Cookies: what are the benefits for users
This disclosure describes in a specific and analytical way the different types of cookies used on our website and their purposes, and indicates, by category, (Technical, Preferences, Statistics, Social Networking, Others), how users can select or deselect cookies.
We use first-party cookies to allow the user to navigate between pages more efficiently and improve browsing experience, and third-party cookies set by a website other than the one you are currently on.
Cookies help us to:
Consent can be given by scrolling on the page and/or accessing other sections of the website by clicking on the links on the web page below the banner itself (follow up).
If users wish to give consent for only some types of cookies, they should simply click on the “View details“ link. The banner will expand to show a detailed list of all the cookies used, divided into categories by their different purposes. To refuse any category of cookie, deselect the flag next to its name.
The website will not install any cookies until you give your consent.
Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of “ carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of a service of the company of the information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, in order to deliver said service” (see art. 122 paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). Technical cookies can be divided into different types:
Session cookies allow the website to link a user’s actions during a browser session (movement from page to page, for example) to make the browsing experience faster.
One example are the cookies used to view specific pages reserved to registered users only, which allow them not to have to authenticate for every page visited.
Functionality cookies record information about choices you have made (your choice of language, for example) and facilitate the use of certain services.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES
IP Anonymisation in Google Analytics
Google uses its own cookies to track visitors interactions. These cookies are used to store informations, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
The organisation has provided the IP address anonymisation feature, so that you are not identifiable by Google.
This feature in Google Analytics allows us to anonymize users’ IP addresses by setting the last octet of IPv4 visitor IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeros in the final part of IP.
User’s IP address 126.96.36.199 | Anonymized IP address 188.8.131.52
This anonymization process takes place during the transmission of data to Google systems. Therefore, the storage of data in memory and the subsequent processing occur without full IP address ever been written by Google.
If this procedure is not implemented, Google reserves the right to collect identifying information from users and process them for its different purposes, for example proposing targeted advertising content.
As data processing by both the Holder and the third party is thus completely anonymous, it is not necessary to require specific consent from users and, least of all, to report the processing to the Competition Authority.

AddThis and Social Plug-in
This website uses AddThis, which allows users to add and manage the buttons of some social networks, so as to allow users to share content and/or express an interest in content on various social platforms.
In order for you to use these share buttons AddThis, which offers the service, has to install certain cookies, including profiling cookies (e.g.: for real time updating of counters, to retain histories of users of this widget, to record geolocation at the state level, to categorise users, and to allow customized online advertising).
Instructions on how to deactivate AddThis can be found at this address: http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out.
Once this cookie is installed, Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Linkedin will automatically set their own cookies.
These cookies are part of the page visited and are generated directly by those sites and integrated into pages of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is to share content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites operated by third parties.
Our website contains pages with videos embedded through the YouTube platform. This tool installs cookies to optimize visitors’ experience while watching videos, by calculating users’ bandwidth and monitoring their display settings.
The management of information collected by “third parties” is regulated by the related disclosures (please refer to them, below). To ensure greater transparency and convenience, here are the web addresses of the different disclosures and of instructions for managing related cookies:

Duration of Cookies
Some cookies remain active only until you close the browser or execute the logout command. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and they are also available in subsequent visits by the user.
These cookies are called persistent and their duration is fixed by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
We use persistent cookies, except for certain information we store exclusively for technical purposes.
It should also be noted that, in line with what is stated by the Guarantor as regards retention of personal data for profiling purposes, profiling cookies will not continue stored on a user’s device for longer than 12 months.
Cookiebot remembers the user’s consent for 12 months, after which the banner will automatically pop up for the user to renew consent.
Cookie management choices may be modified at any time by following the instructions in item a) of the previous section of this policy.
