1) Collection of data through Cookies
A cookie is a small text string that the sites visited send to the user's computer browser, where they are stored when the latter visits a website, to then be re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit.
Cookies are used by the Company to make the Site work or to improve its performance, but also to provide information on the Site or on the User's navigation.
1.1 Technical cookies
Technical cookies are essential to allow the User to move within the Site and to use its functions, to remember the user's choices (e.g. language, country of origin, etc.), to distribute requests across multiple servers, to memorize when the User gives his consent to certain options (for example by accepting the use of certain cookies by overcoming the information banner), to allow the User to view content and videos via Adobe Flash Player. These cookies have a duration of 15 days and do not require the User's consent.
1.2 Performance and analytics cookies of the Company
These cookies can be session or persistent, and their use is limited to the performance and improvement of the Site. These cookies make it possible to recognise, measure and keep track of visitors to the Site, thus allowing improvement and refinement of the Site, for example by establishing whether the User can easily find the information he/she wants, or by identifying which aspects of the Site are of greatest interest. These cookies are used by the Company to process statistical and anonymous analyzes on how users navigate on the Site, on the number of pages visited or the number of clicks made on a page while browsing. These cookies are assimilated by the privacy legislation to technical cookies, therefore they do not require the User's consent.
