As our Website uses some the so called “cookies” for different purposes, this cookie policy explains what the cookies are and how they are used on the Website.

Some cookies (so called first-party cookies) are stored and controlled directly by us. Through such cookies, U-First collects and processes some of your personal data. This cookie policy, also pursuant to Section 122 of the Legislative Decree n. 196 of 30 June 2003 (the “Privacy Code”) and Section 14 of the EU Regulation 2016/679 (the “Regulation”), explains how we collect such data, for what purposes and what are your rights.

Other cookies (so called third-party cookies) are stored and controlled by third parties. This cookie policy contains links to the privacy policy published by such third parties, that you are invited to read carefully.

 

1 What are cookies and what are they used for?

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his/her terminal (usually to the browser). Such cookies are stored into the user’s terminal in order to be retransmitted to the same websites when the user accesses them again (so called “first-party cookies”).

During the browsing on a website, the user may receive on his/her terminal also cookies of different websites or web servers (so called “third-party cookies”); this happens because the visited websites contain items such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other websites that are hosted on a server other than the one on which the requested page is hosted. In other words, these are those cookies that are set by a website different from the one that the user is currently visiting.

The cookies may be limited to a single browsing session (so called “session cookies”) and, in such case, they automatically disable when the user closes the browser. Some other cookies may have a pre-set expiry date, and, in such case, they will remain stored and active in the user’s hard-disk until such expiry date, continuing to collect information in the course of the subsequent browsing sessions (so called “permanent cookies”).

Cookies are used for different purposes. Some of them are used to allow the user to visit a website and use its features (so called “technical cookies”). Some other cookies are used in order to collect statistical information, in aggregated or non-aggregated form, about the number of users who access a Website and how a website is used (so called “monitoring or analytics cookies”). Lastly, other cookies are used to track the user’s profile as a consumer and display advertising on a website which are consistent with your interests (so called “profiling cookies”).

For further details about these categories of cookies and in order for you to know which ones of them are used on the Website, please keep reading this cookie policy. Find out how they work and what they are used for and freely choose whether to consent to their use.

Other technical cookies are useful to allow the User to save some of his/her preferences (e.g. the language or the country of origin) without having to reset such preferences each time he/she visits the Website again (so called “functionality cookies”). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, because they remain stored in your computer even after the Interest browser has been closed, until the relevant expiry date or until you delete them from your browser.
