Cookie Policy

We care about your privacy: always!

Ownership considerations: Gian Luigi and Claudio Baiardo

Without prejudice to what is necessary to write by law below, often complying with boring bureaucratic and administrative terms, we would like to underline that for us the relationship with the customer is absolutely friendly and confidential. For over 20 years we have been working every day to guarantee our customers the best possible shopping and consumption experience.

For us, cookies are a way to improve the customer's browsing experience, personalizing it and making it more in line with their tastes and preferences in order to optimize their stay on our site with a customer journey that is as pleasant as possible : nothing more

We know that we live in a world that is increasingly connected and digital today and that Privacy understood in the spirit of the legislator is often disregarded and fails to be substantial.

We are only interested in staying in touch with customers who enjoy this absolutely friendly relationship and for this reason we always tend to scrupulously observe the wishes of those who relate to us.

Therefore, for us there are no problems (which we prevent if possible) but solutions that we always apply to ensure that our customer is satisfied and happy!

This is the philosophy that has characterized our family business for over 20 years and which has allowed us to have over 40,000 satisfied families today.

Why do cookies exist? Find out what you need to know

Have you ever noticed that if you go to an e-commerce site and add products to your shopping cart, even if you interrupt the session and return to the site after some time, the items remain in your cart? This convenience is possible thanks to the famous cookies. Cookies allow sites to offer users personalized experiences by storing small amounts of information about them.

If cookies did not exist, every time you visit a new page of a site you would have to re-select your preferences, such as language and currency, as well as confirm that you are a person and not a robot. So, why do we hear that cookies are harmful?

The data stored in cookies is not dangerous in itself, it is not malware. The problem is how the website can use that data, potentially violating the user's privacy. Cybercriminals can use the information contained in cookies to extract your browsing history. As a responsible user of the Web, it is important that you know how to distinguish between the cookies to allow and those that it is preferable to block, according to your needs.

What are cookies?

Cookies are fragments of user data stored on the computer and used to improve navigation Cookies, also known as HTTP, web, Internet or browser cookies, are created by the server and sent to your browsers. The exchange of information allows sites to recognize your computer and send it personalized information based on your sessions.

Types of cookies

In theory, cookies are a good thing. Personalizing navigation means offering users a simpler and more pleasant experience. Conversely, the worst version of this technology is able to replicate the information of a cookie even after it has been removed.

The great variety of cookies in the world of the web makes it difficult to classify them. However, it is possible to draw up a general taxonomy by separating them into different categories.

The main attribute by which we can divide cookies is their "life cycle", which allows us to distinguish them in:

  • session cookies:these 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 on the basis of this the browser is able to identify them as such.
  • Cookies persistent: instead of disappearing when the browser is closed, as is the case for session cookies, persistent cookies expire on a specific date or after a specific period of time. This means that, for the entire lifespan of the cookie (which can be long or short depending on the expiry date set by its creators), its information will be transmitted to the server each time the user visits the website, or whenever the user views a resource belonging to that site from another site (such as 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 into their accounts on websites, in order to avoid entering credentials for accessing websites at each visit).
  • Other cookies Evercookies, zombie cookies and supercookiesThese, in reality, are not real cookies. They are not data backups, but routines that can self-replicate even after the browser cache has been emptied. When you delete one, they are often able to install copies of themselves in another location. This is the case of video software for browsers such as Microsoft Silverlight or Adobe Flash, which allow access to the same data from multiple locations.

It is then possible to classify cookies based on the "origin" in:

  • First-party cookies: normally, the domain attribute of a cookie will correspond to the domain that is displayed in the address bar of the web browser; these are cookies sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting. This is called a first-party cookie. They can be both persistent and session; they are managed directly by the owner and/or manager of the site and are used, for example, to guarantee its technical functioning or keep track of preferences expressed regarding the use of the site itself.
  • Third-party cookies: third-party cookies belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar.These types of cookies generally appear when web pages contain content, such as advertising banners, from external websites. This implies the possibility of monitoring the user's browsing history, and is often used by advertisers in an attempt to serve ads that are relevant and personalized to each user. For example, suppose a user visits This website contains an ad from, which, once downloaded, sets a cookie that belongs to the advertising domain ( Then, the user visits another website,, which also contains an ad from, and which also sets a cookie belonging to that domain ( Eventually, both of these cookies will be sent to the seller when you load their advertisements or visit their website. The advertiser can then use these cookies to build a browsing history of users across all sites that have this advertiser's ads. Most modern web browsers contain privacy settings that are able to block third-party cookies.

Finally, it is possible to distinguish them from the point of view of "use" (or purpose) in:

  • Cookies technical: are used for navigation (as they are functionally necessary for page scrolling, content consultation, service provision) and to facilitate access and use of the site by the user. The cookies are essential, for example, for accessing Google or Facebook without having to log in to all sessions. They are also the same in very delicate operations such as home banking or payment by credit card or other systems.
  • Cookies statistics: are used for site optimization purposes, directly by the site owner, who will be able to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the site. Under these conditions, the same rules apply to the cookies in terms of information and consent as for the cookies
  • Cookies functional (for storing preferences) these are cookies useful for promoting effective use of the site by the user and thus promoting a personalized browsing experience. They are used, for example, to keep track of the chosen language.
  •  marketing and profiling cookies (advertising): these cookies are intended to provide advertising spaces. They can be installed by the site owner or by third parties. Some serve to recognize individual advertisements and to know which ones have been selected and when. Other advertising cookies are used to hypothesize a browsing "profile" of the user, in order to be able to propose advertising messages in line with his behavior and interests on the network. This "profile" is anonymous and the information collected through these cookies does not allow the identity of the user to be traced. In this case the cookie presides over one of the systems for piloting the so-called "behavioral advertising".
  • Cookies of social networksthese are cookies that allow you to share the contents of the site you are visiting with other users. These are the cookies typically used to activate the "Like" or "Follow" functions of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, just to name a few. These functions allow social networks to identify their users and collect information even as they browse other sites.

Other useful types of cookies:

  • Secure cookie: a cookie with the Secure flag can only be transmitted over an encrypted connection (i.e. HTTPS). This decreases the likelihood of being exposed to cookie theft through interceptions. To achieve this, browsers that support this flag will only send cookies with the Secure flag when an HTTPS page is requested. In other words, the browser will not send a cookie with the Secure flag on an HTTP request, i.e. on an unencrypted connection.
  • Http Only cookies:cookies with the HttpOnly flag can only be used if transmitted via HTTP (or HTTPS). They are not accessible through non-HTTP APIs such as JavaScript. This restriction eliminates the threat of cookie theft via cross-site scripting (XSS), avoiding the threats of cross-site tracing(XST) and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).
  • Same Site cookie:Google Chrome 51 introduced a new Same Site flag which allows cookies to be sent only for requests from the same source, thus managing to neutralize attacks such as CSRF and other types of attacks.
  • SuperCookie:A "supercookie" is a cookie with an origin of a top-level domain (for example .com) or a public suffix (for example Ordinary cookies, on the other hand, originate in a certain domain, for example com. Supercookies can be a potential security problem and are therefore often blocked by web browsers. If unblocked from the client computer, an attacker, via a malicious website, could set a supercookie, and potentially destroy or redirect legitimate user requests to another website that shares the same top-level domain or public suffix as the website malevolent. For example, a supercookie with the .com domain could maliciously influence a request made to, even if the cookie did not originate from This can be used to fake logins or change user information. The Public Suffix List helps to reduce the risk that can be created through supercookies. This directory is a cross-party initiative that aims to provide an accurate and up-to-date list of domain names. Old browser versions may not have an up-to-date list, and will therefore be vulnerable to supercookies from certain domains.
  • Zombie cookies: the Zombie cookies are cookies that are automatically recreated after being deleted. This is accomplished by storing the contents of the cookie in multiple locations, such as flash local storage, HTML5 storage, and other storage mechanisms by both the client and the server. When the absence of the cookie is detected, it is recreated using the data stored in these locations. An example of zombie cookie is given by the Evercookie.

Allow cookies or not?

In most cases, cookies are useful. They create easier and faster online experiences by remembering your login, shopping cart, language, currency and other personal settings. It is safe to use them on reliable sites, which in this way allow you to navigate efficiently and personalized.

However, allowing cookies on unknown or suspicious sites could be dangerous for your device. By themselves, cookies cannot harm a computer, but they can help hackers to infiltrate and recover the information contained in the cookies.

Our recommendation on how to manage cookies?

Cookies created during site visits are saved to personalize user navigation. But are they really dangerous? By themselves, cookies are not malware, but there is always the possibility that a hacker will be able to access the data they contain and, in this way, your browsing history.

Our advice: clear your cache and only allow the use of cookies on sites you trust. Finally, to further improve your cyber defenses, install an antivirus program to fully scan your device and remove any threats it may have.

What happens when cookies are not accepted?

Mainly, you will have to re-enter information every time you start the browser and you won't be able to navigate with personalized settings, but apart from this, disabling cookies does not pose any problem. If privacy is the most important thing for you, you could try to block cookies to avoid unauthorized data collection, although it must be remembered that this is a rather remote eventuality.

How do you remove cookies from your computer?

It's a bit like spring cleaning the house, from time to time it's a good idea to clear your cookies, mostly because this way we reduce the risk of violations. Please note that some cookies, such as zombie cookies, need to be cleared by the browser's display software to avoid replication in the background.
