In any case, if you wish, you can disable the Cookies on your browser, as indicated under point 8 below.
1 Standards of reference
The standard of reference is the following provision:
This is an Information Note addressed, in compliance with (EU) Regulation 2016/679 (the GDPR), to those who visit our website.
We invite you to read this Policy carefully.
2 Preliminary considerations
Cookies are small strings of text that the websites visited by the user send to their terminals (usually to the browser), where they are saved to then be transmitted to the same sites the next time they are visited by the same user. When navigating on a website, the user may also see cookies on the screen that come from different websites or servers ( “third parties”) and on which certain elements reside (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains, etc.) that are present on the site that you are visiting.
There are usually a great many cookies in users’ browsers, which at times persist for a considerable length of time; they are used for various purposes: digital authentication, session monitoring, the memorisation of information on specific configurations regarding the users who access the server, etc.
For the correct management of such devices, it is necessary to distinguish them since they do not have technical features that differentiate them one from another precisely according to the purposes of the subject that uses them.
To this regard, and for the purposes of this provision, we mention two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “proliferation” cookies.
3 Technical cookies
Technical cookies are those used only for the transmission of a communication via an electronic communication network, or strictly to the extent necessary to the supplier of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or the user, to provide that service.
They are not used for other purposes and they are usually installed directly by the website holder or manager. They can be: navigation cookies or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or for the authentication of credentials for access to reserved areas); analytic cookies, which are similar to technical cookies, are used directly by the site manager to obtain information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they use the website; or function cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (such as language or products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service offered by the website.
4 Profile cookies
Profile cookies have the purpose of creating user profiles; they are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when navigating on the web. Because these devices can be particularly invasive within the user's private life, European and Italian law requires the user to be adequately informed of their use and to express his/her valid consent.
This website uses only “technical” or “analytic” cookies.
The “technical” cookies are used for the correct functioning of the connection (e.g. to scroll from page to page and for the management of possible links to the different servers used).
This site uses the functions offered by the Google Analytics service. Google Analytics uses its own cookies to collect and analyse information, in an anonymous form, on the behaviour of website users. The information (including the user's IP address) is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to draft reports on internal use, regarding the activities carried out on our website. Google does not associate the IP address to any other data in its possession, nor does it seek to associate an IP address with a user's identity.
6 “Proliferation” and/or “third party” cookies
This site does not use “proliferation” cookies of users who navigate on the site.
8 Disabling cookies
The predefined settings of the most commonly used browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) accept cookies, but this setting can be changed by the user at any moment. This is true for both PCs and for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones: it is a widespread and generally supported function.
Therefore, cookies can easily be deactivated or disabled by going to the options or preferences of the browser used. Generally only third-party cookies can be blocked. These options are generally effective only for the specific browser and on the specific device, unless there are options available to automatically transfer preferences to other devices. The specific instructions can be found on the browser's own options page or help page. However, if technical cookies are disabled, this can have an effect on the complete and/or correct functioning of the various websites, including this site.
