5. Cookies

The processing of the personal data of users who visit the Website is limited to so-called “navigation data”, i.e. the data transmitted to the Website and required to operate the computerised systems set up for the Website’s management, as well as Internet communication protocols. By way of example, the IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used to visit the Website and the other parameters relating to the operating system used to connect to the Website all fall in this category. The Company collects such and other data (for example, the number of visits and the time spent on the Website) for truly statistical purposes and in an anonymous manner in order to monitor the functioning of the Website and improve its efficiency. The data in question are neither collected to be associated with other information regarding the users of the Site nor do they make the identification of users possible; however, due to their nature, such data may potentially lead to the identification of users if processed and associated with other data held by third parties. For this reason, navigation data are immediately de-identified after processing and may only be retrieved by the Company to ascertain, as well as identify the authors of, potential IT-related offenses committed to the detriment of the Website or through the Website. Notwithstanding the latter exception, navigation data as described above are only kept for a limited time, in compliance with the applicable legal provisions.

Cookies are small files saved on the hard disk. There exist two macro-categories of cookies: “technical cookies” and “profiling cookies”.

Technical cookies are necessary for the correct functioning of a website and make navigation possible for the user; without them, the user may be unable to view the website’s pages correctly or to use some services.

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user so as to send on-line commercial ads in line with the preferences the user has expressed during navigation.

Cookies can further be classified as

• “session” cookies, which are immediately deleted after the navigation browser is closed;

• “persistent” cookies, which are stored in the browser for a given period of time. These are used, for example, to recognise the device that connects to the Website, so as to render the authentication operations easier for the user.

• “site’s own” cookies, also known as “first party” cookies, generated and managed directly by the manager of the website that the user is navigating;

• “third party” cookies, generated and managed by subjects other than the manager of the website that the user is navigating.

The types of cookie used on the Website

The Website uses the following types of cookies:

(i) “first party” cookies, which can be either “session” or “persistent”; these are necessary to make the navigation of the Website possible, and are required for purposes of internal security and system administration;

(ii) “third-party”, “persistent” cookies, used by the Website in order to send statistical information to the Google Analytics system, through which the Company may carry out statistical analyses of the accesses/visits to the Website. These cookies are used exclusively for statistical purposes and retain information in aggregate form. Using a pair of cookies (respectively, a persistent cookie and a session cookie, the latter of which is deleted when the user closes the browser), Google Analytics also saves the timestamp of the start of the visit and the exit from the Website. It is possible to prevent Google from using cookies to collect data, and therefore to prevent their consequent processing, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following website:

Since the Company does not own the source codes of some or all third-party cookies, it is not currently able to technically prevent their writing; for this reason, it is not possible to give users the option to disable cookies directly from this page. Nevertheless, users may disable the majority of third-party cookies in use on this website by following the procedures described in the privacy policy documents of the relevant cookie owners –available by clicking on the links provided in the table below- or by amending their browser’s settings. In any case, we would like to draw your attention on the fact that disabling cookies may impair the possibility of using the Website and/or prevent the user to take full advantage of the functions and services available thereon.

The following table reports the details of the cookies that are present on the Website. Beside each “third-party” cookie is displayed the link to the privacy policy of the subject other than the manager of the Website on which the user is navigating, who generates and manages such cookies:





First Party - Session and persistent
