What are Cookies?

Cookies are data created by a server which are stored in text files on the hard disk of your computer and allow the functioning of this website, the use of a specific functionality explicitly requested by the user, or they allow to improve the functioning of this site, such as cookies that make navigation faster or that show the contents of greatest interest to the user based on previous choices. Cookies can be permanent (so-called persistent cookies), but they can also have a limited duration (so-called session cookies). This site uses both persistent and session cookies. Session data are not stored permanently on your computer and disappear when you close the browser. The persistent ones are used to personalize navigation according to the tool used by the user (computer, tablet, smartphone) as well as third-party cookies which are used to analyze site accesses (e.g. Google Analytics) and to allow users to share the contents of the site through social networks (FB) or e-mail (Add This). These cookies are stored permanently on your computer and have a variable duration.

Types of Cookies

Italian legislation (art. 122 of Legislative Decree 196/03 "Code regarding the protection of personal data" hereinafter briefly "Code") has introduced into our legal system the Community Directive 2009/136/EC which requires the managers of websites that use cookies or other tracking technologies to inform the user about the types of cookies used by the site.

The provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data n. 229 of 8 May 2014, published in the Official Journal no. 126 of 3 June 2014, categorized cookies into two macro-categories: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies.

Technical Cookies , normally installed by the owner or manager of the website, have the purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code).

The prior consent of users is not required for the installation of Technical Cookies.

Technical cookies are further divided into:

Navigation or session cookies , which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website, allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas. These cookies are not stored permanently on the device used by the user and are automatically deactivated when the browser is closed. Their use is linked to the transmission of identification data necessary to allow safe and efficient navigation on the pages. Session cookies do not allow the acquisition of personal identification data of the user in any way.

Analytics cookies , used to collect information on the use of the site, anonymously and to obtain both a statistical analysis of the pages viewed and the behavior of users. This anonymous analysis provides information and suggestions to improve the quality of the site and to make easily accessible the contents that prove most sought after and interesting in the eyes of users. Analytics cookies can be sent both from the site and from third-party domains and do not in any way allow the acquisition of personal identification data of the user. Analytics cookies, if installed by third parties (e.g. Google analytics), even if they collect data anonymously, are assimilated to profiling cookies, as indicated by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data.

Functionality cookies : assimilated to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself. These cookies allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language) in order to improve the service provided.

Profiling Cookies have the purpose of creating user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the internet. These cookies are particularly invasive in the user's private sphere, for this reason European and Italian legislation requires that the user must be adequately informed about their use, thus being able to express their consent. The art refers to them. 122 of the Privacy Code where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal device of a contractor or user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has

expressed their consent after having been informed with the simplified methods referred to in article 13 of the Privacy Code, paragraph 3″ (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

In the same Provision, the Guarantor also categorized cookies according to the entity acting as data controller of the personal data collected by the cookie, distinguishing between "first-party" cookies and "third-party" cookies.

First party cookies

These are cookies managed by the site owner. For these cookies, the obligation to provide information lies with the site owner. The latter is also obliged to indicate the methods for blocking the cookie.

Third party cookies

These are cookies managed by a third party other than the site owner. For these cookies, the obligation to provide information and indicate the methods for blocking the cookie lies with the third party, while the owner of the site is obliged to insert on the site the link to the third party's site where these elements are available.

In both types of cookies (first party or third party) the collection of consent, necessary if the cookie is a profiling cookie, takes place via a specific banner on the home page of the site.

Types of cookies used on our website

The Web site uses technical cookies, which can be used without requesting the consent of the interested party, since they are strictly necessary for the provision of the service. Furthermore, third-party profiling cookies may be used, the use of which is subject to consent directly given to such third parties by accessing the relevant information on the use of cookies. Profiling cookies can be used, by the Data Controller or by the owner of the cookie itself, to memorize the choices made by the interested party, to provide personalized or optimized features or to memorize his habits and preferences expressed during navigation. For example, profiling cookies can be used to offer the interested party online services, to send him advertising that takes his interests into account or to prevent him from being offered services that he has refused in the past.

The following section of this Cookie Policy contains a detailed list of all the cookies used by this website.

The first group lists the so-called technical cookies whose use does not require the user's consent.

The second group lists profiling cookies.

For both groups, the following information is reported for each type of cookie:

• cookie name

• function performed by the cookie

• if the cookie is from a third party, indication of the link through which it is possible to reach the third party's website where the third party's information regarding the processing carried out on the personal data collected through the cookie is reported and the methods for blocking the cookie
