Types of Cookies used by

Technical Cookies

This type of cookie allows certain sections of the Site to function correctly.

Only technical cookies are used on this website, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website.

They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);

analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
functionality cookies, which allow the User to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the User.
The installation of such cookies does not require the prior consent of the Users, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code remains in place, which the Site manager, if he uses only such devices, may provide in the manner he considers most appropriate.
The acquisition and processing of data resulting from the use of technical cookies is mandatory for the consultation of the Site.

In the event of opposition on the part of the User, it will not be possible to view the Site fully and correctly.

With the exception of technical cookies, the general rule for “The storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or user or access to information already stored” remains that of the User’s prior and informed consent (opt-in).

This means that all the cookies that cannot be qualified as “technical”, which are more critical from the point of view of the protection of the private sphere of the Users, such as, for example, those used for profiling and marketing purposes, cannot be installed on the terminals of the Users themselves if they have not been adequately informed beforehand and have not given their valid consent.
