What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent from a website to your computer (usually your browser) and stored in it. Every time you go back to the same website, your browser retrieves these files and sends the information in it to the website server. Cookies are not used to convey important or sensitive data.
The cookies used on this website do not store any personally identifiable information, such as your name or address, but are used to improve your browsing experience and make it more efficient, including by remembering your preferences when you come back to our website.
Types of Cookies
Cookies can be divided into two main categories:
- strictly necessary cookie, which are themselves divided into:
- temporary or session cookies
- statistical or analytics cookies (if used by the site operator)
- functionality cookies
- profiling cookies
“Strictly necessary” cookies
Strictly necessary cookies are used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service" (see Section 122, par. 1, of the Italian Privacy Law).
They are not used for other purposes and are usually installed by the owner or operator of the website.
They can be divided into temporary or session cookies, which aid the user’s navigation through the pages of the website (for example, by allowing users to make a purchase or log in and access restricted areas); analytics cookies, which are similar to technical cookies when used by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of visitors to the site and their browsing actions; functionality cookies, which allow users to browse the site according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products in shopping carts) in order to provide an enhanced user experience.
Users' prior consent is not necessary to install these cookies, but the user must be informed of their presence as per Section 13, par. 3 of the Italian Privacy Law.
Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are often used to send targeted advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation.
“Lifetime” or duration of cookies
A cookie may be "temporary" or "persistent" depending on how long it will remain or be stored in your device. “Session” or temporary cookies only last for the duration of your online session, while persistent cookies can remain on your computer for a long period of time, until you choose to remove them.
