Cookies Policy

This website uses cookies and technologies to ensure the procedures run correctly and to improve its user experience.

This policy, in compliance with Directive 2009/136/EC and Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/2003, provides information on cookies and similar technologies, on how they are used on the Website and on how to manage them and it supplements the contents of the Privacy Policy which can be consulted at the following link to which reference is made.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files, short fragments of text (letters/numbers) that are inserted onto your device (computer, tablet, smartphone..), allowing the server to memorise on the client (the browser) information to be reused during the same visit to the Website (known as session cookies or temporary cookies) or even later after a few days (known as persistent cookies).

Types of Cookies

There are various types of cookie, distinguished by characteristics and use: some help to make use of the Website more effective, others are used to enable certain functions. Depending on the entity from which they originate, cookies are separated into:

- Own cookies (or first party cookies):
they are sent to your computer or device from a computer or domain managed by the Website manager and from which the service requested by you is provided - Third party cookies:
they are sent to your computer or device from a device or domain that is not managed by the Website manager, but by another entity which processes the data obtained via the cookies. The cookies installed on this Website are both own cookies and third party cookies.

Technical cookies

The Website only uses technical cookies, such as browser or session cookies, functional and analytic cookies:

- Browser cookies
these ensure normal browsing and use of the Website, and are thus aimed at making functional and optimising browsing on the Website. They are essential to the correct functioning of the Website.

- Functional cookies
They allow information to be stored that modifies the behaviour or appearance of the Website (e.g. preferred language, font and text size, geographical area in which you are located). If they are blocked, the browsing experience may be less functional, but not compromised.

- Analytics cookies
Analytics cookies, i.e. cookies that collect and analyse information on Website use and traffic (e.g. most popular pages) are present.

In order to have a complete and reliable statistics service regarding use of the Website itself, the Google Analytics traffic analysis service is used, as provided by the company Google Inc. (hereafter Google) based at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States. These are third party cookies that collect data anonymously to monitor and improve the Website performance.
This Website does not use and does not allow third parties to use the Google tool to monitor or collect personal identification data.
However, the data acquired via the Google Analytics service may also be used by Google. In compliance with the indications provided by the Data Protection Authority, we inform you that we have anonymised the IP (therefore, Google Analytics will render anonymous your IP address as soon as technically possible). In addition, we have changed the "data sharing" settings with Google Analytics and Google will thus use the personal data registered via the service only within the limits of the instructions imparted by the manager of the Website itself and will not share it with other Google services; the advertising and data sharing options with Google or additional services have not been activated. Google will not associate the IP address with any other data possessed by Google and will not seek to connect an IP address with your identity. Google may have to communicate this information to third parties where required by law or where those third parties process the aforementioned information on behalf of Google.

You may selectively disable the Google Analytics action by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on your browser. To disable the Google Analytics action, please visit the link below: No profiling cookies (not technical) are used by the Website manager.

Third party cookies

When browsing this Website you may also receive cookies from third parties that reside abroad or even in Italy.

- Analytics cookies of third party services
These cookies are used to collect anonymous information on use of the Website by you such as: pages visited, origins of traffic, geographical origin, time spent on the Website, age, gender and interests for the purposes of marketing campaigns. These cookies are sent from domains of third parties external to the Website. The analytics cookies used on this Website are third party cookies as specified above.

- Cookies for integrating products and software functions of third parties
This type of cookie integrates functions developed by third parties into the pages of the Website: these are, for example, icons and preferences expressed on social networks for the purpose of sharing the Website contents or for using software services of third parties (such as software for generating maps â€" such as Google Maps - and other software offering additional services). These cookies are sent from domains of third parties and from partner websites that offer their functions among the pages of the Website. Social plug-ins are also third party cookies (e.g.: “like” or “share” of social networks, for example, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn, YouTube). The most common use of these social plug-ins is to share contents on social networks so as to enhance the user experience. The presence of these plug-ins generates the transmission of cookies from and to all websites managed by third parties. These cookies can be used to track your browsing on the internet and to create profiles on your tastes, habits, choices, etc. Using these cookies, advertising messages can be sent to your computer with the preferences already shown by you by browsing online. The management of information collected by “third parties” is regulated by the respective privacy policies, to which we ask you to refer, it being understood that the manager of this Website is not responsible for third party cookies.
