Cookies are small text files which the sites visited by the user send directly to the user’s computer, where they are memorized to be then retransmitted to the sites themselves on the same user’s next visit (so-called first-party cookies). When surfing a site, the user may receive on his computer also cookies of sites or of different web servers (so-called third-party cookies); this occurs because the web site visited may contain elements like images, maps, and sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on different services other than those on which the page requested is found. In other words, these are cookies that are set on a web site other than the one actually visited.

The duration of the cookies may be limited to a single surfing session on the browser (so-called session cookies), and in this case automatically deactivate when the visitor closes the browser; or they may also have a preset expiry, and in this case, will remain memorized and active in the user’s hard disk up to the given expiry date, continuing to gather information during the various surfing sessions on the browser (so-called permanent cookies).

The cookies are used for different functions. Some are necessary to allow you to surf on the Site and use its features (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether or not in aggregate form, on the users that access the Site and on how the Site is used (so-called monitoring or analytical cookies). Lastly, they are used to track a consumer profile of the user and allow him/her to view advertisements on the Site, which may be interesting and in line with the user’s taste and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).

To learn more in detail about these different categories of cookies, please continue reading this circular. Discover how they work and their purposes, and freely choose whether to consent or block their usage.


These are cookies installed directly by the site visited. The technical cookies serve to carry out the surfing or to furnish a service requested by the user. They are not used for further aims and are usually installed directly by the web site controller. Without turning to such cookies, some operations could not be done or would be more complex and/or less safe, like for example the activities for which the cookies, which allow to carry out and maintain the user identification in the session, are indispensable.

Analytical cookies are necessary to gather user information and statistics and help to assess the surfing experience. Without using these cookies, the site owner cannot gather information and feedback regarding the surfing, which would be useful in improving future experiences.
