Cookies & Related Technologies Policy
pucciManuli would like you to know more about the web technologies that we use to run our Website. These technologies are meant to provide as many people with the best browse and purchase experience possible, and provide advertising, site-experience, and other benefits to this end.
Types of Cookie and Related Technologies (“Cookie Technologies”)
Cookies - Cookies are small data files sent from a server to your web browser. They are stored in your browser’s cache and allow a website or a third party to recognize your browser. There are three primary types of cookies:
Session cookies are specific to a particular visit and carry information as you view different pages so you don’t have to re-enter information every time you change pages or attempt to checkout. Session cookies expire and delete themselves automatically in a short period of time e.g. after you leave the Website or when you close your web browser.
Persistent cookies remember certain information about your preferences for viewing the site, and allow pucciManuli to recognize you each time you return. Persistent cookies are stored on your browser cache or mobile device until you choose to delete them, and otherwise typically delete themselves at expiration.
Third-party cookies are placed by a party other than pucciManuli, and may gather browsing activity across multiple websites and across multiple sessions. They are usually a type of persistent cookie and are stored until you delete them or they expire based on the time period set in each third-party cookie. Most notably, third-party cookies allow third-party server to show you items that you’ve shown interest in, either directly or indirectly.
Cookies store data about your use, but they are helpful because they allow us to help pucciManuli function and customize your experience.
Other Technologies - In addition to cookies, there are other similar technologies used by pucciManuli and elsewhere on the web and/or in mobile ecosystems.
Web pixels: These are tiny graphics (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web beacons”) with a unique identifier that are used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are rendered invisibly on web pages when you open a page.
Social widgets: These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with those social media services when you view a web page or a mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party
UTM codes: These are strings that can appear in a URL (the “Uniform Resource Locator,” which is typically the http or https address entered to go to a web page) when a user moves from one web page or website to another, where the string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.
pucciManuli, LLC and pucciManuli.com (Website) uses Cookie Technologies to recognize your logged-in state on pucciManuli.com, to understand what purchases visitors and clients are interested in, to make pucciManuli.com function for you (e.g. keep track of what you put in your shopping cart), and to help your browsing experience and use of the Website feel more customized. More generally, pucciManuli uses Cookie Technologies for the following:
Security and Authentication (Strictly Necessary) - Some cookies and similar technology functions are necessary and vital to ensuring the Website works properly for visitors and clients, such as maintaining the security, safety, and integrity of the Website, authentication and logging into pucciManuli.com (including remembering permissions and consents you have granted), and ensuring the ability to securely complete transactions.
Account and User Preferences - Some technologies are used to remember your account and preferences over time, such as remembering your account or keeping yourself logged in when returning to the Website, maintaining your choices on Website features and how you want the Website to appear and customizing content based on how you use the Website
Social networks may also work with the Website or with you for analytics or for marketing purposes, as discussed below. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences for these social networks and their tools and widgets via your account with the social network.
Performance and Analytics - Some technologies help provide performance data on how the Website is functioning in order to improve the Website, including, for example, data on site and app functionality and speed to help us optimize the Website, how the Website is used to help us improve your experience on the Website, and detecting, gathering and/or reporting on bugs to help make the Website function more efficiently and/or better.
The Website also employs Google Analytics to help understand how pucciManuli is used by its community. For some of the advertising features listed below, like retargeting, data from Google Analytics may be combined with pucciManuli’s first-party data and third-party cookies (like Google’s advertising cookies). To learn more about how Google Analytics works, please visit this Google guide.
Marketing Services - pucciManuli may partner with third-party service providers that may use various Cookie Technologies to permit us and them to learn about what ads you see and click when you visit the Website, the Apps, and affiliated sites or to show you ads on and off the Website. These technologies may include:
- Frequency capping, which limits the number of times a user’s browser or mobile device displays the same ad;
- Attribution tracking, which estimates what advertising or marketing source brought someone to pucciManuli, or determines what marketing source led to actions like a visit or a purchase;
- Remarketing, which shows relevant ads to an audience based on prior shopping and browsing patterns on pucciManuli;
- Audience targeting, which refers to targeting advertisements to a large audience based on the audience’s known or inferred demographics;
- Cross-device recognition, which recognizes actions across multiple devices or browsers.
Some third-party service providers may provide information like demographics, cross-device information, or interest categories from a combination of sources that, while not identifying you personally, permit us to provide you with more relevant and useful advertising. In some cases, this information may have non-marketing performance analytics uses as well.
These technologies allow a partner to recognize your computer or mobile device each time you visit pucciManuli or other websites and mobile applications based on data like a cookie, your IP address, or device ID, but do not allow access to other personal information from the Website. However, these technologies may allow us or a third party to recognize you, either from a single device or across devices, over time. These third parties are required to follow applicable laws, self-regulatory programs, and Website data protection rules where applicable. However, the Website does not have control over these third parties, who each have their own privacy policies and privacy practices.

Certain Cookie Technologies are employed to make the Site function for its intended purpose, and are provided based on contractual necessity based on your agreement with the Website to perform the services you have requested.
