This document is an integral part of the information on the processing of personal data, available at the following link: The website  https://www.blundstone.it/en (hereinafter the "SITE") uses cookies in order to improve your browsing experience.    
WHAT ARE COOKIES?  
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send directly to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user (so-called first-party cookies). While browsing a site, the user can also receive cookies from different sites or web servers on their terminal (so-called third-party cookies); this happens because on the visited website there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, they are cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. Cookies may have a duration limited to a single browsing session on the browser (so-called session cookies), and in this case they are automatically deactivated when the user closes the browser; or they may have a predetermined expiry date and, in this case, they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until that expiration date, continuing to collect information during different browsing sessions on the browser (so-called permanent cookies). Cookies are used for various functions. Some are necessary to allow you to browse the Site and take advantage of its functions (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, in aggregate or not, on the number of users who access the Site and how the Site is used (so-called monitoring or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to trace your consumer profile and display advertisements on the Site that may be of interest to you, as they are consistent with your tastes and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies). To learn more about these different categories of cookies, continue reading this information. Find out how they work and what they are for, and freely choose whether to consent to their use or prevent it.

If users do not wish to receive third-party cookies on their terminal equipment, they may at any time, via the links below, or via the selection/deselection options in the "Customise" area of the cookie banner (accessible at any time via the "Modify your consent" button below) exclude their receipt.   The following table shows all the cookies present on the Site, with the evidence of their specific characteristics and, in the case of third-party cookies, links to the respective privacy policies so that you can consciously decide whether to consent to their use and which cookies block or delete, if any.
