Therefore, the Company undertakes to process said data in accordance with the principles of fairness, lawfulness and transparency, in compliance with the purposes set out below, collecting said data only for specified and necessary purposes. Only authorised and properly trained personnel will be allowed to use said data in order to guarantee the necessary confidentiality of the information provided. In particular, the Company will collect, record, consult and generally process your browsing data.

In particular, the Company will collect, record, consult and generally process your browsing data.

Cookies are small text strings which websites visited by the users send and record on their computer or mobile device, to be to be later sent back to the website when a user returns for another visit. The purpose of the cookie is to remember user actions and preferences (e.g. login details, language, font size), so that it does not have to be selected again when the user browsers through pages on the same website or returns at a later date. Cookies are therefore used to perform authentication operations, browser session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site. They may also contain a unique identification code that makes it possible to keep track of the user's navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a website, users may receive on their computer or mobile device "first party" cookies - if those are installed directly by the website manager - but also cookies from websites or web servers known as "third party" cookies, installed on the user's device by another party than the site manager. Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the operation of the site.

The Website uses the following types of cookies, and their settings are described here below:

  1. Technical cookies, meaning cookies that allow the functioning of the Website and make it easier to use its contents and services. These cookies are divided into:

    1. browsing/session cookiesthe use of these cookies (which are not permanently stored on the user's computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable the safe and efficient exploration of the site and its applications. The session cookies used on the Website avoid the use of other computer techniques potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of user navigation and do not allow the acquisition of personal identification data of the user. They do not require your consent.

    2. persistent cookies: persistent cookies remain on your device even after you leave the Website, until you delete them or until they expire. The site creates these cookies and stores them on your device so that they can be read when you visit the site again. These allow, for example, to find, even on subsequent visits to the site, the preferences set. They do not require your consent.
  2. Analytical cookies: meaning cookies installed to collect aggregate information of a mainly statistical nature (e.g. how long you stay on a web page, number of visitors to the site). These cookie are divided into:

    1. First-party analytical cookies: which are similar to technical cookies in that they are installed directly by the operator of the site you are visiting to improve its usability. These cookies do not require your consent.
    2. Third-party analytical cookies: analytical cookies made and installed by third parties to analyse users' browsing, to produce statistics on visits or to improve the content offerings, to show similar products and to place targeted advertising on web pages if necessary. The system used by this Website is the Piwik Pro platform which, like the other systems, uses cookies to enable the website to analyse how users use the site.  The information generated by the cookies is not passed on by Piwik Pro to its data processor and is not used for its own purposes. Since the IP address is appropriately masked, the user’s consent is not required for its installation.
