What are Cookies?
Cookies are data created on a server which are stored in text files on your computer’s hard disk and allow the operation of this website, the use of a specific functionality explicitly requested by the user; that is, they allow us to enhance the operation of this website, such as for example cookies which make the browsing faster or show content which could be of interest to the user depending on their previous choices. Cookies can be permanent (persistent cookies) but can also have a limited duration (session cookies). This website uses both persistent and session cookies. Session cookies are not permanently stored on your computer and disappear when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies help customise browsing, depending on the device used by the user (computer, tablet, smartphone), as well as third-party cookies which are used to analyse site access (e.g. Google Analytics) and allow users to share the site content through social media networks (Facebook) or email (Add This). These cookies are stored permanently on your computer and have a variable duration.


Types of Cookies
The Italian legislation (Article 122 of Legislative Decree 196/03 “Code regarding the protection of personal data” hereinafter referred to as “Code”) introduced into our system the Community Directive 2009/136/EC which requires managers of websites which use cookies or other monitoring technologies to inform the user about the types of cookies used by the website.

The Provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data no. 229 of 8 May 2014, published in the Official Journal no. 126 of 3 June 2014, classed cookies into two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

TECHNICAL COOKIES, normally installed by the website controller or manager, have the purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of a service or an information society explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (see article 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code).
The installation of these cookies does not require users’ prior consent. Technical cookies are further divided into:

  • Navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for instance, purchases or login to protected areas). These cookies are not stored permanently on the device used by the user and are automatically deactivated when the browser is closed. Their use is linked to the transmission of identification data which are necessary to allow safe and efficient navigation on the pages. Session cookies do not in any way allow the acquisition of the personal identification data of the user.
  • Analytics cookies, used to collect information on the use of the website, in anonymous form and to obtain a statistical analysis of both the pages viewed and the users’ behaviour. This anonymous analysis provides information and suggestions to improve the quality of the website and to make the content which is most sought after and most interesting to users easily accessible. Analytics cookies can be sent both from the website and from third-party domains and do not in any way allow the acquisition of personal identification data. Analytics cookies, if installed by third parties (e.g. Google analytics), even if they collect data anonymously, are similar to profiling cookies, as indicated by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data.
  • Functionality cookies: they are similar to technical cookies to the extent that they are used directly by the manager of the website to gather aggregated information about the number of users and how they visited the website. These cookies allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language) in order to improve the service rendered to them.

PROFILING COOKIES are intended to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while browsing the internet. These cookies are particularly invasive in the private sphere of the user; for this reason European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of cookies in order to be able to express their consent. They are referenced by Section 122 of the Privacy Code which sets out that “the storage of information in the end device of a subscriber or a user or access to information already stored therein is only allowed on the condition that the subscriber or user has given their consent, having been informed by the simplified means provided for in Section 13, paragraph 3” (Section 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

In the same provision, the Guarantor has also categorised cookies according to the subject who acts as the data controller of the personal data collected by the cookie, distinguishing between “first-party” and “third-party” cookies.

These are cookies managed by the controller of the website. For these cookies, the requirements outlined in the report are the responsibility of the controller of the website. The controller is also responsible for indicating the potential methods for blocking said cookies.


These are cookies managed by a third party other than the controller of the website. For these cookies, it is up to the third party to provide proper information, while the controller of the website is obliged to report the link to the website of said third party where these elements are available on the website.

For both types of cookies (first-party or third-party) the required consent, which is necessary if the cookie is a profiling one, is carried out via a specific banner on the homepage of the website.

Types of cookies used on our website
The website uses technical cookies, which can be used without requesting the consent of the data subject, since they are strictly necessary for the provision of the service. Furthermore, third-party profiling cookies may be used, the use of which is subject to the direct consent of these third parties by accessing the relative information on the use of cookies. The profiling cookies can be used by the Data Controller or by the Controller of the cookie itself, to store the choices made by the data subject, to provide customised or optimised functions or to store their habits and preferences shown during navigation. For example, profiling cookies can be used to offer online services to data subjects, to send them advertisements which take into account their interests or to prevent them from being offered services which they have refused in the past.

In the next section of this Cookie Policy there is a detailed list of all the cookies used by this website.

The first group lists the so-called technical cookies, the use of which, as mentioned above, does not require the user’s consent. The second group lists the profiling cookies.

For both groups, the following information is reported for each cookie type:

  • cookie name
  • function performed by the cookie
  • indication if the cookie is first-party or third-party
  • if the cookie is third party, information on the link through which you can reach the third-party website displaying the third-party information about the personal data processing collected through the cookie and an explanation on how to block the cookie
  • cookie expiration.
