Additionally, we carry out the activity of digital advertising and we are a third party in relation to the website and/or a mobile app/website where you are coming from (the “Third Party Data Source”).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by a user send directly to its terminal (usually, to the browser), where they are memorised to be transmitted to the same websites during the next visit (the so called first party cookies). During the web surfing of a website, a user may receive on its terminal also third-party cookies; this happens because there may be elements on the visited website, such as images, maps, sounds, links to specific web pages of other domains that are on servers other than the server on which the requested page is placed. In other words, such cookies are set up on a website other than the one that is currently visited.

Cookies are useful for several reasons. From a technical point of view, they allow web pages to work more efficiently and adapted to the User’s preferences, such as storing their language or the currency of their country. In addition, they help those responsible for the websites to improve the services they offer, thanks to the statistical information they collect through them all. Finally, they help to make the advertising we display more efficient.
