WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are lines of text used for automatic authentication, session tracking and storage of specific information relating to users who have access to the server hosting Armony S.p.A.'s website. So, more specifically, they are small text strings sent by the server of a web client (usually a browser) and then sent back to the server by the client (unchanged) each time the user gains access to the same portion of the same web domain. Therefore, a cookie is a small file which asks for the user's permission to be stored on the hard disk of his/her computer. Once consent has been granted, the file is stored and the cookie contributes to analysing user traffic (the data is aggregated and rendered anonymous) on the website.
The http://www.armonycucineusa.com/it/ website does not use profiling cookies, but only technical cookies, including third-party cookies, but only on an anonymous basis.
