COOKIES: A DEFINITION
Cookies are small text files sent by websites that you visit to your device. These text files are stored on your device before being returned to the website that issued them each time you access a page on that website. Cookies help websites identify you, both for the duration of the browsing session and for longer periods.
When you access a page on this website, technical cookies will be sent to your device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.).
Technical cookies are essential to being able to browse certain websites and to being able to use all the features available such as, for example, access to reserved areas. Without these cookies, it would not be possible to provide the services requested. These cookies do not collect information to use for commercial purposes.
Technical cookies can be:
- Session: which ensure that the website can be used and browsed normally (allowing, for example, access to a reserved area).
- Functional: which allow the user to browse a website based on a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
- Analytics: which collection information, in an aggregate form, on the number of users who visit the website and how they use it.
ww.zanardifonderie.com uses SlimStat to monitor the number of visitors to the website and to analyse how they use it.
SlimStat implements so-called anonymised cookies: using a method note as an “IP mask”, through which only partial information is displayed, SlimStat does not provide information on the entire IP address. In this way, identifying the user is rendered impossible. The information collected in this way will not be divulged to any third party and, in any case, the user has the option of allowing, blocking or deleting cookies installed on his/her device through his/her browser options or through the privacy options on his/her mobile device with which he/she accesses the web.
Google Analytics is a web service provided by Google. Through cookies, information is acquired (including the IP address) which is useful in understanding how users interact with the website. This information is sent to and stored on Google’s servers in the United States and is used: (i) to track and analyse the user’s use of the aforementioned website; (ii) to prepare reports on the website’s activities for website operators and to provide other services relative to the website’s activities and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required by law or where these third parties process the aforementioned information on behalf of Google and the user’s IP address will not be associated with any other data already in their possession. Hence, this service allows statistics to be analysed regarding the website’s visitors solely in an anonymous and aggregate form. As indicated by the Italian Data Protection Authority, “in the event in which a site also allows the transmission of ‘third-party’ cookies, supplying an advisory note and acquiring the user’s consent are typically the responsibility of that third party.” (source: http://www.garanteprivacy.it/web/guest/home/docweb/-/docweb-display/docweb/2145979).
