16. Your California Privacy Rights

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal data (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Note that, as stated above and in our Cookie Policy, we may use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a concept promoted by certain regulatory authorities and industry groups for development and implementation of a mechanism that would allow internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites. Currently, various browsers (including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari) offer a DNT option that allows a user to set a preference in the browser to not have his/her activities on the internet tracked. You can usually access your browser's DNT option in your browser's preferences. When a user’s browser is set to DNT, some cookies and other tracking technologies may become inactive, depending on how the website visited responds to DNT browser settings. At this time, our Website responds to most DNT signals, but depending on your browser, it is possible that we may not respond to all such signals at all times.

This Policy is effective as of June 5, 2019.

 

COOKIE POLICY

 

The website www.geox.com (the "Website") uses "Cookies": that is, text files which are sent from a web server (i.e. the computer which “hosts” the website visited) to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google, etc.) and which are stored on the user’s computing device, whether fixed or mobile (e.g., your computer or smart phone).

The cookies enable the Website to identify the user’s device, through the information stored therein, whenever said user accesses to the Website through that device.

Through the use of cookies, we can make it easier for the user to navigate the Website. We can also analyse the user’s preferences and tastes through browsing verification, which consequently allows us to promote the products and services that are more consistent with the user's interests and expectations.

Cookies can be “session cookies” (when they are stored solely for the length of the browsing session on the website and deleted when the browser is closed), or “persistent cookies” (when they are stored for a longer period, until they expire or are cancelled/deactivated by the user).

Although information collected through cookies, when used in conjunction with additional information, may sometimes allow identification of a particular individual, Geox cannot, through the use of cookies alone, collect the type of personally identifiable information that directly identifies you (e.g. first name, last name).

 

1. What types of cookies are used by the Website

Technical Cookies

These are cookies used to facilitate navigation of the Website, and to provide the service offered or requested by the Website user. These cookies may be temporary, also known as “session cookies” (as described above), which will be deleted from your device after you log off of the Website, or not temporary (so called “persistent cookies”) which are not deleted from your device after you exit the Website.

Through the use of these cookies, we are able to facilitate the user’s browsing within the Website, for example by recalling the data the user has provided when completing forms on the Website (so-called “user-input cookies”, which are persistent cookies); to recognise the user after he/she has logged out and then comes back to the Website (so-called “authentication cookies” which are also persistent cookies); to customize the interface of the Website based on the preferences indicated by the user, and to collect aggregate data about Website usage generally, such as pertaining to the number of Website visitors and the most visited pages (so-called “analytics cookies”, which are used with mechanisms to partially obscure IP addresses, and which are also persistent cookies).

We will not seek your prior consent before using technical cookies.

Profiling Cookies

These cookies are designed to create user profiles, for example, in order to send advertising to the user, consistent with the user’s preferences. Except as provided in paragraph 3 below, such cookies are sent from the Website to the user’s computer while browsing and are stored after the end of the browsing session, until they expire or the user cancels/deactivates them (i.e., they are persistent cookies).

If you browse the Website after you see our cookies banner or if you close the cookies banner, or click on any portion of the Website, then you consent to our use of these types of cookies.

If you choose to delete the cookies or deactivate them through your browser settings, when you return, the Website will request your consent again.

No other user profiling tools are used on this Website (e.g. spyware), however, if the user registers with the Website and provides his/her specific consent to the monitoring of his/her browsing activities during such registration (or at any time thereafter), data relating to the user’s navigation on the Website may be associated with his/her personal data.
