What cookies are
Cookies are packets of information sent from a web server (from this website) to the user’s browser and automatically memorized on the PC or mobile device, then automatically sent back to the server at each subsequent access, either in the current visit of the website (session cookies) or at a later time (persistent cookies).
Types of cookie
Cookies are used for various purposes. Some of them can facilitate the performance of processes related to browsing the web by automating several of the procedures that would otherwise be repeated each time a user browses a website. Other can enable specific features. There are various categories of cookies:
- First-party cookies are sent by the website browsed by the user to her/his device in order to make a specific service provided by the site possible.
- Third-party cookies belong to a domain different from the one shown in the address bar. This sort of cookie typically appears when the site features content from other external websites, which process the user’s data collected by the cookie.
This website deploys both first-party and third-party cookies.
Our website uses so called “technical cookies” like for example session cookies, functional cookies, analytics cookies.
- Browsing cookies: cookies that support services you have specifically asked for. They are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided.
- Functionality cookies: they allow the website to remember changes you have made to settings like text size, fonts, language, world region, etc. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. In case they are blocked, the ease of navigation might be affected but the essential features of the website will still be there.
- Analytics cookies: we use these cookies to give us information on how people use our site, such as the number of visitors to our site/service, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they have visited. This function is served by Google Analytics operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This website does not make use of or allow third parties to use Google Analytics in order to collect or store personal information (e.g. name or address), so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. However, data collected through Google Analytics can be used by Google.
Following the recommendations of the Italian Privacy Protection Authority, we have activated IP anonymization (i.e. Google Analytics will make the IP address of the visitor of this website anonymous as soon as possible). Furthermore, Google Analytics’ “data sharing” setting was modified so that Google can use personal data it collects only if allowed by this website’s administrator. In any case, Google will not share the personal data it collects with any other services it provides. Automatic sending of advertising messages was disabled. Google will not associate the user’s IP address to any other data or attempt to link the IP address to the visitor’s identity. Google might have to transmit personal data to third parties when required by the law, or when such third parties process data on behalf of Google. For further information, see
Website visitors who do not want their data used by Google Analytics can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. To configure the add-on, see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. No profiling cookies are used in this website.
By navigating this site, you agree to receive cookies from third parties based in Italy or abroad.
Third-parties analytics cookies
Our website uses analytics cookies to record anonymous information such as the number of visits to each page, how long each visit was, where the visitor came from (a search engine, another website etc.), his/her age. The data collected is used for advertising purposes. These cookies are sent from domains different from the one shown in the address bar (third-party cookies).
Cookies used to integrate third-party functions/products
Cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functions into the website (for example, feedback forms or social network icons allowing visitors to share the website contents, or data used to generate maps by services like Google Maps, and so on). Again, they belong to the third-party category.
