EU privacy regulations and use of cookies in websites

Notice on cookies

Like many other websites, we use cookies to make your experience browsing our website easier and more intuitive. Cookies are small strings of text used to memorise certain items of information on users, their preferences, and the devices they use to access the Internet (computer, tablet or smartphone) and are used primarily to adapt the way the site works to the user’s expectations, offering a more customised browsing experience and memorising the choices the user expressed in the past.

Cookies do not record any personal information, and any identifiable data will not be memorised. You may block saving of some or all cookies if you wish; this may, however, compromise the way in which you can use the website and the services offered. To proceed without modifying cookies options, simply continue browsing.

What types and categories of cookie are used, and for what purposes?

Websites use different types of cookies, each of which has a specific function. The Data Controller uses cookies to make websites simpler and adapt both the sites and the products to users’ needs and interests. Cookies may also be used to speed up future browsing experiences and activities on websites. Cookies are also used to compile anonymous aggregated statistics which help us understand how users use websites in order to improve their content and structure.

Below is an explanatory list.

Technical cookies

“Technical” cookies are essential to permit the proper functioning of websites and allow users to browse sites and make use of their features (for instance, by permitting memorisation of previous actions or permitting saving of the user’s session and/or performance of other activities strictly necessary for the functioning of websites).

This category also includes “analytic” cookies, which help us to understand how users interact with websites, supplying information on the most recent page visited, the number of sections and pages visited, the amount of time spent on websites and everything that happened during the browsing session, for instance, if there was an error message, helping us to understand the difficulties users may encounter in using websites. This information may be associated with details on the user such as IP address, domain or browser; they will, however, be analysed together with information from other users so that no one user may be distinguished from the others. These cookies are collected and grouped together in anonymous form and allow us to improve site performance.

Lastly, “functional” cookies allow websites to remember users’ choices (such as username) for more personalised, optimised browsing. Functional cookies are not essential for the functioning of the website, but improve the quality and experience of browsing. If you do not accept these cookies, the performance and functioning of the website may be inferior, and your access to site content may be limited.

Profiling cookies

“Targeting” or “profiling” cookies are used to present content more appropriate to the user and his or her interests. They may be used to display targeted advertising, to publish advertising inserts customised on the basis of the user’s interests, or to limit the number of times the user sees a given advertisement.

They also help to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on websites; the Data Controller may use these cookies to remember the sites the user visited and share this information with third parties, including agencies and advertisers who may use their own cookies to collect information on the activities performed by users on websites.

“Sharing” (or social network) cookies are necessary to permit the user to interact with websites through his or her own account on a social network and are used, for example, to express appreciation and share a website with one’s social contacts.

The site uses, or may use, the following types of cookie, or combinations thereof:

  • “session” cookies which are memorised on the user’s computer for merely technical and functional reasons, to permit transmission of session identifiers necessary to permit safe, efficient browsing of the website; they are deleted when the browser is closed at the end of the “session” (hence the name);
  • “persistent” cookies, which are stored on the computer’s hard disk until they expire or are deleted by users. Persistent cookies permit automatic recognition of users who come back to the website (or other users who use the same computer).

Third party cookies

While browsing our website you may also receive cookies from third parties such as those used for Google Analytics, a web analysis service supplied by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse how users use the site. Information on use of the web site (including your anonymous IP address) generated by cookies will be transmitted to and stored on Google’s servers in the United States. Google will use this information to examine your use of the website, prepare reports on site activities for the site’s operators and supply other services pertaining to website activity and use of internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required to do so by law, or if these third parties process this information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data in Google’s possession. You may refuse to use cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser, but we remind you that in this case it is possible that you may not be able to use all the functions available on this website. This site may also use a number of “social plugins” for sharing and communication of content; their use is optional. When you use one of the social plugins, the site will, through your browser, contact servers on which the social sharing services in question are managed, providing them with the data you intend to publish and share through your profile on the social network in question (which you alone are responsible for) and informing the servers of the pages you have visited. Remember that to prevent this from happening, all you need to do is avoid sharing content using social network sharing buttons. For more information on the use and collection of data through the following social plugins, and to find out how the data thus collected and transmitted is processed, and for what purposes, please read the privacy and legal information issued by the operators of the services in question.

How do cookies work, and how can they be deleted?

The majority of internet browsers are initially set up to accept cookies automatically, but users may change these settings to block cookies or be warned whenever cookies are sent to their devices.
