COOKIE POLICY

Our website uses cookies to guarantee the web pages are used correctly and to offer a better user experience. This policy provides information regarding the types of cookies used, why and how they are used, with reference to this website only.

What are cookies?
The Measure dated 8 May 2014 defines cookies as “small text files that the websites visited by a user send to the user’s terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored for retransmission to the same sites on the user’s next visit. While browsing a website, the user’s terminal may also receive cookies sent from other websites or web servers (“third-party” cookies), which may contain a number of elements (for example images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages in other domains) present on the website the user is visiting”.
Cookies may be used for a variety of purposes, such as for IT authentications, storing information regarding the configurations of the devices accessing the server, favourite websites, etc.
The various types of cookies that may be used are explained below

Types of cookies
While browsing a website, the user’s terminal may also receive cookies sent from other websites or web servers (“third-party” cookies), which may contain a number of elements present on the website the user is visiting. The following cookies may be present:
1. First-party cookies, sent directly from a website to the user’s device. This website does not use first-party profiling cookies, but only technical cookies (see below);
2. Third-party cookies, originating from a third party, but sent on our behalf. This website uses third-party cookies to facilitate analysis of our website and how it is used (as described below).
In addition, depending on the purposes for which cookies are used, they may be divided into:
1. Technical cookies: these are used to allow for the transmission of a communication on a communication network, or to provide a service specifically requested by the user. They are not used for any other purposes. Technical cookies, for which the user’s consent is not required, can be divided into:
a) Session cookies, which allow the user to use and browse the website normally (e.g. to log in and access reserved areas). The use of these cookies (which are not stored on the user’s device and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifications (composed of numbers randomly generated by the server) necessary to allow the user to browse the website safely and efficiently.
b) Analytics cookies, which are used only to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users visiting the website and how they visit it
c) Functional cookies, which allow the user to browse the website based on a series of selected criteria (such as chosen language or services subscribed to), in order to improve the service provided to the user.
2.Profiling cookies, the purpose of which is to create profiles regarding the user, which are used to send targeted promotional messages based on the preferences shown by the user while browsing the web. These cookies are used for these purposes only with the consent of the user.

How cookies are used by this website. The table below summarises how cookies are used by this website and by third parties. These uses include the use of cookies in order to:
1. continuously calculate the total number of visitors, as well as the types of browsers (e.g. Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g. Windows or Macintosh) used;
2. monitor the performance of the website, including how visitors use it, and to improve its functions.
The categories of cookies we use and how users can manage them
The types of cookies used can be classified in one of the categories shown in the table below:

Type of cookie Purpose of cookie Origin and how to block it
Cookies essential for the website (session and browsing cookies) These cookies are essential for proper browsing of the website and for the use of its functions. These cookies do not collect any personal information that can be used for marketing purposes, and they do not keep track of the websites visited. The use of these cookies (which are not stored at length on the user’s device and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifications (composed of numbers randomly generated by the server) necessary to allow the user to browse the website safely and efficiently. This category of cookies cannot be deactivated. (cookie diretti)
First-party functional cookies These cookies allow the website to remember the choices made by the user (such as username, language or geographical position), and are used to improve and personalise the website functions. The information collected by these cookies can be anonymised, and they do not keep trace of browsing activity on other websites. This category of cookies cannot be deactivated. (first-party cookies)
Analytics cookies These cookies, like cache, are set by Google Analytics and are used to collect information on how visitors use the website, including the number of visitors, the sites they come from and the pages they visit on our website.

In general, these cookies remain on the visitor’s computer until they are deleted.

Lastly, the Google Adwords/Doubleclick cookie is used to identify which keywords generate the highest number of clicks on Google and conversions to services requested. This tool indicates what happens after users click on an advertisement on Google, for example if they join a campaign.
