2. TYPES OF DATA COLLECTED, PURPOSE, LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING AND DATA RETENTION PERIOD

2.1 WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small strings of text that the websites the user visits send to its terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored to then be resent to the same websites upon the subsequent visit of the same user.

2.2. TYPES OF COOKIES USED BY SHOP.HOOVER.CO.UK

It is important to point out that the user can receive two different types of cookies as is clarified below during navigation on the Internet.

FIRST-PARTY COOKIES: TECHNICAL AND ANALYTICAL COOKIES WITH RESTRICTED IDENTIFICATION POTENTIAL
Technical cookies are those cookies used only in order to transmit a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to the provider of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the user to deliver said service. Analytical cookies are instead used to analyse and measure the use of the website by the users. Analytical cookies, including third-party cookies, are similar to technical cookies where directly used by the website manager to collect information in aggregated form on the number of users and on how they visit the same website.

The Website uses the following types of first-party technical cookies:
(a) Navigation or session cookies: essential in order to allow the user to normally move about inside our Website and to correctly use its services; since they are not stored on the User’s computer, they disappear when the browser is closed;
(b) Functional cookies: aimed only at improving and speeding up navigation on the Website by storing certain choices made by the user (such as language preferences).


The legal basis legitimating the processing of personal data for this purpose is found in Art. 6, par. 1, letter b) of EU Regulation no. 679/2016, i.e. to allow the user to use the requested service.
Therefore, the use of technical cookies and processing connected with them does not require the user’s prior consent pursuant to current legislation.


The user is nevertheless ensured the possibility to prevent the installation of technical cookies at any time through the settings of their browser, aware that such a choice might complicate, slow down and sometimes block navigation on the Website.

THIRD-PARTY COOKIES: PROFILING COOKIES
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences the user expressed when navigating in the Internet. It is a processing activity to which in no case will discriminations or negative effects for the data subject result. This activity also allows the data controller to assess its services and to be able to improve them by making them more efficient and usable by third parties. The legal basis legitimating the processing of personal data for this purpose is found in Art. 6, par. 1, letter a) of EU Regulation no. 679/2016, i.e. since the user has given their consent to install profiling cookies.

To revoke consent to their installation and to disable them, click opt-out.

During a user’s navigation on our Website, some profiling cookies that are not directly controlled and managed by the Data Controller may be stored on their device. For example, this occurs when the user visits a page that includes the content of a third-party website.

Third-party profiling cookies serve to display personalised advertising on the Website and on other websites, and it is based on the navigation activities of each user. This type of cookies might also be used by third parties to show their products and services on the Website.

The Website also uses some types of analytical cookies of third parties through which the following information is collected (purely by way of example):
(a) number of visitors, page displays and navigation within the Website;
(b) effectiveness of the acquisition campaigns based on the web traffic source;
(c) details on products displayed and possibly downloaded on the Website.

Just like the purposes for which they are used outside the Website, these cookies fall under the direct and sole responsibility of the third party that installs them on the user’s terminal and they serve to show the user advertising in line with their interests (this is the case of the marketing/retargeting third-party cookies).

If the user prefers to not receive third-party cookies on their terminal, they may access the policies and consent forms of said third parties and stop their receipt at any time using the links provided below.

All cookies present in the Website are shown in the following table, with their specific features pointed out and, in the case of third-party cookies, links to their respective privacy policies are provided so that the user can knowingly decide whether or not to give consent to their use and which cookies they may block or delete.
