What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files sent to the user’s device (usually to the user’s browser) by the websites the user visits when the latter accesses such websites for the purpose of storing and transporting information. They are stored so that they can recognize that device on the next visit. On each subsequent visit, in fact, cookies are resent from the user's device back to the site.
Each cookie generally contains the name of the server from which the cookie was sent and the expiration date and a value, usually a unique number randomly generated by the computer.
First party and third party cookies
Cookies can be installed not only by the same owner of the site browsed by the user (first-party cookies), but also by a different site that installs them through the first site (third-party cookies) and is able to recognize them. This happens because on the browsed site there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that are stored on servers other than that of the browsed site.
Technical, analytical and profiling cookies
Depending on the purpose, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Technical cookies are stored for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network or as strictly necessary for the supplier of an information society service explicitly requested by subscriber or user to provide the service" (see Art. 122, paragraph 1 of Privacy Code).
These cookies allow the user to navigate the websites and use their functionality (so-called "essential" or "strictly necessary"). They are usually used to enable efficient navigation between pages, store user preferences (language, searches performed, etc.) store information about specific user configurations, perform user authentication, store items in the shopping cart during online purchases, etc.
“Statistics” or “analytical” cookies (also known as “performance cookies”) collect information about how you use a website, which pages you visited, and which links you clicked on in order to improve website functions.
Pursuant to the art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code, technical cookies do not require consent, but it should be explained to the user what they do and why they are necessary or useful.
Pursuant the Decision, analytical cookies are equivalent to technical cookies (and, therefore, users’ consent is not required) if:
- are stored directly exclusively by the owner of the visited website with the purpose to collect aggregated information on the number of users and how they visit the website, or
- created and made available by third parties if:
- used by the first party for merely statistical purposes, where the ability to identify users is reduced (for example, through hiding significant portions of the IP address) and such data are processed just for make aggregate statistics in relation to a single Site or a single mobile application (so there is no tracking of the navigation of the user on different applications or navigating different websites);
- such third parties, who provide the web measurement service, do not combine, enrich or cross-reference the data, even minimized as above, with other information available to them (e.g. customer files or statistics of visits to other sites) or transmit them to other third parties.
Profiling cookies are used to track the users’ browsing, analyze their behaviour for marketing purposes and create profiles on their interests so as to transmit targeted ads in line with the preferences expressed when browsing online. These cookies, pursuant to art. 122 of the Privacy Code, may be installed on the user´s device only if the user has given his/her consent after being informed in the simplified manner indicated in the Decision (publication on the site of a "short" notice/policy contained in a banner that appears immediately on the home page (or other page through which the user can access the site), which refers to an "extended" notice/policy, which is accessed through a clickable link by the user).
Permanent and session cookies
Based on their duration, cookies are distinguished into persistent, which remain stored, until they expire, on the user's device, subject to removal by the user, and session cookies, which are not stored persistently on the user's device and vanish when the browser is closed.

Anonymised analytical cookies
The Site uses analytical cookies created and made available by third parties to statistically analyse accesses or visits to the Site, to allow the Controller to improve its structure, navigation logic and contents and to collect information on the use of the Site.
For further details and information, you can visit the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1011397
These cookies, suitably anonymised (by masking out significant portions of the IP address), allow the collection of aggregate information on the number of users and how they visit the Site without being able to identify the individual user.
The Site uses profiling cookies created and made available by third parties through which it is possible to monitor users while they are browsing, tracing, and storing their preferences and thus creating profiles that allow personalisation of messages in line with their interests on the above-mentioned domains. For these tools, as indicated above, the prior consent of the users is required pursuant to art. 122 of the Privacy Code and in accordance with the Decision.
