Cookie Policy

Definition of "cookies"

Cookies are data files that the Website transfers to the User's computer, where they are stored and then transmitted back to the Website the next time the User visits, in order to facilitate navigation and improve the usability of the Website.

Types of cookies used

While browsing a site, the User may also receive cookies on his/her terminal that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site he/she is visiting may reside. The cookies used may be of various types depending on the purpose and scope of use. There are two macro-categories: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies.

A) Technical cookies


These are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying 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 such service" (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Personal Data Protection Code). They are not used for any other purpose and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the operator of the site to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user. Users' prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to Article 13 of the Personal Data Protection Code remains unaffected, which the site operator, if it only uses such devices, may provide in the manner it deems most appropriate.

B) Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web. European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of such cookies and thus express his/her valid consent. They are referred to in Article 122 of the Code where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contracting party or user has expressed his or her consent after having been informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13(3)"? (Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Personal Data Protection Code). Our cookies allow us, for example, to: store the preferences you have entered; avoid having to re-enter the same information several times during your visit, such as your username and password; analyse the use of the services and content provided in order to optimise your browsing experience and the services offered.

C) Third party marketing/retargeting cookies

Third-party cookies are used by third-party companies and allow the user to display banner ads on other affiliated sites showing the latest products or services viewed on In addition, while you are browsing these cookies are used to make you view products or services that may be of interest to you and similar to those previously viewed.

Privacy policy on the use of cookies

The provision of the Guarantor no. 229 of 8 May 2014, also taking into account some resolutions of the European body that brings together all the Privacy Authorities of the various Member States, states that in case of use of "technical cookies" the Owner must provide appropriate information to the User (Art. 13 Privacy Code), while there is no obligation to obtain explicit consent.
