What are cookies?

Cookies are text and number files that are installed in the memory of the device (pc, smartphone or tablet) while browsing a website when the User is connected to the Internet through the browser application that is installed on the device.

A very large number of cookies are usually present in Users’ browsers in very large numbers, some of which remain there for lengthy periods of time. They are used for different purposes that include, but are not limited to, performing computer authentications, monitoring sessions, storing information about specific configurations regarding the Users accessing the server, etc.
The Privacy Regulations identify the following macrocategories:

Technical cookies” are cookies that are used for navigation or provide a service requested by the User. These cookies are not used for any other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the Site. In addition, such cookies can be divided into:

  • navigation or session cookies, for normal navigation on and use of the website (for example, they allow Users to make a purchase or be authenticated in order to access restricted areas);
  • functionality cookies, which allow Users to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the m.

The prior consent of the User is not required for the installation of technical cookies;

Analytics cookies“, are used to monitor how the Site is used by Users for Site optimization purposes (number of visitors, pages visited, time spent on the Site, etc.).
In order for analytics cookies to be equated with technical cookies, it is essential to ensure that they are made and used directly by the first-party site (without the intervention of third parties) to improve its usability, and also ensure that the user cannot be identified by them. This means that the analytics cookies must not be able to act as direct and unique identifiers of Users.

In particular, in order to consider analytics cookies, including third-party cookies, as technical cookies, it is necessary to ensure that: (i) the analytics cookies are used only to produce aggregate statistics, in relation to a single site or mobile application, so as to preclude tracking of the user’s browsing behaviour using different applications or browsing different websites; (ii) at least the fourth component of the ip address is masked for third-party analytics cookies; and (iii) the third parties must not combine such analytics cookies with other processing (customer files or statistics of visits to other sites, for example) or pass them on to third parties.

The installation of analytics cookies, which are assimilated to technical cookies, does not require the prior consent of Users; however, User consent will be required when analytics cookies are not assimilated to technical cookies;

Profiling cookies” are cookies that create User profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages according to the preferences expressed by the User while surfing the web. Because of the particularly invasive nature of these devices, Privacy Regulations provide that the User be adequately informed about the use of such devices and be able to express his/her consent to their usage.

Therefore, the installation of profiling cookies requires the User’s consent, after the User has been informed about them in simple terms;

In addition, cookies may be installed by the Site visited by the User (“first-party cookies”), or they may be installed by other websites (“third-party cookies”).
Finally, in terms of time, cookies can be divided into: (i) “persistent cookies,” i.e., cookies permanently stored on the User’s device until a predetermined expiration date (minutes, days, years); (ii) “session cookies,” i.e., cookies that are automatically deleted when the browser is closed.

What cookies does the Site use and for what purposes?

When the User connects to the Site, the following cookies may be installed on the User’s device:

Technical cookies

These cookies are necessary for the operation of the Site and cannot be disabled in the Company’s systems. They are usually installed only in response to actions taken by the User that constitute a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in, or filling out forms. You can set your browser to block or provide warnings about these cookies, but in this case some parts of the Site will no longer be functional. These cookies do not store personal information.


First and third-party analytics cookies assimilated to technical cookies

Where assimilated to technical cookies, these first and third-party cookies allow the Company to count visits and traffic sources so that we can measure and improve the performance of our Site. They provide us with information about which pages are the most and least popular and how visitors move around the Site. All information collected by cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
