J. HOW YOU CAN CONTACT US
The information presented below aims to inform the user of more details about the placement, use and administration of “cookies” used by our site.
If you need more information and it is not found below, you can contact us at any time.
Please read the following information carefully:
Cookies play an important role in facilitating access to and the delivery of multiple services to the user such as:
• Cookies provide site owners with valuable feedback on how their websites are used by users, so that they can make them even more efficient and accessible to users. (such as, for example, a better functionality of the sections of the site or the correct and efficient use of the website, or to highlight certain dysfunctions, so the website owner can have the possibility to improve – cookies can thus be used to provide us with data about traffic – i.e. about your visit on the website wwww.storyarc.eu.)
• Allow multimedia or other applications from other websites to be included in a particular website in order to create a more valuable, useful and enjoyable browsing experience;
What is a “cookie”?
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or, simply, “cookie”) is a file of reduced size, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive).
A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and content or value of the cookie. Moreover, the time duration of a cookie is determined; technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that web server. Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users.
How can we control a cookie?
Cookies represent the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping generate a friendly browsing experienceadapted to the preferences and interests of each user.
Cookies are managed by web servers, being small-sized .txt files, they can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings. (For Chrome: Tools / Options / Privacy / Allow data to be set. Explorer: Tools / Internet, Mozilla Firefox: Options / Cookies, Allow sites to set cookies, Explorer: preferences / securities).
When deleting these small files, your visit to certain sites may be extremely difficult and, at times, impossible.
What are third-party cookies?
Certain sections of content on some websites may be provided through third parties / providers (e.g.: news boxes, videos or advertisements). These third parties may also place cookies by means of the website and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of the website. Third party providers must also comply with applicable law and the privacy policies of the site owner.
Security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run automatically. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks in order to run or replicate again. Because they are unable to perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies may, however, be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about a users’ preferences and browsing history, both on a particular website and on several other websites, cookies can be used as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus / anti-spyware deletion / scanning procedures. In general, browsers have privacy settings integrated, settings which provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular website.
Other security issues related to cookies
Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every internet user to have the opportunity to choose whether to declare personal data is public or not, it is advisable for every user to be advised regarding what possible implications can arise by means of activated cookies. Through cookies, information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website. Should an unauthorized person intervene during the transmission of data, the information contained in the cookie may be intercepted. Although very rare, this can happen, for example if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured WiFi network).
