8.    Cookies, Google Analytics and Social Media Plug-ins

When you access or use the Website, we may place so called cookies – small text files – or similar tools on your computer. We use these cookies to recognize you as a user of the Website, to customize content, to improve the Website's performance and to enhance your user experience.

  1. Categories of Cookies we use

Depending on their function and intended purpose, cookies we may use can be divided into the following categories: functional cookies, performance cookies, and advertising cookies.

  • Functional cookies: These cookies serve a variety of purposes to the presentation, functionality and performance of a website and in particular to enhance visitors’ experience and enjoyment of the website. They enable a website to save details that have already been provided (e.g. user name, your location or language choices) and offer the visitors improved, more personal functions. Functional cookies are used, for example, to remember things like your log-in information. These cookies cannot track your movement on other websites.
  • Performance cookies: These cookies are used to collect information how a website is used – for example how visitors came to our website, which pages a visitor opens most frequently, how they navigated around our website during their visit and whether they receive error messages from a page. We also may use these cookies to provide us with certain statistical and analytics information, such as how many visitors came to our website. These cookies are used to monitor the level of activities of the Website and to improve the performance of the Website.
  • Advertising cookies enable the website owner or a third party service provider to place ads on the website of the website owner or on websites of third parties with products that the user may like, so that the advertisement the user see can be more relevant to the user’s preferences or interests (sometimes referred to as "targeting cookies"). They may also be used to evaluate effectiveness of advertising and promotion.

These cookies may be placed by us or a third party on our behalf. To learn more about cookies and how they are used, please visit:

  1. Google Analytics

On your computer, we store the cookies of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service that is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

The cookies of Google Analytics allow an analysis of the use of the website by you and other website users that Google provides to us. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our Website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information may include number of times a user visits the website, dates of the first and last visit, duration of the visits, the page from where the user accessed the website, the search engine the user used to access the website or the link they clicked on, the place in the world from where the user accesses, etc. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on your website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and internet usage for us.

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on our Website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Website.

  1. Google AdWords conversion tracking

This Website uses the online advertising service ‘Google AdWords’ and, as part of that, conversion tracking. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). A conversion-tracking cookie is stored whenever a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. These cookies deactivate after 90 days and are not for the purpose of personal identification. If you visit certain pages of this Website while the cookie is still active, Google and we may know that you clicked on the ad and were directed to this page. Every Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked across AdWords customers’ websites. The information collected via conversion cookies helps Zoccolillo compile conversion statistics. We find out how many users have clicked on our ad and been directed to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive any information that would enable us to identify the individual user. If you want to disable tracking, you can deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie in your internet browser settings. You will therefore not be included in conversion tracking statistics.

For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, see the Google Privacy Policy:

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

  1. Retargeting [What cookies are used, e.g. DoubleClick cookie is very popular]

Our Website uses retargeting technology. We use such technology to make our internet offering more relevant to you. It enables internet users who have previously shown an interest in our shop and our products to be addressed by advertisements on our partners’ websites. We believe that displaying personalised, interest-based advertisements is generally more useful to the internet user than advertising that has no personal relevance. These advertisements are displayed on our partners’ sites based on cookie technology and analysis of previous user behavior. This form of advertising is completely pseudonymised. No personal data is stored and no user profile is associated with your personal data. You consent to the installation of cookies and therefore to the collection, storage and use of your user data. Furthermore, you agree that your cookie data will continue to be stored after your browser session has ended and that it may, for example, be retrieved when you next visit the website. This consent may be withdrawn at any time with future effect by disabling cookies in your browser settings.

  1. Remarketing tags

This Website uses remarketing tags. A remarketing tag is a designated JavaScript element that is inserted in the Website’s source code. When a user accesses a page on this Website containing a remarketing tag, an online advertising provider (e.g. Google) places a cookie on that user’s computer and directs it to relevant remarketing audience lists. This cookie also serves to run remarketing campaigns (‘interest-based advertising’) on other websites. Studies have shown that the display of interest-based ads is more useful to users than advertising that has no direct connection to their interests or previously visited websites. Third-party providers, including Google, use these cookies to deliver ads based on a user’s previous visits to our Website. No personal data is stored in the process. Users of this Website can find out how to disable the use of cookies by referring to Google’s Ad Settings page. Users can also disable the use of third-party cookies by visiting the opt-out page of the Network Advertising Initiative and implementing the settings it specifies.

Facebook pixels installed on our Website flag you anonymously as a visitor to our Website without identifying you as an individual. If you later log in to Facebook, a non-reversible and non-personal hashed value from your user data is shared with Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes. This means that Facebook can associate the visit to our Website with your user account. We can use the information collected to display Facebook ads. Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel only to display the Facebook ads we have activated to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our Website. This means that the Facebook Pixel enables us to ensure that our Facebook ads match the users' potential interests and do not bother them. Moreover, the Facebook Pixel allow us to determine the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and marketing purposes, since we are able to see whether users were forwarded to our Website after clicking a Facebook ad. The Facebook cookie is retrieved for the Website Custom Audiences product. Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collected via Facebook and subsequent processing and use of that data, as well as settings options for protection of your privacy, are contained in Facebook’s data protection policy, which can be found at and at among other locations.

Data will only be sent to the social media provider, once the user activates the social media plug-ins by clicking on the chosen plugin. The user can thus choose when to activate them. Should the user do so, the social media providers are able to establish a direct connection to the user during his or her visit on the Website, which allows the provider to be aware of the user's visit and may analyse the respective information. The subsequent processing of the personal data will be conducted in the responsibility of the social media provider according to data protection and privacy laws and according to its data protection policies published on its website (such as,, www.instagram or Please read carefully the privacy policies of your social networks for detailed information about their collection and transfer of personal data, your rights, and how you can achieve satisfactory privacy settings.

We have implemented various technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised use, disclosure or access, in particular where processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing and misuse.

Unfortunately, transmission of information via the internet is not wholly secure. Although we do our utmost to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is done so at your own risk. For this reason, you are always free to transfer your personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
