Cookie policy
WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A cookie cannot recall any other data from the user’s fixed disk or transmit IT viruses or acquire e-mail addresses. Each cookie is unique for the web browser of the user. Through the cookies information related to your preferences is registered, such as the pages visited or the download of files from our site or other similar actions performed during the surfing.
FIRST PARTY OR THIRD PARTY  Cookies may be first party or third party types, wherein “first party” refers to cookies installed by the Owner of the site itself, and “third party” cookies refer to cookies installed by Third Parties with respect to the Owner of the site.
NATURE OF THE COOKIES There are different types of cookies: Technical Cookies: Technical cookies are those used only to “carry out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or in the measure that is strictly necessary to a service provider of the information company, which the subscriber explicitly asked to issue such service” (see Art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for further scopes and are installed directly by the Owner or Manager of the web site. They may be subdivided into: – surfing or session cookies, that guarantee the normal surfing and use of the web site (allowing for e.g. to make a purchase or authenticate oneself to access reserved areas); these are in fact necessary for the correct functioning of the site; – analytical cookies, assimilated to the technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to gather information in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how these visit the site itself, in order to boost the site’s performance;
– functional cookies, that allow the user to surf according to a series of selected standards (e.g. the language, the products selected for the purchase) in order to improve the services given to the same. To install such cookies, the prior consent of the users is needed (more information in the paragraph, “Cookie Management,” below).
Profiling Cookies Profiling cookies are used to create profiles regarding the user and are used with the aim of sending advertising messages, in line with the preferences shown by the user while surfing on the network. The use of profiling cookies requires the consent of the data subject. According to provision no. 229 of 8 May 2014, the user should be able to authorize or deny his/her consent to the installation of profiling cookies, if any.
