WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files sent from the site to the terminal of the interested party (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the site the next time the same user visits the site. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, transmit computer viruses or acquire email addresses. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. Some of the functions of cookies may be delegated to other technologies. In this document, the term ‘cookie’ is used to refer to both cookies proper and all similar technologies.
Through cookies it is possible to record information about your preferences, such as the pages you visit or the downloading of files from our website or other similar actions made by browsing our site.
FIRST OR THIRD-PARTY COOKIES
Cookies may be first or third-party cookies, where “first party” means cookies developed by the Owner of the site itself, while “third party” means cookies developed by third parties compared to the Owner of the site.
THE NATURE OF COOKIES
There are several types of cookies:
1) Technical Cookies
Technical cookies are those used solely to carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide that service.
They are not used for any further purpose and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be subdivided into:
– Navigation or session cookies, these guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate access to reserved areas); they are in fact necessary for the proper functioning of the website;
– Analytical Cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself, in order to improve the performance of the site;
– Functional cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the same. The installation of such cookies does not require the prior consent of users (more information in the section Managing cookies below).
2) Profiling Cookies
Profiling cookies are used to create user profiles and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web.
The use of profiling cookies requires the consent of the person concerned. According to the provision of the Authority No. 229 dell’8 maggio 2014 (no. 229 of 8 May 2014) the user must be able to authorise or refuse the installation of profiling cookies if they are present.
In the case of third party cookies, the site has no direct control over individual cookies and cannot control them (it cannot install them directly or delete them). You can still manage these cookies through your browser settings (follow the instructions below), or through the sites listed in the “Manage Cookies” section.
The User is therefore invited to check on the site of the third party indicated below.

DURATION OF COOKIES
Cookies have a duration dictated by the expiration date (or a specific action such as closing your browser) set at the time of installation. Cookies can be:
- Temporary or Session cookies: These are used to store temporary information, to link actions taken during a specific session, and are removed from the computer when the browser is closed;
- Persistent cookies: these are used to store information, such as your login name and password, so that you do not have to type them in again each time you visit a specific site. These remain stored on your computer even after you close the browser.
The so-called session cookies, once the connection to this website is terminated, are not kept. The computer systems used for this site use both temporary and persistent cookies.
You can deactivate cookies on websites by downloading specific software such as Ghostery for your browser and disabling the use of individual cookies. You can also activate the “In-Cognito browsing” mode. This is a function that allows you to navigate without leaving a trace in the browser of your navigation data. This function only serves to not keep navigation data in the browser.
Alternatively, you can disable/delete cookies by accessing your browser’s configuration pane.
