The matter is governed by the European Directive 2002/58 / EC – subsequently amended by Directive 2009/136 / EC and implemented by the national laws of the member states of the European Union – which requires obtaining consent for cookies and similar technologies.
What is a cookie
A cookie is a small text file, usually of letters and numbers, downloaded to a device when the user accesses the website. The cookies are then sent to the original site on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device.
Types of Cookies
Session and persistent cookies Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (ie, from when a user opens the browser window until the browser is exited) or they can be kept longer.
Session cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what a user has placed in their shopping cart while browsing a site. They could also be used for security when a user accesses internet banking or to facilitate the use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session.
The use of so-called session cookies (which, in any case, are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and are automatically deleted as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the purpose of data transmission (consisting of numbers generated by the server) that identify the specific session and are necessary to allow safe and efficient browsing. The so-called session cookies used on this site avoid the use of other computer techniques that are potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of users’ web browsing.
Persistent cookies – are stored on the users’ device between distinct browser sessions and allow to remember the user’s actions on a site. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering user preferences and choices when using a site (or in some cases across different websites).
“First” and “third party” cookies – The circumstance that a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third party’ is strictly connected to the website or domain that uses that particular cookie. “First party” cookies, in essence, are cookies set by the same website visited by the user – that is, the site displayed in the URL window: in our case, the cookies set by www.overlapgaragedoors.com. “Third party” cookies, on the other hand, are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one visited by the user: that is, cookies that are set by websites other than www.overlapgaragedoors.com.
Ownership of the treatment
Consent for cookies
Some cookies are strictly necessary for the Internet to function properly and do not require the user’s consent, such as those to ensure that the content of a page is loaded quickly and effectively, the distribution of the workload between different computers or those aimed at ensuring safety.
Other cookies are still reasonably necessary or important, but they are not strictly essential and, therefore, require the user’s consent.
The browser settings represent another means for the release of consent or, on the contrary, for the refusal of cookies; the user can set the browser to warn of the presence of cookies, allowing him to decide whether to accept cookies or not. It is also possible to automatically refuse all cookies by activating the appropriate option in the browser.
Each browser highlights instructions for this purpose.
