What are cookies
What types of cookies do we use?
Each cookie contains different data (e.g. the name of the server from which it originates, a numeric identifier, etc.). Such data can remain in the user's devices for various periods of time. In particular, Golem.com Srl uses both the so-called "persistent cookies" (i.e. cookies which stay in the memory until they are manually deleted by the user or for which a long term scheduled removal is envisaged) and the so-called "session cookies" (i.e. cookies which are not stored in a persistent manner on the visitor's computer and disappear when the browser is closed).
Golem.com Srl uses different types of cookies, which can be classified as follows:
- Technical session, navigation and consent cookies: this category of cookies is exclusively used for the correct function and a better functionality of the website. Their function does not require consent from the user, inasmuch as necessary for the website to function. Indeed, any deactivation could jeopardise the function thereof.
- Technical session cookies: these are for remembering the user's choices (e.g. language, provision of consent, etc.). Without recourse to such cookies some operations could not be completed or would be more complex and/or less safe. Therefore this type of cookie is essential.
In order to change the methods of using cookies, to block the receipt thereof or even delete cookies present on their computer, users must change the settings in their browser.
Most browsers envisage the possibility to accept or refuse all the cookies or only accept some of them (for example originating from specific sites). We specify that by disabling technical cookies, the site or some of its functions might not operate correctly.
The methods for setting up cookies vary for each browser. Specific information about this is available in the following links:
