A. What are cookies and what do they do

Cookies are small text strings sent by the websites visited by the user to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being sent back to the same websites during the next visit by the same user. (so-called first-party cookies). When browsing this Site, the User could also receive cookies from other sites or web servers (so called third-party cookies); this is because the site could include elements such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains on different servers. In other words, these are cookies set by a website different from the website currently being visited.

Cookies can have a limited duration to a single browsing session on the browser (so-called session cookies), and in this case they are automatically deactivated when the user closes the browser; or they may have a predetermined deadline and, in this case, they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until their expiration date, continuing to collect information during different browsing sessions on the browser (so-called persistent cookies).

Cookies are used for different purposes. Some are necessary to allow you to browse the site and take advantage of its features (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether aggregated or not, on the number of users accessing the Site and on how the Website is used (so-called trackingor analytics cookies). Others, lastly, are used to track your consumer profile and make you display advertisements on the site that may be interesting for you, as they are consistent with your tastes and your consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).

For more details on these different categories of cookies read this notice. Learn how they work and what they are necessary for, and choose freely whether to consent to using or preventing them.

B. Technical instruments

B.1. Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used on the website so you can browse it and enjoy its functionality. These are always first-party cookies, as we manage them directly on our Site.

Some technical cookies are essential to offer you an optimal browsing experience or to allow you to authenticate yourself on the site, for example to make a purchase on the Site or enter your reserved area (so-called browsing cookies). Browsing cookies are normally Session cookies and, therefore, they turn off automatically once you close your browser navigation.

You are clearly free to block the installation of profiling cookies at any time whatsoever and this will not compromise in any way whatsoever the possibility to visit the Website of Origin and benefit of its contents.

Other technical cookies are useful to allow you to store some of your preferences (for example, the language or country of origin) without having to reset them during subsequent visits (so-called functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, because they remain stored on your computer even after the browser is closed until their expiration date or until you decide to delete them.

B.2. Saving User Preferences

As required by Applicable Law, for the installation of technical cookies, referred to in paragraph B.1 above, your prior consent is not required. Of course you can block the installation of technical cookies by changing browser settings (see paragraph E, n. 1 to see how). Remember, however, that blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently removing them, may compromise in whole or in part the ability to access the website, to use all or part of the site, enable or disable certain functions or to receive certain services.

On the contrary, for the installation of cookies and/or other tracking tools other than technical ones (such as, for example, profiling cookies) your prior consent is required. For this reason, when you access the Site, a special banneris displayed that informs you that, with your prior consent, cookies are used on the Site that do not have a technical purpose and that by pressing the appropriate button provided therein, you can consent to the use of cookies.

Should you express your consent to the installation of cookies in this way, we will keep track of your consent through a specific technical cookie or through other technical methods related to the use of the banner, which allow you to always keep the documentation of the User’s choices up to date. In the latter case, the Company may process, for this purpose, metadata relating to the granular choices made by the User: the possible expression of consent, the detail of the granular purposes for which the User has given consent, as well as the possible choice of the user to continue browsing maintaining the defaultsettings by pressing the relative button provided in the banner.

In this way, we will avoid having you display the banneron cookies during your subsequent visits to the Site and we will keep track of your choices in line with the requirements of the Applicable Regulations.

Please note that, if the Company uses a technical cookie or other means to demonstrate your consent that allows you to keep the documentation of the User’s choices up to date and you delete this technical cookie or other tool used by your browser for this purpose in the manner referred to in paragraph D, no. 1 below, the trace of your consent may be lost and, therefore, during your next visit to the Site the bannermay be displayed again.

The Company acts as the data controller of this data, in accordance with the Applicable Regulation. We will process your data only by electronic means, in a totally automated way and without human mediation. Therefore, our collaborators will never access the content of your personal data obtained through cookies, which means that they will never be able to access and / or have PII (Personally Identifiable Information), that is information from which it will be possible to identify you directly.

Some of our collaborators, appointed by us in charge of the processing, pursuant to Art. 29 of the Regulation, may carry out maintenance on the computer systems that host your data, without ever being able to access their actual content.

Personal data could be stored on serversmanaged by third parties (e.g. IT system providers) or could be managed by subjects specialised in online advertising, acting as data controllers, pursuant to Art. 28 of the Regulation, on the basis of a specific written appointment by the Company.

F. Transfers of personal data to a third country

We inform you that, in compliance with the conditions and guarantees established by the Regulation, your data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (so-called EEA). These countries may not offer a level of protection of privacy and protection of personal data comparable to that guaranteed by the Applicable Regulations; where the Company will act as data controller we will take the utmost consideration of data security and, therefore, we will proceed in the management of such transfers with all due precautions and guarantees in accordance with the Applicable Regulations and, in particular, in accordance with articles 45 (Transfer on the basis of an adequacy decision) and 46 (Transfer subject to adequate safeguards) of the Regulation.

Specifically, for the provision of the Google Analytics service (referred to in paragraph C above), the Company’s provider, Google Ireland Limited, may transfer the pseudonymous personal data of Site Users outside the EEA, based on the so-called Standard Contractual Clauses and, in particular, to the United States, adopting to this end additional measures to ensure that the transfer takes place in accordance with the Regulation itself. More information about the additional security measures applied by Google Ireland Limited for transfers of personal data outside the European Union can be found within the following resources made available by the supplier: “Regarding international data transfers in Google Analytics” (referred to at the link: and “Safeguards for international data transfers with Google’s advertising and analytics products” (referred to at the link: In consideration of the scope of processing, the nature of the data processed and the risks of the processing carried out by the supplier, the Company has considered appropriate the additional security measures that the supplier guarantees to adopt to protect the personal data processed on behalf of the Company itself.

It should be noted that some of the third parties indicated in the tables referred to in this information could – as independent data controllers of the data collected by means of third-party cookies – process the personal data collected by means of the cookies installed on this Site from a location located outside the European territory and, therefore, it is advisable to carefully read their information above for more details on the subject.
