Categories of Data Subject to Processing

The data processed by the Data Controller are “personal data” (as per Art. 4.1 of the GDPR) provided by you. In particular, the categories of relevant personal data may include, but are not limited to:

  • Any demographic and identification data (for example, but not limited to, name and surname, etc.);
  • Any contact data (IP address, email address, and similar data) and browsing data.

Processing of Data Useful for Navigation Purposes

The computer systems and software procedures tasked with the operation of this website acquire, during their normal exercise, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

These are pieces of information that are not collected to be associated with identified individuals, but which by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

Among the information that may be collected are IP addresses, the type of browser or operating system used, addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation, the domain name, and the addresses of the websites from which access or exit was made (referring/exit pages), the time when the request was made to the server, the method used, and information about the response obtained, further information about the user’s navigation on the site (see also the section related to cookies) and other parameters related to the user’s operating system and computer environment.

These same data could also be used to identify and verify responsibilities in the event of potential computer crimes against the website.


Use of Cookies

When you visit any website, it can store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies. This information may concern you, your preferences, or your device and is largely used to make the site work as you expect. The information typically does not directly identify you but can provide a more personalized web experience. Because we respect your right to data protection, you can choose not to allow certain types of cookies. Click on “Cookie Settings” and on the headers of the different cookie categories to learn more and change the default settings. However, disabling some types of cookies may have consequences for your browsing on the site and the use of the related services we can offer.

The following information is provided to the user in accordance with the provisions of the Italian Data Protection Authority’s simplified notice on cookies of May 8, 2014, titled “Identification of simplified methods for providing information and obtaining consent for the use of cookies.”


What are Cookies? And What Cookies Do We Use?

Cookies are small text strings that a website can send to your device (whether it’s a computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet) during your navigation. The same website that transmitted them can then read and record the cookies found on your device to obtain various types of information. What kind of information? Each type of cookie has a well-defined role.


How Many Types of Cookies Exist?

There are two fundamental macro-categories with distinct characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are generally necessary for the proper functioning of the website and to enable navigation. Without them, you may not be able to view pages correctly or use certain services. For example, a technical cookie is essential for keeping the user logged in throughout their visit to a website or for storing language and display settings, among other things.

The technical cookies used on this website can be further categorized as follows:

  • Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential for the operation of the website, especially in terms of normal navigation and use. They cannot be disabled in our systems. They are usually set only in response to actions you take that constitute a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in, or filling out forms. You can set your browser to block these cookies, but this may result in some or all parts of the site not functioning properly. These cookies do not store personal information.
  • Analytical Cookies: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can evaluate and improve the performance of our website. They help us understand which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors navigate the site. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not authorize these cookies, we will not be able to evaluate the navigation and collective behavior of our users and consequently improve the performance of the site.
  • Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow the website to provide advanced functionality and customization, enabling navigation based on a set of selected criteria (e.g., language, selected products for purchase). They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services have been added to our pages. If you do not authorize these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.

Profiling cookies are designed to profile the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during their navigation.

  • Profiling Cookies: Profiling cookies can also be used by third-party companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on this and other websites.

These cookies can only be set through our website by our advertising partners, so they are third-party cookies. These cookies are based solely on identifying your browser and your internet device. If you do not authorize these cookies, you will not be shown or sent the aforementioned advertisements, nor will profiles of your interests be created. Refusing or revoking consent for the use of one or more profiling cookies will not interfere with your ability to access the website or browse it.

Cookies can also be classified as:

  • First-party cookies: These are cookies generated and managed directly by the website operator you are currently visiting.
  • Third-party cookies: These are cookies generated and managed by entities other than the website operator you are currently visiting, typically as a result of a contract between the website owner and a third party.
