- technical cookies: these are necessary for correct functioning of a website and to permit browsing by the user; without these the user may not be able to visualise the pages correctly or to use some services. These cookies include “analytics cookies”, whose aim is the performance of statistics on the Website’s usage;
- Profiling, or “targeting” cookies: these are used for creating user profiles to send advertising messages in line with preferences shown by the user during browsing.
Cookies, whether “technical” or “profiling”, can also be classified as:
• “session” cookies, which are deleted immediately on closing of the browser;
• “persistent” cookies, which remain in the browser for a determinate period of time; these are used, for example, to recognise the device which connects to a website, facilitating user authentication operations;
• “own” cookies, generated and managed directly by the operator of the website on which the user is browsing;
• “third party” cookies, generated and operated by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing.
The Website uses “technical” and “profiling” cookies, and in particular the following types of cookie:
(i) own session or persistent cookies, necessary to allow browsing on the Website, for the purpose of internal security and systems administration;
(ii) own session or persistent “analytics” cookies, used to perform statistics on the Website’s usage by means of the Google Analytics service, supplied by Google. With this service, the Company may receive statistical information about accesses and visits to the Website by users. By means of a cookie “pair” (composed of a persistent and a session cookie, the latter of which expires when the browser is closed), Google Analytics makes available to the Company a register with the browsing start and end time. Google Analytics also makes information regarding users’ age range, gender, geographical region, last visited Site etc., available to the Company. It is possible to prevent Google from collecting and processing data with cookies by downloading a browser plug-in at the address: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en . We would like to clarify that Google does not make available to the Company any information about the identity of those visiting our Website, nor will the Company provide any such information to Google; nevertheless, in some circumstances the Company may be able to associate the aggregate information supplied by Google Analytics with other information it has lawfully collected (e.g., information about log-in to restricted access areas which may be available to the Website);
