Information on Cookies

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that contain small amounts of information and are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the website they came from on each future visit, or even to another website that recognises the cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow websites to recognise individual users' devices (such as passwords, the language chosen, font size, other display settings). Cookies thus allow a website to be adapted to your interests so that they do not have to be re-entered each time. Cookies are therefore used to perform computer authentications, monitor visits and observe the behaviour of users on a website. They may also include a unique identifier code that tracks users' navigation within the website for statistical or advertising purposes. While navigating the website, you may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers on your computer or mobile device (see 'Third-party cookies'). Some functionalities might not work or not work properly without cookies, so in certain cases they are technically necessary for the proper functioning of the website.

Under current legislation in Italy, explicit consent is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, the so-called 'technical' cookies do not require it, for example to transmit a message through an electronic communication network, or to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. They are, in other words, indispensable cookies for the proper functioning of the site or for activities requested by the user.

  • "Analytics cookies", used directly by the site operator to collect information regarding the number and behaviour of users of this very website.

For cookies oriented to the creation of user profiles for the creation of advertising messages, the prior consent of the user is required and is carried out in accordance with his preferences, which can be identified from the navigation.
