To facilitate the use of our website, we are using “cookies”. The data collected through cookies are used to make the browsing experience more enjoyable and more efficient in the future.

What is cookie?

Cookies are small bites of information sent from the Site to the user’s terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the site at the next visit of the same user. A cookie can’t retrieve any other data from the user’s hard drive, nor transmit computer viruses or acquire email addresses. Each cookie is unique to the user’s web browser. Some of the functions of the cookie can be delegated to other technologies. In this document the term “cookie” refers to both cookie, properly called, and all similar technologies.

Type of cookies

Cookies can be of first or third-party, where “first party cookies” refer to cookies that report the website as domain, and “third-party cookies” means cookies relating to external domains.

Third-party cookies are necessarily installed by an external subject, always called “third-party”, that is not managed by the site. These subjects may possibly install first party cookies by saving its cookies on the site domain.

Another type of cookies is so-called “Flash Cookies” (Local Shared Objects), used in Adobe Flash Player to deliver some content, such as videos or animations, to remember the user’s settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the device but are managed through a different interface than the one provided by the browser.

Cookies’ nature

Regarding the nature of cookies, there are several types:

Technical Cookies

Technical Cookies are used with the unique purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary for the service provider of an information society explicitly requested by the subscriber or by the user to provide this service “(art. 122, paragraph 1of the Code).

They are not used for other purposes and are usually installed by the owner or by the website operator. They can be divided into:

  • navigation cookies, that ensure the normal web surfing and the use of the website (for example, allowing to make a purchase or to authenticate for access to private areas); they are necessary to the correct operation of the site;
  • analytic cookies, assimilated to technical cookies when are used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, about the number of users and about the way they visit the site, in order to improve the performance;
  • functionality cookies, that allow the web surfing according to selected parameters (such as language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service. For the installation of these cookies the prior agreement of the users is not required (for more information read the paragraph “Cookies Management”.

Profiling Cookies

Profiling Cookies are designed to create profiles for the user and they are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during the web surfing.

For the use of Profiling Cookies, it is required the user’s agreement. According to the provision (more information in the below paragraph “Cookie management”), the user can authorize or refuse the agreement for the cookies installation following the options indicated in the paragraph “Cookies Management”. In the case of third-party cookies, the site does not have direct control of each cookie and cannot control them (it cannot directly install them or delete them). Anyway, the user can manage these cookies through the browser settings (see the instructions below) or the sites indicated in the paragraph “Cookies Management”.

The user therefore is invited to check the specifications on the website of the third-party site indicated in the table below.
