At Sapienza Consulting, we use cookies to improve your website experience. Cookies are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer to improve your browsing experience. This page describes what information the cookies on our site gather, how we use this information and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share information on how you can prevent these cookies from being stored. However, this may downgrade or ‘break’ certain elements of the sites functionality.

Please be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a variety of reasons detailed below. We use three types of cookies: functional cookies, analysing cookies and tracking cookies.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies are cookies that are used to recognise you and remember your preferences or settings. We set these cookies so  you can interact with our website without previous preferences being changed. With functional cookies, we can provide you with a more personalised experience. We do not use a third party for this type of cookies.

Analysing cookies

With analysing cookies, we track how many visitors our website has. These cookies may track things such as how much time you spend on the website and the pages that you visit, so we can continue to produce engaging content. We keep these cookies for a period of 26 months. Google Analytics is the trusted third party we use for this. Google Analytics is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions available for helping us to understand how you use the site and how we can improve your experience.

We have configured Google Analytics in a privacy-friendly manner. With the help of basic Google-tooling your IP-address is anonymized before being send to Google. We have also concluded a data processor agreement with Google. We have not given Google permission to share your data with third parties or to use it for other Google services. The processing of personal data through Google Analytics is based on our legitimate interest to gather statistics on our website-visitors.

Tracking cookies

It’s important for us to understand statistics about how many of the visitors to our site actually engage, so this is the kind of data that these cookies will track. This is important as it means that we can accurately make business predictions that allow us to monitor our advertising.

The behavioral advertising cookies used by this site are designed to ensure that we provide you with the most relevant adverts where possible by anonymously tracking your interests and presenting adverts that correspond with these interests. We use Facebook and Google for these adverts.

We use tracking cookies only after you have given us consent.

More information

From time to time, we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent browsing experience on our website, whilst ensuring we understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.

Hopefully this has clarified things for you. In case you are not sure about the necessity of a cookie, it is usually safer to leave cookies enabled because they might interact with one of the features you use on our site.
