Cookies are small text files (letters and/or numbers) that allow our web server to store information on the client (the browser) to be reused over the course of the same visit to the site (session cookies) or subsequently, even some days after (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, from a single browser on the specific device being used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

Similar technologies, like, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on a user’s behaviour and on the use of services.

In this document, we refer to cookies and any other similar technologies simply as “cookies”.

Cookies can be split into the following categories based on their characteristics and use:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the website to run properly are used on to manage the login and access to the website’s restricted functions. The duration of cookies is limited to the session in progress (in closing the browser they are erased).
  • Technical cookies. Technical Cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of messages over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the service provider of the IT company specifically requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service (see, Article 122, Paragraph 1 of the Code)”. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website’s owner or operator. To technical cookies belong: “navigation” (or “session” cookies), that enable the normal use of the website (e.g. they allow the user to complete a purchase or to authenticate and access reserved areas); “analytics” cookies, that belong to technical cookies in the case they are used directly by the website administrator to gather group data on the numbers of visitors the website has and on how such visitors move in the website.
  • Profiling Cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create a users’ profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the users browsing the internet. Such devices can be particularly invasive in terms of user privacy; for this reason Italian and European legislation requires users to be properly informed on the use of the same and to express their valid consent.

When visiting a website, users may receive cookies used by the site they are browsing (proprietary cookies) as well as by websites managed by other organizations (third party cookies). A good example is the use of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn social media plug-ins. These are part of the pages of the visited website, which are generated directly by the third party and integrated into the hosting web page. The most common reason for using these plug-ins is to allow users to share content on social media. These plugins require cookies to be sent to and from all websites operated by third parties. The handling of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information, which we kindly ask you to consult.
