Cookie Policy

This website uses cookies, which are short strings of text sent from the website server to the visitors’ browsers and are automatically saved on their PCs for easy navigation and maintaining user status information when accessing reserved areas or language preference information.

Cookies created on a visitor’s computer do not contain any personal identification data and do not compromise your privacy or security.

What types of cookies are there?

    1. Technical cookies are used only to “carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of a company service, of information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service”.

They may be divided as follows:

    • session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website allowing, for example, authentication and access to restricted areas;
    • analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies where used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate, on the number of users and how they visit the website;
    • function cookies, which allow browsing according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language) in order to improve the service rendered.
    • The use of technical cookies, usually installed by the website owner or manager, does not require the consent of the interested party.
  1. Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown while surfing the net. Given the considerable invasiveness in the privacy of users, the European and Italian legislation requires that users be properly informed about their use and express their valid consent.

The use of profiling cookies requires the user’s consent.
he current legal framework distinguishes between the website manager cookies and “third party” cookies, according to the different operators who install cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the manager of the website that the user is visiting (which may be synthetically indicated as “publisher”) or a different website that installs cookies by means of the initial website (so-called “third-parties”).

In this respect, the publisher is, on the one hand, the data controller of the cookies installed directly, and on the other one, a technical intermediary between third parties and users. The publisher, however, is exempt from the obligation to provide information and obtain consent to their installation for cookies installed by “third parties”.
