Browsing data

During their normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire some personal data, the transmission of which is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected with the intent of associating it with identified users, but by its very nature could lead to the identification of users through processing and through association with data held by third parties. This category of data includes: the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by persons connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc.), and other parameters relating to the User’s operating system and IT environment. These data are only used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning (see also the section on Cookies). The data could be used for ascertaining responsibility in the event of hypothetical cybercrimes involving the website. Personal data provided voluntarily by the User may also be processed.



Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Each time a user returns, the cookies are sent to the website that created them (first-party cookies) or to another website that recognises them (third-party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise the user’s device. They have various purposes: for example, to ensure users can browse efficiently between pages, to remember their favourite sites, and in general to improve the browsing experience. They also help to ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to the user and his/her personal interests. Cookies can be divided into different categories in line with their function and purpose: technical cookies, profiling cookies and third-party cookies.


Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the user’s consent. These cookies are essential to allow one to browse a website and use all its functions. Such cookies are absolutely vital to the operations of a website; without them, it could not provide any services or functions, and browsing would not be as smooth or easy as it should be. A cookie of this type is used to record a user’s decision on the use of cookies on the website. This category also includes performance cookies, sometimes called analytics cookies. These are cookies that collect information about the use that a user makes of a website, and that enable improvements to its functioning. For example, performance cookies show us which pages are most frequently visited, allow us to see recurring patterns of use of the website, help us to understand any difficulties the user may encounter when using the website, and show the effectiveness of advertising published on the site. Technical cookies are essential and cannot be disabled using the functions of this website. In general, cookies can be completely disabled in your browser at any time.

Cieffe S.r.l. uses technical cookies.


Third-party Cookies

Cieffe S.r.l. may also use cookies from other websites or web servers (so-called “third-party” cookies): this occurs because the site may contain elements such as images, maps, sounds, and specific links to web pages of other domains, present on servers other than the one hosting the page required by the user. In other words, these cookies are set up by website or server managers other than those responsible for the Cieffe S.r.l. site. These cookies are not directly controlled by the Cieffe S.r.l. website. To revoke consent in this instance, you should refer to the relevant information on the third-party websites. Specifically, the most commonly used third-party cookies are those that relate to the use of social media plugins and the use of data collected through Google Analytics.


Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) are erased when the user closes the browser or logs out. Other cookies “outlast” the closing of the browser and remain available for future visits. These cookies are called “persistent” and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases, they have a fixed expiration date, in others their duration is unlimited. Cieffe S.r.l. uses persistent and non-persistent cookies.

Managing cookies

You can also manage cookies through your browser settings. You can accept or refuse cookies at any time, or you may decide to set up an alert before accepting any cookies from the sites you have visited. You should note, however, that changing your settings will only affect that particular browser and PC. If you want this to extend to other devices, you will need to repeat the operation on each individual browser. We should also remind you that, if you disable certain cookies, the website may not be able to provide you with targeted services.
