Bottega Verde carries out no promotional and/or advertising communication without the express prior consent of the User .
The use of these files, called “cookies”, allows users to be recognised.
Users are also free to configure their browser to accept all cookies, refuse them or receive a notification when a cookie is sent to the browser. All services will, in any case, be guaranteed, even if cookies are not permitted, with the difference that in order to be recognised by the Site, customers will have to enter their e-mail address and password. Today's browsers allow Users to decide whether or not to accept cookies, but refusal to accept them may make some features unusable, and some services may not function correctly.
A cookie is a small data packet that a Website stores on the User’s computer. A cookie is a data string, written in machine language (“base language”). Thus, these are small data flows that are saved by Users’ computers when they access a Site or parts of the same.
Cookies, which are more commonly known as “Web Cookies” or “Tracking Cookies”, are small text files that are sent from an internet server – the computer from which the visited Site is running – to Users’ browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and saved on the hard disk of Users’ personal computers. It is an ID card for the Site that sent it and contains no viruses. If you were to open the relative folder, you would see a list of small data flows, all around 1k in size, with the exception of the index file, which is a little bigger. They are all very small data flows and should never create any problems with Users’ disk space.
As they are merely flows of text, they cannot send viruses and if you look at the name of the cookies, you will see that they always contain a reference to the names of the sites that have been visited previously. The use of the information collected through cookies, such as the connectivity server that the User is registered on, the type of browser used and the User’s click-through rate on any banners, is limited to personalisation and degree of satisfaction with the services available on the Site, also concerning advertising.
Cookies are often – wrongly – considered to be executable programmes, which creates inaccurate beliefs. In actual fact, they are simple blocks of data, which – alone – cannot execute any action on the computer. Specifically, they cannot contain spyware or viruses. Despite this, cookies from some sites are categorised as spyware by many anti-spyware products as they allow Users to be identified.
Web pages have no memory. If you browse from one page to another on a Site, you will not be recognised as the same User on each page. Cookies allow the Site to recognise the User’s browser and therefore are mainly used to remember their choices, for example, the language and currency they have selected, and to recognise the User when they visit again.
During the browsing experience, the following is recorded: information concerning the browser used by the client, the click-through rate in the different areas of interest, the products most purchased and a series of aspects linked to personalisation and degree of satisfaction with the services offered by visited Site.
Not all cookies are the same.
There are various kinds of cookies and different ways of using them. Cookies are distinguished based on the function they carry out, their duration and depending on who has added them to a website.
Types of cookies.
Technical cookies are used to offer Users an intuitive and advanced Site that automatically adapts to their needs and preferences. They are essential for the optimal functioning of Sites and allow you to view the website, allow it to function properly, allow you to create a personal account and log in, and allow requests to be managed.
Functional cookies are used to remember preferences and help Users to use the Site effectively and efficiently, as well as recall the searches and facilities that they are currently viewing and those they viewed in the past. Functional cookies are not essential for the functioning of the Site, however they increase its functionality and improve the overall experience.
These two categories of cookies (technical and functional cookies) are so-called temporary cookies .
These are “session cookies” and are sent by the Site to Users’ computers when they are browsing, yet are only saved for the duration of the browsing session. This means that when Users close their browser, the cookies are automatically deleted and disappear, without being saved on the computer. They are made up of random numbers generated by the server and work to allow the Site to be browsed safely and efficiently.
These cookies do not require the prior and express consent of Users as they are strictly necessary for the provision of the service requested by Site Users.
The other types of cookies are:
We use analytical cookies to better understand how visitors use the Site, to understand what works and what doesn’t, to optimise and improve the Site and to ensure that the Site is always interesting and relevant. The data acquired includes web pages visited, exit and entry pages, platform type, date and time information and data such as the number of clicks on a certain page, mouse movements, scrolling, words searched for and text entered while using the Site. We also incorporate analytical cookies for online advertising campaigns to find out how Users interact with a Site, for example, in regard to online sales and also after viewing an ad on third-party Websites.
Commercial cookies are used to show the ads of a Site on other Websites. This is known as “retargeting” and varies depending on the actions of the User on the commercial Site, such as the destinations they search for, the facilities they view and the prices shown.
Cookies originating from social media
Some cookies can be recorded as soon as you visit the Site and use the features of social networks on this Site. These cookies allow Users to share Site content with other people, as well as their opinion on what they share. This is the case with the “Share” or “Like” options offered by “Facebook”, “Twitter”, “LinkedIn” and “Viadeo”, etc. If you decide to use these options and, more generally, if you decide to visit the Site while remaining connected to a social network, these cookies may communicate information about your visit to the Site to the social networks in question. This information may be used for sales or advertising purposes.
In addition to cookies, sometimes so-called web beacons are used. A web beacon is a small graphic image consisting of a single pixel that is placed on Users’ computers as part of a web page or via an email in HTML format. These pixels are used directly or through third party providers, on the relevant Site or on those of third parties. The purposes are varied: to determine whether a User decides to continue after viewing an online ad; to track conversion rates for partner Websites; and to analyse the online behaviour of Users in order to optimise the services the Site offers.
This category represents the cookies that are commonly known as permanent cookies .
