What are cookies and what are they used for

A cookie is a text file that a website visited by the user sends to its terminal where it is stored and then re-transmitted to that site on a subsequent visit.

Cookies are distinguished:

  1. according to the person who installs them on the user's terminal, depending on whether he is the same site manager that the user is visiting (so-called "first-party cookies") or a different site, which installs cookies through the first site (so-called "third-party cookies");
  2. according to the purpose of each cookie: some cookies allow the website that installed them to remember, for example, the preferences expressed by the user while browsing or to make a purchase or to authenticate (cd "technical cookies"), other cookies allow the site that installed them to monitor the user's browsing also for the purpose of sending advertising or offering services in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the net (so-called "profiling cookies").

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of "transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service". Cookies of this type are necessary for the proper functioning of some areas of the site. Cookies in this category include both persistent cookies and session cookies. Without these cookies, the site or parts of it may not work properly. Therefore, they are always used, regardless of user preferences.

Cookies in this category are always sent from our domain. Technical cookies can be divided into:

  • browsing or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
  • analytics cookies (eg Google Analytics), similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
  • functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

It should be noted in particular that the Google Analytics tool used on this website collects visitors' IP addresses to provide an indication of their geographical location. This method is known as IP geolocation. Google Analytics does not report information on the actual IP addresses of visitors. Due to the use of a method known as IP masking, Google Analytics communicates information so that only part of the IP address is used for geolocation, rather than the entire address.

You can download the browser add-on component to deactivate Google Analytics at this address The add-on tells the Google Analytics JavaScript code (ga.js) to indicate that information about the visit to the website should not be sent to Google Analytics. The browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics does not prevent the information from being sent to the website itself.

The use of technical cookies does not require the consent of the interested party.

Cookies for the integration of Third Party functionalities

Cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functionalities on the Website (for example, integration with social networks or advertising services).
