regarding "Identification of simplified methods for disclosure and the acquisition of consent
for the use of cookies" of May 8th,2014, the extended information concerning the use of
cookies on this site is given below.
About cookies
Cookies are small text files that websites transmit to users' terminals (usually to the browser)
where they are stored and then re-transmitted to the site when the user next visits it. While
navigating on a website a user may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers
(third parties), which may contain various elements, such as images, maps, sounds, or
specific links to pages of other domains, present on the site that the user is visiting. Cookies,
which are normally stored on users' browsers in large numbers, including long persistence
cookies, are used for various aims such as the execution of digital authentications, session
monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning the users who
access the server, etc.
Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided into two macro categories: "technical cookies" and "proliferation
Technical cookies
Technical cookies are the cookies used exclusively to "transmit a communication on an
electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly required by a company service
provider responsible for delivering information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user
in order to provide said service" (cf. art. 122, subsection 1, of the Italian data protection act).
Technical cookies are not used for ulterior motives and they are normally installed directly
by the owner or operator of the website. Technical cookies can be further subdivided into
navigation or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the site
(making it possible, for example, to make a purchase or gain access to reserved areas of
the site); analytics cookies, which are similar to technical cookies when used directly by the
website operator to gather information in aggregated form concerning the number of users
and on how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate in
accordance with a set of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in
order to improve the level of service provided.
There is another type of cookies called "flash cookies" (Local Shared Objects), which are
used in Adobe Flash Player to distribute certain types of content such as video clips or
animations, in order to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the
user's device, but they are controlled by a different interface with respect to that supplied by
the browser.
The Adobe website http://www.adobe.com/devnet/security.html contains information on how
to remove or deactivate the Flash cookies related to a specific domain. Prior consent of
users is not required for the installation of flash cookies, although it remains mandatory to
publish the privacy practices pursuant to art. 13 of the Italian data protection act, which the
site operator, if using exclusively these devices, can provide with the methods it deems most
Proliferation cookies
Proliferation cookies are designed to create user profiles and they are used in order to
transmit advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during his
or her navigation on the Internet. Due to the invasive nature that such devices may have in
relation to user privacy, European and Italian regulations state that the user must be
adequately informed in relation to the use of proliferation cookies and provide explicit valid
consent for their use. Proliferation cookies are addressed by art. 122 of the Italian data
protection act, which prescribes that "the storage of information on the terminal device of a
contractual party or user or access to information already stored on the device is permitted
solely on the condition that the contractual party or user has expressed his or her consent
after being informed by means of the simplified methods as at article 13, subsection 3 (art.
122, subsection 1 of the Italian data protection act).
Technical cookies are installed on the website the user is browsing. Technical cookies are
necessary to navigate on the web site, they allow to use main task and safeguard
connections, maintain the session identifiers and store information concerning the
authentication. Without technical cookies any or all web-site tasks may be unavailable.
This site does not use proliferation cookies.
The following section describes third party cookies that may be used by the web-site, as well
as links by means of which any users may obtain further information and request their
