Cookie Policy

Cookies are small text strings sent by the website and stored by your browser on your computer's hard disk. On our website we use "technical" cookies, an "Third-party" cookies.

Technical cookies

"Technical" cookies are used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service" (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). They are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator and are divided into:
  • Browsing or session cookies required for normal browsing and use of the website (such as to make a purchase or to logon to reserved areas);
  • Analytics cookies used by the website operator to collect aggregate information on the number of users and on how they visit the website;
  • Functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a number of selected criteria (e.g. language, the product selected for purchase) in order to improve the browsing experience on our websites; these cookies are essentially persistent.
For these types of cookie, specified in the tables contained in the chapter "Lists of technical cookies", the user’s prior consent is not required.

Third-party cookies

These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies are currently set by LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

We also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to collect information about visitor data such as age, gender and interests. Again, this information cannot be used to identify who you are and is for the purpose of internal analysis. If you wish to opt-out, download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
