1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his/her device (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being retransmitted to the same websites when the user accesses them again.

b) based on how much time they remain active:

(i) session cookies: these cookies store the necessary information during the browsing session and are deleted automatically after the session expires, or when the browser is closed;

(ii) persistent cookies: they are stored on the user’s hard-disk and the Website reads them every time the user makes a new visit. A persistent cookie has a preset expiry date. The cookie will stop working after this date.

c) based on the purposes:

some are necessary to enable you to browse the Website and take advantage of its features (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether or not in aggregate form, about the number of users accessing the Website and how the Website is used (so-called tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to trace your consumer profile and display advertisements on the Website that may be of interest to you, as they are consistent with your tastes and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).

Technical cookies, analytics cookies are used on the Website.

Technical cookies are those we use for the sole purpose of enabling you to visit and enjoy the Website.

They can be further divided into:

  • browsing cookies: they ensure normal navigation and use of the Website, enabling, for example, a purchase to be made or authentication to access restricted areas. These are normally session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser;
  • functionality cookies: they allow you to browse according to a set of selected criteria (e.g. language or country of origin) in order to improve the service provided on the Website. These are persistent cookies, which remain on your computer after you close your browser until the expiry date set for each cookie (typically two months to two years) or until you delete them.

Technical cookies are not used for any further purposes and are installed directly by us.

Those third-party analytics cookies are installed on the Website only with your prior consent, because they are not anonymized, as third parties can access disaggregated analytics data at the IP address level (in other words, through such cookies, the third parties could theoretically trace your identity through your IP address).

Obviously, you can freely decide to block the installation of analytics cookies at any time, and, in such case, the possibility to visit the Website or benefit of its contents will not be jeopardized in any manner whatsoever.
