Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to its terminal and they contain details of the user’s browsing experience on the websites themselves. The cookies are then memorized in order to be re-transmitted to the same websites for future visits.
The so called “third parties” cookies are used and set forth by a website different from the one the user is visiting.

Types of cookies
On the basis of their characteristics and of their use, it is possible to distinguish the following categories of cookies:
– Technical Cookies: Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service.” (see Section 122(1) of the Code).
They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the data controller or by the website manager. They can be grouped into browsing or session cookies, which allow users to normally navigate and use a website; analytics cookies, which can be considered as technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website; functional cookies, which allow user to navigate as a function of certain pre-determined criteria such as language or products to be purchased in order to improve the quality of service.
Users´ prior consent is not necessary to install these cookies, whilst information under Section 13 of the code has to be provided in the manner considered to be most appropriate by the website manager – if only such cookies are relied upon.
– Profiling Cookies: Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user’s profiles. They are used to send advertisement messages in line with the preferences shown by the same user during navigation. In the light of the highly invasive nature of these cookies vis-à-vis users´ private sphere, Italian and European legislation requires users to be informed appropriately on their use in order to give their valid consent.
These cookies are referred to in Article 122(1) of the Code, where it is provided that “Storing information, or accessing information that is already stored, in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user shall only be permitted on condition that the contracting party or user has given his consent after being informed in accordance with the simplified arrangements mentioned in section 13(3).”
This website does not use profiling cookies.
