Cookie policy





When you visit our website accessible through the url we collect information about you through cookies or similar technologies. Please read this policy carefully to learn more about the way we process your information and what rights you have.


What are the Cookies?

Cookies are small-sized files consisting of letters and numbers that will be stored on a user’s computer, mobile device or other equipment from which the internet is accessed. Cookies allow us to provide you with a better browsing experience and a faster response on our website. Any additional information, including the one allowing us to send you advertisements or analyse the website audience, will only be stored based on your prior consent to be expressed by indicating your option within the cookie banner displayed when accessing our website, or by any of the means specified below.

The cookies can be placed for various purposes. In general, the main categories of cookies, organised by purpose, are: necessary, audience (analytics), preference and marketing.

The cookies necessary for the operation of a website may be placed without the prior consent of the users, according to the legislation. Disabling the necessary cookies may result in malfunctioning or inability to use a particular website.

We recommend that you read the following information carefully to better understand the types of cookies we use and how you can customize the use of cookies based on your preferences.


What categories of cookies do we use?

Our website may use both cookies that do not require your consent to be downloaded to your device and cookies that can only be downloaded with your prior consent. The cookies are also distinguished according to the domain that places them, namely first-party cookies (cookies placed by us) and third-party cookies (cookies placed by third parties).

A) Necessary cookies: (DO NOT require your prior consent): are necessary for the operation of the website and allow you to access relevant elements (navigation cookies) – these are mainly session cookies. We may also use cookies for security purposes (e.g., preventing repeated visits) and functional cookies, which allow us to save your preferences and settings and improve your browsing experience on our website. In order to make sure that these cookies work properly, as well as to make sure that your preferences are recorded, these cookies will not be deleted when you finish the browsing. However, these cookies will have a period of validity (no longer than 2 years), after which they will be automatically deactivated. These cookies and the information contained in them will not be used for purposes other than those described above. The setting of necessary cookies does not require the collection of your prior consent – we set them automatically on your device when you access the website. You can decide to disable the cookies any time by changing the settings of the relevant browser. However, this may prevent you from viewing the website correctly.

B) Marketing cookies, which may include:

  • Profiling cookies for advertising purposes: they create user profiles for advertisements that correspond to the users’ browsing preferences.
  • Retargeting cookies: they are used to serve advertisements for products that are similar to those you are interested in (e.g., displaying pages about products you have visited on our website when you navigate to affiliate websites) or measuring the effectiveness of marketing campaigns (run by us or third parties).
  • Social-media cookies: Furthermore, our website may allow certain social networks (e.g., Facebook, Youtube) to set their own cookies via their plug-ins. These cookies are managed directly by third parties and may also be used to serve ads that are consistent with your preferences when you browse other websites.C)Analytical (statistical) cookies: they record your choices and activity on our website in order for us to perform statistical analyses, for us or for third parties, by tracking your preferences and browsing behaviour, and to serve ads tailored to you.

C) Analytical (statistical) and marketing cookies are set only based on your choices. For this reason, when you access our website, a special banner is displayed that gives you the opportunity to opt-in to the categories of cookies that our website installs on your devices (except for the necessary ones, which are installed automatically when you access the website).

Once you have opted in, the cookie banner will disappear. We will track your choice/consent (if any) via a specific technical cookie. As a consequence, the cookie banner will no longer be displayed if you visit our website again in the future. Should you decide to delete some cookies with technical functionality, please note that we will lose track of your choices/consent and as such the cookie banner will be shown again on your next visit to our website.

Cookie deletion

In general, an application used to access the web pages allows cookies to be saved on the terminal by default. These settings can be changed in such a way that the automatic management of Cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed each time Cookies are sent to his/her terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and modalities of managing the Cookies can be found in the settings area of the application (web browser). Limiting the use of Cookies may affect certain functionalities on the web page.


Security and privacy

The cookies use plain text formats. They are not built from pieces of code so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate themselves again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

The browsers generally have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Please be aware that disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/see online advertising, only that that advertising will not be tailored to your preferences.

All browsers should offer the possibility to change the cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be useful, otherwise you can use your browser’s “help” option for more details.
