What are cookies

As is common practice with almost all professional websites this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience. This page describes what information they gather, how I use it and why I sometimes need to store these cookies. I will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored... however this may downgrade or 'break' certain elements of the sites functionality, like online shopping.

Through cookies I can not access other information stored on your device, even if it is here that cookies are downloaded. Cookies can not upload codes of any kind, carry viruses or malware and are not harmful to the user's terminal.

For more general information on cookies see the Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies.

User Consent

When you connect for the first time to any page of "The Workshop of Febo the Gnome", you will see a banner at the bottom of the screen, informing you of the use of cookies with a link to this "Cookie Policy". By closing this banner using the appropriate button, clicking outside it or simply scrolling the page and continuing to browse, you consent to my use of cookies, according to the methods described in this Cookie Policy.

The site remembers the choice made by you, so the banner will not be repeated in subsequent connections from the same device. However, you always has the possibility of revoking all or part of the consent already expressed.

If you encounter technical problems related to the provision of consent, please contact me at this email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The cookies I use

The use of cookies by the owner of this site, is part of its Privacy Policy.

To allow the use of the site and the provision of services, I use persistent cookies (i.e. cookies that remain in memory until they are manually deleted by the user or for which a long-term scheduled removal is planned) and session cookies, which are not stored permanently on the user's computer and disappear when the browser is closed.

I use cookies of different types - with specific functions - that we can classify as follows:


Techincal and session cookies

The user's consent is not required to release this type of cookie. They are essential for the proper functioning of the site and allow the user to browse and view the contents. If they were deactivated, the site would break.

Generally, cookies of this type are necessary, for example, to keep a browsing session open or to allow the user to access any reserved areas. Or they can temporarily remember the texts inserted during the compilation of a module, when you return to a previous page during the same session.

Technical and functional cookies

The user's consent is not required to release this type of cookie. They allow the user to make the most of the peculiarities of the site and to enjoy a more comfortable navigation. The site works in an ideal way if these cookies are enabled; you can still decide not to allow their activation on your device.

In general, for example, cookies of this type remember in which language the user prefers to view the contents or remember (for a limited period) the items in the shopping cart, in case the session is closed before completing the purchase.

Technical and consent cookies

The user's consent is not required to release this type of cookie. This cookie keeps track of the consent given by the user to the use of cookies on this site, so as not to re-propose - in subsequent visits - the banner on cookies and the request to give consent.


Browsing on this site you will receive both cookies from this site, and cookies from third-party sites, which may set cookies on your device on my behalf in order to provide their services.

Third-party cookies allow me to get more complete surveys of users' browsing habits.

I use these cookies, for example, to collect information to personalize content, as well as to process statistics on the use of my site and to assess your interest in our specific content or services. More detailed information on these cookies is available in the following paragraphs in this document and on the respective websites.

Since this site is an e-commerce site, I have to rely on third-party services to guarantee my clients security and reliability in transactions. Virtuemart is the platform that I rely on for the management of the store. This application uses cookies to manage, orders, purchase phases and preferences of my customers. To find out more, I invite you to read its official Privacy Policy.
For the management of payments, however, I instead rely on the following services, which use cookies:
Paypal (Privacy Policy)
Stripe (Privacy Policy)

Statistical cookies (from third parties)

The user's consent is required to release this type of cookie. They are used to gather information on how users browse on my site. This information is analyzed in aggregate form for statistical purposes only.

They are not necessary, but they are a great help to allow me to improve the contents and services based on the indications I get from the analysis of the statistics.

"The Workshop of Febo the Gnome" uses Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway - Mountain View - CA94043 USA, which uses cookies to collect and analyze in aggregate information about the user browsing.

Social Plugins and widgets (third-party)

"The Workshop of Febo the Gnome" also uses social media and / or plug-in buttons on this site that allow the user to connect with your social network in various ways through the services offered by Addthis (see their Privacy Policy and the possibility of Opt-Out).

My web pages therefore include plug-ins of the most popular social networks (a.e. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin) managed by the third parties involved.

Such plug-ins could for example correspond to Facebook's "Like" buttons or Twitter's "Retweet" buttons. If you access one of my web pages, equipped with a similar plug-in, the internet browser connects directly to the third-party servers and the plug-in is displayed on the screen thanks to the connection with the browser. The plug-in may communicate to third-party servers which pages the user has visited. Affected social networks:
Facebook & Facebook Messenger (Privacy Policy - Opt-Out)
Google+ & Gmail (Privacy Policy - Opt-Out)
