Definitions, features, and application of the legislation

Cookies are small text files that the websites you visit send and store on your computer or mobile device, and then retransmit them to the same websites on the following visit. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to visit that site or navigates from one page to another. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users who access a website and may also contain a unique identification code that allows the user’s navigation within the Platform itself to be tracked for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a website, the user may also receive cookies from websites or servers other than the one he is visiting on his computer (so-called “third-party” cookies).

Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the operation of the Website.

There are several types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s computer for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a predetermined expiry date.

According to the applicable legislation, the express consent of the user is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, “technical cookies”, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not usually require such consent. In other words, these are cookies that are essential for the operation of the Website and necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

For “profiling cookies”, on the other hand, i.e. those aimed at creating user profiles and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of web browsing, the user’s prior consent is usually required.

The Website uses the following cookies that can be de-selected, except for third-party cookies for which you will have to refer directly to the relevant methods of selection and de-selection of the respective cookies, indicated by means of links:
