Cookies are small strings of text that a website sends to your terminal, where it is stored before being transmitted back to the same site during the next visit of the same user.
Such information may concern the user or the access device to internet (computer, phone or tablet) and are primarily used to adapt the function of the site to the user's expectations, offering a more personalized browsing experience and memorizing the choices made previously.
Cookies are used for different purposes: running computer authentication, session tracking, storing information about specific configurations of users accessing the server and so on.
Technical Cookies are ones used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary by the provider of the service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service" (Art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 (the so-called Privacy Code). These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site; without these cookies we cannot provide the services for which the user accesses the site. Technical Cookies are not used for other purposes and are usually installed by the owner or operator of the site or by third parties.
Technical Cookies are split into:
Navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authentication to gain access to restricted areas);
Analytics cookies, similar to Technical Cookies used exclusively to collect information, in aggregate form, about the number of users and how they visit the site. These cookies allow us to know how visitors use the site, in order to be able to evaluate and improve operations. For example, they let you know which pages are most visited. They take into account, among other things, the number of visitors and time spent on the site by users. In this way we collect information on the quality of the navigation offered. All information collected by these cookies is anonymous and not linked to personal information;
Functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service offered. The site does not use profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles for the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user navigating the internet.
Third-party cookies are present on the site. During the navigation on the site, the user can also receive on its terminal cookies that are sent to or from websites other than our own server (so-called third-party cookies), which can consist in some elements (e.g.: images, maps, sounds, links to specific pages in other domains) displayed on the same site that they are visiting.
