Cookie Policy

We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand what personal data we hold about you and how we treat it.

Definitions, characteristics and application of regulations

Cookie and similar technologies are small text files sent and recorded on users’ computers or mobile devices during their first visit, which are then transmitted back to those sites during the next visit. Thanks to cookies, the sites remember the user’s actions and preferences (such as login data, the default language, font sizes, additional display settings, etc.) so that they do not need to specify them again when they revisit the site and browse its pages.

Cookies are therefore used to perform IT authentications, session monitoring, and to store information about the activities of users who access a website, and may also contain a unique identifier that allows for monitoring of user experiences on the site for statistical or advertising purposes. While navigating a site, the user may also receive cookies and similar technologies on their computer or mobile device from sites or web servers other than the one they are visiting (so-called “third party” cookies). Some operations cannot be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are technically necessary for the operation of the site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their features and functions, and these may remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser; and so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device until a pre-established date.

Prior explicit consent for the use of cookies is not always required. In particular, such consent is not required for “technical cookies”, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, cookies which are indispensable for the operation of the site or to perform tasks requested by the user.

Among technical cookies, which do not require prior explicit consent for their use, there are: i) navigation or session cookies (for authentication); ii) functional cookies which allow users to navigate on the basis of a set of selected criteria (the language or the products selected for purchase, for example) in order to improve the service provided to them.

Prior consent from users is instead required for “analytics” and “profiling cookies”, i.e. those aimed at providing analytical statistics of the usage of a website or those creating profiles for users in order to send them advertising messages in line with the preferences they have expressed while surfing the web.
