Cookie policy

What are cookies?

Horse Museum, in line with the European legislature, wants to ensure that each user understands what cookies are and how they are used so that he can decide whether or not to accept their use.
The cookie is a small file containing a unique identification number that is stored by the site on the user's device and is used both to allow access to certain features and to passively monitor the activities of the device on the site itself.
The Privacy Guarantor divides cookies into:

  • technical cookies;
  • profiling cookies.


Technical cookies

They allow navigation of the site and access to all its features.
They can be used to improve users' browsing experience.


Profiling cookies

They memorize the user's preferences expressed while surfing the net (and therefore also on other sites) to send advertising messages in line with these preferences.


What kind of cookies does Horse Museum Foundation use?

Horse Museum Foundation is quite sensitive to the issue of privacy and has decided to avoid as much as possible the unwanted disclosure of sensitive data and preferences of its users.

For this reason Horse Museum Foundation does not use profiling cookies but only uses technical cookies. The technical cookies used by Horse Museum Foundation can be classified as:

  • functional.


Functional cookies

They allow you to access all the features offered by the site.
They are divided in turn into session cookies and persistent cookies.


Session cookies

They are created when the site is accessed and are used to simplify the use of the site.

They do not contain any sensitive data and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed.



They keep track of the actions performed by those who have visited the site such as having closed a popup window and allow for example to avoid that the same window is shown again.

In the case of Horse Museum Foundation, persistent cookies are used exclusively to memorize the closing of a popup window and are in any case deleted automatically when the browser is closed.
