Cookies work in conjunction with the website content and normally have the function of improving the usability and browsing experience on the web (technical cookies). Some types of cookies also allow you to know the contents displayed, the choices selected and any use of the site by the user. This functionality also allows us to offer the most useful and relevant advertising to every single user (profiling cookies). A website can use self-developed cookies (first-party cookies) or cookies developed by third-party companies (third-party cookies)

We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-Personal Data. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered Personal Data by local law, we also treat these identifiers as Personal Data.

In addition to allowing an easy use of the Sites, Eataly uses cookies for various purposes, including: (i) identifying the user when logging in; (ii) store the products saved in the cart for purchase; (iii) avoid fraudulent use of accounts or payments; (iv) perform user profiling and then provide information on the products of interest to you, or other personalised contents or offers; (v) provide promotions, content, advertising, related to the user and his preferences and to remember these preferences; (vi) carry out market research; (vii) improve the Sites, the offer of Eataly products, and their marketing, etc.

Their complete deactivation may preclude many features, or the proper browsing or viewing of the Site or other web pages.

Acceptance and waiver of cookies. At the time of the user's first access to the Sites and, in any case, until a choice is expressed, the user will be asked to provide his consent to the use of third-party analytical cookies and profiling cookies.
