COOKIE POLICY

Our Cookie Policy aims to describe the types of cookies used by the website www.utopia-jewels.com, the purposes of the cookies installed and the methods by which Users can select or disable the cookies present on the Website and benefit from the services offered. 

We use cookies to make use of our Website easier and more intuitive. Data acquired by cookies is used to make future browsing experiences more pleasant and efficient.

  1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are tiny strings of text which websites visited send to the User’s terminal (usually the web browser), where they are memorised and subsequently retransmitted to the same website the next time the User visits. 

The term cookie refers to cookies themselves and all similar technologies.

Cookies are used to access online services more rapidly and to improve the User’s navigation experience by monitoring sessions, memorising Users’ information, loading content faster etc.

  1. TYPES OF COOKIES

Cookies may be:

 First-party cookies: these are cookies owned and used by the Website, which allow Users to navigate more efficiently and/or to monitor their activity; Third-party cookies: these are cookies set by a different website to the one being visited, to allow Users to navigate more efficiently and/or to monitor their activity. 

Furthermore, there are different types of cookies:

    • Technical and Analytical Cookies:
      these are cookies related to activities which are strictly necessary for the function of the website and the delivery of services (e.g. session cookies for login), cookies used for the saving of preferences and optimisation (e.g. cookies that save the basket or the choice of language/currency etc), analytical cookies which collect information in anonymous, aggregated form.
       

Technical cookies include:

      • Session or Navigation Cookies: these are used to track the User’s online activity. They guarantee normal navigation and use of the Website, for example by allowing faster navigation, purchases or authentication for access to reserved areas, and they are necessary for the correct functioning of the site. 
      • Functional Cookies: these allow the User to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, products chosen etc), in order to improve the service provided;
      • Analytical Cookies: these are used to collect information about use of the Website. The Data Controller uses such information for statistical analysis, to improve the Website and to simplify its use, as well as to monitor its correct functioning. This type of cookie collects anonymous information about Users’ activity on the Website, the ways in which they arrived at the Website and pages visited. Cookies in this category are sent by the Website itself or by third-party domains. Analytical cookies may be:  
        • First-party analytical cookies: these are governed by the regulations for technical cookies when used directly by the owner of the Website without carrying out User profiling but solely to acquire anonymous aggregate information regarding the number of Users and the way in which they visit the Website for statistical purposes or to improve the Website; 
        • Third-party analytical cookies: these are made available by third parties and are treated as technical cookies if the third parties do not carry out User profiling, by the use of instruments which reduce the identifying potential of cookies (e.g. by masking a considerable portion of the IP address) and do not cross-reference data collected with other data already held. 

Technical cookies only require the issue of a Cookie Policy, with no requirement for consent. Disabling or deleting these cookies via the web browser settings may compromise optimum navigation of this Website.

    • Profiling Cookies: these are used to monitor Users’ web browsing and create a profile of their habits: 
      • First-party profiling cookies: these are installed by the Controller to create a User profile in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown during web browsing. Since these cookies are particularly invasive of the User’s private sphere, current legislation requires the User to be provided with appropriate information regarding their use, and to give consent. 
      • Third-party profiling cookies: these are used by third parties which access information openly – i.e. not in anonymous or aggregate form – and cross-reference it with other data already in their possession. This Website does not have direct control over individual third-party cookies. Users are therefore invited to check the cookie policy on the third party’s website.  
    • Use of these cookies requires prior consent by the User. 
  1. INSTALLED COOKIES

  1. DURATION OF COOKIES

The duration of cookies is dictated by their expiry date or by a specific action such as closing the browser used when they were installed. Cookies may be:

      • temporary or session: these are used to store temporary information and allow actions carried out during a specific session to be linked; they are removed by the computer when the browser is closed; 
      • persistent: these are used to archive information, for example username and password, so that the User does not have to enter these every time they visit a specific website. These cookies are memorised by the computer even after the browser is closed. 

Users can change their preferences at any time.
