Cookies are short pieces of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even days later (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored according to user preferences from the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, for example, web beacons, clear GIFs and all types of HTML5 local storage, can be used to collect information on user behaviour and use of services.
From this point on, we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies in this document by simply using the word “cookies”.
Types of cookies
These cookies are essential for Website navigation to perform key functions such as authentication, validation, and management of a browsing session and, for example, to identify whether the user has had regular access to areas of the Website that require prior validation or user authentication and session management for various services and applications or data storage for safe access.
According to Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Act (in the applicable statement after Legislative Decree No. 69/2012 came into force) “technical” cookies can be used even without the consent of the party concerned.
A number of technical cookies and examples of Website-specific activity are listed below for complete transparency. Cookies are installed directly onto the user's terminal or from third-party domains (which will not be used for other purposes) such as authentication cookies, cookies for multimedia content like Flash Player that do not exceed the duration of the session, cookies that are customised (for example, for choosing the language of the browser, ID recall and completing passwords as you type the first few characters, etc.)
Without these cookies, the Website or certain sections of it may not work properly. Therefore, they are always used and sent, unless the user changes his/her browser settings (thus affecting how the web pages are displayed).
They are cookies used to statistically analyse access/visits to the Website for statistical purposes (not for profiling or marketing purposes) only and they collect aggregate information that does not trace back to the individual user’s identity. These cookies, even without the means to identify the user, can detect for example, if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also enable system monitoring and improve its performance and usability. These cookies can be deactivated without any loss of functionality.

The user can disable Google Analytics in selective mode by installing the Opt-out Add-on provided by Google on their browser. To disable Google Analytics, please refer to the link shown below:
These are permanent cookies used to identify user preferences (anonymously and identifiably) and they track behaviour analysis objectives for marketing purposes.
By giving their consent to profiling cookie activity, the party concerned expressly authorises data processing for marketing purposes. This consent is completely optional (and in any case, informally revocable, even later on) and failure to give consent will not result in any consequences other than the inability to process the cited marketing data. If consent for marketing is refused, it won’t obstruct and/or impact on being able to access the Website.

While the user is browsing on the Website, s/he may also receive cookies (so-called “third-party” cookies) on his/her terminal from different sites or web servers; this is because there may be elements on the Website such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one where the requested page is found. In other words, these cookies are installed directly by website operators or servers other than the ones on the Website.
These cookies can be sent to the user’s browser from third-party companies directly from their website, which can be accessed, by navigating from this Website. In such cases, the Company is not responsible for the activity of these cookies; these third-party companies are responsible for sending these cookies.
In accordance with current legislation, the user can give consent and change preferences on the usage of these cookies at any time by means of specific browser configurations and computer programs or devices that are simple and user friendly for the user. Cookies can also be disabled from the browser at any time, although this may prevent the user from using certain parts of the Website. However, disabling “third-party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way.
For the sake of transparency of information, expected by operators of the “first part of the site” (i.e. of this Website) where “third-party cookies” are enabled, we inform you that the following third-party cookies are used on this Website:
Google Maps provide interactive maps that allow editorial operators to include customizable interactive maps within their own web pages. This Website can use Google Maps to provide detailed information on the Company’s location or on the location of a specific activity.
“Social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Digg, as well as others are present on this Website. These refer to parts of the visited page generated directly from the abovementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is to share the contents on social networking sites.
The appearance of these plugins involves transmitting cookies to and from all the sites operated by third parties. The handling of information collected by “third parties” is governed by relevant rules, to which we kindly ask you to refer. To ensure greater transparency and ease, web addresses on all types of information and how to manage cookies of the main social networking sites are shown below:

Youtube is a web platform that allows the sharing and network viewing of videos (video sharing). Youtube uses standard HTML5 tags in the new versions of the browser (or Adobe Flash Video in older ones) to display a wide range of videos but it is replaced by a proprietary application of the website if the user has activated beta testing.

Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until you close the browser or when logging out. Other cookies “survive” when you close the browser and are also available on later visits made by the user.
These cookies are called persistent and the server sets their duration when they are created. In some cases, an expiry date is set; in other cases duration is unlimited.
This Website uses both session cookies and persistent cookies.
Also, by browsing the pages on this Website, you can interact with sites operated by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.
