There are two categories of cookies:
- Technical cookies: necessary for the proper operation of a website and for browsing it by the user. Without them, users may not be able to display the pages properly or use certain services.
- Profile creation cookies: are used to create user profiles to send promotional messages according to the user’s preferences when browsing.
Cookies, either “technical” or “profile creation”, can also be classified as:
- “session” cookies, which are deleted immediately after closing the browser;
- “Permanent” cookies, which remain in the browser for a certain period of time. These cookies are used, for example, to identify the device connected to a website, facilitating user authentication procedures;
- “Privately owned” cookies, which are created and controlled directly by the operator of the website on which the user is browsing;
- third-party cookies, which are created and controlled by sites other than the operator of the site on which the user is browsing.
The Website uses “technical” cookies and in particular the following types of cookies:
- i) privately owned cookies, session cookies or permanent cookies, which are necessary for browsing the Website, for purposes of internal security and system management;
- ii) third-party cookies, permanent cookies, used by the Website to send statistical information to Google Analytics, through which the Company may perform statistical analysis of access / visits to the Website. The cookies used serve exclusively statistical purposes and collect information in aggregate form.
Using two cookies, the permanent cookies and the session cookies (which expire at the end of the browser), Google Analytics also saves a registry with the start and end times of site visits.
You can prevent Google from collecting data through cookies and subsequent data processing by uploading and installing the browser add-on from the following address: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it
You can choose which cookies to give your consent for. In the case of third-party cookies, users provide or refuse to provide their consent directly to the holder of that cookie, to which the Company simply refers:
Most third-party cookies on the site can be disabled by users in their own browser or by visiting the websites of their operators directly using the links listed in the table below. In any case, we point out that disabling cookies can affect your ability to use the Website and / or make the most of all available features and services.
