Cookies basic information

What are Cookies?
Cookies are small bits of information that are stored in the browser of your computer, tablet, or Smartphone when you visit our web site. This information facilitates and personalises your browsing of web sites.
What do Cookies do?
Cookies are tools used by web sites to enhance one’s browsing and to help webs see which information is most useful and/or interesting for each user. They do not personally identify the user and they pose no threat to your computer or mobile device. Cookies are neither viruses nor spyware. When you browse our web site, you do so wholly anonymously: we never know your name, address, or telephone number unless you choose to provide us with such information.
It is you the user who decides whether to allow cookies or not. If you decide not to allow them, you can block them by making the appropriate choices in your browser (we shall tell you later how you can do so).
How long do Cookies stay active on the user’s computer?
There are two kinds of cookies:

  • Session Cookies. These expire when the user leaves the web site or closes the browser.
  • Permanent Cookies. These expire when the purpose for which they were added to the web has been met or when the user decides to manually delete them.

The use of Cookies on our web site
Cookies are small text files that are usually encrypted. They allow the hosting web server to store information in the user’s computer or other device when the user visits the web site. This stored information can be read by the cookie to identify the user and to establish his/her browsing preferences and configuration.
The main kinds of cookies are as follows:

    • Technical Cookies

    These cookies let users browse the web site, platform, or application, using various options or services — for instance, for controlling data traffic and communication, identifying the session, getting access to restricted sections, recalling which items make up a request or order, applying for entry to or participation in an event, using secure elements during browsing, storing content for the dissemination of video or sound, and sharing content through social networks.

    • Personalisation Cookies:

    These cookies let the user access the service with some of the more general features being pre-defined depending on criteria determined by the user’s device, for example, language, type of browser accessing the service, regional configuration for the location from which the service is accessed, and so on.

    • Analysis Cookies:

    These cookies are processed by us or by Third Parties. They let us quantify the number of users and thus carry out statistical measurements and analysis of how the use made of the services we offer. For these purposes, we analyse browsing of our web site with a view to improving our supply of services and/or products.

    • Advertising Cookies:

    These cookies help us optimise our management of the advertising our editor has included on a web page, application, or platform supplying requested services. Such management is based on criteria such as the published content and the frequency with which advertisements are shown.

    • Behavioural Advertising Cookies:

    These cookies are processed by us or by Third Parties. They let us manage the supply of advertising slots on our web site more efficiently, matching advertising content with the kind of service requested or with the use made of a given web page.
