PURPOSE OF THIS COOKIE POLICY

The purpose of this Cookie Policy is to disclose the procedures followed for the collection of information using cookies. The information is provided by users, via their device utilised when navigating this website, owned by Calzedonia SpA, with administrative headquarters in Via Monte Baldo n. 20 Dossobuono di Villafranca (VR), Italy (hereinafter Calzedonia).

The owner of this website is also the Data Controller of personal data collected pursuant to European Regulation 679/2016 and any other applicable legislation regarding the protection of personal data.

This policy should be consulted in conjunction with the Calzedonia Privacy policy made available on this website and of which it forms an integral part.

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING THE USE OF COOKIES

We use cookies in some areas of our website. Cookies are files that store information on hard drives or browsers. They enable this site to monitor whether users have already visited the site, or enhance understanding of which of the site pages are most visited (as cookies show which pages are visited and for how long). Through this data, we are able to make the site meet our users’ requirements and facilitate their navigation of the site. For example, cookies allow us to ensure that information shown on our site on future visits responds to the users indicated preferences.

We strive to inform our users that they can configure their browser to accept or reject cookies, or to alert them to when a cookie has been sent. Every browser is different, therefore it is important that you verify how to modify your options for your specific browser. Calzedonia informs its users that when a site has been structured to use technical cookies, deactivating them could affect the functionality of the site and hinder its performance.

Below, we provide some links to online information on how to configure the most common browsers:


Calzedonia also informs users that they use cookies other than technical cookies, known as profiling cookies, these in fact, can always be deactivated by the user without leading to any reduced functionality of the website.

INFORMATION ON THE TYPE OF COOKIES AND CALZEDONIA'S POLICY OF USE

Calzedonia wishes to inform its users in detail, about the types of cookies used, the purpose and the way in which cookies are configured for users.

Calzedonia's policy of use of cookies mainly consists of:

  • non-systematic and generalised use, limited exclusively to specific circumstances and purposes;
  • the collection of users' informed consent where necessary, through an informative banner, published on the website page, shown to the user upon first access and the cookie policy being made permanently available within the website itself.
Cookies can be divided into two macro-categories: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies. Additionally, cookies can be distinguished between Calzedonia cookies and third-party cookies.

By continuing to read our policy, it is possible to understand the different types of cookies used by Calzedonia.

Technical cookies Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication, over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary, to provide a service requested by the user.
They are not used by Calzedonia for other purposes and can be divided into browsing or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, authentification to access restricted areas of the website); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site. Functionality cookies allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language) in order to improve the service provided by Calzedonia to its users.
For example, when a user has visited a page on one of the Calzedonia websites, customised it and wants it to be shown in the same way next time, Calzedonia can ensure this functionality by using a cookie.
There is no need to request the users' prior consent for the installation of these cookies.

Profiling cookies Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used by Calzedonia in order to send advertising messages that correspond with the preferences expressed by the user during their web browsing.
This means that we also use them to limit the number of times the user views a particular advertisement. For Calzedonia it means communicating more effectively and in order for the user to receive advertising that corresponds to their preferences. Whilst the user browses websites owned by Calzedonia, the profiling cookies, also called promotional or targeting cookies, enable Calzedonia to confirm that the user is looking at Calzedonia advertisements and to show them promotional content which may be of interest based on what has previously been visited.

Due to the possible invasiveness that this type of cookie can have on users' privacy, prior informed user consent is necessary and the Calzedonia policy conforms to this preventive compliance for the use of cookies.

Promotional cookies, which can also be permanent, can be not only from Calzedonia (known as first-party cookies) but also from a third party:

  • First Party Cookies
    These are cookies managed directly by Calzedonia as the owner of the site, for these cookies configuration and potential deactivation instructions are provided directly by us.

  • Third Party Cookies
    These are cookies managed by a third party other than Calzedonia. For these cookies, Calzedonia refers to configuration and potential deactivation instructions as indicated directly by the third party in question, by redirecting the user (for example through a link) to the third party's site, where configuration instructions are available.

Finally, Calzedonia informs users that the different types of cookies can have a specific duration: temporary or permanent.

Cookies with temporary duration, known as session cookies, are deleted and disappear from the device when the user leaves the website and closes the navigation browser.

Whilst permanent cookies are cookies that remain on the device even after the user has left the website, until they are deleted or until their expiry date is reached. In addition to session cookies, permanent ones are also used on the Calzedonia site for example, to allow users to find preferences they have set on the site on subsequent visits (e.g. their wishlist).

In the table below the user can determine whether each type of cookie used on this site, is a temporary or permanent cookie.
