How many types of cookies are there?
Cookies can be of different types:
as far as DURATION, cookies may be “session cookies” (automatically deleted when the browser is closed) or “persistent cookies” (stored until their expiry date, or until deleted by the user);
as far as ORIGIN, cookies may be “first-party cookies (sent to the browser directly by the website being visited), or “third-party cookies” (sent to the browser by websites other than the one being visited);
In terms of PURPOSE, cookies may be “technical” or “profiling”. “Technical” cookies are navigation, necessary, performance, process, or security cookies. Also functionality, preference, localisation, status session cookies are “technical”, as well as first-party or third-party statistical-analytical cookies with IP masking and without data crossing. The installation of “technical” cookies does not require the consent of the user. “Profiling” cookies are third-party statistic-analytical cookies without IP masking and without data crossing, as well as advertising, tracking or conversion cookies. Non-technical cookies can only be installed subject to consent of the user.
What types of cookies are used by this Website?
This website uses “technical” cookies, without the use of which some operations would be extremely complex or even impossible. The installation of technical cookies does not require preliminary user consent. Such cookies may be first-party, third-party, session or permanent cookies.
There are technical cookies so-called strictly necessary, which allow efficient navigation of the website and the exploitation of its essential characteristics, such as the possibility of electronic authentication, saving of previous actions, remembering products recently viewed by the user. If the use of these cookies is disabled, the navigation experience of the user may be compromised and some essential services may become unavailable (such as authentication and use of the shopping cart).
This website also uses so-called functionality technical cookies, which help to improve the navigation experience by saving the preferences of the user, such as language, name, location. These cookies may also be used for the proactive provision of services, through live chat, or to prevent the user from receiving previously refused services. Disabling these cookies will not compromise the navigation experience, although the user will be unable to take advantage of the services offered.
This website may also install technical cookies for the storing of consent. It is recommended that these cookies are not disabled, as they allow the Owner to store the provision of consent by the user.
Third parties cookies:
This website also uses third-party cookies, both technical and profiling cookies, some session-related and other permanent.
The “analytical” technical cookies used in this website do not lead to the processing of personal data (such as user name and surname, or IP address), as data are collected in an aggregate form solely for statistical purposes, and the Owner of the treatment has implemented appropriate means for reducing the identification powers of the analytical cookies used (for example by masking significant parts of the IP address).
On the other hand, although installed at the moment when the user gains access to the website, third-party profiling cookies only become active when the same gives consent to their use. Consent is given by clicking “OK” on the notice found on the home page, or any other pages of the website.
Profiling cookies help to improve the services offered, and select and forward advertising based on the preferences and tastes expressed by the user during the navigation. The use of profiling cookies for the forwarding of targeted advertising does not entail the display of several adverts and does not compromise the navigation experience.
The cancellation of profiling cookies will result in the display of general adverts, therefore not selected based on the preferences or tastes expressed by the user during the navigation.
