These are persistent cookies, which remain on your computer even after you close your browser until the expiry date set for each cookie (typically two months to two years) or until you delete them.

As provided for by the privacy regulations in force, your prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies (Art. 122 of the Privacy Code). You are of course free to block the installation of technical cookies in the manner indicated in paragraph 4 below.

2. What are tracking or "analytics" cookies and how do they work?

Analytics cookies are used on the Site to collect statistical information, in aggregate or non-aggregate form, on the number of users accessing the Site and how they visit the Site.

The analytics cookies on this Site are not installed directly by the Company but by third parties who act as independent data controllers.

As required by current privacy legislation, your prior consent is required for the installation of third-party analytics cookies (Art. 6 (1)(a) of the Regulation and Art. 122 of the Privacy Code), unless tools are adopted to reduce the identifying power of the cookies and the third parties do not cross-reference the information collected by the cookies with other information they already have. For this reason, when you access the Site, a special banner is displayed prominently, informing you that (i) third-party analytics cookies are used on the Site and that (ii) by closing the banner, scrolling down the home page or clicking on any element of the home page other than the banner, you consent to the use of cookies. Should you consent to the installation of cookies in this way, we will track your consent through a technical cookie. In this way, we will avoid displaying the cookie banner on your subsequent visits to the Site. Please note that if you delete this technical cookie from your browser in the manner set out in paragraph 4, let. (A) below, the trace of your consent will be lost and, therefore, during your next visit to the Site the cookie banner will be displayed again.

You are of course free to block the installation of analytics cookies at any time, without affecting your ability to visit the Site and enjoy its content in any way.

Below is a list of the analytics cookies currently used on the Site, with an indication of the link to the policy pages created by their developers to inform you on how to manage analytics cookies and easily opt-out of their use:

3. What are profiling cookies and how do they work? 

Profiling cookies are used to create a profile of you as a user, based on the preferences and tastes you have shown while browsing the Internet, and to display advertisements consistent with your profile. As required by current privacy legislation, your prior consent is required for the installation of such cookies. Should you consent to the installation of cookies in this way, we will track your consent through a technical cookie. This will ensure that we do not display the cookie banner on your subsequent visits to the Site. Please note that if you delete this technical cookie from your browser in the manner set out in paragraph 4 (A) below, the record of your consent will be lost and you will therefore see the cookie banner again on your next visit to the Site. Of course, you are free to block the installation of profiling cookies at any time, without affecting your ability to visit the Site and enjoy its contents in any way. If you decide to deactivate behavioural advertising, this does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising. All profiling cookies are installed by third parties who act as independent data controllers (third-party cookies). Here is a list of the third-party profiling cookies currently used on the Site. Please read the privacy policies of these third parties carefully so that you have all the necessary information about their profiling cookies and how to opt-out of their installation:

5. Is there anything else I need to know?

Personal data may be stored on servers operated by third parties (e.g. suppliers of IT systems) or may be managed by parties specialized in online advertising, who act as data controllers.
