Cookies are very small files that are saved on your device and that serve to store specific settings and data necessary for the exchange with our system through your browser. We distinguish two types of cookies: the so-called "session-cookies", which are deleted as soon as you close your browser and temporary / permanent cookies, which are stored on your device for an extended period or permanently.
1 - WHAT ARE COOKIES
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer and stores information about how you use our website, in order to provide you the best online experience possible. A cookie remembers what you have done, including the products you have placed in your cart, your preferences, your account login information, and allows for several other functionalities such as sharing pages on social networks. Furthermore, cookies allow us to understand how internet users navigate on our website, what works and what does not, and how to make continuous improvements accordingly.
There are two main categories of cookies: Technical Cookies and Profiling Cookies.
Technical Cookies are used to improve the user experience while Profiling Cookies are aimed at creating profiles on the user and are used in order to send specific advertising messages according with the preferences shown by the user while browsing.
Cookies can be:
temporary, or linked to the specific browsing session and used to connect the actions performed during the same session but which are removed from the computer when the browser is closed;
permanent, or used to store information so as to remind them of subsequent sessions. These Technical cookies
Technical Cookies, in compliance with the GDPR, do not require any consent, therefore they are installed automatically following the simple access to the site / application:
deait_user_logged: used for user profile management;
SESS_ID: used to manage each user session;
comment_info_ID: used for comment validation;
force_no_mobile: used to manage access to the mobile version of the site;
__utma: this cookie is able to record the number of accesses to the site of each user and the dates of the first and last visit. Google Analytics uses this cookie to calculate, for example, the days and the number of accesses required by the user to complete an order starting from the first access;
__utmb, __utmc: These two cookies work together and serve to record the duration of a visit. The _utmb cookie records the landing on the site / application while the _utmc cookie records the disconnection;
__utmt: Allows Google Analytics to adjust the size and response of its servers to a certain amount of data in order to avoid overloads and inefficiencies;
__utmz: tracks the user's geographical origin, records which search engine he used, and which "Keyword" keyword used to access the site;
__utmt, __utmt_area: allows you to measure performance.
A cookie is not a computer program and cannot be used to circulate viruses, so a cookie cannot be dangerous for your device.
Cookies are used primarily to make our offering simple for the user, more efficient and safer. Thanks to these files is, for instance, possible to display on the page information that are better suited to your interests. The sole purpose of these cookies is to adjust BVMILANO’s offer to your needs as a customer and make your navigation as comfortable as possible.
No personal data is saved in the cookies that ILC S.r.l. uses on its website www.bvmilano.com, therefore all cookies used are not attributable to a person and they are not referable to you in any way. When the cookies are activated, an identification code is assigned. At no time will it be possible to redirect this code to your personal data and at no time and for any reason we will try to do so. Name, IP address and similar data that could lead back to you, will never be used. With cookies we can only receive information linked to the pseudonym and concerning exclusively the experience of using our website.
In most cases, there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this website. It is recommended that you leave on all cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not, in case they are used to provide a service that you use.
3 - THIRD PARTY COOKIES
For example, our website uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted “analytic solution” on the web for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience.
For more information on Google Analytics cookies, see the official Google Analytics page.
From time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent user experience whilst ensuring we understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.
As we sell products it's important for us to understand statistics about how many of the visitors to our site actually make a purchase and as such this is the kind of data that these cookies will track. This is important to you as it means that we can accurately make business predictions that allow us to monitor our advertising and product costs to ensure the best possible price.
We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways. For these functions most social media sites will set cookies through our site which may be used to enhance your profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.
Therefore, be aware that when you visit our site, cookies from associated companies will be saved on your hard drive.
Even the cookies of the associated companies do not contain personal data. Through a user ID, only data in the form of pseudonym is detected. During this process, some of our advertising partners also collect information on which pages you have already visited or which products you have been interested in, to show you the information that best matches your interests. This data in the form of a pseudonym will not be linked to your personal data at any time. They are only meant to help our advertising partners to deal with advertising that may actually interest you.
4 - DISABLING COOKIES
