Below is the Cookie policy to be used as extended information pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereinafter “GDPR”).

Cookies: what are they?

Cookies are packets of information sent by a web server (e.g., the Site) to the User’s Internet browser, automatically stored on the User’s computer and automatically sent back to the server each time the User accesses the Site.

By default, almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies.

Typically, cookies can be installed:

  • – Directly by the website owner and/or manager (so-called first-party cookies)
  • – by responsible parties outside the website visited by the User (so-called third-party cookies). Unless otherwise specified, it is recalled that these cookies fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the operator itself. Further information on privacy and their use can be found directly on the websites of the respective operators.

This website may use, also in combination with each other, the following types of cookies, classified according to the indications of the Privacy Guarantor, as well as the documents issued in the European context by the Art. 29 Working Group and the European Data Protection Committee.

Classification according to storage duration:

  • Sessional, which are not stored persistently on the User’s computer and are deleted when the browser is closed; they are strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site, avoiding the use of other IT techniques that could potentially jeopardise the confidentiality of users’ browsing
  • Persistent which remain stored on the computer hard disk until they expire or are deleted by users/visitors. Through persistent cookies, visitors accessing the site (or any other users using the same computer) are automatically recognised at each visit. Visitors can set their computer’s browser to accept/reject all cookies or to display a warning each time they visit. Visitors can set their computer browser to accept/reject all cookies or to display a warning whenever a cookie is proposed, so that they can assess whether or not to accept it. The User can, however, change the default configuration and disable cookies (i.e., block them permanently) by setting the highest level of protection.

Classification according to functionality

  • Technical cookies are the ones used for authentication, to use multimedia content such as flash player or to allow the choice of navigation language. It is therefore generally not necessary to obtain the User’s prior and informed consent. This also includes cookies used to statistically analyse access/visits to the site only if they are used exclusively for statistical purposes and through the collection of information in aggregate form.
  • Non-technical are all cookies used for profiling and marketing purposes. Their use on users’ terminals is forbidden if they have not been adequately informed beforehand and have not given valid opt-in consent. These types of cookies are, in turn, grouped according to the functions they perform in:
  • Analytics. These are cookies used to collect and analyse statistical information on access/visits to the website. In some cases, associated with other information such as the credentials entered to access restricted areas (your email address and password), they can be used to profile the User (personal habits, sites visited, content downloaded, types of interactions carried out, etc.).
  • Widgets. This category includes all those graphic components of a programme’s user interface, the purpose of which is to facilitate the User in interacting with the programme itself. By way of example, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, or LinkedIn cookies are widgets.
  • Advertising. This category includes cookies used to advertise within a site. By way of example, Google and Tradedoubler fall into this category.
  • Web beacons/Pixels. Code snippets that allow a website to transfer or collect information by requesting a graphic image fall into this category. Websites may use them for a variety of purposes, such as analysing website usage, monitoring and reporting on advertisements, and personalising advertisements and content.

Cookies on the Site

Technical cookies for which consent is not required

The cookies on the Site are first-party technical and analytical cookies. They are indispensable for the navigation and correct display of the Site and, in the case of analytical cookies, markers that do not allow the direct and unique identification of the User. The User’s consent is not required for these cookies and they are active by default.

Third-parties cookies

With your consent, the Site may use statistical and marketing cookies installed by third parties. These cookies are deactivated by default.

When you access the Site for the first time, you are shown a banner that informs you in detail about the markers used and allows you to give your specific consent.

The Site keeps track of your possible consent to the installation of these markers by means of a technical cookie, so that the banner is not shown to you again each time you access the Site. If you were to delete this technical cookie from your browser, the trace of your consent would be lost and, consequently, the banner would reappear on your next visit.

You can change your preferences regarding the use of cookies at any time by clicking on the appropriate button on the bottom left-hand side of every page on the Site.

If you log in to the Site using the credentials of a social network with which you are registered, you will receive such third-party cookies from the operator of the social network in question which, in addition to allowing authentication on the Site, may be for profiling purposes.

Before logging in through the buttons dedicated to social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), we invite the User to carefully read the information provided by the operators of these websites on the use of these cookies.

Below is a list of the social network cookies used on the Site, with an indication of the links to the information pages created by their owners:

If you wish, you can also manage cookies directly through your browser settings. However, deleting cookies from your browser may remove the preferences you have set for the website. In this case, the next time you access the Site the banner will reappear, from which you can reset your preferences.
