Cookies disclosure statement in accordance with Art. 13 of the Privacy Code drawn up in compliance with the regulation issued by the data protection authority 08/05/2014
What are cookies?
Cookies are small strings of text that websites visited by a user send to their device, where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits that site. For this purpose, cookies are divided into technical and profiling cookies, depending on the function for which they are used, and into first-party and third-party cookies, depending on which party installs them.
Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of "transmitting data over an electronic communications network or - if strictly necessary for the provision of a service offered by the information company - for delivering a service that has been explicitly requested by the subscriber or user" (see Art. 122 paragraph 1 of the Data Protection Code). Technical cookies are different from browsing or session cookies (which guarantee normal browsing and use of the website), analytical cookies (similar to technical cookies where they are used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, about the number of users and how they visit the same site) and functional cookies (which allow the user to navigate according to a set of criteria, such as language, in order to improve the service provided to that user).
Profiling cookies are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of browsing the net.
Depending on which party installs the cookies on the user's device, and whether it is the operator of the site that the user is visiting, or the operator of a different site that installs the cookies for their own use, cookies are defined as either first-party cookies or third-party cookies.
In order to offer an optimal browsing experience, the website being visited could make use of all or some of the following first-party and/or third parties' cookies:
Session cookies (local)
These are technical cookies with a memory function, which remember the decisions the user makes on the website but which are deleted once the user leaves the site. On an e-commerce website, this cookie is also used to store the products added to the shopping cart.
Google Analytics (third-party)
