Cookie policy


This cookie policy refers exclusively to the site (“Site”) and must be understood as an integral part of the Privacy Policy of the same.


Cookies are small text files that the sites you visit send and record on your computer or mobile device, and are then retransmitted to the same sites the next time you visit. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the actions and preferences of the user (such as, for example, login data, the language chosen, font size, other display settings, etc..) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to visit that site or navigate from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site and may also contain a unique identification code that allows you to keep track of your navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, you may also receive cookies from sites or web servers other than the one you are visiting on your computer or mobile device (so-called “third party” cookies).

Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore
technically necessary for the very operation of the site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and they may remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device until a set deadline.

Technical cookies are cookies used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication 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 a service” (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code) and therefore serve to perform navigation or to provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website operator. Technical cookies can be divided into:

In accordance with article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code and with the Provision of the Guarantor of 8 May 2014, no. 229, “technical” cookies may be used even without the consent of the person concerned. Among other things, the same European body that brings together all the privacy authorities of the various Member States, in Opinion 4/2012 (WP194) entitled “Exemption from consent for the use of cookies” clarified that they are cookies for which it is not necessary to acquire the prior informed consent of the user:

Profiling cookies are cookies designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertisements in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that these cookies may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation require that the user must be adequately informed about the use of them and express their valid consent to their use. Article 122 of the Code refers to profiling cookies, where it states that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after being informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13, (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are those cookies that, while browsing, the user may receive on his terminal from different sites or web servers (so-called “third-party” cookies): this happens because there may be elements on the site, such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than that on which the page requested is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by web site operators or servers other than the Site. These third parties may in theory set cookies when you visit the Site and thus obtain information about the fact that you have visited our website.


The Site uses the following types of cookies, and offers the possibility of de-selection of the same, except for third party cookies for which the user must refer directly to the mode of selection and de-selection of the respective cookies, indicated by links:

ATTENTION: by disabling technical and/or functionality cookies, the Site may not be available or certain services or functions of the Site may not be available or may not function properly, and you may be forced to modify or manually enter certain information or preferences each time you visit the Site.

c) Through the website

For information and to disable profiling cookies provided by third parties, you can also use the site:

Your Online Choices is a website managed by the non-profit European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA), the Italian version of which is available at, which provides information on behavioural advertising based on profiling cookies and allows Internet users to easily oppose (opt-out) the installation of the main profiling cookies installed by advertisers and used on websites. Before using this tool, we recommend that you carefully read the general terms and conditions of service of Your Online Choices, the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and the User Guide (HELP).

N.B.: Although Your Online Choices brings together many of the world’s leading advertising companies that use cookies, some of the third parties who install cookies through the Site may not have joined Your Online Choices. Therefore, the use of Your Online Choices does not guarantee that you will receive third-party cookies while browsing the Site. Also, remember that if you delete all cookies from your browser, even technical cookies issued by Your Online Choices to remember your choices may be deleted, making third-party cookies active again.


On our site there are social buttons/widgets depicting the icons of some social networks (e.g. facebook). These buttons allow users who are browsing the sites to interact with a “click” directly with the social networks represented there. In this case, the social network acquires data relating to the user’s visit, while the Owner will not share any navigation information or user data acquired through its site with social networks accessible through social buttons / widgets.


As noted above, the duration of cookies depends on their nature: session cookies expire when the user closes the browser; persistent cookies remain in the terminal when the browser is closed for a certain time. Storage times are fixed by the server at the time of their creation.


The owner reserves the right to make changes to this cookie policy. You agree to be bound by any such future revisions and you agree to visit this page periodically to be informed of any such changes.
