Cookies are small text files that contain information about a user’s activity on a website and store it on the specific device used to access that website. Cookies do not damage your device and allow us to offer you a better browsing experience and faster reactivity on our website.
There are different types of cookies which, depending on their characteristics and functions, can remain on the computer or mobile device for different periods of time: the so-called session cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; differently, the so-called persistent cookies, which remain in the user's device only for a predetermined date. Cookies can be developed by the owner of the site on which the user is browsing (they are therefore called "first party" cookies) or even by third-party companies based on a contract between the owner of the website and these companies (they are therefore called "third-party" cookies).
We recommend you, to read the following information carefully for a better understanding of what type of cookies we use and how you can customize their use, based on your preferences.
- Type of cookies we may use on the website
Our website may use both cookies that do not require your consent to be downloaded to your device, and cookies that can only be downloaded with your consent.
a. Strictly necessary cookies (which do not require your prior consent): They are necessary for the function of the website, in particular to perform operations such as providing services that you request on the website, recording your preferences (for example, the username, the chosen language or the region in which you are located) and maintaining access to your registered account. Some performance and functional analytical cookies are assimilated to strictly necessary cookies. This is the case of cookies linked to Piwik PRO Analytics Suite when they are used to create aggregated data sets relating to the use of our website, as part of the processing, necessary for the proper functioning of the Site.
To ensure the proper functioning of these cookies and ensure the registration of your preferences, these cookies will not be deleted at the end of navigation. Nevertheless, these cookies will have a validity period (not exceeding 2 years) after which they will be automatically deactivated. These cookies and the information transmitted by them, will not be used for purposes other than those described above. The installation of strictly necessary cookies does not require your prior consent: we automatically set them on your device when you access the website or when you make specific choices on the site (for example, when you select your cookie preferences, or when you click on the "Remember me" option). You can decide to disable these cookies at any time through the Privacy Preference Center (more information about this is provided below).
c. Functional cookies (which require your prior consent): They are necessary for the correct functioning of specific functions with which you interact within the website, such as videos or chats. They can be used, for example, to store technical data necessary for the playback of video or audio content with which you may interact on the website. These cookies are set automatically on your device, either by us or by third parties who provide the specific features in question, when those features are loaded (automatically or when you place them on the website). You can choose to disable these cookies at any time through the Privacy Preference Center (more information on this are provided below).
d. Targeting cookies (which require your prior consent): Our website also uses targeting cookies, which can only be installed with your prior consent. The targeting cookies installed by this website include cookies belonging to third parties, always if you allow prior consent to their installation. You can freely choose not to allow these cookies from the beginning, or to disable them later, through the Privacy Preference Center (more information on this are provided below). Third parties can access to the information collected through their cookies. The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of third parties:
- Facebook (through plug-ins);
- Twitter (through plug-ins);
- Pinterest (through plug-ins).
Targeting cookies may include profiling cookies for advertising and retargeting purposes.
e. Profiling cookies for advertising purposes: those cookies create user profiles to publish advertisements that are in line with the preferences shown by users while browsing the website.
f. Retargeting cookies: they are used to display advertisements related to products like those in which you have shown interest (for example, by displaying the pages of products you have visited on our website when you browse affiliated websites) or to measure the effectiveness of marketing campaigns (ours or third parties one).
g. Social media cookies (which require your prior consent): In addition, our website allows some social networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) to install their own cookies via their plug-ins. These cookies are managed directly by third parties and can also be used to publish advertisements in line with your preferences, when you browse other websites. You can freely choose not to allow the retention of these cookies from the beginning, or to disable them later, through the Privacy Preference Center (more information on this are provided below).

You can choose whether or not to allow the installation of cookies through the browser settings section.

The browser configuration related to this choice can be monitored and changed in the settings panel of your browser.

- Third-party cookies that require consent
The installation of performance, targeting and social media cookies belonging to third parties, as well as any other activities related to such cookies, including the collection and processing of information, is of third parties’ responsibility. If you would like to know more about these cookies and the third parties that can access the information collected or how to activate or deactivate them, you can read the cookie policies of these third parties by clicking on one of the following links (non-exhaustive list):
In addition, some advertising networks allow you to deny the consent of personalized communications. This will not prevent the installation of cookies but will stop the use and collection of some data by advertisers affiliated to those networks. Please note that, despite the fact that the above are part of the major advertising companies, there could also be cookies from other companies not belonging to these networks; as a consequence, you may continue to receive cookies from that third party.
