WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user’s previous activity. Some cookies are allocated to your PC only for the duration of your visit to a website, and these are called session based cookies. These automatically expire when you close down your browser. Another type of cookie would remain on your PC for a period of time. These are known as “persistent” cookies.
TYPES OF COOKIES
Cookies can be installed by the site you’re visiting (first-party cookies) or may be installed by other websites (third-party cookies).
a) Strictly necessary cookies:
These cookies are indispensable for the correct functioning of the site www.casadelbronzo.com and are used to manage login and access to the site’s reserved functions. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (when the browser is closed they are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of the services accessible by login. The public part of the site www.casadelbronzo.com normally remains usable.
b) Analysis and performance cookies:
These are cookies used to collect and analyse traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
c) Profiling cookies:
d) Third-party cookies:
By visiting a website, you may receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”) and from websites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made.
The www.casadelbronzo.com site also includes certain components by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Also these are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies). Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyse anonymous information on the Behavior of use of the site www.casadelbronzo.com (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports for www.casadelbronzo.com operators regarding the activities on the websites themselves. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analytics tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google nor does it attempt to link an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may communicate this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing on his browser the opt-out component provided by Google.
DURATION OF COOKIES
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent user visits. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases, a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited. www.casadelbronzo.com does not use persistent cookies. However, by browsing the pages of the site www.casadelbronzo.com, you can interact with sites operated by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.
The user can decide whether to accept cookies using the settings on his or her browser. The total or partial disabling of technical cookies may compromise the use of the website features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies. Disabling “third party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way. The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. Furthermore, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third-party” cookies.
