Cookie Policy

Dear Visitor (hereinafter, "You" or the "User"),

This website (hereafter the "Website") is owned by bolttech device protection (Italy) s.r.l., with registered office Corso Monforte, 2 – 20122 Milan (MI), Italy (hereinafter, "We" or the “Company”).

As our Website uses some of the so called "cookies" for different purposes, this cookie policy explains what the cookies are and how they are used on the Website. This cookie policy, also pursuant to Section 14 of the Regulation EU 2016/679 (the "Regulation"), explains how we collect such data, for what purposes and what your rights are.

Some cookies (so called first-party cookies) are stored directly by us. Through such cookies, the Company collects and processes some of your personal data. Other cookies (so called third-party cookies) are stored by third parties.

Please do read carefully this cookie policy and the general Privacy Policy of the Website in order to make an informed choice.

A. What are cookies and what are they used for.

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his/her terminal (usually to the browser). Such cookies are stored into the user's terminal in order to be retransmitted to the same websites when the user accesses them again (so called first-party cookies). During the browsing on a website, the user may receive on his/her terminal also cookies of different websites or webservers (so called third-party cookies); this happens because the visited websites contain items such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other websites that are hosted on a server other than the one on which the requested page is hosted. In other words, these are cookies that are set by a website different from the one that the User is currently visiting.

The cookies may be limited to a single browsing session (so called session cookies) and, in such case, they automatically disable when the User closes the browser. Some other cookies may have a preset expiry date and, in such case, they will remain stored and active in the User’s hard-disk until such expiry date, continuing to collect information in the course of the subsequent browsing sessions (so called permanent cookies).

Cookies are used for different purposes. Some of them are used to allow the user to visit a website and use its features (so called technical cookies). Some other cookies are used in order to collect statistical information, in aggregated or non-aggregated form, about the number of users who access a Website and how a website is used (so called monitoring or analytics cookies). Lastly, other cookies are used to track the User’s profile as a consumer and display advertising on a website which are consistent with Your interests (so called, profiling cookies).

The Website makes use exclusively of technical cookies and analytics cookies and does not make use of profiling cookies.

For further details about these categories of cookies please keep reading this cookie policy. Find out how they work and what they are used for and freely choose whether to provide or not Your consent to their use.

Technical cookies are used on the Website for the sole purpose of allowing You to visit the Website and use its features. These cookies are always first-party cookies, as they are stored directly by us through the Website.

Some technical cookies are necessary to provide You with an optimized user experience or to allow your authentication on the Website, e.g. to purchase something on the Website or access your personal area (so called navigation cookies). Normally navigation cookies are session cookies and, therefore, once the internet browser is closed, they are automatically disabled.

Other technical cookies are useful to allow the User to save some of his/her preferences (e.g. the language or the country of origin) without having to reset such preferences each time You visits the Website (so called functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, because they remain stored in Your computer even after the interest browser has been closed, until the relevant expiry date or until you delete them from your browser.

As provided for by the applicable privacy laws, Your prior consent to the set-up of these cookies is not necessary. Obviously, you can freely decide to block the set-up of the technical cookies, by changing your internet browser settings (please refer to paragraph D, n. 1 to know how to do it).
