A cookie is a file sent by a web server to a user's computer. These text files are automatically created by browsers and sites. They contain some of the user's personal information to facilitate navigation
Our website, https://www.fontanainfortunistica.it (hereinafter: 'the website') only uses so-called session cookies.
The term 'session cookie' includes the word 'session'; a session is started the moment a website or web application is opened. It can also last only the time between a login and a logout. The server immediately creates a 'Session ID' which is transmitted to the client. This ID, also called a session identifier, is a number consisting of random digits, which temporarily stores session cookies and serves primarily to assign the user a precise session. The session identifier has a great advantage: if you open several windows on the same site, these will be associated with a single session. This makes it possible to launch several requests at the same time without losing important personal information.
Session cookies are cookies that typically last until the Internet browser is closed. When the browser session ends, the cookie expires.
Session cookies thus release information about the current session. For example, if you have placed several products in the shopping cart of an online shop, these will remain saved in place until the end of the session. Other information such as login data or completed online forms will also remain saved during the session. As soon as the browsing session ends, however, the session identifier and all other saved data will be deleted. This means that by reopening the same site on another window you will be considered as a new visitor.
Difference compared to other cookies
While session cookies are only needed to simplify the use of a website, persistent cookies have partly other purposes. They analyse the browsing behaviour of the users and allow companies to better understand their customers. For instance, they can show the products viewed during a session. This identifies a customer's potential purchase, which are then retargeted with specific digital marketing advertisements. Persistent cookies also make it possible to save the user's data after closing a browser. Thus, they do not have to be entered again on a new visit.
The Fontana & Fontana site only uses session cookies
No personal user data is purposely acquired by the site.
Cookies are not used to transfer information of a personal nature.
The use of so-called session cookies (which are not stored persistently on the user's computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable the safe and efficient exploration of the site.
The so-called session cookies used on this site avoid the use of other IT techniques potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of users' browsing and do not allow the acquisition of personal data identifying the user.
