Which cookies do SAPHIR use and for what purposes?
SAPHIR uses various types of cookies, each of which has a specific function.
NAVIGATION OR TECHNICAL COOKIES
Navigation cookies are needed for the correct functioning of the website. From the first access, they allow the user to view content on his/her device by recognising the language and market of the country from which he/she has connected. If the user is registered, cookies allow he/she to be recognised and to access the services offered and the dedicated areas.
Functional cookies are not essential to the functioning of the website, but rather improve navigation experience. These cookies allow the user to be recognised the next time he/she accesses the website, so that he/she does not have to enter the requested information each time. This happens through a precise request of the user (e.g. Remember me). Furthermore, if the user adds items to the Shopping Bag and closes the session without completing the purchase and without eliminating those items, functional cookies allow the user to continue the shopping experience the next time he/she accesses the website, finding the same selected articles (within a limited period).
Analytical cookies are used to collect aggregate information regarding the details of the user's navigation on the website. They can be data regarding the number of visitors, the most visited pages and the time spent on the website. The results of these analyses are anonymous and are exclusively treated for statistical purposes only. For more information please read here https://policies.google.com/technologies/types.
