Subject Matter of the Policy
Our company makes use of web technologies, known as "cookies" in these pages and this policy aims to clearly and precisely illustrate the ways in which they are used. This document cancels and completely replaces any previous instructions provided by the company about cookies, which should therefore be considered completely outdated.
What are cookies?
Cookies are strings of text (small files) that are sent to your terminal (PC, tablet, smart phone, etc.) by the sites you visit, where they are saved and then sent back to the same websites that sent the next time you visit.
Types of Cookies and their Purposes
This website uses the following types of cookies:
1. Technical cookies: provide the user with optimised, fast navigation on the website and the efficient use of services and/or the various options that it offers, allowing, for example, users to make purchases or authenticate themselves to access reserved areas. These cookies are needed to improve website usability, however they can be disabled.
2. Analysis cookies: these are anonymous and aggregate web analysis tools that provide information on how users utilise the website, how they arrived there, the number and duration of visits, etc. These cookies allow for websites to be improved, for example, by facilitating access for users and compiling statistics. These cookies are not needed for the optimal functioning of the website and therefore can be disabled.
3. Profiling cookies: these are tools that allow for a detailed "profile" to be created for the individual consumer, allowing targeted advertising to then be sent. In particular, every time that the user enters the website, information is collected via the analysis of their behaviour on individual pages, their habits, tastes, preferred products, etc. This allows our company to "catalogue" the user and show them personalised advertising. These cookies are not needed to browse the site and can therefore be disabled.
4. Third-party Cookies: these are cookies installed on the user's terminal by the operators of third-party sites via this site. Third-party cookies are mainly intended for analysis and mostly come from Google Analytics features. You can get more information on Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: www.google.it/intl/it/analytics.
To disable cookies and prevent Google Analytics from collecting your browsing data, you can download a browser add-on to disable Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Specifically, users can set their browser to "private browsing", whereby their browser stops saving the history of visited sites, as well as any passwords entered, cookies and other information on the visited pages.
We would like to advise you that if users decide to disable all cookies (even technical ones), the quality and speed of the services offered on this site could diminish drastically and they may lose access to some sections of the site.
