Cookie Policy

The website uses cookies to facilitate and personalise the user’s browsing experience; by browsing the Website, the user agrees to the use of cookies in compliance with this document. This notice represents an extension of the cookie notification banner displayed when users first connect to the home page of this Website. There exist two categories of cookies:

  • technical cookies: these are necessary for correct functioning of a website and to permit browsing by the user; without these the user may not be able to visualise the pages correctly or to use some services.
  • profiling cookies: these are used for creating user profiles to send advertising messages in line with preferences shown by the user during browsing.

Cookies, whether “technical” or “profiling”, can also be classified as:

  • “session” cookies, which are deleted immediately on closing of the browser;
  • “persistent” cookies, which remain in the browser for a determinate period of time; these are used, for example, to recognise the device which connects to a website, facilitating user authentication operations;
  • “own” cookies, generated and managed directly by the operator of the website on which the user is browsing;
  • “third party” cookies, generated and operated by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing.

The Website uses “technical” cookies and in particular the following types of cookie:

  • own cookies, session or persistent, necessary to allow browsing on the Website, for the purpose of internal security and systems administration;
  • third party cookies, session and persistent, required to enable the user to view multimedia contents available on the Website, as for example images and video;
  • own cookies, persistent and profiling used by Website to send statistical information to Google Analytics, by way of which the Company can perform statistical analysis of access/visits to the Website. By way of two cookies, one persistent and the other session (expiring on closure of the browser), Google Analytics also saves a register with times of commencement of visits to the Website and exit from same. Google Analytics also provides the Company with anonymous information such as age group, gender, geographical area from which the user connects, last site visited before connecting to the Site and others, which the Company may use for statistical purposes and/or to design advertising campaigns (never directed to a single user, but to “clusters”, or macro-categories, e.g. “male users, located in northern Italy, age group 25-30 years”). It is possible to prevent Google from taking the data by way of the cookies and the subsequent formulation of the data by downloading and installing the plug-in for browser from the following address: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB. Please note that Google does not make available to the Company identifying data of visitors to the Site, nor will the Company transmit to Google information relating to identifiable individuals; however, the Company might potentially identify the users, associating the information received from Google Analytics with others already in possession (for example, log-in information to restricted areas that may be present on the site)
  • third party cookies, persistent, used by the Website to include on its pages the buttons of some social-networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter). By selecting one of these buttons, users can publish on their own personal social network page the contents of the web page they are visiting;

You can choose to which cookies to give your consent. In the case of third party cookies, users shall provide or deny consent directly to the owner of the cookie in question, to which the Company merely refers: most third party cookies present on the website can be disabled by users on their own browser or by consulting directly the sites of the operators using the links indicated in the table below. In any event, we point out that disabling cookies could impair your ability to use the Website and/or prevent you from benefitting in full from the available functions and services.

The following table describes in detail the cookies present on the Website. The link to the privacy policy of the party which generates and manages those cookies is shown alongside each “third party cookie”:

PIXEL TAGS

The Site includes technologies such as web beacons and pixel tags operated by third party companies. Specifically, the Site includes pixel tags from the Facebook social network, whose operation is of interest to users who have a profile on that social network and have accepted the relevant conditions and privacy policy at the time of registration, to which reference should be made (see below).

Through the pixel tags in question, the Company is able to collect (only on an aggregate basis, i.e. by categories, and never on an individualised basis) some data of users who have visited the Site, such as age, gender, preferences, and other information obtained from the Facebook profile of the users themselves, as well as other navigation data. On the basis of this data, the Company carries out statistical and market surveys, and creates personalised promotional messages that the user displays when connecting to other sites, in particular when accessing their Facebook account. Please note that the Company cannot in any way: (i) identify the visitors to the Site; (ii) obtain the details of their social profile; (iii) access the contents of the profile itself.

Explanations on how Facebook users can limit the sharing of their profile data with third parties, as well as the related Privacy Policy and terms of use, can be accessed by connecting to their Facebook account, or to the following links: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/update
