Cookies Policy



    1. What are cookies?

    As explained by the Italian Data Protection Authority in the FAQ of December 2012, cookies are "small text files" – made up of letters and numbers – “which the websites visited by users send to a terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored in order to be retransmitted to those websites the next time they are visited by the same user”. Cookies are intended to facilitate analysis of web traffic or signal when a specific site or a part of it is visited, differentiate visitors in order to provide customised content, and help administrators improve the website and browsing experience of users. Cookies do not allow us access to any other information stored on your device, even though this 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 website, and all the necessary information about how to manage your own preferences in this regard.


    1. 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. When you close this banner by clicking on the close button or clicking outside the banner itself and continuing your navigation, you agree to the use of cookies according to the methods described in this Cookie Policy.

    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. However, the user always has the possibility to revoke, wholly or partially, the consent already expressed.

    If you experience technical problems related to consent, contact us through the appropriate channels provided by this website to enable us to provide assistance.


    1. Duration of cookies

    Cookies can be:

    • session cookies which are stored permanently on the user's computer and are deleted when the browser is closed, are strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers necessary to allow the safe and efficient browsing of the website avoiding the use of other IT techniques which are potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of users' browsing;
    • "persistent" cookies remain stored on your hard drive until they expire or until the users/visitors erase them. Through persistent cookies, visitors who access the website (or any other users who use the same computer) are automatically recognised at each visit. Visitors can set the computer's browser to accept/reject all cookies or display a warning whenever a cookie is offered, in order to evaluate whether to accept it or not. In any case, the user can change the default configuration and disable cookies (i.e. block them permanently) by setting the highest protection level.


    1. Type of cookies

    Cookies can be:

    • first-party, or cookies which relate to this website as a domain;
    • third-party, or cookies which relate to external domains.

    Third-party cookies are necessarily installed by an external subject, always referred to as a "third party", not run by the website.  Another type of cookie are the so-called "Flash cookies" (Local Shared Objects), used within Adobe Flash Player to deliver some content, such as video clips or animations, in order to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the device, but are managed through an interface other than the one provided by the browser being used


    1. Type of cookies

    Regarding the nature of cookies, there are different types:


    - Technical cookies: those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the sending of communications over an electronic network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service" (see article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code).

    They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website's administrator or operator. They can be divided into:

    • browsing or session cookies, which guarantee normal browsing and use of the website (enabling, for example, making a purchase or authenticating oneself for access to restricted areas); they are in fact necessary for proper operation of the website;
    • analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies where used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, about the number of users and how they visit the website in order to improve the performance of the website;
    • functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service offered to the user. The prior consent of users is not required for installation of these cookies (more information is provided in the Managing Cookies section below).


    - Profiling cookies: designed to create profiles relative to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the internet. Consent from the Data Subject is required to use profiling cookies.  In the case of third-party cookies, the website has no direct control of individual cookies and cannot control them (cannot install them directly or delete them). You can still manage these cookies through your browser settings (follow the instructions below), or the websites listed in the "Managing Cookies" section.


    1. Cookies present on this website

    This website uses cookies. We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. We also share information on how you use our website with our partners which deal with analysis of web data, advertising and social media: they may combine this with other information you have provided them or which they have gathered from your use of their services.

    Some cookies which appear on our pages are placed by third-party services. This website has no control over cookies entirely managed by third parties and has no access to information collected through these cookies. Information on the use of third-party cookies and on their purposes, as well as on the methods for disabling them, is provided directly by third parties on their websites.

    Generally the tracking of users does not involve their identification, unless the user is already registered for the service and is already logged in, in which case it is understood that the user has already expressed their consent directly to the third party at the time of registering with the relevant service (e.g. Facebook).

    Furthermore, we inform you that the tracking pixel (code) provided by Facebook Ireland Ltd is active on the website: it is a code deriving from a machine learning (automatic learning algorithm) aimed at creating a personalised audience for specific marketing campaigns, by tracking users' paths on the website.

    Finally, you are informed that the website may also have so-called "social buttons", or those special "buttons" on the website which depict the icons of social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) and allow users who are browsing to interact with a "click" directly on the social platforms. The social networking buttons used by the website are links which refer to the accounts of the Data Controller on the social networks depicted. Therefore, use of these buttons does not install third-party cookies on the website.


    1. Disabling cookies

    The user can refuse the use of cookies and can revoke consent already provided at any time. Since cookies are connected to the browser used, they can be disabled directly from the browser, thus refusing/revoking consent to the use of cookies.
