Cookie Policy

Cookies are small text strings that the websites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored to be then retransmitted to the same sites upon the user’s next visit. During navigation on a website, the user may also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which may reside some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site the user is visiting. Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in a very large number and sometimes with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentications, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, etc. In this regard, and for the purposes of this provision, two macro-categories are therefore identified: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

a. Technical Cookies
Technical cookies are those used solely for “the 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” (cf. art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access reserved areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website itself; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate based on a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.

b. Profiling Cookies
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the internet.

Navigation and Session Cookies

Navigation cookies and session cookies ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to view content on the device by recognizing the language of the country from which the user connects, or to make purchases through e-commerce systems).
