This website normally uses technical and session cookies, for normal provision of its own services.
The user can deny their own consent to the use of the cookie, also preliminary disabling the function of their own browser.
Disactivation of the cookie can influence your navigation inside the website, compromising some functionality of our services.
These tracking tools are strictly necessary to ensure the functioning and provision of the service you have requested from us and, therefore, do not require your consent.
Preference cookies allow the website to store information that affects its behavior or appearance, such as your preferred language or the location in which you are.
Statistics help website owners to understand how visitors interact with sites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors on websites. The purpose is to present advertisements that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and therefore of greater value for third-party publishers and advertisers.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user's terminal equipment (usually to the user's browser) by visited websites; they are stored in the user's terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's subsequent visits to those websites.
The Legislator provided for the obligation to obtain the users' prior informed consent to the installation of cookies for purposes other than those of a merely technical nature – pursuant to EU directive 2009/136 (see Section 1(5), letter a), of legislative decree No. 69 of 28 May 2012, which amended Section 122 of the Code).
From this standpoint, cookies may be distinguished into two major groups: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies.
Furthermone, a user may happen to receive cookies from other websites or web servers, which are the so-called "third party" cookies.
Technical cookies are those used exclusively with a view to "carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service." (see Section 122(1) of the Code).
They can be grouped into:
a) browsing or session cookies, which allow users to navigate and use a website (e.g. to purchase items online or authenticate themselves to access certain sections);
b) analytics cookies, which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website.
Users' prior consent is not necessary to install these cookies, whilst information under Section 13 of the code has to be provided in the manner considered to be most appropriate by the website manager.
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles. They are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation.
This website does not use these cookies.
Visiting a website you may receive cookies from the site that is visited ("owners"), both from websites maintained by other organizations ("third parties"). A significant example is represented by the presence of "social plugins" for Facebook, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn.
These are parts of the page visited, generated directly by these sites, and built-in page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by "third parties" is governed by their own information: please refer to these documents. To ensure more transparency and comfort, we have reported web addresses of some papers and their own procedures for handling cookies below.
Most browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. If you do not wish to receive any type of cookie in your system, whether from this website or from others, you can increase the privacy protection level of your browser through the appropriate function.
