WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. They are stored on your device (e.g., computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) and sent back to the same site when you visit it again. Based on the subject managing the cookies sent by a website, cookies can be divided into two types:
“first-party” cookies when they are directly managed by the owner and/or editor of the Polimoda website
“third-party” cookies when they are managed by subjects from a domain other than the website being visited by the user.
Technical cookies are used to allow users to browse normally and to improve the usability of our website. They are also used to track, in compliance with the current laws (see “Simplified Arrangements to Provide Information and Obtain Consent Regarding Cookies” of 8 May 2014) user consent for the receipt of cookies. Technical cookies are divided into two categories:
Permanent cookies, which remain after the browser has been closed
Session cookies, which are sent to the user’s device/browser to meet technical and functional requirements, but they are not stored for any length of time on the user’s device and are deleted at the end of the browsing “session” as soon as the browser is closed.
While browsing on our website, it is possible that some cookies are sent from domains that are not ours or which can be directly traced to third-party websites. Polimoda has no control over cookies used by third parties and therefore, for more details about the use of information collected by third parties, we recommend consulting the privacy policies of these third parties, as well as the options to deactivate the collection of this information.
Some Third Parties may send cookies that allow them to understand the habits and preferences shown by users while browsing, via the websites managed by Polimoda. Some types of cookie, managed by third parties, also provide us with aggregated statistical information about visits to our websites and on browsing habits, so that we can improve the usability experience.
In line with current laws, during a user’s first visit to our website, third-party profiling and analytics cookies can only be sent after receipt of prior consent from that user. Consent can be given as follows:
by clicking on any link on the page
by clicking on the “OK” button or on the “X” button of the banner containing the brief notice
HOW TO EDIT BROWSER PREFERENCES
Cookie consent can also be expressed through specific browser settings that can be configured by the user. The majority of browsers allow cookie management rules to be set so that cookies from some or all websites can be accepted. This option offers users a more precise control of their privacy and to block cookies themselves.
Normally the browser guide (help on line) provides easy access to information about disabling or deleting cookies stored locally. For information purposes only, we have provided links that can provide the relevant information about the main browsers:
Polimoda would like to remind you that restricting a website’s ability to send cookies will worsen the user’s overall browsing experience.
Like many other website, this also makes use of log files: this means it records the history of operations as they are performed. The information in this register file includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISO), date, time, entry and exit page, and number of clicks. This is all to analyse trends, for site administration, to monitor user movement within the site and to collect demographic data, IP addresses, and other information. These data do not identify the user in any way.
