This cookies policy refers solely to the company website (“Site”) and must be considered as an integral part of the corresponding Privacy Policy.


Cookies are small text files which the websites visited by the user send to and store on the user’s computer or mobile device, for retransmission to the same websites at the next visit. Thanks to the cookies a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not need to be indicated again when the user returns to the site or browses from one page of the site to another. The cookies are used to carry out information authentication, monitor sessions and store information relating to the activities of the users who access a site and can also contain a unique identification code which allows the user’s browsing to be tracked inside the site itself for statistics or advertising purposes. Whilst browsing a site the user may also receive cookies on his/her computer or mobile device from sites or web servers different from the one being visited (so-called third-party cookies). It may not be possible to carry out certain operations without the use of the cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the operation of the site. There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain in the user’s computer or mobile device for different lengths of time: session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a predetermined expiry data. In accordance with the current regulations in Italy, explicit consent for the use of cookies is not always requested. In particular, this consent is not requested for the use of “technical cookies", that is, those used only to carry out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these are cookies which are essential for operation of the site or necessary to carry out activities requested by the user. Amongst the technical cookies, which do not require explicit consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (ref. Legislation Simplified Arrangements to Provide Information and Obtain Consent Regarding Cookies of 8 May 2014, hereafter referred to as “Legislation") also includes:
- “analytics cookies" where they are used directly by the site controller to collect information, in an aggregate manner, on the number of users and on how they visit the site;
- browsing or session cookies (for authentication);
- functional cookies, which allow browsing by the user according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided. On the other hand, prior consent by the user is required for the use of “profiling cookies", that is, those cookies aimed at creating profiles relative to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with preferences shown by the user whilst browsing.
