How we use the cookies
Many cookies on our websites perform essential functions and allow users to move around the sites and use their features; for example, when you log into your SICCE account, cookies remember the information recorded there. In this policy these cookies are referred to as "strictly necessary cookies".
Other cookies are not essential but they help us understand how users use our sites, allowing us to improve our online activities. For this purpose we use Web Analytics tools. Cookies are used to detect the loading times of our sites, how they are used and what information is displayed most. This allows us to improve how our sites work, for example by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily. Cookies also help identify the parts of the sites that are not working optimally, allowing us to intervene and improve them. In this policy these cookies are referred to as "performance cookies".
Other cookies allow our websites to recognize users who have already visited them. This allows us to remember the choices you make (for example your name, language or the geographical area in which you are located) and offer you more efficient and personalized functions. In this policy these cookies are referred to as "functionality cookies".
Another type of cookie informs us about the effectiveness of our online advertising and the optimal placement of our online advertisements. These cookies allow us to know if one of our advertisements on another website such as Google or Yahoo has brought visitors to the SICCE site.
Cookies of this type also help us to reach the people most interested in SICCE products. Thus, once you visit a SICCE site, you may see our advertising on other sites. This practice is known as re-marketing or behavioral advertising and serves to improve the relevance of our advertising to your interests. In this policy these cookies are referred to as "advertising cookies".
The information collected by the cookies is also linked to the SICCE customer data we have. For example, we combine the information collected by cookies with personal data communicated by users or with those collected by SICCE products for profiling and statistical analysis of the popularity of products, user behavior in the use of our sites and apps. or the ways in which our products are used.
Cookies are divided into two general categories: first-party cookies (generated by SICCE) and third-party cookies (generated by others).
These cookies are generated by SICCE. In most cases they enable essential features of our site. They also include cookies for Web Analytics, which we use to understand how users use our sites, in order to improve them.Third party cookies
Third-party cookies are not generated by SICCE, but by some selected subjects with whom we collaborate. Some of them enable useful services, such as online questionnaires or real-time chat (which allows you to ask questions to SICCE experts). Others could be generated by advertising networks with which we collaborate to keep track of users' browsing activities on the network, in order to place our online advertisements in the most suitable spaces. In the following section on "Cookie Management", we explain how to change your settings so that third parties (including advertisers) know that you do not want to keep track of your web browsing activities.
Social media cookies
Some pages of our websites allow you to share our content on social media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tik Toc. Sometimes we may post videos from sites like YouTube. These sites generate their own cookies, which we do not control. Social media sites may have their own cookie policies, which, if available, are usually posted on the sites themselves. We recommend that you carefully review these cookie policies to decide whether to accept them or not.
The cookies that fall into the three categories described above can be further divided into session cookies or persistent cookies.
Session cookies are deleted when the browser is closed (or after a certain period of user inactivity). We use them on our e-commerce sites to allow you to continue browsing without losing the items you have placed in your cart.
Questi cookie persistono anche dopo la chiusura del browser. Servono a “ricordare” l’utente, che non dovrà quindi reimmettere dati di accesso e password ogni volta che torna a visitare il sito.
MANAGEMENT OF COOKIES
All popular browsers allow the management of cookies.
You can choose to accept or reject all or some types of cookies.
What happens if I refuse all cookies?
If you disable cookies you will still be able to access parts of our sites, but some useful sections will not work. For example, you will not be able to log in and access your account, make purchases or register a SICCE guarantee online.
