The www.kirizza.com website (hereinafter called the „Website”) may set or read cookies and device identifiers when you use the Website.
I. General information about cookies and device identifiers
1. What is a „cookie”?
An „Internet Cookie” (also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a User, from which the Internet is accessed.
The cookie is installed by a web server’s request to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses, and cannot access information on your hard drive). The cookie stores certain information (for example, your preferred language or webpage settings), which your browser may retransmit to us when you access the webpage again, depending on the lifespan of the Cookie).
Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users.
2. What are the types of cookies?
There are several types of cookies. Their classification is based on their lifespan, role and source:
2.1 Cookies depending on their lifespan
a) Session Cookies
These are temporarily stored in the cookies folder of the web browser so that it may store them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window (e.g. when logging in / logging out of a webmail account or on social networks).
b) Persistent Cookies
These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the default lifetime for the cookie). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the User is currently visiting – known as “third party cookies” – which can be used anonymously to store the interests of a User, so that the most relevant advertising for the Users could be delivered.
2.2 Cookies depending on their role
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These types of cookies are necessary for the web pages to function properly. Strictly necessary cookies allow you to browse the website and benefit from its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to provide certain features, such as automatic redirection to the least busy server or remembering your wish list.
a. Functional Cookies
Functional cookies record information about the choices that users make and also allow website operators to customize the website according to user requirements. For example, cookies can be used to save category / segment preferences.
b. Performance and Analytics Cookies
These types of cookies allow website operators to monitor visits and traffic sources, how users interact with the website or certain sections of the website.
The information provided by the analytics cookies helps the operators to understand how the visitors use the websites and then to use this information to improve the way the content provided to the users is presented.
c. Advertising Cookies
These cookies can provide the ability to monitor users’ online activities and to create user profiles, which may then be used for marketing purposes. For example, cookies may be used to identify products and services approved by a user, and this information is then used to send appropriate advertising messages to that user.
2.3 First-party cookies vs third-party cookies
Each cookie has a “manager” (i.e. website / internet domain), who places that cookie.
First-party cookies are placed by the website accessed by the user. For example, if the user visits Google and the domain of the cookie placed on their computer is www.Google.com, then it is a first-party cookie.
A third-party cookie is placed by a website other than the one accessed by the user; this means that the accessed website also contains information from a third-party website
– for example, an advertising banner that appears on the visited site. Thus, if the user visits Google but the cookie placed on their computer has the domain wizard.com, for example, then it is a third-party cookie.
2.4 How do targeting and advertising cookies work?
In general, data about internet browsing activity is collected and analyzed anonymously. If this analysis reveals a specific interest, a cookie (small text file used by most sites to store certain pieces of information useful to make the browsing experience better) – is placed on the User’s computer and this cookie determines what type of advertisement the user will receive, which is called interest-based advertising.
Interest-based advertising is a way of delivering ads to the websites you visit and making them more relevant to your interests. The common interests are grouped according to the previous browsing activity, and users are only served with advertising that matches their interests. In this way, advertising is relevant to the interests of the User.
