The present document provides information on the typologies, characteristics and purposes of the cookies installed by the Site and on the relative management by the users.
What are cookies
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to said websites at the next visit of the same user. When browsing a website, the user can also receive cookies from different websites or web servers on his terminal (so-called "third-party cookies"); this happens because on the website visited there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these are those cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting.
Therefore, cookies are present in large numbers in each user's browser, and often they may be set to have a long life span. Cookies may serve several different purposes: IT authentication, monitoring sessions, storing specific pieces of information on user settings/preferences for a given server, etc...
Types of cookies
Cookies may be distinguished into two major groups: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
a. Technical cookies
Section 122, Part 1, D. Lgs. 196/2003 of the Italian Data Protection Code defines technical cookies as cookies set "for the sole purpose of carrying out or facilitating the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order to provide an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user." Technical cookies are not used for other purposes and are usually set directly by the web site's owner or manager. They may be: browsing (or session) cookies, meant to ensure ordinary web browsing and web site fruition (for instance, they make it possible to perform web purchases or to log in and access private areas); "analytics" cookies may be considered technical cookies provided they are used directly by the site manager to gather aggregate data about user numbers and browsing behaviour; "functional" cookies, enabling the user to browse the site in accordance with a set of preferences (such as the language, or products selected for purchase), thus ensuring a smoother user experience.
b. Profiling cookies
Profiling cookies are intended to build user profiles and are widely used to deliver advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user when surfing the Web.
Cookies from third parties
During navigation, the user can also receive cookies that are sent by websites or web servers that belong to "third parties", on the basis of the different subject that installs cookies on terminal of the user.
These are first-party cookies, if the person who sends the cookies is the same site manager that user is visiting and which we might call "Publisher"; these are "third-party cookies", if the person who installs the cookies is an entity other than publisher and performs the publication via the web site of the first.
- First-party, if they are created and are readable by the web site that created them. - Third-party, if they are created and are readable by subject and external domains to your web site you are viewing; the data collected is kept at the third party. The management of the information collected by "third parties" is regulated by the relative policies; please refer to it.
This Website has no control over "third-party" cookies, which are entirely managed by the third parties.
