What are cookies
A “cookie” is information embedded in a text file that is transferred from the website visited by the user in his hard disk where it is saved in order to allow websites to store some data to make them
accessible to a subsequent access to the ‘user. It is ultimately a sort of reminder of the visited web page, with which the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) which, stored on the computer of the latter, they are then re-read and updated every time the user returns to the site to improve his navigation. In this way the website can automatically adapt to the user, allowing, moreover, to offer personalized services. Some cooki es require consent, others do not: in the first case, the consent issued by the user is always revocable.

Based on their duration, they are distinguished in:
• session cookies (that is temporary ones and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser);
• persistent cookies (or those that remain stored on the terminal until their natural expiration, established by the site itself, or on cancellation by the user).
Based on the origin, the cookies are divided, however, into:
• proprietary cookies, which are created, deleted and modified directly from the visited site;
• third-party cookies, which are created by other sites that own the contents and appear on the web page of the site you are visiting. It can happen, in fact, that even a web page contains cookies from other sites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as banner ads, 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 managers of websites or servers other than this website. When used for profiling purposes, their use requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free informed consent. Please note that third-party cookies are not under the control of Laba srl therefore, for more information on how the third party uses cookies, we recommend visiting the relevant websites. Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies:
• “technical cookies”, on the other hand, are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These cookies are useful to allow you to browse a website and use all its features. Since they do not fall within the scope of data processing governed by the GDPR – because they do not contain personal data, or identifiers associated with personal data or other information that identify the user, and their use is strictly functional to the provision of services from the site – the user’s consent for their use is not required. Advertising companies can also use technical cookies, for example to limit the number of times to display a specific ad or to set the frequency for displaying advertising messages (banner rotation). This category also includes analytics cookies. These are cookies that collect information about the use that a user makes of a website and that allow to improve its operation. For example, they show which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to check which are the recurring patterns of use of a website and help to understand every difficulty that the user encounters;
• profiling cookies can be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, to study their movements and habits of web browsing or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.),
also for the purpose of sending advertising of targeted and personalized services. Their use requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user in accordance with EU
Regulation 2016/679
