Cookies Policy

Cookies are text files that are stored locally in the temporary folder of your browser for varying periods of time depending on the need, generally ranging from a few hours to several years, with the exception of profiling cookies whose maximum duration is 365 calendar days. Cookies can be used to record information about your preferences and other technical data on a semi-permanent basis, allowing you to navigate and use the site more easily.

Types of cookies

Cookies are divided into two families:

  • Proprietary cookies: installed by the owner or manager of the site. The responsibility and management of the cookies is assumed directly by the owner.
  • Third-party cookies: these are generated and managed by managers outside the site visited by the user. The responsibility for and management of these cookies lies with their respective owners and operators, who must provide appropriate opt-out mechanisms in their privacy notices.

The following types of cookies belong to these families:

Technical, session and analytical cookies

These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site and make it possible to manage login operations, record configuration preferences or integrate plug-ins necessary to display certain content. Cookies used for statistical and performance analysis are also considered technical cookies, as long as they are configured to collect data in aggregate and anonymous form.

Traffic and performance analysis cookies

These cookies allow us to know how visitors use a site, what content they access and what geographic regions they come from so that we can evaluate and improve the operation of the site. These cookies are subject to the users' consent and refusal can be made directly to their operators.

Profiling cookies for marketing and advertising purposes

These are cookies used to deliver advertising content within a website or application. These cookies are used, for example, to track the location of the advertisement and see if a user has already seen the advertisement or to follow the user as they navigate, to profile the user and present advertisements related to personal interests and socio-demographics.

Widgets and other interconnection tools with external sites and functionalities

These are cookies that are often associated with a graphical element of the site, such as an action button or a specific logo (e.g. the Facebook "like" button), and are used to integrate the functionality of other sites into the one you are browsing. These cookies are the responsibility of their operators and you can object to their use directly on the operator's information pages.

Tracking pixels or web beacons

These are application code (scripts) and/or images that do not interfere with the aesthetics of the site but allow a third party to track traffic patterns. For example, they are used by advertisers to independently measure the performance of an advertising campaign and directly collect information that is not otherwise available. These cookies are also subject to the user's consent and it is possible to opt out of them within the information of the respective operators.

Usability tools

These are functionalities written in application code, which allow the site operator to analyse the way users interact with the content and functionality in order to verify the ease of use, the quality of the design and implement improvements. These scripts are configured not to capture elements typed by the user that would undermine the user's privacy and are subject to explicit consent. The refusal of consent, when present on the pages of this site, is handled directly by the Owner.
