Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

To make this website www.ecomask.it works well, we sometimes install small data files called “cookies” on your device. Most of the big sites do the same too.

A cookie is a small text file that websites save on your computer or mobile device while you visit them. Thanks to cookies, the site remembers your actions and preferences (eg login, language, font size and other display settings) so that you do not have to re-enter them when you return to the site or browse from one page to another.

On some pages we use cookies to remember:

  • viewing preferences, eg. contrast settings or font size
  • if you have already responded to a pop-up survey on the usefulness of the content found, to avoid repurposing it
  • if you have authorized the use of cookies on the site.

Furthermore, some videos inserted in our pages use a cookie to anonymously compile statistics on how you got to the page and which videos you saw.

It is not necessary to enable cookies for the site to work, but doing so improves navigation. It is possible to delete or block cookies, but in this case some functions of the site may not work properly.

Information regarding cookies is not used to identify users and navigation data always remain under our control. These cookies are used exclusively for the purposes described here.

Preferences

These cookies allow our websites to store information that changes the behavior or appearance of the sites themselves, such as your preferred language or the geographical area in which you are located. By memorizing the geographic area, for example, a website may be able to offer you local weather forecasts or local traffic news. Cookies can also help you change the text size, font and other customizable parts of web pages.

The loss of the information stored in a preferences cookie could make the website experience less functional but should not compromise its functioning.

Most Google users have a preferences cookie called “PREF” in their browsers. A browser sends this cookie with requests to Google sites. The PREF cookie may store your preferences and other information, in particular your preferred language (for example Italian), the number of search results you want to display for each page (for example 10 or 20) and your preference for activation of the Google SafeSearch filter.

Safety

We use security cookies to authenticate users, prevent fraudulent use of login credentials and protect user data from unauthorized parties.

For example, we use cookies called “SID” and “HSID” that contain digitally signed and encrypted records for a user’s Google Account ID and most recent login date. The combination of these two cookies allows us to block many types of attacks, such as attempts to steal the contents of forms you complete on web pages.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Process

Process cookies contribute to the functioning of websites and the offer of services that visitors expect to find there, such as the ability to navigate between pages or access secure areas of the site. Without these cookies, the site cannot function properly.

For example, we use a cookie called “lbcs” which allows Google Docs to open many documents in a single browser. Blocking this cookie could compromise the proper functioning of Google Docs.

Advertising

We use cookies to make advertising more engaging for users and more useful for publishers and advertisers. Some common uses of cookies include selecting advertising based on what is relevant to a user, improving campaign performance reports, and the ability to avoid displaying ads that the user has already seen.

Google uses cookies, such as PREF, NID and SID cookies, to help personalize ads on Google properties, such as Google Search. For example, we use them to store your most recent searches, your previous interactions with an advertiser’s ads or search results and your visits to an advertiser’s website. This way we can show you personalized ads on Google.

We also use advertising cookies that we post across the web. Our main cookie for advertising on non-Google sites is called “id” and is stored in your browser under the doubleclick.net domain. We also use others with names such as drt, FLC and exchange_uid.

Sometimes, a cookie may be set on the domain of the site you are visiting. In the case of our DoubleClick product, a cookie called “__gads” may be set on the domain of the site you are visiting.

Other Google properties, such as YouTube, may also use DoubleClick cookies to show more relevant ads. Learn more about ads and YouTube.

Google also uses conversion cookies whose primary purpose is to allow advertisers to determine how many people who click on their ads end up buying their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you have clicked on the ad and then visited the advertiser’s site. Conversion cookies are not displayed by Google for interest-based ad targeting and persist for a limited period of time. These cookies are generally set in the googleadservices.com or google.com/ads domain. Conversion cookie data could also be used in association with your Google account to link conversion events between the various devices you use. Only anonymous conversion data collected through these cookies is shared with advertisers.

Some of the other cookies may also be used to measure conversion events. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies could also be used for this purpose and be set in the domain you are visiting.

We also use third parties (Facebook) to post advertisements that you may be interested in on other websites. For more information and to check your preferences, please visit:

Session status

Websites often collect information on how users interact with them. This can include the pages visited most often by users and the possibility that users receive error messages from certain pages. We use these “session state cookies” to improve our services and the browsing experience of our users. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not render the website unusable.

These cookies could also be used to measure the effectiveness of PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising and affiliate advertising.

For example, we use a cookie called “recently_watched_video_id_list” to allow YouTube to record the most recently watched videos from a particular browser.

Analytics

Google Analytics is an analysis tool from Google that helps website and app owners understand how visitors interact with the content they own. A set of cookies can be used to collect information and generate website usage statistics without personal identification of individual visitors by Google.

In addition to generating reports on website usage statistics, the Google Analytics pixel tag can be used, together with some of the advertising cookies described above, to allow us to show more relevant results in Google properties (such as Google Search) and across the web.
