Cookie Policy

ABOUT COOKIES AND THEIR PURPOSE

Cookies are small text strings that visited sites send to the user's terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then sent back to the same sites on the next visit by the same user.
While surfing through a website, the user may also receive cookies on his/her device from different sites or web servers (so-called third parties), on which some elements (such as, for instance, pictures, maps, audios, specific links to pages of other domains) may be present on the site he/she is visiting.
Since the installation of cookies and other tracking systems by third parties through the services used within this application cannot be technically controlled by the Data Controller, any specific reference to cookies and tracking systems installed by third parties is to be considered as indicative.
Users are invited to contact the Data Controller if they wish to receive any further information on the use of cookies.

TYPE OF COOKIES

Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies
There are two kinds of cookies: session cookies, limited to one visit, and persistent cookies. Session cookies are automatically deleted from the computer when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies remain stored in the computer until they are deleted or until their pre-determined expiry date.

Technical and profiling cookies
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or insofar as is strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service expressly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service. They are not used for any other purpose and normally are directly installed by the owner or operator of the website.
They can be broken down into:
• Browsing or session cookies that ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
• Analytics cookies assimilated to technical cookies where these are used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and the way they browse the site;
• Functionality cookies that allow the user to surf through the site according to a set of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
Users' prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies.
Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web. Because of the particular intrusiveness that such tools may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of such tools and thereby express his/her valid consent. Information may only be stored in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user, or accessed to information already stored, if the contracting party or user has given his/her consent following adequate information.

FIRST AND THIRD PARTY COOKIES
First-party cookies are those belonging to the site that created them. Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are created by domains external to the site and whose data are stored by the third party having its own privacy policy and on which falls the obligation to advise the user on the use of cookies and to acquire, if necessary, the user's prior consent as Data Controller.
Should a website also allow the transmission of third-party cookies, the third party is normally responsible for providing information and obtaining consent. The user must be adequately informed, albeit in the simplified manner provided for by law, when accessing the site allowing the storage of third-party cookies, or when accessing the content provided by third parties and, in any case, before the cookies are downloaded to his/her terminal.
