First of all, what are cookies? A cookie is a small text file (a few bytes) exchanged between a website and its browser and normally used by the website operator to store information needed to improve navigation within the site. The types of cookies that are used on this site:
A) NAVIGATION COOKIES
These cookies allow the site to function correctly. Once you have created your account, they allow you to log in and manage your profile in all its areas (session identification cookies, timestamps). If you are a registered user, thanks to cookies, the site will be able to recognise you as such when you access the services offered to registered users.
B) FUNCTIONAL COOKIES
These cookies allow the site to recognise you each time you access the site. If you have chosen to add items to your basket and you do not delete them by closing the session without making a purchase, these cookies will allow you to receive emails with details of your basket and ad-hoc promotional codes and also allow you to offer a better, personalised service such as being generated if the user no longer wants to see the popup capture email, or if they have left a comment on the blog or an article, or remember to vote on an article.
C) ANALYTICAL COOKIES
These cookies are used by Google Analytics and the internal search engine, to process statistical analyses of how users navigate the site through their computers on the number of pages visited or the number of clicks made on a page while browsing the site, as well as reports on demographic data (such as gender, age and interests).They are used to collect data on how visitors (not only those who are registered) use the site and thus allow us to improve its appearance and navigation.
D) SOCIAL COOKIES
These cookies are used to remember a share or your action on the site (e.g. Like an article).
E) TRANSACTIONAL COOKIES
These cookies are used through automated systems without the intervention of an operator (art.13 2009/136/EC) for the purpose of direct marketing of its products or services, and are only allowed to registered users of the site.
F) COOKIES FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING
For advertisements on our Site we sometimes use independent advertising companies. These companies may recognise or place a specific cookie on your computer or mobile device. These cookies are used to send you the advertisements that are most relevant to you and most closely match your interests. They are also used to limit the frequency with which an ad is served to you, as well as to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They store that you have visited a site and this information is shared with other organisations, such as advertising companies. Google Analytics functions implemented on the basis of display advertising (e.g. remarketing, Google Display Network impression reports, DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration or Google Analytics demographic and interest data reports, as well as those provided by third parties).Using Ad Settings, visitors can deactivate Google Analytics for display advertising and customise ads for the Google Display Network.
G) GOOGLE AND THIRD-PARTY MARKETING/RETARGETING COOKIES
These cookies are used by third party providers to display banner advertisements on other affiliate sites, showing you the latest products you have looked at on the site. To do this, we use both proprietary cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies.
