What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file composed of letters and numbers that a website visited by the user sends to the user's terminal (computer, mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet) where it is stored and then retransmitted to that website on a subsequent visit to the website.

Thanks to the use of cookies, the Website moleskinefoundation.org (the "Website") is able to identify users accessing the Website in order to improve the browsing experience of the identified user. In order to prevent cookies from being stored on his terminal and browser, a user must disable them.

Cookies used by the Website

Cookies are distinguished from each other, first of all, according to who installs them on the user’s terminal. Cookies can, in fact, be installed by the same operator of the website that the user is visiting (so-called “first-party cookies”) or by a different website, which installs cookies through the first website (so-called “third-party cookies”).

Cookies are also distinguished according to their purpose. In particular, the Website uses:

  • Technical/functionality cookies. They can be either session cookies (e.g. cookies that are automatically deleted when a user closes the browser) or persistent cookies that are used to remember information used between two separate logins. These cookies are used solely to allow the user to navigate or to provide a service requested by the user. They remember the information that the user provides while browsing the pages of the Website. They include, for example, cookies that allow a user to make a purchase, that allow authentication to restricted areas or that store the language and nationality selected by the user when visiting the Website. This allows us to customize the offer for users and remember their preferences, improving their experience within the Website.
  • Analytical/performance/statistical cookies. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how they move around our Website while using it. This helps us to improve the operation of our Website, for example, by ensuring that users easily find what they are looking for. The Website uses both our own analytical cookies and third-party analytical cookies that collect information that is appropriately anonymized through special tools used by the Website.
  • Profiling and marketing cookies. They can be either from Moleskine Foundation or third parties and are used to analyse the interests and browsing habits of individual users, in order to customize their browsing and deliver, for example, targeted contents, including advertisings.
