Cookie Policy

We, Gourmet´s International S.r.l., with legal seat in Italy, Merano 39012 (BZ), Via B. Johannes 9, use cookies and similar software tools such as HTML5 Storage or Local Shared Objects (together “cookies”) to identify your interests and particularly popular areas of our websites and use this information to improve the design of our websites and make them even more user-friendly. For the same purposes we use the analysis tools Google Analytics; cookies may also be used here.

 

FUNCTIONS AND USE OF COOKIES

Cookies are small files that are placed on your desktop, notebook or mobile device by a website you visit. From this we can, for example, recognize whether there has already been a connection between your device and our websites, or which language or other settings you prefer. Cookies may also contain personal data.

By using our websites, you agree to the use of cookies.

PURPOSE OF COOKIE USAGE:

We use cookies to make the WineHunter website easier to use, to deliver a personalised experience on our websites, and to better tailor our products, services and websites to your interests and needs. Cookies are used to help speed up your future activities and your experience on the WineHunter website.

Lastly, we use cookies to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how people use our websites and to help us improve their structure and content and also help us measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on WineHunter and non-WineHunter websites.

More detailed information about the types of cookies we use and for what purposes, can be found in the below relevant section.

USED COOKIES:

There are two types of cookies used:

  1. Session cookies expire as soon you close the browser and are most commonly used to help users navigate the site by storing information on their location and the pages they have visited. An example of this could be a site with a login process; in order for the site to remember that you are logged in a cookie must be stored, otherwise every time you move to a new page you will be logged out.
  2. Persistent or permanent cookies remain on your computer once you have closed the browser down, relying on a time limit for self-deletion. Most of these range from 30 days to 1 year, but it’s possible for them to last until 3012. These are most commonly used for personalising a web experience, so that the site “remembers” you from previous visits, or other sites, and can display relevant information

All cookies can be permanently disabled using your browser’s security options, although most websites will fail to function correctly without cookies.
