What are cookies?

The site www.macomsrl.it uses cookies. As clarified by the Privacy Guarantor in the FAQ of December 2012, available on www.garanteprivacy.it, cookies are “small text files” – consisting of letters and numbers – “that the sites visited by the user send to a terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored to be then retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits them”. Cookies have the function of streamlining the analysis of traffic on the web or to signal when a specific site or a part of it are visited, to distinguish visitors from each other in order to provide personalised content, and help administrators to improve the site and the navigation experience of the users themselves.
Through cookies we cannot access other information stored on your device, even if this is where cookies are downloaded. Cookies cannot load codes of any kind, carry viruses or malware and are not harmful to the user’s terminal.
Below you can find all the information on the cookies installed through this site, and the necessary information on how to manage your preferences in this regard.

By connecting for the first time to any page of www.macomsrl.it, the user will see a brief disclosure on the use of cookies. By closing this disclosure through the appropriate button or by clicking outside the banner that contains it and continuing to navigate, the user consents to our use of cookies, in the manner described in this Cookie Policy.
The user always has the possibility to revoke all or part of the consent already expressed.
If you encounter technical problems related to the provision of consent, please contact us through the appropriate channels provided by this site to allow us to provide assistance.

To allow the use of our site and the provision of our services, we use both so-called persistent cookies (i.e. cookies that remain in memory until they are manually deleted by the user or for which a long-term scheduled removal is planned) and so-called session cookies, which are not stored permanently on the visitor’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed.
We use cookies of different types – with specific functions – which we can classify as follows:

First-party cookies, i.e. issued by macomsrl.it
Type of cookie What do they do?
(To release this type of cookie does not require the user’s consent)

They are essential for the proper functioning of our site and allow the user to navigate and view the contents. Their possible deactivation would lead to malfunctions of the site.

Generally, cookies of this type are necessary, for example, to keep a navigation session open or to allow the user to access any restricted areas. Also, they can temporarily remember the texts entered during the compilation of a form, when you return to a previous page during the same session.

(To release this type of cookie does not require the user’s consent)

They allow the user to take the best advantage of the peculiarities of the site and to enjoy a more comfortable navigation. The site works ideally if these cookies are enabled; however, one can decide not to allow its activation on his or her device.

In general, for example, cookies of this type remember in which language the user prefers to view our content or remember (for a limited period) the items in the virtual cart in the event that the session is closed before completing the purchase.

(To release this type of cookie does not require the user’s consent)
This cookie keeps track of the consent given by the user to the use of cookies on this site, so as not to re-propose – on subsequent visits – the brief information on cookies and the request to give consent.
