Personal data treated

  • Navigation data

To facilitate the use of our website, we are using “cookies”.

What are cookies?

As clarified by the Privacy Policy in the FAQ of December 2012, cookies are “small text files” – formed by letters and numbers “that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits”. Cookies have the function of streamlining the analysis of web traffic or to indicate when a specific site or part of it is visited, to distinguish between visitors in order to provide personalized content, and help administrators to improve the site and the user experience. Through cookies, we cannot access other information stored on your device, even if that is where the cookies are downloaded. Cookies cannot load codes of any kind, carry viruses or malware and are not harmful to the user’s terminal. Below you can find all the information about the cookies installed through this site, and the necessary guidance on how to manage your preferences in this regard.

It is appropriate to specify that the purposes usually fulfilled by a cookie can also be achieved through other similar technologies, including the use of certain features that allow the identification of devices in order to analyse visits to a website. This policy, in fact, applies to any technology that stores or accesses information on the user’s device. For example, HTML5 local storage, Local Shared Objects (also called flash cookies), and fingerprinting techniques might fall into this category. In particular, device fingerprinting is a technique that involves combining a set of information in order to uniquely identify a particular device.

User consent to the use of cookies

Connecting for the first time to any page on the website, the user will see an information banner on the use of cookies. The website memorises the choice made by the user, so the brief notice will not open when the website is later accessed from the same device. In any case, the user always has the possibility of revoking all or part of the express consent through the link in the footer “Update cookie preferences.”

Duration of cookies

Cookies can be:

  • Session cookies: which are removed when the user closes the browser and which therefore have a duration limited to his visit;
  • Persistent cookies: which remain in the device used to browse the internet for a specified time. These cookies have typical expiration dates and their duration varies depending on the cookie used (see table)

Origin of cookies:

  • first-party: cookies that report the site as a domain
  • third-party: cookies that are related to external domains

Nature and purpose of cookies

There are different types of cookies:

  • Technical cookies: are considered strictly necessary, because the storage of information is essential to provide the service requested by the user. Therefore, technical cookies cannot be disabled and the prior consent of users is not required for their installation (pursuant to Article 122 of the Privacy Code).
  • analysis cookies: they can be first or third party, they are installed to collect information on the use of the website. In particular, they are useful to statistically analyse accesses or visits to the site itself and to allow the owner to improve its structure, navigation logic and contents. The information collected (including the masked IP) are used to perform statistical analysis in order to improve the use of the site and possibly to make the content more interesting and relevant to the tastes of the User.

Analysis cookies are not necessary for the operation of the website, however, since the IP address is not mentioned, the installation of such cookies does not require the User’s consent.

  • profiling cookies: which can be first or third party, they are used to track the User’s navigation, analyse his behaviour for marketing purposes and create profiles regarding his tastes, habits chosen etc. In this way it is possible, for example, to transmit targeted advertising messages in relation to the interests of the User and in line with the preferences expressed by the latter while browsing online. Social cookies also fall into these cookies.

In the case of third-party cookies, the Website has no direct control over individual cookies and cannot control them (it cannot directly install or delete them). However, you can manage these cookies through your browser settings (follow the instructions below).

Below you will find for each type of cookie, the name, whether first or third party, the purpose of use, the link to the third party and the duration:

By default, almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies, but users can change the default configuration through the settings of the browser used, which allow them to delete/remove all or some cookies or block the sending of cookies or limit it to certain sites.

Disabling/blocking cookies or deleting them could compromise the optimal use of some areas of the site or prevent some features, as well as affect the operation of third-party services.
