Type of data processed and purpose of the process


1.1 General Information on Cookies

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their terminals (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites on each subsequent visit through the same terminal. Furthermore, each site can allow the transmission of the so-called ‘third party’ cookies, i.e. those generated by websites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects present in it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains).

Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies, i.e. temporary cookies and are automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser, and in persistent cookies, i.e. those that remain stored on the terminal until they expire or cancellation by the user.

Cookies have different purposes, they are mainly used for the transmission of information or to provide the service requested by the user; more precisely, they allow you to enable and optimize the functioning of the website, perform computer authentication and prevent abuse, monitor sessions, improve the browsing experience of users, for example by keeping active the connection to restricted areas while browsing through the pages of the Site without the need to re-enter User-Id and password and storing specific information regarding the users themselves (including preferences, the type of browser, and computer used).

The aforementioned cookies are called ‘technical’, for their use the user’s consent is not necessary because without them some of the aforementioned operations could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure.

Otherwise, if the cookies are used for other purposes, typically for behavior analysis and sending personalized promotional-advertising messages (so-called profiling cookies) or even only to obtain, through services rendered by third parties, information in aggregate form the user’s consent is required on the number of users and on how they visit the Site (so-called analytics cookies). In fact, before sending these cookies on the terminal, in accordance with current legislation (Privacy Code and General Provision of the Guarantor of 8 May 2014), when you access the Home Page or other pages of the Site, it immediately shows in the foreground a banner with a first summary information on the use of cookies and the collection of consent, which the user can provide by continuing to browse by selecting an element below the banner or by closing the banner itself. In any case, cookies can be read or modified only by the Website that generated them; they cannot be used to retrieve any data from the user’s terminal and they cannot transmit computer viruses. Some of the functions of cookies can also be performed by other technologies; therefore, in the context of this Web Privacy Policy, the term ‘cookies’ refers to cookies and all similar technologies.
