Use of cookies


The following information is made available to the user in compliance with the provision of the Privacy Guarantor concerning the protection of personal data of 8th May 2014, entitled ‘Simplified procedures for disclosure and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies’.


Cookies are small text strings that a website can send to your device (be it a PC, notebook computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.) while browsing and that are generally stored directly in the browser used for navigation. The same website that transmitted them can then read and write to them on the same device in order to obtain various kinds of information. Each type of cookie has a well-defined role.


Esistono due macro-categorie fondamentali, con caratteristiche diverse: cookie tecnici e cookie di profilazione.

There are two main categories with different essential characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies. Technical cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the website and allow basic browsing features. Without such technical cookies, the user may not be able to view web pages correctly or use some services. For example, a particular type of technical cookie is essential in keeping the user connected throughout his/her visit to a website, another in storing language or display preferences, and so on.
Cookies can be further subdivided in:

  • Navigation cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make purchases or authenticate access to restricted areas);
  • Analytics cookies used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website.
  • Functional cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to set of selected preferences (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

Profiling cookies are a more sophisticated type of cookie. Such cookies have the task of profiling the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with preferences expressed by the user during browsing activities.

Cookies can also be subdivided in:

  • Session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed;
  • Persistent cookies, which, unlike session cookies, remain in the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device connecting to the site in order to facilitate authentication operations for the user.
  • First-party cookies, which are cookies generated and managed directly by the operator of the website the user is browsing.
  • Third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website the user is browsing (generally forming part of a contract between the owner of the website and the third party).
