What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small data file containing small amounts of information that can be sent to the browser used and is stored on the user’s device when visiting certain websites such as “audepart.com”. Cookies are used to allow the site to work properly and improve its performance by making estimates on statistical data and patterns of uses (for example by recording number of visits, most visited sections etc.). Cookies also provide information to the site owner for statistical or advertising purposes, mainly to personalise the browsing experience based on the final user’s preferences (e.g. remembering the language and currency that have been set, recognising the user on future visits, etc.). Our Site uses various types of cookies, based on their characteristics and functions, and they can stay on the user’s device for different periods of time. “Session cookies”, are temporary cookie files which are automatically erased when the browser is closed, while “persistent cookies”, are permanently placed on the user’s device memory.
Method of acceptance
In most cases, cookies cannot be deployed without prior consent of the user. When visiting our Site for the first time, a pop up cookie banner containing an explanation about cookies will appear on your screen. By clicking on the “OK” button, “close” on the banner with the “X” button, browsing the page or clicking anywhere in the internal content of the site’s pages, the Manager deem you to have consented to non-essential cookies unless you have disabled them using your browser setting.
According to applicable law, we can store cookies on your device without your express consent if they are strictly essential for the functioning of our Site and in order to provide our services to users. For all other types of cookies, the user’s prior consent to collect cookie is legally required.
Which cookies are used and for what purposes?
The site uses different kinds of first-party cookies (cookies created and managed by the Manager) and the third-parties’ cookies (cookies created and managed by third parties based on their own privacy policies and which are not under the Manager’s control) listed below.
Each type of cookies used on our Site has its own function as summarized in the table below:
|TYPE OF COOKIE||FUNCTION|
|Navigation Cookies||Starting with the first access, these cookies allow the site to work properly and make it possible for the user to view content on his/her device by recognising the language and market of the country from which the user is connected. They also make it possible to recognise registered users and allow them to access services in dedicated areas. Navigation cookies are technical cookies and are necessary for the site to function.|
|Functional Cookies||Based on the user’s express request, these cookies make it possible to recognise the user on subsequent visits, so that he/she does not have to re-enter his/her data on each visit (e.g.: “Remember me next time”). If the final user places articles in his/her cart and ends the session without completing the purchase and without removing them, these cookies make it possible to continue shopping the next time the user accesses the site (within a limited period of time), by keeping track of the cart. Functional cookies are not essential for the site to work, but improve navigation quality and the navigation experience.|
|Analytical Cookies||First-party cookies of this type are owned by the Manager and are used to collect anonymous, aggregated data. These cookies are used to produce statistical analyses of how users navigate the site. The Manager uses the results of these analyses anonymously and solely for statistical purposes.|
|First- and Third-party Marketing and Profiling Cookies||These cookies are intended to create profiles about the user to send commercial messages that match preferences expressed during the visit or to improve the navigation experience. While the final user navigates the site, these cookies are useful for showing him/her products of interest or that are similar to those the user viewed. Third-party cookies are cookies sent by third-party companies. These cookies make it possible to offer a business proposal on other affiliated websites (retargeting). The Manager has no control over the information provided by third-party cookies and has no access to that data. This information is controlled in its entirety by the third-party companies, as described in their respective policies.|
|Social Network Cookies||These cookies are necessary to allow the final user’s social media account to interact with the site. For example, they are necessary to express “likes” and share them on social media. Social network cookies are not necessary for navigation. For additional information about social networks’ cookie use policies, their respective privacy and cookie policies can be consulted as indicated below: Facebook: https://it-it.facebook.com/about/privacy/Google: http://www.google.com/intl/it/policies/privacy/Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/1896641480634370?ref=ig YouTube: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/7671399?p=privacy_guidelines&hl=it|
