Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device, to track his/her interaction with the various pages of a website and identify the users who return to visit a website. The cookies do not contain information that identify the user, but the personal information that make it possible to be archived in relation to the user can be connected to the information stored in cookies and obtained from them.


The cookies used can be divided into four large groups as described here below.


Navigation cookies
This type is used to properly identify the language displayed and to maintain it while navigating. The cookies can also be used to create an account and log in. These cookies are necessary for the website to function correctly.

These are used to track the products placed in a shopping cart during the visit or the subsequent displays of the website within a specific period of time. These cookies are necessary for the website to function correctly.


Analytical cookies
This type of cookie is used by web traffic analysis tools, such as Google Analytics. They are used to analyse user navigation methods to understand how the website is used. The navigation data is collected anonymously.


Cookies for marketing/retargeting
These are used by third-party companies to display banners on affiliated external websites. The products presented will be similar to those already observed on the present website. The cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (the period between when a user opens and closes a browser window) or can be stored for a longer period of time.


In fact, there are:


Session cookies
They allow websites to connect the actions of a user during a browser session. The session cookies expire when the browser session ends and therefore are not subject to long-term storage. For this reason the session cookies can be considered less invasive in terms of privacy than permanent cookies.


Permanent cookies
They are stored on a user’s device between the browser session and are used to store the preferences or actions of the user with respect to a website (or in some cases with respect to different websites).


The following detailed information refers to individual third-party cookies as well as the links through which the user can receive more information and request to disable cookies.
