Cookie Policy

With reference to the provision “Identification of simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies – May 8, 2014” (published in the Official Gazette no. 126 of June 3, 2014), the specific and analyzes the characteristics and purposes of the cookies installed, also indicating the methods for selecting / deselecting individual cookies. By browsing this site, the user can receive both cookies sent directly from the site, and cookies sent from different websites or web servers and managed by third parties (third-party cookies).


Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. While browsing a site, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same is visiting.
Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes also with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, etc.
In order to arrive at a correct regulation of these devices, it is necessary to distinguish them since there are no technical characteristics that differentiate them from each other precisely on the basis of the purposes pursued by those who use them. Moreover, the same legislator has moved in this direction, which, in implementation of the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136 / EC, has brought back the obligation to acquire the prior and informed consent of users to the installation of cookies used for purposes other than purely technical ones (see art. 1, paragraph 5, letter a), of Legislative Decree no. lgs. May 28, 2012, n. 69, which amended art. 122 of the Code).
