Cookies and online trackers

This cookie policy should be understood as an integral part of the Site’s Privacy Policy.

  1. Definitions, characteristics, and enforcement of the regulation

Cookies are small text files that sites visited by users send and store on their computers or mobile devices, only to be transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit. It is precisely because of cookies that a site remembers users’ actions and preferences (such as, for example, login details, language choice, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when users visit said site again or navigate from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site and may also contain a unique identifier code that allows tracking of the user’s navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. In the course of browsing a site, users may also receive on their computer or mobile device cookies from sites or web servers other than the one they are visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies). Some operations could not be accomplished without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the very operation of the site.

Under current Italian law, the use of cookies does not always require the user’s express consent. In particular, “technical cookies”, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not require such consent. These are, in other words, cookies that are indispensable for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

Among technical/strictly necessary cookies, which therefore do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority also includes: – first-party and third-party “analytics cookies” (or also called “performance” cookies), if tools are adopted to reduce the identifying power of the cookies and the third party does not cross-reference the information collected with others it already has, used directly by the operator of the Site to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself; – navigation or session cookies (to authenticate); – functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected features and advanced customizations (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same. For “profiling cookies”, vice versa, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing, as well as for performance cookies, if no tools are adopted to reduce the identifying power of the cookies and the third party crosses.
