1. Background

This policy aims to explain to you what cookies are, how they are used on the Site and how you can make informed decisions about how to manage them.

The information is also provided pursuant to Article 13 of Legislative Decree no. 679/2016 (Personal Data Protection Code).

The computer systems and the technical and software procedures underlying the operation of this website acquire, in the course of their normal operation, certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the operating mechanisms and protocols in use on the Internet.

Each time you access this site and each time you call up or request content, access data is stored on our systems and potentially by the controller and processors, in the form of tabular or linear data files (within log files), structured and/or unstructured.

This data may be used by the Owner for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site in order to identify the pages preferred by users and thus provide increasingly appropriate content and to check its correct functioning. At the request of the Authority, the data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site or its users.

Definition of cookies

These are small text aggregates that are stored locally in the temporary memory of your browser for varying periods of time as required. Cookies can be used to semi-permanently record information about your preferences and other technical data that will make your browsing easier and more user-friendly. For example, cookies can be used to determine whether a connection has already been made between your computer and our site to highlight new features or maintain your "login" information.

Based on the different functions they perform, cookies can be divided into:

  • Technical cookies
  • Analytics cookies
  • Profiling cookies


Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those that are necessary for the sole purpose of enabling you to visit and use a website. Technical cookies are not used for any other purpose and are installed directly by the website operator.

They can be further subdivided into:

browsing cookies: they ensure normal browsing and use of the Site, enabling, for example, a purchase to be made or authentication to access restricted areas. They are normally session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed;

functionality cookies: these allow navigation according to a number of selected criteria (e.g. language or country of origin) in order to improve the service provided on the Site. These are persistent cookies, which remain on your computer after you close your browser until the expiry date for each cookie or until you delete them manually.

As required by current privacy legislation, no consent is required for the installation of such cookies.

Tracking or 'analytics' cookies

Analytics cookies are used to collect statistical information, whether or not in aggregate form, on the number of users accessing the Site and how they visit the Site.

As required by current privacy legislation, prior consent is required for the installation of third-party analytics cookies.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are used to create a user profile, based on the preferences and tastes expressed when browsing the Internet, and to display advertisements consistent with the profile.

As required by current privacy legislation, prior consent is required for the installation of such cookies.

4. Consent

The cookies on this Site are installed by third parties who act as independent data controllers.

When you access the Site, you will see a banner informing you that third-party cookies are used on the Site and that, by closing the banner, you consent to the use of cookies.

We keep track of your consent to the installation of such cookies through a technical cookie. This prevents you from seeing the cookie banner on your subsequent visits to the Site.

Should you delete this technical cookie from your browser in the manner set out in paragraph 6 below, the trace of your consent will be lost and, therefore, the cookie banner will be displayed again on your next visit to the Site.

You are, of course, free to block the installation of cookies at any time, without your ability to visit the Site and enjoy its contents being affected in any way.

Other personal data

At various points on this website you have the possibility of transmitting personal data to us.

The sending of this data is done on an optional, explicit and voluntary basis, and involves the subsequent acquisition of the personal data entered for the purposes of the service and those further granted by you.

The personal data you provide will be recorded and stored on protected electronic media and processed with appropriate security measures, including associating and integrating them with other databases.

The data will not be disclosed but may be communicated, where necessary for the provision of the service, to companies that perform tasks of a technical or organisational nature instrumental to the provision of the services requested.
