Full policy on Cookies


Cookies are portions of code saved on users’ PCs on the browser used, so as to ensure that the website operates optimally, in accordance with the purposes described in the policy. Some cookies have purposes that may require explicit consent from the user. Cookies, usually present on the browsers of users in a very high number and sometimes also being stored for quite some time, are used for different purposes: to perform computer authentications, for session monitoring, for storing information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, etc.


For the purposes of this document, two categories of cookies are identified: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

a. Technical cookies.

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “sending a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the supplier of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide that service” (c.f. Art. 122, Paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code).
They are not used for additional purposes and are usually installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. They are split into browsing cookies or session cookies, and they allow for normal browsing and use of the website (such as purchases or accesses);
cookie analytics, similar to technical cookies if used directly by the manager of the website to collect information on the number of users and on how they visit that website; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based upon a series of selected characteristics and options, such as, for example, language, in order to improve the service rendered to the same. For these cookies, the prior consent of the user is not required.

b. Profiling cookies.

Profiling cookies are used to create profiles relating to users and are used for the purpose of sending advertising messages based upon the preferences shown by users when browsing on the internet. As they are quite invasive within the private sphere of users, European and Italian regulations require users to be informed on the use of the same and to grant consent. Art. 122 of the Privacy Code refers to them and provides that “the archiving of information on the terminal device of a contracting party or user or access to information already archived is permitted only on the condition that the contracting party or user has expressed consent after having been informed by the simplified methods set out in Article 13 of the Privacy Code, Paragraph 3″.
