Cookies are small text files sent to the user by the website visited. They are stored on the hard disk of the computer, thus allowing the website to recognize users and store certain information about them, in order to allow or improve the service offered.
There are different types of cookies. Some are necessary to be able to browse the Site, others have different purposes such as ensuring internal security, administering the system, carrying out statistical analyzes, understanding which sections of the Site are of greatest interest to users or offering a personalized visit to the Site.
The Site uses technical and non-profiling cookies. The foregoing refers both to the user’s computer and to any other device that the user can use to connect to the Site.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service.
They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager.
They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.
Disabling cookies may limit the ability to use the Site and prevent you from fully benefiting from the features and services available on the Site. To decide which to accept and which to refuse, a description of the cookies used on the Site is shown below.
