COOKIE USE POLICY
Please read the following information carefully:
What is a “cookie”?
A cookie is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from whom the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed by request issued by a web server to a browser (eg Chrome, Safari, Firefox) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the user’s hard drive ).
“Cookies” play an important role in facilitating access to and delivery of multiple services that the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:
Customize certain settings such as:
-language in which a site is viewed;
-the currency in which certain prices or tariffs are expressed;
-keeping the options for various products (measures, other details, etc.) in the shopping cart (and storing these options) – thus generating the flexibility of the “shopping cart”;
-accessing old preferences by accessing the “Forward” and “Back” button
Cookies provide site owners with feedback on how their sites are used by users, so that they can make them even more efficient and accessible to users;
Allow multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a particular site to create a more valuable, useful and enjoyable browsing experience;
Improve the efficiency of online advertising.
What are the advantages of cookies?
A cookie contains information that links a web browser (user) to a specific web server (website). If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide comfortable services to users: eg – online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts or relevant advertising.
What is the lifetime of a cookie?
Cookies are administered by webservers. The lifespan of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website, while other cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website. (‘persistent cookies’). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.
What are third-party cookies?
Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties / providers (eg news-box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties may place cookies through another website and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third party providers must also comply with applicable law and the privacy policies of the site owner.
These cookies may come from the following third parties: facebook.com, twitter.com, etc.
