Cookies and other technology for reading/storing information on the user's device

We use cookies (small text files transferred from the web server to the user's computer) and other technology, such as fingerprinting, email trackers and Clear GIF/Beacons, to read and/or store information on the user's device. The purpose of this is to provide the server with information regarding the user's access to the web page concerned, and any other information that is obtained from the readable parameters of the system through the functionality of the web page. This is done to personalize and facilitate the user's browsing experience and in some cases, subject to the user's consent, to improve user profiling for advertising and/or commercial reasons. Cookies may be "temporary" (session based, which are deleted when the connection is terminated) or "permanent" (stored on the user's hard drive, unless the user chooses to delete them).

The cookies used by our websites and by our apps, are covered by the two categories established by the Italian Data Protection Authority ("Privacy Guarantor") under the general regulations known as the Cookie Policy of 8 May 2014, to which the Data Controller adheres in terms of its information notice and the requirement to, and methods of, obtaining consent. In particular, this notice also represents the full version of the short banner text already seen by the user upon accessing the website and/or when installing the app.

On the basis of the aforementioned Italian Privacy Guarantor's guidelines, our websites and apps use: “Technical cookies”, that are strictly necessary for the functioning of the website/app and/or to provide a service specifically requested by the user. This category of cookies includes analytics used by the Data Controller to collect information, in an aggregated form, about the number of users and how they visit the website. The user's permission is not required in order to use this type of cookie, unless the user expressly refuses it for one or all of the technical cookies (listed below):

"Profiling Cookies" that are owned by the company and/or by third parties, meaning cookies that could be used to create/add information to the user's profile, and used to send and/or show advertising messages in line with the preferences exhibited by the user, while browsing the website. It is always necessary to obtain the user's (voluntary) consent for this type of cookie. The user may choose which profiling or technical cookies, such as fingerprinting/Clear GIF/profiling beacons, to accept. With reference to third party cookies or technologies, meaning those installed/used on the website by parties other than the Data Controller, the user may give or decline consent directly to the owner of the cookie and/or the technology concerned, to which the Data Controller merely provides a link.

The following profiling/non technical and/or other technologies such as beacons/Clear GIF/fingerprinting are used:

The use of other permanent cookies and session cookies (which are not stored permanently on the user's computer and are deleted upon closing the browser) is strictly limited to transmitting session identification data (composed of random numbers generated by the server) that is required for the website to be browsed safely and correctly. The session cookies used by the website avoid resorting to other processing technologies that could compromise the user's privacy while browsing, and do not enable personal data to be collected that could identify the user.
