The use of cookies on this website

This cookie policy describes how this website uses cookies. Session cookies are not saved permanently on your computer; they disappear when you close the browser. We use them to send session identifiers (random numbers generated by the server), which are necessary to enable you to browse the website securely and efficiently.

We use session cookies on this website to avoid other computer techniques that might potentially compromise your security while browsing. Personal data that might identify you cannot be obtained from session cookies.

What is a cookie?

For full information on cookies, how they are or may potentially be used, and how to alter your browser settings for cookie use, please read the details below.

Browser cookies:

Cookies are portions of information that the website places on your browsing device when you visit a page. They can involve sending information both between the website and your device, and between your device and other websites operating on our behalf or privately, in line with their respective privacy policies. We may use cookies to bring together the information that we collect about you. You may choose to disable all cookies or to be notified every time a cookie is sent, by altering your browser settings. If you disable cookies, however, some of our services might not work correctly, and you will not be able to use numerous features created to optimise your browsing experience on the site. For more information on managing or disabling browser cookies, see the last section of this cookie policy.

We use various types of cookie with different functions. Regarding technical cookies, we may use persistent proprietary cookies and session cookies purely to provide you an efficient browsing experience on the website. We may publish a table updated from time to time indicating the types of cookie used and where to find more information about their specific uses.

Here is a summary of the main types of cookie that can technically be used.

1. Essential cookies (technical cookies)

These cookies are vital to enable you to use the website and several of its features. Without essential cookies, the online services normally offered on the website might not be available if they rely exclusively on this type of cookie. These cookies allow users to browse a website’s pages efficiently and to use the various options and services provided. For example, they make it possible to identify a session, to access reserved areas, to remember the constituent parts of an earlier request, to complete a purchase order, or to save a quotation.

Under article 122(1) of the Code (in its current version after Legislative Decree 69/2012 came into effect), “technical” cookies can also be used without your consent. You can block, deactivate or remove technical cookies by altering your browser options. By doing so, however, you may not be able to access certain parts of the website or to use some of the services.

For more information, see the website privacy policy.

2. Performance cookies (analytics cookies)

We or service providers operating on our behalf may insert performance cookies on your browsing device. The information collected through performance cookies is used exclusively by us or in our interest.

Performance cookies collect anonymous information about how users use the website and its various features. For example, our performance cookies gather details about the pages that you visit most often on the website and about our adverts on other websites that you interact with. They are also used to check if you open and read the messages that we send you and if you receive error messages. The information collected may be used to personalise your online experience by showing you specific content. Performance cookies also serve to limit the number of times you are shown the same advert. Our performance cookies do not collect personal information.

A link to our cookie policy is available via a link on the website. By continuing to use this website and its features, you authorise us (and the external advertisers on this website) to place performance cookies on your browsing device.

To remove or manage performance cookies, please read the last section of this cookie policy.

In particular, the website uses Google Analytics, an analytics tool by Google that helps website and app owners understand how visitors interact with their content. A set of cookies can be used to collect information and generate website usage statistics without Google identifying individual visitors.

Besides generating statistical reports on website use, the Google Analytics pixel tag can be employed, along with other cookies for advertising, as described above, to enable us to show results that are more relevant in the Google properties (such as Google search) and throughout the web.

For more information on analytics cookies and privacy, see the Google Developers website.

3. Functionality cookies (profiling cookies)

We (or service providers operating on our behalf) may place functionality cookies on your browsing device. When we do so, we never share the information gathered using functionality cookies with any advertisers or third parties.

These cookies are used to store your chosen preferences (language, country or other online settings) and to provide the personalised or optimised functionality that you select. Functionality cookies can be deployed to offer you online services or to avoid offering services that you have already declined.

Please note that it is technically possible to authorise advertisers or third parties to provide content and other online experiences through this website. In that case, the third party in question could place its own functionality cookies on your device and use them, as we do, to provide you personalised functionality and to optimise your user experience. By selecting personalised settings and options or optimised functionality, you authorise our use of the functionality cookies needed to offer you those experiences.

If you delete functionality cookies, then your selected preferences or settings will not be stored for future visits.

Where cookies are used by third parties, we may give you detailed links to their privacy policies.

The website may use a third-party remarketing tool. If so, then some pages of the site may include a “remarketing code”. This code makes it possible to read and configure the browser cookies to determine which kind of advert you will be shown, based on the data about your visit to the website, such as the navigation route taken, the pages visited or the actions taken on them.

The remarketing lists thus created are kept in a database on Google’s servers where all the IDs of the cookies associated with every list or category of interests are held. With the information obtained, the third party can identify only the browser, not the user.

These tools allow adverts to be published that are personalised based on users’ visits to our site.

You can withdraw your permission at any time for this data to be collected and kept. Users can deactivate Google’s use of the cookies via the specific option settings in the various browsers.

In particular, we may use the following remarketing tools:

Google Adwords – For more information on Google Remarketing, see the webpage https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2454000?hl=it&ref_topic=2677326
