Privacy & Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves to your device (for example, your computer, tablet, smartphone) while you are browsing. Thanks to cookies, the website remembers what you have done and your preferences (for example, authentication for reserved areas, the language selected or other viewing settings) so that you not have to enter them again when you return to the website or browse between one page and another. Cookies are also used, for example, to verify website visits by new or past visitors and to save some, anonymous and non-personal, information about them regarding how they have browsed the pages (entry and exit links, browsing between pages, time spent on the website, etc.).
By using our website and clicking “Accept all cookies”, you are accepting for “proprietary” and “third-party” cookies to be installed on your device, which are indicated in the “The types of cookies we use” table that is found in this policy.

Types of cookies
Cookies are separated into 5 categories: Technical/Essential, Functional, Analytical, Advertising/Marketing and Additional Functions. The website may not use all the cookie categories described below, but usually only those shown in the “The types of cookies we use” table (for every cookie you can see the category it belongs to).
These are essential for the correct functioning of the website’s pages and cannot be deactivated. Without these cookies, the browsing experience on the website would be compromised to the extent that it could not be used correctly.
These cookies allow the website, at your express request, to recognise you on subsequent visits so that you do not have to enter your data every time. Functional cookies are not indispensable for the functioning of the website but improve the browsing experience and quality. All other additional functions of the website are part of this category (for example, boxes for social network streams, comments via external services, social sharing buttons, live chat, etc.). These cookies are required to allow your social media account to interact with our website. For example, they allow you to express what you like and share it with your friends on social media. Deactivating these elements (and the consequent cookies) will not affect the use of the website; quite simply, you will not be able to use the deactivated functions. Some tools from social networks (which are usually installed with blocks of code inserted into the hosting website pages) may use third-party cookies installed by social networks themselves (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.); the website does not share any information with these widgets.
Our pages use third-party performance cookies from Google Analytics (a service offered by Google) to allow us to examine visitor behaviour anonymously while they are using the website and thereby improve its usability and the user experience.
Advertising cookies are installed to show advertising content targeted at the interests of the person. This type of cookie works in collaboration with third-party websites (for example, via remarketing you may see a different website, the advertising of a website you have visited previously) and can track past browsing history on the pages present on different domains. This type of cookie usually tracks your IP address, as well as other information, some of which many be personal in nature.
