Does Mongey use "cookies"?
Yes, the Mongey Website uses "cookies".
The Website uses "cookie" as well as other technologies so that all users have the most pleasurable and efficient browsing experience possible.
What is a "cookie"?
A "cookie" is a small piece of data that is saved usually in the browser of the User’s computer, tablet or smartphone used to surf the web.
Classification of cookies
- According to who issues them: "cookies" can be classified in the following categories:
"A first-party cookie": This is the "cookie" that is stored (more precisely: "saved") in the User’s browser on the instructions provided by the Website visited by the User;
"A third-party cookie": This is the "cookie" that is stored (more precisely: "saved ") in the User’s browser on the instructions provided by other Websites;
At this point, it is natural to ask oneself: "What do other Websites have to do with the fact that I am browsing on only one particular Website?" Well, they are relevant because perhaps banners (advertising spaces) managed by other Websites (or rather loaded from their server) are hosted on the Website you are visiting, which can easily leave their own "cookies" on your mobile device.
- According to the time the “cookie” remains on the User’s device: Depending on their lifecycle, "cookies" can be further classified as follows:
"Session cookies": These are removed when the User closes the browser and that, therefore, have an extremely limited duration;
"Permanent cookies": These are stored for a long period of time. However, this type of "cookie" has an expiry date. "Permanent cookies" enable Websites to recall information and settings on the User’s subsequent visits, making browsing more practical, rapid and efficient.
- According to the function they carry out: These "cookies" can be further classified as follows:
"Technical cookies": These are required to support browsing to provide a service rested by the User. They are not used for other purposes and are usually installed directly by the owner of the Website.
Let’s imagine that a User is authenticated on (logs into) the Website that he/she is visiting. The "technical cookie" that will be issued on the browser of the User’s device and is needed so that the authentication remains active for the entire duration of his/her browsing session. In fact, a good service would not be provided if the User were to be logged out of the Website every 5 seconds, forcing him/her therefore to login again. In this case, the "technical cookie ", keeps the authentication on the Website active (and therefore also the access to all services potentially reserved exclusively to Users that are logged in) until the User stops surfing the internet by closing his/her browser.
It is also important to point out that a "technical cookie" of this kind is programmed to be active much longer than a single browsing session. In fact, it could also last several months. This means that, every time the User goes back to visit the, he/she will find him/herself automatically logged in, because the "technical cookie" stored in his/her browser will make sure that he/she is immediately and automatically recognised by the Website. This type of "cookie" is entirely legitimate also without the User’s authorisation on the browser of whom they are stored.
"Profiling cookies": These are used to create User-related profiles with the aim of sending advertisements on-line according to the preferences shown by the same while browsing on-line.
In the example above, the profiling cookie is a "first-party" cookie. However, very often it happens that this type of cookie is a "third-party" cookie. This is the case every time in which the Website visited hosts third-party advertising (e.g. Google Adsense), which issues "cookies" on the User’s device with the aim of understanding his/her purchasing preferences.
"Analysis and tracking cookies": This type of "cookie" has given rise to a few difficulties regarding its classification, the solution to which appears complicated.
By taking a quick glance, one would likely consider them "profiling cookies". What more than “statistics” would evoke the concept of profiling? However, the law, in reality, considers "analysis cookies" to be instrumental to the functioning of a Website, and for this reason, it includes it in the category of "technical cookies". Therefore, it seems that there is no obligation to request any kind of consent.
Which "cookies" does Mongey use?
- Technical cookies;
- Analysis and tracking cookies: Mongey, with the aim of analysing the use of the Website, avails itself of the web analysis service Google Analytics provided by Google. More specifically, Google Analytics uses "cookie" (both of a temporary and permanent nature) to anonymously collect information on the methods of use of the Website by its Users (including IP addresses) that will be transmitted from the User’s browser to the Google server. The information collected will be used by Google with the aim of assessing the use of the Website by the User, to fill in a report on the activities of the Website useful for operators of the same Website and to provide other services relating to the activities of the Website as well as the use of internet.
Further information on the Google Analytics service and the procedures to follow in order to disable "cookies" can be found by clicking on the following links:
Please note that such data does not enable the personal identification of the User.
Can "cookies" be avoided?
Of course. Each User, if he/she so wishes, can disable them.
Each browser has its own method to either limit or disable cookies.
Here are a few links where it is possible to find information to modify browser settings:
In any case, for those who really do not want to use "cookies", the simplest thing to do is to use the "incognito browsing mode".
The possibility to activate the incognito browsing mode is included in the main browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. By activating such mode, it is possible to surf the web without leaving any trace on the device used.
Therefore, if you wish, you can browse the Mongey Website without using any "cookies" at all, simply by using the "incognito browsing mode" on your browser.

If a minor has provided us with his/her Personal Data without his/her parents’ or guardians’ consent, the parent or guardian should contact us by sending an e-mail to email@example.com to request the deletion of such information.
We use commercially reasonable safety methods to prevent unauthorised access to the Websites, we maintain the accuracy of the data and guarantee the proper use of the information we possess.

It is advisable not to give your password to anyone. Our staff will never ask you for your password during a phone call or in an e-mail unless requested by the User/Member. If you share a computer with other users, it is advisable not to save your log-in credentials (e.g. User ID and password) on that shared computer. Reminder: It is important that Users log out of their account and close the browser window when they finish their browsing session.
No transmission of data on Internet or on any wireless network can be guaranteed as being perfectly safe. Consequently, while we try to protect the Users’/Members’ information in our possession, we are not able to guarantee the safety of all the information that the User provides us and therefore this is carried out at his/her own risk.
