What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that is sent to the browser in use and saved on your device when you visit a website like yoox.com (‘the Website’). Cookies allow the Website to function efficiently and improve its services, in addition to providing information to the Website's owner for statistical or advertising purposes, primarily to personalise your browsing experience by remembering your preferences (for example, remembering the language and currency you set, in order to recognise you at the next visit, etc.).
Which cookies do we use and for what purposes?
Our website uses various types of first-party cookies (provided and managed by YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP), and third-party cookies (provided and managed by third parties based on their own individual privacy policies and not under the control of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP), each of which has a specific function. The table below explains what they are for.
TYPE OF COOKIE
From first access, these cookies allow the Website to function correctly and allow you to view content on your device by recognising the language and market of the country from which you’ve chosen to connect. If you are a registered user, they will allow you to be recognised and to access the services offered from the dedicated areas. Navigation cookies are technical cookies and are needed for the functioning of the Website.
These cookies allow, based on your express request, for you to be recognised when you subsequently access the Website, so that you do not have to enter your information each time (for example: “Remember me next time”). If you have added items into your Shopping Bag and closed the session without completing the purchase and without removing those items, these cookies allow you to continue the shopping experience the next time you access the website (within a limited period), finding the same articles that were selected. Functional cookies are not essential to the functioning of the website, but rather improve browsing quality and experience.
TThese first-party cookies are the property of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP (Website Administrator) and are used to gather data in anonymous and aggregated form. These cookies are used to prepare statistical analyses on the browsing methods of our Website’s users. YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP uses the results of these analyses anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes.
Our own and third-party marketing and profiling cookies

With third-party cookies we do not have control of the information provided by the cookie and we do not have access to this data.
