Cookie policy

  1. Guidance on the implementation of cookies under the GDPR Regulation

For the correct implementation of cookies on the website the following will be considered:

Listing the categories of cookies used (necessary/preferred/statistical/marketing) and adding a short description (one sentence/phrase) of the purpose they serve, in language that is clear and easy for the user to understand. Each category will have a separate box. The box with the strictly necessary cookies must be pre-ticked so that the site can function optimally.

In the case of cookies that retain statistical, preference, analytical or marketing data, the individual must be able to tick the box if they wish. This possibility must exist from the moment of accessing the site as well as at any subsequent time.

The GDPR Regulation is applicable whether cookies process personal data or not. Therefore, statistical, preference, analytical and marketing cookies should not be overridden.

The consent of the individual must be sought prior to the activation of a cookie. The expression of consent must be made actively, by a movement on the part of the user, i.e. by ticking the box. Thus, activating cookies by simply browsing the site, or by a simple general acceptance button is not sufficient.

These cookies may not be used until you tick them and you must always be able to withdraw your consent (by unticking the box).

The renewal of consent must be done by sending a notification 12 months after the acceptance of cookies. If the box is not ticked, consent is deemed to have been given and these cookies can no longer be used. Proof of consent must be kept.

Below please find a model used in practice that we consider to be the most appropriate.

Of course, any other way of implementing cookies is fine as long as it follows the rules outlined above.

  • By clicking on the “Show details” button, a table will appear showing all cookies used on the site according to their category (cookie declaration).
  1. As you can see, the boxes “Preferences”, “Statistics” and “Marketing” are not ticked, in this sense, the boxes must be actually ticked by the users.
  2. By clicking on the “About cookies” column, you will be shown a brief overview of the cookie policy of the site in question and a link to the full policy.
  3. Below, the privacy policy is described. It is drafted with the above example in mind and should be modified according to the technical particularities (concerning cookie categories) of the site.

Cookie policy

The following information is intended to provide the user with more details about the placement, use and management of cookies used by LA GONDOLA INVEST S.R.L through www.boscobucharest.com..

The website uses its own and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and services tailored to their needs and interests.

What is a cookie?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on a website user’s computer, mobile device or other equipment.

Imprint

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime 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.

Thus, we use two types of cookies: per session and fixed. The former are temporary files that remain on the user’s terminal until the session ends or the application (web browser) is closed. Fixed files remain on the user’s terminal for the period set in the cookie settings or until they are manually deleted by the user.

Installation

The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and is completely “passive” as it contains no software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

Importance

Cookies are at the heart of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user’s preferences and interests.

Types of cookies

Cookies required

Strictly necessary cookies allow navigation on the site and its functionality, which is why they are always active.

Preference cookies

This type of cookie retains the user’s preferences on this site, so it is necessary to set them each time you visit the site. (WordPress, Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics).

Analytics cookies

Each time a user visits this site, analytics software (provided by a third party) generates a user analytics cookie. This cookie shows whether the site has been visited before by the same user. It allows tracking unique users who visit the site and how often they do so. This cookie cannot be used to identify individuals, they are only used for statistical purposes, but in some cases they may also collect the IP address, which is personal data (WordPress, Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics).

Advertising (marketing) cookies

These cookies can provide the ability to monitor users’ online activities and establish user profiles, which can be used for marketing purposes. For example, cookies can be used to identify the products and services a user has chosen, and this information can then be used to send appropriate advertising messages to that user. This process is called interest-based advertising. Shared interests are grouped according to previous browsing activity and users are only served ads that match their interests (WordPress, Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics).

Third party cookies

References to information provided by third parties/providers (e.g. a video) can be found on the site. Such third parties may place cookies on the website. They must also comply with applicable legal regulations (WordPress, Google, Facebook).

www.boscobucharest.com currently uses the following cookies: Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics and WordPress Analytics.

FAQ

Do cookies contain personal data?

Most cookies do not collect personal data for use. However, some cookies (i.e., marketing, statistics, preferences) may collect personal data such as IP address. This collection is done for the purpose of facilitating certain functionalities for the user. In any case, this data is encrypted so that unauthorised persons cannot access it (Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics, WordPress Analytics).

What are the advantages of cookies?

A cookie contains information that links a web-browser (the user) to a specific web-server (the website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly.

Cookies play an important role in facilitating access to and delivery of the many services the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:

Customize settings such as: language in which the site content is viewed, keep options for various products (measures, other details, etc.) in the shopping cart (and storing these options) thus creating “shopping cart flexibility” (accessing old preferences by clicking the “forward” and “back” buttons);
Allowing multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a given site to create a more valuable, useful and enjoyable browsing experience;
Cookies provide site owners with valuable information on how their sites are used by users so they can make them even more effective and accessible to users (WordPress Analytics, Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics).

What kind of information is stored and accessed through cookies?

The cookie stores important information that enhances the web browsing experience such as the language settings of a site, keeping a user logged into a webmail account, etc.

How to control and delete cookies?

With regard to “Statistics”, “Preferences” and “Marketing” cookies, we conclude that visitors to the site who have ticked the relevant boxes have given their consent after obtaining the necessary information about cookies and their control in a simplified and efficient way (to be completed/modified according to the site’s specificities).

Cookies can be controlled and/or deleted at the user’s discretion. Thus the user can manually set some preferences (tick or untick certain boxes) each time he visits the site. Also, some services or options may not work if certain cookies are disabled (Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics, WordPress Analytics).
