Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy is an integral part of the privacy information which can be consulted on our website  

Duty to inform

The user can express his consent to the use of cookies by accepting them in a free, specific, informed and unequivocal way, by clicking on one of the internal links of the site pages, or by clicking on the "x" or closure of the banner of the brief information visible at every first access to the site itself (as required by the provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data n. 229 of 8 May 2014 and by the "Cookie guidelines and other tracking tools - 10 June 2021”) or by performing a scrolling action, when the site uses only technical cookies or cookies with similar functions, without prejudice to the obligation of information on the part of the Data Controller.

Definition and type of cookies

Cookies consist of portions of code (computer files or partial data) sent by a server to the user's internet browser, automatically memorized by said browser on the user's computer and automatically sent back to the server at each occurrence or subsequent access to the site. A cookie usually contains the name of the website from which the cookie comes, the life span of the cookie (ie how long it will remain on the user's device) and a value, which is usually a unique number generated randomly. On each subsequent visit, the cookies are sent back to the website that originated them (first-party cookies) or to another site that recognizes them (third-party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize the user's device and have various purposes such as, for example, allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your favorite sites and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more relevant to a user and his interests.

The sites use different types of cookies, each of which has a specific function. The site uses cookies to make navigation easier and to better adapt both the pages loaded and its products to the interests and needs of users. Cookies can also be used to speed up future experiences and user activities on the site. Furthermore, cookies are used to compile anonymous aggregate statistics that allow us to understand how users use the site and to improve the structure and content of the sites themselves.

Below is an explanatory list.

Technical cookies

"Technical" cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the site and allow users to browse the site and take advantage of its features (for example, they allow memorization of previous actions or allow the user's session to be saved and/or to carry out other activities strictly necessary for the functioning of the site).

This category also includes "analytical" cookies which help to understand how users interact with the site by providing information relating to the last page visited, the number of sections and pages visited, the time spent on the site and each event that has emerged in the course of navigation, such as an error message, and help to understand every difficulty that the user encounters in using the site. This information may be associated with user details such as IP address, domain or browser; however, they are analyzed together with information from other users so as not to identify one user from another. These cookies are collected and aggregated anonymously and allow the site manager to improve the usability of the site.

Finally, "functionality" cookies allow the site to remember the user's choices (for example the user name) to provide the latter with more personalized and optimized navigation. Functional cookies are not essential for the functioning of the Sites, but they improve their quality and browsing experience. If you do not accept these cookies, the site's performance and functionality may be reduced and access to the site's contents may be limited.

Profiling cookies

"Targeting" or "profiling" cookies are used to present content more suited to the user and his interests. They can be used to display targeted advertisements, to publish personalized advertisements based on the user's interests or to limit the number of times the user views an advertisement. They also help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on the site; the site manager could use these cookies to remember the sites that the user has visited and share this information with third parties, including agencies and advertisers who could use their cookies to collect information on the activities performed by users on the site.

"Sharing" (or social network) cookies are necessary to allow the user to interact with the Sites through their social account and are used, for example, to express appreciation and to share it with the related social contacts.

The site uses or may use, also in combination with each other, cookies:
– of "session" which are stored on the user's computer for mere technical-functional needs, for the transmission of session identifiers necessary to allow safe and efficient exploration of the site; they are canceled at the end of the "session" (hence the name) by closing the browser;
– “persistent” which remain stored on the computer hard drive until they expire or are canceled by users. Through persistent cookies, users who access the sites (or any other users who use the same computer) are automatically recognized at each visit

-"third-party". When a user uses the site, some cookies that are not controlled by the site manager may be stored. This happens, for example, if the user visits a page that contains content from a third-party website. Consequently, the user will receive cookies from these third-party services. On third-party cookies, the site manager does not have control over the information provided by the cookie and does not have access to such data. This information is fully controlled by third-party companies as described in their respective privacy policies.

In the " view cookies " window you can find the details of the cookies and select your preferences, with the exception of technical cookies.

For more detailed information relating to this site, see what is described in the specific information, accessible from the " Show cookies/Show cookies" section , operative in the banner on the homepage.

If the user decides to disable cookies, this could influence and/or limit his browsing experience within the site: for example, he may not be able to visit certain sections of the site or he may not receive personalized information when he visits the site. Technical cookies cannot be disabled.

Expression of consent for acceptance of cookies

Consent can be acquired:

  1. by selecting a specific box on the website
  2. through the choice of technical settings for information society services
  3. through any statement or behavior that clearly indicates that you accept the proposed treatment

Manifestation of consent through the appropriate box on the site

Consent can be validly acquired by selecting the appropriate flags on the website banner, which appear when the web page is opened, for the purpose of online tracking of information concerning the user, also deriving from the use of cookies and other tracking tools.

If the user chooses to keep the default settings, he can limit himself to closing the banner by selecting the appropriate command (an X usually positioned at the top right and inside the banner itself). Even this action, expressing the will not to consent to the use of cookies other than technical ones, will prevent the site from recurring the presentation of the banner on subsequent accesses by the user.

The banner must also contain the warning that its closure through the X placed at the top right implies the persistence of the default settings and therefore the absence of operation of cookies or other tracking tools other than technical ones

The settings must be modifiable by the user at any time, through the use of a specific function made operational on the first page of the site (such as, for example, the " Review your choices " button)

Therefore, in the event that the user maintains the default settings and therefore does not consent to the use of cookies or other tracking tools, as well as in the event that he has only consented to the use of some cookies or some tracking tools, this choice must be duly recorded and the provision of consent not requested again unless one of the following cases occurs: a) when one or more conditions of the treatment change significantly; b) when it is impossible for the manager to be aware of the fact that a cookie has already been previously stored on the device to be transmitted again; c) when at least 6 months have passed since the previous presentation of the banner.

Expression of consent by choosing technical settings for information society services.

The operating modes as well as the options to limit or block cookies can be adjusted by changing the settings of your internet browser. The majority of internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically, however the user can change these settings to block cookies or to be warned whenever cookies are sent to his device. There are different ways to manage cookies, for this purpose it is necessary to refer to the help screen of your browser to check how to adjust or change the settings of the same. In fact, the user is enabled to change the default configuration and disable cookies (ie block them definitively), setting the highest level of protection.

Below is the path to follow to manage cookies from the following browsers:

Internet Explorer:

If the user uses different devices to view and access the sites (for example, computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.), he must make sure that each browser on each device is adjusted to reflect his cookie preferences. To delete cookies from the internet browser of your smartphone/tablet, refer to the device's user manual.
