What is a cookie and what is its purpose

Cookies are small text strings that the website sends to the User's terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored and then sent back to the same website the next time the User visits (so-called first-party cookies). It is, therefore, a tool that assists the Data Controller in providing the service according to the different purposes pursued. Some of these purposes may also require the User's consent; this consent may be revoked freely at any time by following the instructions contained in this document. During navigation on the site, the User may also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different websites (so-called third-party cookies) and this happens because the website visited may contain images, maps, links to other web pages and other elements that reside on servers other than that on which the page requested is located.  The responsibility and management of first party cookies is assumed directly by the Data Controller, while that of third-party cookies fall on the respective Controllers.

Types of cookies

Cookies may have a limited duration of a single browsing session (so-called session cookies) and be automatically deactivated when the browser is closed, or they may have a predetermined expiry date (so-called permanent cookies) and remain active until that time, thus continuing to collect information during the different browsing sessions.  To provide a complete description of these devices, it is necessary to make further distinctions based on their technical characteristics. In fact, cookie are used for various functions: some are necessary to allow the User to browse the website and take advantage of its functions (technical cookies); others are used to obtain statistical information, whether aggregated or not, on the number of Users accessing the site and on how the site is used (so-called analytic cookies); others are used to track the profile of the consumer and allow the same to display advertising consistent with the tastes and consumption habits of the User (so-called profiling cookies).  

Which cookies are used and for what purposes

The following cookies are currently used on this site: 

  • technical and functional cookies: used to save the session and perform other activities strictly necessary for the operation of the site, to save preferences and optimize the User's browsing experience;
  • first and third-party analytical cookies: used to collect information in aggregate form on Users' browsing, including, for example, the number of users who access and how they use the services offered;
  • first and third-party profiling cookies: used to track the User's navigation to profile him/her (in terms of tastes, habits, consumption choices, etc.) and send personalized advertising.

Google Analytics 

Analytic cookies are used on the site to collect statistical information, aggregate or otherwise, about the number of users accessing the site and how they visit the site. These types of cookies are third party cookies, as they are not directly installed or transmitted by The Controller but by third parties. To evaluate the performance of the site Google Analytics is used. Google Analytics is an analysis tool from Google that helps website and app owners to understand how visitors interact with the contents they own. A set of cookies can be used to gather information and generate statistics regarding use of the website without personal identification of individual visitors by Google. These markers are used to store information about visitors, such as the moment in time when the site was visited, the previous visit and through which domain the same visitors have come to the site.

Social Buttons 

On the site there are widgets ("social buttons") that represent the icon of social networks. These "buttons" allow Users who are browsing the site to interact with a "click" directly with the social networks depicted therein. In this case, the social network acquires data relating to the visit.  To ensure that the data processed on this site is not reconnected to the User's social profile, it is recommended to disconnect from the same. The platforms owned by third parties that can be accessed are not covered by this policy. For more information on the processing of personal data the User is invited to consult the relevant Privacy Policy.
