What a cookies is

A cookie is a little text file, generally made up with numbers and types, downloaded on a device, when the user accesses to the website. Cookies are then sent to the original website after every subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize the device of a user.

The use of cookies and of similar technology has been for a long time a common technology, since that cookies are important for the provision of many online services. The use of this technology is not forbidden by the law, then, but it requires the user to be informed about cookies and to be offered him the possibility of acceptig them or not.

Cookies of different kinds

Session and permanent cookies

Cookies can expire at the end of a session of the browser (that is from when a user opens a window of the browser until he leaves the browser)  or they can be stored for a longer time.

Session cookies – they allow websites to connect the actions of a user during a session of the browser. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as reminding to a user what he has put in hi scart while surfing a website. They may also be used for safety, when a user accesses the Internet banking or to facilitate the use of the webmail. These session cookies expire after a session of the browser.

The use of the so called session cookies (which, in any case, are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and are automatically cancelled as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of data (made up with by casual numbers generated by the server) which identify the specific session and are necessary for allowing a safe and efficient surfing. The so called sesson cookies used in this website avoid the use of other computer techniques being potentially prejudicial to the users’ privacy of surfing.

Persistent cookies – they are stored on the users’ device between different browser sessions and allow to remind the user’s actions in a website. The persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, among which we remember the preferences and choices of users when they use a website (or in some cases through different websites).

“First” and “third” party cookies” – The circumstance for which a cookie is of “first” or of “third” party is strictly connected with the website or the domain which uses that specific cookie. The “first party” cookies are essentially the cookies , set by the same website visited by the user- that is the website viewed in the URL window: in our case, the cookies set by Lever Touch s.r.l. The cookies of “third parties” are the cookies that are set by a domain different by the one visited by the user: that is the cookies that are set by websites different from Lever Touch S.r.l.. If a user visits a website (like https://www.levertouch.com/it/get-in-touch/) and a third party company sets a cookie through https://www.levertouch.com/it/get-in-touch/, this specific cookie is a “third party”cookie.

Consent for cookies

Some cookies are strictly necessary for the right working of the Internet and do not require the user’s consent, such as for example those guaranteeing that the content of a page is uploaded rapidly and efficiently, the distribution of the workload between different computers or those ensuring safety.

Other cookies are also quite necessary or important, but they are not strictly unavoidable and then, they require the user’s consent.

This website uses different methods for collecting the user’s consent: one method is ticking the specific box on the cookie banner published on the website access  page, which shows the use of cookies.

The browser settings represent another means for giving the consent or, otherwise, for refusing cookies; the user can set the browser so that he is informed about the presence of cookies, and then he is able to decide whether to accept cookies or not. It is also possible to automatically refuse all cookies, by setting the special option on the browser.
