Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the user's consent. These cookies are essential to allow you to browse a website and use all its features. Without these cookies, which are absolutely necessary, a website could not provide certain services or functions and browsing would not be as easy as it should be. A cookie of this type is also used to store a user's decision on the use of cookies on the website.

This category also includes performance cookies, which are sometimes also called analytics cookies. These are cookies that collect information about the use a user makes of a website and that allow it to improve its functioning. For example, performance cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow us to check which are the recurring patterns of use of a website, help us understand every difficulty that the user encounters in using and show the effectiveness of advertising which is published on the site.

Technical cookies are essential and cannot be disabled using the functions of this website. In general, cookies can be turned off completely in your browser at any time.


Profiling cookies

Other cookies can be used to monitor and profile users during browsing, to study their movements and web browsing or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending targeted services and advertising custom.

We speak in this case of profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user's free informed consent pursuant to art. 23 of Legislative Decree 196/2003 and pursuant to the European Regulation (GDPR) n. 679/2016.
