Without them, in fact, those services that the website should offer and the user’s navigation would be for sure poor.
For example, it would not be possible to understand which services are the most relevant for the user or how the user uses the site itself; besides they allow the site to remember the access information, so the user does not have to retype every time the credentials; they can be used to establish if there has been already a connection between the User’s computer and Website to point out new things.

The website could use 4 types of cookies according to the page the user is navigating:
– Technical cookies – They are necessary for the proper functioning of the Site. They allow pages navigation, contents sharing, the storage of user’s login data and preferences making the access faster.

The customization process, as well as the advertisement contents, is not managed by FoodiesTrip, but they are operated by the third-party cookie providers (e.g., Google ads, Facebook ads, etc.). They allow FoodiesTrip to have promotional profits and they are completely managed and eventually changed by third-party. Cookies actually stored can change at any moment because of the technical strategies used by advertisers, users and their technical representatives. So instead of listing them, FoodiesTrip will list the corresponding firms authorized to publish the advertisement on the Site.

Those services are provided by external operators, and they have different functionalities according to the user’s relationship with the external subject (for example, a cookie provided by Facebook can have additional features if the user has a Facebook account). These cookies can give information also to other subjects that may be different from FoodiesTrip because of the navigation on the site.

Alessio Poliandri
My name is Alessio Poliandri. I work in the IT sector. I am Fabrizio Doremi's “business brother” and I share with him the birth year, the Wiloca and Foodiestrip foundation and many passions that only nerds can understand. For example the Star Wars soundtrack. For you is just a soundtrack. For us it's an hymn. With initiation ritual.
