In line with European legislation, Visit Gran Sasso wants to ensure that every user of this website understands what cookies are and why they are used, so that you can consciously decide whether to accept their use or not. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from the website to the computer’s hard drive through an anonymous code that can identify the computer but not the user and can passively monitor the activities on the site.
- Strictly necessary cookies
- Performance cookies
- Functional cookies
- Profiling cookies
Visit Gran Sasso only uses the first three categories, for which no consent is required
1. Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential for browsing the website and allowing full use of its features, such as access to some protected areas. Without these cookies, some features, such as logging in to the site or creating an online shopping cart, could not be provided.
2. Analytical cookies: These cookies collect information on how users use the website, such as which pages are visited most often, and if users receive error messages from these pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a specific visitor. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous, and used only to improve the functioning of the website.
These cookies can be compared to “technical cookies” in that they are either (i) used directly by the site administrator to collect information in bulk form or (ii) managed by third parties that by specific means reduce the capacity of these cookies to identify users (for example, by hiding a significant part of the IP address) and that use them exclusively for providing the service. For example, cookie data is stored separately without combining or enriching them with other available personal data.
3. Functional cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember the choices that the user makes (such as username, language or geographical area) in order to optimize its features and provide more advanced ones. These cookies can also be used to provide features requested by the user, such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these cookies must be anonymous and canot track the user’s browsing or the user’s activities on other websites.
These cookies can also be defined as technical cookies.
The aforementioned cookies are defined as persistent and their duration is established by the server at the time of their creation.
