  1. Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit it. Cookies are stored through your web browser, based on your settings and preferences. Technologies of this type, such as web beacons, clear GIFs, software development kits (SDKs) and all types of local storage introduced through HTML5, can be used to provide basic functionality and to collect information on your browsing experience and use.

There are various types of cookies, based on their characteristics and use. While some cookies and tracking technologies are strictly necessary to navigate a website (for example, cookies that remember your preferences and settings; or cookies that keep your account logged in), others need your consent to be installed (for instance, to enable you to receive information about other products and services, or to improve your navigation experience).

Technical and Analytics cookies

Technical cookies do not need your consent and include:

  • Session cookies which are necessary for the proper operation of a website. They are called as such because their duration is strictly limited to the work session (and are deleted after users close their browser).
  • Analytics cookies which are used directly by the website owner to collect aggregate data on the number of visitors and how they interact with the website to improve its services. These cookies are not deleted after users close their browser but are retained by the device until a pre-defined expiration date or until they are deleted. Please consider that third party analytics cookies may require your prior consent for being installed.
  • Functional cookies which help the website remember users’ choices and settings such as language or privacy preferences.

We use a functional cookie that allows the website to remember your cookie preferences. We also use Google Analytics, which uses third party cookies as explained below.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are aimed at tracking users’ online behavior and creating user profiles (for example, considering users’ choices or preferences) to send marketing communications in line with the preferences shown by users while navigating the web or evaluate the effectiveness of our web marketing campaigns. Profiling cookies and the processing of the users’ personal data that derives from them is optional, meaning that they require your consent. When installed by third parties without safeguards aimed at minimizing the processing of your data, analytics cookies are comparable with profiling cookies, meaning that you need to consent to these too.

We use a first party profiling cookie to record your activities within the website and evaluate the effectiveness of our web marketing campaigns. The website also hosts third-party cookies (including profiling cookies), as explained below.

Third-party cookies

So-called third-party cookies are set by external providers. This is because a website may feature certain elements (images, sounds, specific links to sites located in another domain, etc.) installing third-party cookies residing in a different server.

Our website uses profiling and analytics cookies managed by external organizations. The data collected by these third parties is governed by their own specific privacy policies, terms and conditions, or cookie policies to which we have no control over.

Since our website hosts third-party analytics and profiling cookies, you will be prompted to consent to such third-party cookies when landing on our website for the first time, via a specific cookie banner.

You can manage and delete these third-party cookies at any time by accessing the third-party websites listed in the table below.
