WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings, which the websites visited by a user send to his/her terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being sent back to the same websites during the next visit by the same user. While visiting a website, a user may also receive cookies on their terminal that are sent from different websites or servers (so-called "third parties"), which contain certain elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages on other domains) found on the website that the user is visiting. Cookies can have a limited duration to a single browsing session on the browser (so-called session cookies), and in this case they are automatically deactivated when the user closes the browser; or they may have a predetermined deadline and, in this case, they will remain stored and active on the hard disk until this expiry date, continuing to collect information during different browsing sessions on the browser (so-called persistent cookies).
Cookies are used for different functions. Some are necessary to browse the website and take advantage of its features (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether aggregated or not, on the number of users accessing the Website and on how the Website is used (so-called tracking or analytics cookies). Others, finally, are used to track a specific profile and display advertisements on the website that may be interesting for you, as they are consistent with your tastes and your consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).
For more details on these different categories of cookies read this notice. Learn how they work and what they are necessary for, and choose freely whether to consent to using or preventing them.
TYPES OF COOKIES
Cookies are distinguished from one another:
- based on the subject who installs them, depending on whether the latter also manages the website that is being visited (so-called "first-party cookies") or another subject does it (so-called "third-party cookies")
- according to the purpose served by each cookie: some cookies allow better browsing, memorising some of the users’ choices, such as the language they use (so-called "technical cookies"). Other cookies allow the users’ browsing choices to be tracked, in order to send advertising material and/or offer services, which are in line with the user's preferences (so-called "profiling cookies").
Technical cookies are defined as those used for the sole purpose of "transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or insofar as is strictly necessary for the service provider of an information company to supply a service explicitly requested by a subscriber or a user". Technical cookies are those that provide the browser with some features that facilitate navigation, for example those that allow users to access their profile without having to log in each time, to find the products they had added to the cart even after several days, select the language with which they want to browse the site without having to set it each time. Technical cookies can also count the number of accesses and collect other anonymous and aggregated information about visitors.
FIRST PARTY COOKIES
The www.momodesign.com website uses the following types of first-party technical cookies, for whose installation no consent is required from the user but for which the obligation remains, at the care of ECPF S.r.l., to provide adequate information:
- Navigation or session cookies: fundamental to allow the user to move normally within our website and to properly use the relative services; they disappear when the browser is closed as they are not stored on the user's computer;
- Functional cookies: solely designed to improve and speed up browsing on the website, by storing certain choices made by the user;
The use of technical cookies and the related processing does not require the prior consent of the user, in accordance with current regulations.
In any case, the possibility remains for the latter to prevent the installation of technical cookies through the settings of his/her browser at any time as will be explicitly indicated later in this policy.
ECPF S.r.l. acts as Data Controller exclusively in reference to the first-party cookies installed on its website.
Third-party cookies are defined as those that during the browsing of a user on the website, are stored on his device and are not directly controlled and managed by the owner of the site itself. This happens, for example, when the user visits a page that includes the contents of a third-party website. For all these reasons, when installing third-party cookies, it is not the responsibility of ECPF S.r.l. that has no role in the processing of data arising from this type of cookie, the use of them is made by those who manage them. The use of third-party cookies requires, in accordance with the current regulations, the prior consent of the user.
Profiling cookies are those suitable for the creation of a browser profile that allows you to understand their behaviour on the website, the interests, guidelines and all the information useful to be able to understand who they are and what interests them, with the purpose of sending them personalized messages or sell them targeted services or products. The ultimate purpose of these cookies is different from that of the previous ones in that they are aimed only and exclusively at understanding the preferences of individual users so as to subject them to targeted and plausibly interesting content while browsing. The use of this type of cookie requires, in accordance with current regulations, the prior consent of the user
