COOKIES POLICY

Pursuant to the measures issued by the Italian Data Protection Authority on 08 May 2014 “Simplified Arrangements to Provide Information and Obtain Consent Regarding Cookies”, we wish to inform users of the following.

General information regarding cookies
When you access our site, our server may set or read cookies and/or other types of identifiers relating to the browser and/or the device you are using.
A cookie is a small text file which is stored on the computer of a visitor to a website in order to record some information relating to the visit, as well as to allow the user to be recognised on subsequent visits. Device identifiers, on the other hand, are generated by collecting and processing certain information such as the visitor’s IP address and/or user agent (browser version, operating system type and version) or other device characteristics, always with the purpose of connecting some information to a specific user.
A website can send a cookie to the browser only if its preferences have been configured to allow this. It is important to know that a browser allows a given website to access only those cookies sent by the same website, and not those set by other websites: there is no risk to your privacy in this sense.

Practices relating to cookies and other similar technologies
Our site may use cookies and other types of identifiers for a series of reasons, including:

  • allowing access to restricted areas of the site accessible only following authentication (in this case cookies are known as “technical cookies” and are used to keep the browsing session open and/or facilitate subsequent access from the same device);
  • keep track of the preferences of the user while they are browsing the site and/or services incorporated within or connected to it;
  • serve advertising and/or content relevant to the visitors’ interests (third-party cookies only);
  • generate statistical analyses (analytics) relating to the use of the site and/or services incorporated within it;
  • conduct research with the goal of improving the content, products and service.

This site does not use any profiling cookies directly: the only cookies generated and managed directly by the site are those known as technical cookies (used purely and exclusively to provide the services offered in a correct manner), and, in an extremely limited manner, analytics cookies (which are used to count the number of page visits and/or for other statistical purposes). Nevertheless, we inform users that profiling cookies may be generated via the pages of our website (see following section).

Third-Party Cookies
This site uses third-party services on its pages which could set and use their own cookies and/or similar technologies. The use of these cookies and other similar technologies by the aforementioned companies is regulated by the privacy policies of these companies and not by this site’s own privacy policy.
Below you will find a list, which may not be exhaustive, of some of the companies which may use cookies while you are browsing this site:

Deactivating Cookies
You can configure your browser to accept or reject all cookies or particular types of cookies (for example third-party cookies, or you can choose to be notified each time before a cookie is stored on your computer.
It is important to be aware that rejecting all cookies may prevent you making use of the products and services offered by this site which require you to access areas restricted to registered users by entering a username and password. Indeed, all these services require cookies in order to function correctly, and as a result blocking cookies would make it impossible to use them.
