Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy sets out how Consorzio Italiano Tutela Mortadella Bologna and the third parties we authorise use Cookies when you interact with our sites or the services offered through the sites. By using our websites, you consent to the use of cookies in accordance with this “Cookie Policy”.

This Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy – which explains how we use information, including any personal data we may collect about you – and it should be read in addition to it.

The law provides that we may store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies, we require your consent.

This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are created and read by third party services that appear on our pages. Below you will find all the information about what cookies are, how we use them on our sites and your current consent status.

What are cookies?

A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on computers, tablets, mobile phones and any device used to browse the Internet, which stores browsing information for statistical or functional purposes. As you browse through our websites, we may collect information regarding traffic flow and page visits to our domains. This information, obtained through cookies, will be processed securely.

The purpose of using cookies is to make the experience more efficient for the user by personalising access to the website, optimising navigation and operation of the site, improving our services and providing content and/or advertising related to user preferences.

When we talk about cookies, we are in fact referring to a broader range of technologies than just cookies, including web beacons, clear gifs, pixels, and other similar technologies. When we talk about proprietary cookies, we mean cookies sent by Consorzio Italiano Tutela Mortadella Bologna. When we talk about third-party cookies, we mean cookies from other sites sent by third parties unrelated to Consorzio Italiano Tutela Mortadella Bologna.

They can be, for example, advertising banners, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by website operators or servers other than this website. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free and informed consent.

Depending on their duration, we distinguish between session cookies (i.e. those that are temporary and automatically deleted from the device at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. those that remain stored on the device until they expire or are deleted by the user). In any case, persistent cookies expire after 7 days.

Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking and store specific information about users accessing a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to allow you to browse a website and use all of its features. Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the user’s consent.

For example, analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited and allow web developers to see what the recurring patterns of use of a website are, helping them understand any difficulties users are experiencing in using it.

Types of cookies used by our site
