Cookie Policy

In line with European legislation, Panini aims to ensure that every website user understands what cookies are and why they are used for so as the users can make informed decisions whether they want the cookies on their devices or not.

A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of user’s computer through an anonymous code that may identify the computer but not the user and passively track its activities on the website.

The cookies are classified in four categories, upon their functions:

  • Strictly necessary cookies
  • Performance cookies
  • Functionality cookies
  • Advertising cookies

Panini websites use the following cookies categories, which consent is not required for the delivery of these:

  1. Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential in order to enable the user to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services the user has asked for, like login into the website or create shopping baskets, cannot be provided.
  2. Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. These cookies can be compared to “technical cookies” when alternately (i) are directly used by the site’s administrator to collect information in aggregate form or (ii) are managed by third parties and are adopted specific means in order to reduce the cookies capability to identify users (for example, by masking significant IP address portions) and the third parties uses them exclusively for the provision of the service. For example they store cookies data separately without crossing them or enrich with any available personal data.
  3. Functionality cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember choices the user makes (such as username, language or the region the user is in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to provide services the user has asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track the user's browsing activity on other websites. These cookies are also called technical cookies.

All the above mentioned cookies are called persistent as their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation.

Google Analytics cookies

Every Panini website includes components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). These are third-party cookies collected and managed in aggregate way to monitor and improve the performance of our websites (analytic cookies).

By default Google Analytics uses cookies to collect and analyze information on the behavior of users of the website, including IP address. This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports on the activities of users on the website. This site: (i) uses IP masking and anonymization so Google Analytics removes the last octet of the user's IP address prior to using and storage them (for more information, read about IP anonymization in Google Analytics, or visit Google security and privacy overview),  (ii)it does not use and do not allow third parties to use the analysis tool of Google to track or collect personally identifiable information. The use of these cookies is subject to contractual restrictions with Google, in which it is recalled the Google’s commitment in using these cookies only for the service provision, to store them separately and not to "enrich" or "cross them" with other information available. On this point Panini informs that there’s no use of any additional service of Google Analytics and there’s no advertising option activated or data sharing with Google.
