1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files sent to the user by the websites they visit. They are stored on the computer’s hard disk, thus allowing the website to recognise users and store certain information about them, in order to allow or improve the service offered. There are different types of cookies. Some are necessary to browse the website, others are used for different purposes, such as ensuring internal security, administering the system, performing statistical analysis, understanding which sections of the website most affect users or offering a personalised visit of the website. The website uses technical and non-profiling cookies. The above relate to both the user’s computer and any other device that the user can use to access to the website.
Technical cookies are cookies used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent that is strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service, explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, to provide such service. They are not used for any other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. They can be split into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and functioning of the website (allowing you to make a purchase or authenticate yourself to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website; functional cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase), in order to improve the service provided.
