This website and the communications generated upon use and/or registration on this website, such as promotional emails, may contain electronic images known as "web beacons". Web beacons usually operate in connection with cookies and we may use them with cookies for the purposes of (for example):

Italian law (article 122 of the Legislative Decree 196/03) enshrined a European Directive in our legal system that lays down the obligation on providers of websites that use cookies or other monitoring technologies to inform the user about the types of any cookies used by the website.

The Provision of the Personal Data Protection Authority no. 229 of 8 May 2014, published in the Official Gazette on 3 June 2014, classified cookies under two macro-categories:

a. Technical cookies.

Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the degree strictly necessary for a supplier of a service of an information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or by the user in order to deliver this service" (see article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code).

They are not used for other purposes and are usually installed directly by the owner or provider of the website. They can be divided into navigation or “session” cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (enabling, for example, a purchase to be made or authentication to be carried out in order to access restricted areas); analytic cookies, similar to technical cookies, which are used directly by the website provider to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website; and functionality cookies, that enable the user to navigate on the basis of a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) for the purpose of improving the service delivered.

The user’s consent in advance is required for these cookies to be installed.

b. Profiling cookies.

Profiling cookies are intended to create profiles of the user and are used for the purpose of sending advertising messages in line with the preferences displayed while navigating the internet. Due to the invasive nature these devices may have in the user’s private sphere, European and Italian regulations lay down that the user must be adequately informed about their use and give their consent.

In reference to these cookies, article 122 of the Code lays down that “the storage of information in the equipment of a contracting party or a user, or access to information already stored, is only permitted on condition that the user has given his/her consent after having been informed with the simplified procedures referred to in article 13, paragraph 3” (article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). 

In the same Provision, the Authority also categorised cookies according to the subject who acts as Data Controller of the personal data collected by cookies, distinguishing between first-party and third-party cookies.

1. First-party cookies.

These are cookies managed by the owner of the website. For these cookies, the obligation to inform users is the responsibility of the owner of the website. The latter is also obliged to indicate the methods by which cookies can be blocked.

2. Third-party cookies.

These cookies are managed by a third party, other than the owner of the website. For these cookies, the obligation to inform the user and indicate the methods by which cookies can be blocked is the responsibility of the third party, while the owner of the website is obliged to include on the website a link to the third-party website, where these elements are available.

For both types of cookies (first-party or third-party), should the cookie be a profiling cookie, consent must be obtained by means of the appropriate banner on the website's home page.


A list of all the cookies used by this Website is given below this Cookie Policy.

The first group lists the so-called technical cookies, the use of which does not require the user’s consent.

The second group lists the profiling cookies, should these be used on this Website.

For both groups, the following information is given for each type of cookie:

  • Name of the cookie<
  • Function carried out by the cookie<
  • An indication of whether the cookie is the first-party or third-party kind
  • If the cookie is the first-party kind, an indication of the methods of blocking it<
  • If the cookie is the third-party cookie, an indication of the link by which it is possible to reach the third-party website where the third-party’s cookie policy is given regarding the processing carried out on personal data collected by means of the cookie, along with the methods of blocking the cookie

It is made known that any blockage of technical cookies could compromise the functionality of this Website.


This website may contain links or references to access other Websites. The Company does not control the cookies / monitoring technologies of other Websites, to which this Cookie Policy does not apply. Italian legislation (article 122 of the Legislative Decree 196/03) enshrined a European Directive in our legal system that imposes the obligation on the providers of websites that use cookies or other monitoring technologies to inform the user about the types of any cookies used and request the user's consent in advance to the sending of these cookies to the user's computer terminal and/or to access the information stored in it.

The only exceptions to the requirement for consent are those cookies that are strictly necessary (i) for the management of the website or (ii) to deliver services expressly requested by the user.
