Cookie policy

This document is an integral and substantial part of the Privacy Policy issued in accordance with the European Union legislation on the protection of personal data (EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 – for short GDPR – and Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 and subsequent amendments – for short Privacy Code). We therefore invite you to read this document.

What are cookies – so called active identifiers – and why do we use them?

Cookies are small files sent and stored on your computer when visiting a website. They are stored in your browser’s file directory. The next time you visit the website, the browser reads the cookie and submits the information to the website or entity that originally created the cookie. For further information about these technologies and how they work, visit, for example, the There are various types of cookies, including:

  • Technical cookies
    “Technical” cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the service provider of the company of the information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). They are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website and are divided into:
    navigation or session cookies necessary for the normal browsing and use of the website (such as to make a purchase or to allow authentication to access restricted areas)
    analytical cookies, comparable to the technical ones, used by the website operator to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and the method of visiting the website.
  • Functional cookies
    Functional cookies 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 browsing experience on the website.
  • Profiling cookies
    Profiling cookies, used to link to specific, identified or identifiable subjects, specific actions or recurring behavioural patterns in the use of the features offered in order to group the different profiles within homogeneous clusters of different sizes. This is to enable the Data Controller, among other aspects, to also modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly customised way beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as to send targeted advertising messages, i.e. in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing on the net.
  • Persistent or session cookies
    Session cookies contain information used in the current browser session and are automatically deleted when the same browser is closed. Nothing is stored on the device beyond the time of browsing on the website.
    Persistent cookies, instead, are used to maintain over time the information, collected during the first visit to the website, whose duration is set by the website and which can vary from a few minutes to several years.
  • First-party cookies
    These are the cookies managed by the owner of the website. For these cookies, the obligation of the information lies with the owner of the website. Furthermore, it is also the responsibility of the latter to indicate the methods for the possible blocking of the cookie.
  • Third-party cookies
    These are cookies managed by a third party other than the owner of the visited website. This is because on each website there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers different from that of the visited website. Regarding these cookies, the obligation of the information and the indication of the methods for the possible blocking of the cookie lie with the third party, while the owner of the website must insert on the website the link to the website of the third party if these elements are available.

Tracking tools – so called passive identifiers

The use of passive identifiers, a technology different from cookies, makes it possible to obtain processing similar to that one carried out through cookies. This technique allows identification of the device used by the user through the collection of all or some of the information relating to the specific configuration of the device itself being used by the data subject. Furthermore, this technique can be used to achieve the same profiling purposes also aimed at displaying personalised behavioural advertising, analysing and monitoring the behaviour of website visitors, i.e. to conform the type and methods of services offered to the behaviour of the user subject to previous observation.

Cookies and tracking tools for purposes other than the technical ones may be used after obtaining the user’s in any case, informed consent.

With regard to the tracking tools, the Website does not use such technology.

Time and place of storage of cookies and other tracking tools

Cookies persist in the user’s device for a variety of times, depending on the type and use, whereas the data contained therein are sent to the servers of the various third parties (third-party cookies) as well as being present in the server of the provider of the Owner’s Website. In this detailed section of cookies, it is possible to analyse the storage time and the destination of the data transmitted, through the privacy policy of each cookie.

Browser settings

Most browsers automatically accept cookies and allow control of most cookies through the browser settings, even if the user is not required to accept them. Cookies can also be disabled by changing the settings of your browser, performing the procedure to configure these settings.
Hereafter a list of instructions to manage cookies in relation to the most popular browsers:

Further information on cookies and other tracking tools

For further information on cookies, including how to view those that have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit the website.
Finally, with regard to tracking tools, it is possible to set your web browser to require a Website to disable a user’s tracking. When the anti-tracking setting is enabled in a browser, the latter sends a special signal to the websites, the analytics companies, the advertising networks, the plug-in providers and to other web services encountered while you browse to stop tracking the user’s session.
