14. Cookie Policy

What are Cookies?

Cookies are packets of information sent by a web server (e.g. the site) to your Internet browser, automatically stored on your computer and automatically sent back to the server each time you access the site.

By default, almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies.

Typically, cookies can be installed:

  • directly by the owner and/or manager of the website (so-called first-party cookies);
  • by responsible parties outside the website visited by the user (so-called third-party cookies). Unless otherwise specified, it is recalled that these cookies fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the operator itself. Further information on privacy and their use can be found directly on the websites of the respective operators.

This website may use, also in combination with each other, the following types of cookies classified according to the indications of the Privacy Guarantor and the Opinions issued at European level by the Working Group ex art. 29 of the GDPR:

  • Session, are the cookies that are not stored persistently on the user’s computer and are deleted when the browser is closed, they are strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site, avoiding the use of other IT techniques potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of users’ browsing.
  • Persistent, are cookies that remain stored on the computer hard disk until they expire or are deleted by users/visitors. Through persistent cookies, visitors accessing the site (or any other users using the same computer) are automatically recognised each time they visit. Visitors can set their computer’s browser to accept/reject all cookies or to display a warning each time a cookie is proposed, so that they can decide whether or not to accept it. The user can, however, change the default configuration and disable cookies (i.e. block them permanently) by setting the highest level of protection.
  • Technical, are the cookies used for authentication, to use multimedia content such as flash players or to allow the choice of navigation language. It is therefore generally not necessary to obtain the user’s prior and informed consent. This also includes cookies used to statistically analyse access/visits to the site only if they are used exclusively for statistical purposes and through the collection of information in aggregate form.
  • Non-technical, are all cookies used for profiling and marketing purposes. Their use on users’ terminals is forbidden if they have not been adequately informed beforehand and have not given valid opt-in consent. These types of cookies are, in turn, grouped according to the functions they perform in:
    • Analitycs. are cookies used to collect and analyse statistical information on access/visits to the website. In some cases, associated with other information such as the credentials entered to access restricted areas (one’s e-mail address and password), they can be used to profile the user (personal habits, sites visited, content downloaded, types of interactions carried out, etc.).
    • Widgets, this category includes all those graphic components of a programme’s user interface, the purpose of which is to facilitate the user in interacting with the programme itself. For example, facebook, google+, twitter cookies are widgets.
    • Advertsing, cookies used to advertise within a site fall into this category. Google falls into this category.
    • Web beacons, this category includes code snippets that allow a website to transfer or collect information by requesting a graphic image. Web sites may use them for various purposes, such as analysing the use of websites, monitoring and reporting on advertisements and customising advertisements and content.
