1. What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files sent to users when they visit a website. They are stored on the computer’s hard disk and allow the website to recognise users and store certain information on them, in order to allow or improve the service offered.

There are different types of cookies. Some are required in order to browse the site, others have different purposes such as guaranteeing internal security, administration of the system, performing statistical analysis, understanding which sections of the site are of most interest to users, or offering a personalised website visit.

The Site uses technical cookies and not profiling cookies. The foregoing refers both to the user’s computer and any other device the user may make use of to connect to the Site.

Technical Cookies

Technical cookies are those used solely to carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order to provide an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user.

They are not usually used for additional purposes, and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website.

They may be divided into navigation or session cookies – which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing the user, for example, to make a purchase or log in to access restricted areas), analytics cookies – equivalent to technical cookies where used directly by the website operator to gather information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site), and functionality cookies – which offer navigation to the users based on a series of selected criteria (for example language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service supplied.

Profiling Cookies

Profiling cookies create user profiles and are used to display advertising in accordance with the user’s preferences as evidenced by their web browsing.

Prior consent is required for the use of profiling cookies. According to ruling no. 229 of 8 May 2014, users may authorise or reject consent for the installation of profiling cookies when present.

With regard to third-party cookies, the Site does not have direct control over the individual cookies and cannot control them (it cannot either directly install them or delete them). It is nevertheless possible to manage these cookies through the web browser’s settings (follow the instructions given below), or the website specified in the “Cookies Management” section.
