Cookies: what are they, what are they for

Please read carefully

A cookie is:
A short-text file which is copied on the hard disk drive by a web page server and becomes like a user’s identification card. Cookies cannot be used for executing programs and cannot contain viruses. This file can only be read by the server that sent it.

A cookie is for:
Informing the server that the web page has been visited again.

The advantage of using cookies consists in:
Saving time. If you customise pages or register for services or products, a cookie will allow FAMI S.r.l. to recognise the user. At the next visit, the requested information will be displayed. If you wish to register for another product or service, all you will have to do is type your email address and a password. The questions that have already been answered will be automatically filled. If you make no registration and you do not specify personal information, the server will only detect that the web page has been visited again. It is the user that decides which information to disclose. With a higher number of data, you will obtain more information on products of interest.

A cookie allows FAMI S.r.l. to:
Guarantee higher efficiency of the services provided, by recognising which information is more important for the visitors. The unvisited web pages are ignored, while the attention is focused on the information useful for the user.
