What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that a user’s device (computer, tablet or mobile) downloads when it visits a website. They allow the site to “remember” your computer, but not specifically who is using it, and improve your user experience. By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other customer information when, for example, you log-in to the site, then we know that the cookie information relates to you.
What is the scope of cookies?
Cookies are used generally for different purposes, such as letting the user navigate between pages efficiently, implementing the user's preferences and generally improving their browsing experience, by customizing the website according to their navigation and user profile. They can also help ensure that the adverts that the user sees online are more relevant to them and their interests.
What cookies do we use?
Our website uses several type of cookies for different purposes as better explained below in “Categories of cookies on App4Dating.com”.
In particular we use:
Session cookies, which only last for the duration of a browsing session. They are usually used to facilitate the access to the services on our website, to authenticate you when you are a registered member, and to remember what a user has put in their ordering cart, and
Persistent cookies, which last for more than one visit. They are used to remember a user’s preferences and actions within the website. In this case, when a user returns to our website, or visits sites that use the same cookies, the site reads the cookies and identifies the user’s browser.
Among these cookies it is possible to refer to:
First party cookies, which are supplied by the website you are visiting, i.e. App4Dating.com and can be read only by such site. For example, the cookies that maintain product(s) in the ordering cart of a user while the user is still surfing the site. First party cookies can be either session or permanent cookies.
Third party cookies, which are meant to collect data on an anonymous way, for example analytics information, including browsing statistics. Other third party cookies are meant to track our visitors’ response to our online promotional activities. This technology uses information about your visits to our website and third parties' sites on which we advertise, to deliver relevant advertisements. We also use this to learn which banner adverts bring users to our website.
Also third party cookies can be either session or permanent cookies.

Pixel Tags: If you agreed to being tracked and/or profiled, we may use other tracking technologies (e.g. web beacons, clear gifs) in the communications we send to you. The purpose of these may be to learn about whether you have read or opened the email, whether you have interacted with any link, e.g. by clicking on it, and if so which ones. This information may be combined with other information we have gathered about you, to help us deliver more interesting communications to you, based on your browsing experience and ordering.
We need your consent to use profiling cookies. At any time, you can manage your preferences for advertising or targeting cookies through your browser settings, see below, or by enabling/disable all third party cookies, see below.
How to manage your cookie preferences?
Most browser applications automatically accept cookies but you can set it to receive an alert each time an operator tries to send you cookies/pixel tags, and/or prevent it from accepting them. On most browsers, the “Help” portion of the toolbar will tell you how to prevent it from accepting cookies, how to have it notify you when you receive cookies/pixel tags, or how to disable cookies/pixel tags altogether.
Below are pages describing these settings in more detail for each browser:
If you use multiple browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) you must repeat this procedure with each one, and if you connect to the web from multiple devices (e.g. from work and at home), then you will need to set your preferences on each browser on each device.
Please note that if you disable completely cookies from the browser, then it is possible that some parts of our website will not function properly such as the normal surfing of the site, the purchase activity, and finally you may also lose any personalized activity such as the advertising you receive when you visit this website.
