About cookies

I cookie sono stringhe di testo di piccole dimensioni che i siti visitati dall’utente inviano al suo terminale (solitamente al browser), dove vengono memorizzati per essere poi ritrasmessi agli stessi siti alla successiva visita del medesimo utente. As you navigate a website, yourbrowser may receive cookies sent by other, somehow connected websites or web servers (so-called „third-party“ cookies), since some of the elements which appear on the site you are currently visiting – pictures, maps, sounds – may actually reside on other sites; besides, there may be links to pages located in other domains.

Cookie are usually present in users’ browsers in large numbers and may sometimes have a very long expiration time; they serve a number of different purposes, such as user authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations pertaining to the users allowed to access the server, and so on.

Cookies can thus be assigned to two main classes: „technical“ cookies and “profiling” cookies.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those for which user consent is not required. Such cookies are vital to make proper navigation possible and to enable the user to exploit all its features; they are therefore absolutely necessary. Without them some services or functions normally provided by the site would not be available and navigating the site would become clumsy and complicated. Moreover, when one makes one’s choice as to his consent to cookies, information on that choice is actually stored in a technical cookie.

So-called performance cookies, sometimes termed „analytics cookies“, also belong to this class. These cookies gather information concerning the way visitors use our site and enables us to improve it. For example, performance cookies show us which pages have been visited most often; they make it possible for us to identify recurring visiting patterns, if any; they help us understand when and where users finds its difficult to use the site; also, they enable us to assess the effectiveness of the ads placed in the site.

Technical cookies are essential and cannot be disabled by using the features of this website. Generally speaking, cookies can be entirely disabled at any moment through the browser in use.

The following first-party cookies are used in this web site.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are meant to profile users so that advertising can be served to the on the basis of their preferences as shown by their behaviour when online. Since these cookies can substantially affect a user’s privacy, European and Italian regulations mandate that the user be adequately informed about them and the use they are used beforehand and then state his consent.

Article 122 of the relevant Italian regulations („codice in materia di protezione dei dati personali”) specifically applies to these cookies, stating that information can be stored onto a user’s or contracting partner’s device only if they have given their consent after having been informed as per the simplified procedure envisaged in article 13, subsection 3. The same applies to any access to previously saved information concerning said user or contracting partner′′ (article 122, subsection 1 ).

Third-party cookies

This site might also use third-party cookies, e.g. cookies managed by web sites or web servers owned by other companies. For example, this may happen when elements within our website – such as pictures, maps, sound file – are actually hosted on web pages which are not hosted on our servers. Similarly, our pages may include links to such „external“ web pages – involving third/party domains and servers. In this case the aforesaid cookies are managed directly by the third-party wesbite or web server, not by us. Third-party cookies are also used to make advertising fit the visitor’s own interest as surveyed as well as message exposure rates.

This information may be shared with other parties, like advertisers, and they might use their own cookies to gather data on the behaviour of visitors on their web sites. Advertisers might then use this information to assess the effectiveness of their advertising, for example. In order to use those cookies they need to obtain the users’ freely given informed consent first. Such cookies are not directly controlled by our web site.
