COOKIES

Our cookie policy

This policy aims to explain how this website uses cookies to provide clear and relevant information to allow you to make choices to control what happens when you access the site. This policy uses the term ‘cookie’ to refer to cookies and similar technologies covered by law (such as, for example, Local Shared Objects – commonly referred to as ‘flash cookies’, web beacons or web bugs, including clear gifs).

The information collected concerns data that may allow the identification of users/visitors through association and processing with data held by third parties (such as, for example, IP addresses and domain names of computers used by people who connect to the website). These data are used for statistical purposes only.

This document is an integral and substantial part of the Privacy Policy and the notice contained therein issued pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. We therefore invite you to read that document.

Applicable law – This subject is regulated by European Directive 2002/58/EC – subsequently amended by Directive 2009/136/EC and transposed by the national laws of the Member States of the European Union – which requires us to inform you and obtain your consent for the use of cookies and similar technologies.

What is a cookie – A cookie is a small text file, usually consisting of letters and numbers, downloaded onto your device when you access the website. Cookies are then sent to the original site at each subsequent visit.

This information may relate to you, your preferences or the device you use to access the site (computer, tablet or mobile phone) and is primarily used to tailor the functioning of the site to your expectations or to collect data for statistical purposes.

The use of cookies and similar technologies has long been common practice, because cookies are important in the provision of many online services. The use of these technologies is not, therefore, prohibited by law but requires that you be informed about the cookies and given the opportunity to accept them or not.

Different types of cookies – Cookies are classified differently according to the aspect considered. With regard to the duration of the cookies, a distinction is made between session and persistent cookies. 

Session cookies – Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (i.e., they last from when you open the browser window until you exit the browser). They allow websites to track your actions during a browser session. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what you have put in your shopping cart while browsing a site. They can also be used for security when you access internet banking services or to facilitate the use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session.

The use of cookies and similar technologies has long been common practice, because cookies are important in the provision of many online services. The use of these technologies is not, therefore, prohibited by law but requires that you be informed about the cookies and given the opportunity to accept them or not.

Persistent cookies – These cookies can be stored longer than a session. They are stored on your device between different browser sessions and enable your actions in a website to be remembered. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering your preferences and choices when using a site (or in some cases through different websites).

“First-party” and “third-party” cookies – With reference to the party setting the cookie, a distinction is made between first-party and third-party cookies. Whether a cookie is a “first-party” or “third-party” cookie is strictly linked to the website or domain that uses that cookie. “First-party” cookies are cookies set by the website visited by you, in other words the site displayed in the URL window: in our case, this means the cookies set by this website of the Controller. “Third-party” cookies are cookies set by a different domain from the one visited by you: i.e., cookies set by websites different from the website of this Controller. If you visit a website (such as this one) and a third-party company sets a cookie through this website, that cookie is a “third-party” cookie.

Technical cookies – Technical cookies are necessary for communication on the electronic network and are usually installed directly by the Controller or operator of the website. They are used for the proper functioning of the website or to improve the service provided to you. The installation of these cookies does not require your prior consent, but you must be informed of their presence.

Profiling cookies – We use cookies on this site that enable us to understand how visitors use the site, in order to be able to assess and improve its functioning. Your personal data will not be accessible to us, except in anonymous and aggregate form. We use Google Analytics cookies for this purpose.

Data Controller – IBSA FARMACEUTICI ITALIA S.R.L., as identified in the Privacy Policy, is the Data Controller –  and is liable –  solely for its own cookies, i.e. “first party” cookies. All other cookies, i.e. “third-party” cookies, are under the control of the companies that own them.
