Cookie Policy


Cookies are small text files (letters and/or numbers) that allow our web server to store information on the customer (the browser) to be reused over the course of the same visit to the website (session cookies) or subsequently, even some days after (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by a single browser on the specific device being used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behaviour and the use of the services.
In the following sections of this document, we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies using simply the term “cookies”.


Based on the characteristics and use of cookies, we can distinguish different categories:
Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the website to run properly and are used to manage the login and access to the website’s restricted functions. The duration of cookies is limited to the session in progress (on closing the browser, they are deleted).
Analytical and performance cookies. These cookies are used to anonymously collect and analyse traffic and how the website is used. Even without identifying the user, these cookies detect, for example, if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow for monitoring of the system and improvement of its performance and usability. These cookies may be deactivated without any loss of functionality. Profiling cookies. These are permanent cookies used to identify (both anonymously and not) a user’s preferences and to improve his or her navigation experience. This website does not use cookies of this type.


When you visit a website, you may receive cookies either from the website you visit (“owners”), or from sites operated by other organisations (“third parties”). A good example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are part of the pages of the website visited, which are generated directly by the third party and integrated in the hosting web page. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant privacy policy, to which you should refer. For the sake of transparency and convenience, here are the web addresses of the different policies and cookie management methods.

Facebook’s policy:

Facebook (settings): access your account. Privacy section. Privacy informations.

Twitter’s policy:

LinkedIn’s policy:

The website also includes components sent by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). (“Google”). Also in this case, these are third-party cookies that save and manage data anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the hosting website (performance cookies).

Google Analytics uses cookies to collect and anonymously analyse information (including IP addresses) on the behaviour of the users of the website. This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it to provide reports on users’ activities on the website. This website does not use (and do not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identifiable information. Google does not match IP addresses to any other data in Google’s possession, nor does it try to make a connection between an IP address and a user’s identity. Google may transfer this information to third parties when required by law or to third parties who process the information on Google’s behalf. See the following link for more information:

Users may selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google in their browser. To disable Google Analytics, please refer to the link below:


Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or until the user logs out. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user.
These are called persistent cookies and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases they have an expiry date, in others their duration is unlimited.


The user can decide whether to accept cookies using the settings of their browser.
Warning: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies may compromise the use of the website features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
The disabling of “third party” cookies does not in any way affect the browsability.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. Furthermore, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” cookies and those of “third parties”.
