General information about cookies


Cookies are small text strings (letters and/or numbers) that websites visited by a user send to the browser, in which they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites the next time the user visits.

Cookies are stored by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone etc.).

While browsing a website, some elements from other websites (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) may be present. In these cases, users could also receive cookies sent by the latter (so-called “third party cookies”) on their terminal.

Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons and transparent GIFs, can be used to gather information on user behaviour and on the use of services. In the next section of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies”.


Cookies are classified according to their duration and the website that set them.


We believe that it is essential to provide users with information about the cookies that our website uses and the purposes for which they are used. The goal is threefold: to guarantee your privacy, to ensure ease of use and to optimise the development of our website. Below, we explain the main types of cookies and the purposes for which they are used.


Technical cookies


Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service.”

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into browsing or session cookies, which guarantee normal website browsing and use.


Session cookies are stored temporarily in the device memory while browsing a site, for example to keep track of the chosen language or authentication to access restricted areas. Session cookies remain stored on the device for a short period of time. They are, in fact, deleted as soon as the user closes the browser.


Persistent cookies save a file on the device for a long period of time. This type of cookie has an expiry date. Persistent cookies allow websites to remember information and settings for subsequent visits by users, thus making exploration quicker and more practical since, for example, it is no longer necessary to log in.

At the expiry date, the cookie is automatically deleted when logging in to the website that created it.


Functional cookies allow users to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.


Analytics cookies are similar to technical cookies in that they are used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate and anonymous form, regarding the number of users and how they visit the site.


No prior consent from users is required for the installation of any type of technical cookie.


Our site uses technical cookies.



Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles related to users and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by said users while browsing the internet. Due to the particularly invasive nature that such devices can have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation requires users to be adequately informed about their use.


By visiting the website, you may receive cookies both from the visited site (“proprietary”) and from sites managed by other organisations (“third party”). These cookies are linked to the services provided by third parties, such as the ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ buttons and monitor the effectiveness of advertising. The third party provides these services in exchange for information regarding user visits to our site. Even third-party cookie suppliers are required to comply with the relevant legislation. For this reason, we refer you to the links of the web pages of third-party sites, where users can find the consent forms for cookies and their related policies. In the event that these services are provided by indirect contacts with third parties, users must consult the sites of the subjects acting as intermediaries between us and the third parties themselves.


Our site uses profiling cookies.
