Definitions, characteristics, and enforcement

Tracking tools mean any technology (e.g., cookies, unique identifiers, web beacons, embedded scripts, e-tags, and fingerprinting) that allows users to be tracked, including by collecting or storing information on the User's device.

Cookies are usually text strings that websites (so-called "publishers", or "first parties") visited by the user or different websites or web servers (so-called "third parties") place and store - directly, in the case of publishers, and indirectly in the case of "third parties", i.e., through them, - within a terminal device available to the user. In other words, cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and store on his/her computer or mobile device, to be then transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit. The terminals referred to are, for instance, a computer, a tablet, a smartphone, or any other device capable of storing information. Already in current times, and even more so in the future, these include the so-called IoT (Internet of Things) devices, which are designed to connect to the network and to each other to provide services of various kinds, not necessarily limited to mere communication. The software for surfing the Internet and operating these devices, e.g., browsers, can store cookies and then transmit them back to the sites that generated them on the occasion of a subsequent visit by the same user, thus keeping a record of his or her previous interaction with one or more websites. The information encoded in cookies may include personal data, such as an IP address, username, unique identifier, or email address, but may also contain non-personal data, such as language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the site. It is thanks to cookies that a site remembers the user's actions and preferences so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to that site or navigates from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking, and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site. They may also contain a unique identification code that allows tracking of the user's navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes. 

Cookies and other tracking tools may have different temporal, subjective or functional characteristics:

  • persistent cookies are stored on your computer and are not automatically deleted when you close your browser, unlike session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser. Session cookies consist of random numbers generated by the server to enable secure and efficient exploration of the site;
  • first-party cookies are cookies created by the site the user is visiting: only that site can read them. In addition, a website can in theory use external services that also create their own cookies, called third-party cookies;
  • Technical cookies are required by some computer systems and are necessary for the proper functioning of some web pages. These cookies are used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, they are cookies that are indispensable for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user;
  • analytical cookies, on the other hand, are those intended to provide the site operator with purely statistical data on access to the site, such as those designed to measure 'traffic', i.e., the number of visitors, also possibly broken down in terms of geographical area, time of connection or other characteristics;
  • profiling cookies are used to link specific actions or recurring behavioural patterns in the use of the offered functionalities (patterns) to specific identified or identifiable subjects, in order to group the different profiles within homogeneous clusters of different sizes, so that it is possible to modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly personalised manner beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as to send targeted advertising messages, i.e. in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web. These cookies may be stored on the user's device through the site directly by the Controller or by different parties (hereinafter, the "Third Parties").

Under current Italian law, the use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, 'technical cookies' do not require such consent. Cookies and other tracking tools for non-technical purposes may, however, only be used after obtaining the consent, however informed, of the contractor or user. 

Types of cookies used on the site

This site uses technical cookies or similar tools - navigation or session cookies - strictly limited to what is necessary to ensure the safe and efficient navigation of the site, the operation of the site or to enable the user to take advantage of the functionality or content requested.

At present, there are no analytical or profiling cookies installed by this Website or other similar tracking tools.
