Cookie policy – Manifattura del Seveso S.p.A.

Cookies consist of information that a server can send to a PC, smartphone, or tablet when a user visits a website, or uses social networks. The same server that transmitted the cookies, can then read and record any cookies that are found the user’s PC, smartphone, or tablet to get various types of information.

Cookies have different functions: in many cases they are used because they make navigation easier and faster, as happens with technical cookies, which are used, for example, to save navigation preferences (language, shopping cart, etc.). In other cases, however, cookies are used to monitor users while browsing; so-called profiling cookies record information on what is purchased or on what the user may want to purchase, by analyzing the articles read, hobbies, and travel, to personalize advertising that is shown when an e-mail is opened, or when browsing social networks. There are also third-party cookies, namely, information that is recorded by different sites than those that are visited and that is used for profiling purposes. Further information can be found on the Privacy Guarantor’s website, at the following address:

We remind you that, by proceeding to navigate this website, or by clicking the “Accept” button on the summary privacy notice banner, you acknowledge having read and accepted the Privacy policy disclaimer and this Cookie policy thus consenting to the use of cookies on this website.

Cookies that may be used

There are two types of cookies that may be used on this website, these are: ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’.

  • ‘Session Cookies’ are not stored permanently on the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date and, based on this, the browser is able to identify them as such.
  • ‘Persistent Cookies’, rather than disappearing when the browser is closed, as is the case with session cookies, expire on a specific date, or after a certain period of time. This means that, for the entire life of the cookies, your information will be transmitted to the server every time that you visit the website, or whenever you view a resource belonging to that site on another site. (for example, an advertisement). For this reason, persistent cookies can be used by advertisers to record information about a user’s web browsing habits over an extended period of time. However, they are also used for “legitimate” reasons, such as keeping users logged in to their website account, in order to avoid having to enter their access credentials every time they visit.

Cookies used by this website

Technical cookies
Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the user’s consent. These cookies are essential to allow the user to browse a website and use all of its functions. Without these cookies, which are absolutely necessary, a website would not be able to provide some services or features, and navigation would not be as simple and easy as it should be. Cookies of this type are also used to store the user’s decision about the use of cookies on our website. Other technical cookies are, for example, those that allow to save preferences related to language or to the shopping cart.

  • WordPress cookies – This website has been developed using the WordPress CMS, therefore, it uses the cookies implemented by such a CMS.

Profiling cookies

This implies the possibility of monitoring the browsing history of the user, and is often used by advertisers, in an attempt to serve relevant and personalized ads for each user. Advertisers can then use these cookies to build a user’s browsing history for all websites that have ads from the same advertiser. Most modern web browsers contain privacy settings that are able to block third-party cookies. These cookies are sent from third-party domains external to this website.
