GENERAL INFORMATION ON COOKIES AND OTHER MONITORING TECHNOLOGIES
We do not exchange cookies with external websites or external data providers.
This website and the communications generated with the use and/or the registration on this website, such as, promotional e-mails, may contain electronic images known as “web beacons”. Web beacons generally operate in connection with cookies, and we may use them with cookies, for instance, to:
- Count the number of visitors on the website;
- Check whether you operated by means of e-mails or through a link, for instance, where this is a condition to take part in a contest;
- Verify how successful a specific advertising campaign or a contest is;
- Establish particular interest levels for specific sections or aspects of the website or for particular products and services available on this website;

The Italian law (article 122 of Legislative Decree 196/03 “Code concerning personal data protection” hereafter shortened as “Code”) introduced in our legal system a European Directive which requires managers of websites using cookies or other monitoring techniques to inform the user as to the types of cookies, if any, used by the website. The Provisions of the Authority for Data Protection number 229 dated May 8th 2014, published on the Official Gazette number 126 dated June 3rd 2014, subdivided cookies into two main categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.
Technical cookies are those used only to “carry out the transmission on an electronic communication network, or just inasmuch as is needed, by the provider of a service of an information society service supplier explicitly requested by the subscriber or the user, to supply this service” (see article 122, part 1, of the Code).
They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the controller or manager of the website. They may be subdivided in navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for instance, to complete a purchase or to complete authentication to access a reserved area); cookie analytics, analogous to technical cookies inasmuch as they are used directly by the manager of the website to collect information, in aggregate form, regarding the number of users and how they use the website itself; functioning cookies, which allow users to navigate depending on a series of selected criteria (such as, language, products selected for purchase) so as to improve the service provided to the user.
For the installation of these cookies preventive consent of users is not necessary.
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles relative to the user and are used to send advertising messages aligned to the preferences shown by the user while navigating the web. Given the particular intrusiveness which such devices may have within the private domain of users, Italian and European norms envisage that users should be adequately informed as to the use of the devices and express their valid consent.
These cookies are referred to by article 122 of the Code where it states that “storing information in the terminal device of a buyer or user or the access to previously stored information is only allowed on condition that the buyers or users expressed their consent with the simplified methods described in article 13, part 3” (article 122, part 1, of the Code).
In the same Provision the Authority also classified cookies according to the subject operating as controller of the treatment of the personal data collected by the cookie, distinguishing between first party cookies and third party cookies.
First party cookies
These are cookies managed by the website’s owner. For these cookies, the owner is in duty bound to provide information as to the cookies. The owner also must describe the method to block the cookies.
Third party cookies
These are cookies managed by a third party other than the owner of the website. For these cookies, the obligation to provide information and to describe the method to block the cookies lies with the third party, while the owner of the website must insert in the website links to the third party site where these elements are available.
In both types of cookies (first party or third party) obtaining consent, necessary when cookies are profiling cookies, occurs with a purposely designed banner placed in the home page of the website.
