Cookies policy

This cookie policy specifically illustrates cookie types and the way they are used. It also explains how to reject or delete the website's cookies.

1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small pieces of text that a visited website sends to a user's computer (usually the browser), where they are stored before being sent back to the same website on the user's next visit. While visiting a website, the user's computer may also receive cookies sent by other websites or servers (so-called "third-party cookies") which may contain certain information (e.g. pictures, maps, sounds, specific links to other domain pages) on the website being visited. Cookies serve different purposes: IT authentication, session monitoring and storing information on specific configurations to optimise the visitor experience. Cookies may not be used to identify the visitor in person.

2. TYPES OF COOKIES

There are several cookie types. These are the main ones:

a. Technical Cookies

Technical cookies are used solely to "send communication on an electronic communication network or insofar as strictly required by the provider of an information company service expressly requested by the subscriber or user in order to provide that service" (cf. Art. 122, par. 1, of the Italian Data Protection Code). They are not used for other purposes and are usually installed directly by the website controller or manager. They may be:
Session Cookies
Session cookies guarantee normal surfing and use of a website (e.g. allowing a purchase or authentication to access reserved areas).

Analytical Cookies
Analytical cookies are assimilated with technical cookies when used directly by the website manager to gather information, in aggregate form, on user numbers and how people visit the website.

Functional Cookies
Functional cookies allow users to surf a website on the basis of selected criteria (e.g. language, products chosen for purchase) to improve the service provided.

b. Profiling Cookies

Profiling cookies are used to show visitors advertising messages in keeping with preferences shown when surfing the Internet. European and Italian legislation states that a user must be properly informed of the use of profiling cookies and provide valid consent.
