Users are also invited to consult our Privacy Policy available at the following link of which this document is an integral and substantive part.


What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text strings that:

  • websites visited by the User enter into his/her browser when he/she visits a site or uses a social network with his/her personal computer, smartphone or tablet;

  • are stored by the User's browser and then transmitted back to the same sites that sent them, when the same User visits them again.

Cookies could contain various data about the User such as, for example, the name of the server from which it came or a numeric identifier-and may contain a user identification code.

Cookies contain various data about the User-such as, for example, the name of the server from which it came or a numeric identifier-and may contain a user identification code.

Cookies may remain in the User's browser for the duration of a session (i.e., until the browser used for web browsing is closed) or for undetermined periods.

In the course of browsing a site, the User may also receive cookies on his/her terminal that are sent by sites or web servers of other companies (so-called "third parties"). 

It may happen, in fact, that a web page contains cookies from other sites and/or elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than that of the site visited. Therefore, cookies can be classified as "first-party" or "third-party" depending on the website or domain from which it originates. First-party cookies are, in essence, the cookies set and/or managed by the website owner. Third-party cookies are cookies set by a domain other than the one visited by the User.

Similar technologies are tools that store data in the User's browser or device using locally shared objects (or local storage), such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. Another example of similar technology are SDKs (Software Development Kits), which are third-party software applications that publishers place on properties and send, to survey managers, the relevant census usage data.

There are different types of cookies:

There are different types of cookies:

  • Technical Cookies. Technical cookies are necessary to enable navigation on the Internet and the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, as well as to provide the User with some of the functionalities made available to him/her on the Site. Without the use of such cookies, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure. In relation to said operations, cookies, which make it possible to carry out and maintain the identification of the User as part of the online browsing session, are indispensable. Technical cookies, usually installed directly by the owner or operator of the website, can be classified into:

    • Navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, authentication to access restricted areas);

    • Analytics cookies, assimilated in terms of their legal regulation to technical cookies where used directly by the owner of the site to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself;

    • Functionality cookies, which make it possible to store information that changes the behavior or appearance of the site (preferred language, size of text and fonts, indication of the geographical area where you are). If they are blocked, the browsing experience is less functional but not compromised.

  • Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are used to track the navigation of the User on the web, study his movements and trends of web consultation, create profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc., including with regard to attitudes and preferences that he cultivates as a consumer. These cookies also make it possible to transmit to the User's terminal advertising messages in line with the preferences, already manifested by the same User, in the online navigation tracked by the sender of the cookie. In general, this is what happens, for example, when, by the mere fact of having accessed a service site, a User becomes the recipient of advertisements for products related to the type of site visited.

  • Third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are installed, through the site the User is visiting, by another site (so-called third party). These cookies may be sent to the User's browser by third-party companies directly from their sites for their own purposes including, possibly, profiling.


Cookie Choice

The installation of cookies and/or similar technologies (next referred to simply as cookies) takes place on the basis of consent i.e. a free, specific and informed manifestation of will on the part of the data subject, whereby the User expresses his or her consent to the installation or collection of data by means of the cookie. Consent must be given by means of a positive and unequivocal statement or action. The action by which the User expresses his/her consent to the installation of cookies is also known as opt-in.

Cookie used to allow the proper user navigation do not require any consent.

Cookies used for the purpose of analyzing access or visits to the website (analytics cookies) also do not require prior consent if they pursue only statistical purposes and collect information in aggregate form, provided that the information provided by the website is clear and adequate and simple ways are offered to users to object to their implantation (so-called opt-out options known as opt-outs).

About third-party cookies, User must be informed in advance about how such cookies work and how to give consent to their use. The owner of the visited site or app, however, as a technical intermediary between third parties and users, is required to include in the extended information on the processing of personal data, updated links to the information on processing (privacy policy) and the consent forms to the processing of the third parties themselves, as well as if available, links to the option to opt-out of the cookie (i.e. opt-out).
