In compliance with Provision No.229 (available here: http://www.garanteprivacy.it/web/guest/home/docweb/-/docweb-display/docweb/3118884) issued by the Guarantor for Personal Data Protection on 8th May 2014, Expergreen s.r.l. provides the following information on cookies, their functions and how to disable them, if necessary.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and store in his personal computer or any other device, including mobile, and then are transmitted to the same sites on the next visit. Cookies are used for various purposes: for example, to remember the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to visit the said site or browse from one page to another; or to perform computer authentications, session monitoring and storage of data concerning the activities of users who access a site and can also contain a unique identification code which allows keeping track of the user’s navigation in the site for statistical or advertising purposes.
There are therefore different types of cookies, which can be distinguished by their characteristics and functions:
Browsing or session cookies
These cookies are not stored permanently in the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date, and therefore the browser is able to identify them as such.
They are used when strictly necessary to provide a service that has been explicitly requested by the user. In other words, they are cookies that are useful for browsing and to facilitate the access to and use of the site by the user. Technical cookies are essential, for example, to access your profile or the shopping cart section of an ecommerce without having to log in to all sessions. They are also present in basic operations such as payment by credit card or other systems.
They are used to collect data, in aggregate form, on the number of users of the site and the pages visited (for example Google Analytics). Please refer to the relevant policies which may change periodically and which we suggest visiting in time, where more detailed information is available, for example https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookieusage.
Third-party cookies belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. These types of cookies typically appear when web pages are provided with contents, such as banner ad, from external websites that, through tracking activity, monitor the user’s preferences in an attempt to send relevant and personalized ads.
The cookies on this site are therefore the following
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google. In particular, Google Analytics uses, in our site, cookies which do not store any personal data and which are stored in the user’s computer to allow the website manager to analyse how users use the site for statistical purposes only. If you want to prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about your browsing, you can download the browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
_cfduid by Cloudflare
The cookie __cfduid is used to identify individual clients by a shared IP address and apply security settings on a client base. It does not store any personal identifiable information. This cookie is strictly necessary for Cloudflare security features and cannot be deactivated.
The types of cookies mentioned above may remain in the computer or mobile device of the user for different periods of time, depending on the function they perform. Cookies stored in the computer or mobile device cannot be used to retrieve any data from the hard disk, transmit computer viruses, or for purposes other than those described above.
How to change your cookie settings
Most browsers are configurated to accept, control or, if necessary, disable cookies through their settings. However, we remind you that disable browsing or functional cookies can cause the site to work and/or limit the service we offer.
Therefore, you can set and manage your preferences for cookies at any time, selecting which cookies to authorize, block or delete, in whole or in part, through your browser settings; here is the path to follow to manage cookies from the main browsers used:
What does deleting and/or disabling cookies mean?
Deleting cookies may cause that:
- the cached settings cannot be used anymore and so you will have to log in again when logging in.
- the site could be slower since some features would no longer be enabled
- you may have to manually enter some information or preferences each time you visit the site
For more information about cookies and to manage your preferences for third-party profiling cookies, please visit https://www.youronlinechoices.com.
our site will store the user preferences for cookies thanks to a special technical cookie, which the user will have to accept when he first loads the website on his browser.
