Dear User, Under the nr. 196/2003 Legislative Decree (Italian Personal Data Protection Code), the handling of your information shall be based on principles of correctness, lawfulness and transparency, as well as on the protection of your privacy and rights.
Therefore, subject to Article 13 of the nr. 196/2003 Legislative Decree, we provide the following information:
Cookies are small text files that a website sends to the user's terminal (usually a browser), where they are stored and then sent again to the website the next time the user visits the website. A cookie cannot retrieve any other information from the user’s hard drive, pass on computer viruses or capture e-mail addresses. Each cookie is unique to the user’s web browser. Some features of cookies can be transferred to other technologies. The term ‘cookie’ as used herein refers to both actual cookies and all similar technologies.
Cookies can be either first-party or third-party. “First-party” cookies refer to cookies that include the website as a domain. “Third-party” cookies refer to cookies concerning external domains. Third-party cookies are necessarily installed by an external entity, always defined as a “third party”, that is not run by the website. Such entities may also install first-party cookies by saving their own cookies to the website's domain. Another type of cookies is the so called “Flash Cookies” (Local Shared Objects), which are used within Adobe Flash Player to display content, such as video clips or animations, so as to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the device, but are processed through a different interface than that of the browser currently used.
In relation to the nature of cookies, there are several types:
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” (cf. Art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code) They are not used for any other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or the keeper of the website. They can be divided into:
Profile cookies:Profile cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in keeping with the preferences set by the user while browsing the web. The user's consent is required to use profile cookies. In the case of third-party cookies, the website does not have direct control over single cookies and cannot control them (it cannot install them directly or delete them). You can still handle these cookies through browser settings.
The duration of cookies is dependent on the expiration date (or on a specific action such as the closing of the browser) set upon installation. Cookies can be:
The Website exclusively uses “technical” cookies, such as navigation, session and functionality cookies.
In particular, navigation or session cookies are used in order to ensure regular website navigation and usage and are therefore aimed at enhancing navigation and making it functional within the website.
They are used solely by the keeper of the Website to collect information in aggregate form and anonymously about the number of users and how they visit the website.
|#||Cookie Name||Default Expiration Time||Description|
|1||__utmt||10 minutes||Used to throttle request rate.|
|1||__utmc||End of browser session||Not used in ga.js. Set for interoperability with urchin.js. Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether the user was in a new session/visit.|
The “Google Analytics” used within the website have been made “anonymous”. The data acquired through Google Analytics can also be used by Google, according to the Google Analytics Terms of Service. There are no profile or third-party cookies used by the keeper of the Website.
You can disable or clear out cookies directly from your browser. To this purpose we include links for each browser’s settings below:
