Cookie Policy

rev. 02 of 9/01/2022

This information is defined in accordance with relevant laws and regulations (Directive 2009/136/EC “Guidelines on cookies and other tracking tools” – Italian Data Protection Authority – 10 June 2021), specifying to website operators the procedures for informing and obtaining users’ consent to the usage of cookies.  The website uses cookies, like all modern websites, to optimise the users’ browsing experience.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send and store on the user’s browsing device, and are then sent back to the same websites at the next visit. Thanks to cookies, a website remembers the user’s actions and preferences (e.g. login details, language, font size, display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be specified again when the user returns to the same website or navigates from one section to another. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, monitor sessions and storage information about the activities of users accessing a site; they may also contain a unique identification code that allows tracking of the user’s navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations cannot be carried out without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are therefore technically necessary for the operation of the website.

Categories of cookies

There are different types of cookies based on their features and functions, which can remain on the user’s device for different periods of time: session cookies (which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed), as well as persistent cookies (which remain on the user’s device until a predefined expiry date).


According to current Italian legislation, the use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, no such consent is required for “technical cookies“, i.e. cookies that are necessary for the purpose of carrying out the transfer of a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent that is strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these are cookies that are essential for the functioning of the site or necessary to carry out activities requested by the user. Analytical or statistical cookies, including third parties cookies, are treated in the same way as technical cookies, provided that they are used to produce aggregate statistics and do not directly identify the user concerned.

By contrast, for the use of non-technical “tracking cookies” or “profiling cookies“, i.e. cookies aimed at creating user profiles and/or used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web, the user’s prior consent is required.


Types of cookies on the website


Technical cookies

Our website uses technical cookies, which are necessary for its proper functioning within the limits of what is required for the safe and efficient navigation of the sites and to record the choices expressed by the users in relation to the use of cookies.

No personal user data is acquired in this regard. The use of session cookies (not permanently stored on the user’s computer and disappearing as soon as the browser is closed) is limited to the transmission of such session identifiers as necessary to enable the safe and efficient navigation of the website.

The website also contains specific persistent technical cookies that enable the recording of the consents expressed by the user with regard to the different categories of cookies.

The use of technical cookies does not require the user’s consent, but adequate information must be provided.



Analysis/statistical cookies

Analytical and statistical cookies are used to collect information about the usage of the website. They are the basis for statistical analysis, actions to improve and simplify functionality as well as to monitor the proper functioning of the website. The cookies on our website are collected and managed to monitor and improve performance, provide information on metrics such as number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc.

The analytical cookies used on the website are technical cookies as they only provide aggregate statistics and do not allow the direct identification of the user.

The use of analytical/statistical cookies with the settings described does not require the user’s prior consent.


Tracking/advertising cookies

This website contains tracking/advertising cookies for the transmission of information of a personal nature. They are used by third parties to provide visitors with personalised services and ads and marketing campaigns relevant to their preferences.

The use of tracking/advertising cookies with the settings described requires the user’s prior consent.
