This policy about Cookies (“Cookies Privacy Policy”) must be read together with the Privacy Policy Statement available at the Internet address

The Cookies Privacy Policy aims to describe the various types of cookies and the technologies used on the Castello Lancellotti Web Site to describe the terms and conditions of use.

What Cookies are
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send to the device (usually to the browser), they are stored in the corresponding browser folder while the user is visiting a website, and they are then relayed to same sites on following website visits. They are used with the aim of improving web navigation (the HTTP protocol is stateless and fails to “remember” the authenticated user who browses the pages), of saving user preferences already entered (username, password etc.), of tracking the user’s tastes and preferences allowing to manage the possible presence of targeted marketing initiatives or the provision of services related to the owner’s activity such as newsletter, dem etc. If restrictions are set on their use, this will have definitely effects on the user’s status during the website consultation. Blocking or removing them from the browser cache may cause an incomplete use of the services offered by the Web application.

Types of Cookies
Session Cookies are temporary Cookies, which “exist” during the all user’s use session. When the browser is closed, Session Cookies expire. These Cookies are used typically to identify users when they access a site, to remind the user and his preferences when switching from one web page to another one in the website, to provide him with specific information previously collected. The most common example of this feature is the “cart” functionality of an e-commerce website. For example, when you visit a catalog page and select some items, the Session Cookie remembers the selection so that in a virtual shopping cart, items remain selected when you are ready for the checkout task. Without Session Cookies, if the user clicked Checkout, the new website page could not recognize the tasks done in the previous website pages and the cart would always remain empty.

Persistent Cookies remain active even after the browser shut down and help websites to remember data and user’s settings for a later consultation. This allows faster and more convenient access in terms of time as you don’t have to log in again. In addition to the authentication use, other website features are made available and include: language selection, theme selection, menu preferences, bookmarks or favorites, and many more. During the visit the user selects their preferences and they will be remembered through the use of the Persistent Cookie during the following visit.

Third party Cookies
There are various types of Cookies, some of which are defined “third parties Cookies”. They are used, for example, by the first website visited by the user and contains ads from another server or third party’s website. From an operational point of view, the browser collects information fed from different sources so that all items are displayed on the same page thus creating a Cookie in the corresponding browser folder. All these cookies can be removed directly from the browser settings or its creation can be blocked. In the latter case, some services of the website may not work as expected and may not be possible to access or even lose user preferences if there is no longer the associated Cookie, so the information would be displayed in the wrong local form or may not be available.

Web Beacons: Also known as “tracking pixels”, “gif 1 × 1”, “single pixel gif”, “pixel Tag” or “action tag” are graphical images, which generally do not exceed the size of 1 pixel x 1 pixel and are used to gather anonymous information about users’ website way of use and to offer customized content. They also allow you to identify the types of browsers, the words inserted in the search engines by the users used to reach the website. Web Beacons present in email communications and let you know if a user has received, opened or clicked links provided with the email received.

Flash Cookies or Local shared objects (LSOs): websites can use Flash content, displayed on their pages, to store some information about the device. As for HTTP cookies, local shared objects can be used by websites to collect information on the routes taken by users on the navigation through websites. Online banks and advertisers can use shared local objects for monitoring purposes.

Functionally Cookies markers that keep in memory the user’s choices and then automate some procedures or allow to customize the user experience (eg they do not allow overlay advertising banners to appear). Google Analytics is a service offered by Google that generates traffic statistics for a website and traffic sources. It is the most used statistics service. The information can be accessed at:

Privacy and security about cookies
Cookies are not worms, they are only text files which are neither read by the browser nor executed by program. As a result, they cannot duplicate themselves, spread to other networks to be replicated again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they do not fall within the standard definition of worms. However, Cookies can be used for dangerous purposes. As they store information about preferences, the history of a user’s actions, specific navigation across multiple websites, Cookies can be used to act as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are well aware of this problem and routinely report cookies as possible threats.
As for Flash Cookies, Adobe does not directly provide a tool to customize the Flash Player settings related to the management of them.
