  1. What are cookies?

“Cookies” are small file fragments in text form, which are stored on the User’s browser when he/she visits a website. The information stored on the User’s computer may include details, such as the pages that the User visited, the date and time of his/her visit, as well as a random and unique User identification number. By using such cookies, the Site is able to store useful information regarding the User’s navigation of the Site and read such information in order to provide the User with a unified browsing experience.

 

  1. Which cookies does our Website use?

We use cookies in our Websites for the management of connection periods and other basic functions (such as Member login), for the provision of customised pages and for the adjustment of advertising and other content so that it reflects your particular needs and interests. We may also use cookies to collect anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how the public uses our Websites, so that we may improve their structure and content. We are unable to identify you through this information. You may amend the browser’s settings to reject some or all cookies, with the exception of those that are absolutely necessary. You should know that certain functions are only available through the use of cookies; if you choose to reject cookies, such functions may not be available. Generally speaking, we use the following categories of cookies in our Websites.

 

Necessary cookies

Necessary (also known as absolutely necessary) cookies are fundamental for the correct functioning of our Websites. They allow you to navigate them and use their functionalities, such as access to secure areas. These cookies do not identify you. Without these cookies we cannot ensure the effective functioning of our Websites.

 

Performance cookies (Statistics)

These cookies collect information on how visitors use our Websites, e.g. which pages they visit most often and whether they receive error messages from web pages. These cookies collect aggregated, anonymous information that does not identify visitors. They are used exclusively to improve a web page’s performance.

 

Third-Party Advertising Cookies (Marketing)

These cookies are placed by our partners, whose services we use on our website. For example, Google Maps, social buttons (Facebook Like, Tweet). Using these cookies, our partners collect data based on your interaction with the Websites that you visit, so that you may see, during your visit thereto, advertising content related to your habits. For example, if you show interest in buying a printer and visit a related website, it is very possible that, when you subsequently visit a second Website, you will see printer or related advertisements.

Advertising cookies may, potentially, be useful for visitors, as they significantly improve their online advertising experience.

The identification of visitors among websites is strictly anonymous and is based on features such as the user device ID.
