12.         Management of third-party cookies.

The site uses the following technical cookies:

Analytics: this site uses cookies from the Google Analytics service provided by Google Inc. in order to elaborate statistical analysis on how users navigate the site. The IP addresses of the users are rendered anonymous before being saved by the Google Analytics service, a technical cookie necessary to track the consent given by the user.

13.         Cookie information

13.1 Definitions.

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same.
Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server.
Given that there are no technical characteristics that differentiate them from each other, in order to achieve proper regulation of such devices, it is necessary to distinguish them on the basis of the aims pursued by those who use them.
Therefore, in implementation of the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136 / EC, pursuant to art. 1, paragraph 5, lett. a) of Legislative Decree 28 May 2012, n. 69, which amended the art. 122 of the Privacy Code, the legislator has established the obligation to obtain the prior and informed consent of users to the installation of cookies used for purposes other than purely technical.

13.2 Categories:

a) Technical cookies.

Technical cookies are those used only for navigation and to facilitate access and use of the site by the user. Technical cookies are essential for example to access Google or Facebook without having to log in to all sessions.
They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies that guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website. They can in turn 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 operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
- functionality cookies that allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

b) Profiling cookies.

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles related to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net. Because of the particular invasiveness that such devices can have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation requires the user to be adequately informed about their use and express their valid consent.

13.3 How cookies are approved.

For the installation of technical cookies no consent is required while profiling cookies can be installed on the user’s terminal only after the latter has given consent following simplified disclosure.
By connecting for the first time to the website, the user must immediately display a banner containing brief information, the request for consent and a link to the more extensive information on what are profiling cookies and on the use that is done on the site.
Furthermore, the banner must be of such a size as to constitute a perceptible discontinuity in the use of the web page contents and specify that the site uses profiling cookies also from third parties (when this happens), that in the extended disclosure it is possible to deny the consent to any installation of any cookies, the indication that the continuation of navigation through access to another area of the site or selection of an element of the same entails the provision of consent to the use of cookies. The banner must be able to be deleted only with an active action by the user.

13.4 Cookies used on the site.

For maximum transparency, we list below a series of technical cookies and cases of specific operations on the site:

• cookies directly implanted in the user’s / contractor’s terminal (which will not be used for further purposes) such as session cookies used for online reservations on the site, authentication cookies, personalization cookies (for example for the choice of browsing language); these cookies remain active only for the duration of the session.

• cookies used to statistically analyze accesses / visits to the site (so-called “analitycs” cookies) that only pursue statistical purposes (and not even profiling or marketing) and collect information in aggregate form without the possibility of identifying the individual user. In these cases, since the current legislation requires that for analytics cookies the person concerned is provided with a clear and adequate indication of the simple ways to oppose their system (including any anonymous display of the cookies themselves). The duration of analytics session cookies is * minutes.

13.5 How to deactivate cookies.

Most browsers allow you to delete cookies from your computer’s hard drive, block acceptance of cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
Therefore, for the removal of cookies, we invite the user to follow the instructions on the dedicated pages of the various browsers:
Interenet explorer:
Safari: (verification by the site operator)

13.6 Disabling cookies.

If the user blocks or deletes a cookie, it may be impossible to restore preferences or custom settings previously specified and the ability of the site to personalize the user experience will be limited.
