Cookie Policy


Cookies are small text strings that sites visited by the user send to the user’s terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored in order to be retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits. In the course of browsing a site, the user may also receive on his terminal equipment cookies 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 that the same is visiting may reside.



Cookies can be limited to a session or be persistent. Session cookies are automatically deleted from the computer when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies remain stored on the computer until deleted or until the predetermined expiration date.


Technical cookies 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” (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). They are not used for any further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. 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 the access to restricted areas);
  • analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where 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 itself;
  • 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 rendered to the same.

Users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies. Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles related to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing. Due to the particular invasiveness that these devices can have within the private sphere of users, European and Italian regulations provide that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and thus express his/her valid consent. They are referred to in Article 122 of the Privacy Code where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal device of a contractor or user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has expressed his or her consent after being informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13 Privacy Code, paragraph 3.”


First-party Cookies are those that belong to the site that created them. Third-party Cookies, on the other hand, are those created by domains external to the site and whose data are stored by the third party that has its own privacy policy and on which rests the obligation to inform the user about the use of cookies and to acquire their prior consent, if any, as the data controller. In cases where a site also allows the transmission of “third-party” cookies, the information and acquisition of consent are usually the responsibility of the third party. It is necessary that the user be adequately informed, albeit in the simplified manner provided by law, when accessing the site that allows the storage of third-party cookies, that is, when accessing the content provided by the third party and, in any case, before the cookies are downloaded to his or her terminal.


This site uses technical cookies in order to facilitate the operation of the site and improve user navigation. This site uses third-party cookies (Google Analytics) for statistical purposes in order to improve the content on the site. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”) that allows tracking the number of users, pages viewed or time spent on a particular page and is aimed at identifying which pages are the most viewed by visitors to the site, how long they stayed within the same or the geographical area from which they came. This information is processed only for statistical purposes and in an anonymous form. The information collected by Google Analytics, including the visitor’s Ip address, is transmitted to the server of Google Inc. in an anonymous form. These cookies cannot be used to do profiling or identify users, but are used only for statistical purposes in aggregate form.
