Cookie

What are cookies?

This site (www.nkgroup.it), like many others, uses cookies to provide the user with a richer and more personalized user experience while using the site.
Cookies are small text files that are stored onto the user’s device by the user’s web browser when visiting a web site.
Some of the purposes for which cookies are installed may also require the user’s consent.
Should the user decide to ignore the banner and continue to use this site, it will therefore store a technical cookie on the user’s device to record this choice and the subsequent navigation will be deemed a consent to the use of cookies used on this site. The notification banner will not appear again on the screen for any future visit to this web site, but users have the ability to remove cookies through their browser settings at any time.

Types of cookies

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs.

By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

Session cookie

A session cookie, also known as an in-memory cookie, transient cookie or non-persistent cookie, exists only in temporary memory while the user navigates a website. Web browsers normally delete session cookies when the user closes the browser. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date assigned to them, which is how the browser knows to treat them as session cookies.

Persistent cookie

Instead of expiring when the web browser is closed as session cookies do, a persistent cookie expires at a specific date or after a specific length of time. This means that, for the cookie’s entire lifespan (which can be as long or as short as its creators want), its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the website that it belongs to, or every time the user views a resource belonging to that website from another website (such as an advertisement).

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

First-party cookies

First-party cookies are cookies are set by the web server of this site and share the same domain. They can be both session and persistent and can be used for instance to ensure the functioning or to collect data regarding the usage of this web site by the user.

Third-party cookies

While browsing this site, the user’s device may store cookies from different sites or web servers (so-called third-party cookies). This can happen because on this site there may be elements, for example such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains located on servers different from the one where this site is hosted. These third parties may possibly set cookies when visiting this site and collect data about the fact that this site has been visited. Each third party has its own privacy policy which may differ from the one adopted by this site.
If the user decides not to give consent for the use of third-party cookies, only the functions of this site that do not require these cookies may be used.

Cookies can not cause any damage to user’s devices, we also select very carefully all third-party providers who can set cookies for marketing purposes.
