Extended Cookie Policy

What are cookies and what are they used for

Cookies are small text files that sites visited by users send to their terminals (usually to browsers), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit.

On the other hand, the so-called "third parties" cookies are set by a website other than the one that the user is visiting.

This is because each site may contain elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers that are different from the one of the visited site.

Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentications, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations as to how users access the server, storing of preferences, etc.

Cookies can be divided into different macro-categories based on their use and/or the subject responsible for cookie release on users' terminals.

In this sense, there is a distinction between:

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network, or to the extent that is strictly necessary for a service provider of the company to provide subscribers or users with the explicitly required information "(see art. 122, par. 1 of the Privacy Policy). These cookies are not used for other purposes and are normally installed by the owner or manager of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, that guarantee the normal standards for navigation and website use (allowing, for example, to make an order or log in to access personal areas);

Analytical cookies

Analytical cookies are similar to technical cookies when used directly by the webmaster to collect joint information on the number of users and how they visit the site;

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, selected order products) in order to improve the service provided.

Prior user consent is not necessary to install these cookies.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are designed to create user-related profiles and are used to send users advertising messages in line with their navigation preferences. Because of the substantial impact that these cookies may have on users' privacy, European and Italian legislation requires that users be adequately informed about the use of cookies and give their consent accordingly. Art. 122 of the Privacy Policy refers to cookies in that "storage of information on a contractor's or user's device or access to already stored information is only permitted when the contractor or user has given his/her consent after being informed through the simplified procedures referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3 of the Privacy Policy".

Session and Persistent Cookies

Session Cookies contain the information used in current browser session. These cookies are automatically disabled once the browser is closed. Nothing is stored on your computer after website navigation time (ASP.NET_SessionId and language). Persistent cookies are used to store the information that is used in the time between one website access and the other, or they are used for technical purposes and to improve navigation on the site. These data are for the site to register that you are already known as a user or a visitor, so they can adapt accordingly. "Persistent" cookies have a duration that is set by the website and that can vary from a few minutes to several years.

First-party and third-party cookies

Cookies can be installed on user's device by both the manager of the website the user is visiting (’First-Party Cookie’), and by third parties (’Third-Party Cookies’). The information collected through First-Party Cookies is stored by the manager of the site the user has visited, while information collected through Third Party Cookies is stored by third parties themselves. At this link www.youronlinechoices.com , you can find information on how behavioural advertising works and a lot of information about cookies and how to protect your privacy on the internet.
