Technical cookies that do not require prior consent from the user
Technical cookies are used to allow the site to function and/or to provide the user with a service or function that the user has specifically requested. Therefore, they ensure the normal browsing and use of the site allowing, also, to save the preferences expressed by the user, and to optimise its browsing. The site uses both first and third party technical cookies. The technical cookies used by the site can be divided into the following sub-categories:
– “user input” cookie: session cookies used to keep track of the data provided by the user by filling in the appropriate online forms (for example the forms present during the purchase process for entering the shipping or billing address); or, as happens in the case of the shopping cart, to remember the items that the user has selected and added to the cart by clicking on the appropriate button;
– “cookie consent”: cookie that demonstrates the user’s consent to the installation of profiling cookies by completing one of the actions described in the banner/short policy. It also recognizes the user at the second access to the site, so as not to request again to the installation of cookies. It has a duration of 12 months.
Third party cookies
This site also acts as an intermediary for third party cookies (such as button for social networks), that are used to provide additional services and features to visitors and to simplify the use of the site itself, or to provide personalised advertising.
