COOKIE POLICY

This cookie keeps track of the user’s consent to the use of cookies on this site so that the Cookie Policy and consent request are not displayed again on subsequent visitsWhat are cookies?

The site www.lofarma.it uses cookies. As explained by the Italian Data Protection Authority in its FAQs of December 2012, available on www.garanteprivacy.it, cookies are “small text files” – made up of letters and numbers – “that sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visit them”. Cookies have the purpose of streamlining web traffic analysis or signalling when a specific site or part of a site is visited, distinguishing between visitors in order to provide customised content and helping administrators to improve the site and the users’ browsing experience. For the sake of simplicity, the term Cookies in this document refers also to other similar technologies such as Beacons and Pixels.

Cookies do not allow us to access any other information stored on the user’s device, although this is where the cookies are downloaded. Cookies cannot load codes of any kind, carry viruses or malware and are not harmful to the user’s terminal equipment.

Below is all the information about the cookies installed through this website and the necessary guidance on how to manage the user’s preferences in this respect.

User’s consent

The first time the user visits any page of www.lofarma.it, a short notice on the use of cookies will be displayed.

Through the selection tools available, the user can select or deselect the categories of cookies they wish to authorise in order to benefit from the possibilities they offer when browsing. By clicking on the “Accept all cookies” button the user consents to our use of all cookies on the site as described in this Cookie Policy. By clicking on the “Accept selected cookies” button the user consents to our use of the selected cookies as described in this Cookie Policy. By clicking on “Reject unnecessary cookies” button the user refuses the use of cookies other than the technical ones which are strictly functional for the use of the site.

The site remembers the choice made by the user on the device used for 12 months, so the short notice will not be displayed again in subsequent connections from the same device. However, the user can always revoke all or part of their consent, as explained in the section “Configuring your terminal”.

In case of technical problems in providing consent, please contact us through the appropriate channels on this site for support.

If a user of the social network visits this site while logged into their account, this information may be associated with their account.
