7.1 The Company’s website uses data analysis management tools – “cookies”.

7.2 By using the Company’s website, the Data Subject consents to the storage of cookies on the Data Subject’s computer/device.

7.3 Cookies are small amounts of data that the website places on the Data Subject’s computer. Web pages have no memory. If the Data Subject browses different web pages, the Data Subject will not be recognised as the same user. Cookies allow a web page to recognise the Data Subject’s browser. The main purpose of cookies is to remember the Data Subject’s preferences, such as the preferred language of a web page. Cookies also help to recognise the Data Subject when they return to the same web page. They help to personalise the web page. Cookies cannot be used to execute programs or to transfer viruses to your computer. Cookies are addressed only to the Data Subject and can only be read by the web server of the domain that sent the cookie to the Data Subject. One of the main purposes of cookies is to provide a convenient function to save the Data Subject’s time. For example, if a Data Subject uses a website for personal purposes or browses a web page, cookies will help the website to remember specific information after a later visit. This makes it easier to present relevant content, navigate the website, etc. By returning to the website, the Data Subject can find the information he or she has previously provided and can therefore use the already customised features of the website more easily.

7.4 The processing of data by means of cookies does not allow the direct or indirect identification of the user.

7.5 The following types of cookies may be used on the Company’s website:

7.5.1. technical (necessary) cookies. These cookies are necessary for the website to function. For example, they are cookies set by the entity that hosts the website on the server in order to ensure that the website and its pages are downloaded from the same server and thus to ensure a smooth and fast navigation of the website.

7.5.2 Functional cookies. These cookies are used to remember when a user returns to the website and their choices, such as language choices.

7.5.3 Analytical cookies. These are cookies that collect information about a user’s visit to a web page, identify which pages the user views, and determine which pages are visited most frequently. These analytical cookies are completely anonymous and help ensure that users find the information they are looking for.

7.5.4 Advertising cookies. These are cookies that collect information about the user’s visit to the website, specific pages and links provided. This information is used to provide personalised advertising to the user.

7.6 Each time the Data Subject visits the Company’s website, he/she may accept or refuse the use of cookies, but in this case the Company cannot guarantee the quality of the website browsing. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but the Data Subject can easily modify the browser not to accept cookies if he or she wishes. Therefore, the Data Subject has the possibility to delete some or all cookies from his/her computer or to block them at any time by using the web browser on his/her computer. If cookies are blocked, some parts of the Company’s website may not work or may not work properly for the Data Subject for technical reasons.

7.7 No personal data of the Customer is collected by means of cookies.

7.8 No information is provided to any third party during the recording of necessary cookies.

8.1 In addition to cookies, the Company may also use web beacons. This is a small graphic image of just one pixel that is delivered to the Data Subject’s computer as part of a web page or as an HTML e-mail message. Directly or through other service providers, these images are used by the Company in the form of online advertisements or on third party websites in order to know whether the user to whom the advertisement is displayed has placed an order, to analyse the movement of users and to optimise the services offered.

8.2 The Company may include web beacons in promotional emails or newsletters in order to determine whether emails have been opened. Some website indicators may be added by third party service providers to determine the effectiveness of the Company’s promotional campaigns or email communications. Web Site Indicators may be used to place a persistent cookie on the Data Subject’s computer. It will then be able to recognise the Data Subject’s computer each time he or she visits certain pages or sends e-mails, and to collect anonymous information about the traffic to such pages. The Company prohibits the use of web beacons to collect or access personal information.
