Cookie Policy

(Measure of the Italian Data Protection Authority of 8 May 2014, published in the Official Gazette no. 126 on 3 June 2014, endorsing Directive 2002/58/EC)
Cookies are small pieces of text that the websites you visit send to your terminal (usually to your browser), where they are stored to then be resent to the same websites the next time you visit them. In addition to cookies, the measure of the Italian Data Protection Authority also applies to other similar instruments (web beacons/web bugs, clear GIFs or other instruments) which are used to identify the user or the terminal. While browsing a website, you may also receive on your terminal cookies that are sent by other websites web servers ( “third parties"), which may include certain elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to other domains) on the website you are visiting.
A very high number of cookies are usually found in users’ browsers, sometimes with significant persistence over time, and are used for various purposes: IT authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations for users that access the server, etc. Additional information on cookies can be found on www.allaboutcookies.org.
In order to ensure the correct regulation of these instruments, they must be distinguished from each other, as their technical characteristics do not differentiate them from each other, based specifically on the purposes of the party using them. Moreover, the Italian legislator took action in this direction, in the implementation of the provisions set out in Directive 2009/136/EC, requiring the obligation to acquire prior, informed consent from users to install cookies used for purposes other than merely technical cookies.
