What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by a user send to that user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc.), where they are stored and then later sent on to the same websites when that same user visits the websites in question again.

While surfing on a website, the user may also receive on his terminal cookies from different web sites or web servers (so-called third-party cookies). This happens because at the website being visited there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, social buttons (Facebook ‘Like’ button, Google ‘+1’ button, etc.), specific links to web pages of other domains residing on servers other than that on which the required page is located. In other words, these are cookies that are set up by a website other than the one currently being visited.

Technical cookies are cookies used solely for the purpose of "transmitting a notice on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to the supplier of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or by the user to provide that service" (see Article 122, sub-section 1, of Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/03).

Profiling cookies are used to create profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while surfing the net. Article 122 of Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/03 refers to these cookies when it states that "Storing information in the terminal of a contracting party or of a user or accessing information already stored is permitted only when the contracting party or user has expressed consent after being informed in accordance with the simplified procedure referred to in Article 13, sub-section 3 (Article 122, sub-section 1, of Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/03)".



The Website uses technical cookies for which no consent by the party concerned is required for the following purposes: to check the Javascript functions of the user’s browser, to facilitate surfing through web pages containing fact sheets or forms, remembering preferences with regard to the use of cookies.

The website uses third-party cookie analytics, which are assimilated to technical cookies in that suitable instruments have been used to reduce their identifying power (by masking significant portions of the IP address) and the third party undertakes to use them only for providing the service, to keep them separately and not to “enrich” them or to “cross-reference” them with other information at their disposal.

In particular, the website exploits the Google Analytics service, which uses cookies to enable aggregate statistical analysis concerning use of the website being visited.

To read the “Google Analytics Terms of Service”, which also address the privacy policy of Google Inc., the independent Controller of the processing of the data relating to the Google Analytics service, please refer to the following page:
