Information about types and use of cookies:

From the standpoint of the cookie's "lifespan" (time that the cookie remains active on our computer) we can differentiate between the following cookies:

A. Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that are kept in your browser's cookie file until you leave the website, which means they are never saved on your hard drive. The information obtained through these cookies is used to analyse website navigation patterns. In the long run, we can use this information to improve the user experience, enhance content and make the site easier to use.

B. Persistent cookies: they are stored on the hard drive and our website reads them every time you make a new visit. A persistent cookie has a fixed expiry date, and it will no longer work after that date. We usually use them make the user's buying and registration services as smooth as possible. 

In terms of how each cookie is used, we can differentiate between:

A. Strictly necessary cookies: these cookies are essential. Examples are those used for browsing correctly, those used to pay for goods or services requested by the user or cookies which ensure that website content is effectively loaded.

The Strictly necessary cookies category also covers cookies used for the following purposes:

  • Cookies used solely to connect between the user's PC and the network.
  • Cookies used strictly to provide a service which the user has expressly asked for.

In these two cases, the user does not need to be informed and to give their consent to install these cookies. The EU Expert Working Group, in Article 29 of its Opinion 4/20123, interpreted that exempted cookies would include those with the following purposes:

  • "User input" cookies
  • User authentication or identification cookies (session only)
  • User security cookies
  • Media player session cookies
  • Session cookies to balance loads
  • User interface customisation cookies
  • Plug-in cookies for exchanging social content

For all other Strictly necessary cookies not included in the list above, users will have to be informed and give their consent beforehand.

B. Functional (analytical) cookies: Cookies used to analyse the use of the Website so that we can measure and improve its performance.

C. Advertising and third-party cookies: cookies used by social media, or by external content plug-ins such as Google Maps, as well as cookies from advertising companies to show users adverts catered to their interests.
