What are Cookies
Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send and store on his/her computer or mobile device, only to be transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit.

It is precisely because of cookies that the Site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login information, chosen language, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to said site or brows from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring, and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site and may also contain a unique identifier code that allows tracking of the user’s browsing within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. In the course of browsing a site, the user may receive on his/her computer or mobile device also cookies from sites or web servers other than the one he/she is visiting (third-party cookies). Some operations could not be accomplished without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the very operation of the Site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a predetermined expiration date.

Under current regulations, express user consent is not always required for the use of cookies. Specifically, technical cookies do not require such consent, as they are indispensable for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

For functionality cookies, used to enable specific features of the Site and a set of selected criteria (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered; analytical cookies, including third-party cookies, which allow us to understand how the Site is used by the user; advertising cookies, i.e., those aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of browsing the Web, prior consent of the user is required.

What cookies are used by the Site
In addition to the types of cookies indicated above, used for its operation and the provision of services on it, to understand and improve the user’s browsing experience, as well as to send advertisements in line with the user’s preferences expressed in the context of web browsing, the Site uses other types of cookies. We can divide the various types of cookies into:

  • technical cookies, i.e. browsing or session cookies and strictly necessary for the operation of the Site or to enable the user to use certain contents and services requested by the user;
  • functionality cookies, i.e., used to enable specific features of the Site and a set of selected criteria (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered;
  • analytical cookies, including third-party cookies, which allow us to understand how the Site is used by users;
  • advertising cookies, including third-party cookies, i.e., cookies aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of browsing the Web.

Functional cookies, analytical cookies, and advertising cookies are activated and used by the Site only in case of prior consent to such use by the user. Third-party cookies, i.e. cookies from sites or web servers other than www.princi.it,  are also used for purposes specific to those third parties.

How to enable or disable cookies
