Types of Cookies
Cookies, web beacons, tags and similar technologies can be grouped according to their characteristics or purposes.
Depending on the length of their expiry period, cookies can be persistent and session cookies.
Session cookies donly last until the end of the session and expire at the end of your current visit to the site. They allow us to link your actions during that particular session.
Persistent cookies are stored on your device between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple sites.
Depending on their ownership, cookies are divided into two categories:
First party cookies are those set and managed by Imer International spa and our site at the time it is visited by the user to preserve your preferences.
Third party cookies are placed in your browser by a domain and provider when you are not visiting our Site. Our Site sets third party cookies from our partners and analytics and marketing providers.
Cookies, web beacons, tags and similar technologies, whether operated by us or by third parties, serve various purposes on our Site. Depending on the purpose, they may be essential to the operation of our Site and our services or allow us to provide additional functionality such as tracking trends and user movements, analysing demographic information, providing analytics on the Site and for advertising.
According to their purpose, we classify them into the following categories:
Strictly necessary cookies: these cookies are necessary for the functioning of the website. They may store your account ID, order status, personalisation or website tracking. They may also be used for technical purposes such as keeping track of your current shopping session and allowing you to proceed to checkout and pay for your order, or to store information that you have already entered (such as your region and language choices) so that we can offer you relevant and personalised services, products and other communications. Cookies also enable us to fulfil our contractual obligations to third parties and partners if you have made a purchase from our website by following a link to them. It is not possible to manage this type of cookie in our system, and to disable them, you will need to do so across the board via your browser settings. You can set your browser to block or warn you about these cookies, but please note that some parts of the site will not work if you do so.
Analytics cookies: we use third party analytics services to collect information about the use of this site, such as the number of visits, pages visited, popularity of certain content. Analytics tools use tracking cookies to recognise your device and compile information about you. They collect information about the pages you visit and how long you spend on these pages, the IP address you have been assigned, what operating system and web browser you use and which site you visited before visiting our website. If you disable these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site and we will not be able to monitor and improve its performance.
Functional cookies: these cookies enable our website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not accept these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.
A list of the cookies we use on our Site, with classifications for each category, is available in the Cookie Settings section. In order to compose the list of cookies in each category, our Site is regularly scanned with the cookie scanning tool to keep it as accurate as possible.
Cookies can be restricted or blocked by specific browser settings, so if you do not want to store certain cookies on your computer, you can configure your web browser accordingly. You may choose to block all cookies or only specific cookies. At any time, the user can choose to delete cookies stored on his or her browsing device. The settings must be changed separately in each browser and computer used.
If you have blocked cookies, the website cannot function properly. Some functions may not be available and it may no longer be possible to view certain pages.
