  • technical browsing data pertaining to the IP address, to the identifying codes of the devices employed by the user to utilise the website or the services, to the characteristics of the browser and to the access times;
  • browsing data directed at profiling provided indirectly through utilisation of the service and obtained and analysed with the user’s consent;
  • common identifying data provided by the user (e.g. name, surname, email, telephone number, etc.) for the utilization of the products and of the services;

By means of statistic correlation algorithms, such information will be matched to the same information coming from other users to identify the common traits and group together similar ones within interest classes. By assigning your browser to an interest class, our systems will then be able to offer you contents that better suit your tastes and will present advertisements that better meet your needs and better address the interests of the advertisers, reducing the level of interference with utilisation.

Cookie Policy

Cookies are small aggregates of text stored locally in the temporary memory of your browser, and hence in your computer for periods of time that may vary according to the need, generally between a few hours and some years, with the exception of the profiling cookies, whose maximum duration is 365 calendar days.

Using the cookies, it is possible to record semi-permanently information about your preferences and other technical data that allow for easier browsing and greater ease of use and effectiveness of the site itself. For example, cookies can be used to determine whether a connection between your computer and our sites has already been carried out, to highlight changes or maintain log-in information. For your protection, only the cookie stored on your computer is identified.

To make your visit of our Website more convenient, we use cookies or equivalent computer codes for the presentation of our product assortment. We also make use of usability analysis tools that track user actions to help us understand how our sites are used and improve their functionality and design.


There are two families or types of cookies:

  • Those installed by the owner and data controller of the website, called first party cookies, and
  • Cookies installed by “third parties” (third party cookies).

The responsibility and the management of first party cookies rest directly with the Data Controller.

The responsibility and the management of third-party cookies are demanded to the respective data controllers who must offer appropriate mechanisms for consent refusal in their privacy policy.

There may be six different types of cookies on this website or product:

  1. Technical, session and analytics Cookies

These cookies are necessary for the correct operation of the site. They are used to manage site access operations (login), to store configuration preferences (where available), or to integrate any plug‑in required for viewing specific content.

Cookies used for statistical and performance analysis are equally considered to be technical cookies, provided that they are configured to collect data in an aggregate and anonymous form, providing an overview of the performance of the sites and content.

  1. Traffic and performance analysis cookies

These cookies enable us to know in what way visitors use the website, what contents they access and what regions they come from, allowing us to assess and improve the operation and promote the production of contents that better meet our users’ information needs. These cookies require the consent of the users, who can opt out directly with the respective controllers.

  1. Profiling cookies for marketing and advertising purposes

These cookies are used to deliver advertising content within a site or application. These cookies are used, for example, to track the position of the advertisement and verify if a user has already seen the advertising message, but also to follow the users while they are browsing, to define their profile and present advertising related to their personal interests and socio-demographic characteristics.

  1. Widgets and other tools for interconnection with external sites and functions

These cookies are often associated with a graphic element on the website, such as an action button or a specific logo (e.g.: the Facebook “like” button) and used to integrate the functions of other sites within the one you are browsing. These cookies are the responsibility of their Data Controllers and you can object to their use directly on the cookie policy pages of the related operator.

  1. Tracking pixels or web beacons

These are application scripts and/or images that do not interfere with the look of the site but allow a third party to track the traffic trend. For example, they are used by advertisers to independently measure the performance of an advertising campaign and directly collect information that would not be available otherwise. These cookies are also subject to the user’s consent and can be refused by means of opt-out selectors available in the cookie policy pages of their respective controllers.

  1. Usability tools

These are application-coded features that allow the website owner to analyse how users interact with the contents and the features of a website in order to verify its ease of use, design quality and as an aid for planning improvement changes. These scripts are configured to avoid capturing any elements typed by the user that would undermine their privacy and are subject to explicit consent. Refusal to consent, when present in the pages of this site, is managed directly by the Data Controller.


The Controller tries to limit the use of cookies to what is strictly necessary for the provision of the services of this and its other sites and products. In particular, we have the cookies indicated in the following paragraphs.

  2. Technical, session and analytics cookies
  • Nielsen NetRatings (Audiweb) for official access statistics
  • Adobe Omniture for internal access and traffic statistics
  • Google Analytics for internal‑use access and traffic statistics

The cookies listed under this paragraph are subject to your consent. You can consult the list and give your consent in a simplified way in the manner indicated in the information banner that you saw the first time you accessed this site, or selectively by clicking the button below.

We will not use any cookie category other than those strictly required for the purposes set out in the cookie policy, and for proper site operation, with absolute respect for your expressed consent, and taking upon ourselves the obligation to communicate your will – expressed by accepting or denying consent – to our partners, for them to respect it while you are browsing this site.

For all cookies installed by third parties unknown to the Controller for which personal data is processed, subject to your prior consent, also through this website, you can exercise your right to object via the following website:

If you have further questions or concerns about the use of cookies, you can always take action to prevent them from being set and read, for example by changing the privacy settings in your browser.

Because each browser – and often different versions of the same browser – may differ significantly from each other, if you prefer to act independently using your browser preferences, you can find detailed information about the necessary procedure in your browser’s Help menu. For an overview of how to act for the most common browsers, please visit:


Cookies managed directly by the Controller have a maximum duration of 365 days, barring any voluntary renewals you carry out by reiterating consent.

The profiling cookies managed by the Controller are anonymous. Upon expiry, they remain within statistical systems and profiling platforms exclusively for general statistical purposes, in aggregate form, and can no longer be traced back to your browser.

The duration of cookies managed by third parties is indicated in the respective Cookie Policies.
