Cookie policy


What are cookies and what do they do?

Cookies are small text strings that websites (“publishers” or “first parties”) visited by the user place and store on his/her terminal equipment, such as a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on his/her terminal that are sent by different sites or web servers (“third parties”). The software used to browse the Internet and operate these devices, such as browsers, can store cookies and then transmit them back to the sites that generated them on a subsequent visit by the same user, thus keeping a memory of the user’s previous interaction with one or more websites.

The information encoded in cookies may include personal information, such as an IP address, username, unique identifier or email address, but may also contain non-personal information, such as language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the site.

Cookies can perform important and different functions, including allowing the operation of the web page itself, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations of users accessing the server, facilitating the use of online content, conveying advertising and measuring the effectiveness of the advertising message, or conforming the type and modalities of services rendered to the user’s behaviour as previously observed.






Classification of cookies

The types of cookies fall into two macro categories:

– Technical cookies: these are used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information company service explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide such a service” (Art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Data Protection Code). They are not used for additional purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website.

Users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies.

– Profiling cookies: these are used to link specific actions or behavioural patterns recurring in the use of the functions offered to specific identified or identifiable users, in order to group the various profiles within homogeneous clusters of different sizes, so that the owner can, among other things, modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly personalised manner beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as send targeted advertising messages, i.e. in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web.

Users’ prior consent is required for the installation of such cookies.
