COOKIE POLICY MOD.  1 For any clarification, information, exercise of the rights listed in this notice, please contact  email:
Please indicate in the subject line of your communication: “Website Cookie Request” 
The “WEBSITE’S PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION POLICY” is an integral part of the following “COOKIE POLICY”, including the rights that the user may assert by contacting the addresses already indicated. The policy may change as a result of the introduction of new legislation or as a result of changes to the website, so please visit this section periodically for updates.


Pursuant to EU Reg. 679/2016, as well as on the basis of the provisions established by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data with Measure 10 June 2021 no. 231 laying down “Guidelines cookies and other tracking tools”, with this statement the Data Controller provides its Cookie Policy. The purpose of the Cookie Policy is to provide the user with all the information relating to art. 13 – 14 of the GDPR, as well as to specifically and analytically describe the characteristics and purposes of the cookies installed on the website, with the possibility for the user to select/deselect individual cookies. Processing through the use of cookies takes place by automated means and the data retention period depends on the nature of the cookie used.

What are cookies? Cookies are strings of small codes that sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.), where they are stored in order to be retransmitted at each occurrence or subsequent access by the same user.

Why are they useful? Through the use of cookies, the website visited recognises the user’s device and this results in an improved browsing experience. Among the various purposes of cookies are to enable the user to navigate efficiently between the pages of the website, remember favourite sites, store language, etc.; cookies also help to ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to the user’s specific interests.

Classification of cookies. Cookies are classified into different types: 

in relation to duration, the cookie can be either session, i.e. automatically deleted when the browser is closed, or persistent, i.e. active until its expiry date or deletion by the user;

in relation to the origin, the cookie may be first-party, i.e. sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting, or third-party, i.e. sent to the browser from other sites and not from the site you are visiting.

in relation to the purpose, the cookie can be either technical or profiling. This classification deserves further analysis.

Technical cookies. It improves the user’s browsing experience. Indeed, without the use of technical cookies, some operations would be very complex or impossible to perform. These cookies – which may be first-party or third-party, session or permanent – do not require the user’s prior consent for their installation. Technical cookies are “strictly necessary” when they allow the website to be navigated effectively and exploit its essential features, such as allowing computer authentication or the storage of previous actions. By blocking the use of these cookies, the user’s browsing experience may be impaired. On the other hand, technical cookies are “functionality” cookies when they allow us to improve the browsing experience by storing the preferences expressed by the user, such as language, name, location. Blocking these cookies will not affect your browsing experience, however you will not be able to take advantage of these useful services. Technical cookies are “analytical” when they allow the collection of information on how users interact with the website, analysing the number of pages visited, the time spent on the website, the most visited pages and any other events that come up during browsing, such as any errors from the page visited. These cookies allow the owner of the website to obtain statistical data relating to navigation and allow the services offered to the user to be improved. Analytical cookies are of a technical nature – not of a profiling nature – only when the website owner has adopted suitable tools to reduce the identifying power of the analytical cookies used, by masking significant portions of the IP address. For the installation of technical cookies it is not necessary to collect prior consent from the user, therefore – if the website used only technical cookies – the data controller is not required to collect consent through the cookie banner. The extended information notice (the one the user is reading at this very moment), on the other hand, is mandatory.

Profiling cookies. It is only activated following the granting of consent by the user. Consent is given by clicking “OK” (or “continue”, etc.) on the banner on the homepage or other page of the same site. The purpose of the profiling cookie is to improve the services offered by the Controller as well as to select and send advertising based on the preferences and tastes expressed by the user while browsing. The use of profiling cookies to send targeted advertising does not imply the display of more advertisements nor will it hinder the browsing experience. In fact, by deactivating profiling cookies the user will only see generic advertising instead of advertisements in line with his or her interests. Profiling cookies are, for instance, third-party statistical-analytical cookies without IP masking and without data cross-referencing, or advertising, tracking or conversion cookies.


The following is a list of the different procedures, even alternatives to each other, that the user may observe for the management of cookies. By implementing the following procedures, the user will be able to select the desired cookies as well as deselect unwanted ones, either by default on his browser or after the installation of such cookies on his terminal equipment.

Facebook Pixel

The Facebook Pixel is a tool for collecting statistical data that is used by the data controller to monitor how the user interacts with the site or to measure the effectiveness of its advertising. The Pixel makes it possible to record the user’s behaviour (e.g. how many times a particular page is visited or the number of times it is accessed) and, in this way, the Data Controller can ‘reach’ the user in order to send him advertisements in line with his tastes and interests (through the Pixel, the Data Controller makes sure to show his advertisements to the right people, can create audience groups to which the advertisements are targeted, can exploit Facebok advertising tools).  The user data that are recorded by the Pixel are the referring URL, browser information and Facebook user ID. Personalised data may also be transmitted, but no personally identifiable confidential information.

The third party (i.e. Facebook) uses cookies, web beacons and other storage technologies to collect or retrieve information from this website or the Internet, and uses this information to provide measurement services and to define the recipients of entries.

If you wish to prevent your data from being stored, you must log out of your Facebook account before visiting this website. In the event that the user has already logged in to this website without the previous log-out procedure, the links to the third party’s privacy policy for handling their data are provided below:

Facebook Pixels fall into the category of profiling systems, as they allow the storage of the user’s tastes and interests, who may receive targeted advertising. 

Deactivating these systems will not affect the user’s browsing experience, but the user can no longer receive advertising in line with his interests and tastes.

The FB Pixel allows the user to receive targeted advertising on their Facebook profile but also on Instagram.
