WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser while the user is browsing. They are designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information or to record the user’s browsing activity. Cookies enable websites to store and retrieve information about the user’s or their computer’s browsing habits. Depending on the type of information they contain and the way the computer is used, they can be used to identify the user. Usually (but not always), cookies are stored in your hard disk, taking up very little space without interfering with the user’s computer. Moreover, cookies do not contain particular personal information; most of them are deleted when you close your browser (session cookies).. The information contained in cookies does not reveal your identity or include personal data. Furthermore, cookies do not have access to the content stored in the user’s computer: they just enable our system to identify you as a user who has browsed our website before, storing information about your browsing preferences and technical aspects (e.g. the pages you visited or the number of visits). In sum, cookies do not contain sensitive information about you, such as credit card numbers, bank account details, photographs, ID cards, and so on. Rather, the type of information stored is merely technical (browsing preferences, personalised content, etc.). As a result, the website server does not associate the user to an individual but rather to a web browser. In fact, if you regularly use Internet Explorer and one day you access our website from Firefox or Chrome, the website will not realise it is the same user and so will not show your usual preferences.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
Technical cookies: They are the most elementary type of cookies, necessary for website browsing. They enable you to browse the various pages in our website, using the options or services offered in them, e.g. login, restricted access, shopping, content sharing in social media, etc.
Analytics cookies: These cookies enable us (or third parties) to analyse your browsing habits by gathering information about it: most viewed categories, language, etc. This information can be used in statistical analysis or measurements of the use of our website.
Targeting cookies: These cookies are used to display contents with predefined general characteristics on the basis of parameters set in the user’s computer, such as language, type of browser, regional settings, and so on.
Advertising cookies and behavioural advertising: Advertising cookies enable a more effective management of advertisements by VITRINOR and third parties on the basis of the services you request or your use of our website. Advertising cookies analyse your browsing habits on the Internet to show you related advertisements. They store information about your browsing behaviour after continuous observation, in order to draft your advertising profile and show you relevant advertising content.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIRST-PARTY AND THIRD-PARTY COOKIES?
First-party cookies: The cookies set by the website you are browsing.
Third-party cookies: The cookies set by (and on) a domain that is not the domain that appears in the browser address bar – mostly service providers: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, etc.
