5. Classification of Cookies

For the origin:

Technical Cookies and Third Party Cookies

We can send "Il Nocciolaio" cookies to your device through our website. The cookies we send are called technical cookies. Technical cookies are cookies that belong to the website that created them. The use of these cookies allows us to run the website efficiently. We also allow third parties to send cookies to your device. The difference between a website technical cookie and a third-party cookie concerns the control by the person who sends the cookie. Even if we allow third parties to access the website to send cookies to the User's device, we have no control over the information provided by cookies, and we do not have access to such data. This information is totally controlled by third parties, as described in the extended privacy policy above.

For the duration:

Session cookies and persistent cookies

Our website can send session and persistent cookies to your device. While the difference between a Technical cookie and a third-party cookie concerns the person who controls the initial sending of the cookie on your device, the difference between a session cookie and a persistent cookie regards the different period of time for which a cookie operates. Session cookies are cookies that typically last until you close your internet browser. When your browser session ends, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies, as the name itself indicates, are constant cookies and continue to operate after you close your browser. This allows faster and easier access to our website. For example, a persistent cookie that our website reads from your device is the language chosen for navigation. After the cookie is sent, you can be automatically directed to the website in the chosen language when you access the Website in the future.
