What are cookies?

Cookies are not biscuits in English! They are small files with information that the sites you surf on record on your device (computer, tablet, smartphone). They are used to improve your browsing: for example they save your preferences and recognize you when you return to shop for the second time.

To find out more, go to the page where everything is explained to the fullest, thanks to Iubenda, where everything is explained deeply and following the 2018 guidelines on GDPR.

In general, this site uses:

  • technical cookies, for which no specific authorization is required (Article 122 of the Privacy Code and the Provision of the Guarantor of 8 May 2014)
  • third-party cookies, ie external services, with separate privacy information and specific conditions of use.
  • newsletter and data collection from contact form

Cookies

If you have not disabled cookies on your internet browser and you continue to browse this site, you consent implicitly to the use of cookies used and acceptance of the conditions of use and information privacy of third-party services.

Specifically, this site may include:

  • Jetpack and Akismet cookies, WordPress plugin
  • Google Analytics cookies, a tool to have the site usage statistics anonymously. It means that the data is aggregated and is not related to your identity. This helps me to understand how visitors generally use this site and to improve it and make it more useful and interesting
  • cookies related to the services of Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin, Youtube, Google Plus

If you want to disable cookies, you can directly change the settings of your browser. To block Google Analytics (on this and on all other sites that use it) you must download a special tool that disables the sending of data.

Newsletter

Once a month I write a newsletter for:

  • send mail where I tell a little about the life of freelance women
  • collect the posts written during the month
  • send offers / report courses
  • warn of the arrival of interesting events and growth opportunities for freelancers

To register you can use the popup mask that appears after a while when you are on the site, but also use the newsletter form of the Contact page.

The newsletter is created and managed with MailChimp, and your email address is stored on MailChimp servers. Periodically, in the backups I personally make of my list. Here is where you can read the privacy policy of MailChimp and here a clarification article in which they explain what this inclusion of the GDPR will entail.

MailChimp, like any newsletter management platform, gives information about who opens the newsletters and clicks on the links and I use the information to understand the progress of my newsletter, if there are more interesting themes or findings of my business proposals.

For your information:

If you don’t like that I know which kind of click on the links you did in a newsletter and do not want to be tracked, copy the links, even better if the text-only version, to open them directly in the browser.
If you do not like that who sends you the newsletter know that you have opened it, read the newsletter without downloading the images;
I am the sole holder of data processing and you can find all my contact details at the bottom of every page. In no way and for no reason I give your email address to anyone else, unless you give me permission to do so. You can also decide not to receive the newsletter at any time, through the link at the bottom of each message in your email or by using unroll.me to unsubscribe.

Thank you for reading this statement and I hope that your browsing on this site is nice and tasty!
