There are various types of cookies, some to make your use of the Site more effective, others to enable certain features.
www.italianist.com only uses technical and analytical cookies, does not use profiling cookies and does not use third-party cookies.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
This type of cookie allows the correct functioning of the Site and a better experience for the user (e.g. memorisation of the language chosen, of the user’s username and password, and of the products in the shopping cart). Technical cookies are of two categories: persistent (once you close your browser they are not destroyed but remain until a preset expiration date) and session (they are destroyed every time you close your browser). These cookies will then always be used and sent unless the user changes the settings in their browser (thus affecting the display of pages on the site).
2. Analytical cookies
These cookies are used, for example, by Google Analytics to carry out statistical analyses on how users navigate the site through their computers or mobile applications, on the number of pages visited or the number of clicks made on a page while a site is being visited. The Site processes the results of these analyses anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes.
This type of cookie integrates features developed by third parties within the pages of the Site, such as icons and preferences expressed in social networks, to share the site’s content or for use of third-party software services.
4. Profiling cookies
These cookies are necessary to create user profiles in order to send advertising messages in keeping with the preferences expressed by users on the pages of the Site.
HOW DO I DISABLE COOKIES?
According to current legislation, the Site is not required to ask consent for technical cookies and analytical cookies, as they do not collect personal identification information and are necessary to provide the services requested. For all other types of cookies, Users may give their consent/refusal:
– using specific configurations of the browser or of the programs used to surf the Internet
– by changing settings when using third-party services, both these solutions may prevent Users (you) from using or viewing parts of the Site.
You can configure your browser to disable cookies by a simple procedure.
