Banner Cookies shown to the User at the first access
When the User accesses the Website for the first time, a specific banner is displayed through which the User can view the details of the cookies installed by the website and choose which type of Cookies they want to be installed by the Website, by simply affixing the symbol check mark. This type of choice never involves the so-called “necessary cookies”, that is the cookies that only allow the technical functioning of the Website, but only the marketing and profiling cookies. The User can modify the choice made at any time without prejudice to the treatments carried out before such modification.
What are “cookies” and what are they used for?
Cookies are information (small text strings) entered in the user’s browser when the Website is visited. They perform various and important functions within the network (execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, storing preferences, etc.). During browsing, the user may also receive cookies from different sites on his terminal (so-called “third party” cookies), set directly by the managers of said websites and used for the purposes and in the manner defined by them.
Type and list of cookies used by this website
There are different types of cookies that contain different information and perform different functions (e.g. execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of preferences for sending targeted advertising messages, etc. ). Each cookie, in turn, contains different data (eg the name of the server it comes from, a numeric identifier, etc.). Such data may remain on the user’s device for different periods of time – a browser session, a few hours, several days or for longer periods.
Technical cookies necessary for browsing: Cookies that are used to browse or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes. Technical cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the website. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and / or less secure. Therefore, technical cookies are indispensable. Technical cookies do not require the user’s consent, as they are necessary for the proper functioning of the website.
Third-party analytical cookies used as technical cookies: Third-party analytical cookies can be assimilated to technical cookies only if used for the purpose of optimizing the website by the Controller of the website itself, to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the website. When used as technical cookies and when anonymization measures prescribed by the Guarantor are adopted, analytical cookies are necessary to allow the Controller of the website to improve the functioning of the same and the user experience on the website. The user’s consent is not required, as the Data Controller has activated the IP address anonymization function and uses the data in aggregate form.
Profiling cookies: Cookies used to track the user’s browsing on the network and create profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies, advertising messages can be transmitted to the user’s terminal in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing online.
Profiling cookies are not strictly necessary for the proper functioning of the website and, therefore, the user can decide whether to install these cookies or not. For the installation of profiling cookies, the user’s consent is required, which can be expressed or revoked by the user.
The website installs the following types of cookies :

Social network buttons and widgets
Social buttons are the “buttons” on the website that depict the icons of social networks (for example, Facebook, Linkedin) and allow users who are browsing to interact directly with social platforms with a “click”.
The social buttons used by the website in the sidebar are links that refer to the Controller’s accounts on the social networks depicted. By using these buttons, third-party cookies are therefore not installed on the website. In any case, the links are shown where the user can view the privacy information relating to the management of data by the social networks to which the buttons refer:
