WHAT ARE COOKIES?
As a rule of thumb, cookies are small text strings that the websites visited by the user send to his/her terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same websites on the user’s next visit.
While browsing on a specific website, the user can receive on his/her terminal both the cookies of the same website visited, and cookies that are instead sent by different websites or web servers (i.e. “third party” cookies), on which some elements may reside (such as, e.g., images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages from other domains, etc.) which are shown on the website being visited by the same user.
Cookies can be generally used for different purposes such as, for example, to perform IT authentication, monitor sessions, store information on specific configurations for users accessing the server, for profiling purposes, etc.
First-party cookies are cookies that are installed on the user’s terminal and managed directly by the Company through this website.
Navigation or session cookies
“Navigation” or “session” cookies are essential to allow the user to easily move around our website, carry out the activities that are strictly necessary for the site to function properly and, therefore, ensure normal browsing and use. These cookies are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and will consequently disappear when the browser is closed.
In accordance with current legislation, using these cookies and processing them does not require the user’s prior consent. However, the user can decide to deny consent to the installation of these cookies through the settings of its browser, in full awareness of the fact that such a choice could adversely affect its stay on our website.
“Functionality cookies – so-called technical cookies – allow our website to remember some choices made by the user (such as providing his/her geographical location), in order to provide the latter with more customised, optimised browsing (e.g. searches and identifying the centre closest to the user’s geographical location).
It should be noted that these cookies are not used by the Company in order to profile the user’s web browsing, but only to customise the service rendered by the Company. The information collected through these cookies is anonymous.
Functionality cookies are not essential to operate our website, but improve quality as well as the user’s browsing experience. As a result, if you do not accept these cookies, the performance and functionality of www.alfaparfmilano.com may be lower, and access to certain site contents limited.
Using these cookies and processing them does not require the user’s prior consent. However, the user can decide to deny consent to the installation of these cookies through the settings of its browser.
When a user browses our website, some cookies which are not controlled and managed by the Company may be stored. This happens, for example, if the user visits a page that includes the contents of a third-party website. As a result, the user will receive cookies from these third-party services.
The following table shows the third-party cookies present on www.alfaparfmilano.com. These cookies fall under the direct, exclusive responsibility of the third party that installs them on the user’s terminal, and are divided into the following macro-categories:
Analytical: these are the cookies used to collect and analyse statistical information on the number of users and visits to the website;
Advertising: this category includes cookies used to provide advertising services within a specific website;
Widgets: some widgets made available by social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ buttons) can use their own cookies for easier interaction with the reference social network, thus allowing the user to share the contents of a specific page of our website. Disabling these third-party cookies will not compromise the use of the site, except for the possibility of rapid content sharing only. Some of the third-party cookies may also be used for user profiling purposes and, therefore, to collect information about the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the Internet.
As regards, in particular, third-party cookies that are also used for profiling purposes, please note that these cookies are not managed by the Company and that, as a result, the Company does not have direct and/or indirect access to the information collected by using them.
To gain insights into third-party cookies that are also used for profiling purposes and to manage the aforementioned cookies (activation and deactivation, if the user does not wish to receive third-party cookies), see the following link.
