This website uses cookies.
Below we inform you about the operation of cookies on the website. Our website uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of the services offered and improve the experience of using online applications.

use cookies to personalize content, provide social media functions and analyze website traffic. Cookies are small text files that can be used by websites to make the experience more efficient for the user. The law states that we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies, we need your permission.

This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are placed by third-party services that appear on some pages. Your consent applies to the website and is processed in accordance with the privacy policy available at this address.

Definition of cookies

Cookies are small text files sent by the website and downloaded to the user’s device (usually to the browser) where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the website that originated them (first-party cookies) or to another site that recognizes them (third-party cookies) at the next visit by the same user. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to visit said site or navigates from one page to another of it. Each cookie is unique to the user’s web browser and is stored, according to user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone) allowing a website to recognize the user’s device. Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the very functioning of the site. It is intended to refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies”.

Purpose of processing and purposes of cookies

The cookies used on the web are intended to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of technical information regarding the activities of users who access a site and may also contain a unique identification code that allows you to keep track of the user’s navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations on the web could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in such cases are therefore technically necessary and indispensable to allow you to navigate effectively between web pages, remember your favorite sites and, in general, improve the browsing experience. Cookies allow the web server to store information on the device to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies: they remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed) or even in subsequent visits by the user (persistent cookies: they survive when the browser is closed and remain on the user’s device until a pre-established deadline).

Pursuant to the Provision of 8 May 2014 on “Identification of simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies” and Provision no. 231 of 10 June 2021 containing “Cookie guidelines and other tracking tools”, based on the characteristics and use of cookies, two macro-categories can be identified: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

a – Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. Technical cookies, for the installation of which the prior consent of users is not required, are essential to allow you to browse a website and use all its features. In other words, these cookies are essential to ensure normal navigation or necessary to allow the use of the site itself (such as, Internet Protocol address (IP), type of browser and device parameters used to connect to the site, name of the internet service provider (ISP), date and time of visit, web page of origin of the visitor (referral) and exit,  number of clicks); A cookie of this type is also used to store a user’s decision on the use of cookies on the website. Among the technical cookies are identified: navigation or session cookies (allow, for example, to make a purchase or to authenticate to access restricted areas or, simply, to memorize the decision of a user on the use of cookies on the site); analytical cookies (or performance cookies) similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, for statistical purposes (on accesses or on the number of users and how they visit the site or on which pages are most frequently visited) to improve its functioning; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

b – Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are used (by way of explanation only, since the site does not use them) to create profiles related to users while browsing and are aimed at analyzing their movements, consultation or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.) as well as to store the choices they make on the site and / or the services that are expressly requested,  in order to guarantee increasingly advanced services aimed at publishing personalized content (such as, for example, advertising banners, images, videos, etc.) targeted to a user and his interests or to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net.  Due to the particular invasiveness that these devices can have in the private sphere of users, the use of these cookies involves the prior acquisition of the user’s informed consent through the banner visible to the same at the first access or, subsequently, through other technical device that indicates, even in an essential way (for example, in the footer of each page of the domain) the status of the consents previously made by the user allowing it  any modification or update.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are cookies set directly by managers of different sites or web servers (used for the purposes of these third parties) that, while browsing this site, the user may receive (by way of explanation, since the site  does not use it) on his device . This happens because on the site there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested web page is located. These cookies can be sent to the user’s browser by third parties directly from their websites (which can be accessed by browsing the site) and are the responsibility of these third parties. The use of third-party cookies involves the prior acquisition of the user’s informed consent through the banner visible to the same on this website.

An example is represented by “third-party cookies” used to customize the advertising exposure according to the user’s interest and the frequency of exposure to the message (advertisers, as an indication, could use their own cookies to collect information on the activities performed by users on the website and use this information also to measure the effectiveness of their advertising) or by the presence of “social plugins” for  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, whose most common use is aimed at sharing content on social networks. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site: the presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. From the moment the user clicks on any icons of the social networks themselves, he is directed to the respective sites and from these receives cookies that are not under the control of the Owner. The management of third-party cookies, as well as the management of information collected by third parties, is governed by the relative “cookie policies” to which reference should be made. To ensure greater transparency, below are the updated links to the respective information containing how to manage cookies:


Refuse and block cookies

Most Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically. This means that the user has the possibility, at any time, to set his browser to accept all cookies, only some, or to refuse them, disabling their use by websites. Cookie preferences, in terms of authorization, blocking or deletion (in whole or in part) must be set separately for each browser, since each of them offers specific features and options. In addition, you can normally set your browser preferences in such a way that you are notified each time a cookie is stored on your device.  Finally, at the end of each browsing session, it is possible to delete the cookies collected from the hard disk of the device. The total or partial disabling of technical cookies may compromise, in whole or in part, the use of the site features reserved for users, the viewing of the contents and the usability of the related services: inhibiting functionality cookies may in fact result in some services or certain functions of the site not being available or not working properly. Disabling third-party cookies does not affect, in any way, navigability on this website.

Your cookie preferences will be reset if you use different devices or browsers to access the website. Browsers also allow you to define different settings for “first-party” cookies and “third-party” cookies.
