1. What is a cookie and what is it used for?

Cookies were created in 1994 by Lou Montulli, an employee of Netscape, to solve problems concerning the limitations of identifying computers connected to a web page. Without cookies, sites cannot know whether two requests come from the same device, so they need to be labelled.

Cookies are saved on the hard disk or in the memory of the visitor’s computer. A cookie is a small file that is sent from a web server (which is the computer running the website you visited) to your browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and saved on your device when you visit a website like Micaela Scapin. Cookies allow the site to function efficiently and improve its performance, they also give information to Micaela Scapin for statistical or advertising purposes, mainly to personalise your browsing experience by remembering your preferences and how you navigate.

The cookie is similar to a purely personal identification card, the purpose of which is to tell Micaela Scapin when you return. Many websites, including (the ‘Site’), make use of them. Cookies tell us how often you visit pages, and this helps us understand what information may be of interest to visitors. In this way, we can offer more content that is of interest to a specific behaviour and less that may not be of interest to you. Cookies help us to be more efficient and store user preferences and names, register products and services and personalise pages.

Cookies do not collect information that directly identifies the user. In fact, Micaela Scapin cannot use cookies to retrieve any directly personal identifying information (e.g. first name, last name) unless provided directly by the user. Moreover, another website cannot use a cookie issued by the Site to access other information contained in the user’s computer. Once saved on your computer, the cookie can only be read by the website that created it (and therefore, in our case, by In practice, if you do not subscribe to the Site and do not enter any personal information, the only thing the server knows is that someone with that cookie has visited us again. Nothing else.

Cookies can be “session” cookies (when they are stored only for the duration of the browsing session on the site and are deleted when the browser is closed), or “permanent” (they are stored for a longer time, until they expire or are deleted by the user).

Micaela Scapin safeguards the confidentiality of personal data and guarantees them the necessary protection from any event that could put them at risk of violation.

As provided for by EU Regulation 2016/679 and by the current legislation on the processing of personal data, the user (“Interested Party”) is provided with information regarding the so-called “cookies”.

2. Types of Cookies

Different types of cookies and related technologies may be used, each of which has a specific function.

If you are, for example, a registered user, they allow recognition and access to the services offered in the dedicated areas. The navigation cookies are technical cookies and are necessary for the site to function.

These cookies are usually temporary, so-called “session cookies”, and are issued by the Site on the user’s computer during navigation, but are only stored for the duration of the navigation session itself. This means that when the user closes his browser the cookies are automatically deleted and disappear, without remaining stored on the computer. They consist of random numbers generated by the server and serve to enable the safe and efficient exploration of the Site. Necessary cookies are absolutely essential for the proper functioning of the Website. This category only includes cookies that ensure the basic functionality and security features of the website.

Functional cookies are not indispensable for the functioning of the site, but they improve the quality and experience of navigation.
