Cookies are text files placed on your computer or mobile device when you access our website. Your first party cookies are set on the domains you are visiting at that time. Third party cookies are set on domains other than those of the web pages you visit, such as cookies set by the services used by the visited domain (Google Analytics, Facebook etc).
The information collected by cookies does not contain the name, the data filled in forms or other personal data of this kind, but they do contain a unique ID to distinguish one visitor from another, which makes this ID personal.
Cookies can be used for different purposes. First, they may be necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the website. For example, without cookies, it can be difficult for the website to remember that you are logged in or what products you have added to your shopping cart. These are called necessary cookies, and are automatically active,not being conditioned by the visitor’s agreement.
Also in the category of required cookies are also those placed to display your personalized advertising, as well as those that measure our audience.

Third, when we integrate social media plugins into your site, they place social media cookies to enable content playback (e.g. Youtube, Facebook), to allow you to log in using a third party service (e.g. Facebook or Google), as well as to allow you to appreciate or share a page or product on your favorite social media service.
Usually, by selecting those categories, the brands do not process personal data, but the profile that is created about the visitors is based on the collected data, through the cookies of advertising profiling. As these cookies are placed by services controlled by us (but not by the brand that advertises), it turns out that profiling (which is a processing of personal data) through these cookies is performed by us as a data operator.
