X.1. Extended Cookie Policy::

This site uses technology to collect information which helps improve your online experience.

This policy refers to the use of cookies and the methods used to manage them.

We reserve the right to modify this policy at any time. Any change in this policy will take effect as of the date of publication on the Site. Cookies are small text files which websites send to the visitor’s terminal device (usually to the browser), where they are stored in order to be sent back to the same sites on the next visit by the same user. When browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies sent by different websites or servers (“third-party” cookies), on which certain elements (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages on other domains) present on the site they are visiting are stored.

Cookies, which are usually stored in large numbers by users’ browsers, and are sometimes set to persist for a long time, are used for different purposes: authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations relating to users accessing the server etc. In order to correctly regulate these files, it is necessary to distinguish between them given that there are no technical characteristics which differentiate them from each other specifically on the basis of the purposes of those using them.

FIRST-PARTY, technical (session) persistent cookies
Technical cookies are those used solely to “carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to the provider of a web service explicitly requested by the user to supply said service”. They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the Controller or the webmaster. They can be further divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal browsing and use of the website (for example allowing the user to make a purchase or log in to restricted areas of the site).

FIRST-PARTY, analytics cookies
Analytics cookies allow detailed statistics to be compiled on visitors to the website, such as, for example, page views for specific pages, the number of visitors, the time spent on the site by visitors, and how they arrived at the site. Analytics cookies are equivalent to technical cookies where used directly by the site manager to gather aggregate information on the number of users and on how they visit the site itself.

FIRST-PARTY, profiling cookies
Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user when browsing the web. This site can share this information with other parties such as, for example, advertisers. Due to the particularly invasive nature that these cookies can have in the user’s private sphere, Italian and European regulations require that you be given the possibility not to consent to the use of these cookies.

THIRD-PARTY, analytics cookies
Analytics cookies allow detailed statistics to be compiled on visitors to the website, such as, for example, page views for specific pages, the number of visitors, the time spent on the site by visitors, and how they arrived at the site.

THIRD-PARTY, profiling cookies
In order to provide you with further functions and services within this site, we work with third parties, who may use their cookies – in an independent manner which we cannot directly control – to gather information on your activities while browsing the pages of this site. This information may be used to show you advertising in line with your interests, on the basis of content you have visited, or to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. These cookies may be contained in various elements present on the website, such as advertising banners, images, videos, etc. An example is the presence of so-called “social media plugins” or “social media share buttons” for the main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn) for the purpose of sharing the website content on said social media networks. The use of the data gathered by third-party cookies, over which we do not exercise any kind of control, is regulated by the corresponding policies, to which you should make reference.
