A cookie is a file that is downloaded to the computer or device used (Smartphone, tablet, computer) when accessing certain web pages.

However, the type of data obtained is restricted. The information gathered is related to the number of pages visited, the city the IP address is assigned to, from where you access, the number of user visits we receive, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the length of the visit, the browser you use, the operator or type of device you visit from. Data about your name and surname or the postal address you connect from is never collected, under any circumstances.

A user may allow, block or delete cookies installed on their computer by configuring their installed browser options. Consult the following links for the main browsers:

You may choose not to have a unique web analytics cookie identification number assigned to your computer to avoid the aggregation and analysis of data collected on this website.
Using the following instructions you can stop third-party companies from using cookies on your computer:
Go to google.com/ads/preferences and ensure that the “Ads based on your interests” setting is turned off.
Go to choice.microsoft.com and turn off the “Personalized ads in this browser” setting to only allow generic ads.

Like Google, Amazon too delivers interest-based ads on its own websites as well as external websites.
