What are cookies and why they are used
Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user's browser by visited websites; they are stored in the user computer or mobile device to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's following visits to those websites.
Cookies have the core role of enhancing/enabling usability or website processes. They can offer a better user experience, allow IT authentication, monitor browsing session, store user’s configuration, collect statistical data and so on. Generally speaking, they enrich the functionality of a website.
Type of cookies
You may distinguish cookies into two major group: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Technical cookies may be required to ensure the running and the proper operation of the website or application. Disabling cookies may prevent users from using certain websites. To this broad category, the Authority associates also the analytic cookies placed by the publisher or the manager the website (editore o gestore del sito), provided that only aggregated data are processed, as well as the functionality cookies to improve the service provided to the users (e.g. language preferences).
Users' prior consent is not necessary to install technical cookies, whilst information under article no. 13 of the Codice has to be provided in the most appropriate manner by the website manager. We at GUNSweek.com provide this information about technical cookies through the banner at the bottom of the page, at your first visit. By pressing the "OK" button on this banner, we will release to your browser a tiny cookie that will prevent us from reproposing the same banner at a later visit.
Profiling cookies are designed to collect and store information about a visitor (e.g. the pages visited, any searches done etc.) to provide focused advertising that is more likely to be of interest. Cookie profiling is a way for marketers to target potential customers.
While no prior consent is needed for technical cookies, behavioral or profiling cookies require a specific and express consent by the user. We at GUNSweek.com do not use profiling cookies. Our advertising system is driven by content, not by profilation.
Publisher and Third party cookies
Digitoolmedia Srls is the publisher of GUNSweek.com, this website. Cookies placed by the publisher or the manager of the website are defined first party cookies.
When navigating a website, a user may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers, which are the so-called third party cookies. This happens because the visited website may contain items such as images, maps, sound files, video and links to individual web pages on different domains, which are located on servers other than the one where the page being visited is stored. Just to give an example, a YouTube video embedded in some of our webpages.
Third party cookies are cookies that are placed by the managers of another website (third party) via the publisher's website. Due to technical reasons, the website publisher (manager/owned/editor) is not responsible for any third party cookies, as he cannot control over. Website at this point acts as technical intermediary and must only provide a link to the information notices and consent forms of the third parties.
As we said, we at GUNSweek.com use only technical cookies and do not use profiling cookies.
