What are cookies?

In general, cookies are small sized text strings that websites visited by users send to the users’ computers (usually the browser), where they are saved and then sent back to the same websites the next time the same user visits them.

While browsing on a specific website, the user’s computer may receive both the cookies of the website visited and cookies that are sent by other websites or web servers (“third-party” cookies), on which certain elements may reside (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains, etc.), which are displayed on the website that the user is visiting.

Cookies may generally be used for different purposes such as executing IT authentications, monitoring sessions, saving information on specific configurations regarding users that access the server, for profiling purposes, etc.

First-party cookies

First-party cookies are installed on the user’s computer and managed directly by B&B through this website.

B&B may use cookies for different reasons. In some parts of our website, cookies are essential, and without them the user would be unable to use our services. B&B is always seeking out ways to improve its website and make learning about its services easier. To do this, it is important to understand how our services and the website are used. Cookies also help us to provide users with a better and richer experience, for example by suggesting information that can be of greater interest to the user.

Navigation or session cookies

“Navigation” or “session” cookies are fundamental to enable users to move around on our website, to carry out the activities strictly required for the functioning of the website (for example, allowing users to make a purchase or authenticate themselves to access private areas) and, therefore, to guarantee regular navigation on and use of the website. These cookies are not saved in a persistent manner on the user’s computer and, as a result, they disappear when the browser is closed.

Regulations in force do not require prior user consent to the use of these cookies and the processing associated with them. However, users may choose to deny consent to the installation of these cookies by adjusting their browser settings, but they should be aware of the fact that this decision may negatively influence their experience on our website.

Functionality cookies

“Functionality” cookies – which are classified as technical cookies pursuant to the Cookie Measure – make it possible for our website to remember certain user choices (such as geographical location and language preferences), in order to provide users with a more personalised and optimised navigation experience (such as searching for and identifying the shop closest to the geographical location disclosed by the user and the provision of our website content in the language selected by the user).

B&B does not use these cookies to profile the user’s web browsing activity. They are used only to personalise the service provided by B&B. The information gathered through these cookies is anonymous.

Functionality cookies are not indispensable to the functioning of our website, but they improve its quality and the user’s browsing experience. As a result, if these cookies are not accepted, the performance and functionality of www.alfaparfmilano.com/ may be inferior and access to specific website content may be limited.

Regulations in force do not require prior user consent to the use of these cookies and the processing associated with them. However, users may choose to deny consent to the installation of these cookies by adjusting their browser settings.

Third-party cookies

When a user browses on our website, it is possible that some cookies may be saved that are not controlled and managed by B&B. This happens, for example, if the user visits a page that includes the content of a third-party website. In this case, the user will receive cookies from these third-party services.

The table below identifies the third-party cookies present on www.alfaparfmilano.com/. These cookies fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the third party that installs them on the user’s computer, and are broken down into the following macro-categories:

  • Analytics: these cookies are used to gather and analyse statistical information on the number of users and on visits to the website;
  • Advertising: these cookies are used to provide advertising services on a specific website.

Some third-party cookies may also be used for user profiling purposes and, therefore, to gather information about preferences expressed by the user while browsing online. For more details about the third-party cookies that are also used for profiling purposes, please refer to the table below.

Users who would not like to receive third-party cookies on their computers may use the links provided below to access the disclosures and consent forms of such third parties and refuse receipt of those cookies. In particular, please note that the cookies used by third parties also for profiling purposes are not managed by B&B and that, as a result, B&B has no direct and/or indirect access to the information gathered by using them.
