WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files that the sites, visited by the users, send to their navigating device (usually a browser). They are saved in a specific browser folder while the user visits the website and then, resent to the same sites on subsequent visits.
They are used to improve browsing, save user preferences that have already been input (username, password, etc.), track user tastes and preferences, making it possible to manage targeted marketing initiatives or to provide services linked to the data controller’s activities, such as newsletters, service communications on the website etc.
If limits on their use are imposed, this will affect the website content use during consultation. The user can always preventively block or remove them from the browser cache, but these actions may prevent all the services offered by the web application from being used in full.
Session cookies are temporary files which only exist for the duration of the user’s browsing session. When the browser is closed, the session cookies expire. They are usually used to identify users when they access a site to remember the user and his/her preferences in switching from one page to another on the site and to provide specific information collected beforehand.
Persistent cookies are files which stay active even after the browser is closed and help the site remember data and user settings for subsequent consultation. This makes access quicker and more convenient in terms of time since the user does not have to re-enter data to access the site.
Technical cookies are essential for the correct use of our website. Without these cookies, users cannot browse the site and use some of its functions. These types of cookies are known as “technical”, i.e. session or permanent cookies and make it possible to remember, from one page to the next, the booking process and the information provided by the user. Since these cookies are essential, if they are disabled, the use of the website content could be compromised and its use may be impossible or severely limited.
Profiling cookies are cookies that allow user profiles to be created in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while browsing the internet; the use of these cookies requires the user's consent.
