WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies (or markers) are small text files created by the web server and stored on a user's device when said user accesses a particular website, for the purpose of storing and transporting information. These markers are sent by the web server to the user's device (usually to the browser) and stored so that each time the user visits the website, the device can be recognised. Cookies are sent back to the website by the user's device each time the user visits the website.

First and third-party cookies

Cookies can be installed not just by the operator of the website visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also by different websites that install them through the initial website (third-party cookies) that enables them to be recognised. On the website visited, there are various elements (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than that of the website visited.

WHAT COOKIES DOES THIS WEBSITE USE?

When visiting a website, different types of cookies, listed below, may be stored on the user’s device.

Strictly necessary cookies (always enabled)

These cookies are necessary for the website to function properly and cannot be disabled in our systems. Usually, these are only set in response to actions that constitute a request for a service, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in or filling out forms. The user can adjust the settings of their browser to block or receive warnings about these cookies, but, as consequence, certain parts of the website will not work. These cookies do not store personal information. Given the purpose they serve, it is not possible to disable this type of cookie and the user’s prior consent is not required for them to be installed.

Performance cookies with reduced identification ability (always enabled)

Cookies in this category are used to collect information on the use of the site. These cookies are generated by other websites (Third Parties) in order to provide content related to the visited website – they adopt specific tools to reduce the identification ability of the analytical cookies used (for instance, by hiding large portions of the IP address and/or by making the data anonymous).

Performance cookies

These cookies detect the number of visits and sources of traffic in order to measure and improve the performance of the Shoearena website. These help us to identify popular and less popular pages and see how visitors browse the website. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. Performance cookies cannot be deactivated and the user’s prior consent is not required for them to be installed.

Functionality cookies

These cookies enable the website to provide features and advanced customisation capabilities. They can be set by either Shoearena or third-party providers whose services have been added to the pages of the Shoearena website. If these cookies are not authorised, some or all of these services may not function properly.

Targeting/advertising cookies

These cookies can be set through the Shoearena website by external partners of Shoearena. These may be used by said partners to build a profile of the visitor’s interests and subsequently display relevant adverts on other websites. Targeting/advertising cookies do not directly store personal information, but uniquely identify your browser and internet device. Consenting to targeting/advertising cookies is optional, but if they are not authorised, the visitor may receive advertisements that are less relevant to their own personal preferences.

Legal basis of processing

  • Strictly necessary cookies and performance cookies: execution of a contract to which the user is a party, namely a request by the user to access and use the contents of the website;
  • Functionality cookies: consent;
  • Targeting/advertising cookies: consent.

How to enable and disable the installation of cookies

The visitor may refuse the use of cookies or change their settings at any time. Since cookies are linked to the browser used, they can be disabled directly from the browser by refusing/revoking consent to the use of cookies, or through the preference centre by clicking on “cookie settings”. Disabling cookies may prevent you from using certain website features properly. In particular, services provided by third parties may not be accessible and may not be displayed correctly.

Policy and banner

When the visitor first accesses the website, a banner appears with a link to this policy. By continuing to browse the website by accessing different areas and elements featured (e.g. images or links), the visitor consents to the use of strictly necessary technical cookies and functionality cookies. That said, by consenting to the use of cookies through the banner, the user enables all types of cookies listed above. Consent to the use of cookies is recorded with a special "technical cookie".
