Cookie Policy

Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored and retransmitted to the same website on the next visit.

Cookies can be technical, analytics and for profiling.


Technical cookies aid navigation or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for additional purposes and are usually installed directly by the Data Controller of the website. They can only be used subject to prior notice; however, it is not necessary to receive the prior consent of the person concerned (who may in any event object subsequently to the use of cookies in the ways described below) nor notify the Supervisory Authority in advance.


Analytics cookies are not “technical” cookies but can be similar to technical cookies only if used for the purposes of the optimisation of the website directly by the provider of the website, which can collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the website. In many cases, websites use, merely for statistical purposes, analytics cookies created and made available by third parties (for example Google). In these cases, the Supervisory Authority deems that the aforementioned websites are not subject to the obligations and fulfilments laid down by the regulations (first notifying the Supervisory Authority) as long as they adopt suitable instruments for reducing the identification potential of the analytics cookies that they use (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP address). Under these conditions, the same rules apply to analytics cookies as technical cookies, in terms of notice and the absence of the requirement for the prior consent of the persons concerned.


Profiling cookies are used to track the user’s navigation on the internet and create profiles on their tastes, attitudes, choices etc. With these cookies, advertising messages can be transmitted to the user’s terminal in line with the preferences already displayed by the same user in their online navigation. In this case, the website provider must: adopt a banner of the kind proposed by the Supervisory Authority under the Provision 8.5.2014 and attachments; provide an advisory to the person concerned; request the prior consent of the person concerned; give notice of the processing to the Supervisory Authority.
