a. Cookies and how they are used
Cookies are strings of text sent from a web server (such as this website) to your Internet browser. This automatically stores them on your computer and automatically sends them back to the server whenever you access the website again.
Almost all web browsers are set by default to automatically accept cookies.
The Sarchio SpA website uses, or may use, the following categories of cookies, also in combination with one another, based on the categories outlined in regulation n. 229 issued by the Guarantor on 05.08.2014 which does not contemplate the need for prior consent.
“session cookies” cookies are stored on your computer for purely technical and functional reasons, they transmit session identifiers that are required to enable a safe and efficient website browsing experience; they are deleted at the end of the “session” (as their name infers) when you close the browser window. This type of cookie avoids the need to resort to other technologies that could potentially compromise your web browsing privacy;
“persistent cookies” cookies are stored on your computer’s hard drive until they expire or you delete them. Persistent cookies make it possible for you (or any other persons using your computer) to be automatically recognised each time you access the website. Persistent cookies have many functions that are in the interest of website visitors (like your language selection, or remembering what is in your shopping cart when shopping online. Nevertheless, it may be possible that persistent cookies are used for advertising purposes or even somewhat suspicious purposes. You can adjust your computer’s browser settings to accept/reject all cookies or to warn you whenever a cookie is offered so you can decide whether to accept it or not. You can change its default configuration and disable cookies (i.e. blocking them), by setting the highest security level.
In turn, these two types of cookie (session and persistent) may be
“proprietary” quando sono gestiti direttamente dal proprietario e/o responsabile del sito web
“third party” when the cookies are set up and managed by persons not directly involved with the website you are visiting.
b. How cookies work and how you can remove them
You can change how cookies work and decide to limit or block them by altering the settings for your Internet browser.
You can also visit this website, in English, www.aboutcookies.org for information on how to manage / remove cookies depending on your type of browser.
Read the instructions manual for your Smartphone / tablet if you want to remove cookies from its Internet browser.
The list of third-party cookies below includes a link to the page with information on how the specific cookie is used.
