device by the websites they visit. The information is stored and the cookies are then sent back to the same website on the User’s next visit (so-called “first party cookies”). While browsing, the User may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers (so-called “third party cookies”); this is because the Websites may contain some elements such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the page requested is located. In other words, these cookies are set by a website other than the one the User is currently visiting.

Cookies can have a duration limited to a single browsing session (so-called “session cookies”) and, in this case, are automatically disabled when the User closes the browser; or they may have a predetermined expiry date and, in this case, they will remain stored and active on the User’s hard disk until said expiry date, continuing to collect information during different browsing sessions on the browser (so-called “permanent cookies”).

Cookies are used for various functions. Some are needed to allow the User to browse the Site and to take advantage of its functions (so-called “technical cookies”). Others are used to obtain statistical information, in aggregate and non-aggregate form, on the number of users who access the Site and on how the Site is used (so-called “monitoring or analytical cookies”). Lastly, other cookies are used to track a consumer profile of the User and to show the User advertisements on the Site that may be of interest to them, as they are consistent with their tastes and habits (so-called “profiling cookies”). To learn more about these different categories of cookies, continue reading this policy. Find out how they work and what they are for.

2) First party technical and analytical cookies

These cookies are installed directly by the Site visited. Technical cookies are needed to navigate or provide a service requested by the user, they are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner of the website. Without the use of these cookies, some operations may not be able to be executed or may be harder and/or less secure, such as activities where cookies are essential in order to perform and maintain the identification of the user within the session.

Analytical cookies are necessary for collecting information and statistics from the User and are used to evaluate the browsing experience. Without the use of these cookies, the site owner will not be able to collect information on what visitors view and what they are interested in. This helps to improve future browsing experiences.

5) Profiling cookies

The use of these cookies requires prior acquisition of the user’s consent through the banner made visible to users when they visit the Site for the first time.
