What are cookies?

General information

Cookies are data files which your browser automatically stores on the hard disk of your device at the request of our Website. They allow us to collect information on the users’ visits to the Website.

Cookies are stored, according to the users’ preferences, by your browser on the specific device (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies, such as transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behaviour and on the use of services. Therefore, we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by using the term “cookies”.

First-party” cookies are directly stored by the website you visit, while “third-party” cookies are set by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting. The duration of the cookies installed may be limited to the browsing session or extended for a longer period, even after the user has left the website. These are called persistent cookies and their duration is set by the server. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited. To disable, remove or block the cookies you can use your browser settings (as further detailed below) or the DoNotTrack option, if available. In case the cookies are disabled, the Controller will not be able to ensure the full usability of the Website.

Types of cookies we use

Technical cookies

These cookies are essential for the correct functioning of the Website and for some of its features; for example, they allow the user to view the pages of waldstein-art.ch in the language chosen or set in the browser settings. Without technical cookies, the services offered through our Website may be partially or totally inaccessible. Since they are necessary to browse the Website and to use the requested services, the Controller does not need your consent to set these cookies: the setting takes place automatically when you access the Website. Nevertheless, you can block or remove technical cookies by changing the configuration of your browser setting. In this case, we inform you that you may not be able to access certain areas of the Website or to use some of our services.

Analytics cookies (third-party cookies)

These cookies are used to collect aggregate data statistics. The analytics cookies we use are third-party cookies, as they are not placed directly by the Controller. Therefore, they are not set by Waldstein, but by a third party.

Provision of personal data

With the exception of technical cookies, strictly necessary to browse the Website, the provision of data is left to the data subject who decides to browse the Website after having read the short cookie policy provided for in the cookie banner, and to use the services that require the installation of cookies.

The data subject can therefore avoid the installation of cookies other than technical cookies by keeping the banner open (therefore by not closing the banner), by clicking on “Technical cookies only” or by managing the browser settings (as mentioned below); in this way, the user will accept to use technical cookies, such as those related to the language settings. By clicking on “Accept all” instead, the user will give his/her consent to all cookies, including third-party cookies. Some features of the Website will not be available without your consent to these cookies: for example, in order to use the Contacts form the Google reCAPTCHA test, which uses third-party cookies, must be enabled; if you try to fill in the form without prior consent to these cookies, the Website will inform you that you need to enable them in order to send the form.
