A) WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and the user’s terminal (usually the browser). They are primarily used for the purpose of making the websites work and operate more efficiently, and also for providing information to the owners of the website. Cookies may be either session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies remain stored in the terminal for a short period of time and are deleted as soon as the user closes the browser. Their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow safe and efficient exploration of the site. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain stored in the user’s terminal until a set expiry date. As these are not deleted when closing the browser, they allow the choices made by the user on the website to be remembered. They also collect information about the pages of the site visited by the user, the frequency with which the site is visited and allow to identify the navigation path of users in order to improve the experience on this site. Cookies, whether session or persistent, can be either First-Party or Third-Party cookies, depending on whether the party that installs the cookies on the user’s terminal is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (First-Party cookies) or a different party (Third-Party cookies).
B) TECHNICAL COOKIES
Cookies relating to activities strictly necessary for the operation of the site and provision of service. All technical cookies do not require consent, they are therefore automatically installed following access to the site.
Technical cookies may be either session cookies or persistent cookies.
The use of so-called session cookies (which are not stored persistently on the user’s computer and disappear as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow safe and efficient exploration of the site.
Persistent cookies (which are stored persistently on the user’s computer) are sent to the server and are also available for subsequent visits by the user.
This website uses both types of cookies.
C) THIRD-PARTY COOKIES ANALYTICS
The third-party cookies on the website (Google Analytics) are used for statistical purposes; said cookies collect information that is used in aggregate form in order to monitor and analyse access to all the sections of the website. The use of Google Analytics cookies is carried out anonymously, therefore it does not allow any identification of the interested party, not even through the IP address. As clarified by the Data Protection Authority with the provision on cookies dated 8 May 2014, the use of anonymous third-party analytical cookies is comparable to the use of technical cookies, therefore the interested party’s prior consent is not necessary. In any event, the interested party may object to the use of third-party analytical cookies by way of the opt-out tool available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or through the browser.
