  1. What are cookies?

Cookies are short pieces of text (letters and/or numbers) sent by the websites visited by the user to the terminal of the same (usually to the browser), where they are stored to be retransmitted to the same websites the next time the user visit them. Cookies are stored by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone) based on the user’s preferences. A cookie cannot recall any other data from the user’s hard disk, or transmit computer viruses or acquire e-mail addresses. A few functions of cookies can be performed by other technologies. For example, “web beacons” (also known as pixel tag, web bug or gif), tracking URL or SDK (software development kits). A web beacon is a small graphic object, often consisting of one single pixel that arrives on the user’s computer as part of a webpage, an app, an ad, or through an e-mail in HTML format. Pixels can be used to collect information on the user’s device, such as type, operating system, IP address and time of the visit. They are also used to place and read cookies in the user’s browser. Tracking URLs are used to determine the site, from which the visit of the user to a certain other site originated. SDKs, lastly, are code snippets included in apps, which function like cookies and web beacons. In this Cookie Policy, the word ‘cookie’ is intended to mean both cookies in strict sense, and all similar technologies.

  1. Classification of cookies

Cookies may be first-party or third-party cookies. “First-partycookies are those that report as domain the website to which they refer, whereas “third-party” cookies are related to external domains. Third-party cookies are in fact always added by a “third party”, not managed by the website to which they refer. Such parties may also add first-party cookies, by storing their own cookies on the domain of the website to which they refer. The so-called “Flash cookies” (Local Shared Objects) are used in Adobe Flash Player to provide certain contents, such as video clips or animations, in order to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the user’s device, but are managed through another interface, not the one provided by the browser used. As regards the nature of cookies, they are of several types: technical cookies are used for the only purpose of “transmitting an electronic communication or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service expressly requested by a subscriber or user to provide such service” (art. 122, subsec. 1, of the Code on personal data protection, d.lgs. [Legislative Decree] 2003/196, hereinafter “Privacy Code”). They are not used for any other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager. These technical cookies, in turn, can be subdivided into: (i) navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the relevant website (by permitting, for instance, to complete a purchase or log in to access reserved areas); they are actually necessary for the proper operation of the website. (ii) Cookie analytics are equalised to technical cookies if used directly by the website manager to collect information in aggregate form regarding the number of users and how they visit the website, in order to improve the website performance. (iii) Functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse the website taking into account a series or criteria previously selected (e.g. language) in order to improve the service provided to the user. For the installation of these cookies, the consent of users is not required. Users are therefore free to block the installation of technical cookies by changing the settings of their browser (see below, “Cookie management”). It should be considered, however, that by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently removing them, the user may be prevented, entirely or in part, from accessing or using all or part of the relevant website, enabling or disabling certain functions or receiving certain services. As to the nature of cookies, in addition to the mentioned technical cookies, there are the profiling cookies. Profiling cookies aim to create user profiles and are used to send ads in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the web. For the use of profiling cookies, user consent is required. In particular, the user can authorise or refuse consent for the installation of the cookies through the options provided in the relevant section (see below, “Cookie management”). In case of third-party cookies, the site to which they refer has not a direct control over the single cookies and cannot verify them (directly install or delete them). The user, however, can manage such cookies through the browser settings (see below “Cookie management”) or directly by following the instructions indicated in the third-party website.
