1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small pieces of information that are stored on the user’s device (computer, tablet, smartphone) when visiting a website.
Cookies allow the site to “remember” the user’s computer, but not specifically those who use it, and to make the browsing experience more enjoyable. By associating the identification codes of the cookies with other information relating to the user such as, for example, the data collected when the user logs in on the site, it is possible to know that the information contained in the cookie concerns the user.
Cookies are generally used for various purposes, such as allowing browsing through the pages of a site efficiently, applying user preferences and, more generally, improving the user’s browsing by customizing the site based on the user’s browsing habits and their profile.

3. Which cookies do we use?
The website of Lara Bellini uses different types of cookies, for various purposes, as better explained in the next section “Categories of cookies used on the LARA BELLINI SRL site”.
In particular Lara Bellini uses:
A) session cookies: these are cookies that are only active for the duration of a browsing session. They are generally used to facilitate access to the services offered on the site, authenticate the user if it is a previously registered user and store the items entered by the user in the shopping cart.
B) permanent cookies: these are cookies that are active for multiple visits. They are used to remember the user’s preferences and memorize the actions taken during the visit to the site. Upon the users return to the LARA BELLINI SRL site or in case of a visit by the user to other sites that use the same cookies, the site reads the cookies and identifies the user’s browser.
