What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user's device (usually to the web browser) by visited websites; they are stored in the user's device to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's subsequent visits to those websites.
Cookies do not damage your device and may allow us to provide you with a faster and better navigation (their purposes may range from IT authentication to the storage of information on user configurations in accessing a given server, etc.) on our Site. Cookies are present as a rule in substantial numbers in each user's browser and at times they remain stored after you leave our site.
Cookies may be distinguished into two major group: "technical" cookies and "advertising and marketing" cookies.
a. Technical Cookies, which are those used exclusively for better running the site from a technical point of view, carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to provide a service that has been explicitly requested by the user. Technical cookies can be grouped into browsing or session cookies, which allow users to navigate and use a website (e.g. to purchase items online or authenticate themselves to access certain sections); analytics cookies, which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the Site manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website; functional cookies, which allow users to navigate as a function of certain pre-determined criteria such as language or products to be purchased so as to improve the quality of service. Users' prior consent is not necessary to install these cookies but the user must be made aware of their presence and may object to their installation.
b. Advertising and marketing cookies
Marketing cookies are aimed to send commercial proposals following a certain navigations on a website while profiling cookies are used to create user profiles to send ads messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation.
This information might be shared with third parties, i.e. the entities involved in the installation of cookies on the user's terminal, which are linked to Ferrero by contractual means in order to protect your rights; this may happen for example for social network plug-ins. In such cases our site will connect to the social network which may use your personal data in order to show tailored advertising messages on different sites which are not under Ferrero's control.
