Cookies are small text files sent to the user by websites visited. They are stored on the computer’s hard disk, thus allowing the website to recognize users and to store certain information about them, in order to enable or improve service.
There are various types of cookies. Some are necessary for navigating the Website; others have various purposes such as ensuring internal security, carrying out system administration tasks, performing statistical analysis, determining which sections of the Website users are most interested in or personalizing the user’s visit to the Website.
The Website uses technical cookies, not for profiling. The above refers to access both via the user’s computer and via any other device that the user may use to connect to the Website.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a message over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an electronic service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service.
They are not used for other purposes and are normally placed directly by the owner or operator of the website.
They include: navigation cookies or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (for example by enabling purchases, user authentication and access to restricted areas); analytical cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the website operator to collect aggregate information on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow users to navigate using a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve service for users.
Disabling cookies may limit your ability to use the Website and make it impossible to take full advantage of the Website’s features and services. For purposes of deciding which ones to accept or reject, a description of the cookies used on the Website is shown below.
Types of cookies used
First party cookies:
First party cookies (i.e., cookies that belong to the website of the publisher that created them) are set up by the website visited by the user (the website whose address appears in the URL window). The use of such cookies allows us to run the site efficiently and to track visitor behaviour patterns.
Third party cookies:
Third party cookies are set up by a domain other than the one visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a different company sends the information using that site, third party cookies are being used.
