Extended information on the use of cookies

Cookies are short text strings that sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser) where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites on subsequent visits by the same user. During site navigation, the user's terminal may also receive cookies sent by different sites or web servers (third party sites), on which elements (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site the user is visiting may reside.
Cookies belong to two macro-categories: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

a. Technical cookies
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent that it is strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information company service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service".
They are not used for other purposes and are usually installed by the owner or operator of the website. They may be divided into navigation cookies or session cookies to guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (making it possible, for example, to make a purchase or log in to access reserved areas); analytic cookies, similar to technical cookies in cases where they are used directly by the site operator to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the site; functionality cookies which allow the user to navigate on the basis of a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the user.
Installation of these cookies does NOT require the prior consent of users.

b. Profiling cookies
The purpose of profiling cookies is to create user profiles. They are used for sending advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user as he surfs the net. By virtue of the particular invasiveness of these devices in matters of user privacy, European, Italian and San Marino law requires the user to be properly informed on the use of such cookies and express his consent.
Installation of these cookies requires the prior consent of users.

This site does NOT use profiling cookies.
This site only uses technical cookies for the single session so as to keep user preferences and they are not shared with third parties.
