1. General information on Cookies
What are cookies
Cookies are strings of small codes that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.), where they are stored before being re-transmitted when needed or on subsequent accesses by the same user.
Why they are useful
The classification of cookies
Cookies are classified into different types: in relation to the duration, the cookie can be a session, that is automatically deleted when the browser is closed, or persistent, i.e. active until its expiration date or its cancellation by the user. With relation to the origin, the cookie can be first party, i.e. sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting, or third party, that is sent to the browser from other sites and not from the site you are visiting.
In relation to the purposes, the cookie can be technical or profiling. This classification, for clarity and importance, deserves a more in-depth analysis.
The technical cookie improves the user’s browsing experience. In fact, without the use of technical cookies, some operations would be very complex or impossible to perform. These cookies – which may be first and third-party cookies, as permanent sessions – do not require prior consent from the user for their installation.
Technical cookies are “strictly necessary” when they allow you to effectively browse the website and to take advantage of its essential features, such as allowing you to perform computer authentication or the storage of previous actions. By blocking the use of these cookies, the user’s browsing experience may be compromised.
On the other hand, technical cookies are “functional” when they allow to improve the browsing experience by memorizing the preferences expressed by the user, such as language, name, place. By blocking these cookies, the browsing experience will not be compromised, but the user will not be able to use these useful services.
Technical cookies are “analytical” when they allow you to gather information on how users interact with the site, analyzing the number of pages visited, the time spent on the website, the most visited pages and any other history that emerged during navigation, such as any errors from the page visited. These cookies allow the owner of the website to obtain statistical data relating to navigation and improve the services offered to the user. Analytical cookies are technical in nature – not of profiling – only when the site owner has adopted appropriate tools to reduce the identifying power of the analytical cookies used, by masking significant portions of the IP address.
For the installation of technical cookies, it is not necessary to obtain prior consent from the user, therefore – if the website uses only technical cookies – the data controller is not required to obtain consent through the cookie banner. The detailed information (that the user is reading right now) is mandatory.
The profiling cookies, on the other hand, are activated only after the user has given their consent. The consent is granted by clicking “OK” (or “continue”, etc.) on the banner on the homepage or on another page of the same site. Profiling cookies are used to improve the services offered and to select and send advertising based on preferences and tastes expressed by the user while browsing. The use of profiling cookies for sending targeted advertising does not imply the display of more advertisements or the browsing experience will be hindered. In fact, with the deactivation of profiling cookies, the user will display, in place of advertisements in line with his interests, exclusively generic advertising. The statistical and analytical third-party cookies are profiling, without IP masking and without data crossing. Finally, they are profilings of promotional cookies, of advertising, of tracking or conversions.
2. How to select or disable cookies
Except for the prior consent of the user in the case of installation of profiling cookies, most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. By changing the settings of your browser, cookies may be limited or blocked. To manage cookies, refer to the instruction manual or to the instructions provided by your browser by following the following paths (relative to the most common browsers):

- Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=it
- Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/it/kb/Eliminare%20i%20cookie
If the user uses multiple browsers, the procedure for deleting cookies must be carried out for each of them. If the user uses different devices (such as smartphones or tablets), for the uninstallation of cookies you will need to refer to the instruction manual of your device. It should be noted that if you choose to block the receipt of cookies this may compromise or prevent the proper functioning of the website as some cookies are strictly necessary for navigation.
3. Cookies used on the website. How to manage third-party cookies

2) below are a list of cookies – or similar systems for features – of third parties used on this website. For the management and deactivation of these cookies and other systems it is necessary to access the information and consent forms of said third parties, by clicking on the links indicated below.
The website uses Google Analytics for the installation of analytical technical cookies on the user’s terminal. The Website Owner has adopted appropriate tools to reduce the identifying power of the analytical cookies used, by masking significant portions of the IP address. The data generated by Google Analytics are stored according to the terms indicated in the information available at the following address: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2838718
The privacy statement of Google Inc. can be found at the following address: http://www.google.it/intl/it/policies/privacy/
The user can disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out add-on provided on his browser at the following address: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
List of analytical technical cookies installed on this website:
- _ga (term of cookie duration: two years)
- _gat (term of cookie duration: session)
- _gid (term of cookie duration: 1 day)
By blocking these cookies, the user’s browsing experience will not be compromised: it is however advisable to point out that the statistical data collected anonymously through these technical cookies are used by the Data Controller to improve their services to the user.
The Facebook Pixel is a tool for collecting statistical data, which serves primarily to monitor how the site is interacting with the user (how many times a particular page is visited, the number of accesses). It is a tool that allows the Data Controller to measure the effectiveness of its advertising, as Pixel allows interpretations of the actions that users perform on the website. For example, when the user visits this site and takes an action, Pixel records such behaviour and the Data Controller may “reach” the user using the Facebook listings.
The user data that are recorded by Pixel, to be then transmitted to Facebook, are the reference URL, the browser information and the Facebook user ID. Personalized data could be transmitted, but no confidential information related to the individual.
In essence, through Pixel, the Data Controller makes sure to show their adverts to the right people, can create groups of public to allocate the adverts, can take advantage of the advertising tools of Facebook. The user, however, through Pixel of Facebook will receive advertising communications in line with their tastes and interests.
If the user wants to prevent the storage of their data, before visiting this website, they will have to log into their Facebook account to proceed with the disconnection from the same. In the event that the user has already logged in to this site without the previous disconnection procedure, below are links to the Privacy Information of the third party for the management of their data:https://www.facebook.com/about/basics/it as well as https://www.facebook.com/help/cookies/.
Facebook Pixels falls into the category of profiling systems, as they allow the storage of the tastes and interests of the user, who can receive targeted advertising.
The deactivation of these systems will not compromise the user’s browsing experience, but the user will no longer be able to receive advertisements in line with his interests and tastes.
Social Network Icon
On the pages of the website there are some Social Network buttons (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter). These are the social network icons that serve to indicate the presence of our company on a specific platform. These buttons do not issue profiling cookies. In any case, if you would like to find out how these Social Networks manage your data, refer to the next point.
Social Sharing Button
On the pages of the website buttons and widgets of social networks may be present (for example of Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin) to facilitate interaction with social platforms and the sharing of content directly from the pages of this website.
The use of these systems involves the release of third-party profiling cookies.
The Data Controller uses the Social Sharing Button exclusively to provide an additional service to the user, so does not use the information collected for other purposes. However, through the sharing buttons the site owner provides information on the user to the third party who provided the service. The third party may combine the information collected with other information already available as it is provided directly by the user or collected on the basis of the use made by the user of the services offered by the third party.
As mentioned, if the user wanted to prevent the storage of their data, they must first access their personal account of the social network (the Privacy Section) and then proceed to disconnect from it. All this should be done before visiting this website.
In any case, the web addresses of the privacy information for the management of cookies are reported below.
Regarding “Facebook”: https://www.facebook.com/about/basics/it as well as https://www.facebook.com/help/cookies/
The user should click the following address preceding the management or deactivation of Facebook cookies:
Regarding “Linkedin”: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?_l=it_IT
Regarding “Twitter”: https://twitter.com/it/privacy
Blocking these cookies will not compromise the browsing experience, but there will be less service for the user who will no longer be able to share information directly from this page of the site.
