(version 2.0 dated 1 August 2022)
Dear Visitor/Visitor (hereinafter referred to as "You" or the "User"),
This Internet website https://www.cookist.com (hereinafter, the "Website") is owned by the company Youlike S.r.l., with registered office in Via Santa Lucia 97, 80132 – Napoli, Italy, VAT No. and Fiscal Code No. 06769051217 (hereinafter, "We" or the "Company").
Since our Website uses the so-called cookies for several purposes, we hereby aim at explaining to You what cookies are and how they are used on the Website.
Other cookies (so-called third-party cookies), on the other hand, are conveyed and controlled by third parties, as explained below. This policy contains links to the policies published by these third parties, which we ask you to read carefully.
The cookies are small text files that the websites visited by a user send directly to its terminal (usually, to the browser), where they are memorised to be transmitted to the same websites at the following visit of the same by the same user (the so called proprium first party cookies). During the web surfing of a website, a user may receive on its terminal also cookies of other websites or of other web servers (the so called third parties cookies); this happens because there may be elements on the visited website, such as images, maps, sounds, links to specific web pages of other domains that are on servers other than the server on which the requested page is placed. In other words, such cookies are set up on a website other than the one that is currently visited.
The cookies may have a duration limited to a single session of navigation on the browser (the so called session cookies), and, in such event, they deactivate automatically once the browser is closed by the user; or may have a predetermined duration and, in such event, they will remain memorised and active on your hard disk until the expiry date, thus continuing collecting information during different sessions of navigation on the browser (the so called permanent cookies).
The cookies are used for several purposes. Certain cookies are necessary in order to allow You to surf the Website and benefit of its functionalities (the so-called technical cookies). Other cookies are used in order to obtain statistical information, whether in aggregate or not, about the number of users accessing the Website and how the Website is used (the so-called monitoring cookies or analytics). To the end, other cookies are used in order to track your consumer profile and make You viewing advertisings that may be of interest for You, since complying with your preferences and your consumer habits (the so-called profiling cookies).
In order to know more in details such different categories of cookies please continue reading such policy. Please discover how they works and for what use they are for, and choose freely if you want to consent to their use or prevent the same.
The technical cookies are used on the Website for the sole purpose to make You able to surf the Website and allow You to use its functionalities. They are first party cookies since they are conveyed directly by us on the Website.
Certain technical cookies are essential to offer You an optimal surfing experience or in order to allow You to authenticate on the Website, for example in order to make a purchase on the Website or to enter into your reserved area (the so-called surfing cookies). The surfing cookies are normally session cookies and, therefore, once the surfing browser is closed, are automatically deactivated.
The technical cookies are useful in order to allow You to memorise your preferences (for example, the language or the Country) without setting up the same at the following visits (the so-called functionalities cookies). For such reason, the functionalities cookies are often lasting cookies, since they remain memorised on your computer also after the closure of the surfing browser, until the scheduled expiry date or until when you decide to eliminate the same.
In this regard, technical cookies with the following characteristics and/or functions are used on the Website, by way for example: i) cookies that may contain authentication tokens of the registered user; ii) cookies that define the user's registration status; iii) cookies that allow the technical management of push notifications; iv) cookies that may contain a flag that is saved when the user logs out; v) cookies that may contain authentication tokens to manage and remember expressed privacy preferences and similar.
As provided by the Applicable Law, your prior consent is not required for the installation of technical cookies. You are free to block the installation of technical cookies by modifying the settings of your browser (read paragraph E, no. 1 to find out how to do this). However, please note that by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently deleting them, your ability to access the Website, to use all or part of it, to enable or disable certain functions or to receive certain services may be totally or partially compromised.
Should you consent to the installation of cookies in this way, we will keep track of your consent by means of a technical cookie or other technical means linked to the use of CMP, which allow us to keep up-to-date records of your choices in compliance with Applicable Law. In the latter case, the Company may process, for this purpose, metadata relating to the granular choices made by the User: the possible expression of consent, the details of the granular purposes for which the User has given consent, as well as the possible choice of the User to continue browsing by maintaining the default settings by pressing the relevant button provided by CMP.
In this way, We will ensure that you do not see the CMP on cookies during your subsequent visits to the Website and we will keep track of your choices in line with the requirements of Applicable Law.

“Ciao People”) – “Ad Manager 360” service of Google Ireland Limited
(hereinafter referred to as “AdServer” and “Google” respectively).
The profiling cookies of the Google’s AdServer allow Ciao People to collect data in its capacity as “data controller”.
Moreover, with regard to the AdServer service offered by Google and used by Ciao People, Google declares itself to be the autonomous “data controller” of the Users’ personal data. Therefore, for the collection of data and for the processing resulting from the use of the AdServer, Ciao People has no control or power over the processing carried out by Google, as a mere end-user of the service (which is technically managed by Google).
Users may object to the use of the AdServer’s profiling cookies via the following link: https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous?hl=en.
The Company also informs Users that the Google’s AdServer used by Ciao People may enable the use by advertisers or other third parties of cookies linked to advertising campaigns in order to collect information on the User’s browsing activities. Similarly, other partners of the Company indicated in the CMP may process the User’s personal data in order to deliver advertisements also based on interests. For the relevant information, please refer to the links found next to each vendor within CMP.
There are several options to manage, disable and remove the cookies.
Please be careful in making your choice. Indeed, by blocking the receipt of all the cookies indiscriminately, including the technical ones, without providing a specific exception for the Website, you might be no more able to surf on the Website or to benefit, in whole or in part, of its functionalities. Furthermore, removing all the cookies from the browser, also the technical cookies could be removed and, therefore, you could remove the preferences set up by using the Website.
Some of our employees, appointed by us as persons in charge of the processing, in accordance with Article 29 of the Regulation, may carry out maintenance work on the computer systems that house your data, without ever being able to access their actual content.
Personal data may be stored on servers managed by third parties (e.g., suppliers of IT systems) or may be managed by subjects specialized in online advertising, who act as data processors, pursuant to Article 28 of the Regulation, on the basis of a specific appointment in writing by the Company.
Your personal data will not be disclosed to third party data controllers or disseminated.
Your personal data, collected by the Company by means of the technical cookies referred to in paragraph B above, will be stored for the time strictly necessary to carry out the primary purposes described in this policy, or in any case as necessary to protect the rights and interests of both Users and the Company.
As regards the duration of the cookies themselves, including third-party cookies, and the retention periods of the data collected by the third parties, please refer to the tables included in this policy.
Please note that, subject to the conditions and safeguards set out in the Regulation, your data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Such countries may not offer a level of privacy protection and protection of personal data comparable to that guaranteed by the Applicable Law; where the Company acts as data controller we will take data security into utmost consideration and, therefore, we will handle such transfers with all due care and guarantees in accordance with the Applicable Law and, in particular, in accordance with articles 45 (Transfer on the basis of an adequacy decision) and 46 (Transfer subject to adequate safeguards) of the Regulation.
In particular, for the provision of the Google Analytics service (referred to in paragraph C above), the Company’s supplier, Google Ireland Limited, may transfer the pseudonymous personal data of the Users of the Website outside the EEA, on the basis of the so-called Standard Contractual Clauses and, in particular, to the United States, taking additional measures to ensure that this is done in accordance with the Regulation itself. Further information on the additional security measures applied by Google Ireland Limited for transfers of personal data outside the European Union can be found in the following resources provided by the provider itself: “Regarding international data transfers in Google Analytics” (see link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/11609059?hl=en) and “Safeguards for international data transfers with Google's advertising and analytics products” (see link: https://services.google.com/fh/files/misc/safeguards_for_international_data_transfers.pdf). In view of the scope of the processing, the nature of the data processed, and the risks of the processing carried out by the supplier, the Company considered the additional security measures that the supplier guarantees to adopt to protect the personal data processed on behalf of the Company to be appropriate.
