Cookie Policy



Cookies are text files containing minimal information that are sent to your browser and stored on your computer, cell phone or other device every time you visit a website. At each link, the cookie sends the information back to the referring site.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and they can remain on the user's computer for different periods of time: cookies can be qualified as persistent if they remain on the user's equipment until they expire, unless the user deletes them directly, or as session cookies if they are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Cookies may also be first party cookies or third party cookies if the cookies are served by sites or web servers other than the site visited by the user.

Under applicable law, the use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, "technical cookies" do not usually require such consent, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these cookies are indispensable for the functioning of the site or necessary to carry out activities requested by the user. For "profiling cookies", on the other hand, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles of the user and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same as part of web browsing, the user's prior consent is usually required, depending on the applicable legislation.
