Marposs S.p.A a Socio Unico (“Marposs”) receives and records information from your browser when you use the www.marposs.com site and may use a variety of methods, such as cookies and pixel tags to collect information.
What are cookies and pixel tags?
A cookie is usually a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in your web browser while you are browsing a website. HTTP cookies may be stored only for the time you are in a given site (session cookie) or they may remain stored in your browser for a defined period of time beyond your current session (persistent cookie). Cookies work in combination with content within the website itself, to capture and remember information. Cookies cannot carry viruses or install malware.
Some of these cookies are necessary for the site to work properly, while others are useful to the visitors because they can safely store username or language settings. The advantage of having the cookies installed in your pc is that you no longer need to fill out the same information every time you want to access a site you visited before.
Cookies that are set by the domain of the site you are visiting (the domain in the address bar) are called first party cookies. First party cookies are commonly used to remember who you are as you move from page to page, or as you return to the site in subsequent visits. These cookies can only be read by the domain that set them.
Cookies that are set by domains other than the one in your address bar are called third party cookies. Third party cookies are used to track users across sites, for example to tailor advertising to you.
A pixel tag is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a Web site or in an e-mail that is used to monitor the behaviour of the user visiting the Web site or sending the e-mail. Websites may use pixel tags for many purposes, including site usage analytics, advertising, auditing and reporting, and content and advertising personalization. Alternative names are web beacon, tracking bug and web pixel.
Strictly Necessary: These are always enabled and are required for site functionality. They include cookies that allow you to be remembered as you explore the site within a single session or, if needed, from session to session.
Functional and Performance: These analytics cookies allow us to improve the site's functionality by anonymously tracking usage. They also help us identify Marposs products that we may recommend to you. In some cases these cookies improve the processing speed of your request, allow us to remember site preferences you have selected and help connect you to your social networks. De-selecting these cookies may result in slow site performance. You also may not be able to share effectively with Facebook, Twitter or other social networks.
