Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy is an integral part of the privacy policy of Gewiss S.p.A., with registered office in Via Domenica Bosatelli 1 24069 Cenate Sotto (BG) (hereinafter referred to as "Gewiss") available here. This Cookie Policy applies to the following domains: (hereinafter, the "Site").

1. Definitions, characteristics and application of the regulations

Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send and record on his computer or mobile device, to be then transmitted to the same sites the next time he visits. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the user's actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, the language chosen, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to that site or navigates from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users who access a site and may also contain a unique identification code that allows you to keep track of user navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes.
While browsing a site, the user may also receive on his/her computer cookies from sites or web servers other than the one he/she is visiting (so-called "third party" cookies). Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the functioning of the site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user's computer for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user's equipment until a preestablished expiry date.

On the basis of the applicable legislation, the use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, "technical cookies" do not usually require such consent, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, or for purely statistical purposes and after the collection of anonymous and aggregate data. In other words, these cookies are indispensable for the functioning of the site or necessary to carry out activities requested by the user.

2. Types of cookies used by the Site

The Site uses cookies that fall into the macro-category of "technical" cookies, for which your prior consent is not required:

  • Technical: technical cookies are necessary in order to make the website usable, for example by allowing access to protected areas. The user's consent is not required for their functioning. Without these cookies, it may be difficult or impossible to properly navigate the website.
  • Functionality: functionality cookies allow the website to store information that affects its behaviour or appearance based on user requests. The user's consent is required for their functioning.
  • Statistics: statistics cookies allow us to understand how users use the website, supporting the Data Controller in understanding the main forms of interaction. The user's consent is required for their functioning.
  • Marketing: marketing cookies are used to track visitors, for example, to present content of interest to an individual user. The user's consent is required for their functioning.

It should be noted that third parties (third-party cookie providers) are typically autonomous controllers of the data collected through the cookies they serve; therefore, the user should refer to their privacy notices.
