We use both our own cookies and third party cookies to improve our services. If you decide to continue the navigation we consider that you accept their use.
Cookies are text files used on the Internet for automatic authentication, navigation tracking or to store specific information provided by users accessing the server, like favorite websites, e-commerce, or shopping carts.
More in detail, they are short text strings sent by a server to a web client (usually a browser) and from the client back to the server (unchanged) every time the client is at the same section of the same web domain. The term "cookie" - literally "biscuit" - comes from the term magic cookie (magic biscuit), a well known concept in the UNIX environment, which has inspired both the idea and the name of the HTTP cookies.
By default, in most web browsers cookies are automatically accepted.
The hotelzima.com websites uses or may use, even in combination with each other, the following types of cookies, divided according to the classification proposed in Opinion 04/2012 on Cookie Consent Exemption issued by the “ARTICLE 29 DATA PROTECTION WORKING PARTY” (available at this link).
- "Session" cookies are stored on a user’s computer for purely technical and functional issues, to enable the transmission of session identifiers required by a safe and efficient site browsing; they are automatically erased at the end of the "session" (hence the name) by closing the browser. These types of cookies avoid the use of other technologies that could compromise the privacy of the users.
- "Persistent" cookies remain stored on your computer hard disk until they expire or until the users / visitors erase them. Thanks to persistent cookies visitors who access the site (or any other users who use the same computer) are automatically recognized at every visit. Persistent cookies allow many functions of interest for surfers (such as the use of the browsing language or shopping cart contents in e-commerce applications. However, persistent cookies can also be used for promotional purposes or, on the other hand for malicious purposes. Visitors can set their computer's browser so that it accepts / rejects all cookies or to signal an alert whenever a cookie is offered, in order to assess whether to accept it. The user is able, however, to modify the default configuration and to disable cookies (i.e., to block them definitively), by selecting a higher security level.
These two types of cookies (the session and persistent ones) can themselves be:
- "owned" when they are directly managed by the owner and /or website administrator
- "third party" when cookies are generated and managed by a third service, which is hosted by the website visited.

Adwords remarketing tool
The website uses Google Adwords remarketing tool. This tool allows us to publish ads based on users of our Website.
For this reason, some sites call a code called "Remarketing code". This code allows the reading and the configuration of the browser cookies to select what kind of ads you will see, depending on the data of the Web site you visit, such as the selected navigation path, the pages that you have actually visited or the actions performed inside those pages.
Remarketing lists thus created are stored in a database server of Google in which you retain all cookie IDs associated with each list or interest category. Information obtained allows the identification of only the browser, since from this information Google is not able to identify the user.
More information about the remarketing tool is available at this link:
