• Cookie Policies

As is customary on all websites, this website also utilises cookies-small text files that permit the storage of information regarding visitor preferences- in order to improve website functionality, to simplify browsing by automating the procedures (e.g. for login and website language) and to analyse website usage.

There are various types of cookies, with different characteristics. In general, cookies can be classified as:

  • session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed (for example, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.)
  • persistent cookies, which, unlike session cookies, remain within the device, continuing to operate even after the browser is closed and until a certain period of time has elapsed
  • first-party cookies or cookies that are generated and managed directly by the manager of the website the user is browsing.
  • third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by subjects other than the manager of the website on which the user is browsing (in force, as a rule, under a contract between the website owner and the third party).

The two functional macro-categories are:

  • technical cookies Technical cookies are generally necessary for the proper functioning of the website and to allow browsing; without them the user may not be able to display the pages correctly or to use some services. For example, technical cookies are essential for keeping the user connected whilst visiting a website, or to store language or display settings, and so on.

Technical cookies can be divided into browser cookies, which guarantee the normal browsing and use of the website (for example, allowing purchases to be made or obtaining authentication to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies because they are used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; whereas functional cookies enable the user to browse based on a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the quality of the service provided.

  • profiling cookies profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to promote offers in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the net. These tools are not necessary for the proper functioning of the site but are used exclusively to allow users to become aware of the offers that best match their needs.

Session cookies are essential in order to distinguish between users connected to the website, and they are useful to prevent a requested feature being provided to the wrong user, as well as for security purposes to stop cyber-attacks on the website. Session cookies do not contain personal data and last only for the current session, that is to say until the browser is closed. No consent is required for them.
This website uses technical cookies that are strictly necessary for its operation, in particular they are linked to an express request for functionality by the user (such as Login) and to perform other strictly necessary activities, such as traffic distribution.

It also uses aggregate statistics cookies strictly necessary for saving preferences, optimisation and statistics, useful for saving browsing preferences and optimising the user’s browsing experience.

By using the website, the visitor expressly consents to the use of cookies.

This website uses third-party cookies, specifically some of the services listed below collect statistics in aggregate and anonymous form and may not require the User’s consent or could be managed directly by the Owner – according to that described – without the help of third parties.
