A cookie is a small file that is sent to the browser and saved on your device when you visit a website like www.armani.com ("the website").
Cookies allow the site to function efficiently and improve its services, in addition to providing information to the site owner for statistical or advertising purposes, primarily to personalise your navigation experience by remembering your preferences (for example, remembering the language and currency you set, in order to recognise you at the next visit, etc.)
Our website uses various types of first party cookies (organised and managed by YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP), and third party cookies (organised and managed by third parties based on their own individual privacy policies and not under the control of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP) and similar technologies, each of which has a specific function. Below is a table explaining them.
|TYPE OF COOKIE||FUNCTION|
From the first access these cookies allow the website to function correctly and allow you to view content on your device by recognising the language and market of the country from which you’ve chosen to connect. If you are a registered user, they will allow you to be recognised and to access the services offered from the dedicated areas. Navigation cookies are technical cookies and are needed for the functioning of the website.
These cookies allow, based on your express request, for you to be recognised when you subsequently access the website, so that you do not have to enter your information each time (for example: "Remember me").
These cookies can be first-party (owned by Giorgio Armani) and third-party cookies, like 'Google Analytics' owned by Google. In particular, GA4 enables the collection of data from websites and apps that can be traced back to the data controller in order to perform aggregate statistics (relating, for example, to demographic, technical, economic, and behavioural factors) aimed at optimising and improving navigation without directly identifying the user. The use of GA4 involves the collection of a range of information relating to user activity that qualifies as "personal data" under current data protection legislation. The analyses produced by this solution are carried out without the possibility of accessing the raw data that is recorded: in fact, Giorgio Armani has chosen to implement the Google Tag Manager ("GTM") Server-Side solution offered by Google, which prevents the direct sending of the data collected by the tag directly to Google data centres, by interposing a so-called "server container" owned by the Company. Once the container server receives and processes the data, it sends it via an encrypted HTTPS connection to Google Analytics data centres located in third countries, where it is further encrypted before being forwarded to Google Analytics' processing servers. For more information about Google's policies on the use of analytical cookies, you can refer to the following addresses:
