We distinguish between cookies that are mandatorily required for the technical functions of the Site and such cookies and tracking mechanisms that are not mandatorily required for the technical function of the Site.
We use advertising cookies and tracking mechanisms. We only use such cookies and tracking mechanisms if you have given us your prior consent.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files sent to your device by the Site. Cookies are uploaded onto your device, thus allowing the Site to recognize you and store certain information concerning you, in order to permit or improve the service offered. A cookie usually contains the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the "lifetime" of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
As regards the lifetime of cookies, two types of cookies may be used, "session cookies" and "persistent cookies". Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browsing session. Persistent cookies remain longer on your device, for the duration of each specific cookie, and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).
Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website. Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you (for instance, if you purchase My Star Sky products through our e-Commerce platform) may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
We also use other types of tracking technologies, such as flash cookies, server logs, web beacons or pixel gifs in connection with our Website and services. These technologies are similar to cookies in that they are stored on your device and can be used to maintain information about your activities and preferences.

These cookies do not collect information that can identify users.
"Advertising" cookies may be finally used to keep record of certain behaviours or preferences expressed by you, so as to present content that is more relevant to your interests, in compliance with the applicable data protection laws and upon collection of your express consent if required by law. These cookies may also enable you to share some Site content through social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
