Policy on cookies Vaggioielli (the “Policy”)
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data, which often includes a unique identifier sent to the browser of the user’s computer by a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each Web site or external service provider used by the Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser allows a website or service provider outside of access only to cookies that are already sent to the user, and not the cookies sent by other sites or from other external service providers. A cookie will contain some anonymous information as a unique identifier, the name of the site and some figures and numbers. It enables a website to remember information such as user preferences or the items included in the shopping cart. A cookie may be a session cookie or a cookie that is stored in the user’s browser while connected to a particular Web site and disappears at the end of the browser, or a persistent cookie, a cookie that stays in the browser for a certain period of time.
