Cookie Policy

This section is dedicated to our policy for managing cookies on the website.
It has been designed to provide you with information on the origin and use of browsing data processed when you use our website, and to inform you on your rights.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

When you use our website, we may, depending on your choice, place a text file on your terminal (computer, smart phone or tablet) via the web browser.

This text file is a cookie. Throughout the period of validity or registration, it will enable Acqua di Parma S.r.l. to identify your terminal during subsequent visits.

Only the entity issuing the cookies is able to read or modify the information they contain.

Below you will find information about the cookies that may be placed on your terminal when you visit the pages of the website, either by Acqua di Parma S.r.l., or by third parties, together with ways in which you can delete or refuse installation of these cookies.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE COOKIES ISSUED ON WWW.ACQUADIPARMA.COM?

There are several types of cookies, some of which are issued directly by Acqua di Parma S.r.l. and its service providers, whilst others may be issued by third parties.

I. Cookies issued by Acqua di Parma S.r.l. and its service providers

Different types of cookies may be placed on your terminal whilst you are browsing on our website:

(i) "Essential" cookies

These cookies are essential for browsing on our website, especially for the functioning of the order process.

Deletion of these cookies may cause problems with browsing on our website and make it impossible for you to place an order.

These cookies are also necessary for tracking the activity of Acqua di Parma S.r.l..

They may be installed on your terminal by Acqua di Parma S.r.l. or by its service providers.

(ii) "Analysis and Customisation" cookies

These cookies are not essential to browsing on our website, but may help you, for example, to search more effectively and optimise your purchasing experience and help us better target your requirements, improve our offer and optimise the functioning of our website.

(iii) "Advertising" cookies

Cookies may also be used for advertising purposes. These cookies ensure that the adverts you see are the most relevant to you.

What is the benefit of seeing special offers and advertising tailored to your browsing preferences?

The aim is to show you the most relevant offers and advertising. As such, cookie technology enables us to display content, in real-time, that is best suited to your fields of interest, as deduced from your browsing history on our website.

The interest you show in content displayed on your terminal when you consult a website often determines the advertising resources of this site, enabling it to provide its services, which are often supplied free of charge to users. You doubtless prefer to see offers and advertising that are relevant to you, rather than content that is of no interest to you at all. Similarly, both Acqua di Parma S.r.l. and advertisers want their offers and advertising to be shown to Internet users that are likely to be interested in them.

Important information if you share your terminal with other users

If your terminal is used by several people or when a single terminal has more than one type of browser software, we cannot be sure that the services and advertising sent to your terminal will match your use of the terminal, rather than that of another user.

In this case, sharing use of your terminal with others and deciding your browser cookie settings are your free choice and your responsibility.

II. Cookies issued by third-party companies

The issue and use of cookies by third parties on our website are subject to the privacy policies provided by these third parties.

These cookies are not essential to browsing on our website.

On our website, we may include computer applications from third parties that enable you to share our website content with others, inform others that you have been consulting our website or notify them of your opinion concerning content on our site. This particularly concerns use of the "Share" and "Like" buttons featured on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or through Youtube Widget Video, Google Analytics etc.

The social network providing these application buttons is likely to identify you via this button, even if you have not used it when browsing our website.

Indeed, this type of application button can enable the social network concerned to track your browsing on our website, simply because your account on the social network in question is enabled on your terminal (a session is open) whilst you are browsing our website.

We have no control over how social networks collect information regarding your browsing on our website and associated with the personal data they hold.

We encourage you to read the privacy policies of the social networks to learn about the purpose, especially advertising, of any browsing information they may collect via these application buttons.

These privacy policies should enable you to exercise your choices with respect to these social networks, in particular by changing your account settings.

Visit the websites of the aforementioned social networks for more information about their privacy policies.

III. Managing the cookies placed in your web browser

You can decide whether to allow cookies to be installed on your terminal.

The choices offered to you by your browser software (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.).

You can adjust your browser settings as you wish, so that cookies are either (a) accepted and registered on your terminal or (b) refused.

a. Agreeing to Cookies

If your browser software is set to accept the registration of cookies on your terminal, the cookies embedded in the pages and content you have consulted will automatically be registered on your terminal.

b. Refusing Cookies

You can set your browser software so that:

  • you are regularly asked if you wish to accept or refuse cookies before a cookie can be registered;
  • you systematically refuse the registration of cookies on your terminal.

Important: Any adjustments you may make to the settings in your browser software concerning the acceptance or refusal of essential cookies may modify your browsing on the Internet and your terms of access to certain services requiring use of these cookies.

If you choose to refuse the registration of cookies on your terminal or if you delete cookies that are already registered, we decline all responsibility for any consequences relating to the degraded performance of our services resulting from the fact we are unable to register or consult the cookies required for their performance and which you have refused or deleted.

How to exercise your choice, depending on your browser

Settings vary from one type of browser software to another. Details can generally be found in your browser software help menu. We therefore encourage you to look at your settings to find out how you can make choices regarding cookies.
