This policy applies only to the website https://www.mitsishotels.com/ and not to any other websites that the user might consult or access through links that the Website may include.

Cookies are text files that contain bundles of information that are stored on the directory of the web browser of a user’s computer or mobile device (e.g. notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) every time a website is accessed online through the browser. Whenever this website is visited again subsequently, the browser sends these cookies to the website that originated them or to another website.

A cookie cannot bring up any other data from the user’s hard drive, nor can it transmit computer viruses or obtain email addresses. Every cookie is unique to the user’s browser.

TYPES OF COOKIES USED

1.1 TECHNICAL COOKIES
Technical cookies are used to make certain sections of the WEBSITE function correctly. The Website uses only technical cookies, those that are “strictly necessary to transmit a communication or provide a specific service as requested by a subscriber or user” (Article 4 par. 5 of Law 3471/2006).

They can be divided into browser cookies and session cookies, which ensure that the Website functions properly:

  • Analytics cookies, which are technical cookies when they are used to measure and analyze overall user numbers and behavior on a particular website;
  • Functionality cookies, which make it possible to tailor the website according to various choices made by the user (e.g. language, etc), in order to provide improved service.

The acquisition and processing of data obtained by the use of technical cookies is necessary if the Website is to function properly. If a user objects to the use of these technical cookies, he/she will not be able to access and view the Website properly. We have divided technical cookies in two categories:

1.2 ADVERTISING COOKIES

Apart from technical cookies, the general rule governing the use of an electronic communication network “to gain access to information stored in the terminal equipment of a subscriber or user” is that prior informed consent must be given by the user, i.e. that the user should opt in rather than opt out.

This means that all cookies that cannot rightly be termed “technical”, and which therefore are more critical for user privacy protection, e.g. those used to provide a profile of the user, promote our products and services or for relevant advertising and marketing issues, may not be installed on users’ terminals unless the user has been adequately informed in advance and has given a valid consent.

THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES

When browsing a website, the user may receive cookies from third parties.

Third-party cookies are installed by a different website from the one the user is browsing. This is because every website may contain elements (pictures, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc,) that are on servers other than that of the website being viewed. 

In the above three tables we designate under “providere” whether cookies originate from third parties.
