Cookies are small text files that web sites visited send to users’ computers (normally to the browsers), where they are stored to be retransmitted to the sites the next time the users visit them.

Cookies are used for various purposes: carrying out IT authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, etc.





This site uses so-called “technical” cookies, i.e. those only used in order to "carry out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or as is strictly necessary for the provider of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide that service" and in particular:

- navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the Web site and in particular: making a purchase, authentication for access to reserved areas. Without these cookies, the Web site would not operate correctly and we might be unable to provide the Web site with the services or functions you have specifically requested. 

- functionality cookies, which enable users to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase), in order to improve the service they are provided.  Without these cookies, the Web site would not operate correctly and we might be unable to provide the Web site with the services or functions you have specifically requested.

- analytics cookies, used by the Controller to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the Web site; for example, these cookies show us which are the most visited pages on the Web site and help us to notice any difficulties experienced by visitors.

The cookies are not used for other purposes.

No users’ personal data is acquired in this respect by the Web site. Cookies are not used for the transmission of information of a personal nature.

(*) Google Analytics


This Web site uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. to generate statistics on the use of the Web site.

Google Analytics uses "cookies" that are placed on your computer to analyze the use of the Web site on behalf of users. The information generated by the cookie on the use of the Web site (including the IP address) is transmitted by the user’s browser to Google, headquartered in 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States, and stored in its servers.

Google Analytics collects information in an anonymous manner, without identifying individual visitors. Browsers do not share Google Analytics proprietary cookies among the various dominions. Google Analytics does not report information regarding effective addresses: Google Analytics transmits information in such a way that only part of the IP address is used for geolocation, rather than the entire address, using a method known as IP masking.

Google will use this information for the purpose of tracing and evaluating the use of the Web site, compiling reports on Web site activity and providing other services to the controller relating to website activity,  connection methods (mobile, pc, browser used etc) and methods for searching and reaching the site’s pages. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

It is possible to disable Google Analytics cookies, using the opt-out add-on provided by Google for the major browsers. It will thus be possible to use the online services anonymously.

This Web site also uses “Social Plugins” (hereafter indicated as buttons) of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These buttons are disabled by default, i.e. do not send data to the respective social networks without your consent.

To enable the buttons, it is sufficient to click on them. The button remains enabled until it is disabled again and its cookies deleted. After enabling, a direct connection is established with the server of the relative social network. The content associated with the buttons is thus transmitted directly from the social networks to your browser and connected by it to the Web page.

To see the purpose and extent of the collection and processing/use of data carried out by the social networks, in which we are not in any way involved, users can access the notices and privacy policies available on the social networks’ web sites.

When a button is enabled, the relative social network can find a series of data independently from your interaction with the button itself. If you have carried out log-in procedure to a social network, it can assign your visit to this Web page to your user profile.





Users’ privacy is essentially guaranteed by the fact that AT ANY TIME WHATSOEVER they can:

- configure their browser in order to accept all cookies, refuse them all, or receive an alert message whenever one is sent;

- cancel one, some or all cookies;

- visit the intermediary privacy policy on http://www.sizmek.com/privacy-policy/;

- choose which cookies you want to accept from http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/le-tue-scelte.
