1) WHAT ARE COOKIES
Cookies are short strings of text that websites we visit transmit and save on our computer. They contain information that, when we reconnect to a site we have already visited, allows for more efficient and pleasant navigation, since they store the visitor's preferences and tastes. Data storage is done in a completely anonymous way, i.e. there is no connection between the stored data (e.g.: IP address, browser and/or S. O. used, pages of the site visited) and personal data of users.
2) TYPES OF COOKIES
There is a wide variety of cookies. To categorize them sensibly, we identify three attribute types: duration (lifecycle), origin, and purpose.
To the first type belong:
SESSION COOKIES: these cookies are not stored persistently on the user's device and are deleted when the browser is closed.
PERSISTENT COOKIES: instead of vanishing when the browser is closed, persistent cookies expire after a specified period of time. This means that, for the lifetime of the cookie, its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the same site. For this reason, persistent cookies can be used by advertisers to record information about a user's web browsing habits for an extended period of time. They are also used to make it more "convenient" for the user to navigate (e.g., they are used to keep users registered in their accounts on websites, in order to avoid, on each visit, entering credentials to access websites).
Of the second type are:
FIRST PARTY COOKIES: these are those sent to the browser directly from the website you are visiting. They can be either persistent or sessional; they are managed directly by the owner and/or manager of the site and are used, for example, to ensure its technical operation or keep track of preferences expressed regarding the use of the site itself.
THIRD-PARTY COOKIES: belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. These types of cookies typically appear when web pages have banner ads or links to external websites. Most modern web browsers contain privacy settings that are capable of blocking third-party cookies.
The third type includes:
TECHNICAL COOKIES: they are used for navigation and to facilitate the user's access and enjoyment of the site. Technical cookies are essential for example to access Google or Facebook without having to log in to all sessions. In terms of Privacy (GDPR 2018), it is sufficient for the user visiting the site to be made aware of their use, without the need for "consent".
STATISTICAL COOKIES (ANALITYCS): are used for site optimization purposes, directly by the site owner, who may collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site, but in a completely anonymous way. If the latter condition is met, in terms of Privacy (GDPR 2018), what has already been stated for technical cookies applies: just inform the visitor that the site uses them
PREFERENCE MEMORIZATION COOKIES: these are cookies useful to facilitate the correct use of the site by the user. They are used, for example, to keep track of the language chosen.
ADVERTISING COOKIES: these cookies are intended to provide advertising space. They can be installed, either by the site owner or by third parties. Some are used to recognize individual advertisements and know which ones are selected and when. Other advertising cookies are used to hypothesize a browsing "profile" of the user, so that advertisements can be proposed in line with his behavior and interests in the network. Such a "profile" is anonymous and this type of cookie also does not allow the user's identity to be traced. In this case, however, the cookie is the basis for systems to drive so-called "behavioral advertising."
SOCIAL NETWORK COOKIES: they also allow you to share with other users the content of the site you are visiting. These are the cookies typically used to enable the "Like" or "Follow" functions of Social Networks. These features allow Social Networks to identify their users and collect information even as they browse other sites.
3) WHAT COOKIES STORM CLUB MONZA USES
Our site uses the following types of cookies:
TECHNICAL COOKIES and STATISTICAL COOKIES: both of these types do not require consent under current legislation. The user is made aware of their use through an appropriate notice (e.g. a banner) before accessing the pages of the website.
4) COOKIE MANAGEMENT AND BROWSER SETTINGS
