What are cookies and why do we use them?

    Our website, as most of the websites that you visit, use cookies to enhance your online experience. Cookies are essentially small text files that are stored in the browser or in the hard disk used and that allow us to tell users apart from all other visitors.
    Using cookies provides many benefits. First of all, we can automatically log you in every time you visit our website, and remember your preferences. We can also keep you connected while browsing the website and customise its use.

    We also use cookies to send marketing messages suited to your needs and interests and to provide tips that help your search. For example, we can inform you of new documents corresponding to your level of use, and exclude messages that you have asked us not to display.

    Cookies are often misunderstood, and therefore it is important to clarify that they are no computer programmes and they cannot be used to spread viruses. We hope that this information will help you understand cookies better and dispel some of the myths associated with them!

    B2YOU srl uses cookies that fall under the following categories:

    Strictly necessary: these cookies ensure the password works and keep you connected while browsing the website.

    Website functioning: these cookies help the website remember information such as the contents of your basket or the progress of an order. They protect users connected to the website and help keep the website consistent throughout the visit.

    Website performance: these cookies inform us about how you use our website, such as the pages visited, and if errors occur. They do not collect information that may identify you and we only use them to improve the website functioning, to understand what interests you and to measure the effectiveness of our contents. Our performance cookies include:
    • google analytics tracking
    • user identification to access the restricted area
    • use of shopping baskets and the online shop

    Do I have to accept cookies?

    We advise you to keep cookies enabled on our website, to obtain all the benefits that we have described on this page. However, you can manage cookies using your Internet browser. Our system inserts cookies when you access the website, unless you have changed your browser settings. Remember that if you change the browser settings to block all cookies (including essential ones), you may not be able to access some or all of our website.

    You can also set your browser to warn you each time a website uses cookies. Each browser works differently, therefore we suggest you consult the "Tools" section of your browser (Safari, Explorer, Firefox, Chrome), then select "Internet Options" to check how to control cookies.

    What types of cookies are there?

    Session cookies
    These cookies are only stored on the device used (desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone) during a single visit to the website (called "browser session"). They remain idle until you start to actively explore the website and are deleted when you close your browser. The most important advantage of these cookies is that they allow you to browse through the website pages without having to log on each time.

    Persistent cookies
    These cookies remain on the device until a set deadline or until they are eliminated from the browser cache. They are enabled every time you visit the website that created them. They allow us to recognise you when you return to the website, to analyse your behaviour while browsing the website, and to identify any problems. All information is collected anonymously.

    Flash cookies
    Most people have Adobe Flash Player installed on their computer. Flash stores small files on the computer that are used in the same way as cookies. Flash cookies can also back up data that is stored in other cookies. When you delete normal cookies, Flash cookies are not affected, unless they are also selected for deletion.
